‘‘The right to vote is the core of our democracy. Without it, we don’t have one. The flood of voter suppression bills we’ve seen proposed and passed across the country is an affront to our values.’’ — Sen. Bob Casey
In case you missed it: 18 states and counting have recently enacted measures to curb voting rights. It’s more clear than ever — we don’t have time to waste. It’s time for Congress to pass the For the People Act.
Democracy defenders like Stacey Abrams are fighting back against these blatant attacks on our right to vote — but she needs your help.
