The horrific insurrection at the Capitol incited by Donald Trump and his enablers in Congress underscored the urgent need to address the perilous threats to our democracy. And during the 2020 election season, we experienced unprecedented levels of voter suppression efforts and rampant ethical abuses by special interests.
Now, there's critical legislation in the U.S. Senate that will help reach that essential goal. The For the People Act (S. 1) would expand and protect the ability of all citizens to vote, curb the influence of big money in politics and end congressional gerrymandering, and stop rampant government corruption by holding elected officials to the highest ethical standards.
This bill would help create a democracy that works for all of us — especially for low-income communities and communities of color, which are often most impacted by these fundamental issues.
We simply can't tackle the greatest challenges facing our planet and our communities right now — chief among them, the climate crisis — without a functioning democracy.
President Biden has committed to prioritizing comprehensive reforms to end special interest control of Washington and protect the voice and vote of every American. Passing this vital legislation is a critical first step.
Please urge your senators to do their part to ensure an inclusive democracy for all by helping pass the For the People Act.
Tell your seantors to help pass the For the People Act (S. 1) to expand and protect voting rights for all Americans, crack down on big money in politics, and overhaul ethics laws to create an inclusive, responsive democracy for all.
Vote YES on the For the People Act (S. 1)
