Red State Residents: Tell President Biden to Be a Champion for Democracy

If you live in a red state, you know better than anyone that Senate Republicans have repeatedly used the filibuster this Congress to block significant structural democracy reforms from passage, despite the fact that they are in the minority in the Senate. We need President Biden to use his platform to champion democracy and call on Senate Democrats to fix the filibuster to pass the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.

The Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act are widely popular among both Democratic and Republican voters and would expand early voting, end partisan gerrymandering, reduce the influence of big money in politics, and more. This all comes as Republican state legislatures across the country are passing hundreds of sweeping voter suppression laws that all but assure GOP electoral victories for years to come. 

Historically, the filibuster has been used to uphold Jim Crow legislation and other racist voter suppression laws, so it’s no surprise to see it used again here to block comprehensive voting rights legislation. 

We cannot continue to let Republicans hold our democracy hostage. We must eliminate the filibuster to save our democracy. If you live in a red state, call the White House Comment Line and let President Biden know you want him to be a champion for democracy. We don’t have time to waste.

President Biden must use his platform to pass the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act

Hello, my name is [NAME] and I’m calling from [STATE] to ask President Biden to use his platform to be a champion for democracy. My senators refuse to take action on democracy, so I need Democrats from other states to act. President Biden must call on Senate Democrats to pass the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act by whatever means necessary -- including fixing the filibuster. We cannot let Republicans hold our democracy hostage.

Will President Biden commit to using his platform to call on Senate Democrats to pass the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act by any means necessary, including fixing the filibuster? There’s no time to waste.
