The For the People Act (H.R. 1), the most comprehensive democracy reform bill in decades, passed the House by a vote of 220-210 last week. The measure rests on three pillars: reaffirming and expanding voting rights, strengthening oversight to end big money in politics, and ensuring an ethical government. To achieve these goals, H.R. 1 would, among other things, institute automatic voter registration and voluntary public financing of campaigns, place new limits on partisan practices like gerrymandering and purging voter rolls, and require candidates for president and vice president to release their tax returns for the previous 10 years. H.R. 1 also makes a strong argument for the District of Columbia to become the 51st state. Tell your senators to support the For the People Act.
Email your senators and tell them we need democracy reform NOW.
