Count Every Vote – Action Alert from National NAACP

The NAACP along with a coalition of leading civil rights groups met with President Biden to address the most pressing agenda item for our nation—voting rights. Although Congress continues to lag on pushing forward critical legislation that would protect our access to the ballot box, we remain undeterred in our cause. American democracy is nothing short of a farce if our most fundamental, sacred right—the right to vote—is chipped away. In our meeting with the Biden administration, we expressed an urgent need for legislation that provides equitable access to the ballot box, and offered strategies for mobilizing locally and nationally to ensure democracy works for all. Make no mistake, voter suppression is rampant, and with more and more restrictive measures being instituted in states across this country, incidents that were once outliers will soon become the norm. We have to act now. While the Black community is disproportionately targeted, voter suppression is an issue that affects every American. It is a direct assault on our constitution, and while those who wish to sow division among us might make it a partisan issue, recent elections have proved beyond a doubt that every single vote matters. So we make our plea to President Biden, Congress, and you, once again. Act now, and let’s put voter suppression behind us. https://naacp.org/actions/action-alert-voting-policy…
