Democracy is our #1 priority—let’s make it theirs.

Friend,

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact communities across the country, we’re witnessing states scramble to ramp up and expand early voting and mail-in voting programs that have been sorely lacking up until this point. 
  
We’re also continuing to see dominance of big money in our political system and rampant corruption that is eroding our democratic norms. The American people deserve better. 

That’s why the next president and Congress must pass the For the People Act (H.R. 1) as a first priority. Sign the petition to urge our leaders to pass and sign the For the People Act as a first priority.
 
In March 2019, H.R.1 passed the House, yet the Senate Majority Leader refuses to bring it up for a vote or even allow a hearing in committee. The For the People Act (H.R. 1) is a once-in-a-generation package of proven reforms that would:

  • Expand and protect voting rights and access to the ballot;
  • Put ordinary Americans ahead of Big Money donors;
  • End gerrymandering so that electoral districts are fairly drawn;
  • Clean up government and hold elected officials to the highest ethical standards.

The American people are tired of a government that serves only the wealthy and corporate interests. We demand a democracy that works for all of us.

Add your name today - tell Congress to pass the For the People Act as a first order of business in the new administration. 

Together, we can build the support we need to build a democracy that truly represents the American people.

Yours in the fight,

Celina Stewart
Senior Counsel, Senior Director of Advocacy and Litigation
