Message from LWV President Chris Carson: “Last month, voters sent a clear message across the country that they are ready for bold, comprehensive democracy reforms. Now the League is working with a broad coalition of over 100 organizations to draft and shape HR1, a policy reform package that will include key democracy provisions. HR1 will modernize our election system, reform redistricting, and restore the Voting Rights Act. And we also need to rebalance our system so that Big Money doesn’t set Washington’s agenda or decide who gets a seat at the table.

It will take all of us, working together, to speak out and demand change. Today, in fact, activists across the country are dropping by Congressional offices in support of democracy reforms. This is the first step, and the incoming Congress gives us an opportunity to advance this solution and build momentum for the future.
