Our country is facing an existential crisis. Just this year, 19 states have passed 33 laws restricting voting rights, and more are likely to come as legislatures convene in about five weeks.
At the same time, state lawmakers across the country are currently gerrymandering their legislative maps to choose which voters they represent, instead of the other way around.
That’s why it’s imperative the Senate urgently passes the Freedom to Vote Act, which would protect everyone’s freedom to vote, end dark money in elections, stop partisan gerrymandering, and protect our elections from partisan sabotage.
Additionally, we must also pass the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to restore and strengthen the Voting Rights Act gutted by the Supreme Court and ensure voters are protected from future attacks on their freedom to vote.
In order to pass the Freedom to Vote and John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Acts, we are calling on the Senate to delay the recess set to begin on December 13, 2021, until these bills are passed.
