LET OUR VOICES BE HEARD

LET OUR VOICES BE HEARD

Chapter New York
Description This piece showcases an important moment in history, in which the right to vote was extended to all people equality; a precedent of the importance to actively engage in our civic rights and responsibilities_of making our voices be heard_ as a testament to the power of exercising our rights in order to make a difference. In this heartfelt text, representative Barbara Jordan, an African American, speaking in the House Judiciary Committee on July 25, 1974, expresses her sentiment in regards to the Fifteen Amendment of the United States Constitution, which prohibits the federal and state governments from denying a citizen the right to vote based on that citizen's " race, color, or previous condition of servitude."
