Today’s Action: End the filibuster!

Senate Democrats are hoping to once again break through the GOP-backed filibuster and pass crucial voting rights legislation next week. There’s a crack in the Republican defense now that they’ve wavered on their debt ceiling stance, and this is the time to make sure they hear us.

Senate Republicans are hellbent on stonewalling every single Biden agenda item, and now their 21st-century temper tantrum is getting in the way of real change for working families.

Abortion access, preventing a recession, voting rights, Medicaid expansion, cannabis reform, universal pre-k and college access, an expanded child tax credit that’s already alleviated child poverty by 50% across the country — there’s a lot on the line. But none of it can pass with the filibuster in place.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your senators and demand to end the filibuster as soon as possible so that working families can receive necessary care! 

Simply put, the filibuster’s past and present is racist. It has been used repeatedly over the last century to block major pieces of civil rights legislation, dramatically slowing our progress toward becoming that more perfect union put forth in the Constitution. And in Mitch McConnell’s hands it has become the primary conservative weapon, brandished at will to prevent popular progressive legislation supported by a clear majority of Americans from becoming law.

The filibuster MUST go. Now.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your senators and remind them that ending the filibuster is the only way forward for our country!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to arrest and charge every insurgent involved with the Trump-inspired MAGA coup on the Capitol, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
