Urge Congress to protect voting, election rights

I support the For the People Act, which has been passed through the House and will be presented to the Senate later this month. This bill would make it easier to vote in federal elections. It would end congressional gerrymandering (unfair redistricting.) It would also overhaul federal campaign finance laws and strengthen governmental ethics rules.

The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act would restore, strengthen and modernize the Voting Rights Act, protecting citizens from racial discrimination in regard to voting.

If you agree with these ideas, please contact our senators, as well as the Biden administration, and ask them to use all their influence to promote these bills.

No public issue is more important right now.
