.@BrianFrosh, I wholeheartedly agree.
@HouseDemocrats are moving swiftly to pass #HR1 -- #ForThePeople.
We witnessed the dangerous result of lies about our voting process. Today I led 21 AGs in support of H.R. 1 to halt efforts to suppress votes, protect elections from foreign interference, & ensure elected officials are unable to profit from their office. https://bit.ly/2MmZKgT
Last week, I urged President Biden to take this important step. (See here: http://bit.ly/Sarbanes-Fire-DeJoy.) https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2021/02/24/dejoy-hearing-usps-live-updates/#link-6CTKIUPGPZCRLKIPBL2ZQAFVO4
✅ Post your meeting schedule
✅ Hold town halls
✅ Pass #HR1
🚫 Corporate PAC money
🚫 Dark money
That's how we can restore transparency & accountability in Congress.
Great to join @SenatorBennet, @Tiffany_Muller, & Owen Perkins for a talk about strengthening our democracy.
#HR1 #S1 #ForThePeople
.@staceyabrams on @CNN: “The only solution that I see right now…is that we pass #HR1, the #ForThePeople Act, which will provide a floor for democracy in America. That will say that no longer will geography determine the quality of your citizenship.”
Telework is here to stay. The benefits of it – in terms of cost savings, productivity, stress reduction, work-life balance – all speak for themselves.
I will continue to work to expand telework opportunities for America's civil servants. https://sarbanes.house.gov/media-center/press-releases/sarbanes-urges-expansion-federal-employee-telework-programs-after-covid
For too long, voter suppression has been a shameful reality in our country.
If passed in Congress, #HR1—the #ForThePeopleAct—would be the most significant democratic reforms in over half a century.
Here's how we can help strengthen our democracy: http://weall.vote/forthepeople
This week my friend John Lewis would have been 81. John knew that the best way to defend democracy was to strengthen it. Next week, the House plans to vote on the “For the People Act.”
John fought for our democracy his entire life. Next week, we honor him and keep fighting.
