To preserve our democracy, and ensure every person can exercise their right to vote

This is a very big deal, friends.

For decades, the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (VRA) was a critical check against anti-democratic efforts to silence and suppress the voices of millions of voters of color, blocking discriminatory voting laws before they could take effect.

One of the most important things we can do right now, is to sign this petition, provided by ActionNetwork.org, and sponsored by Daily Kos Democracy Project, to  Restore the Voting Rights Act and our freedom to vote – pass the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.”

The organizations advocating for these acts are a goldmine of information.

The Declaration for Democracy Coalition, which includes Clean Elections Texas,
Public Citizen, Standup America, and more than 257 other non-partizan, political action organizations.
