Weekly Action Checklist: November 5, 2021
52 weeks to Midterm Elections
The AoC Checklist features clear, well-researched actions for Americans who value democracy, equality, voting, and decency. We are a big tent for all people who want a kinder, flourishing nation.
If you only have 10 minutes, take our top three suggested actions:
- Contact your Senators: Urge them to pass the Freedom to Vote Act (S. 2747), which would make Election Day a federal holiday, set national standards for voting rights, and require disclosure of “dark money” political campaign contributions. [Source: Citizens for Ethics]
- Contact your Senators and House Rep: Urge them to pass S. 2702 and H.R. 5008 to protect the voting rights of American Indians and Alaska Natives. [Source: National Congress of American Indians]
- Contact your Senators: Urge them to support Indigenous women by passing S. 1275 and reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act with strong Tribal provisions. [Sources: National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center, NCAI]
