S.1 Petition Delivery/Pep Rally/Press Event
Time & Location
About the Event
Right now in states all across the country, voting rights are under attack. That’s why federal reform to protect access to the ballot box is so critically important.
Later this month the Senate plans to bring S.1 the For the People Act 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.
That’s why on Wednesday, June 9th from 10am-12pm we’ll be rallying 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.
We’ll be joined by members of Congress including Senators Warren, Warnock, and Klobuchar, movement and coalition leaders, activists, and members of the media. In addition signs and speeches, we’ll be delivering hundreds of thousands of petition signatures of concerned Americans who support the For the People Act. There will also be a number of creative visuals that we’ll be using for photo ops to share across social media, including an oversized 50 foot scroll featuring some of the petition signers in support of S.1.
