I was harassed.

I was jailed.

I was beaten bloody.

All because I stood up for my right to vote…and the rights of millions of other African Americans across the country.

That was over 50 years ago.

Friends, we cannot go back to a time when our voices were silenced

the right to vote is still under attack today.

The Supreme Court dismantled the Voting Rights Act. State legislatures across the country are passing restrictive laws that keep African Americans from the polls. And Republicans in Congress have voted to eliminate the Election Commission.

We all need to stand up and say this is wrong. And we can’t back down until the right to vote is protected in every corner of our country.

So, will you join me? Please sign your name today and protect the right to vote:


Thank you for standing up and speaking out,

John Lewis
