Take Action


Tell Congress: Do more to fight racism—Add your name to the petition

After the violence in Charlottesville, Congress must take concrete steps to stop white supremacy. Sign our petition and demand that our political leaders take the following 4 actions:

●Hold oversight hearings with leaders from the Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, and other agencies about efforts to prosecute hate and domestic terrorism crimes, and enforce civil rights and other laws that prohibit recipients of federal funds from engaging in discrimination.

●Oppose judicial and executive nominees who have given platform to, supported, or condoned white supremacist activities, organizations, or ideologies.

●Hold hearings on and pass legislation to restore the Voting Rights Act and other bills that would protect the vote, including the Voter Empowerment Act, the Automatic Voter Registration Act, and the Democracy Restoration Act.

●Refuse to allocate any funding to the Presidential Commission on Election Integrity.
