LOG YOUR CALL: The Senate must pass the For the People Act

We’ve only made it as far as we have — passing the For the People Act through the House back in March and working through Senate committees — thanks to your efforts. Today’s vote is a step in the right direction, even though Mitch McConnell’s Senate minority has already pledged to filibuster this bill. That’s why today, we are kicking off a summer-long mobilization for our democracy.

No matter what state you live in, and whether your senators are for, against, or undecided on the bill, it will make a difference. We are anticipating a major push by our anti-democracy opponents, which means all 100 senators need to hear loud and clear that their constituents support this bill.

Your voice is critically important right now — can you please call your senators at 1-833-497-4273 — then let us know how your call went here >>

Together, we have:
