Today’s Action: Eliminate the filibuster and pass the For The People Act!

Democratic legislators have been working nonstop in DC and beyond to fight for their most marginalized constituents’ right to vote. Unfortunately, GOP senators have stood by their promise to block every Democratic agenda item, including voting rights, with their almighty filibuster.

With GOP leaders across the nation passing heinous state-level voter suppression laws, we need the For The People Act now more than ever to protect our fundamental right to free and fair elections.

Every one of our elected representatives should be fighting for an end to the filibuster and the immediate passage of major federal voter protection laws.

Call (202-224-3121) or email your senators and tell them that the passage of federal voting protections is our last line of defense against GOP voter suppression laws!

The For The People Act is an overhaul of election accessibility, transparency, and security. It creates a national voter registration program, makes Election Day a national holiday, and puts an end to gerrymandering and voter roll purges. It also implements campaign finance reform, limits foreign lobbying, and requires super PACs to disclose donors. It even includes support for a constitutional amendment to repeal Citizens United. Unless these measures are passed soon, our 2022 midterm elections will see millions of would-be voters suppressed — mostly people of color and the poor.

Our senators must understand the urgency of the situation. The For The People Act is exactly what our communities need at this moment, and we elected them to deliver.

Call (202-224-3121) or email your senators and demand that they pass sweeping federal voter protection efforts through the For The People Act now, and remind them our democracy depends on it!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling Congress to overturn extremist anti-abortion laws in Texas and Mississippi, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
