|The CEO of the League of Women Voters, Virginia Kase Solomón, was Arrested at the White House
Due to the inconsistencies in voting rights and the enactment of may laws meant to curtail voting after the 2020 election, voting rights activists know “The Time is Up” to get the Freedom to Vote Act passed. The 2022 midterms are looming and time is short to enact these reforms. The October 19th action, where Solomon and 24 others were arrested, was led by the League of Women Voters of the United States, People For the American Way, Declaration for American Democracy, and Democracy Initiative.
