End the Filibuster – For the Planet, For our Lives

If you agree with us that climate change has become an existential threat, especially to the most vulnerable communities among us worldwide, then the most impactful action you can take is to tell Congress and President Biden to end the “filibuster.”

The filibuster is the Senate rule that requires 60 votes (of 100 Senators) to pass legislation. Republicans use it to block progress on health care, minimum wages, environmental protection, and so much more, but they repealed the rule during the Trump administration to jam through anti-environmental appointments to the Supreme Court and to stack lower courts with right-wingers who have consistently favored big corporate polluters. Tell the Senate to abolish the filibuster rule now for ALL of its votes and allow democracy – – a simple majority – – to pass important legislation, as happens today in the House of Representatives and almost every local and state government.

Take action today by signing the petition below and have your voice heard. We will keep you posted on our progress after we deliver this message to key members of Congress and the White House. Thank you in advance for your participation and for your commitment to create a clean, safe and healthy environment for all.

End the Filibuster! For our Planet for our Lives!

To: U.S. Senate and President Biden,

If you agree that climate change has become an existential threat, especially to the most vulnerable communities among us worldwide, then the most impactful action you can take is for you to end the “filibuster.”

The filibuster Senate rule that requires 60 votes (of 100 Senators) to pass legislation is undemocratic and dangerous. As you are aware, a small number of Senators use it to block progress on health care, minimum wages, environmental protection, and so much more, in spite of the fact that these bills are supported by the majority of Americans. The American people are urging you as our leadership to abolish the filibuster rule now for ALL of its votes and allow democracy - - a simple majority - - to pass important legislation, as happens today in the House of Representatives and almost every local and state government.

I urge you to take action on this issue and prioritize reform so we can enable the will of the people and issues that matter to the public move forward.
