Mitch McConnell is single-handedly trying to kill democracy reform. We need your voice to stop him.

The For the People Act -- which the House of Representatives recently passed -- would majorly expand voting rights, put ordinary voters ahead of big money donors, end gerrymandering, and hold elected officials to the highest ethical standards. 

But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is mounting a one-man blockade against it -- and says the Senate won't even give the For the People Act a vote. 

He doesn't care that our democracy has been corrupted by big money donors and vote-suppressing politicians. He doesn't care that these nonpartisan solutions are already working in states across the country. And he doesn't care that Americans overwhelmingly demanded change with their votes last year. 

If we want to move real democracy reform, we need to break through Mitch McConnell's anti-democracy extremism. We need millions of Americans -- and elected officials in both parties -- to publicly condemn his attacks on our values and demand a vote on the For the People Act.
