January 6: Coverage continues https://www.cnbc.com/2022/07/12/jan-6-committee-hearing-live-coverage-and-latest-updates-day-7.html

INTROVERT ALERT!: We added a phonebank training for Wednesday especially for those of us who wouldn’t normally consider doing this activity. Turns out we have the skills to be pretty good at it!

NEW ACTION !Follow Black women back to the real constitution.

We respect law professor Michelle Goodwin’s analysis of the living power of the 13th Amendment to reach through history to protect Black women’s bodily autonomy in the present day.

We’re asking our legislators to respect it too, and write a bill protecting abortion rights using it as a basis.

We also asking President Biden to:
– protect both pharmacists and access for people who need medications that might also be considered abortifascients.
– Declare that forced-birth for minors is child abuse.
– Declare protection for those seeking abortions under the 1st, 8th and 13th amendments.

Thursday preview  – 07/14/2022 – ONLINE webinar – “Tax the Ultra-Rich” (11:00 am PT)

WHAT: Tax the Ultra-Rich Now Launch
WHO: Americans for Tax Fairness, Health Care for America Now, Working Families Party, and more!
WHEN: Thursday, July 14, 2pm ET / 11am PT
WHERE: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZUrdu-srTgoEtCUFkQ8krv9bntVvDSbEWpa

We have the momentum to pass policies that begin to unrig our tax system. The U.S. Senate is negotiating a package right now that has already passed the House—the legislation will start to make the wealthy and corporations pay their fair share in taxes. And President Biden has joined elected officials in the House and the Senate to propose a tax on billionaire wealth gains! This is our moment—let’s make it happen!

The nation’s 740 billionaires now control more wealth than the 65 million households that make up the bottom half of our economy. They use that wealth to buy politicians and rig the system in their favor while paying lower tax rates than firefighters, teachers, or nurses.

That’s why we’re banding together with some of the top tax fairness fighters—Americans for Tax Fairness, Excessive Wealth Disorder Institute, Health Care for America Now, The Other 98%, Working Families Party, and more—for a new campaign to Tax the Ultra-Rich Now (TURN)!

On Thursday, July 14th, join us for the launch of the TURN campaign and the Excessive Wealth Disorder Institute. We’ll hear from experts and activists alike about why now is the time to tax the ultra-rich, and how you can get involved.

Featuring:
Gabriel Zucman, Professor/Inequality Expert
Maurice Mitchell, Working Families Party
Keron Blair, New Georgia Project
Annette Magnus, Battle Born Progress
Alan Davis, Excessive Wealth Disorder Institute
Margarida Jorge, Health Care for America Now!

FIGHT BACK! – CALL ACTIONSUPDATES! GOOD NEWS! THANKS TO VOTER PRESSURE – THE CA INTERNET-VOTING BILL SB-1480 DIED AND THE PLASTICS BILL WON!

It’s not just Chad. Tell your senators – No more Federalist Society members and FILL THOSE JUDICIAL VACANCIES NOW!

Chad is just one part of the problem. There are a lot of empty judiciary seats that will remain open at the end of this term of Congress, if the Sen. Judiciary Committee doesn’t pick up the pace. If the GOP re-takes the Senate at the midterms, McConnell will…well, need we say more?
– Action #1: Tell your senators that voting for Chad Meredith, or ANY FEDERALIST SOCIETY MEMBER, is a racist action. AND START FILLING THOSE VACANCIES!
– Action #2: Call Biden.
– Action #3: Write Biden.

WTH? Tell your senators to vote “NO” on confirming Wall Street stooge Andrew Biggs to oversee Social Security.

Make sure your friends in red states are emailing and calling their legislators as well!
Is there a committee specifically designed to nominate inappropriate people for government positions?
Seriously, what next? Trump for U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine?

Declare an environmental emergency, Mr. President!

“Today, the Court strips the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the power Congress gave it to respond to the most pressing environmental challenge of our time. The Court appoints itself — instead of Congress or the expert agency—the decisionmaker on climate policy. I cannot think of many things more frightening.” (dissenting justice statement on West Virginia v. EPA) Neither can we – as this ruling clearly undermines the broad powers of the EPA to regulate pollution, which is needed to address the deepening climate crisis and frontline communities most impacted by inaction. Write to Joe and tell him to flex his power NOW!

Stealthing should be recognized as sexual assault nationwide.

CA led the way with the nation’s first stealthing law. Now, post-Roe, with lives on the line, Congress should pass a similar law nationwide. Each man who thinks twice about doing this during sex, means one less person in danger of from their forced-birther state government.

The Supreme Court is deleting democracy. (Updated on 7-12-2022)
(This is an action package we handed out to people at the street fair. It includes actions as well as instructions on how and why to call our own legislators. Share it with those in Red states as well.)

Update: Added more bills to Action #3!
– Action #1: Expand and rebalance this lawless Court with H.R. 2584/S.1141 – Judiciary Act of 2021. It no longer represents the American public.
-Action #2: Supreme Court justices should not be above the law. “YES” on the Judicial Ethics and Anti-Corruption Act and the Supreme Court Ethics Act.
-Action #3: Call your legislators to put private information off-limits!
-Action #4 Chat with Joe.
-Action #5: Help fund non-profit organizations that help women access healthcare.

March for Our Lives – Actions to take now! (Updated on 7-12-2022)
(This is an action package we handed out to people at the street fair. It includes actions as well as instructions on how and why to call our own legislators. Share it with those in Red states as well.)

Update: As of today, (5) CA state bills have been passed and are waiting on Newsom’s desk for signing.
Added an action for Newsom – email him encouraging him to pass them now.
The Senate GOP is giving the nod to the least they can get away with beyond “thoughts and prayers”, and the NRA-captive SCOTUS just handed down another spurious 2nd Amendment decision, allowing concealed carry without cause. Be heard. Call your legislators and make sure your friends and relatives in RED states are calling theirs.
