Press Release

MoveOn Executive Director Rahna Epting Responds to the Supreme Court’s Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee Decision

WASHINGTON -

“The Voting Rights Act—already a shell of its former self—was dealt another crippling blow by today’s Supreme Court ruling. At a time when Republicans are engaged in a devastating disenfranchisement campaign against Black and brown communities, we need our highest court to defend our rights, not destroy them. Unfortunately, decades of Republican court packing led by Senator McConnell has left our judicial system toothless against real threats like this one.

“We will not stand for this sustained attack on voting rights and our democracy. Millions of MoveOn members will continue to mobilize to push for both For The People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act to protect everyone’s right to cast their ballot safely and securely and ensure our government represents to the will of the people. The stakes are too high for the filibuster or a quest for bipartisanship to get in the way.  Unless both laws are implemented to counteract this systematic dismantling of our voting process, Republicans will continue their relentless assault on our democracy and rig the rules in their favor, and the voices of millions will be swept away.”

MoveOn is where millions mobilize for a better society—one where everyone can thrive. Whether it’s supporting a candidate, passing legislation, or changing our culture, MoveOn members are committed to an inclusive and progressive future. We envision a world marked by equality, sustainability, justice, and love. And we mobilize together to achieve it.
