Our elections are under threat. People must be able to vote safely in November. Yet, Senate Republicans are blocking key funding needed to #ProtectOurVote.
Join us on August 11 4:30 - 5:30 PM PT (7:30-8:30pm ET) for a virtual town hall with Congresswoman Joyce Beatty, Congressman John Sarbanes and movement leaders to discuss why funding for safe elections must be included in the next COVID package, and what citizens can do to make themselves heard.
Despite COVID cases rising, the Senate Republicans proposed $0 (ZERO!) for critical funding needed to #ProtectOurVote. No one should have to choose between their health and their vote.

and everyone’s voice is heard.
