Today’s Action: Restore voting rights to disenfranchised Americans

We’ve seen a crushing wave of GOP-led voter restriction in recent years, mainly targeting people of color, the poor, the elderly, and young people. The real springboard of these atrocities was in 2013, when the right-wing Supreme Court shut down key elements of the historic Voting Rights Act, originally signed into law in 1965. Without these protections, the GOP has quickly reverted back to repressive practices that pre-date the Civil Rights Era.

The Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2019 (VRAA) would help to restore a key element lost from the original act: monitoring and tracking states with repeated offenses of voter suppression, and requiring federal oversight on any new voting law changes in those states.

Call or email your Members of Congress and ask them to cosponsor and support the Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2019 (H.R.4 and S.561). And if they’ve already cosponsored (House/Senate), thank them!

In the aftermath of the gutting of the Voter Rights Act, the GOP moved fast to target those who would vote against them:

  • Harsh voter I.D. laws that disproportionately affect voters of color and the poor
  • Consolidating polling stations, creating longer lines and inconvenient locations in minority areas
  • Purging voter rosters, forcing disenfranchised voters to re-register (and more likely, not vote at all)
  • Shortening early voting periods
  • ‘Missing’ ballots in majority-Black districts (hi, Georgia midterms)

These insidious tactics will be caught and corrected by the VRAA. For yourself, for your fellow voters, for those who cannot currently vote, and for the future of our democracy: call Congress.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and demand they support and cosponsor the Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2019 (H.R.4 and S.561). Be sure to check whether they’ve already cosponsored (House/Senate), so that you can thank them while you encourage them to aggressively move it forward.
