Protect Our Freedom to Vote Now!
Protect our freedom to vote—by passing the For the People Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, and D.C. statehood immediately—and confront right-wing attacks on voters and voting rights.
Why is this important?
We have a unique opportunity to protect the freedom to vote right now—and we need to take it because Republican attacks on voters and voting rights are only speeding up. Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives have passed the For the People Act, which includes bold measures to defend voting rights and take on Big Money. And now we need Senate Democrats to use every ounce of their power to pass the For the People Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, and statehood for the District of Columbia to ensure Republicans can't rig the rules in their favor and in support of their rich donors and corporate power.
Right-wing attacks on voting rights—and especially voters of color—are nothing new, but the current state-by-state attempts at voter suppression are amplified by Trump's destructive lies about the 2020 election. And as these measures take hold, it will require federal action to confront these right-wing attacks and protect our freedom to vote. Our freedom to vote should not depend on our zip code or the color of our skin.
Democrats need to act now while they hold the majority in both houses of Congress and the White House. There's no time to waste.
