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. 

Higginbotham Leadership Awards

Democracy promises the free and full participation in civic life for all. Join us for a night to celebrate the fight for racial justice, voting rights and economic equality. The A. Leon Higginbotham Corporate Leadership Award is named in honor of Judge A. Leon Higginbotham, Jr., a pioneering civil rights advocate, author and federal appeals court judge.

Democracy Matters

Now, more than ever, democracy matters. As the Lawyers’ Committee continues to address the challenges that face our nation, we hope that you will continue to partner with us in the struggle for racial justice and to continuing making the promises of democracy real.

Throughout the election cycle we’re working tirelessly to protect the vote.
