Tell the Senate to Pass the For the People Act

S. 1, the For the People Act, is a landmark piece of legislation that would strengthen our democracy and improve ballot access nationwide.

H.R. 1, the House version of the legislation, has already passed. Now it’s up to the Senate to get the bill to President Biden’s desk. 

We urgently need transformative democracy reforms to protect against the influence of special interests and stop Republican voter suppression tactics that predominantly disenfranchise Black and brown voters.

The For the People Act would make our government more responsive to the needs of the people and help restore faith in our democracy; however, it’s unlikely to pass the Senate unless the Democratic majority agrees to abolish the filibuster — an obsolete relic of the Jim Crow era that Mitch McConnell has abused to block most major legislation.

Democrats in the Senate now must choose between keeping the filibuster or keeping their promises. It’s that simple.

Urge your senators to end the filibuster and protect our right to vote by passing S. 1, the For the People Act.
