The Voting Rights Act of 1965 is a key bipartisan piece of legislation that cemented America’s position as a democracy for all. In the last fifty years, the entirety of the law has been renewed by Republican and Democratic Congresses and Presidents, until the Supreme Court struck down key provisions of the law in 2013. As thousands went to Selma to commemorate fifty years of voting rights, we must commit ourselves to pledge to restore the Voting Rights Act and protect the right to vote. Pledge to keep marching for Selma, and join us to continue the fight for voting rights.
TAKE ACTION AND COMMIT TO VRA REFORM
