The League joined reform organizations in sending a letter to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to strongly urge the Commissioners to take no action regarding the FEC Enforcement Manual until the two nominees who have been appointed to serve on the Commission are confirmed and take office.

The League joined reform groups in sending a letter to the U.S. House of Representatives urging them to vote no on H.R. 2019, legislation that would repeal the presidential public financing system. H.R. 2019, the letter argues, would repeal an important anti-corruption campaign finance law which worked well for most of its existence and provided ordinary Americans with a critical role to play in financing presidential elections.

Use this letter to the editor template to bring attention to the Supreme Court's devastating decision in the Voting Rights Act case, Shelby County, Alabama v. Holder, and the need for Congress to act. Help educate your communities about the work that needs to be done to restore the VRA as we approach the legislation's 48th anniversary.

The League sent a letter to the U.S. House urging them to pass immigration reform and ensure that a path to citizenship is available to all who remain legally in the United States.
