WHAT'S AT STAKE: OUR RIGHTS TO VOTE AND PROTEST House Passes Landmark Voting Rights Legislation
"Vote-rigging in Republican-dominated states leads logically to a Republican extremist winning the White House in 2024." -- Heather Cox Richardson, Letters from an American, August 28, 2021
Last week, Congress moved one step closer to restoring an essential provision of the Voting Rights Act (VRA). On Tuesday evening, nearly 60 Years After the March on Washington, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the historic John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, H.R. 4, with all Democratic members voting in favor and all Republicans opposed.
Please contact Senators Merkley and Wyden, even if you've called before. Thank them for their support of S.1, the For the People Act, and urge them to continue to push for its passage. They need to know what their constituents, including you, want.
