Today’s Action: Tell Congress we need the Build Back Better Act in full!

The $3.5 trillion dollar Build Back Better Act would be the most transformative economic package for America’s working families and seniors since the New Deal. And yet a handful of Democrats continue to insist it’s too much, threatening the elimination of provisions that would dramatically improve lives and rekindle the American Dream for millions.

Faced with a choice between the child tax credit, paid family leave, and vital investments in clean energy and green jobs, there is only one answer: All of the above.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your representative in the House and tell them to stand strong behind the full Build Back Better Act, and remind them that working families are on the line!

The Build Back Better Act would initiate significant investments in childcare, paid family and medical leave, expanded Medicare and Medicaid, and universal pre-k education, as well as a permanent child tax credit which has already cut childhood poverty in half across the country. On top of that, it could turn the United States into a global force for cleaner energy and real emissions reduction. With a price tag that will be paid by only the wealthiest households and corporate America, there’s zero reason to cut funding.

Democrats need to fight until the very end for the passage of the bill with all of the original bill. Working America can’t wait.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your representative to remind them America’s future depends on their commitment to the passage of the Build Back Better Act!

Judge puts immediate hold on Texas abortion ban in challenge from President Biden

A federal judge temporarily blocked a near-total ban on abortion in Texas – the toughest such law in the country – in a challenge brought by President Joe Biden’s administration after the U.S. Supreme Court had allowed it to go into effect.

The action by U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman in Austin prevents the state from enforcing the Republican-backed law, which prohibits women from obtaining an abortion after six weeks of pregnancy, while litigation over its legality continues… [more]

Today’s Action: Ending the federal prohibition on cannabis? Not possible with the filibuster in place!

Crucial legislation is still being stopped before it even has a chance to be debated by Mitch McConnell’s minority veto (AKA the filibuster), and it’s putting legislation that could dramatically change the lives of millions of Americans — including the Cannabis Administration and Opportunity Act, which is still building up support.

The bill would legalize cannabis at a federal level and help regulate it, which is a huge step in granting freedom to nonviolent offenders, ending the war on drugs, and relieving capacity in the prison system. It doesn’t make sense for someone in California or Illinois to be in possession of a significant amount of THC legally, while someone with that same amount of substance in another state could be imprisoned.

We can’t fix any of it with the filibuster in place.

Call (202.224.3121) or write your senators and call for an end to the filibuster and their support of Schumer’s Cannabis Administration and Opportunity Act! 

Legalizing marijuana doesn’t just help those incarcerated for possession – it helps those ‘merely’ arrested or convicted for possession as well, which can lead to lost employment, ineligibility for public housing, suspended drivers licenses, and restrictions on student loans.

And the racial disparities in marijuana-related arrests are well-known; a black person is anywhere from four (national average) to fifteen times (in certain areas) more likely to be jailed than a white person in our country. The filibuster has been historically used to uphold racist Jim Crow laws, so it’s not surprising it’s still being used to deepen racial disparities today.

We’re long overdue for a national overhaul of marijuana laws, if only for how our government and police forces have weaponized it, targeting our most vulnerable and oppressed communities.

Call (202.224.3121) or write your senators to tell them to eliminate the filibuster and co-sponsor the Cannabis Administration and Opportunity Act!

Today’s Action: Freedom to Vote Act? Not with the filibuster in place.

Still in the minority, Senate Republicans have weaponized the filibuster this past session to block critical legislation from passage. Nothing has been off-limits — climate measures, educational investments, and voting protections have all been pushed aside by GOP senators hellbent on blocking President Biden’s agenda.

Our democracy is in need of serious reform. The Freedom to Vote Act would protect against partisan gerrymandering, expand early voting, and help rein in big money politics, but there’s no way it (or anything else) can pass with the current filibuster rules in place.

Call (202.224.3121) or write your senators and demand an end to the filibuster and the passage of the Freedom to Vote Act! 

The Freedom to Vote Act builds on the For the People Act to deliver critical voting measures and redistricting provisions that are absolutely necessary for our future elections. All across the nation, conservative state legislatures are passing anti-voter laws that would greatly affect their most marginalized constituents’ right to vote.

The filibuster has been historically used to uphold racist Jim Crow laws, so it’s hardly a surprise that it’s being used for suppression now. It’s an outdated tactic that needs to be eliminated as quickly as possible, before any further badly needed legislation is thwarted.

Call (202.224.3121) or write your senators to tell them to eliminate the filibuster and advance the Freedom to Vote act!

Today’s Action: Women’s Health Protection Act? Not with the filibuster in place.

It’s been weeks since the Supreme Court allowed Texas to criminalize abortion, and the American people are still waiting for federal measures to protect abortion seekers. Abortions are still ostensibly protected by the Constitution as decided in Roe v Wade, and yet those who seek or provide the important health care service can still be threatened with retaliation and unjust obstacles.

Even this past week Governor Greg Abbott has said he will not even look at a bill that would provide exceptions for rape and incest in the heartbeat bill. It’s clear that today’s Republican Party is devoid of humanity for women, and we urgently need our leaders to band together and codify the freedoms guaranteed by Roe v Wade.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your Senators to demand an end to the filibuster, and the passage of federal abortion protections immediately through the Women’s Health Protection Act!

The House recently passed a sweeping health bill that addresses the attacks on abortion care by state officials. It would protect national abortion access without medically unnecessary and, frankly, cruel restrictions such as waiting periods, mandatory ultrasounds, and biased counseling. It would confirm the right to abortion for healthcare providers, requiring them to provide that care.

But none of that can pass with the filibuster in place. We need everyone calling and writing their Senators, demanding an end to the archaic filibuster and a resumption of their legislative obligations.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your Senators and tell them to end the filibuster and pass the WHPA, before the Supreme Court and state governments further gut a woman’s right to choose!
