Don't Let Them Derail the Voting Rights Act

A small group of Southern lawmakers have derailed a House vote to renew expiring provisions of the Voting Rights Act (VRA), the landmark law that has protected the right to vote for millions of Americans.

They want to gut the act and make it easier to discriminate against minority voters. Not surprisingly, these lawmakers represent states with the worst records of continued voting discrimination.

We can’t let a small group of lawmakers destroy 40 years of progress! Email your representative and tell him or her to renew the VRA now. Go to http://action.aclu.org/vra

The Fannie Lou Hamer, Rosa Parks, and Coretta Scott King Reauthorization and Amendments Act of 2006 (H.R. 9) would renew the expiring provisions of the VRA. It is precisely because of the provisions that prevent voter discrimination that progress has been made in securing voting rights for all citizens.

The ACLU is running an ad this week in Roll Call, a Washington D.C. newspaper that is widely read by members of Congress. The ad urges lawmakers to renew the VRA. Our ad can only be strengthened when members of Congress hear from their constituents.

Please contact your representative right now and tell him or her to support H.R. 9 and oppose any changes that would weaken the VRA.

Congress must not allow a small group of lawmakers to return us to the days of Jim Crow.
