PASS THE FOR THE PEOPLE ACT
The For the People Act is the democracy reform bill the American people want and deserve. This legislation will put power back into the hands of American voters by making voting easier and more accessible and by modernizing future elections. Over the last two years, we saw it pass the House or Representatives, but get stalled at the Senate. With the start of the 117th Congress it is imperative that the For the People Act once more become a top priority. The For the People Act addresses some of the most pressing issues facing our democracy because it will:
Restore the Voting Rights Act
Modernize our voter registration system
Update the public financing of elections through small donor matching funds
Curb partisan gerrymandering, and
Make campaign contributions more transparent.
Contact your Representative TODAY through the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and tell them to pass the For The People Act. Put control of our government back where it belongs—into the hands of the people.
