Congress should act to counter white supremacists

After the violence in Charlottesville, many members of Congress took to Twitter or released statements condemning white supremacy. Today, I signed a petition from the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, urging members of Congress to:

  • Hold oversight hearings with the Department of Justice and other agencies that enforce criminal and civil rights laws to find out what they’re doing to counter white supremacist groups.
  • Oppose any judicial and executive nominees who have given platform to, supported, or condoned white supremacist activities, organizations, or ideology.
  • Hold hearings on and pass legislation to restore the full protections of the Voting Rights Act, and other bills that would protect the right to vote.
  • Refuse to allocate any funding to the Presidential Commission on Election Integrity.
