Yeah...democracy. It’s important. It’s vitally important for everyone’s freedoms.
Memorial Day weekend 2021 - while everyone was honoring fallen service members, riding bikes, and BBQing with family, the Texas Legislature tried to impose the strictest voting laws in the nation. I watched a live stream from the Texas State Capital Sunday night because I'm a civics nerd and I care about the unmet ideals and promise of this country. The crazy train SB7 voting restriction bill was stopped one and a half hours before the legislative session ended when the minority party legislators walked out in protest...denying the majority party legislators a voting quorum.
As of June 1, 2021, legislatures in Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin have passed new anti-democracy voting laws this year. Across the country, 47 state legislatures are considering restrictive, unAmerican voting restrictions in the name of "secure elections." Make no mistake about it: This is Jim Crow 2.0.
While TX SB7 is "Toast," a special session looms later this year for a second attempt to ram it through.
And Texas still has some of the strictest, voter suppression laws in the country.
We can't stand by as our democracy is attacked and not act.
First, we ask that you call your U.S. Senator at (202) 224-3121 and ask them to pass the For the People Act (H.R. 1) and The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act (S.4263) in June 2021.
H.R. 1 sets national standards for modern elections and S.4263 restores the 1968 Voting Rights Act.
Second, buy our Texas Toast Single Origin Coffee. Coffee sales profits support:
1 - Democracy Docket - a legal organization that's leading legal fights against restrictive voting laws across the United States, and
2 - Jolt Action - a progressive Texas Latino focused on building the influence of young Latinos through community organizing and voter registration.
Everyone - check out Fair Fight, Stacey Abrams' organization that's fighting to protect voting rights and fair elections. Also, check out Stop Jim Crow 2.
Texans - if you want to GRASSROOTS ORGANIZE, we encourage you to check out PoweredByPeople events starting immediately in June across the state.
This is not a drill. Our democracy is under threat.
We believe in democracy. We hope you do too.
