Join the Call to Action for Voting Rights below.


In August, we rallied in front of the White House to demand that President Biden use his
bully pulpit to urge the Senate to do WHATEVER it takes to urge the Senate to take action
to protect voting rights.

And just a couple of weeks ago, voting rights activists were ARRESTED in front of the White House for calling for Biden to take action.

But still, voting rights legislation has yet to be signed into law this year!

On November 3rd, we're focusing on the future. We're joining with young activists to head to the White House and call on President Biden to get the Senate to either fix or NIX the filibuster and PASS the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.

CALL TO ACTION for VOTING RIGHTS

Speaking out to hold our leaders accountable and let them know the public is watching is vital to participatory democracy. The progressive movement and the fight to defend the American Way depend on the grassroots engagement of everyday Americans. When we speak en masse with petitions, phone calls, rallies, and other actions, our individual voices are amplified, and decision makers from elected officials to CEOs take notice.

Go to the PFAW Action Center to take action for voting rights here: https://www.pfaw.org/action-center/


Or directly contact our CA senators to demand: NIX or FIX the Filibuster, then PASS the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act!
