Today’s Action: Honor Christchurch victims by fighting Trump’s Islamophobia

This past Friday, 50 innocent lives were lost at the hands of a white supremacist, who entered two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, and live-streamed as he murdered and injured worshippers with a semi-automatic weapon.

Our hearts ache for the families, the communities, and all Muslims who feel the shockingly real threat of Islamophobia on a daily basis. And we are also hardened by facts: the shooter cited Trump’s anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant policies as inspiration for his act of terror.

March Recess begins this week, and our Members of Congress are at home. If they are hosting a town hall, show up in person and ask them to support and honor the victims of Christchurch by cosponsoring the legislation (H.R. 810, S.246, and the upcoming “No Ban Act” in both chambers) to end the Muslim Ban. If there’s no town hall, call or email.

Trump has shaped global politics with his Islamophobic sentiments, and it’s long past time for Congress to step up and counter his hate-filled, terror-producing policies that have impacted and terrorized the 1.8 billion Muslims here at home and abroad.

Millions of Americans indefinitely blocked from seeing their loved ones. Countless international students unable, deterred, or too frightened to return to school. 5.5 million refugees denied the possibility of safety and protection.

The Muslim Ban was one of Trump’s original campaign promises, a vow to his rabid supporters that he’d keep out an entire religion of adherents (approximately one-fourth of the global population). And now, it has been used to justify horrific acts of violence…and we must end it before it inspires more.

Visit your Members of Congress in-person at a town hall during recess, and demand their support of Muslims everywhere by cosponsoring the legislation to end the Muslim Ban (H.R. 810, S.246, and the upcoming “No Ban Act” in both chambers). If you can’t say it in person, say it via phone or email.

Today’s Action: Take a stand for Native women, pass Savanna’s Act

It’s a non-negotiable, stark, and heartbreaking fact. Native women in the United States face astounding, disproportionate rates of violence. More than four in five are victims of violence in their lifetimes, and 56% face sexual violence.

Our current institutions fail these women. In 2016 alone, 5,712 cases of missing or murdered Native women were reported, but only 116 of these were logged in the Department of Justice database. Institutionalized racism and sexism has long kept the dangerous plight of Native women in the shadows…but Savanna’s Act aims to shed some light.

Call or email your Senators and ask them to cosponsor and approve Savanna’s Act. Remind them that last year’s Senate passed Savanna’s Act unanimously – and you expect them to do the same now.

Former Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) first introduced Savanna’s Act in 2017, a widely-supported bipartisan bill to increase communication between federal and local authorities, strengthen crime data collection, and hold accountable law enforcement agencies that don’t follow the law.

But in late December 2018, after passing the Senate unanimously, the bill was blocked in the House by the former House Judiciary Chair (who is no longer in office and whose party is no longer in control) because he didn’t like the sound of police being held accountable for actually doing their jobs (we do not miss him). Heitkamp did not win re-election, but Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) has re-introduced the bill.

Native women urgently need our support. With a new Congress in session, both chambers must start from scratch to pass Savanna’s Act – so let’s push them forward as quickly as possible.

Contact your Senators and tell them to co-sponsored Savanna’s Act immediately. If they already have, thank them!

Today’s Action: Tell the House to support universal healthcare!

Our country spends more on healthcare than almost any other in the world — but our health results rank tragically low compared to other wealthy nations, especially for women, people of color, and low-income communities.

But more than 100 Democrats in the House have cosponsored a bill to create universal healthcare. The Medicare for All Act seeks to finally provide what even Obamacare couldn’t secure: a single-payer (government-funded) healthcare system that guarantees quality medical coverage for every single American (and yes, even immigrants!)

And what’s more: it could save the United States (and taxpayers) $350 billion a year, even as it’s saving lives and guaranteeing the right to healthcare.

Call or email your Representatives and urge them to cosponsor The Medicaid for All Act (and if they already have cosponsored, thank them!) Tell them universal, quality healthcare should be a right — especially a plan that costs billions less than our current system.

The Medicare for All Act would cut our impossibly high healthcare costs by setting standardized prices for medical procedures, creating budgets based on previous years’ actual spending (preventing false cost inflation), and easing the path to more affordable generic lifesaving medications.

Further, the act seeks to cut administrative spending, which accounts for 25% of healthcare costs. Without the need for hospital employees to sort through thousands of insurance plans, the elimination of market cap motivation, and little marketing budget needed in a single-payer system, The Medicare for All Act trims the spending significantly without touching the quality care provided.

Seems like a healthy choice to us.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Representatives and ask them to cosponsor The Medicaid for All Act – and thank them if they’ve already signed on!

Today’s Action: Tell the House to protect Dreamers and TPS holders

18 months ago, Trump abruptly ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which grants immigrants who came to our country as children the ability to remain in the place they call home. We fought Trump hard – and although we won the right for current DACA recipients to renew their status, no new applications are being accepted.

This means the door is currently closed to the millions of would-be recipients who had not yet applied, or who have arrived after September 2017.

There is one clear solution: our old friend, the Dream Act. And thanks to Democrats in the House, the Dream Act is back on the table.

Call or email your Representative and tell them to cosponsor and pass The Dream and Promise Act of 2019.

The Dream and Promise Act of 2019 doesn’t just help Dreamers — it also protects Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders, individuals who have been granted status to remain here while it is too dangerous to return home.

Trump has ended protections for about 300,000 TPS holders, many of whom face persecution or death should they be ejected from the United States. And – this sudden loss of status also means thousands of parents will be separated from their children, and spouses torn apart.

Trump has done everything in his power to rip apart immigrant families at every access point — and it’s up to us to fight back for reunification, blow by blow.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Representative in the House and ask them to cosponsor and pass The Dream and Promise Act of 2019. Tell them that Dreamers and TPS holders need our help to stop family separation at the hands of the Trump Administration.

Today’s Action: Investigate sexual assault against detained migrant children

This week, during congressional hearings on President Trump’s family separation policy, Democrats in the House revealed data from the Department of Health and Human Services cataloging sexual assault against migrant children detained without their parents.

Just one child victim of sexual assault while in U.S. custody would be criminal — but try 4,500 allegations between 2015-2018. And during Trump’s Zero Tolerance policy which led to family separation last year, the rates of assault skyrocketed.

Call or email your Members of Congress and demand an investigation into the epidemic of sexual assault against detained migrant children in U.S. custody.

Of the accusations, 178 were against staff members, mostly youth-care workers responsible for the constant monitoring of unaccompanied detained children.

The level of trauma associated with systemic sexual assault against immigrant children – especially those separated from parents – cannot be underestimated. These circumstances must be examined immediately to prevent future damage done by the hands of our federal government.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and ask them to immediately launch an investigation into sexual harassment and assault against unaccompanied immigrant children while in U.S. custody.

And while we’re on the phone, let’s tell them to shut down child prisons entirely, shall we?
