The Senate just introduced the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act (JLVRAA), which will fully restore the Voting Rights Act (VRA) and ensure renewed oversight, accountability, and justice in our democracy. We must ensure that every voter is treated fairly at the ballot box and has equal access to vote.
The attack on our freedom to vote must come to an end.
Since the Supreme Court decision in Shelby County v. Holder, rolled back key provisions of the VRA, the voting rights of millions have been threatened. These attacks have become more prevalent in the last few years, with the VRA being further comprised in the more recent Brnovich v. DNC.
We cannot stand for a democracy that enables such regressive and dangerous attacks, which disproportionately impact Black and brown voters.
The new version of the JLVRAA will restore the VRA and put an end to discriminatory voting policies.
At this critical moment in our nation’s history, we need the JLVRAA! Tell your senators to vote yes on the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and live up to the full promise of American democracy.
