What is HR1? It’s the For the People Act, the boldest democratic reform since Watergate with the most expansive reform agenda in more than 50 years. It’s a once-in-a-generation democracy reform package to clean up our political system, expand and protect voting rights, end gerrymandering, and counter the power of big money in politics.
When HR1 is passed, we’ll see rapid progress on the issues we care about most like combating climate change, ensuring affordable healthcare for all, and fighting for racial justice. Read the complete text of the bill here. The House has re-introduced the bill and we hope it will come up for a vote soon.
Indivisible AVL is working with the national coalition, the Declaration for American Democracy, on this issue. They’re asking everyone to call their legislators and ask them to vote for HR1. Please call Representative Cawthorn on Monday, the 11th, and tell him to vote for HR1.
Example call script:
Hi, my name is _____________ and I live in ____________. I’m calling to urge Representative Cawthorn to vote in favor of HR1, the For The People Act. This bill would strengthen our democracy by getting big money out of politics, holding elected officials accountable for corruption, expanding and protecting voting rights, and creating a democracy that values the voices of all Americans. I hope Representative Cawthorn will do the right thing and vote in favor of the Act. Thank you.
Or, if you want to keep it short and sweet:
Hi, my name is _____________ and I live in ____________. I’m calling to urge Representative Cawthorn to vote in favor of HR1, the For The People Act. I hope he will do the right thing and vote in favor of it. Thank you.
