What's On Our Mind

This weekend's National John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Day.

The 360 GOP-sponsored state bills that could stop up to three million people -- mostly Democrats -- from accessing the ballot box.

The 34 percent of women who could be turned away from the polls for not having the right voter ID because they got married, changed their name, but not their ID.

Transgender men and women who do not have an ID that accurately reflects their gender.

The GOP's efforts to block statehood for Washington, D.C. — a majority-black city.

The real reason for their objections expressed by Donald Trump: “You mean District of Columbia, a state? Why? So we can have two more Democratic—Democrat senators and five more congressmen?”

Every vote must count to elect JAC candidates who place country over politics.

S.1 (the #ForThePeopleAct), H.R.4 (the #JohnLewisVotingRightsAct), H.R. 51 (the #DCStatehood Act), and filibuster reform in the Senate.

Call your Senators (202-224-3121) and urge them to pass these measures.

A healthy democracy depends on all the people voting.
