There are few people in the country right now who symbolize the fight for voting rights more than Stacey Abrams. And so when she wants our help, I’m inclined to pitch in.
Abrams has launched “Hot Call Summer” with her organization, Fair Fight, and they are putting their weight behind getting the For The People Act passed in the Senate. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has promised a vote on the bill this month, which looks like it’ll happen next week.
In anticipation of that vote, Abrams wants to turn up the pressure on Senators. Here’s what she said in an email I received:
We can’t wait any longer for Congress to protect Americans’ freedom to vote, which is why we need Senators to pass the For The People Act (HR1/S1). With voting rights under attack in 48 out of 50 state legislatures across the country, the moment has never been more urgent, and it will take all of us to ensure that Congress passes the voting rights protections our country and democracy desperately need. No matter where you live—blue state, red state, or somewhere in between—we need to make sure that EVERY U.S. Senator is hearing from their constituents about the urgent need to pass HR1/S1.
Today I’m launching Hot Call Summer— because in order to pass the For The People Act, we need your help to make sure our Senators know how important this legislation is to you.
Here’s what you can do right now:
- No matter where you live, no matter what your Senator has already said, I need you to call your US Senators every day in June to demand that Senators pass the For The People Act to protect our freedom to vote. Call 888-453-3211 to be connected to your Senators now – and don’t be afraid to call them daily to keep the pressure on.
- Join Fair Fight Action’s text bank days of action on June 11, 16, 17, 18, 21, 22 and 23 to ask voters in key states to call their Senators about the For The People Act. If you have not already attended Fair Fight’s text training on our new text platform, Impactive, sign up for a training here for everything you’ll need to join one of these text banks.
Sign up, call, and share with your networks — together, we can ensure that the For The People Act is passed, and that voters across the country have their freedom to vote protected from Republican attacks.
Thank you for all that you do,
Founder, Fair Fight Action
Will you join me in helping with this effort? First and foremost, let’s call our Senators every single day until the vote happens. Plus, if you can help with the text banking, that would be a bonus!!
Thanks you for taking action.
Please help spread the word about this important initiative! And then:
