An open letter to the U.S. Senate

Pass HR1/S1 and the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act!

133 so far! Let’s get to 250 signers!

Dear Senator, The House has passed the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act and the For the People Act. The majority of Americans -- Democrats and Republicans -- support both bills. Now is the time for the Senate to act. Nearly all the key provisions of the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act have a majority of voter support, including a federal ban on chokeholds (71%), mandated body cameras for federal officers (84%), a prohibition of racial profiling (71%), and an end to “qualified immunity” for officers in legal cases (59%). The For the People Act, which expands voter access, improves election integrity and security, revises rules for political spending, and sets out provisions related to ethics for all three branches of the federal government, has broad public support. More than two-thirds of likely voters (68%) said they would back the proposal. Just 16% said they opposed it. The support also transcended party lines, with 70% of Democrats, 68% of independents or third-party voters, and 57% of Republican voters expressing approval for the bill. If we can’t get bipartisan support for these bills that the majority of Americans want to see passed, it’s time to eliminate the filibuster in the name of justice and progress.
