Call to Action: For the People Act

Kate Stewart  | Published on 6/22/2021

ACT NOW!


Raise your voice! 

Call Senator Kyrsten Sinema today!


Call Senator Sinema at 520-639-7080 and/or 202-224-3121
Tell her to protect your freedom to vote by supporting the For The People Act. 

Senator Sinema co-sponsored For the People Act. Now, you, the voter, must ask her to use her powerful position as an Arizona Senator to help make this bill a law. 
The For the People Act will put power in the hands of voters—not wealthy special interests who can buy influence—and establish uniform rules to protect and expand the right of American voters to securely vote and be fairly represented.


Postcard campaign

Local Leagues will be mailing 50,000 postcards to newly registered independent voters across the state, urging them to call Senator Sinema to pass the “For the People Act.”  Please contact 

Voterservice-registration@lwvtucson.com to help with this effort.



Mobilize Small Business owners to urge Sinema to pass the For the People Act.

A coalition of voting rights groups is gathering signatures for a letter to Senator Sinema 
to urge her to do everything possible to pass this critical voting rights bill. We believe that almost 200 small businesses have signed on already, and the plan is to present the letter during the upcoming Senate recess.

If you are a small business owner, please sign this letter, and please share with any AZ small business owners that you know and encourage them to do the same, 
  
 
The letter includes the following points:
  • Asks Senator Sinema to stand up for small businesses and do what’s necessary to pass the For the People Act, including eliminating the filibuster
  • Bills that restrict the freedom to vote hurt communities served by small businesses
  • The For the People Act would curb corporate influence on public policy and give small businesses more ability for their voices to be heard.
