Yesterday, March On and Future Coalition participated in a youth-led #NoMoreExcuses Civil Disobedience Action at the White House to demand passage of the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, which is likely to come to a vote today in the Senate, and the Freedom to Vote Act. March On is a political organization composed of women-led political activist groups that grew out of the women’s marches of January 21, 2017. They have come together as a united force to take concrete, coordinated actions at the federal, state and local levels to impact elections and move the country in a progressive direction.
