Hi, Cheney, Swerner & Goodman who died because they were registering voters. This is one of the most important pieces of civil rights Congress has ever passed and the Supreme Court has weakened provisions of it. That's why I created a petition to Rep. Michael Grimm (NY-11), which says: "Please cosponsor and improve the Voting Rights Amendment of 2014." Will you sign this petition? Click here: http://petitions.moveon.org/....

I'll never forget how I felt when Cheney, Swerner and Goodman were murdered just for registering voters.  I have been registering voters for years here in NYC but there are many states (I'm in NYC) that have put undue restrictions on voters and potential voters.  Please sign my petition to my Congressman - Michael Grimm NY CD-11 asking him to be a cosponsor and improve the Voting Rights Amendment of 2014.  I know this Amendment isn't perfect but it's a start and we need to start NOW.  Thank you.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
