Elections matter. The people we elect to represent us – from the White House to the State House to City and Town Council – hold tremendous power over our lives.
We also believe that a free, fair, and equitable political process is essential to advancing protections that are critical to our health, our environment, and future generations. To achieve this, we must ensure that all people can safely participate in our elections and actively combat voter suppression tactics that most often target people of color.
