Activists at the Moechella Juneteenth Celebration in Washington, DC called out the U.S. Chamber of Commerce at its headquarters near Black Lives Matter Plaza, for blocking Black votes and to demand that its members break from the Chamber unless it changes its opposition to the For The People Act (S. 1).
If passed, S. 1 would strengthen our democracy by ensuring that we all have the freedom to vote safely. The For the People Act would preempt many of the anti-voter measures passed across the country that disproportionately affect voters of color, including Black, Latinx, and Indigenous communities. The U.S. Chamber is lobbying Congress to block the bill, which is why activists are demanding that the Chamber “Stop Blocking Black Votes.”
