Don't let the Senate weaken Franken amendment

Thanks to help from activists like you, lawmakers passed Sen. Al Franken’s (D-Minn.) amendment to bar defense contractors from forcing employees with sexual assault and discrimination claims into arbitration. But now, as the House and Senate negotiate a final version of the Department of Defense Appropriations Act (DOD Appropriations bill, H.R. 3326), Senate leaders are considering weakening the amendment by leaving discrimination victims unprotected.

A man crawling across an endless field of contracts toward the scales of justice far in the distance,
Call Sen. Reid today!

Stand up to corporate defense contractors on behalf of victims of discrimination and assault! Call Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) TODAY and tell him the final DOD Appropriations bill MUST include the Franken Amendment, S.A. 2588.

No one — especially a victim of a heinous, violent crime — should be denied access to a judge and jury because of a binding mandatory arbitration clause in a contract. Please help ensure that this important amendment is passed and this abuse of power by government defense contractors ends.

Call Sen. Reid today and tell him not to strip out or water down the Franken Amendment! You’ll find instructions and talking points on our Web site. Please don’t forget to let us know what you hear!
