SOME 200 ACTIVISTS ARRESTED IN MASSIVE WHITE HOUSE DEMONSTRATION

Published on: 11/17/2021
Washington, DC — Hundreds of voting rights activists escalated demands for the White House to act on voting rights today, in an action that resulted in the arrests of some 200 participants.

With approximately 800 protestors in attendance, the demonstration is the fifth and largest in a series aimed at spurring the White House to take action to get the Senate to pass both the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. Both pieces of legislation have been blocked in procedural votes.

Those arrested include three LWV national board members and 10 League members who traveled to DC for this action. “Today we stand as a united coalition, exercising our right to peacefully protest and send a message to our President that the clock is ticking to protect voting rights. Mr. President, we are counting on you to be the voting rights leader our republic needs!
