From the League of Women Voters, “No More Excuses“:

“We said we’d be back.

Four times now, we have rallied in front of the White House to demand that President Biden use his bullypulpit to urge the Senate to do WHATEVER it takes to urge the Senate to take action to protect voting rights. But still, voting rights legislation has yet to be signed into law this year…on November 17, we’re calling yet again on President Biden to get the Senate to either FIX or NIX the filibuster and PASS the Freedom to Vote Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, and the D.C. statehood bill. Join us at Black Lives Matter Plaza and then Lafayette Square, in front of the White House, for a protest to show President Biden that we mean business and we won’t take no for an answer. No more excuses, Mr. President – we need you to take the lead on voting rights NOW!”

We will continue to show up at the White House until we see the Biden-Harris administration step up their commitment to voters and work with the Senate to secure the votes necessary to pass meaningful voting rights legislation.
The recent surge in anti-voter laws emerging from state legislatures around the country constitutes an attack on American democracy and the freedom to vote. Passing federal voting rights legislation is the most important priority right now. President Biden must do everything in his power to get it done.”

Voting rights are being attacked all across our country, and our leaders need to do everything in their power to protect them. That’s why we’re marching to the White House!

Stand Up! Show Up! Stand Up for Your Rights!

November 17 – Black Lives Matter Plaza – 10am ET

The Freedom to Vote Rally

Urging the Senate to act swiftly to pass robust national standards for federal elections, and to use every lever of power and influence to get this done.

Our Revolution, People for the American Way, Declaration for American Democracy, Black Lives Matter, Democracy Initiative, the Future Coalition and the League of Women Voters.
