PROVIDE CONGRESSIONAL OVERSIGHT
PROMOTE VOTING RIGHTS
The importance of electing a branch of Congress that is for the people is on full display.
Just this week the House:
- Protected our democracy by questioning Michael Cohen in its Oversight Committee
- Passed not one, but two bills to prevent gun violence
- Passed a resolution rejecting Trump’s (fake) national emergency
We need Congress to continue on this path. All members of Congress, especially Trump’s GOP cult, must push past partisan politics to provide meaningful oversight of this administration and stop trying to hold onto power with policies that hurt WE THE PEOPLE.
Congress must do more. NOW! We want them to:
- Hold meaningful oversight hearings in their committees.
- Pass the For the People Act (HR1), an anti-corruption, voting rights protecting, pro-democracy bill that will help restore our faith in government.
As House Oversight Committee Chairman Cummings said:
“In 2019 what did we do to make sure we kept our democracy intact? Did we stand on the sidelines and say nothing?”
Don’t stand on the sidelines. Call your Member of Congress today.
Protect Our Democracy!
Expand Voting Rights!
