Democratic senators have been working behind the scenes to refine the For the People Act -- to increase its chance of passage while maintaining the vital reforms essential to protecting the vote and saving our democracy. Now, Senator Joe Manchin and several of his colleagues introduced the Freedom to Vote Act, a bill that does just that. Passing this bill would be a monumental step forward for our democracy and the American people.
Cosponsored by some of the Senate’s most vocal champions in the fight for voting rights, like Senators Raphael Warnock (D-GA), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), this bill represents a watershed moment that will counteract the rising tide of voter suppression, prevent partisan gerrymandering, and help stop billionaires from buying our elections.
Sign the petition right away and urge the Senate to move swiftly to pass the Freedom to Vote Act and save our democracy!
