The voting rights of people of color are under assault in many states, especially after the Supreme Court gutted the 1965 Voting Rights Act in 2013. Each election, millions of Americans are prevented from voting due to practices such as restrictions in voter registration, voter ID laws, voter roll purges, and elimination of polling places. Combating voter suppression is essential to our democracy.
We have a responsibility to ensure that every voice is heard and every vote is counted in the upcoming elections. Join Temple Israel’s Racial Justice Initiative in reaching out through postcards and telephone calls to voters, particularly voters of color, in 7 targets states for the nonpartisan Reclaim Our Vote Campaign organized by the Center for Common Ground. We’re grateful to partner with the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism and the Jewish Alliance for Law and Social Action.
