Welcome to the Voting Rights and Democracy Group
The PNR Voting Rights group is concerned about all issues related to preserving and uplifting our US democracy.
Voting is the most direct way of making our voices heard and influencing change in the policies that affect our lives. When we vote we vote not only for ourselves but for those who cannot vote for themselves: returning citizens, the disenfranchised, undocumented immigrants, for children and the environment. Voting is about protecting our human rights and the ability to live with dignity. We vote for ourselves today, for our children tomorrow and to protect the generations to come.
The PNR Voting Rights group is interested in undertaking research, outreach and activism to advocate and promote awareness amongst our DAUK community in the following areas:
Voter suppression Voter re-e franchisement Gerrymandering Voter engagement and participation
Electoral reform Safeguarding our election systems Campaign finance reform Getting money out of politics
