What’s Trending? 📈 January 6th and voting rights

WHAT’S TRENDING THIS WEEK

  • COVID-19: The Omicron variant continues to fuel a significant rise in both cases and hospitalizations across the country. While continuing to encourage Americans to get vaccinated and receive booster shots when eligible, the Biden-Harris administration recently announced plans to increase access to at-home testing and high-quality masks. 73% of U.S. adults are now fully vaccinated, 87% have received at least one dose, and 40% have received booster shots.
  • Voting rights: President Biden formally called on the Senate to change its filibuster rules to pass voter protections during a speech in Atlanta, Georgia on Tuesday. Democratic congressional leadership quickly announced their plans to begin moving voting rights legislation through the chambers and, on Thursday morning, the House passed “the Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act” 220–203.
