The freedom to vote is one of the most powerful tools we have in our democracy, and it’s under attack.
Extremist politicians have introduced over 400 bills nationwide to suppress our vote and are gerrymandering states to disenfranchise millions of American voters. We must fight back by passing the Freedom to Vote Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, and the DC Statehood Act to ensure equal access to the ballot box for every eligible voter.
That’s why we’re mobilizing in a new and powerful way, joining together with people from across the country to relay from West Virginia to Washington, D.C.
On October 20th, the Caravan for Voting Rights will travel from Charleston to Charles Town. In Charles Town, the caravan will be welcomed at the Freedom to Vote Relay Kick Off at 5:30PM at Evitts Run Park. This gathering will include speakers, food & music. We ask that you wear masks and remain physically distant.
For folks joining in the Freedom to Vote Relay the next day, supporters, runners, walkers and bikers will meet at “The Point” in Harpers Ferry on October 21st at 8:30AM where we’ll be joined by Reverend Ronald English for a Freedom to Vote Relay Send Off.
Join us on the caravan/relay from West Virginia to D.C., the Rally at the Finish Line on October 23rd, or stops along the way. With a major vote expected later this week, we need to push harder than ever to make sure the Senate does what it takes get the #FreedomToVoteAct across the finish line.
