Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voter Rights Advancement Act


Reform congregations can make a difference by participating in the Reform Movement Freedom to Vote Call-in Days, November 8-11. And then continuing to follow RAC's efforts to pass this critical legislation.

Voting rights are under attack as forty-seven states including Texas and Georgia passed laws that make it harder for people to vote. On the positive side, two sweeping Federal bills – the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voter Rights Advancement Act – could become law and prevent voter interference and suppression, but only if the filibuster is amended to allow a majority vote. Our calls to our Senators and to President Biden could make the difference. We need to urge Schumer and Biden to do everything possible, to use every carrot and stick they have available, to make sure these two Freedom to Vote bills are not defeated by the filibuster.

Thank-you for standing up for democracy and helping to represent Jewish values!
