Our democracy has been under assault for years by powerful special interests who want to buy their way into our government. They have helped elect politicians who put their needs first and then do everything they can to make sure they can’t be held accountable by voters – introducing strict voter ID requirements, gerrymandering districts so it’s nearly impossible for them to lose, and more.
This has gone on for too long, and warped our government. It’s time to do something about it. Take action right now to show your support for the legislation that will help get money out of politics, protect our right to vote, overhaul ethics laws, and make sure ALL our voices are heard. Support H.R. 1, the For the People Act Today!
H.R. 1 is a chance to ask every member of Congress whether they support fair elections and an inclusive democracy. You can help right now by signing this petition and joining the fight. We need your voice today, but we are going to need you to speaking up to save our democracy from big money interests.
Our country works best when as many people as possible can actively participate in our democracy. People power has been our secret weapon to help protect our water and health for more than 46 years. The Clean Water Act and other landmark laws that we rely on to safeguard our environment and communities didn’t just happen because elected officials thought they were good ideas – the public demanded that Congress act. It’s how our democracy is supposed to work.
Why? Because our elected officials are listening to their donors, not their voters.
Help change that. Sign the petition to support the For the People Act today!
