    With the Ides of March just two days away (Wednesday, March 15) people from around the country organizing to send the president a message the old-fashioned way: by postcard.
  • Defend the nation's healthcare system from Republican attack by joining the #ProtectOurCare fight
    As the nation awaits the CBO score on the House GOP's plan to destroy healthcare, the time is now to step up the pressure on your elected lawmaker to oppose this legislation
    • Call your representative using the district-specific Affordable Care Act numbers provided by Contacting Congress.   
    • Stand with Planned Parenthood in their ongoing effort to defeat the repeal effort and protect women's rights here.
    • says we have 17 days to save healthcare—and that they have "a plan that could work."  Listen to Sunday night's "Ready to Resist" plan here.

  • Demand your Representative call on the Dept. of Justice to release information about Trump's Conflicts of Interest

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
