An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Provide Equal Access to Voting & End Gerrymandering with the For the People Act

12 so far! Let’s get to 25 signers!

All Americans should have equal access to voting rights and an overwhelming majority are united in support For the People Act. Therefore I urge you to cosponsor HR1 / S1, the For the People Act and abolish the filibuster to ensure it passes. This once-in-a-generation bill is the most comprehensive anti-corruption reform in decades, and we have a real chance to get it passed — if enough of us join the fight. Will you join the fight for our Democracy and cosponsor the act? The For the People Act of 2021 is a sweeping package of voting, ethics, and campaign finance reforms that would end gerrymandering, reduce the influence of big money, increase oversight and accountability, secure and modernize our elections, and ensure politicians work for voters, not special interests. The very structure of our democracy is fragile, particularly seen during the election cycle of 2020. White, rural and wealthy Americans have more voting power than people who are low-income, people of color, and those who live in urban areas, which are unfairly divided by gerrymandering. Rich lobbyists and interest groups fund candidates who may not have the people's best interests at heart. Unfortunately the Senate filibuster allows a few unaccountable senators to block everything and deprive majority-Black and brown residents of their equal access to voting. The filibuster must be abolished to restore our democracy and equal access to voting rights. A recent poll found that 67% of all likely voters support the For the People Act, including over half of Republicans and over 70% of Democrats. It's time to make America better, and HR1 / S1 is a step in the right direction and to pass it the Senate must abolish the filibuster. Thank you,
