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.
