Freedom To Vote – Rally and Relay to DC

October is #FreedomToVoteAct month, and West Virginia is taking action with states across the nation as we host a series of events in-state, that lead up to a big DC Rally on the 23rd.

Freedom to Vote Rally: Bring It Home, Joe! – 10/16 in Fairmont, WV

On October 16th at 11:00 am, WV-CAG will join a coalition of advocate groups including UN-PAC, Represent US, United Mine Workers of America, WV AFL-CIO, and the WV Working Families Party to rally in Sen. Manchin’s hometown of Fairmont at East Marion Park.

Join these advocates and other concerned citizens to say loud and clear: Bring it home, Joe!  West Virginia needs you to get this done. Joe Manchin himself has said “inaction is not an option.” We can’t let process stand in the way. There is majority support in the Senate for the Freedom to Vote Act and they need to do whatever it takes to pass it. Visit to RSVP. For more information, email
