SAVE OUR DEMOCRACY!!!!

Amidst a fierce fascist putsch against voting rights, we prepare for the birth of a major national grassroots campaign to Save our Democracy.

We hear from CHARLES MOORELAND on new Congressional hearings for DC statehood, and the brutal, pivotal fight over the Senate filibuster.

Reports also come from GLORIA TINUBU, JAMES FAKUDA, RAY MCCLENDON & JOEL SEGAL on the birth of the new national campaign to save our democracy.

The campaign is based on grassroots activism at all levels of the democratic spectrum, and includes voter information centers and much more.

This undertaking will be among the most significant in US history, rooted in community organizing and multi-racial coalitions from around the US.

It’s success will define the American future….don’t miss joining in!

DC STATEHOOD & THE S-1 / HR-4 SHOWDOWN

 
The national uproar over voting rights and American democracy has escalated to a fever pitch. Throughout the nation, right wing Trump Cultists are working state by state to prevent citizens of youth and color from voting.  
 
Federally, the Omnibus Voting Rights bill HR-1 is now S-1, having passed the House.  We’re joined by PROFESSOR GLORIA TINUBA for a broad overview of what’s happening with these two critical bills and how income inequities in America are at the root of so many of our problems.
 
We’re also joined by CHARLES MOORLAND & EUGENE KINLOW of the DC Statehood movement.  As key activists at the core of the struggle, they explain how “No Taxation Without Representation” is the critical key to getting full rights for some 800,000 American citizens who are essentially being held in colonial status.
 
With JOEL SEGAL, LULU FRIESDAT, EMILY LEVY, HOWIE HAWKINS, DR. LORA CHAMBERLAIN and other great activists, we cover the ground in this critical times.  Join Us!
 
And please note that this discussion went on for a long time beyond our allotted hour.  If you’ve tuned in and want to stay with us after 5pm eastern, go to www.electionprotection.org to get the link for the rest of the recorded session.

VOTING RIGHTS UNDER FIRE….& FIGHTBACK WITH HR-1& HR-4….PLUS DC STATEHOOD

The Trump GOP cult has lost the American electorate.  Citizens of youth and color have hugely rejected the party. 

Millennials in 2020 voted more than 60% against Trump; Zoomers even higher. 

So Republicans nationwide are reverting to Jim Crow by severely restricting voting rights and accessibility.

On our Grassroots Election Protection call #42, RAY MCCLENDON of the Atlanta NAACP and co-convenor JOEL SEGAL explain the nightmare now being perpetrated in Georgia.

JOHN BRAKEY talks about the insanity in Arizona.

LULU FRIESDAT, EMILY LEVY, DR. LORA CHAMBERLAIN and others chime in.

This is clearly the most comprehensive attack on voting rights since just after the Civil War, and could easily allow the Trump Cult to take fascist power in 2022 and 2024.

We also talk about DC STATEHOOD and whether the District might maybe just secede and form its own state!!
