We demand a democracy that works for us
We need a democracy where voters are protected from discrimination and can make themselves heard at the ballot box.
A democracy where electoral districts are drawn fairly, so that every voter’s ballot is worth the same.
And a democracy where ordinary Americans -- more women, people of color, and working people -- can run for office without relying on special interest Big Money.
Just imagine what a Congress that took our democracy seriously could accomplish. We must ensure that the For the People Act (H.R. 1), which the House of Representatives passed last year, is passed by the Senate as well.
The solutions in this bill are already working in states and cities across the country -- many of them passed by ballot initiatives with strong bipartisan support -- and we can’t let special interest groups and others who prefer the status quo stand in our way.
Add your name to demand that the Senate makes a bold show of support for our democracy -- and supports the For the People Act.

Our senators must support the For The People Act (H.R. 1) -- a bold, comprehensive package of democracy reforms including: independent redistricting commissions, citizen-funded elections, closing the revolving door between government and corporate interests, and protecting voters against discrimination.
