In response to yesterday’s introduction of the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act in the Senate, Issue One’s Founder and CEO Nick Penniman released the following statement:
“The freedom to vote is a sacred tradition that must be protected. No matter your political ideology, ZIP code, skin color, or gender, we must ensure that every American has a voice in our democratic process.
“We strongly urge the Senate to pass this bill, just as the House of Representatives did earlier this year. We must seize this historic opportunity to build an inclusive democracy that works for everyone.”
