|The right to vote is one of the most valuable constitutional rights granted to most Americans. That is why the NAACP was pleased and proud to see H.R. 4, the Voting Rights Advancement Act pass the U.S. House of Representatives on December 6, 2019, by a decisive margin of 228 – 187, renamed the “John R. Lewis Voting Rights Act of 2020” on 7/27/2020; one week after Congressman Lewis’ death.For a full explanation of this bill, as well as information on how you can make a difference, please see the attached Action Alert and take Fast Action.
