Join us on Saturday, December 10th in New York City, as we march from the office of the Koch brothers to a rally at the United Nations Building.
What: Stand For Freedom March on the United Nations in New York
When: Saturday, December 10th, 10:30 AM
Where: Start at the office of the Koch Brothers on Madison Ave. and E. 61st St., and march to Dag Hammarskjold Plaza

The Koch brothers don’t just want to take away your right to vote. They want to trick you into believing they are voting rights supporters.

The same oil billionaires who bankroll the Tea Party are now channeling their vast fortune to limit the right to vote in 38 states and counting. The NAACP has sounded the alarm against their attacks, launching Stand4Freedom.org to expose them and mobilizing a rally outside their New York headquarters on December 10th.

Now here’s the amazing part: The Koch brothers have responded with a bizarre online advertising campaign. Now, when you search for the NAACP on Google, they’ve paid to have ads pop up directing people to a “Stand for Liberty” web page — a page that’s a blatant take-off of Stand4Freedom.org and actually brags about the Koch’s so-called commitment to civil liberties.

Do they think we’re stupid? That’s not just inaccurate — it’s offensive.

The NAACP has always risen to protect our nation’s most vulnerable populations when their rights have been threatened, and we will continue to do so with your help. We need you to take action now, to ensure that millions are not disenfranchised next year.

Regardless of what they want you to believe, the facts are clear. The Koch brothers have a long history of fighting civil rights. For years they have bankrolled extreme right-wing and anti-government think tanks and fought affirmative action and other civil rights initiatives. Recently the PAC that they founded led the political effort to re-segregate North Carolina schools, and now they have launched their biggest initiative yet: to roll back voting rights in advance of the 2012 election.

Photo ID as a prerequisite to voting, proof of citizenship before casting a ballot, radically restrictive rules on registering new voters, dramatic cuts to early voting and Sunday voting — these are just a few of the tactics that the Koch Brothers are using to make it harder for you to vote.

If the Koch brothers have their way, millions of students, the elderly and working families of all colors will fall victim to arcane voter suppression laws that this country hasn’t seen in one hundred years.

Throughout our history, Anna, the NAACP has taken on powerful enemies and won. With your help, we’ll beat back these attacks on our most fundamental rights. Join us on December 10, and sign the Stand For Freedom pledge today:

Join us in the fight, and together we can protect the right to vote for millions of Americans for years to come.
