Today’s Action: Make calls to Arizona voters to abolish the Jim Crow filibuster!

Ending debate and officially advancing most legislation to a final vote in the Senate requires 60 votes. So, the minority party may simply vote against ending debate – thereby blocking legislation that would otherwise pass with a simple majority. No long speeches into the night necessary; the GOP can easily stop nearly all of our legislative priorities, thanks to the filibuster. 

If Democrats in Congress want to achieve any of their agenda – and if anyone wants to adhere to the original intent of Congress’ simple majority-rule, as laid out by the Constitution – we must give power back to the majority by eliminating the filibuster.

We only need a simple majority to abolish the filibuster…and we have just a few Democratic Senators left to convince, starting with Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ).

Make calls with Indivisible to Arizona voters to urge them to contact Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, who has stated she wants to keep the filibuster, and demand she change her mind.

What’s at stake, if we don’t abolish the filibuster?

  • Major democracy reforms, like the For The People Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, and statehood for Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico, to overturn GOP voter suppression against voters of color and low-income households.

 

  • Universal healthcare and childcare, particularly important as we face and recover from a global pandemic that has killed over 525,000 Americans and ejected millions of women from the workforce.

 

  • Climate change legislation, like the Green New Deal and other robust responses, to curb and overcome this global emergency.

 

  • Immigration reform, not just to undo Trump’s horrific policies but also to defund ICE/CBP at a structural level.

 

  • Equal rights for LGBTQ+ and Muslim communities…we need the Equality Act and the No Ban Act!

 

  • Ending Endless War, by overturning the AUMFs.

 

  • And so much more…

 

We’re going to achieve this, one resistant moderate Democrat at a time.

Call Arizona voters today (or this week) to spread the word: the filibuster must go, and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema needs to hear it from them!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition restoring voting rights with the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
