VOTE READY CAMPAIGN–Voter Education, Voter Engagement and Voter Mobilization Events
The National Commission for Voter Justice (NCVJ)
The National Commission for Voter Justice (NCVJ) inspired by Reverend Jesse L. Jackson, Sr., founder and president of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, and Barbara Arnwine, founder and president of the Transformative Justice Coalition, with founding partner, the National Bar Association, will highlight, document, and address the scourge of voter suppression across the country, while advancing electoral reform and civic engagement to promote an inclusive and robust U.S. democracy. This non-partisan and diverse commission composed of prominent civil rights leaders, voting rights experts, scholars, elected officials, lawyers, students, and community activists will undertake a schedule of work centered around independent research, hearings and listening sessions in the states to hear directly from U.S. citizens; publications of findings, recommendations and strategies; and direct organizing and collaboration with community-based organizations to enhance voter engagement. The National Commission for Voter Justice will compile, review and distill existing reports published by the federal government, states, major research institutions, civil rights, voting rights and civic engagement organizations as well as prior private and public commissions. Collaboration with non-partisan institutions and other voting rights commissions will be actively pursued.
