Today’s Action: End or amend the filibuster to preserve voting rights!

With an onslaught of voter suppression laws making their way through state legislatures, the need for federal voting rights legislation is greater than ever. As many as 262 bills were introduced last year with the aim of obstructing democracy, in 41 different states. Already 32 of those bills have become law, jeopardizing the right to vote for Americans in 17 states. We’re months into an election-fueled Republican temper tantrum that spiraled into abuse of the filibuster and time is running out in the fight for fair and free elections – it’s time to amend the filibuster.

While a wholesale end to the filibuster may not currently be realistic, we can encourage our senators to grant a carve-out for voting rights in the meantime. Chuck Schumer has promised either action on voting rights or a vote on changing the Senate rules to allow for a carve-out by January 17th. Such an exception could allow for critical voting rights protections to finally reach President Biden’s desk, and we need all hands on deck to ensure it receives the necessary support from our elected officials.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your senators and demand to end the filibuster as soon as possible or allow a carve-out for voting rights legislation! 

To be clear, the fight doesn’t stop with voting rights legislation. Abortion access, preventing a recession, 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.

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 calling for action against DeSantis for his reckless pandemic response, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
