How the Freedom to Vote Act Compares With its Predecessor, the For the People Act

October 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Common Cause on Freedom to Vote Act – Indivisible Northampton, Oct. 4th, 7pm

Curious – skeptical – hopeful  about this new ‘compromise’ voting rights bill, the Freedom to Vote Act?  Terrified about what will become of our democracy if it doesn’t pass?  Ready to learn how we can all pitch in to save our democracy?

Then join Indivisible Northampton on 
Monday, October 4th, 7 – 8pmEST
as we welcome 
Steve Spaulding, Senior Counsel on Public Policy and Government Affairs at Common Cause, and Sr. Advisor to CC’s President

Steve will discuss how the Freedom to Vote Act compares with its predecessor, the For the People Act, the politics of getting it passed, and what we, activists, can do to make sure it gets over the finish line – and in time for upcoming elections!  We’ll begin by letting you know what IN is up to, and how you can join in, and we’ll end with Q and A, so bring your questions!

Steve is an expert on Elections law, having served as Senior Advisor in the U.S. House to the Chair (Rep. Zoe Lofgren) of the committee overseeing federal elections. Steve was also Special Counsel to former FEC Chair and Commissioner Ann Ravel at the Federal Election Commission. Steve played a key role in getting HR1 (the For The People Act), as well as other pro democracy election reforms passed in the House. Steve has testified in Congress, authored papers and appeared in various media to share his wisdom about democracy. 

Join us to be informed and inspired together.
