Petition Senators to Pass the For The People Act (H.R.1./S.1)

Your senators are now considering the For the People Act (S.1), a vital piece of legislation that would put power in the hands of voters—not wealthy special interests who can buy influence—and establish uniform rules to protect and expand the right of all eligible Americans to securely vote and be fairly representated. This democracy saving legislation is now ready for consideration by the full Senate.

Sign the open petition telling senators to prioritize this bold legislation.

Why It Matters:

We're facing an existential threat: climate change. Two-thirds of American adults agree with this statement, yet 139 members of Congress—who are paid by special interests and the fossil fuel industry—publicly dispute its existence. Fair, open elections would stop gaping disconnects like these and yield laws that reflect the will of the American people, as they should in a functioning democracy.

The people who bear the brunt of climate change and unchecked pollution often struggle to exercise their voting rights and affect change that matters in their communities because the political system suppresses their voices.
