VIDEO: The Sierra Club Stands with the Fight to Protect the Voting Rights Act

The Sierra Club supports protecting Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act from Kristen E on Vimeo.

Currently, the constitutionality of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 is being challenged before the United States Supreme Court. The Voting Rights Act is critically important legislation that ensures  no federal, state, or local government may impede people from registering to vote or voting because of their race or ethnicity.  

On February 27, voices from around the country spoke out in support of keeping this vital piece of civil rights legislation intact in front of the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. The Sierra Club stands with these efforts, the NAACP, and other organizations working to protect the Voting Rights Act and to ensure that all Americans have the opportunity to have their voices heard on the issues that matter to them -- whether it is keeping our air and water clean or securing a better future for our children.
