Join the March on Voting Rights on August 28, 2021 – in person in cities such as Washington, Atlanta, Miami, Houston, Phoenix, or through an online virtual event – to let lawmakers know that voting rights are a top priority.
The demographics and values of Americans are quickly shifting blue. States that were long Republican strongholds – like Texas, North Carolina, Arizona, and Georgia – are now either competitive or strongly leaning blue.
Republicans know they cannot win, now and especially in the years to comes, through fair elections. Their best path to victory is gerrymandering and suppressing votes, especially those of black and brown folks. Because of this, since January, they have introduced 389 bills in 48 states meant to make voting harder through voter ID laws, banning mail-in voting, appointing partisan election review boards, reducing early voting days and hours, and other measures.
Proposed bills, such as the For The People Act and the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Act, seek to protect voters across the United States and in doing so defend and strengthen our democracy. But they will only pass if voters like you and me demand it.
The March on Voting Rights is a nonviolent, nonpartisan mass mobilization to demand that elected officials protect democracy, denounce voter suppression, and ensure fair, easy access to the vote for all through the passage of comprehensive federal legislation.
