BROOKLINE, MA – Pass the For the People Act and Protect Our Democracy

June 28 @ 9:00 am - 8:00 pm EDT

The For the People Act (H.R.1/S.1) will guarantee every citizen’s right to vote, end gerrymandering, improve campaign finance laws and provide essential ethics reforms. This is critical to preserving democracy, but we are going to have to push it through the Senate. Senator Angus King has signed on to the Act – but to pass it will require eliminating the filibuster. We need him to publicly advocate for eliminating the filibuster. Senator Susan Collins has not signed on as a supporter of the bill.

Write postcards developed with Common Cause. We are asking Maine activists to contact Sen. King to thank him for his co-sponsorship and asking him to help get the bill approved by the Senate. We are calling Sen. Collins to urge her to support S.1 to preserve access to the ballot.

Postcards will be easy to fill out: they only require a short, handwritten message and placement of an address label and stamp on the card.

HOW THE CAMPAIGN WORKS
Each kit contains 50 postcards, stamps and pre-printed address labels
The cost per kit is $24
Contactless pickup in Brookline
Payment is by check or Venmo only
Postcards should be mailed within one week.
Thank you for considering this campaign, and for being there for our democracy!
