Today’s Action: Pass the PRO Act and protect the right to unionize!

Corporate fatcats and their corrupt cronies in Congress have been relentlessly trying to stamp out worker power and crush American unions for decades — and certain Senators are still holding up the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act that would provide more equitable conditions for all workers.

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics recently released their 2021 union membership report, which reported that union membership dropped by nearly a quarter million workers — meaning the addition of 4.2 million pandemic recovery jobs didn’t grow the number of workers in unions. Corporate America’s desperate efforts to get everyone back to work has reminded workers everywhere they’re worth more than low pay, low benefits, long hours, and emotional abuse from their bosses.

The fact is, when unions thrive, American workers and families thrive. It’s that simple.

But unionization isn’t easy for anyone — companies like Amazon, Starbucks, and Kelloggs have continued to implement new levels of union-busting tactics while workers across the country fight for better pay and better workplace conditions. Though it passed through the House last year, Senators are still holding up the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act and delaying more equitable conditions for all workers.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your Senators and ask them to support the PRO Act in solidarity with the growing labor movement across the country!

It is horrifying to see just how badly big corporations treat their workers — just look at the recent tornado outbreak in the Midwest, when Amazon reportedly prohibited workers from returning home, resulting in multiple deaths. A unionized warehouse might have saved lives.

Everyone should have the right to organize their workplace and join a union, but fewer than 11% of American workers are presently unionized. Every worker deserves a living wage and better working conditions – we need the PRO Act to protect and guarantee the right to union membership and democratized workplaces.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your Senators and demand they support the PRO Act! Send them this petition with almost 40,000 signatures in favor of its passage!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to stop the Florida bill that would erase LGBTQ+ history from classrooms, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Read the never-issued Trump order that would have seized voting machines

Among the records that Donald Trump’s lawyers tried to shield from Jan. 6 investigators are a draft executive order that would have directed the defense secretary to seize voting machines and a document titled “Remarks on National Healing.”

The executive order — which also would have appointed a special counsel to probe the 2020 election — was never issued, and the remarks were never delivered. Together, the two documents point to the wildly divergent perspectives of White House advisers and allies during Trump’s frenetic final weeks in office… [more]

Today’s Action:  Fight gerrymandering and make redistricting more fair!

We are at a major crossroads in the fight for fair and free elections. One of the most critical fights we face this year is ensuring everyone’s access to their right to vote – and the GOP is fighting to prevent it. Voter suppression efforts are intensifying by the day, all while states begin to draw new districts.

Census data has already been released that allows states to begin the redistricting process. Without proper voter protection laws in place at the federal level, fair districting is nowhere near guaranteed.

To fight gerrymandering in your state, read up on Indivisible’s gerrymandering resources and take action in your state!

Redistricting occurs once every decade and hugely impacts the fairness of politics. Gerrymandering is a historically racist process in which district boundaries are manipulated in favor of a political party (we all know which one). Without the federal voting rights legislation progressives are fighting for, communities everywhere are at serious risk of distorted and diminished representation.

By educating ourselves on gerrymandering, we can better advocate for fair electoral processes. Learning the laws, attending public hearings, organizing in your community, connecting with other organizations… These are just some of the amazing tips and resources that the good folks at Indivisible provide for real action.

There’s space for everyone in this fight. Check out Indivisible’s resources and learn how to make a change!

Today’s Action: Extend the paid sick leave requirements for employers!

This week, the United States shattered the global record for daily positive cases with a whopping 1.35 million reported. Despite this, a multitude of workplaces are shortening sick leave – and some are even requesting that COVID positive employees return to work, like nurses and teachers whose professions are experiencing significant shortages due to their high risk nature. Teachers’ and nurses’ unions are fighting tooth and nail for better hazard pay, adequate sick leave, remote options, and flat-out empathy, and yet across the country they’re being told to put their lives at risk instead of receiving adequate resources and conditions.

