With the two key federal voting rights bills – the Freedom to Vote Act and John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act – stalled in the Senate, the fight for setting a national standard must continue. Civil rights and advocacy groups like Black Voters Matter are working round the clock to continue to apply pressure and ring the alarm on this issue.
To date, there have been a number of petitions shared to draw attention to this need to protect democracy and access to the polls. All a while the fight for federal voting rights legislation has been strengthened by a wave of Republican states implementing laws that restrict voter access, and essentially make it harder to vote, in the name of election security.
Black Voters Matter is proposing a One Million for Voting Rights campaign that will champion the country’s desire to see these two bills passed.
The fight continues. Voting Rights Now!
