This past November, despite the pandemic and deliberate barriers from day-long lines to attempts to eliminate drop-off locations, voters turned out in record numbers to have our voices heard and elect leaders who will govern in our name. In the months that followed, certain politicians doubled-down on attempts to silence us by erecting new barriers to voting and thwarting attempts to make ours a true democracy.
And Still I Vote is a campaign to protect the freedom to vote through the passage of federal legislation that will help to realize the full promise of democracy for all in the United States. It is a campaign of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the nation’s oldest and largest civil and human rights coalition made up of more than 220 national organizations working to build an America as good as its ideals. Voting is the most democratic tool we have available to us, and it’s up to us to create a democracy where every eligible voter can cast a ballot, and have it counted.
Here are ways you can join us in our efforts to ensure voting rights for all Americans, regardless of race, background, or political party.
