Action Alert
No more voter suppression

The North Carolina General Assembly is returning to Raleigh on Friday, August 18 for another Special Session — this time to address "bills related to election law." If history is any guide, that could mean more attempts by lawmakers to restrict and suppress voting, especially for people of color in North Carolina.

Tell your representative to protect voting rights for all and oppose any bill that would make it harder for people in North Carolina to cast a ballot.

It's time to say enough is enough. Voter suppression — past and present — is a shameful Jim Crow tactic that helps fuel the dangerous rise in white supremacy and racial injustice we are witnessing across the country. There is no place for it in North Carolina in 2017.

Take a stand for racial justice and against white supremacy. Tell your legislator: No more voter suppression.

I urge you to oppose any new proposals that would make it harder for North Carolinians to vote.

Elections are the cornerstone of our democracy. They should be free, fair, and accessible to all eligible voters. New restrictions on the right to vote - such as requiring IDs that many North Carolinians lack - would violate that principle.
