We have a lot of questions for Jeff Sessions. For instance: Why did he prosecute civil rights activists who registered Black voters? Will he protect the right of all Americans to vote? Make sure your senator asks the tough questions. #AskSessions #voting #votingrights #sessions

1. #DoItFor Grace Hardison #VotingRights #RyeRolltothePOLLS #VOTEfor45 #Election2016
An excerpt about Grace from The Nation:
Just weeks before early voting began in North Carolina, Grace Bell Hardison, a 100-year-old African-American woman, was informed that her voter-registration status was being challenged. If she didn’t appear at a county Board of Elections meeting or return a notarized form, she would be removed from the voting rolls.

Hardison has lived in Belhaven, North Carolina, her entire life and voted regularly for the last 24 years, including in North Carolina’s presidential primary in March. “The first thing out of her mouth was ‘I can’t vote,’” her nephew Greg Sattherwaite said after she received the letter. “She loves to vote. She will not miss election time.” Hardison’s registration was challenged by Shane Hubers, a Belhaven Republican, after a mailing done last year by a candidate for mayor. Mail that was returned as undeliverable in 2015 became the basis for the challenge list.

But the mailings included many incorrect addresses. “My mail comes to the post office,” Hardison told WNCT TV, which brought attention to her plight in an October 18 broadcast. “I don’t have no mail come to the house. Ever since I’ve been here, my mail has been coming to the post office.” The challenge list compiled by Republicans also overwhelmingly targeted black and Democratic voters. “Of the 138 challenged, 92 of them were black and registered Democrats. 28 voters were unaffiliated, 17 were Republicans, and 1 was Libertarian,” reported WNCT.

"The vote is the most powerful instrument ever devised by man for breaking down injustice and destroying the terrible walls which imprison men because they are different from other men." Lyndon B. Johnson #Vote #VotingRights #Election2016

The 2016 election was the first in five decades without #VRA protections. The fight for #VotingRights is as urgent now as it was fifty years ago, and we won't give up until equal access to the ballot box is achieved. #RestoreTheVote #WearBlue

Please know that not all white people are assholes. It's a problem we're working on...it's something we'll have to solve one on one. @Regrann from @crisybarra0728 - @Regrann from @i.think.2 - As a white man it's a god damn shame what black people are still going through. From #policebrutality to rounding up and filling the prisons, and taking away their #votingrights and don't forget we pay them about $0.23/hr to work in prison on certain products we buy daily. If that's not #slavery then not sure what is. #BLM #think ❤️ #education #intelligence #compassion #equality #animalrights #resist - #regrann

Today marks four years since the #SupremeCourt stuck a dagger into the heart of the #VotingRightsAct, unleashing a new wave of #votersuppression across the South. It’s hard to fathom that America is backtracking on its modest protections for #votingrights, but that is now our reality, unless and until Congress acts to #RestoreTheVRA. Call your representatives today and urge them to support the Voting Rights Advancement Act to undo the shame of the #ShelbyCounty decision. Link in bio.

#SB4 challenges go beyond immigration law and the supremacy clause of the Constitution. The Voting Rights Act is in play, too. Celina Moreno of MALDEF explains at a plenary session at @naleoedfund convention. #votingrights #immigration #firstamendment #legaleducation

Today marks the four-year anniversary of the Supreme Court’s #ShelbyCounty v. Holder decision, which struck down the heart of the #VotingRightsAct. As a result of the Court’s decision, many Americans are without crucial #VotingRights protections in states and counties with severe records of #VoterDiscrimination. That is utterly wrong. In America, the #RightToVote is fundamental, and must be protected from any and all attempts to weaken it. It defines our nation’s values and allows for the proper representation of all communities. We must act now to pass the #VotingRightsAdvancementAct, so that we can strengthen protections for Americans at the ballot box and restore the right of eligible voters to participate in our democracy. #RestoreTheVOTE #RestoreTheVRA #VRAA

Today's adventure: #uxcampnyc featuring some of my new favorite mentors. Pictured here: @danachisnell on the incredibly varied and often onerous voter journeys in the U.S. Needless to say, we have a lot of work to do before everyone has equal access to their #votingrights. Knowing designers are on the case is a great first step.
