Supporters of the For the People Act rallied on the steps of the Supreme Court June 9 to speak out about the necessity of passing the bill in order to realize the promise of our democracy.
The legislation, which has passed the House of Representatives and awaits action in the Senate, will get big money out of politics, ensure our freedom to vote, and guarantee that congressional districts are drawn to give fair representation for all.
CWA Secretary-Treasurer Sara Steffens addressed the crowd. “As we continue rebuilding from this pandemic and the economic crisis that happened as a result, I want us all to take a moment to remember that it was working people who put their lives on the line every day to keep our grocery stores open, keep our hospitals operating, keep our internet connected, and to uphold our democracy through these last elections,” Steffens said. “Now is the time to recognize that essential workers are essential to our democracy. That’s what the For the People Act is all about: restoring power for working families in this country.”
We need to let every member of the Senate know that working people want them to pass the For the People Act. Call your Senators at 1-855-790-7628.
