Stop Cop City, Virginia’s elections, MAGA state attorneys general, and more!

Contact all members of Congress:

Contact White House or other federal agencies:

    Momentum is building to stop the Cop City project in Atlanta, with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s. daughter Bernice King and the King Center endorsing the push to put the project up for a public vote. Activists are making one last push to get the signatures they need to put the Cop City referendum on the ballot in November, hoping to get 70,000 by Monday, August 14th, and they’re asking for our help. We can sign up for a virtual phone bank today, tomorrow or Sunday to contact eligible Atlantans and urge them to sign the petition.

Both bills are before the Senate Judiciary Committee, so if any of these committee members are our Senators, let’s be especially sure to contact them.

    It seems that misinformation is not to be scrutinized, even by the National Institutes of Health.  The NIH’s acting director, Larry Tabak, has paused — maybe killed —a planned initiative called Advancing Health Communication Science and Practice aimed at exploring health misinformation and the best means of communicating accurate health information to the public.  Let’s tell Dr. Tabak that we depend on information from the NIH and hope this initiative will have the agency’s full backing: @NIHDirector or 301-496-7322 or
