Support the Democracy Restoration Act!

Every American citizen deserves a voice in our democracy, but right now 4.4 million Americans who work, live and pay taxes in their communities can’t vote because of previous convictions.

Shutting this many people out of our democracy, half of whom are African-American, is positively un-American.

The Democracy Restoration Act, currently before Congress, would fix that by restoring federal voting rights to anyone who’s served his or her sentence.

Contact your lawmakers right now and ask them to co-sponsor the Democracy Restoration Act!
