A GRASSROOTS MOVEMENT TO WIN THE VOTING RIGHTS ACTS & STOP FASCISM
 
We’re joined at session #73 of the Grassroots Emergency Election Protection zooms by ANDREA MILLER of the Center for Common Ground and RAY MCCLENDON of the Atlanta NAACP.
 
We face a crisis in the rise of fascism that can only be defeated with the restoration of voting rights and the defeat of Gerrymandering, facilitated by two major bills now before Congress.
 
Long-term victory demands establishing DEMOCRACY CENTERS and meaningful, sustainable pro-democracy campaigns wherever possible.
 
That means moving the millions of donor dollars that are wasted on TV ads into on-the-ground organizing that can restore our democracy.
 
Thus the slogan NO MORE TERRY MCAULIFFEs as a reminder that boring, mid-road campaigners clog the arteries needed to deliver real public input.  
 
As JOEL SEGAL makes clear, these voting rights bills MUST be made law either by passing Congress, which will require defeating the filibuster, or by Executive Order.
 
JAN BEN DOR joins us from Michigan to describe the grassroots efforts there to win back voting rights through a Constitutional Amendment proposed via referendum.
 
And HEDY TRIPP sets the stage for January 29th’s special session with KEITH ELLISON, Attorney-General of Minnesota and a power in the Democratic National Committee.
 
With our Republic and way of life under intense fascistic attack, these sessions are absolutely essential.  JOIN US!!!
