Dear fellow MoveOn member,
In 2013 the Supreme Court effectively gutted many of the protections inherent in the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
As a result states are finding new ways to stop more and more people—especially African Americans, low income Americans, and young people—from reaching the polls.
But there are some straightforward steps we can take that would protect everyone's access to the polls.
Voting rights are too important to be left to partisan politics. We must not allow anyone’s vote to be taken away.
And thanks for all you do.
P.S. As part of the Democracy Awakening, MoveOn is joining over 250 progressive organizations to organize for voting rights, to get money out of politics, and to urge the Senate to vote on the current Supreme Court nominee. I'm thrilled that Voter Suppression (and how it works) will have its first public screening as part of this massive effort. Learn more about Democracy Awakening here!
