NEA shall use its public-facing websites, including educationvotes.nea.org, to publicly promote and affirm its commitment to access voting and that state legislatures should not implement policies that overturn the will of the voters.

Additionally, NEA will partner with external organization in a public-facing national campaign to educate the public about voting that includes state-based lobbying language to condemn all efforts to limit the rights of voters to have full access to the ballot box.

Rationale/Background

Voting rights and democracy are under serious attack and the center of the attack has become Georgia where right wing politicians are doing everything they can to keep Georgians, especially black and brown ones, from exercising their right to vote.
