Action Alert

The Supreme Court did a good job of messing up the 1965 Voting Rights Act that has provided protection to minority voters for 50 years.  Please help us correct the damage done by urging your two senators (Flake and McCain) and your congressional district’s representative to co-sponsor H.R. 885, the Voting Rights Amendment Act.  Two Arizona representatives have co-signed – Kyrstin Sinema and Ann Kirkpatrick.  So if they are you’re representatives, thank them. If your representative is someone else, please call them right now and ask them to co-sponsor the bi-partisan H.R. 885.

 

Also the Smarter Sentencing Act has been introduced in the U.S. House and Senate to address racial and ethnic disparities in federal criminal mandatory minimum sentencing.  S. 502 and H.R. 920 would expand the existing federal “safety valve” to re-sentence victims of mandatory minimum, promote consistent sentencing and allow judges to determine if the harshest penalties should apply.  Again tell both senators and your congressional representative to co-sponsor that bill.
