NYC Rally to Protect Voting Rights

Dec 10 2011 11:00 am
America/New York

Imagine if everyone in Manhattan, Queens and the BRonx suddenly lost their right to vote.

That's about the number of people -- 5 million and counting -- affected by passed and pending changes to state voting laws around the country. When all is said and done, millions more could be disenfranchised.

We're fighting back. Join us at a march and rally on Saturday, Dec. 10 -- United Nations Human Rights Day -- to stand up for the right to vote.

We will assemble beginning at 10 a.m. near the offices of the Koch brothers -- major supporters of anti-voting measures -- at 61st St. and Madison Ave. in Manhattan. The march begins at 11 a.m. We will march to Dag Hammarskjold Plaza at 47th Street and 2nd Avenue for a noon rally.
