I’m facing two battles before me – my diagnosis and the fight for voting rights. I am convinced that they can both be fought with the same weapon: the power of community.

They may not be household names, but these folks are fighting for change necessary to make democracy work.

Saturday will be action-packed with multiple marches in D.C., and across the country, along with a Saturday evening virtual Jubilee celebration centering on the work of notable Black feminists.

Democrats were sent back to square one after Senate Republicans used a filibuster to block the For The People Act -- legislation that would have overhauled U.S. elections and greatly benefitted Black voters, in particular.

Launching on Juneteenth, the "Blackest" bus in the country and local and national partners will tour 9 southern cities to raise awareness about the current threat to voting rights and building Black power in the south.
