Voting Rights Act of 1965 - Are you doing your part?
Fighting for Equitable & Inclusive Elections
This federal civil rights legislation was meant to stop state and local government from preventing African Americans to exercise their right to vote as guaranteed under the 15th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Black people were not allowed to vote prior to 1965. This was 10 years before I was born. Today, 55 years later, Georgia's voting systems and election management are still oppressive to black people, other minorities, rural people, and the poor.
