To save Democracy #HR1 also known as #ForThePeopleAct must become the law of the land before the next national election.

H.R.1 - 117th Congress (2021-2022): For the People Act of 2021 | Congress.gov | Library of Congress

The For the People Act is a bill in the United States Congress to expand voting rights, change campaign finance laws to reduce the influence of money in politics, limit partisan gerrymandering, and create new ethics rules for federal officeholders.

This historic legislation would make it easier to vote in federal elections, end congressional gerrymandering, overhaul federal campaign finance laws, and increase safeguards against foreign interference.

The 2020 election underscored the need for comprehensive, structural democracy reform. Americans across the country were forced to overcome rampant voter suppression, gerrymandering, and a torrent of special-interest dark money just to exercise their vote and their voice in our democracy.

Democrats are committed to advancing H.R. 1, the For the People Act a transformational anti-corruption and clean elections reform package in the 117th Congress.

Will Democrats clean up corruption in Washington, empower the American people and restore faith and integrity to our government with H.R. 1?

Contact your Senator and ask him to package together the key voting rights parts of H.R. 1 and H.R. 4--ones that would directly address the voter suppression efforts in Georgia--and brought that legislation to the floor ASAP.