The workforce is struggling – but especially understaffed and underpaid is our healthcare and education systems. 25% of American hospitals have reported being critically understaffed. School districts have gone so far as to ask parents to step in as substitute teachers. At the very least, we need federally mandated paid sick leave – and quickly.

Call (202.224.3121) or email your Members of Congress and demand that they extend the paid sick leave requirements for employers!

Guaranteed paid sick leave can slow the spread by ensuring less COVID positive people are interacting with others, without risking their paycheck. It can ensure that teachers and nurses are able to isolate themselves at home, not forced to continue working. 

No one should have to choose between paying their rent and exposing coworkers to a potentially fatal illness. 

Today we are at 850,000 COVID deaths and counting. That doesn’t include the deaths of those that have died due to the lack of hospital beds, overwhelmed ICUs across the country, and even while waiting extreme amounts of time for medical attention. It’s clear we are not out of the COVID trenches yet, and yet federal COVID sick leave ended an entire year ago.

Call (202.224.3121) or email your Members of Congress and call for the extension of COVID paid sick leave requirements!

Today’s Action: End or amend the filibuster to preserve voting rights!

With an onslaught of voter suppression laws making their way through state legislatures, the need for federal voting rights legislation is greater than ever. As many as 262 bills were introduced last year with the aim of obstructing democracy, in 41 different states. Already 32 of those bills have become law, jeopardizing the right to vote for Americans in 17 states. We’re months into an election-fueled Republican temper tantrum that spiraled into abuse of the filibuster and time is running out in the fight for fair and free elections – it’s time to amend the filibuster.

While a wholesale end to the filibuster may not currently be realistic, we can encourage our senators to grant a carve-out for voting rights in the meantime. Chuck Schumer has promised either action on voting rights or a vote on changing the Senate rules to allow for a carve-out by January 17th. Such an exception could allow for critical voting rights protections to finally reach President Biden’s desk, and we need all hands on deck to ensure it receives the necessary support from our elected officials.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your senators and demand to end the filibuster as soon as possible or allow a carve-out for voting rights legislation! 

To be clear, the fight doesn’t stop with voting rights legislation. Abortion access, preventing a recession, Medicaid expansion, cannabis reform, universal pre-k and college access, an expanded child tax credit that’s already alleviated child poverty by 50% across the country — there’s a lot on the line. But none of it can pass with the filibuster in place.

In Mitch McConnell’s hands it has become the primary conservative weapon, brandished at will to prevent popular progressive legislation supported by a clear majority of Americans from becoming law. The filibuster MUST go. Now.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your senators and remind them that ending the filibuster is the only way forward for our country!

Today’s Action: Mask up and get boosted to slow the spread! 

We have not yet reached the peak of the latest COVID surge, and entire states are reporting that they are out of ICU beds. Some hospitals are so understaffed that they are asking asymptomatic COVID positive nurses to come into work, and our healthcare system is being worked to the bone.

That means no beds for car wreck victims, no beds for heart attack victims – it is not just people with COVID who will suffer and die as the pandemic worsens. With the transmissibility of the Omicron variant as high as it is, unvaccinated or immunocompromised COVID patients in need of critical care will only increase. We are running out of resources.

We all have a part to play in ending this pandemic. If each of us took the most basic steps to protect ourselves from catching and spreading this disease, we could save lives at put the crisis behind us.

If you haven’t gotten your booster and it’s been 6 months since your last shot, make the appointment to get boosted. Mask up in public even if you are vaccinated. Follow the updated CDC guidelines and mask up indoors, even if you’re vaccinated. Get tested if you’ve been exposed and most importantly – stay home if you are sick!

While you’re on the website, check out their recommended conversation points for talking to a loved one about getting vaccinated! 

Vaccines and masks work. They’re safe, too. Not using the tools we have in the fight against COVID puts an entire planet at risk — the immunocompromised, children, the elderly.

Keep your neighbor safe. Get the shots and mask up.
