The House of Representatives has just passed the Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act. The legislation now goes to the Senate.
Michael Waldman, president of the Brennan Center, had this reaction:
“The House’s bold action is exactly what this moment requires. Now the Senate must act. In the long fight for voting rights, this is a critical moment. Every senator must choose, and every senator must vote. The health of our democracy is at stake."
