Victory: Trump dissolves sham voter fraud commission
Activism works. Thanks to hundreds of thousands of CREDO members who took action to resist blatant voter suppression by the Trump regime, Trump and his cronies dissolved their sham voter “fraud” commission earlier this month.
Trump established the commission last year to investigate Trump’s bold-faced lie that the 2016 election suffered from widespread “voter fraud” by millions of illegal voters. It was another vehicle for them to relentlessly perpetuate the myth of voter fraud to cast doubt on the electoral process, reinforce racism, undermine the voting power of communities of color and justify laws that suppress the vote.
A huge “Thank You” to all of our dedicated CREDO members who took action to defend our privacy and our right to vote. We know Trump and right-wing Republicans will keep waging war on voting rights, and we look forward to your activism to resist this regime’s dangerous actions in the future.
Want to take action to defend voting rights now? Sign our petition urging Congress to pass the Voting Rights Advancement Act, which would restore the Voting Rights Act and block new efforts to suppress African-American and Latinx votes.
