Press Release

Stand Up America Blasts Trump, GOP’s Disinformation Campaign Against For The People Act

WASHINGTON -

Following Donald Trump’s speech at CPAC this weekend, during which he repeatedly lied about the For the People Act (HR1/S1), Stand Up America Managing Director Christina Harvey issued the following statement:

“It should come as no surprise that Donald Trump would lie about a law that would make voting more accessible for millions of Americans, combat the corruption that ran rampant during his administration, and reduce the impact of white, wealthy, and well-connected men like him in our politics.

“This shameful disinformation campaign is nothing more than a desperate attempt by GOP leadership to stop this bill—which is supported by a majority of registered Republicans.

“Members of Congress should ignore these blatant falsehoods and vote this week to send the For the People Act to the Senate.”

Focused on grassroots advocacy to strengthen our democracy and oppose Trump’s corrupt agenda, Stand Up America has driven over 600,000 phone calls to Congress and mobilized tens of thousands of protestors across the country.
