Tuberville fiasco, CDC COVID booster restrictions, 14th Amendment, and more!

Contact all members of Congress:

Contact White House or other federal agencies:

    Though we all wish it was behind us, we are entering another Covid surge, with hospitalizations up 16% from mid-August and deaths up 18% from the same period.  Despite this increased risk to all of us, NPR reports the CDC plans to limit fall boosters to people who are over 75, pregnant or immunocompromised With hospitalizations and deaths on the rise, all of us need the further protection these boosters can give us and the CDC must change course and make them available to everyone. There is still time.  We can tell the CDC to let all who need the fall boosters get them. Friday, Sept 8 is the last day to submit our comments here

  • ADVANCING STUDENT MENTAL HEALTHThe CDC (the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) reports  that, in schools with LGBTQ-supportive policies and practices,  all  students experience less emotional distress, less violence and harassment, and fewer suicidal thoughts and behaviors. The CDC’s What Works in Schools program “has been shown to improve health behaviors and experiences, support mental health and reduce suicidality in schools….” Let’s  read about the program, and let’s share it with our local school boards (look up) and tell them that we want these policies and practices implemented in our schools. (h/t Lexington Pride Coalition)


  • MI – NATIONAL POPULAR VOTEIn 2000 and 2016, the presidential candidates who lost the popular vote still became president, because they had won the most electoral votes. This system of the Electoral College deciding the presidency is not only an inaccurate and unfair representation of the people, but it is also founded in racism. Although it would take a constitutional amendment to get rid of the Electoral College altogether, some states are adopting a workaround by joining the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. The states that have joined the Compact have passed state laws in which they commit their electoral votes to the popular vote winner of the presidential election. Michigan has taken the first step to join the Compact, by introducing the National Popular Vote law (HB 4156/SB 126) in the House and Senate. Let’s contact our state legislators and tell them that every Michigander’s vote matters, and that we want them to support and pass the National Popular Vote Law.
