Even before Trump’s team swung into action to thwart the Recount 2016 effort, it was clear that we’d have to fight for elections we can trust - that are accurate, secure and just. Doing so requires a voting system that is verifiable and accountable to the people.
Recount activists have been hard at work making sure that the lessons of the recount lead to lasting reforms. Here’s a quick update on what we’re doing and how you can get involved:
Voting Justice conference in Philly a rousing success
This past weekend in Philadelphia, Jill joined champions for voting justice from around the country for an inspiring conference on how we can democratize elections, protect voting rights and fight for election integrity. From the lively sessions led by national leaders of this growing movement, it was clear that Recount 2016 has both exposed the crisis of our broken voting system, and energized the movement to fix it.
Missed us in Philly? You still have the opportunity to join the second Voting Justice and Democratizing Elections conference in Milwaukee March 17-19. Whether you can come for one day or three, you won’t want to miss this gathering of leading experts on issues including election integrity, “new Jim Crow” voter suppression, improved voting systems and much more.
Thanks for all that you do to stand for an America and a world that works for all of us!
It’s in our hands,
The Recount 2016 team
