President Biden Advocates for Voting Rights Bills

Speaks on topic at commencement address at South Carolina State University.

President Joe Biden was the featured speaker for the commencement address at South Carolina State University’s graduation ceremony last week. The president touched on a number of issues as he spoke at the historically black college, focusing mainly on voting rights, police reform, and his general frustration with those opposing federal voting reforms.

“As John Lewis said, it is the only — without the right to vote, there is no democracy. It’s not just about who gets to vote or making it easier, as we used to try to do, to make people eligible be able to vote. It’s about who gets to count the vote or whether your vote counts at all,” the president said. “We must pass the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act,” the president added.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For President Biden to seek God’s guidance as he set policy for the nation.
  • For wisdom for members of Congress as they consider the president’s agenda.
