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, social economic programs, 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.
