As of August 2021, 49 states have introduced more than 400 restrictive voting laws marking a dark return to the Jim Crow era. It was critical that there be a national moment to shine the light of truth on what is happening in state legislatures, ensure that Americans understand what’s at stake, and give people a mechanism to demand action on this most urgent issue of our generation.
On August 28, 2021, tens of thousands of people in nearly 100 cities and towns across America came together to march, protest, and rally for the passage of federal voting rights legislation. March On for Voting Rights was a powerful echo of history, falling 58 years to the day after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech during the March On Washington.
