Democrats have the power to abolish the filibuster, but only if they act together.

There is no wiggle room,

because if a single Democrat opposes,
then the filibuster will remain.

All senators need to hear from us, because it is clear the status quo is not working. Those who defend the filibuster over protecting our voting rights need to know where we stand and that we’ll hold them accountable. Senators who are ready to fight for our freedom to vote need to know we have their back and are expecting them to lead.

What is a filibuster?

The filibuster is a Senate loophole that requires a bill to get 60 senators’ support before it can even come up for a vote. Throughout history, it’s been used to block civil rights—and in recent years, Republicans have abused it to an extreme to block all debate and progress.

Watch the one-minute episode of “Wait Wait …. That’s Racist!” for a history of the filibuster.
