SPLC President Richard Cohen to speak today at Congressional forum on voting rights

MARCH 5, 2016

Dear Readers.

Today SPLC President Richard Cohen is joining members of Congress, including Congressman John Lewis, to discuss the importance of protecting the right to vote and the need for Congress to restore the Voting Rights Act.

The forum is hosted by Congresswoman Terri Sewell in Birmingham, Alabama, in conjunction with the 51st anniversary of the Selma Bridge Crossing.

Please read Richard’s testimony and the SPLC’s recommendations for improving ballot access.

And if you know someone who hasn’t registered yet, be pushy and help them get registered — and then make sure they vote. Find out about state deadlines and how to register today.

Your Friends at the SPLC
