  • Stop Republicans from keeping their Obamacare repeal bill hidden from public. What Are They Afraid of? Demand #NoScoreNoVote
    GOP members in the House are avoiding regular order by keeping their repeal plan for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) hidden from public view and it appears as though they are trying to ram through a vote on their bill before the cost of repeal can be objectively calculated by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO)—an unprecedented move.
  • Tell your member of Congress that recusal not enough; that Attorney General Jeff Sessions must resign; demand special prosecutor
    Call your Representative and two Senators today and ask that they make a public statement calling on AG Jeff Sessions to resign. It's not that he had a communications with Russian officials, it's that he lied about it. By Sessions' own standards, someone who has committed perjury must leave office. Demand a special counsel.
  • Continue organizing and planning for #DayWithoutAWomanOnly five days away
    On International Women's Day— Wednesday, March 8thwomen and their allies across the world will act together for equity, justice and the human rights of women and all gender-oppressed people, through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity
