The Sacred Right to Vote
On this national holiday honoring the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) and the National Black Sisters' Conference (NBSC) have issued a joint statement calling on the Senate to do everything within its power to strengthen our democracy and protect every person’s sacred right to vote by passing the Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act. The full statement can be found on the LCWR website here.
We expect the Senate to take up the House Message, which the passed last week, on Tuesday. We encourage you to share this statement with your Senators first thing on Tuesday morning. You can send the link via email, tweet or by contacting your Senators via their webpage messaging system.
