Similar demonstrations occurred at bridges across America to highlight the critical importance of passing the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the For the People Act of 2021. These acts would strengthen voting access for all eligible voters across America no matter what their racial, ethnic, social or economic status. According to an analysis by the Brennan Center for Justice, in 2021 at least 19 states, including Florida, enacted 34 laws restricting access to voting. PHOTO COURTESY SUSAN VAUGHEN
