Demand Amy Coney Barrett recuse herself from an upcoming gay rights case!


The Washington Post’s Perry Bacon determined that the mythical red wave was stopped by voters rallying around progressive activists who pushed President Biden to FINALLY abandon Democrats’ failed, decades-long move-to-the-center strategy and embrace a winning plan to improve lives. So yeah, you better f’ing believe we’re thankful for you this year!

Club Q hero is viciously attacked online by right-wing extremists
Richard Fierro, the Army veteran who bravely stopped the Colorado Springs mass shooting that left five dead, is being smeared online by the far right with homophobic slurs for simply attending an LGBTQ establishment.

Watch Major Richard Ojeda TEAR APART the Republican worldview

OD Action Partner: Religious Republicans!? Come on! Time to put that fairy tale to rest. But Republicans are committed to a code of conduct that guides their every motivation. I reveal to you the 10 Republican Commandments.

Justice Department asks Pence to testify in Trump investigation
The disgraced ex-vice president has been called upon to testify against the man whose boots he once licked. Pence has previously said that he would not testify, setting up yet another legal showdown between the Justice Department and one of Trump’s erstwhile henchmen.

GOP loser who lost election for Arizona AG sues over losing

Department of Justice opens investigation into real estate tech company accused of collusion with landlords
In yet another example of how the capitalist class is conspiring with each other to extort as much as they possibly can from the working class, the DOJ’s antitrust division is probing whether a “rent-setting software” made by a Texas-based real estate tech company is facilitating collusion among landlords. “We are concerned that the use of this rate setting software essentially amounts to a cartel to artificially inflate rental rates in multifamily residential buildings,” said three senators who pushed for the probe with a letter earlier this month.

Today’s Action: Give thanks, while acknowledging the history of Thanksgiving!

Here at OD Action, we could not be more thankful for you — our community. We’re in constant awe and appreciation for the actions that you take on a monthly, weekly, and daily basis to fight for justice and equality, and we’re honored to be at your side on this journey to a better future.

Thanksgiving is a painful time for many, as it propagates the historical erasure of a continent of indigenous peoples and cultures at the violent hands of European settlers and governments. This is a holiday that normalizes genocide and ethnic cleansing, in a country that oppresses and silences Native communities and occupies indigenous territory to this day. We must acknowledge it as a present-day issue: we are in a state of active colonization.

This Thanksgiving, commit to something that supports Native people. Consider  donating to Four Directions, an on-the-ground, Native-led, voting-rights group fighting against indigenous voter suppression, or to Indigenous Women Rising, an organization fighting for equitable abortion access and reproductive care for Native communities. 

We cannot continue to allow today to be a day of willful ignorance, and that requires constant vigilance. Even today, Indigenous communities are some of the most vulnerable to poverty, illness, and unemployment. We will never be able to fully right the wrongs exacted upon indigenous communities by colonization, but we can do everything in our power to create the most equitable America possible going forward.


Required Reading for the Resistance. Actions that make a difference.
