Take Action to Support Democracy!
At the League, we are excited about the new session of Congress and we are proud to support a new piece of legislation–HR1: For the People Act– which stands to improve American elections by making our elections more free, fair, and accessible to all eligible Americans.
Welcome Representative Schrier to Washington, DC, with a call urging her to support HR1.

In November, voters sent a clear message across the country that they are ready for bold, comprehensive democracy reforms. Now, the League is working with a broad coalition of over 100 organizations to draft and shape HR1, a policy reform package that will include key democracy provisions:
- Expanding voter registration: Modernizing the registration process through the expansion of automatic voter registration and online voter registration.
- Implementing fair redistricting: It’s time to end gerrymandering once and for all so that voters select their elected officials – not the other way around.
- Outlawing voter purging: Prohibiting illegal voter roll purging will ensure that eligible voters will not find themselves wrongfully stripped of the right to vote.
- Restoring the VRA: Restoring the Voting Rights Act will strengthen our elections by cutting back the obstructive laws that have kept eligible voters from exercising their right at the ballot box.
