With 50 Democrats voting in support of moving the For The People Act forward, attention is focused on whether Senate Majority Leader Schumer can get this vital legislation passed. New Yorkers around the state, including here is Binghamton, are holding rallies to call upon Senate Majority Leader Schumer to use every tool at his disposal to pass democracy reform. Locally, the rally is being organized by Indivisible Binghamton, a local grassroots organization.
The For the People Act, if passed intact, would substantially strengthen our democracy by protecting the freedom to vote, particularly for Black and brown people who are, and always have been, the primary targets of deliberate barriers to vote. The legislation would also limit the influence of corporations and wealthy donors in electoral politics and amplify the voices of everyday people through a public financing system and an independent, bi-partisan redistricting process.
This event is part of a national campaign called Deadline for Democracy by the Indivisible Project and 70 coalition partners. Indivisible and Fair Elections have teamed up to hold similar rallies at Sen. Schumer’s 8 regional offices across the state.
