Trump’s behavior while he was in office was excessively, cartoonishly, and so transparently corrupt that we need to make sure that this abuse of power can never happen again. So this week, we’re exploring one way we can start building back trust in our democracy: by curbing corruption with the For the People Act.
The For the People Act would put power back where it belongs: in the hands of voters. For the next three weeks, we’ll get into how this legislation would fix three big problems that stand in the way of progressive power, starting with the outsized influence of big donors on our politics.
Together, we can protect our democracy for future generations and build the political power needed to make it stronger and more representative than it’s ever been before.
