Do Something

"The right to vote in our nation is in grave danger. It has been a year since the Supreme Court handed down its Shelby County v. Holder decision, [which weakened a key provision in the Voting Rights Act]," Wade Henderson, president of the Leadership on Civil and Human Rights, warned at a rally last week. This week, while lawmakers are in their home districts, he and other leaders are calling on African-Americans and other people of color to start contacting their elected officials and push them to take a stand on the Voting Rights Amendment Act.  Click here to access your lawmakers' contact information.   Joyce Jones (@BETpolitichick)
