Last night the U.S House of Representatives voted to pass H.R.1, a once-in-a-generation democracy reform package to clean up our political system, expand and protect voting rights, get big money out of politics, and hold elected officials accountable for corruption. The bill will now proceed to the U.S. Senate for a vote.

Sign here to demand that the U.S. Senate pass the For The People Act and rebuild our democracy

Since 2010, Free Speech For People has been working to defend our Constitution, fulfill the promise of political equality for all, and actualize the vision of self-government: of, by, and for the people. Last year we released a statement in support of H.R.1 – this landmark legislation to rebuild our democracy – and we’re one step closer to achieving the vision of a more inclusive democracy.

Among its reforms, the For The People Act:

  • Establishes two weeks of early voting and nationwide automatic and same-day voter registration;
  • Creates a nationwide public campaign financing system that prioritizes small donors;
  • Calls for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United;
  • Ends partisan gerrymandering;
  • Requires super PACs and dark money organizations to disclose their donors;
  • Increases support for voter-verified paper ballots and nationwide voting-by-mail; and
  • Prohibits the spread of false information about the election process.

Call your Senators at (202) 224-3121 or (202) 224-3091 (TTY). Urge them to end the filibuster and pass the For The People Act.
