Sign the Petition: Tell Mitch McConnell to put the Anti-corruption bill up for a vote in the Senate

With the help of activists like you, we were able to get a strong H.R. 1 passed through the House of Representatives last month -- a resolution that can reform our political system through elections, campaign finances, and transparency measures.

Now we need you again. H.R. 1 should be voted on in the Senate next, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is refusing to bring it up for a vote. Can you help us put the pressure on McConnell to do what’s right and allow the Senate to vote on this vital resolution?

Sign the petition: Mitch McConnell needs to put H.R. 1 up for a vote in the Senate.

H.R. 1 proposes a massive overhaul of political corruption including money-in-politics, voting rights, and ethics laws -- all to make our democracy fair and more inclusive, which is exactly what we need.(1)

We need a democracy where voters are protected from discrimination and can make themselves heard at the ballot box. A democracy where electoral districts are drawn fairly. A democracy where ordinary Americans -- including women, people of color, and working-class Americans -- can run for office without relying on special interest and corporate money, or worse, competing against corrupt politicians that sell out.

H.R. 1 provides solutions to these problems, and the next step to get it passed is a vote in the Senate. Mitch McConnell cannot continue to hold us back from getting the democracy we all deserve.

Ask Mitch McConnell to put a resolution to reform our political system up for a Senate vote.
