About the Event

Join us as we make our voices heard in the pursuit of equitable voting rights! Meet-up at 10:45 outside the Federal Triangle Metro stop. Be sure to bring water, any snacks you may want, a face mask, and wear good walking shoes. This will be an outdoor event, so dress and pack appropriately. 

Since January, 48 states have introduced 389 bills that amount to shameful, outright voter suppression, and many have already become law. These laws  suppress voting methods that enrich our democracy and lead to high  turnout: banning ballot drop boxes and mail-in voting, reducing early  voting days and hours, restricting who can get a mail-in ballot,  prohibiting officials from promoting the use of of mail-in ballots even  when voters qualify, even criminalizing the distribution of water to  voters waiting in the long lines these laws create.

Racist, anti-democratic voter suppression laws amount to rigging the  game. But in America, elections are not a game—and lives depend on their outcomes.
