We’ve got plans to make history next weekend and you’re invited — join activists like you next Saturday to take part in the historic March On for Voting Rights in cities across the country. This comes exactly fifty-eight years after Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous “I Have a Dream” speech and led the historic March on Washington, calling on the nation to rise up and end the legalized racial discrimination plaguing the country.
Half a century later and in the middle of another racial justice reckoning, state legislatures around the country are trying to reinstate systemic discrimination at the ballot box. Now, Martin Luther King III will help lead Americans on another march in honor of his father. Whether you want to head to Washington, D.C., find a march near you, or join virtually, your members of Congress need to know that voting rights are on the line. Join us and demand that Congress act now by passing federal voting rights legislation.
Join the marches in person or online. Look for a local event!
This year alone, 48 states have introduced hundreds of voter suppression bills in an effort to stamp out participation in communities of color. Tactics like banning ballot drop boxes and mail-in voting, reducing early voting days and hours, restricting who can get a mail-in ballot, and more, are threatening our democracy in nearly every statehouse. Unfortunately, many of these racist, anti-democratic bills have already become law. Federal voting rights protections will guarantee everyone the right to vote — but we have to act now before it’s too late. Click here to sign up.
