Pass HR1 in 2021

To create the kind of change voters want to see in our democracy, our next administration and Congress must support the passage of HR1— the For the People Act — a once-in-a-generation democracy reform package to clean up our political system, get big money out of politics, hold elected officials accountable for corruption, expand and protect voting rights, and create a democracy that values the voices of all Americans. 

It’s a massive overhaul of voting, money-in-politics, and ethics laws — all to make our democracy more inclusive.

Right now, the dominance of big money in politics, political gerrymandering and rampant corruption is eroding our democratic norms and boosting the voices of corporations and wealthy donors over the American people.

The For the People Act (HR 1) is a once-in-a-generation package of proven reforms that would:

  • Expand and protect voting rights and access to the ballot;
  • Put ordinary Americans ahead of Big Money donors;
  • End gerrymandering so that electoral districts are fairly drawn;
  • Clean up government and hold elected officials to the highest ethical standards.

The American people are tired of a government that serves only the wealthy and corporate interests. We demand a democracy that works for all of us.

Add your name today – tell Congress to pass the For the People Act as a first order of business in the new administration.

Together, we can build the support we need to build a democracy that truly represents the American people. Read more about HR 1 from the Brennan Center here
