TELL ARIZONA LAWMAKERS:
ABORTION IS A HUMAN RIGHT
Arizona lawmakers are trying to limit and restrict access to abortion care. In a particularly extreme bill, HB 2650, prosecutors would be allowed to incarcerate and seek the death penalty people for having an abortion, as well as the doctors who perform this essential care. We must take a stand and ensure that abortion remain legal and accessible for all.
Additionally, HB 2404 would allocate millions of taxpayer dollars to an organization that is notorious for tracking pregnant people to steer them away from abortion providers. Let’s be clear: the decision to have an abortion should only be between a person and their medical provider. Politicians have no place in those important and personal decisions.
Contact Arizona lawmakers and urge them to reject this type of legislation and protect abortion care.
DEMAND YOUR REPRESENTATIVES BUILD ON BIDEN’S RESCUE PLAN TO PASS BOLD RELIEF
In just a few days, the House will be voting on the latest COVID-19 relief package. Additional relief is long overdue, and with some protections from the CARES Act expiring in March, we don’t have any time to waste. The Biden administration’s American Rescue Plan is a strong start, and now we have to ensure Congress builds on the plan with key progressive improvements to expand relief measures and create a truly inclusive, transformative response.
The first thing you can do right now to support these efforts is to call your representative to demand they support a bold rescue plan, include our key progressive improvements, and defend the bill once it heads to the Senate!

The Nuclear Resister – by Marion Pack
A major win in the work to create a nuclear-free world has been achieved. In October, 2020, the 50th country ratified the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW). On January 22, 2021, the formal ceremony bringing the treaty into full force took place at the United Nations in New York City.
