Restore voting rights!

Restore voting rights!

Three years ago in Shelby County v. Holder, the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act. In the several states affected, among them North Carolina, Georgia, Arizona and Florida, the GOP has been working overtime to suppress voter turnout.

Last Saturday, June 25, marked the third anniversary of the Court’s decision. Groups all across the country are trying to heighten awareness about the ruling and demand Congress overturn it.

You can share a Facebook meme #Restorethevotingrightsact here. Folks are also encouraged to call their representatives in Congress and demand action. You can reach Congress at 202-224-3121.

A bill has been introduced to reverse the Supreme Court’s ruling, the Voting Rights Advancement Act (S. 1659 and H.R. 2867).

Tell your member of Congress to get it out of committee and up for a vote – this year’s election is critical and may be quite close.

Every vote must be counted and encouraged.

    The Communist Party USA is a working class organization founded in 1919 in Chicago, IL.

    The Communist Party stands for the interests of the American working class and the American people. It stands for our interests in both the present and the future. Solidarity with workers of other countries is also part of our work. We work in coalition with the labor movement, the peace movement, the student movement, organizations fighting for equality and social justice, the environmental movement, immigrants rights groups and the health care for all campaign.

    But to win a better life for working families, we believe that we must go further. We believe that the American people can replace capitalism with a system that puts people before profit — socialism.

    We are rooted in our country's revolutionary history and its struggles for democracy. We call for "Bill of Rights" socialism, guaranteeing full individual freedoms.
