Help Stop Voting Rights Abuses! Contact your Congressperson today

It’s gone way too far and it’s time to do something about it. Click here to ask your member of Congress to support H.R.1 - the For the People Act - to ensure a fair and functioning democracy for us all.

The same corporate interests that fight us at the bargaining table are stacking the rules against us when it comes to political participation. They've put restrictions in place that make it harder for people to vote, flooded elections with money, and weakened the rules that prevent elected officials from profiting from their public service.

The new Congressional leadership promised to make reform a top priority. The For the People Act is the first major piece of legislation they are considering this year. The bill would:

Make it easier, not harder, to vote by restoring the Voting Rights Act, implementing national voter registration, expanding early voting and ending gerrymandering.

Get big money out of our democracy by regulating big money in politics like Super PACS, requiring all political organizations to disclose their donors, and building a campaign finance system to increase and multiply the power of small donors.

Ensure public officials work for the public interest by expanding conflict of interest law, strengthening oversight of lobbyists, and more.

If those sound like changes we need to make, contact your member of Congress today.

In solidarity,
Dennis Trainor
Vice President, CWA District 1
