Fight for Voting Rights: The efforts to pass voter suppression laws are ongoing and so are most of the opportunities listed here.
Save Democracy, Kill the Filibuster: Efforts to get rid of the Jim Crow-era, anti-democratic filibuster are looking even better than when we published this action, so call — especially call Sen. Feinstein — today!
Support the THRIVE Act: The THRIVE Act is an amazing bill that tackles America’s public health disaster, racial injustice, the climate crisis, and economic inequity. Thank cosponsors Reps. Lee & DeSaulnier and Sen. Padilla, and tell Sen. Feinstein & Rep. Swalwell to sign on!

No Fooling, This Really Happened
Google “Are you __ing kidding me?” and you’ll get more than you wanted to know about Rep. Matt Gaetz. (Did we make ya look?) The latest: dude trading on his power & putative youthful good looks to have a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old. Which we might not care about, except it violates federal laws against sex trafficking — which Gaetz was the only member of Congress to vote against. Coincidence? You decide. Speaking of inserting yourself where you really shouldn’t: heard about what the Wedding-Crasher-in-Chief did at Marry-a-Lago recently? We can’t help falling in love with him being out of office.
