The Filibuster:
Change It or Dump It

But Get Voting Rights Done!

To get the Freedom to Vote Act through the Senate the filibuster either has to go or be completely overhauled. Republicans have to actually stand before the American people and say publicly why they are against giving people the right to vote. And the 60-vote rule has to go so it takes only a majority vote to pass voting rights legislation. 

It’s Time to Pass the Freedom to Vote Act!

Senator Schumer, as Senate Majority Leader, represents us all.


Call : 202-224-6542 or email and tell him to support filibuster reform in order to get national voting rights protections done:

It’s time for President Biden to put his full weight behind the Freedom to Vote Act. Email President Biden here: https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/
As President Pro-temp Senator Leahy has power. He needs to use it and come out for overhauling the filibuster or getting rid of it. Call his office: 202 224 4242

Let’s get this bill over the finish line!

November 2


9 Days to Keep Virginia Blue


The entire nation will be watching Virginia on November 2. If Trump-backed candidates win, then Republicans will be emboldened and our work in 2022 will be that much harder. Help Virginia elect a Governor, Lt Governor, Attorney General and their House of Delegates: recruit poll observers, help correct mail-in ballots, call for candidates, or GOTV in communities of color.
