Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is another letter from Progressive Secretary.

URGENT — The “For the People Act” is coming up for a Senate floor vote this week (week of June 20th).

Our letter supports actions by People for the American Way, Our Revolution, Demand Progress, and others. It asks the Senate to pass, S.1.

According to the Brennan Center for Justice, “The ‘For the People Act’ would transform our democracy by making it fairer, stronger, and more inclusive.”

We’ll send your email messages to your Senators. (The House passed the bill on March 3rd (220-210) as H.R.1)
.

In 2021, Americans still don’t have a constitutional right to vote. That’s why we need laws to secure our ballot access. Now, more than ever, this legislation is urgent.

This year, 48 states are attempting to suppress the vote at levels we haven’t seen since the Jim Crow era. As of May 14th, legislators in those states have introduced 389 bills with restrictive provisions. They’ve already enacted 22 bills with those restrictions.

S.1 contains necessary reforms to ensure voter registration, access to the ballot, and verifiable election results. It addresses serious threats to our democracy posed by restrictive state laws.

In America, democracy isn’t a guarantee, but S.1 will help protect it.

Vote for S.1, the “For the People Act.”.

Kathie Turner, Executive Director
