Support HR1 The For the People Act
The LWV of the US has taken a strong position in support of HR1, the For the People Act, and has encouraged all Leagues to participate in promoting its passage into law. Please see the League's strong statement of support below. Click this link to inform yourself about this critical act and its importance to our mission of defending democracy. Then, we hope you will be moved to click the links to the left and take one of more actions in its support.
“We need HR1 now more than ever. The 2020 election saw the largest voter participation in our country’s history. But since November, we have seen hundreds of restrictive voting bills introduced by state legislatures in more than 40 states around the country. These bills seek to limit the voices of voters, particularly Black and brown voters, who voted in record numbers last year. Now is the time to expand voter access, not restrict the constitutional right to vote. HR1 will protect voters and help to build a fairer and more inclusive democracy.
“We applaud the House for passing the For the People Act, and we urge the Senate to do the same.”
Virginia Kase, League of Women Voters of the United States CEO
