Vote for Our Lives Rally w. Nancy Pelosi, Reverend Barber and Others
June 9, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Especially during this current political climate, Congress should proactively take steps to protect the health and safety of voters, because nobody should have to choose between their health and their vote.
Join Speaker Nancy Pelosi, voting rights leader Reverend Barber, civil rights and labor icon, PFAW Board Member Dolores Huerta, Reverend Leslie Watson Wilson, PFAW Director of African American Religious Affairs, and representatives of voting rights and racial justice organizations on Tuesday, June 9 at 7pm ET (4pm PT) to hear about the need to provide funding to ensure we can vote safely during COVID-19.
In preparation to mark 7 years since the Supreme Court ruling in Shelby County vs. Holder, which allowed states to enact barriers to voting with impunity, our virtual rally will include a discussion of these obstacles and how they impact communities across this country, especially communities of color.
Speakers will also discuss how activists can engage senators and urge them to pass at least $3.6 billion in funding and the reforms in the HEROES Act to implement programs and invest in resources that can protect voters and our elections.
Our elections are too important for this to wait.
Thank you for your advocacy. Wishing you and your family health and safety!
