Earlier today, CWA members, retirees and, allies gathered for a town hall to discuss the urgency of passing the For the People Act. CWA President Chris Shelton and Secretary-Treasurer Sara Steffens hosted the event, and Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) and voting rights activist Stacey Abrams joined the group with inspirational messages about the importance of protecting and expanding voting rights.
The For the People Act would loosen the hold corporate money has on our country so that we can build worker power. The bipartisan bill, which has been given the designation H.R. 1 as a sign of its importance, has passed the House of Representatives, and has moved to the Senate for consideration.
After the public town hall, CWA activists held a virtual text bank to ask CWA members to contact their Senators to urge them to support the bill.
