Dear White Women


Mar 31, 2021

2020 was a record-setting year for voting.  As Politico noted, the United States saw the largest raw turnout ever, with 81 million voters backing Biden over Trump, whose 74 million votes are the second-most in U.S. history.  

But as many news sources noted recently, states nationwide are about to make it harder to vote. 

Acting partly in response to widespread false allegations of fraud in the 2020 presidential election (aka the Big Lie, namely that Trump won the election and there’s widespread voter fraud), state legislatures have introduced about 250 bills this year that would limit access to voting.  

We should all be concerned about this. Here’s why.

What to listen for:

  • The specific attacks on voter rights that are happening in states across the country
  • Why some of this is reminiscent of Jim Crow laws
  • A legal dive into what’s happening, what’s at stake, and what cases are coming up that we need to pay attention to.
  • How as voters we can make a difference: who we support, who we talk to, and how hard we fight to keep certain bills from passing.
