Demand Congress fix the VRA!

On June 25, the Supreme Court struck down Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act, the formula used to determine which states needed preclearance to change their voting laws. 

As expected, in the days since the ruling, states have already begun to enact harsh voter ID requirements, modern day equivalents of poll taxes, and other laws to make it harder for communities of color—as well as young, female, elderly, and disabled voters—to cast their ballots.

But this affront to our fundamental rights does not need to be permanent. The Supreme Court’s ruling gives Congress the authority to change the formula so that all states require preclearance before changing their laws.

Congress must move into action and fix the Voting Rights Act to protect the millions of Americans who are at risk of losing their right to vote. Help @NAACP protect voting rights by demanding Congress take immediate action.
