Today’s filibuster of the bipartisan January 6th commission—orchestrated by the Senate’s partisan Republican minority—is proof that we can’t protect our democracy with the filibuster intact.
Passing this bill was an act of desperation by a Republican Party terrified of more people voting. While this pathetic attempt to suppress the vote in a key battleground state should immediately be rejected by the Governor, it’s clear that the Arizona GOP will stop at nothing to rewrite the rules of our elections in their favor.
Stand Up America Expands Grassroots Campaign and Gets Big Names on Board to Demand Senate Pass the For the People Act
Earlier this year, Stand Up America launched a six-figure campaign demanding the Senate pass the For the People Act (H.R. 1 // S. 1)—a transformational package of pro-democracy and anti-corruption reforms that would combat the dramatic increase in Jim Crow-style, anti-voter legislation being proposed by Republican lawmakers across the country. Ahead of the bill’s markup in the Senate Rules Committee tomorrow, Stand Up America is today announcing that it’s doubling down on its investment, ramping up grassroots pressure, and getting the help of some big names to do it.
