A Statement on the John Lewis Voting Rights Act

CIDNY applauds the United States House of Representatives on passing the John Lewis Voting Rights Act. For far too long, people with disabilities, along with other groups, have been discriminated against and faced barriers to voting. Every eligible voter should have the ability to easily cast their votes and have the confidence that their vote will be counted. It is a right and one that has trampled for far too long. CIDNY urges the Senate to pass this key initiative and ensure protections for all voters.
