National Voting Coalition Praises Administration’s Calls To Protect Voting Access

PRESS RELEASE: Students Learn Students Vote Coalition
CONTACT: Danny Fersh, danny@slsvcoalition.org

The Students Learn Students Vote (SLSV) Coalition commends the Biden-Harris Administration for addressing voting rights and voting access at the Atlanta University Center Consortium, home to Clark Atlanta University, Spelman College, and Morehouse College, a site of historic significance to the civil rights movement as well as extraordinary work to expand the student vote.

We are encouraged by the Biden-Harris Administration’s actions and support for the expansion of voting access to all eligible Americans, and to make the democratic process more equitable. We are also pleased by the Administration’s continued emphasis of this issue, beginning with their Executive Order issued on March 7, 2021, promising action to promote access to voting.

While today’s address focused on congressional action that would advance voting rights, we believe that the Administration should continue to explore any and all avenues available to them to expand access to the vote, for students and all Americans. We look forward to assisting in any efforts that will help student voters make their voices heard in our democracy.
