Tell Congress to Strengthen, Support & Pass the Voting Rights Amendment Act!

Congress is taking up a critical new bill to strengthen voting rights. Contact your legislators and tell them to enhance, co-sponsor and vote YES on the bi-partisan Voting Rights Amendment Act of 2014!

Why is this important?

Last year, the Supreme Court gutted the landmark Voting Rights Act of 1965. Since then, state legislatures across the country have raced to implement new restrictive laws that would do exactly what the Voting Rights Act was meant to protect against.

We have a golden opportunity to stop that. Right Now.

On January 16, 2014, Representatives Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) and John Conyers (D-MI) and Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) introduced new bi-partisan legislation—the Voting Rights Amendment Act of 2014—that would strengthen the Voting Rights Act. This bill isn't perfect, but is the best vehicle we have for restoring the rights struck down by the Supreme Court last year.

Improving and passing this bill won't be easy. Already, opponents are gearing up to derail its passage. Despite the fact that the bill is bi-partisan, it's not guaranteed to pass.

Join us in calling on members of Congress to improve and co-sponsor this vital bill.
