ATTENTION: Tell Your Representative To Protect Voting Rights

The Supreme Court has made a major decision that impacts voting rights for every American.

In striking down Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act – but leaving Section 5 untouched – there is no longer a mechanism in place to prevent states with a history of voter disenfranchisement from enacting such laws.

While this is a setback, it is by no means the end of the game. The Supreme Court's decision gives Congress complete authority to ensure no person is denied the right to vote.

Communities of color, and young, women, elderly, and disabled voters are at risk. Tell Congress to take immediate action to protect the voting rights for millions of Americans. Sign the NAACP petition today.
