John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act

Click here to go straight to the call scripts!

Hi Indivisibles,

On May 8th at noon, we’re joining the Bay Area Votercade in support of the national Day of Action for the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act: https://www.bayareavotercade.org/

“The voting rights of America’s Voters of Color and Youth Voters are under attack nationally by state legislators introducing and passing laws to suppress their participation in elections.

Meanwhile, big business and billionaires are able to spend unlimited amounts of funding to buy our elections.

Join us as we mobilize in the name of John Lewis as part of 100+ events across the nation to pass the For the People Act (H.R. 1), the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act (H.R. 4), D.C. Statehood and address the filibuster to do so.

Together, we can build a better nation and a stronger democracy.”

As part of the Day of Action, we’re also calling Sen. Feinstein and Sen. Padilla to urge them to advance voting rights.

Are you interested in advocating for progressive values on the state level? Consider joining one of the workgroups focused on specific topics such as Racial Justice, Democracy Reform, Healthcare, and Environmental Justice. Indivisible Yolo is part of the California StateStrong coalition of California Indivisible groups, and members are working together to follow priority bills closely.
