Responding to Pressure from Filibuster Reform Advocates, Biden Says He’s Open to Scrapping Rule for Voting Rights “and Maybe More” 

President Biden’s remarks are a huge step in the right direction—but it’s not enough. Now we need action. Every week that goes by we're seeing more rampant Republican voter suppression in the states, more partisan gerrymandering, and more attempts to sabotage and subvert the will of the American people. President Biden must meet this moment and offer his full-throated support for ending the Jim Crow filibuster. We’ll keep up the pressure until he does and the Senate acts to protect our freedom to vote.

Activists, Civil Rights Leaders Arrested in Front of White House While Demanding Biden Publicly Endorse an End to the Jim Crow Filibuster

Two months ago, Stand Up America joined with other advocates to collect over 400,000 signatures from Americans in every congressional district demanding President Biden call on the Senate to end the filibuster and pass legislation to stop this voter suppression. Stand Up America’s members have also made nearly 90,000 calls to Congress imploring them to pass legislation to protect our freedom to vote this year. But, the President of the United States can use his soapbox to make one call and compel Congress in a way that no one else can. President Biden must call on the Senate to end the filibuster to pass voting rights legislation.
