John Lewis Voter Advancement Day Votercade

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 on May 8 from 2 PM-4 PM 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. The event will feature a votercade through North Charleston. Together, we can build a better nation and a stronger democracy.
