Today’s Action: We don’t stop until we have the For The People Act!

Georgia Republicans have signed into law the most repressive and racist voter suppression policies in more than half a century. The measures are a targeted attack to undermine Black voters but will also impact ALL Georgia voters. And similar laws are being considered in dozens of other states, including Florida and Texas, aimed at suppressing voters of color.

This is our one shot. If Congress doesn’t pass widespread voter protections right now, our next round of elections may include more roadblocks to voting than we’ve seen in decades…and rest assured those roadblocks will impact Democrats far more than Republicans.

Even if your Senators already support the For The People Act (and every Democratic Senator has, except Joe Manchin), it’s vital that you keep the pressure on. We have to convey the urgency this issue deserves, so that Democrats find a way to get it passed no matter what (including abolishing the Jim Crow filibuster).

Go to your Senators’ top donors and demand their support for the For The People Act of 2021 (H.R.1/S.1)! Ask them to make a public statement, directed at your Senator!

  1. Go to Open Secrets and enter your Senator’s name
  2. Scroll down to “Top Contributors 2015-2020”
  3. Choose one of your Senator’s top donors – bonus points if you’re an actual customer or client of that business.
  4. Contact them publicly on social media, list the donation amount, and tag your Senator in the message – or call the corporation directly. Ask them if they will stand up for democracy and voters of color by publicly supporting the For The People Act and the politicians who pass it.

Every future election depends on passing the For The People Act. Take action today like your democracy depends on it – because it does.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to end qualified immunity, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
