Take the next step: Call Senator Schumer
Tell him to keep small donor matching in the Freedom to Vote Act
What Should I Say?
Hi, this is [YOUR FULL NAME] calling from [YOUR LOCATION].
I want to thank Senator Schumer for his strong support of legislation to protect and expand our democracy.
I’d also like to ask him to keep public campaign financing in the legislation so that elected officials are responsive to individual voters, not just big donors.
Other things you can say:
- He should pass the bill without stripping out public financing of elections or any other parts of the bill that reduce the influence of big money in our nation’s elections.
- Small donor matching is the best solution available to reduce the influence of big money in politics.
- Let him know why it is important for you that candidates raise small donations from many people instead of big money from wealthy individuals and special interests.
