Voting rights legislation: Democrats Club meeting, this Saturday August 21, 2021

Mary Ann Edson-Plumb, Club President is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.....

The Pacifica - Daly City Democrats Club will hold its monthly meeting this Saturday, August 21, beginning at 9:30 a.m., via Zoom.

Supreme Court Put a Dagger in the Heart of the Voting Rights Act | American  Civil Liberties Union
Current issues and legislation to improve,
reform and protect our rights to vote.

Our guest speaker, Brent Turner, is Co-Chair of the Voter Integrity Committee of the San Mateo County Democrats. His presentation will include discussion of the For the People Act (H.R.1 & S.1) and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act—what issues they address, current status, why passage is imperative, and whether passage in the Senate will require elimination or reform of the filibuster rule.
To set the stage, our First VP Connie Menefee will begin with a brief overview of how the U.S. Supreme Court has methodically stripped away the protections of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The Supreme Court’s hostility towards voting rights (as demonstrated in the pivotal Shelby County, Alabama case decided in 2013) set the stage for a deluge of voter suppression laws and underscores the need for a national solution.
Join the Zoom meeting Saturday morning by signing in between 9:15 and 9:30, using the instructions in the following invitation.
