Today’s Action: Pass the Freedom to Vote Act!

During the State of the Union, President Biden reiterated his call for the passage of critical voting rights legislation. In a statement released by the White House, Biden said “The battle for the soul of America has many fronts. The right to vote is the most fundamental.” The renewed call to action comes just in time for the 57th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, when state troopers violently ambushed 600 peaceful demonstrators marching in Selma, Alabama, for equal voting rights. Even today — nearly six decades later — we still have Republicans and conservatives across the country attacking and suppressing marginalized voters.

The Freedom to Vote Act builds on the For the People Act to deliver critical voting measures and redistricting provisions that are absolutely necessary for our future elections, especially since Republicans in states like Texas are already working overtime to gerrymander their way into staying in power. The closer we get to midterms, the more imperative securing the right to vote for all becomes.

Call (202.224.3121) or write your members of Congress and demand an end to the filibuster and the passage of the Freedom to Vote Act! 

All across the nation, conservative state legislatures have been passing anti-voter laws that will greatly affect their most marginalized constituents’ right to vote. The Senate must pass critical protections immediately to ensure our right to free and fair elections. If doing so requires abolishing arcane filibuster rules currently in place, then so be it.

We need to flood senators with demands for the passage of the Freedom to Vote Act today. Remind them that without federal voting protections, millions of peoples’ ability to vote will be jeopardized, along with the health and integrity of our democracy.

Call (202.224.3121) or write your members of Congress to tell them to eliminate the filibuster and advance the Freedom to Vote act!
