No matter what stunts Republicans try to pull, we will not give in or give up.

Last week, the Texas House passed voter suppression bill SB 1, meaning the bill is likely only days away from being signed into law by Governor Abbott.

The passage of this bill reaffirms what many of us have known for a long time: Republican leaders in this state would rather dismantle our democracy than be held accountable for the more than 56,000 COVID deaths that have taken place on their watch, our crumbling power grid that killed over 700 Texans during the winter storm, and so many other examples of their failed leadership.

But thanks to people like you, Powered by People has been able to push back and build a movement focused on electing leaders that truly represent the people of Texas. Every single day, our volunteers are registering new voters and encouraging others in their communities to become Volunteer Deputy Registrars so that they can do the same. We know that registering voters is crucial to bringing more people into our democracy so that we can build a better, more responsive government, and we wouldn’t be able to do this work without the support of people like you.

So if you can, please consider chipping in $3 or more now to help us keep up the fight for voting rights in Texas and nationwide.

Meeting this threat to our democracy will require pushing back on all fronts — both here in Texas and in Washington, DC, where our federal lawmakers have the power to pass voting rights legislation that would override voter suppression laws like SB 1 in Texas and across the country.

The U.S. House of Representatives has passed two critical bills — the For the People Act and John Lewis Voting Rights Act — which have the potential to stop voter suppression and save our democracy. But currently, both bills face an uncertain future thanks to the Senate filibuster.

Powered by People has been doing the necessary work to bring thousands upon thousands of people together to take to the streets, rally in front of the state capitol, and keep the pressure up on President Biden to do everything in his power to reform the filibuster to allow voting rights legislation to pass. We will only be able to get this done if we bring enough people together to call on President Biden to take action.

Your support allows Powered by People to continue fighting for our democracy on all fronts. Please, donate $3 or more to support our work to register new voters, fight against voter suppression, and protect our democracy.

Thank you for your support,

Kate Roberts
