Event Details

NULYP Member, Friend, Supporter,


We need your support to do the following:

  1. Connect!
    Provide us with the contact information for your political activism/community engagement chairs. Please register here. Any updates, articles, etc. we receive will be pushed out to the members of that group (including the list of communities affected by this decision).
  2. Research.
    Keep your ear to the ground. Speak to local and state representatives about efforts to restrict voting in your area so we can share the information.
  3. NEW!
    Now we are asking you to join the National Urban League in our response in 3 key ways!

    1. Contact your Representatives.

      “We are outraged by the Supreme Court’s decision to reverse the progress of the last 50 years by finding Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act unconstitutional.  We demand that Congress work quickly, decisively and in a bipartisan manner to answer the Court’s questions, restore the power of Section 5 to protect voters from discrimination.”
    2. Share your story

      Do you have an experience with voter discrimination or attempted disenfranchisement?  We need to hear your story! Visit and upload your story or video.  We will post these on our website and share them with Congress and the Department of Justice as they build a record for the new legislation.
  4. Come to Washington, DC for the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Justice on August 25!

    We need to show those who govern us that we take this decision very seriously and do not intend to stand silently by while progress is reversed.  See for more details.

 Please observe the following key dates:

July 1st 5th     
Congress in recess.   Visit your district office and demand action to protect the vote.

July 8th         
Congress returns from recess.

July 24th-27th
National Urban League Conference in Philadelphia

August 6th     
Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act

August 24th   
March in Washington, DC to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Great March on Washington


There is too much at stake for us to remain silent. #TEAMNULYP #NULYPSCOTUSMob
