Call to Action: Pass the COVID Relief Plan & the For The People Act


Your Action:


Contact your U.S. Senators at (202) 224-3121 and call for their support in passing the

  • Covid Relief package

  • For The People Act


Background:

Two essential pieces of legislation are awaiting action in the Senate.

The first is the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, the $1.9 trillion COVID relief package that includes direct payments to Americans, expands unemployment, provides aid to states and local communities, supports vaccine distribution, and assistance for schools, food, and rent. Americans desperately need this aid. The rescue plan has the support of the majority of Americans and already passed in the House of Representatives. Now, it’s up to the Senate.

The second is the For The People Act, landmark legislation covering voting rights, government ethics, and campaign finance reform. It puts power in the hands of the people by limiting the influence of wealthy donors, increasing transparency, ensuring access to the ballot box, and creating a more fair process for congressional redistricting.

Both bills have the support of the majority of Americans and are critically needed. The Senate must take action and support the will of the People.

Script:


Hello [SEN]. My name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent [ZIP CODE].


I’m calling today about two bills: the American Rescue Plan Act and the For The People Act. Americans are struggling and desperately need the aid this relief package provides. And the For The People Act addresses critical flaws in our political process and will strengthen our democracy. We need both.


Everyday Americans, Republican and Democrat alike, overwhelmingly support both of these critically important pieces of legislation. I urge you to honor the will of your constituents and support these bills. Thank you.
