Today, Tuesday, July 24, is an important day for voting rights in the District of Columbia. Now is the time for all League members to call their representatives. It will take only a few minutes and can mean a great deal
Today we will generate a critical mass of calls to urge Senators to support S. 1257 and to oppose any attempts to filibuster or block the bill. There will be a toll-free number —–1-866-346-3008 — for you to call your Senators. The toll-free number will take callers to a brief reminder about the importance of the DC House Voting Rights Act and then patch callers through to their Senators — at no cost.
Make your voice heard with those of other activists around the country. Ask your friends, family and other League members to call as well!
Citizens of the pay U.S. taxes, fight and die for the U.S. during wartime, and are governed by the laws that Congress passes. And yet they have no voting representation in Congress. They have only a non-voting delegate in the House of Representatives.
Please do your part and call today!
