NEWS & UPDATES

Finish the Job Rally

FRIDAY AT 5:30 PM EDT – 6:30 PM EDT
County Building
501 1st Ave N
St. Petersburg, FL 3370
1

Across the country, extremist state politicians are passing anti-voter bills making it harder for people to vote, especially for people of color. Now, these same state politicians are preparing to draw highly partisan congressional maps that will effectively disenfranchise voters for the next decade. Luckily, there is a solution.

The For the People Act (S1) would protect our freedom to vote, get big money out of politics, ensure fair districts, and help create a democracy that works for all of us.

And on September 13th, Senators will return to Washington DC and Majority Leader Schumer has promised that voting rights will be the first legislative priority when the Senate returns. With redistricting already underway, we don’t have time to waste.

Join us on September 17th for our local event as a part of a nationwide Day of Action to urge the Senate to Finish the Job For the People by passing the For the People Act quickly and to demand that they let nothing, including the filibuster, prevent them from getting the job done.

Tell Members of Congress: Oppose Fossil Fuel Subsidies

Our allies at Progressive Democrats of America and Food & Water Action have pointed out that currently only a handful of members of Congress have committed to ending fossil fuel subsidies. That is completely unacceptable as we are in a climate crisis and have the means to shift to solar power.

Can you take (1) one minute and send a message to your member of Congress to oppose fossil fuel subsidies?
