Good Trouble: Candlelight Vigil for Democracy

July 17 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm CDT

Indivisible TX24 and Southlake Anti-Racism Coalition: America is at a crossroads. Indivisible TX-24 and SARC, Southlake Anti-Racism Coalition join to host this peaceful vigil for a voting rights and honor American Civil Rights icon John Lewis.

Six months have passed since the failed attack on our nation and our democracy on January 6th. Since that day, anti-voter laws have been passed in states all over the country and the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent rulings have made clear that it will not act to protect the sacred right to vote. This summer, Congressional districts risk being redrawn in a way that will allow politicians to choose their voters – rather than the voters fairly choosing who represents them.

We have reached an inflection point in which we must force our elected officials to act now or risk losing the very foundation of our republic. The Democrats in the Texas lege broke quorum to lobby Senators in DC about the need for federal legislation. #DontMessWithTexasVoters

But there is hope for us to stop this undercurrent of corruption and rebuild American democracy so that the freedom to vote is protected, billionaires don’t control our political systems, and our representatives actually respond to we the people.

To do this, we must pass the For the People Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, and D.C. Statehood – and we can’t let anything, including the Jim Crow filibuster, stand in our way!

Join us for The Good Trouble Vigils for Democracy on July 17 – the one year mark of the passing of Rep.John Lewis – as we carry on his legacy by hosting candlelight vigils nationwide to demand that Congress act to protect our freedom to vote and rebuild our democracy. Make a plan to attend.

We must and will win this Fight!
