No taxation without representation. The right to vote must be protected for ALL Americans.
Complete and unrestricted ballot access is essential to a functioning democracy. Throughout history, marginalized communities have had to fight hard for their right to participate in our electoral process in the face of extreme opposition and bigotry. But rather than protect their right to vote, establishment politicians have watched as state legislatures and administrations, enabled by the disastrous 5-4 Shelby County v. Holder Supreme Court decision, have restricted ballot access for partisan gain. It is more important now than ever to honor the Civil Rights Movement by expanding access to fair elections and improving our electoral system to guarantee that every vote counts equally.
