From the Indivisible.org Jan 3 Day of Action explainer and toolkit:
“We expect the first major legislative effort in a Democratically-controlled House to be a democracy reform effort (H.R. 1). This legislation is expected to strengthen everyone’s right to vote and to have their vote count, to stem the tide of big money in politics, and to root out corruption at all levels of government—including the White House. The election of Donald Trump (and the first two years of his administration) has brought into sharp focus the importance of preserving and protecting our democracy against blatant attempts to erode it. While Trump and his GOP enablers suppress the vote, profit off of corruption and attack essential democratic norms, Democrats now have an opportunity to change course. They must prioritize undoing that damage, and creating institutions in which we are all represented, included, and protected.
It is critical that we are loud, coordinated and powerful on January 3rd to make sure that this democracy package is as progressive as possible.”
