Tell Your Rep To Support H.R. 1
The groundbreaking reform bill introduced in the House earlier this year known as H.R. 1, the For The People Act, could see a vote soon.
In a hearing that took place last week for H.R. 1, Representative Elijah Cummings said,
“This sweeping legislation will clean up corruption in government, fight secret money in politics, and make it easier for American citizens across this great country to vote.”

H.R. 1 is aimed at fixing unfair partisan gerrymandering, cutting the influence of big lobbyists, embracing small dollar political donations, and making access to voting easier for all.
It is intended to address some of the gravest problems in democracy today and we need our elected officials in Congress to champion it.
ACTION for 2/11/2019:
Contact your U.S. representative to say:
H.R.1 is a sweeping reform package that addresses everything from voting rights, to campaign finance reform, to redistricting. I urge you to vote for this reform bill so that we can begin to fix what is broken in American politics.
