Demand Senator Sinema Save Democracy

UPDATE: It’s now or never. Republicans have once again blocked the For the People Act. We need Senator Sinema to stand up for the people of Arizona and our democracy by doing whatever it takes to pass the For the People Act -- including fixing the filibuster and ending recess early if necessary. It’s up to Senator Sinema to do the right thing and save our democracy.

Republicans in the state legislature in Arizona have introduced more voter suppression bills than anywhere else in the country: 19 to be exact. Some of these anti-Democratic proposals include limiting or eliminating no-excuse absentee ballots, making it harder to obtain an absentee ballot, imposing stricter ID requirements, and even giving the legislature the right to pick presidential electors despite election results and the will of the people. It’s a crisis.

A federal bill in the U.S. Senate — S.1, or the For the People Act — would fight back against these state-level attacks on our democracy by limiting the influence of big money in politics, making voting easier and more secure, ending partisan gerrymandering, and would give the public more information about who is lobbying our government. The For the People Act is popular, too — 67% of all Americans support it.

Unfortunately, Senator Sinema is standing in the way of its passage. While Senator Sinema is a supporter of the bill, she is not a supporter of eliminating the filibuster, an outdated Senate rule that requires 60 votes to ensure a bill’s passage. The For the People Act has no path to 60 votes in the Senate because of Republican obstructionism, so as long as the legislative filibuster remains in place — a procedural hurdle that’s not in the Constitution and that has been used to stop Civil Rights legislation — we have no hope for passage. 

While Senator Sinema continues to double down on her opposition to eliminating the filibuster and passing the For the People Act, our democracy is at risk. We need every Arizonan to call her office and tell her she has a choice: stand with Mitch McConnell on the filibuster or stand with Arizonans and pass S.1 and eliminate the filibuster to get it done.

Demand Senator Sinema stand with Arizonans to save democracy.

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I'm a constituent of Senator Sinema's calling from [ZIPCODE]. I’m calling you today because Senator Sinema is standing in the way of the passage of the For the People Act. While Senator Sinema is a supporter of the bill, she is not a supporter of eliminating the filibuster, an outdated Senate rule that requires 60 votes to ensure a bill’s passage.

The For the People Act has no path to 60 votes in the Senate because of Republican obstructionism so long as the legislative filibuster remains in place. In fact, they’ve already blocked it twice.While Senator Sinema continues to double down on her opposition to eliminating the filibuster and passing the For the People Act, our democracy is at risk. She has a choice: stand with Mitch McConnell and the filibuster or stand with Arizonans to save our democracy. I'm calling today to ask her to pick the latter.
