CWAers Participate in Direct Action to Mark Voting Rights Act Anniversary

On Monday, to mark the anniversary week of the signing of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, activists from all over the country came to Washington, D.C., for a rally and direct action led by poor people, low-wage workers, and faith leaders. CWAers including District 6 Vice President Claude Cummings, Jr. and Secretary-Treasurer Sara Steffens, who was arrested during her participation in the nonviolent protest, were among those who took to the streets. Participants at the rally demanded Congress end the filibuster, pass all provisions of the For the People Act, fully restore the 1965 Voting Rights Act, and raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hr.
