On Tuesday, June 9th, the Declaration for American Democracy and the Leadership Conference of Civil and Human Rights are holding a “Vote For Our Lives” virtual rally event featuring Speaker Nancy Pelosi, voting rights leader Reverend Barber and labor and civil rights legend Dolores Huerta to talk about the need for swift action from Congress to secure our right to safely vote in our elections and the solutions that will allow us to do just that.
