The Rev. Jesse Jackson was among more than 200 people arrested in Washington, D.C., by Capitol Police on Monday while protesting in favor of Democratic legislation.

This is the latest arrest of several this year for Jackson, who joined on Monday other protesters from the Poor People’s Campaign March outside Union Station in D.C. in support of the Democrats' sweeping election reform bill.

Also in the protest were Lucy and Linda Johnson, the daughters of President Lyndon B. Johnson.

The reverend and civil rights activist claimed the nation is in a "civilization crisis" with drawn "battle lines" while calling on other activists to fight nonviolently for their rights, remarking the "power’s in you, the people."

Protesters marched to Sinema's office chanting to "end" the filibuster — the historic procedural measure that is used to kill bills by preventing a vote, which the Democrats used over 300 times in 2020 alone.

Additionally, the civil rights activist was arrested alongside Bishop William Barber II in June for a similar protest outside the U.S. Capitol against the filibuster and GOP opposition to a minimum wage hike.

Sinema and her colleague Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., have come under serious fire from progressives looking to nix the Senate tradition, but both have stood by the filibuster.

Runaway Texas Democrats in DC get pep talks from Stacey Abrams, the Clintons

  Runaway Texas Democrats in DC get pep talks from Stacey Abrams, the Clintons As a group of runaway Texas Democrats continued their stay in Washington, D.C., they reportedly received a video pep talk from Democratic activist Stacey Abrams on Thursday – and also reportedly met with Bill and Hillary Clinton. Texas state Rep. Donna Howard posted a Twitter message Thursday that quoted "inspiring words" from Abrams and included a photo of the video meeting with former Georgia gubernatorial candidate. "This fight is worth fighting. Voting is about the ability to have a voice," Abrams told the Texas state lawmakers, according to Howard. "We are finding the power we need to protect our democracy."

Congressional Democrats and progressive groups have taken aim at the filibuster as they push for the Democrats’ controversial voting legislation.

Manchin said during a Sunday interview that he could not imagine a filibuster "carve-out" for the sweeping election overhaul.

The filibuster, a longstanding Senate tradition requiring 60 votes in the 100-member chamber to advance a bill, effectively allows the minority party to block certain legislation. The Senate is currently evenly split 50/50 between the two parties, with the Democrats holding a razor-thin majority due to the tie-breaking vote of Vice President Kamala Harris through her constitutional role as president of the Senate.

But the Democrats are nowhere close to obtaining the 60 votes needed to quash a filibuster. They don’t even have the simple majority needed to eliminate the legislative filibuster rule.

I don't recognize the once vibrant Black mecca of Jackson Ward. The infrastructure of the neighborhood has largely changed. Many homes were converted into condos after the tsunami of urbanization. But my family's office continues to serve majority patients of color in the same community. The fishing trips and dances may be gone, but the clinic continues to foster trust. As Ms. Jeffers said, at this doctor's office, "if you are sick, you are never sick alone. If you are feeling bad, you are never feeling bad alone.
