We need the For the People Act

      Friend,   Maura spent most of the 2020 election cycle blocking Republicans’ attempts to restrict voting access. Now, they’re even more emboldened to continue their attacks on our democracy. So far in the 2021 legislative session, there have already been at least 165 bil…
