Far-right legislators across the country have been passing bill after bill that restrict our right to vote. And every day we’re getting closer to a very real deadline to take action to pass the For the People Act (S.1): If the Senate does not pass S.1 by August 2021, states will not have enough time to implement the legislation’s regulations before the 2022 midterm elections.
We need Senate Democrats to lead on this issue and fight back in every way possible – including eliminating the Senate filibuster as a barrier to passing this essential legislation. This simply can’t wait.
Urge Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to keep the Senate in session and forego the August recess until they’ve passed the For the People Act!
