Recurring monthly checks for struggling families until the pandemic is over!

Recurring monthly checks for struggling families until the pandemic is over!

We are nearing the twelve-month mark of our worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Millions of people have lost their jobs, and food and housing access. And the pandemic is more bleak than ever before, half a million Americans dead and rising.

Although Congress is about to issue a third stimulus check, the grand total of this support does not come close to covering a year of basic needs for struggling families. 

But recurring monthly checks would.

Add your name to demand Congress and President Biden pass recurring monthly cash assistance for struggling families until the end of the pandemic!

At least eight million people have fallen into poverty since this pandemic started – and with the vaccine half-a-year away, that number will continue to grow. These numbers disproportionately include Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities – and many people of color are frontline workers but do not have access to unemployment insurance.

The economic toll of this pandemic could take generations to overcome – but it doesn’t have to if Congress and President Biden recognize the most effective way to keep families safe, fed, and housed. 

Sign here to demand recurring month checks for the families who need it the most!

Censure McConnell for voting to acquit Trump and then ADMITTING he was guilty!

Censure McConnell for voting to acquit Trump and then ADMITTING he was guilty!

Moments after voting “not-guilty” on the charges to disgraced ex-President Trump for undermining our elections and inciting a deadly coup, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell stated publicly that Trump was 100% to blame.

McConnell then went on to clarify that his “not-guilty” vote was merely because Trump was no longer in office…after it was singularly thanks to McConnell’s scheming that the trial was delayed until after Trump left office.

Republican hypocrisy at its finest.

Add your name to demand the Senate censures Mitch McConnell for making a public mockery of the impeachment trial.

Trump’s disregard for democracy and penchant for dictatorship is monumentally dangerous to this country’s future. And so is McConnell’s – by sending the crystal clear message that he will not punish Trump (or any other future tyrant) in the face of undeniable guilt.

McConnell had a chance to lead his party into a post-Trump future, once-and-for-all separating the GOP from the violent Trump-era. Instead, McConnell has paved the way for the sequel.

Sign here to demand Mitch McConnell is censured for publicly undermining the main tool Congress has to remove a dictator from the presidency.

Fire every ICE officer involved in deporting 22 infants and children, despite Biden’s deportation moratorium!

Fire every ICE officer involved in deporting 22 infants and children, despite Biden’s deportation moratorium!

One of President Biden’s first actions upon taking office was establishing a 100-day deportation moratorium, temporarily halting the anti-immigrant mechanism that Trump so gleefully built his presidency upon. And although a Texas judge temporarily blocked the executive order, the judge still stated that only the most serious deportation cases should be allowed to continue (like, convicted felons).

At which point Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) went completely rogue and deported at least 72 people, including a two-month-old baby and 21 other completely innocent children to Haiti, which is currently in political turmoil and incredibly dangerous.

Add your name to demand every ICE officer that ordered or contributed sending 22 children into an active uprising – despite a deportation moratorium – is FIRED.

ICE has no interest in stopping deportations. They have been empowered and emboldened by Trump, who granted ICE powers to use pandemic “health protections” as an excuse to continue sending migrants and asylum seekers into inhumane conditions. It is not in their best interests to be led by a president who wants to slow them down.

Which is why public outcry on this inexcusable act of inhumanity must be overwhelming. 

Sign here to demand every ICE officer involved in deporting 22 children to Haiti during Biden’s deportation moratorium is fired!

Demand Statehood for Washington, D.C.

Demand Statehood for Washington, D.C.

Washington, D.C. has a population of approximately 700,000 people, giving the capital city a higher headcount than both Vermont and Wyoming. But unlike the residents of Vermont and Wyoming, who each have two Senators and one Representative in Congress, residents of D.C. have no voice at the federal level.

What’s more, D.C. is a plurality-Black city, meaning there’s a higher percentage (about 45%) of Black residents than any other race, making statehood a major civil rights issue. 

Black votes matter. Sign here to demand Congress passes H.R.51 / S.51, granting statehood to Washington, D.C. 

Republicans aren’t even denying the political games behind their opposition. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is on the record stating he doesn’t want D.C. (or Puerto Rico) to ever reach statehood simply because he doesn’t want more Democrats in Congress. It’s classic GOP voter suppression to silence voters of color.

Statehood for D.C. would give Congressional voice to hundreds of thousands of BIPOCs who deserve it every bit as much as any other American. The time to enfranchise the people of D.C. is NOW.

Add your name to tell Congress that granting statehood for Washington, D.C. is a major civil rights issue – pass H.R.51 / S.51!

Tell Biden and Democrats in Congress not cave to Republican demands for a weaker relief bill

Tell Biden and Democrats in Congress not cave to Republican demands for a weaker relief bill

President Biden and Congress are considering a $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill. But the GOP and a few moderate Democrats are trying to weaken it, and may succeed if the party doesn’t hold firm!

For example: stimulus checks. A growing movement to lower the income cap from $75,000 to $50,000 would cut millions of struggling Americans off from a $1,400 stimulus check…including those who live in major cities where a $52,000 salary barely covers expenses and the impact of the pandemic has been severe (including many teachers and nurses).

Add your name to demand Democrats stand unified and back the strongest version of Biden’s COVID relief package – do not weaken it!

And set aside moderate Democrats for a moment, because Republicans want to cut Biden’s package down to a third of its original size… The height of a global pandemic is not the time for the GOP to hide behind so-called budget cuts, particularly after they fully supported Trump’s Tax Scam giveaway to millionaires and billionaires.

