Fight Back Against Jim Crow 2.0

Our freedom to vote is at stake! Here’s how we got here:

In 2020, Americans turned out in record numbers in the middle of a pandemic to make sure our votes were counted and the will of the people prevailed to elect leaders who truly represent us.

In 2021, certain political leaders responded by perpetuating the Big Lie, inciting an unprecedented attack on our country on Jan. 6, and introducing and passing a record-breaking number of bills to restrict our freedom to vote and undermine our elections.

Now, in 2022, the same faction behind Jan. 6 are still using their deliberate disinformation campaign to attack our freedom to vote and sabotage free and fair elections. 

Extremists in states across the country are doubling down to…

Extremist politicians in your state are doubling down in 2022 to…

Lay the groundwork to reject legitimate election outcomes

Restrict ballot access

Criminalize election officials for doing their jobs

Deter voter participation through criminalization and intimidation

As states continue trying to restrict voting access in 2022, voters are already being harmed by new anti-voter restrictions enacted in 2021.

  • In Texas, SB 1’s new ID requirements to vote by mail had far-reaching consequences for its March 1, 2022 primary. More than 12% of voters–nearly 24,000 people–had their ballots rejected due to a new ID requirement that confused voters and election workers and depressed turnout. This was a significant increase over previous elections.
  • Last year, Arizona enacted a bill to end the popular Permanent Early Voting List which enabled 80% of Arizonans to vote an early ballot without an excuse in 2020. This year, conspiracy theorists are doubling down to further restrict vote by mail by attacking drop boxes, imposing unnecessary ID requirements, and significantly restricting who is eligible to vote by mail, and they even filed a lawsuit to eliminate absentee voting altogether.
  • And after Iowa’s SF 413 shortened the ballot request window, early vote period, and polling hours, among other restrictions, many voters didn’t cast their ballots.

This is Jim Crow 2.0

The promise of free and fair elections is something Americans across race, background, income, and zip code value as a right fundamental to our democracy. Despite our differences, we know how important it is for every eligible American to have a say in decisions that impact us and our families, like…

✅ Managing the pandemic

✅ Ensuring students can safely learn

✅ Creating good jobs 

✅ Mitigating climate disaster

✅ Making health care accessible and affordable for all



That’s why we’re fighting back. Voting rights can’t wait. 

YOU have the power to take action in your community, your state, and across the nation to:

✅ Ensure we can safely and freely cast our ballots

✅ Prevent partisan actors from sabotaging our election results

✅ Ensure trusted election officials count every vote

✅ Ensure the will of the people prevails
