  • Start organizing for #Stakeout(s) against Republican lawmakers on Thurs (3/16) and Fri. (3/17), spearheaded by
    We can stop them and save our health care, if we raise our voices in unprecedented ways. That’s why constituents will gather outside the district offices of nine Republican Senators and 23 Republican Representatives who hold the decisive votes for peaceful "Stakeouts to Save Our Health Care" from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. this Thursday and Friday, March 16 and 17, when members of Congress return home for a scheduled "district work period".

  • Join those calling on the Senate to #StopGorsuch
    With confirmation hearings set to begin next week for Trump's Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, Democratic lawmakers and constituents nationwide are saying #WeObject and vowing to #StopGorsuch from bringing his anti-woman, pro-corporate agenda to the highest U.S. court.
  • Help expose Republican hypocrisy by joining this demand that congressional lawmakers give up their subsidized care as they have said regular Americans must do
    Highlighting the hypocrisy of members of Congress who benefit from large healthcare subsidies at the same time that they work to kick millions of Americans off of their health coverage, a man who lost his father to cancer because he was uninsured has created a petition demanding an end to those subsidies for lawmakers.
    • Sign the petition now.
    • Call your elected representative and ask them why their coverage is more important than your friends, family, and neighbors
