Support the For the People Act
Support the For the People Act

From the League of Women Voters National Website:


"The For the People Act is the democracy reform bill the American people want and deserve. This legislation will put power back into the hands of American voters by making voting easier and more accessible and by modernizing future elections. Over the last two years, we saw it pass the House or Representatives, but get stalled at the Senate. With the start of the 117th Congress it is imperative that the For the People Act once more become a top priority. The For the People Act addresses some of the most pressing issues facing our democracy because it will:


  • Restore the Voting Rights Act
  • Modernize our voter registration system
  • Update the public financing of elections through small donor matching funds
  • Curb partisan gerrymandering, and
  • Make campaign contributions more transparent.


Contact your Representative TODAY through the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and tell them to pass the For The People Act. Put control of our government back where it belongs—into the hands of the people.


In order to address your message to the appropriate recipient, we need to identify where you are."

Stand Up for D.C. Statehood
Stand Up for D.C. Statehood

From the League of Women Voters National Website:


"More than 700,000 residents live in DC, which is more than that of Wyoming and Vermont, yet its residents still lack voting members in the U.S. House and Senate. Without these voting members, residents of DC are denied a voice in Congress to defend them from attacks on their own locally passed laws and citizen backed initiatives.


Residents in DC deserve full representation in Congress. Sign the petition to support DC statehood today!"


To sign the petition, follow the link to LWV National's website below.

Act to Prevent Gun Violence
Act to Prevent Gun Violence

For far too long, Congress has been apathetic to the gun violence that plagues our nation. Though we’re not even halfway through 2021, our country has already experienced over 147 mass shootings. The senseless shootings in Atlanta, Boulder, and Indianapolis, are just a few of the many tragedies that we've been forced to grapple with.


The Biden Administration has taken executive action to help curb our gun violence epidemic, but these reforms can only do so much, and executive authority can only go so far. Now is the time for Congress to step up and pass common-sense gun violence prevention reforms, such as universal background checks, closing the gun show loophole, and banning assault weapons.


The House of Representatives has already passed HR 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act, which is the first step in transforming gun safety laws in our country. This legislation now sits before the Senate.


Tell your senators they must act now and pass the Bipartisan Background Checks Act and save Americans from the terror of gun violence.
