“We are asking you to join us by calling on your senators to pass the For the People Act immediately,” the letter reads in part.
“This landmark bill is the most critical civil rights legislation since the Civil Rights Movement,” the group said in a release.
The open letter says the legislation “is not about choosing one party or one issue over another. It is about commonsense reforms and best practices that make our democracy more open, more fair, and more inclusive.”
Among the letter’s more than 60 signatories are Alicia Keys, Jada Pinkett Smith, Laverne Cox, Joe Jonas, Leonardo DiCaprio, Carmelo Anthony and José Andrés.
