CALL TO ACTION: END THE FILIBUSTER

The PPC is demanding an end to the filibuster rule which is blocking passage of voting rights.

Tell our CA senators that the filibuster -- a Jim Crow era relic -- must end to allow voting rights legislation. Passage of the Freedom to Vote Act must happen now! We also must pass legislation for climate change and human infrastructure, such as Medicare expansion,
child care, and more.

Join in emailing this letter to our senators to demand an end to the filibuster (easy peasy!):
