Tell your Senators: Abolish the filibuster!

Throughout its history, the filibuster has been used as a tool to block civil rights legislation – most notably, an anti-lynching bill which still hasn’t been passed. Its ugly history is very clearly echoed in how the filibuster is being abused today, and it’s past time that it be abolished.

Without the filibuster, Senators can actually debate, vote on bills, and therefore are more likely to pass the policies that the majority of voters elected them to do – starting with the End Polluter Welfare Act, BUILD GREEN Act, and the Green New Deal for Public Housing Act.

The filibuster stands in the way of progress that people are demanding. As your constituent, I urge you to abolish the filibuster in order to stop voter suppression and protect our climate.
