Indivisible National Updates
Indivisible National has been working on a special project for a few weeks - a Midwest Democracy Reform series! We'll hear from guest speakers, musicians, and then write Letters to the Editor together so we can get media attention about why we need to act with urgency and get our democracy back on track.
With rampant voter suppression targeting voters of color, immigrants, and poor communities across the country, enshrining and expanding the right to participate in our democracy has become more and more urgent. Congress must pass H.R. 4 (the John Lewis Voting Rights Act).
D.C. has a population of almost 700,000 (more than Wyoming or Vermont), and it represents an increasingly diversifying electorate nationwide (if D.C. were a state, it’d be the only majority-minority state in the country). None of those people have voting representation in the House or Senate. The way the Senate was designed caters to the shrinking conservative base, and it’s time to expand representation to reflect the true needs of the people.
