The Ohio Voter Rights Coalition is a coalition of nonprofit voting advocate organizations in Ohio, America. They are dedicated to ensuring that all eligible Ohio citizens maintain the right to vote in every election.
June 25, 2013 marks the date of the Shelby v. Holder decision, in which the U.S. Supreme Court invalidated a key provision of the Voting Rights Act. The Shelby case gutted a critical piece of civil rights legislation that has helped protect America from racial discrimination in voting since 1965.
A group of bipartisan lawmakers have introduced the Voting Rights Amendment Act (#VRAA) that restores the Act’s full protections. The amendment would apply to all 50 states.
There are several opportunities to help with this campaign to save voting rights.
1. Sign a petition to send Speaker Boehner a loud message that Americans want their voting rights protected.
2. Share their petition on Facebook and/or Twitter.
Act today for a better future tomorrow.
