FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Jan. 5, 2021
Systematic attempts this past year to delegitimize democratic practice frustrate the promise of democracy and underscore the immense importance of comprehensive democracy reforms. H.R. 1, the For the People Act, proposes the furthest-reaching political reforms since Watergate. It offers solutions to pressing problems in our democracy, such as expanding access to voting, leveling the campaign finance playing field, and strengthening congressional ethics standards. Its passage is crucial to safeguard America’s elections and democratic processes.
20/20 Vision is proud to back the House reintroduction of H.R. 1. Both the bill’s champions and co-sponsors (a majority of House members) have demonstrated the leadership urgently needed to craft this sweeping reform bill, and they deserve the support of progressives and anyone fed up with the obstruction and corruption that poison our politics and frustrate our people.
