Protect The Vote - Support the VRAA

On this day the Voting Rights Act was signed into law.

It was landmark civil rights legislation that protected voters who had been systematically left out of the political process and robbed of their own political power. Of course, what we know today is that our vote is still very much under attack. But we don’t have to give in.

Our vote is #OurFight.

We encourage you to call upon Congress to pass the Voting Rights Advancement Act!

Visit the call to action from The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights HERE!
