Take Action to Stop Power Grabs, Protect Voting Rights
Click here for an update and actions you can take to stop legislative power grabs and attempts to politicize the judiciary. With 43 states, including West Virginia, trying to make it harder to vote, we must take action to fight suppression efforts. At the WV Legislature that means opposing SB 565, which would limit access to early voting, gut automatic voter registration, and make it easier to remove voters from the registration rolls. Please take action today. More

Update: Still Time to Contact Delegates on HJR 2
It’s obvious that at least some members of the Legislature are under the mistaken impression that the acting Supreme Court that intervened in the impeachment of former Justice Margaret Workman stripped them of their power to impeach. This is completely false. There’s still time to contact your delegate(s) and tell them to vote NO on this dangerous, unnecessary amendment to our constitution. More

Power Grabs and a Gift to Special Interests
We're less than two weeks into the 2021 session and the WV Legislature is moving quickly to undermine the ability of West Virginia courts to defend our democracy and guard against abuses of power.
