Today, on the one year anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision that gutted key provisions of the Voting Rights Act, the Senate will finally hold a hearing on the Voting Rights Amendment Act of 2014 (VRAA).
Access to the vote is not about politics; it's about justice and equality. The Voting Rights Amendment Act (VRAA) is the remedy that will help ensure equal access to the vote for all eligible Americans.
I joined members of Congress and leading civil and voting rights leaders at a press conference to call on Congress to move the Voting Rights Amendment Act (VRAA) forward. We gathered as a show of unity and to deliver the message that the League and our partners are serious about protecting voters.
