Republicans have proposed at least 250 voting restriction laws at the state level, all over the country. Over 20 of these bills have been introduced in Arizona.

 

H.R. 1 / S. 1 is waiting to be passed in the Senate and it would protect our right to vote.

With all the crazy shenanigans going on here in the Arizona legislature and bills recently passed in Georgia, Texas, and Florida, it is clear we must pass federal laws for voter protection. H.R.1 has passed the House but S.1 will not pass the Senate unless we convince our Senators Sinema and Kelly to get on board and dump the racist, Jim Crow relic known as the Senate Filibuster.

The filibuster is an arcane procedural rule in the U.S. Senate that will prevent most of the popular legislation on Democrats’ agenda from ever being voted on. From protecting our right to vote, to immigration reform, to labor rights, to the climate crisis, the filibuster must go!
