The modern struggle for voting rights has only intensified in 2018. Help us fight back! RSVP Below
Voting is a fundamental right. But throughout U.S. history state legislatures and other institutions have raised barriers that make it difficult for minority communities to exercise these core civil rights. Regardless of the motive offered for the restriction, the result is the same--rights of eligible voters are infringed, communities are politically marginalized, and the will of the electorate is suppressed. Modernizing voter access and improving civic engagement will strengthen our democracy, making it more representative and responsive to the needs of our communities.
NYDLC (@NYDLC) works with candidates, elected officials, community leaders, and civic and grassroots groups to provide voter protection training, election monitoring, rights-based civics education, and to help raise awareness about voting rights and the importance of political organizing and participation in order to empower our communities.

NYDLC continues to advocate for a comprehensive pro-voter modernization overhaul of both our voter registration system and our voting process (Click here to see NYDLC's current legislative agenda).
But these are big priorities, and we can't achieve them without your relentless dedication, active participation, and continued support.
