ORGANIZING CALL TO SUPPORT PASSAGE OF FOR THE PEOPLE ACT

Thursday, March 4, 2021 @ 5 PM PT

RSVP: https://www.mobilize.us/commoncause/event/377215/

Press release: https://www.commoncause.org/press-release/common-cause-urges-u-s-house-members-to-support-the-for-the-people-act-h-r-1-2/


Join our special guests and Common Cause experts on Thursday to discuss the H.R. 1/S.1
For the People Act -- you'll have a chance to ask questions and join the conversation about our strategy to make voting rights, money in politics, redistricting, and ethics reforms a priority in the new Congress.

The For The People Act is a voting rights, campaign finance, redistricting reform, and ethics bill to level the playing field in our democracy. It was introduced as the top priority of the
new Congress -- H.R. 1/S.1 -- because everything else depends on our democracy working for all of us.

Our freedom to vote is sacred – we must protect and expand it to ensure that all eligible Americans have a voice in our democracy.

Passing the For the People Act will...

✅ Modernize voter registration

✅ Enhance election security

✅ Expand early voting options

✅ Restore voting rights to people with prior felony convictions
