❗ THREAD ❗

This week marks the one year anniversary of the U.S. House passing #HR1 - the #ForThePeople Act. This landmark legislation is the biggest political reform package proposed in Congress since Watergate and would improve our democracy for ALL Americans.
The #ForThePeople Act deals with ethics, campaign finance, voting rights, and gerrymandering.

While Mitch McConnell & the @SenateGOP have refused to even bring the bill up for a hearing or vote, states across the country are already implementing many of the reforms in #HR1.
One of the key reforms in #HR1 is a new small donor-focused public campaign finance system that gives everyday people a bigger voice in politics and limits the power of special interests. These types of programs have passed & worked in states & localities across the country.

Happy 5th of July!

My #FridayMotivation is to remind all #Resisters how important STATE elections will be in 2019 & 2020.

In 2019, 4 sates have state legislative elections: LA, MS, VA, & NJ;

Three states have elections for Governor: LA, MS, & KY.

The composition of state governments is vital. In many states, state legislatures will redraw voting districts after the 2020 census. Governor’s will need to sign off on those districts.
State governments also pass legislation that will either protect or restrict our rights. They are our first line of defense against Trumpism. It is vital to GOTV and support Democratic candidates in these states in 2019.

Elections twitter peeps have probably heard me make these points before. You may agree with some, disagree with others. Either way, respond! Above all, I want to spark dialogue. I saw in BC how, when we don't get ahead of the curve, we end up behind it.
