Voting Rights

Voting is power because it allows us to have a say in who has influence over issues that affect our daily lives. Voting gives voice, and the ability to give voice offers individuals a sense of belonging and self‐worth. When we help uphold the Voting Rights Act, we are guarding this dignity and showing marginalized groups that their civic involvement matters.
