SOMERVILLE, MA – Postcards to Pass the For the People Act and Protect Our Democracy

July 13 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 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. Some senators have signed on to the Act – but to pass it will require eliminating the filibuster. We need them to publicly advocate for eliminating the filibuster.

Write postcards developed with Common Cause. We are asking constituents of moderate Senators to thank them for their support for the For the People bill and asking them to help get the bill approved by the Senate.

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 $25
Contactless pickup in West Somerville (near Davis and Teele Square). Pick up Tuesday evening, July 13, or anytime Wednesday, July 14.
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!
