The value of inclusiveness is necessary for democracy. In contrast, voter suppression aims to exclude. Tactics to suppress the vote are voter ID laws; purging lists of qualified voters; eliminating early voting, out-of-precinct voting, and same-day registration; reducing polling places, packing majority-minority districts; using at-large elections; dividing minority districts, and prohibiting registration drives by organizations, to name a few. So when the Journey for Justice gathered on the Senate Lawn for their Legislative Advocacy Day, achieving greater inclusion in the electoral process was a definite goal - but not the only one. They also rallied for greater inclusion in terms of access to a good education and decent jobs. And they hoped to extend “equal protection under the law” to everyone. Their chorus was, “Our Lives, Our Votes, Our Jobs, Our Schools Matter.” After the rally, they departed to lobby Congress armed, not only with the Voting Rights Advancement Act 2015, but the End to Racial Profiling Act, the Raise the Wage Act, and the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as well.
