Call Your Senators at 1-888-885-1748!
Call your Senators and urge them to support the For the People Act (S1). Let them know where you live and share any title (Reverend, Minister, etc.) or other connections in your community. It's powerful.
Tell them that you are a person of faith and that democracy reforms are a moral issue for you. Ask if you can depend on them to support the bill.
The For the People Act (HR1/S1) is a once-in-a-generation package of proven reforms that would:
- Expand and protect voting rights and access to the ballot;
- Put ordinary Americans ahead of Big Money donors;
- End gerrymandering so that electoral districts are fairly drawn;
- Hold elected officials to the highest ethical standards.
Faithful Democracy Virtual Lobby Visits
Spring 2021 is the critical window to pass reforms that protect our democracy. Direct constituent advocacy is one of the most effective ways of influencing lawmakers. They need to hear that the For the People Act is primed for passage, that it is a priority for their constituents, and that the faith community is engaged. Request a virtual meeting with your Senators and Representative in Congress to urge them to support the bill. We make it easy with our Virtual Lobby Visit Guidance.
Faithful Democracy has tools to support your advocacy. Use our HR1/S1 Talking Points as you talk with Hill staffers. Share our HR1/S1 Leave Behind with them by email and when requesting a meeting. It provides a framework for your conversations and lets them know you are part of a broader faith-based movement.
