In 2021, the democracy reform movement, including RepresentUs members, put its might behind passing an epic reform bill to fight back against voter suppression and political corruption. But in January 2022, Senate obstructionists derailed the For the People Act.  There are many questions to answer: What happened? What opportunities remain to pass democracy reform at the federal level? And what does this mean for state-based reforms? Join RepresentUs, policy experts, movement leaders, and members of Congress on to get answers to these questions and learn how you can be a part of what’s coming next. RSVP at
