August 6, 2017
Press Release

Today we celebrate the 52nd anniversary of the enactment of the Voting Rights Act. The 1965 law is a crucial milestone in our democracy that all people are created equal and have the right to vote without harassment, discrimination, coercion, or the threat of violence. The Voting Rights Act symbolizes a victory for the men and women who fought tirelessly for the civil rights of those who faced discrimination throughout our country’s history.

We must remember that our fight to protect voters’ rights is not over. Let’s honor the 52nd anniversary of the Voting Rights Act by strengthening voter protections and upholding the promise of our democracy.
