For so many years, Black Americans did not have the right to vote. But in 1965, President Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act into law granting Black Americans that basic right.

However in 2013, the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act, effectively undoing its purpose.

Last year, John Lewis along with other House Democrats passed H.R. 4, a bill that would reverse the Supreme Court’s damage and restore the Voting Rights Act.

Sadly, this bill is still collecting dust on Mitch McConnell’s desk — he refuses to bring it up for a vote even now.

That’s why today we’re calling on Mitch McConnell to honor the life and legacy of John Lewis by bringing the Voting Rights Act immediately to the Senate floor for a vote and renaming it the John Lewis Voting Rights Act of 2020.

If you agree, add your name today and help us put pressure on Mitch McConnell to pass the Voting Rights Act and honor the legacy of one of this country's greatest civil rights icons.

We must not back down until the right to vote is guaranteed in every corner of our country.

We can no longer afford empty words when it comes to our basic right to vote. We need some of the action John Lewis showed us every day he was with us.

With your help, we can do just that. So please, take a moment to sign on today and make your voice heard.

Thank you in advance for signing on,

Team Kamala
