Vote Yes for Jan. 6th Commission
We urge you to support a 9/11-style Commission charged with investigating and reporting on the facts and causes relating to the January 6, 2021, attack on the United States Capitol which sought to interrupt the peaceful transfer of power. The Commission’s mandate should include investigation of the facts
Abolish the Filibuster
The fillibuster is antidemocratic. At this point it stands directly in the way of voting rights and national security by blocking the bill to investigate the 1/6 insurrection. There is neither a political nor an ideological reason to maintain it. Democrats have gone out of their way in the interest of bipartisan cooperation for the creation of a commission to investigate the insurrection.

“…when congressional staff were asked what advocacy factors influence an ‘undecided’ lawmaker, 94% said ‘in-person issue visits from constituents’ would have some or a lot of influence and 92% said ‘individualized email messages’ from constituents would. Despite the haranguing of mainstream media to the contrary, and popular culture insisting that citizen voices are muted in Washington… constituents remain significant factors to legislators’ decision-making.”Congressional Management Foundation, 2017 Study
