Thanks to everyone who signed on to support AVR! We delivered the letters to our legislators and advocated with a great group of people from the North Shore. I have another action item for AVR. This bill has already had a hearing, and now a lobby day. It is still in committee. Let’s email the committee members, expressing our support of the bill. This is especially important given the Pence/Kobach commission investigating voter fraud (non-existent).
Feel free to modify the letter below, or share your own reasons for supporting this bill. You can email each person individually, or cut-and-paste all of the addresses into the BCC field of your email. Then each member will get a copy of the email, but will not see the entire list. And remember to CC your senators and reps!
This, from Robert Reich, explaining why AVR is so important in light of the Supreme Court gutting the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Let’s #BeTheChange and start with AVR.
