Progressives kicked off 2019 with a big win: The For the People Act (HR1), a sweeping reform bill that tackles corruption, election interference, and protects the right to vote, passed in the House.
The bill reinforces Stand Up America’s push for democracy-strengthening policies at the state level, which are especially critical as long as the Republican-controlled Senate refuses to take action to protect and strengthen our democracy. This year in New York state, we drove over 5,000 grassroots calls in support of bold campaign finance reform that would elevate the voices of working families and automatic voter registration, which would add over a million new voters to the rolls. We’ll be organizing in additional states soon.
It’s time to make fixing our broken political system a priority. If you’re committed to strengthening our democracy, add your name to stand with us and we’ll be in touch with ways to take action.
