VRA for Today

Sign the Petition: Tell Congress the Time Is Now to Protect Voters. Restore the VRA Today

In June 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act. Since then, states and localities around the country have been making changes that discriminate against voters based solely on the color of their skin or the language they speak.

In this 50th anniversary year of the Voting Rights Act, voters are more vulnerable to discrimination than at any time since the law was first passed in 1965. Congressional leadership has yet to act on restoring the law to protect voters from discrimination.

Congress can no longer sweep these concerns under the rug. Congress must fulfill its obligations under the Constitution to eradicate voting discrimination by restoring the strength and effectiveness of the Voting Rights Act. Fifty years after brave Americans gave their lives for the right to vote, we cannot allow their legacy and the protections they fought for to continue to unravel.

Sign the petition to make sure your member of Congress hears from you about your support for voting rights:
