Urge Your Representatives to Support the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act

Urge Congress to Support the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act

Every day, the freedom to vote is under attack. Since the Supreme Court decision of Shelby County v. Holder that gutted the Voting Rights Act (VRA), at least twenty-nine states have passed ninety-four laws that make it harder to vote, with the burden falling hardest on Black voters and other voters of color.  

We need a fully restored VRA to defend our democracy and protect the freedom to vote. That is why the League is proud to support the reintroduction of HR14 and S4, the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, vital legislation needed to fully restore and modernize the VRA and ensure that discriminatory voting policies are stopped in their tracks. 

Tell Rep. Peltola, Sen. Murkowski and Sen. Sullivan to protect the freedom to vote and support the passage of the JRLVRAA. 

Equality — and our democracy — cannot wait.

100 Years of the Equal Rights Amendment

100 Years of the Equal Rights Amendment

Now is the time to ask our Representative and Senators to stand up for equality. Please take action today to demand that equality be part of the US Constitution. 

As an organization that defends democracy, the League of Women Voters believes that there cannot be a time limit on establishing equality. The ERA’s final ratification is needed to ensure equal rights for all, regardless of sex or gender. As a country, we are on the cusp of a victory for this long-awaited amendment. Congress must do the work to eliminate the timeline so that when the amendment is fully ratified, it can go into effect immediately.
