    Political Power Hour

    Politics is not a spectator sport! Join us every Wednesday as we join together to take political action to help pass the Biden agenda.

    Our current project is making calls with Common Cause to constituents of key US Senators and patching them through to their Senators' voicemail to urge them to publicly commit to ENDING THE FILIBUSTER and PROTECTING OUR DEMOCRACY by passing the For the People Act now.

    The For The People Act (HR1/S1) will only pass if people like you and me are willing to take action. Join us to make calls to activists in key states and help pass this groundbreaking democracy bill, which would

    • Expand the right to vote. The For the People Act would abolish outdated voter registration deadlines and enact online voter registration and automatic voter registration to make voting easier and our voter rolls more accurate and secure. The bill would stop some voter suppression tactics like voter purges and interference with voter registration.
    • End partisan gerrymandering. Voters should select their politicians and not the other way around. That's why the For the People Act institutes independent redistricting commissions.
    • Stop Big Money from calling the shots in our politics. Congresspeople spend some 60% of their time dialing big donors asking for money. By enacting a system of small dollar elections, whereby a $27 contribution would be matched to become $189, politicians can get off the dialer and talk to constituents, and more women, people of color, and new candidates without connections to donors would be empowered to run for office.
    • Hold elected officials (including the executive branch and president) to high ethical standards. Stop regulators from profiting from the very industries they regulate. Require tax return disclosure.

    We'll give you all the tools and training you need to call voters in our target states -- asking them to contact their lawmakers who will make the difference between success and failure.

    Can't make it but still want to be engaged? First, call Congress. You can call Congress for free from France at 07 555 3 6446 ("Bark at Congress: 07 555 DOGGO") — this connects callers automatically to the US Capitol Switchboard, where you follow the prompts to be connected to your House Rep or Senators. Need a script? Check out 5 Calls, where you can find topical scripts with concrete demands for your legislators on any issue you care about.

    Second, reach out to Max Dunitz to get connected with activities from past Power Hour actions, or other volunteer activities like postcarding, phonebanking, textbanking, data work, etc.
