We Remember… We Act...
Updated On: Jan 17, 2022

January 17,2022

On August 6, 1965 President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act into law, calling the day “a triumph for freedom as huge as any victory that has ever been won on any battlefield” The law came seven months after Martin Luther King launched a Southern Christian Leadership Conference campaign with the aim of pressuring Congress to pass such legislation. 

As we remember the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. we find ourselves at a point in history where we all are being called to act to protect the rights he lost his life fighting to achieve.  Dr. King fought against discrimination and for worker’s rights and the right to vote. 

The Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act are the desperately needed federal responses to the attacks on voting rights happening all across our country. These pieces of legislation would protect the right of every IBEW member so that we can cast our vote and have our votes counted.

There is nothing more fundamental in a democracy than a right to vote. At this moment, that right – and our democracy itself – is under attack. As IBEW members we must do our part to help pass these bills that protect the fundamental rights of all Americans. Honor Dr. King’s legacy by taking action today, by clicking here.
