Our elections are broken, Congress is stymied by partisan gridlock, and attacks on the foundation of democracy have been chipping away at the public's trust in our most sacred institutions. If there has ever been a time for sweeping anti-corruption reform, it's right now.
The Senate has announced that its first piece of legislation will be the For the People Act — the most comprehensive anti-corruption reform since Watergate. As part of our national campaign to Put Democracy First, we're connecting RepresentUs members across the country to Congress, to demand that they pass the For the People Act.
We're calling RepresentUs members and bringing them to action to fight corruption.
