54 years ago, the Voting Rights Act (VRA) was signed into law. But instead of commemorating the landmark voting rights legislation today, many advocates are in the trenches fighting to curb the voter suppression unleashed by the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to gut it.
Please remember that you are advocating as a constituent, not on behalf of the League. Thank you. Status of the Bills: the Crime Commission is accepting public comment on the bills. The General Assembly will reconvene November 18 and may vote at that time.
Comment in Person: If you would like to provide a two-minute public comment in person in Richmond, sign up information is here. We recommend arriving well before the sign-up time officially begins.
Please respond to this Action Alert in a timely manner. Thank you.
People of color are at an especially high risk of going uncounted in an underfunded #2020Census — which would deprive countless Americans of resources and political representation. We can’t let that happen. https://t.co/46yFl2YyaO
Six years after the gutting of the Voting Rights Act, the House Judiciary Committee held hearings on the VRA. With 2020 approaching Congress must take action to restore the VRA and empower our disenfranchised communities. #restorethevotehttps://t.co/Xp7n52ouLb
