Since January, 48 states have introduced at least 389 bills that amount to shameful, outright voter suppression -- and many have already become law.

These racist anti-voter bills limit ballot drop boxes and mail-in voting, reduce early voting days and hours, criminalize the distribution of water to voters waiting in long lines, and more.

That’s why, on August 28, we’re marching on Washington, Atlanta, Miami, Houston, Phoenix, and dozens of other cities across the country to speak out for voting rights.


March on For Voting Rights will continue the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, who on August 28, 1963 delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech -- calling on the nation to rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed. At the time, Black people in America were living under the tyranny of Jim Crow laws that legalized racial discrimination.

Today, state legislatures are pushing America back toward the Jim Crow era with laws that reinstate systemic discrimination at the ballot box. That is why, on August 28, 2021 -- 58 years to the day after his father’s march -- Martin Luther King III will help to lead us on another march to demand federal voting rights protections.

We’ll urge the Senate to do whatever it takes to pass key pro-voter bills like the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act -- which have, as of yesterday, both been passed by the House.

March on For Voting Rights will be hosting in-person and virtual events around the country. I hope that you can join us for this historic moment!

Thanks for all you do,
