SECURING JUSTICE FOR ALL

Freedom to Vote

To commemorate the 56th anniversary of the signing of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and The CW Network have partnered to launch a new, non-partisan effort to ensure voting rights for all citizens. We know that encouraging people to vote is meaningless if their right and freedom to vote is undermined on a daily basis. 

Confirm Kristen Clarke

Kristen Clarke’s record as a champion of civil rights for all people in America is unassailable. She has dedicated her entire life and career to the pursuit of equal justice under the law. With her vast experience, Kristen Clarke is among the most qualified candidates ever nominated to lead civil rights enforcement for the nation.

 

Democracy Matters

Since the November 3rd election, there have been over 4 dozen lawsuits filed in the courts challenging the election outcome. We are standing up to safeguard the rights of Black voters and have intervened in 17 of these suits. We have achieved success in all. Over 150 million Americans participated in this election and their voices matter.

Election Protection

The national, nonpartisan Election Protection coalition works year-round to ensure that all voters have an equal opportunity to vote and have that vote count. Made up of more than 100 local, state and national partners, Election Protection uses a wide range of tools and activities to protect, advance and defend the right to vote. Election Protection provides Americans from coast to coast with comprehensive information and assistance at all stages of voting – from registration, to absentee and early voting, to casting a vote at the polls, to overcoming obstacles to their participation. Election Protection helps voters make sure their vote is counted through a number of resources, including: A suite of voter helplines, Voter Protection field programs across the country, and digital outreach tools. Throughout the election cycle we’re working tirelessly to protect the vote.
