Take Action: Pass the For the People Act

The For the People Act (S.1) contains scores of pro-voter, anti-corruption solutions designed to give power to people, including communities of color, and to strengthen the foundations of U.S. democracy.

The United States needs bold democracy reform such as  the For the People Act to rebuild confidence in our political system and unblock progress on policies that Americans care about, such as more accessible health care, gun violence prevention, clean air and water, and so much more.

Today, tell your senators to pass the For the People Act, which would:

  1. Establish uniform rules to protect and expand the right of all eligible Americans to securely vote and be fairly represented.
  2. Reduce the corrupting influence of wealthy special interest money and amplify small-dollar donations so that lawmakers are incentivized to work on behalf of everyday Americans.
  3. Enact tough new ethics laws so that all government officials work in the best interests of the American people.

The Center for American Progress is an independent nonpartisan policy institute that is dedicated to improving the lives of all Americans, through bold, progressive ideas, as well as strong leadership and concerted action. Our aim is not just to change the conversation, but to change the country.
