WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today FreedomWorks wraps up “We the People” week, a campaign to ramp up opposition to the Left’s so-called “For the People Act” (H.R. 1/S.1), further educate voters on the dangers of the bill, and urge lawmakers to reject the bill in the Senate.
Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:
“This past week has been about dialing up our efforts against H.R. 1/S.1, shining a spotlight on the legislation’s many faults, and helping people see through the Left’s lies and false narrative that H.R. 1 will do any good for our country’s electoral system. Americans deserve real solutions that strengthen election integrity, not undermine it. H.R.1 is a clear threat to free and fair elections in this country that would only make the chaos and uncertainty of 2020’s election the norm.
“We hope that this week has been instructive in reminding lawmakers and voters what is at stake if this bill becomes law. We thank our activists for their hard work and dedication to the cause this week and the past couple of months. We will continue to support them in their fight for free and fair elections.”

Tuesday, April 6: “Make Maryland D.C. Again” Campaign
FreedomWorks believes that the people of D.C. should have equal representation in Congress. But rather than give the district statehood, which is unconstitutional, the best path to guaranteeing representation for the residents of D.C. is to give D.C.’s neighborhoods back to Maryland but maintain the monuments and all other federal buildings as part of the District of Columbia.
