Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is another action alert from Progressive Secretary.

This letter supports campaigns by Our Revolution, Demand Progress, the Daily Kos, and many others. It asks the Senate to either amend or end the filibuster so that the people’s will can become the law of the land.

There are several options for amending the filibuster rule, or the Senate could eliminate it. Some action is necessary to enact the most important legislation, and the Senate alone can fix it.

We will send this message to your Senators
:

The filibuster will be the death of democracy unless the Senate acts — and soon.

Congress considered a bold voting rights bill entitled the “For the People Act” to strengthen democracy and reduce corruption. Senate Republicans blocked its progress.

Senator Manchin negotiated a trimmed-down bill (the “Freedom to Vote Act”) that he was sure would garner support from Republicans. It did not.

The American people support the provisions of these voting rights bills. That 19 states have enacted at least 33 restrictive voting laws this year shows that a federal voting rights bill is necessary.

The filibuster impedes the enactment of these essential bills. Please end or amend the filibuster rule so that our democracy can survive.

Click here to send this letter or to learn more (you can edit the letter in the next step, if you wish).

Sincerely,

Kathie Turner, Executive Director
