Tell Congress: It’s Time for a Fair and Functioning Democracy

CWA Local 4320 Members,

Corporate CEOs and the wealthiest 1% have spent decades rigging the system to reduce our power. That has made it harder and harder to pass legislation that helps working people and makes a real difference in our lives.

The same corporate interests that fight us at the bargaining table are stacking the rules against us when it comes to political participation. They have put restrictions in place that make it harder for people to vote, flooded elections with money and weakened the rules that prevent elected officials from profiting from their public service.

It’s gone way too far and it’s time to do something about it. Click here to ask your member of Congress to support the For the People Act to ensure a fair and functioning democracy for us all.

Our country has a lot of issues to address, but we cannot win the changes we need until we bring balance to our democracy and make sure that everyone is included and represented–not just the wealthy few.

The new Congressional leadership promised to make reform a top priority. The For the People Act is the first major piece of legislation they are considering this year. The bill would:

  • Make it easier, not harder, to vote by restoring the Voting Rights Act, implementing national voter registration, expanding early voting and ending gerrymandering.
  • Get big money out of our democracy by regulating big money in politics like Super PACS, requiring all political organizations to disclose their donors, and building a campaign finance system to increase and multiply the power of small donors.
  • Ensure public officials work for the public interest by expanding conflict of interest law, strengthening oversight of lobbyists, and more.
  • If those sound like changes we need to make, contact your member of Congress today at https://actionnetwork.org/letters/tell-congress-its-time-for-a-fair-and-functioning-democracy.
  • In Unity,
  • Jay Walther
  • President CWA Local 4320
