The conservative-controlled US Supreme Court upheld Arizona’s laws restricting third-party ballot collection and out-of-precinct voting.
Faith leaders across Arizona have spoken out in recent months about protecting voting rights and expanding access to the ballot box as a Christian issue, not a partisan one.
Activists said they were protesting the filibuster because it was holding up immigration reform, universal healthcare, and voting rights protections.
Rally attendees said there's specific legislation they would like to see become law but feel don’t have a chance unless the filibuster is removed.
While it’s easy to tune out all the political noise, the future of this Senate procedure does directly affect you and your family.
