Austin Rally to Restore Voting Rights Protections
June 25, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Hosted by – Public Citizen, Common Cause Texas, the Texas Civil Rights Project, TexPIRG, League of Women Voters, and MOVE Texas
It’s time to rally for voter protections! The month marks the sixth anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Shelby County vs. Holder, which gutted voter protections in the Voting Rights Act. The ruling has led to discriminatory voting laws across the country – including voter ID laws and gerrymandering.
Voting rights advocates are pushing back with a National Day of Action to demand that Congress restore voting rights protections by passing the Voting Rights Advancement Act (HR-4).
Please join us at City Hall to rally for voter rights!
