There is a united effort by the Fair Elections coalition, the Let New York Vote coalition, Common Cause, Indivisible and many other groups to get the For the People Act passed. We are hoping to get 1,000 people on this call to show Senator Schumer that he needs to take action to get the For the People Act passed. The citizens of New York State are critical in putting pressure on the Senator. Please join this call!
This town hall is about the For The People Act, which will protect and expand our democracy. We’ll hear the latest update on where the legislation stands in the Senate, get answers on how the bill impacts you, and talk about its connections to the civil rights movement.
By joining this event, you are helping us combat mass voter suppression and strengthen our democracy!
The For the People Act (HR1/S1) is the most critical voting rights legislation of our lifetime, and its fate will be determined in the next two months.
The bill seeks to prevent partisan gerrymandering, strengthen the right to vote, lessen the influence of big money in our politics, and restore ethical norms.
It’s a desperately needed response to decades of voter suppression (including the current legislative efforts in many states right now) and other assaults on democracy, like those that led to the Jan. 6 Capitol uprising.
