Mobilizing in a new and powerful way — joining together to walk, run, bike and wheelchair from West Virginia to Washington D.C.
Extremist politicians nationwide are passing anti-voter legislation, making it harder for people — especially people of color — to vote. This, alongside highly-partisan congressional maps, is a blatant attempt to disenfranchise millions of American voters for the next decade.
This effort is supported by corporations and billionaires that spend unlimited amounts of money to buy elections and reach outcomes contrary to the will of the people.
But we can stop this by passing the Freedom to Vote Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, and DC Statehood.
If, by October, the Senate has refused to move these bills due to the continued abuse of the filibuster, we are going to need to pull out all the stops to get them across the finish line.
That’s why we’re mobilizing in a new and powerful way, joining together to walk, run and bike from West Virginia to Washington D.C. Thursday, October 21st, and to rally in DC when we arrive on Saturday, October 23rd.
