Sign the petition to President Biden: Speak out to protect our democracy

We are close to passing once-in-a-generation, landmark legislation to protect our democracy and begin to address the crisis of online disinformation. But that final step — an up-or-down vote in the U.S. Senate — is being blocked by Republicans’ abuse of the legislative filibuster, an arcane Senate procedure that was created by accident and has historically most often been used to block progress on civil rights. 

S.1, the For the People Act, is a sweeping package to realize the promise of our democracy, limit the influence of money in politics, ensure our freedom to vote, increase transparency to fight online disinformation, and guarantee that congressional districts are drawn to give fair representation for all.

We need leadership at this moment to remind the Senate that poll after poll shows a strong majority of Americans want the bill passed. President Biden must forcefully speak out in favor of doing whatever is necessary, including reforming the filibuster, to ensure that the For the People Act passes.

President Biden was elected to office to improve our democracy — and this includes ensuring that voters’ rights are protected, corporate money does not buy our elections, and political disinformation does not spread rampantly online. That is why we’re calling on him to continue speaking out in favor of S.1 and to urge the Senate to pass it by any means necessary.

Sign the petition: Biden must speak out in favor of doing whatever is necessary to pass S.1.
