S1 Virtual Town Hall with Majority Leader Chuck Schumer

June 16 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for a massive virtual town hall and musical celebration with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Attorney General Letitia James, Congressman Mondaire Jones, and Congressman Jamaal Bowman. We’ll hear the latest update on the status of the bill, get answers on how the bill impacts you, and talk about its connections to the civil rights movement. By joining this event, you are helping us combat mass voter suppression and strengthen our democracy!

The For the People Act (HR1/S1) is the most critical voting rights legislation of our lifetime, and its fate will be determined in the next two months. The bill seeks to prevent partisan gerrymandering, strengthen the right to vote, lessen the influence of big money in our politics, and restore ethical norms. It’s a desperately needed response to decades of voter suppression (including the legislative efforts in many states right now) and other antidemocratic assaults, like the Jan. 6 Capitol uprising.

Live Spanish Interpretation, English closed captioning, and ASL interpretation available.
