There is no doubt that Virginia has a long and troubled history with voting rights. Virginia is the fifth worst state in the nation at disenfranchising its citizens and, worse, the unfair, disproportionate impact on the African-American community is increasing. It is time we made clear that the vote is essential to a healthy democracy, and it belongs to the people. It is not a privilege to be used by the government to reward or punish its people. Take action in your local community!
 
It is our hope that this toolkit will empower you to reach out to your family, friends, colleagues, acquaintances and even strangers to raise awareness and activism around these issues. With your help, we can expand access to the ballot for all Virginians!
