Restore the Voting Rights Act!

This week is the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The VRA is under siege right now. GOP lawmakers in many key states are finding ways to restrict the right to vote. A key part of the VRA was invalidated by the Supreme Court in 2013. There is a petition being circulated by vratoday.org and the Leadership Conference at www.civilrights.org  Tell your congressman that you demand that action be taken in Congress to restore the Voting Rights Act 

""If we fail or cannot repair the damage done to this act ... we will be less a democratic country, a democratic society" Congressman John Lewis
