  • VIRTUAL WATCH PARTY TOMORROW FOR OHIO’S ISSUE ONE (AND MORE CHANCES TO HELP)Most folks believe that tomorrow’s expensive single-issue special election in Ohio is to lessen the chances that the reproductive rights referendum on November’s ballot will pass.  So many of us have worked hard to help get out the vote for this special election that will determine if the threshold for amending the state’s constitution should be raisedBlue Ohio is having a virtual (via Zoom) watch call/party tomorrow at 7:30 pm EST and will have their own elections expert (Ohio’s version of Steve Kornacki) to help analyze returns as they come in.  While this is a Blue Ohio event, it’s open to all.  Registration required. Let’s sign up here to register so we can watch the returns together. We can also sign up to make those last Get Out The Vote calls today and tomorrow here.
    The Environmental Protection Agency has proposed a draft rule addressing planet-warming emissions from nearly all U.S. power plants, requiring them to reduce their contribution to climate change. Environmental groups are pushing for as tough a final rule as possible, including speeding up the timeline, covering more power plants, and focusing on proven solutions for emissions reductions. The comment period on this rule ends TOMORROW, August 8th, and we need to make sure the EPA knows we all want aggressive climate action. We can submit our comments directly through the Federal Register here, and find talking points, sample comments and alternate ways to submit from Climate Hawks Vote here and EarthJustice here.

  • BROADCAST THE TRUMP TRIALSDozens of congressional Democrats have written to the Judicial Conference asking that the federal courts broadcast the court proceedings of the cases against former president Donald Trump. “If the public is to fully accept the outcome,” the letter reads, “it will be vitally important for it to witness, as directly as possible, how the trials are conducted, the strength of the evidence adduced and the credibility of witnesses.” This case was also forcefully made by Ayman Mohyledin after the first round of DoJ indictments. Moreover, we, the citizens of the country, are the victims of the crimes committed, and have a right to see the trial, especially with the cases playing out across the presidential campaign season with the defendant remaining the GOP frontrunner. Let’s send our own letters asking for the broadcasting of these proceedings, and our reasons why. We can write a letter or postcard to The Honorable Roslynn R. Mauskopf, Judicial Conference Secretary, Administrative Office of the United States Courts, One Columbus Circle, NE, Washington, D.C. 20544, and to Chief Justice John Roberts, Supreme Court of the United States, 1 First St NE, Washington, DC 20543.

    Last month, the FDA approved over the counter sales of the Opill, an easy and reliable birth control method. While this is an important and necessary development, especially with the overturning of Roe v. Wade, it is not yet clear how much this pill will cost. In order to assure access, particularly for low-income people with limited or no health insurance, we need to make sure that the cost of this over-the-counter option is affordable. National Justice Network is coordinating a letter writing campaign to the CEO of Perrigo, the pill’s manufacturer. Let’s join in here, or write/call Perrigo directly at their North American headquarters: 430 Monroe Ave NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49503, (269) 673-8451.
