Progressive Mariposa Joins Groups to Ramp Up
Pressure on Feinstein
On Monday, 21 June 2021, Progressive Mariposa joined over 100 Groups in California representing thousands of Senator Dianne Feinstein’s constituents to ask her to “stand up for democracy” and affirm that she will do everything in her power to help pass the For The People Act by “all means possible.”
“Feinstein has sparked progressive ire amid shifting stances on the legislative filibuster, which requires 60 votes for most legislation to pass the Senate. She also earned a new round of backlash earlier this month after she told Forbes that, “If democracy were in jeopardy, I would want to protect it. But I don’t see it being in jeopardy right now.”
The groups, in Monday’s letter, said that they were “dismayed that such a considered and thoughtful Senator as yourself could fail to perceive the danger of the current moment to our democracy and our country.” ”
