End Citizens United // Let America Vote Action Fund President Tiffany Muller released the following statement on President Joe Biden’s strong support of the For the People Act (H.R. 1/S. 1) and the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act at tonight’s Address to a Joint Session of Congress:

“In reiterating his support for the For the People Act and the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Act at tonight’s Joint Address, President Biden is reflecting the view of a vast majority of Americans who want to root out corruption in Washington, end partisan gerrymandering, protect access to the ballot box, and make our elected officials work for the people rather than corporate special interest groups.

“In this defining moment in our country’s history, we must come together to protect our democracy in the face of a dark money fueled assault on Americans’ right to vote. We applaud the Biden-Harris Administration and the Democratic-controlled House and Senate for prioritizing anti-corruption reforms, and we look forward to continuing to work with Congress and the Administration to quickly pass and sign the For the People Act and the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Act into law.”
