Dear Mr. President, the Black Lives Matter Dayton (BLMD) team has been made aware of the possibility that you are considering scrapping the filibuster that Senate Republicans use as a weapon to suppress key pieces of voting rights legislation. Here's link;
https://www.nytimes.com/2021/10/21/us/politics/biden-filibuster-voting-rights.html

As members of the Black community, which have been severely impacted by Republican voter suppression efforts, we are demanding that you take aggressive measures to eliminate barriers to the voting polls.

The BLMD team has made great strides in electing individuals despite the challenges. This has compelled us to work harder with the ability to work independently, looking for opportunities to apply our influence to a broader political base.

Mr. President, we have contributed to your victory in November 2020, as well as deliver you control of the Senate through the Georgia Senate runoff, held on January 5, 2021; all this at the height of a pandemic.

As a political protest, the BLMD team has kicked off this online petition calling on you, our Commander in Chief, to unapologetically alter or end the filibuster, to protect the right to vote; this petition is set to run until a resolution has been made.

In closing, the upcoming 2022 midterm election is fast-approaching with 'obstructive' implications similar to the 2010 midterm election.

Our then President Barack Obama, woefully lost the House due to a decline in down-ballot votes coupled with the obstructive Republican ‘wave’ that was driven by Mitch McConnell and the Tea Party.

Mr. President, modify or end the filibuster...give us a damn good reason to show up at the polls in November 2022.

In the spirit of the late John Lewis, you must protect the most non-violent tool we have, the vote.

Sincerely,
Carlos Buford, Founder of BLMD, together with the community at large.