Struggling Americans need support NOW.

Sign here to demand Democrats pass Biden’s $1.9 trillion relief bill…and nothing less.

Reunite the immigrant families separated by Trump!

Reunite the immigrant families separated by Trump!

We now know that Trump’s instituted the Zero Tolerance policy at the border with the explicit intention of separating children from their parents, thinking it would be a good way to intimidate future asylum-seekers and migrant families from crossing the border. 

Our disgraced ex-president tore apart more than 5,500 desperate and vulnerable families. And their situation now is as disastrous as it is tragic.

Add your name to ask the Biden Administration work quickly to reunite the families broken apart by Trump.

At least 1000 children are still separated from their parents (many currently in detention camps) but have yet to be reunited.

An additional 500+ are not only separated, but Trump’s mismanagement and lack of care means our government cannot locate the parents. Many have been deported back to their home countries while their children remain locked up here – and in other cases, the children have been deported while the parents languish in Trump’s concentration camps.

President Biden must bring these families back together as quickly as possible – and ensure this type of cruelty never happens again.

Sign here to ask President Biden to prioritize reuniting every single immigrant family separated by Trump’s administration.

Expel Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene for death threats against other Members of Congress!

Expel Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene for death threats against other Members of Congress!

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (R-GA-14) is a freshman Congresswoman and QAnon sympathizer who has made consistent headlines for her calls for the murder and executions of Democratic Members of Congress.

Greene has suggested that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has committed treason, punishable by death. She has shared photos of herself holding a gun alongside “Squad” members Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib. And she’s encouraged her followers to do the same, boosting comments on her social media pages calling for the violent deaths of many prominent Democrats, including President Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Add your name to demand Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is expelled for inciting the murder of fellow Members of Congress.

Greene has also attempted to debunk the facts of the Parkland High School massacre that killed 17 and spread a conspiracy theory that the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting was staged. Greene called the Las Vegas mass shooting that killed 58 a plot to overturn the Second Amendment.

She is excessively dangerous, particularly during a time when we are still reeling from Trump’s violent coup, and the GOP should be leading the charge to remove her.

Sign here to demand Congress expel Rep. Greene for inciting violence and death.

Tell the Senate to convict and bar Trump from holding office again!

Tell the Senate to convict and bar Trump from holding office again!

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has transmitted the articles of impeachment to the Senate. On February 9th, the Senate will begin the trial of disgraced ex-President Donald Trump, who has been charged with inciting a violent attempted coup, carried out by armed Republican extremists. This, after months of threatening phone calls, backdoor deals, and frivolous lawsuits to change the results of the election.

And they must convict. Because anything less than a resounding, bipartisan rebuke of Trump’s attempt to overthrow our democracy will simply send a signal to future dictator hopefuls: be better at your coup.

Add your name to demand the Senate convicts Trump and blocks him from running for public office ever again.

Nothing is stopping Trump from running again in 2024, building his MAGA militias for a sequel even more bloody than the first. Nothing…except a Senate conviction, followed by a separate vote to block this dangerous possibility.

Our democracy barely survived four years under Trump. For the sake of our country, the Senate must unite to end this dark era once and for all.

Sign here to demand Senators convict Trump for his deadly coup and votes to ensure he never holds office again.

Eliminate the undemocratic filibuster!

Eliminate the undemocratic filibuster!

Ending debate for most legislation in the Senate, and moving on to a final vote, requires 60 votes. Which means, the minority party may simply vote against ending debate – thereby blocking legislation that would otherwise pass the final vote with a simple majority. This is the filibuster…no longer epic speeches into the night.

The minority has nearly the same power as the majority, thanks to the filibuster. It’s a strong break from our Constitution, which envisioned simple majority rule. And, it’s been the favorite tool of the GOP to block Democrats’ most progressive attempts at real change…meaning Mitch McConnell still has enormous control.

Add your name to demand the Senate eliminate the undemocratic filibuster!

The filibuster’s past and present is racist. It has been used since the early 20th-century to block major pieces of civil rights legislation, dramatically slowing our progress toward being a nation-for-all. 

And remember our fight to protect Dreamers from Trump? That only happened because the GOP used the filibuster to block The Dream Act in 2010. President Obama has said the filibuster made it impossible for him to effectively govern.

The filibuster HAS to go – now.

Sign here to tell Senators that ending the filibuster is the only way forward for our country.

Arrest Donald Trump.

Arrest Donald Trump.

Disgraced ex-President Trump has left the White House! Don crept out early and is now holed up in his Mar-A-Lago club…

…which is where prosecutors can find him, to arrest and charge him for his multitude of crimes. While President, Trump enjoyed immunity. But he had more than a dozen investigations running against him before he spearheaded a violent attempted coup that endangered the lives of US Members of Congress and killed five…and his immunity is up.

Add your name to demand Donald Trump is arrested for his portfolio of crimes.

Special Counsel Mueller literally spelled out the case for Trump’s obstruction of justice during his first impeachment hearings, a gross refusal to obey the law in an investigation inspecting whether Trump broke the law elsewhere. And just as Trump’s first impeachment trial was ending, his denial and negligence of COVID-19 allowed the rapid spread that has now killed over 400,000 Americans.

But even before he took office, Trump appears to have engaged in massive banking, insurance, and tax fraud…and now that he’s not covered by immunity, investigators in New York State are coming for him.

Book him.

Sign here to tell federal and state law enforcement to arrest Trump for obstruction of justice, murder, sedition, and fraud.
