Talking Points

  • There is nothing more fundamental in a democracy than the right to vote.

  • To save American democracy, we need democracy in the U.S. Senate.

  • We cannot afford to let voting rights fall victim to a procedural tool conceived in segregation.

  • The Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act would protect the right of every American to cast our vote and have that vote counted.

  • It is a desperately needed federal response to the attacks on voting rights happening in state legislatures all across the country.

  • And progress on reforming the filibuster would help open the door to the rest of our democracy and investment agenda: good union jobs, the right to organize, and more.

  • America’s unions won’t let an anti-worker minority block the will of America’s people—expressed decisively in the 2020 elections and in recent polling.

  • The choice is clear: Sideline the filibuster and pass voting rights at once.
