STATEMENT: For the People Act brings us closer to a real democracy

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, House Democrats unanimously passed H.R. 1, the For the People Act. The For the People Act is a set of pro-democracy measures including  the creation of nationwide automatic and same-day voter registration, restoring the Voting Rights Act, putting an end to partisan gerrymandering, and more ethics laws to ensure our democracy serves the needs of all people.

Please see below for Patti Lynn’s statement:

“Across the country, people are hungry for a democracy where corporations answer to people — not the other way around. On the 2018 ballot, corporate accountability measures won in a landslide.  Now, H.R. 1 provides us an opportunity to take a step toward a more fair, representative, and inclusive democracy. We call on the U.S. Senate to join the House of Representatives and pass H.R.1. And we are committed to organizing with people all across the country to go above the bar set by H.R.1. to ensure our democracy is shaped by and responsive to all people, not transnational corporations.”
