This is a message from Kam S., a MoveOn member in Cambria Heights.
This Thursday I'm going to Representative Gregory Meeks's office to make a really important delivery. I'm going to hand-deliver a list of constituents who've signed a petition urging Rep. Meeks to support the Voting Rights Amendment Act of 2014.
Your name isn't on it ... yet.
There are 241 people in our district who have already signed but our goal is to have 300—so Rep. Meeks knows how important the issue of voting rights is to his constituents.
Can you click here to add your name before I deliver the petition on Thursday?The Supreme Court's decision last year to strike down a key part of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 critically undermined voting protections and could make it harder to vote for hundreds of thousands of voters in the next election. This new, bipartisan legislation would fix that.
That's why this Thursday, thousands of MoveOn members across the country, including me, will hand-deliver petitions to local congressional offices asking our elected officials to make voting rights a top priority by supporting the bill and fighting to strengthen it. Every member of Congress, including long-time champions, needs to hear from us, so they know we've got their backs in fighting to fix the Voting Rights Act this year.
We still need more signatures to reach our goal of 300.
You can add your name here:
I hope you will help me have as big an impact as possible on Rep. Meeks this Thursday.
