VRAforToday.org is a project of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the nation’s premier civil and human rights coalition working to build an America that’s as good as its ideals. This site is dedicated to building bipartisan support in Congress for legislation that will restore and strengthen the Voting Rights Act, the most successful and important piece of civil rights legislation we have seen in the 20th century.

While we have made great strides as a country in extending the franchise to all, the weight of the evidence is clear: racial discrimination in voting remains a troubling and persistent practice in too many places. We need modern, commonsense legislation to strengthen the VRA and make sure every American is treated fairly at the ballot box.
