In November, Minnesotans showed up at the polls to participate in our democracy and to protect it — protect it from corporate interests and from those looking to silence certain voices. Since then, we’ve seen a number of major victories for our communities, including passage of the 100% Clean Energy Bill and establishing driver’s licenses for all. Now it’s time to add democracy to the list of big wins!
The Democracy for the People Act (HF3/SF3) includes vital policies, such as automatic voter registration, pre-registration of 16- and 17-year-olds, and prohibiting foreign influenced corporations from financing our elections. These policies will set the foundation and strengthen our voices in all future elections and legislative sessions, so taking action now is critical.
It only takes a minute to send an e-mail to your Senator and Representative and let them know that you want them to act soon and pass the Democracy for the People Act. One click and you can let them know it’s time to protect and expand our democracy now.
