With the pandemics of systemic racism, poverty, voter suppression and COVID-19
still wreaking havoc on our daily lives, our democracy, and our nation’s social and
moral infrastructure, we need Congress to pass voting rights protections and
the full Build Back Better plan before the end of the year.

Join the Poor People’s Campaign and partner organizations for a Moral Monday March
on Washington D.C. to tell Congress: Get It Done in 2021!


WE DEMAND:

1. Pass the FULL Build Back Better Act

2. Pass the Freedom to Vote Act

3. Pass the Voting Rights Advancement Act

4. Raise the Minimum Wage to a living wage

5. End the Filibuster

6. Pass Protections for ALL immigrants

CALL TO ACTION: END THE FILIBUSTER, PASS BBB, PASS VOTING RIGHTS

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

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 and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act must happen now! We also must pass legislation for climate change, as well as social programs such as Medicare expansion, child care, paid family leave, and more.
