Sign the Petition to

U.S. House of Representatives

​We the People overwhelmingly demanded change through our votes last fall. We want a government that works for all of us -- that gives us all a say and puts our needs ahead of special interests.

Now, it’s up to Congress to take action. We want our elected officials to support the For the People Act (H.R. 1) and make sure it's a bold, comprehensive package of democracy reforms including: independent redistricting commissions, citizen-funded elections, Automatic Voter Registration, and more.

Signed,

We need a democracy where voters are protected from discrimination and can make themselves heard at the ballot box. A democracy where electoral districts are drawn fairly so that every voter's ballot is worth the same. And a democracy where ordinary Americans -- more women, people of color, and working people -- can run for office without relying on special interest Big Money.

We can make it happen with the For the People Act (H.R. 1), which the House of Representatives is voting on this week. This groundbreaking bill is the strongest package of democracy reforms in decades, implementing proven solutions to make our government more open, honest, and accountable.

But as we approach the finish line in the House, we can't let special interest groups and others who prefer the status quo stand in our way. 

Add your name to demand that the House makes a bold show of support for our democracy -- and passes the strongest possible version of the For The People Act.
