We, the undersigned, urge Congress to pass H.R. 4, the Voting Rights Advancement Act, to undo the shame of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Shelby County decision and stop rampant racial discrimination at the polls.
The Shelby ruling has facilitated rampant racial discrimination at the polls.
Soon after the decision, Texas, North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and Virginia rushed to impose various measures to suppress voting by African-Americans and other racial and ethnic minorities.
And that trend has only worsened. More than two dozen states have imposed new voting restrictions since 2010.
This is a fixable problem: H.R. 4 would restore the Voting Rights Act and stop us from turning into a country with separate and unequal voting laws.
It’s up to us to pressure Congress to act.
Please share the petition with your network, and read our report now.
We must stop the billionaire Koch brothers from using their immense wealth to influence university research and spread their corporate-friendly ideology.
