Willie Nelson will be joining Reverend Dr. William Barber, Beto O’Rourke, , and thousands of Texans at a rally for democracy and voting rights in Austin this Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Texas State Capitol
The For the People Act can pass the U.S. Senate and become law this year if we bring our fellow Texans into this fight to help push the President and Democratic Senators to use their power to secure free and fair elections.
This voting rights bill — which would ensure equal access to early voting and mail-in voting, provide for automatic voter registration, make election day a national holiday, and eliminate gerrymandering and dark money — will bring tens of millions more Americans into our elections and roll back voter suppression efforts in Texas and the rest of the country.
But the only way it passes is if we push those in power to get it done. That's how John Lewis did it 56 years ago, when he led a march from Selma to Montgomery. The courage of those marchers helped compel President Lyndon Johnson to pass the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
This rally will culminate a Selma-like march from Georgetown to Austin. The march will culminate in a voting rights rally in front of the state Capitol.
