Voting Rights Act of 1965 Anniversary
On this day in 1965, the Voting Rights Act (VRA) was signed into law. The VRA was a monumental victory. It sent a clear message: every person has the right to participate in our democracy. Yet to this day, the VRA and all it stands for need defending.
Ten years ago, Shelby County v. Holder gutted many VRA protections; and today, anti-voter laws are a bigger threat than ever. On this VRA anniversary, let your representatives know they must expand the freedom to vote. Together we can build a stronger world, from 1965 to 2024 and beyond.
