This is urgent. More than 400 voter suppression bills have been introduced in 49 states since January in an attempt to weaken and divide working people. Thanks to months of mobilization by CWAers and allies across the country, the House of Representatives has passed the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the For the People Act, bills that ensure the protection of voting rights at the federal level, overriding discriminatory and restrictive state laws.
Now we must put pressure on our Senators to step up and enact these critical pieces of legislation into law.
