JOHN LEWIS VOTER ADVANCEMENT DAY

Join us in our Oakland Votercade car caravan and Tailgate Rally as we mobilize in the name of John Lewis as part of 100+ events across the nation!

The voting rights of America’s Voters of Color and Youth Voters are under attack nationally by state legislators introducing and passing laws to suppress their participation in elections.

Meanwhile, big business and billionaires are able to spend unlimited amounts of funding to buy our elections.

We must pass the For the People Act (H.R. 1), the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act (H.R. 4), and D.C. Statehood, yet the filibuster must be addressed in order to do so.

Together, we can build a better nation and a stronger democracy!
