The late Congressman John Lewis shed his blood crossing the Edmund Pettus Bridge to fight for Black voters and voters of color to participate in America’s electoral process and the enactment of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

Today, voting rights are still under attack by state legislators introducing and passing laws to put up barriers to election participation, while special interests and billionaires are spending unlimited amounts to buy our elections.

But we're coming together to fight back.

Join us on May 8 to demand the passage of the For the People Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and D.C. Statehood, and to address one of the greatest obstacles to the passage of civil and voting rights – the filibuster!

The Feminist Campus team is participating in the National John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Day of Action because voting rights are a fundamentally feminist issue.

We are constantly witnessing the ways restrictive voter laws in different states impact young people and BIPOC the most, and often times these are the same voters who are working on the ground to mobilize their communities in support of feminist legislation. It is crucial that we fight for marginalized communities' representation at the polls by passing legislation that affirm and secure voting rights.

We hope you can join to become part of history and continue to fight to protect democracy, civil rights, and voter protections for all.
