Democrats Are Fighting Like Hell for Voting Rights

Republicans didn’t like the way the last election went, so they are trying to make it harder for folks to vote. The stakes couldn’t be higher

 


Voting is a family tradition for me. It’s something I used to do with my grandfather. Now, it’s something I do with my two boys.

Every time I’m in the voting booth with my sons, I feel my grandfather’s legacy. He faced the burden of Jim Crow voter suppression firsthand. He shared those raw, painful memories with me when he was alive.

I know in my bones that I never want my sons to face those burdens. I wish that they were just stories for them—powerful lessons from a history that will never repeat.

But history is repeating itself all across the country.
