Remembering an American Hero Representative Elijah E. Cummings, who fought for EVERYONE’s civil rights. We #FightToVote in honor of this great leader. #RIPElijah #RIPSir

idea that my 93 old mother had seen
people slain and beaten because they
were trying to exercise their right to
vote and now here in 2019 we’re fighting

later same thing only dresses up a
little differently but the same thing if
people are not are not allowed to vote
or when they block from voting then it
makes impossible and it makes it
impossible for them to change their
destiny and if you skew the numbers and
you take away the right to vote and you

you’re getting rid of early voting I

people from affecting their destiny
