From our friends at Promote the Vote Michigan.

Last week voting rights advocates, community leaders, and lawmakers filled a Senate Elections and Ethics Committee hearing room to talk about the Michigan Voting Rights Act (MI VRA). Leaders including Yvonne White, president of NAACP Michigan State Conference, spoke passionately about finishing the work civil rights leaders started 60 years ago. The room was filled with excitement and hope, and more than a few tears were shed while listening to Miss White’s moving testimony.. It’s not every day that we have the opportunity to pass historic legislation that will cement Michigan as a national leader when it comes to protecting voters. Email your lawmaker right now, and urge them to support the Michigan Voting Rights Act (MI VRA).
When the Federal Voting Rights Act (VRA), passed in 1965, it was hailed as the “crown jewel” of America’s civil rights laws. And for good reason, it outlawed discrimination in voting and registration based on race, color, or language-minority status. But the VRA is under attack, and has been weakened over the years. That’s why it’s so critical that we pass the MI VRA now to ensure that all Michigan voters will be protected no matter where they come from, what they look like, or what they believe.
