Make your voice heard! Get involved. Democracy is not a spectator sport!

Take Action!

Get involved! There are many ways to have your voice heard by elected officials and policy makers. Take action on League priorities today.

Defend Equal Access to the Ballot

Every day, the freedom to vote is under attack. Since the Supreme Court decision of Shelby County v. Holder that gutted the Voting Rights Act (VRA), at least twenty-nine states have passed ninety-four laws that make it harder to vote, with the burden falling hardest on Black voters and other voters of color.

Urge Your Representatives to Prevent Voter Discrimination and Support the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.

Protect Our Youth From Climate Change

Climate change and its effects threaten the physical, psychological, and economic well-being of our nation, particularly our youth.

Urge your Members of Congress to cosponsor the Children’s Fundamental Rights and Recovery Resolution to address climate change and protect our youth’s futures! 

Support the Expansion of Voting Rights

Voting is a fundamental right, and all Americans deserve an equal opportunity to make their voices heard in our democracy.

Increased accessibility to the electoral process ensures that every eligible voter can exercise their right to vote. Congress must know how the people feel: empowering eligible voters to cast their ballot strengthens our democracy.

Please add your name to show Congress that we support voting rights!
