Urge Congress to Pass the John Lewis Voting Rights and the Freedom to Vote Acts

Overview

The most basic right in a democracy, the right to choose who will serve us in government, is under attack in dozens of states.  At the same time, historic legal protections, including those in the 1965 Voting Rights Act (VRA), have been gutted by the Supreme Court. 

The free and fair markets on which business depends are threatened by this erosion of democratic fundamentals.  At the least, confidence in our institutions is eroded, but at worst, the equal application of rules and laws for all is replaced by arbitrary and capricious decisions made to advantage a limited few. 

That is why the American Sustainable Business Council created its Business for Democracy campaign and is asking you to help advocate for voting rights.
