The 2020 election had the highest turn out in modern history. But since then, hundreds of bills designed to restrict voting rights and even overturn election results have been introduced by state legislatures across the country; 33 have become law. These bills particularly target voters of color, low-income voters, and young voters. Congressional maps are being drawn right now through partisan, racial gerrymandering, that further suppress the voice of the people.
The Freedom to Vote Act which would stop voter suppression in its tracks is held hostage by the filibuster and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act faces the same uphill climb. Learn what’s at stake and how you can take action to protect and advance voting rights at this crucial hour.
Event by The Workers Circle and League of Women Voters of the U.S., and the Brennan Center for Justice
