Senator Bernie Sanders joined civil rights activists for the last leg of a 860-mile march in support of voting rights.
Demonstrators were advocating for the restoration of the Voting Rights Act.
The “Journey for Justice” crossed Memorial Bridge into Washington, DC and ended on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
“Our job is to make it easier to vote. Our job is to try to increase voter turnout. And these Republican governors are afraid when people get into the ballot box and they don’t want them to vote. We’re gonna change that,” Sanders said.
Senator Sanders denounced “cowards” in Statehouses who create new laws designed to make it harder for people to vote.
