Democracy is Worth Fighting For

We recognize that while the For the People Act has passed the US House of Representatives, it faces an uphill battle in the US Senate. But we are no strangers to uphill battles. We  know that no action is possible until the American people stand up and demand it. That is always the first step towards progress.

This bill addresses voter access, election integrity, election security, political spending, and ethics for all three branches of federal government. It:

  • expands voter registration, removes barriers to voting, and outlaws voter purges
  • reinstates the Voting Rights Act
  • requires independent, fair, diverse and transparent redistricting 
  • enhances election security by requiring paper ballots or paper trail, supporting states in cybersecurity 
  • expands disclosure rules and the ban on foreign spending on elections
  • provides federal matching of small contributions for qualified candidates
  • strengthens ethics for all three branches of government by
    • requiring a code of ethics for federal judges, including the Supreme Court
    • prohibiting members of Congress from serving on a for-profit board
    • stregthening conflict-of-interest and ethics regulation for the White House
  • expands regulations on foreign agents 
  • requires candidates for President and Vice President to submit 10 years of tax returns
