Resolutions Addressing Systemic & Structural Racism

Call to Action for Restoration of Voting Rights

Casting ballotThank you to all that support the call to action for restoration of voting rights legislation and contacted their Virginia state legislators to pass for the second time a constitutional amendment guaranteeing the right to vote for all Virginians 18 and over who are not serving time for a felony conviction – just as it was passed during the 2021 General Assembly. Passing the amendment places the responsibility for this important decision where it should be – on the ballot for Virginia’s voters during the 2022 elections.  *Update:  Unfortunately, the action did not get passed in the 2022 General Assembly so the process begins again to support placing the constitutional amendment on an upcoming general election ballot.
