*6/25/15 LWVUS: Tell Congress it's time to restore the Voting Rights Act! ...Fifty years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act (VRA) into law. The VRA was a cornerstone achievement of the civil rights movement and ensured that every American citizen, regardless of race, ethnicity or language, had equal access to the right to vote. But two years ago today, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a key part of the VRA leading to a full frontal attack on the voting rights of American citizens.

Despite public outcry since the Supreme Court's decision, Congress has ignored widespread voter discrimination and the will of the American people. Tell Congress it's time to restore the Voting Rights Act!
