Today’s Action: We need the For The People Act now more than ever!

You may have seen the headlines, the headlines, the headlines. The GOP is on a nationwide attack strategy to suppress the voters who took away their power. They have introduced over 250 bills in nearly every state in the nation, including key purple states like Georgia and Florida (already passed in both), Arizona, and Texas.

With most bills aimed at blocking the votes of BIPOC voters, this is nothing short of a return to Jim Crow politics – and the more that pass, the harder it will be to undo the damage.

In this state of emergency for our democracy, the Senate MUST pass the For The People Act.

Call or email your Senators and demand they do everything in their power to pass the For The People Act of 2021 (including eliminating the Jim Crow filibuster to do it). Then, amply your message by sending a letter to the editor of your local newspaper – be sure to name your Senators! 

The For The People Act is a sweeping upgrade of election accessibility, transparency, and security, and would override the wave of GOP anti-voter laws sweeping the nation. It creates a national voter registration program, makes Election Day a national holiday, and crushes gerrymandering and voter roll purges. It includes campaign finance reform, limiting foreign lobbying and requiring SuperPACS to disclose donors. It even includes support for a constitutional amendment to Citizens United. It’s voting rights for the people, which is where voting should belong, but often doesn’t.

Our Senators must hear from us loud and clear: the For the People Act is exactly what our democracy needs at this moment, and it’s their job to deliver it.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators and tell them to stop racist GOP voter suppression by passing the For The People Act by any means necessary. Next, send a letter to your local newspaper to signal-boost your request!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to hold the head of the NRA accountable for torturing and killing an endangered elephant on camera, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
