Today’s Action: Eliminate the Jim Crow filibuster

Joe Manchin is onboard. Joe Biden is onboard. Now is the time to act!

For too long, Mitch McConnell has abused the Senate’s provision for unlimited debate to enable a minority of senators to overturn the will of the majority of Americans. But that progress-halting power could be on the verge of extinction — IF we demand it.

Contact your Senators TODAY and demand they work to eliminate the Senate’s minority veto by ending the filibuster as we know it!

What’s the 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; the minority has nearly the same power as the majority, thanks to the filibuster.

The filibuster’s past and present is racist. It has been used countless times since the early 20th-century to block major pieces of civil rights legislation, and extend the life of horrific Jim Crow laws — prompting Rep. Ayanna Pressley to accurately dub it “the Jim Crow Filibuster.” President Obama has said the filibuster made it impossible for him to effectively govern. And, the GOP will use it to block our legislation designed to advance the voting rights of Black Americans.

Call or email your Senators and demand they eliminate the Jim Crow filibuster, to allow the majority of Americans to finally rule in the United States!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition calling on Republicans stop their racist lies about the pandemic, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
