End of Friday Relay Shindig at Ben’s Chili Bowl

October 22, 2021 @ 5:30 pm 6:30 pm

Join the Freedom to Vote Relay as it arrives at this D.C. landmark.

Whatever our color, background, or zip code, in America we value our freedom. The freedom to have a say in decisions that impact our lives-from curbing the pandemic to creating jobs to making health care affordable.

For months, the American people have been calling for national standards to protect our freedom to vote, ensure fair representation, and get big money out of politics.

The Freedom to Vote Act – that – along with the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and D.C. Statehood – will stop threats to the freedom to vote and make sure that our democracy is open and accessible to everyone.

That’s why we’re mobilizing in a new and powerful way, joining together to walk and bike from West Virginia to our nation’s capital on the week of October 16th, and to rally in D.C. when we arrive on Saturday, October 23rd.

Join us on October 22nd at Ben’s Chili Bowl on U Street to welcome the relay into D.C. in support of full representation for all!
