Attacking the right to vote

We know how to do elections right in Oregon; our all vote-by-mail system is safe and fair and has worked well for decades. But across the country, states are passing voting restrictions that make it harder, rather than easier, to cast a ballot.

The House has passed HR 1, the For the People Act, twice now. This comprehensive piece of legislation expands voting rights, exposes dark money, and strengthens ethics rules, all important for our representative democracy.

But unfortunately, Republicans used the filibuster to block the bill in the Senate. Not even one Republican Senator voted to move the bill forward for debate. They seem determined to stop progressive legislation at every turn and instead are looking for ways to make it harder for people to vote.

We know that Republicans want to take control of the House in 2022. With so much at stake, we're going to need to do everything we can next November to protect the progress we've made. We can't let them undermine the work we've done for families and children, for the environment, and for the economy.

That's why I'm asking for your grassroots support before the end-of-quarter fundraising deadline on June 30. With razor thin margins in the House and Senate, we have to hit the ground running.

We've set an online grassroots goal to raise $10,000 before the end of June and our end-of-quarter fundraising deadline.

Please chip in $3 today. I'm counting on you to help us stand up for democracy and hold our majority in 2022.
