What's On Our Mind

Several anti-choice groups have launched a $5 million campaign to defeat a bill dealing with voting rights. They have a clear interest in keeping people from voting.

For the People Act, H.R. 1, is a historic voting rights, anti-corruption, ethics, and clean elections bill.

Week in Review 1-15-2021

A personal reflection by Hollis Wein, JAC Communications/Research Director

It was 1988. I had just arrived back home in Washington, D.C. after my first presidential campaign, the losing campaign of Michael Dukakis. My colleagues and I poured our heart and soul into that campaign. We travelled the country, slept on floors, and knocked on doors.

It was a crushing defeat, but we were energized by the opportunity to effect change, to see America up close and personal, and to play a part in our great democratic process.
