|Dear Partners and Allies,
Last chance to add your name to our petition asking Senator Manchin to support to support the NVAA. Senator Manchin is one of only two Democrats in the Senate who has not co-sponsored the Voting Rights Advancement Act (VRAA).
We will be hand delivering the petition signatures to Senator Manchin’s Charleston office tomorrow, June 1 at 1PM.
However there’s still more time to send a letter from your organization to Senator Manchin asking him to support this important legislation.
Click here to download a sample letter. Letters should be sent to the following members of Senator Manchin’s staff:
Legisaltive Correspondent, Thomas Lucas, Thomas_Lucas@manchin.senate.gov; Legislative Counsel, Doug Calidas, Doug_Calidas@manchin.senate.gov; and Chief of Staff, Patrick Hayes, email@example.com.
What is the VRAA? The Voting Rights Advancement Act (VRAA) would address the Supreme Court’s 2013 decision in Shelby County v. Holder with the following initiatives:
Please keep in mind that the third anniversary of the Shelby decision is June 25.
Thanks again for your consideration! If you have any questions or concerns please contact Julie at (304) 346-5891 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting on June 15.
Julie & Natalie
