#justiceOPportunity Thursday—April 8, 2021

It’s #justiceOPportunity Thursday and we hope you will join us TODAY for a National Call-in Day regarding the For the People Act (S.1). When the Senate returns from recess on April 12, one of the first orders of business will be the For the People Act (S.1)—a once-in-a-generation transformative democracy reform bill. The past months have only highlighted the urgency of reforms to repair our democracy, protect voting rights and begin restoring faith in our democratic systems.

Join the National Call-In Day by calling your Senators, Dianne Feinstein and Alex Padilla, at 202-224-3121 to urge them to support the passage of S.1.

The For the People Act would

  1. protect and strengthen the sacred right to vote,
  2. end the dominance of big money in politics,
  3. end partisan gerrymandering, and
  4. implement anti-corruption, pro-ethics measures to clean up government.

Politicians and special interest groups who want to preserve a broken status quo are attacking the reforms, but their critiques do not stand up to reality. Contact your Senators today and urge them to support this bold, comprehensive response which is critical to strengthen and protect our democracy. You might say something like:

I’m (Your Name) from (You City). I am a constituent and a person of faith. I’m calling to ask the Senator to support S. 1, the For the People Act. The common-sense reforms in this legislation are deeply popular across the political spectrum and have been enacted into law in many states and localities. People of faith see fair representation, voting rights, and accountability for elected leaders as moral issues of utmost importance. My faith tells me that a fair and inclusive democracy is about dignity for all and passing the For the People Act is the first step to get us there. Can I count on Sen. ___ support for this comprehensive reform legislation which responds to the comprehensive problems undermining our democracy

This is a critical moment for the future of our democracy so please share this important call to action with others.
