We need the freedom to vote

Jun 25 2013

In a 5-4 decision the extreme right wing of the Supreme Court just gutted a signature achievement of the Civil Rights Movement, the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The Court's decision to strike Section 4 of the law, is just one piece of a broader coordinated attack on freedom to vote of Black people, women, young people and other people of color.

Now that the Supreme Court has struck down key protections of the Voting Rights Act, we must amend the constitution to protect our freedom to vote. A constitutional amendment would allow the federal government to set national minimum election standards to ensure free, fair and accessible elections for all.
