Take Action 

The U.S. Senate has finally unveiled their legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act and it is even worse than the version we saw from the U.S. House.

This is a nasty bill that will hurt millions of Americans and it is time to stand up and urge your Senators to reject it.

The "Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017" will cut coverage and raise costs for millions of Americans while giving a huge tax break to the wealthiest individuals and large corporations. The cuts to Medicaid will be massive and will destroy the system that so many Americans rely on.

Tell your Senators this legislation is not worthy of this great nation.






Congress Reintroduces the Voting Rights Advancement Act


Congresswoman Terry Sewell (D-AL) and Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) have reintroduced the Voting Rights Advancement Act in Congress. This legislation responds directly and responsibly to the Supreme Court’s decision inShelby County v. Holder.


Automatic Voter Registration Act of 2017

Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Representative Robert Brady (D-PA) introduced the Automatic Voter Registration Act of 2017.

 The League is proud to support this legislation that enhances access for eligible voters in our elections and works to modernize our electoral system.
