S1 Phone bank to WV voters every Thursday, 6-8pm
As you probably know, Sen. Manchin declared that he won’t support S1, nor efforts to ‘weaken’ the filibuster. If you didn’t see my recent email with Indivisible’s responses, you can see it here.
The bottom line is that Manchin doesn’t get a free pass just because he says he wants Senate bipartisanship (the bill already has citizen – including a majority of WV citizen) bipartisan support. It’s now on him to find those 10 Senate Republicans for S1 or S4, or anything. And if Schumer does his part, by continuing to bring important bills to the floor, the entire country will see very clearly that the GOP has no intention of working across the aisle.
And in the meantime, we need to keep educating voters about S1, and helping West Virginians maintain their in-state pressure on Manchin. He’s changed his mind in the past – let’s make it that much easier for him to change again – and do the right thing!
So, join Indivisible Northampton and Common Cause as we phone bank every Thursday, 6 – 8pm to help get S1 – the For the People Act over the finish line and passed into law!
S1 is the most transformative democracy strengthening legislation in decades, and is crucial to stopping the multitude of GOP efforts to suppress and even overturn voting!
We’re calling voters in WVa and connecting them to Sen.Manchin to urge him to support (S1)! We’ll have info, specific to WVa voters, to help us be as effective as possible!
Training is always provided, so everyone is welcome!
Common Cause is holding these phone banks all the time – but if you want to join Indivisible Northampton – Beth and Peggy will be leading the banks on Thursdays, 6 – 8pm!
