Global News published this video item, entitled “Biden signs executive order to expand voting access on 56th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday”” – below is their description.
U.S. President Joe Biden issued an executive order on Sunday designed to make it easier for Americans to vote, the White House said, as Republicans across the country seek to limit voting rights in the wake of the 2020 election.
Biden’s order comes on the 56th anniversary of the 1965 “Bloody Sunday” when state troopers and police attacked civil rights marchers in Selma, Alabama, who were protesting racial discrimination at the voting booth.
“The legacy of the march in Selma is that while nothing can stop free people from exercising their most sacred power as a citizen, there are those who will do anything they can to take that power away,” Biden said in a release from the White House.
His executive order directs federal agencies to submit plans within 200 days that outline steps to expand voter registration and distribute election information to voters. It also directs the U.S. chief information officer to modernize federal websites and digital services that provide such details.
Biden cited the historic turnout in the 2020 election in the midst of the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
Bloody Sunday on March 7, 1965, took its name from the beating that roughly 600 peaceful civil rights activists sustained at the hands of white state troopers and police who attacked them with batons and sprayed them with tear gas.
