Demand Democracy Reform in the Senate: Pass the For the People Act
Our democracy is broken. But we have an opportunity to fix it.
The For the People Act (H.R.1/ S.1), is the boldest democracy reform bill introduced in decades. We are on a path to getting once-in-a-generation legislation to the President’s desk, but we need to make our voices heard to ensure it passes the Senate!
If enacted, the For the People Act will:
Protect and strengthen our sacred right to vote, especially in Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities.
Combat corruption by passing pro-ethics measures to clean up our government.
End the dominance of big money in politics so the people's voice can be heard.
Restore Public Trust in the Election Systems The United States has one of the lowest voter turnout rates among developed nations, where nearly a quarter of all eligible voters are not registered. If passed, this bill can establish automatic voter registration, prohibit partisan gerrymandering, enhance federal support for voting system security, and bring an end to the use of dark money in politics by strengthening ethics laws and campaign finance oversight.
Prioritize Equal Access to the Polls The For the People Act will modernize our election administration systems and provide practical solutions to long-standing problems that were exacerbated amidst the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.
The 2020 electoral process saw deep voter disenfranchisement, as false claims of voter fraud raged rampant, and mail-in ballots were villainized with misinformation. Such issues cultimanted into the distortion of the democratic process and the undermining of trust in our electoral processes.
S.1 will ensure a more secure democracy and protect the right to vote!
However, WE NEED YOUR HELP to ensure the bill passes in the Senate.
