There are real and immediate solutions that would reduce the corruption of big in politics and protect free and fair elections for all right now.
Americans from across the political spectrum want fundamental reforms to restore the people's voice in government. We have identified four reform bills that are already pending before Congress as exemplary actions that can be taken.
Pass The Voting Rights Advancement Act (H.R. 2867, S. 1659)
Restores the protections against voting discrimination that were struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court in its Shelby County v. Holder decision, and makes additional, critical updates to the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
Pass The Voter Empowerment Act (H.R. 12)
Modernizes voter registration, prevents deceptive practices that keep people from the ballot box, and ensures equal access to voting for all US citizens.
Pass The Democracy For All Amendment (H.J.Res. 22, S.J.Res. 5)
Effectively overturns the Citizens United US Supreme Court decision by allowing Congress to set limits on political spending and differentiate between corporations and natural persons when doing so.
Pass The Government By The People & Fair Elections Now Acts (H.R. 20 and S. 1538)
Encourages and amplifies small-dollar contributions from everyday Americans by multiplying small-dollar donations with 6:1 or 9:1 public matching funds. These funds are only available to candidates who refuse to take big money contributions.
