LWVUS For The People Act (HR1) Friendbank
The For the People Act (HR1) is expected to be brought to a vote in the House of Representatives soon! HR1 is a top priority for the League of Women Voters because it addresses some of the most pressing issues facing our democracy. HR1 will:
- Restore the Voting Rights Act;
- Modernize our voter registration system;
- Update the public financing of elections through small donor matching funds;
- Curb partisan gerrymandering;
- Make campaign contributions more transparent, and more!
To get this bill passed, we need to contact our representatives and mobilize our networks to do the same! Inviting our own friends, families, and acquaintances to take action builds our collective power by multiplying our efforts and showing our representatives we are watching and care about these reforms.
How will it work?
Join us March 3 at 5 pm ET on Zoom for a brief training on how to use our relational organizing tool OutreachCircle to contact your networks via text and/or email. After the training, we will go into breakout rooms with other League members, staff, and volunteers to spend time contacting our friends and family, encouraging them to contact their representatives and vote Yes on the For the People Act!
