In case you missed it, LWVUS sent an e-mail (check your inbox) to sign their petition to ask President Biden to speak out a lot to urge the US Senate to pass S#1 (one of our goals) any way possible. This bill will be a once-in-a-lifetime bill to restore the Voting Rights Act, and modernize our voter registration system, among other things. This bill will decrease money in politics a great deal too...
We're close to passing once-in-a-generation legislation to protect the freedom to vote.
The For the People Act (S1) would:
• Restore the Voting Rights Act;
• Modernize our voter registration system;
• Restore voting rights to formerly-incarcerated individuals;
• Curb partisan gerrymandering; and
• Make campaign contributions more transparent.
President Biden was elected to office to improve our democracy -- and that's why we're calling on him to continue speaking out in favor of S1 and to urge the Senate to pass it by any means necessary!
Sign the petition [https://actionnetwork.org/petitions/sign-the-petition-to-president-biden-speak-out-and-lead-for-our-voting-rights?source=2021BidenForS1_LWV&referrer=group-league-of-women-voters-of-the-united-states] today to let him know you feel the same way! Together, we can strengthen our democracy.
