 We can't lose our values right now.

This fight isn't just about stopping the kind of voter suppression we saw in Georgia this month or the manipulation of voting maps that enabled it. It's also about bringing change to our communities and building a more just democracy.

Part of why we're seeing voter suppression at the polls and inaction on election reform in Congress is because elected officials who've engineered lopsided voting districts in the past know how consequential this year's elections will be.

They know they've got to win in November if they want to keep drawing up districts however suits them best.

They also know that you have the power to stop them.

We need to take concrete steps to address voter suppression. All On The Line has helped tens of thousands of people -- in all 50 states -- contact their elected officials to demand action on election protection. Will you chip in to our build momentum going into election season?

Right now, folks in places like North Carolina and Ohio are pressuring state lawmakers to support commonsense election reform. This kind of direct advocacy can go a long way as these states debate how to administer elections in the midst of a pandemic. If we want to see safe, fair, and accessible elections this fall, we need to advocate for solutions like vote-by-mail, early-vote, and online voter registration.

Stopping voter suppression is not just about protecting elections this year. It's also about passing commonsense election reform -- a step that will be consequential for the next decade. Will you help fund this fight, Sula?

RSVP: Join A.G. Holder at a virtual event on voting rights!

Voting rights are civil rights and -- we fight for civil rights.

Seven years ago, the Supreme Court gutted a key provision of the Voting Rights Act that had required certain states and jurisdictions with a history of voting discrimination to seek federal approval before changing any voting laws.

The Shelby County decision unleashed a sudden and persistent wave of restrictive voting laws in states across the country and, unsurprisingly, has had a disproportionate impact on communities of color who have historically faced additional and unnecessary barriers to casting their ballots. As Justice Ginsburg wrote in dissent of the decision, removing the preclearance requirement was like throwing away your umbrella in the middle of a rainstorm because you're not getting wet.

Tomorrow, Thursday, June 25 at 12pm ET, you'll have the opportunity to join A.G. Holder, as well the president of Let America Vote, Tiffany Muller, and our president, Kelly Burton, for an hour-long discussion on the consequences of the Shelby County decision on voting rights. They'll break down the impact of the Court's reckless ruling and provide the roadmap to how we are fighting back to restore voting rights to everyone.

Register for Thursday's virtual event "Seven Years Under Shelby: A Conversation on Voting Rights" here! After you RSVP. you will receive a link to tune into the online discussion that begins at 12pm ET.
