Sign this Petition and Demand that Congress Take Action to Protect Voting Rights

Your voting rights may be at risk! As of March 2021, policy-makers in 47 states have introduced legislation to restrict voting--some bills have already been signed into law. Sign this petition to demand that Congress take action to protect Voting Rights for historically disenfranchised communities. 

A recent Intersections of Our Lives poll shows that women of color voted at historic levels in the 2018 midterm election. Eighty-eight percent of respondents said the stakes were too high not to vote. Yet, 25 percent of Black, Latina, and Asian American and Pacific Islander women voters said they did not think their vote was counted accurately. 

They are trying to prevent us from voting. Tell Congress to pass the For the People Act of 2021 and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act now. 

Petition Text

The For the People Act of 2021 and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act will protect our votes and -make participating in democracy easier for millions-making elections freer, fairer, and more inclusive. 

 These bills are critical to protecting voting rights, especially for communities that continue to be disenfranchised by targeted voter suppression and discrimination. Our democracy and our ability to influence decision-making that impacts our bodies, lives and families is fundamentally threatened when we are not all able to participate in the democratic process.

The recent anti-voting rights actions taken by state legislatures across the country require an immediate response from Congress. We urge members of Congress to prioritize the passage of the For the People Act of 2021 and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.
