The Filibuster Has to Go

We cannot tackle the climate crisis, fight for racial justice, or protect the freedom to vote if we let tools used to uphold white supremacy get in the way, including the Jim Crow filibuster.

The filibuster is still used to deepen racial inequality. Republicans represent 40 million fewer voters than Democrats, and their share of the electorate is disproportionately white. Yet under current rules, they can block the agenda that a diverse group of 80 million Americans voted for President Biden to enact, which included measures to address the climate crisis, racial injustice and racist attacks on voting rights.

Send a message to your senators today and demand they get rid of the filibuster which stands in the way of so much progress.
