Rally to Pass the For the People Act

Later this month the Senate plans to bring the For the People Act (S.1) to the floor for a vote, a transformative piece of legislation that can protect voting rights, end gerrymandering, and push back against the influence of big money in politics.


DC Vote and other groups are rallying on Wednesday, June 9th from 10am to 12pm at the Supreme Court (across from the Capitol) in support of S.1, and calling on Mitch McConnell and others in Congress to stop their obstruction of this vitally important bill to save our democracy.

  • Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)

  • Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN)

  • Senator Alex Padilla (D-CA)

  • Senator Raphael Warnock (D-GA)

  • Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO)

  • Senator Bob Casey (D-PA)

  • Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)
