John Lewis on the For the People Act: Voting Rights


Those were Former Congressman John Lewis’s remarks advocating for the For the People Act (H.R. 1) just days before it passed the House. Almost two years ago.

That’s how long Mitch McConnell has refused to try and pass this bill — legislation that would reform redistricting and make our government work for the people, not the special interests.

With more pro-democracy senators now in Washington, there may be enough Senate votes to pass a new version of the bill Former Congressman Lewis spoke of — but it could come down to every last vote.
