Fix the Senate

Tell Your Senators: Fix the Filibuster!

The clock is ticking on filibuster reform and we need the Senate to take action now.

Call your senators today and tell them to support Senate Resolution 4, introduced by Senators Merkley, Udall and Harkin. If we are going to truly address vital issues such as climate change, we need a Senate that works.

Calling your senators is easy and will make a difference.

1. Look up your senators' phone numbers:

Your state:

2. Dial the number and you'll be connected to a staffer in your senator's office.

  • We strongly encourage you to cosponsor Senate Resolution 4, introduced by Senators Merkley, Udall and Harkin.
  • We believe that the common sense reforms in this package, especially ending the "silent filibuster" will end the obstructionism that has been ramped in the U.S. Senate.
  • Our nation is facing unparalleled challenges and cannot afford another two years of inaction fostered by broken legislative institutions. In the last two years, important Senate efforts including the American Jobs Act, the Buffet Rule, the Repeal Big Oil Tax Subsides Act, and appointments to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and directorship of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau have been stopped by out-of-date Senate procedures.  
  • The progressive community is counting on you to enact some real meaningful reform.

3. Use our form to let us know how the call went.

We apologize, but this action is no longer available. Please visit our Action Center for current opportunities: www.sierraclub.org/takeaction
