Right now, historic legislation hangs in the balance in the Senate. The filibuster threatens to stifle progress on workers' rights, voting rights and civil rights despite a majority of the U.S. population supporting these reforms. Without ending the filibuster, we'll never be able to move forward on issues of vital importance to working people.
After the holiday, please consider taking action to urge your senators to abolish the filibuster so important bills like the PRO Act, voting rights legislation and an infrastructure package that puts working people first can come to the Senate floor for a fair vote.
