Tackling the Filibuster for Voting Rights

In the latest blow to our democracy, the Supreme Court recently upheld Arizona laws restricting voter access, disproportionately impacting voters of color. 

 

Similar efforts to suppress voting rights are now happening in other states emboldened by the SCOTUS decision.

 

Federal action is needed but Republican Senators have used the filibuster to block a debate on the "For the People Act" which protects and expands voting rights. 

 

Common Cause calls the filibuster undemocratic because it means a minority can stop any legislation in its tracks. Demos says it’s a racist system designed to entrench white minority rule. 

 

And the Poor People’s Campaign has called for a “Season of Nonviolent Direct Action' targeting the US Senate.

 

Learn more, act now. End the filibuster.
