President Joe Biden & Congress Must Enact Democracy Reform!
This year, President Joe Biden has many important issues to address: from combating climate change and gun violence, to overcoming the coronavirus pandemic and dismantling systemic racism in America. But in order for the new administration to do that effectively, we need to build a stronger and more representative democracy.
That’s why Biden must urge Congress to pass the For the People Act (HR 1) as a first priority in their administration.
In March 2019, the For the People Act (HR 1) passed the House with unanimous support from the Democratic caucus, and is supported by every Democrat in the Senate — yet the Senate Majority Leader refuses to bring it up for a vote.
The For the People Act 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; and
– Clean up government and hold elected officials to the highest ethical standards.
This bill would transform our political system into one that is more inclusive, responsive, and representative of the American people.
Sign your name to show the next administration and Congress that Day 1 is for Democracy. Demand that the For People Act is a first priority of the next administration and Congress.
