The next two weeks will be decisive for the passage of the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act!

This is a Moral Imperative demanding all of our support and action. UN-PAC and brave college students from throughout the nation will resume their hunger strike at the US Capitol until this voting rights legislation is passed. Transformative Justice Coalition Co-Leaders Barbara Arnwine and Daryl Jones will join them and invite you to Join Us on Thursday, January 13th for a One Day Hunger Strike. With the Midterm primaries set to start imminently, action is required. The US Senate must know that we are demanding they protect our Voting Rights and Our Democracy NOW!!
Radio Show Host Joe Madison has been on a hunger strike for 2 months. Rev. Stephen Green and Faith leaders launched a hunger strike last week. Our colleague Robert Johnson has been on a hunger strike for over 50 days. We ask everyone to do whatever you can safely do according to your own health and other needs. And, please do contact your US Senators at 202-224-3121 and urge them to support rules reform to pass Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.
If you can join this TJC Good Trouble One Day Hunger Strike, please let us know and post your action on social media and note @TJC_DC on Twitter and at Transformative Justice Coalition on Facebook. Do share this Day of Action with your friends and colleagues.

Last week, with the life sentencing of the murderers of Ahmaud Arbery, TJC, Allies, the Arbery Family and many of you proved to the naysayers that the organized and concerted power of the people demanding justice can not be denied. Our thanks for everyone for your activism in helping to ensure our voting rights and Democracy are protected!
