Your DGB for today is to register your support for H.R. 2978, the Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2017. https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/2978

Because voter suppression is somehow still a thing in freaking 2017, we need even more laws to prevent the silencing of minority voices at the polls. This is why the United States just can’t have nice things. Rep. Terri Sewell (D-AL-7), who also introduced this resolution, discusses voter suppression here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trumps-election-commission-is-already-laying-the-groundwork_us_59bc010ce4b02c642e4a15f6

You can contact your reps using Resistbot or Countable and tell them to support free and open voting rights, or by signing the ACLU petition here: https://action.aclu.org/secure/congress-repair-voting-act?ms=web_160620_votingrights_vraa
