Voting is a permanent guarantee that is the very lifeblood of our nation. As the Representative of Ohio’s Third Congressional District and the Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, Representative Joyce Beatty is committed to doing everything in her power toward making it easier, not more difficult, for people to vote.
Your voice is your vote, and your vote is your power. Our democracy must serve all Americans, and generations of civil rights activists like Congressman John Lewis fought to make sure every citizen has the opportunity to make their voice heard. Republicans in Congress and in state governments have shown that they will take any and every opportunity to put politics, power, and profit over the American people, particularly when it comes to diminishing and often silencing the voices of minority communities.
