Today, Texas Republicans' voter suppression law #SB1 went into effect. The law will limit poll hours, add barriers to VBM, make it harder for voters with disabilities to get assistance and more. But voting rights advocates are fighting back in court⤵️

It's the filibuster or voting rights. It's the filibuster or reproductive rights. It's the filibuster or LGBTQ+ rights. The choice is clear — it's time to end the filibuster.

The 2022 midterm election is less than one year away, and two pieces of essential voting rights legislation with majority support in Congress and among the public remain stuck in the U.S. Senate due to the filibuster, an arcane rule with a racist history.

"Without immediate federal action to restore the VRA, even our smallest towns aren’t safe from anti-democratic, racist redistricting that could have devastating impacts on people who simply want their voices heard."

“The question is does [Joe Biden] have the courage to actually stand up for the voters who had his back? Does he have the courage to stand up for our democracy, even as he convenes other nations for his democracy summit?”

The Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act must be a top priority on the remaining Senate agenda for the year. We urge senators to stay in session and do whatever it takes until these bills are passed. Inaction is not an option. #RecessCanWait

Many pressured corporations to take a stand against voter suppression, filed lawsuits, protested in D.C. and arrested, met with elected officials and more to protect the vote and federal legislation has not been passed. Unacceptable. Join the movement, text "WEMATTER" to 797979!

"This just goes to show that from eliminating our mobile voting units to slashing our ability to use drop boxes to cutting back the time voters have to request an absentee ballot, SB202 is a poorly created and damaging law.”

Republicans would abolish the filibuster in a second if it would allow them to restrict voting rights and ban abortion nationwide.

In regard to the Supreme Court, what is there to say? As long as women’s rights can be decided by a set of nine political appointees, we are not free. It is poor women, and/or women of color and/or rural women who will suffer the most if Roe is overturned.
