Back in June, the U.S. Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act in a 5-4 decision—and the results have been absolutely devastating.
States from Texas to Alaska have quickly passed laws making it harder for people to vote, disenfranchising communities of color.
Congress must take action now, and a bipartisan effort to adopt a new preclearance formula is moving forward. It is not everything we need, but is a crucial step in the right direction.
Sign our petition to members of Congress, urging them to fix the Voting Rights Act.
Our Message to Members of the 113th Congress
Please adopt a new preclearance formula to the Voting Rights Act, in order to preserve the crucial promise made in our Constitution—fair and equal access to the right to vote.
