Save AMTRAK's Long-Distance Train Service

President Trump's budget eliminates the federal funding that is necessary to keep America's trains running from coast to coast. The National Association of Railroad Passengers warns that 220 cities will lose train service under this plan. Tell Trump and Congress this is unacceptable. We should be improving our rail travel system, which is already more environmentally friendly than air or auto travel, rather than decimating it.

Stop Arkansas' rush to execute 8 people in 10 days

Do not proceed with your assembly line of executions. Since the modern death penalty was established in 1976, no state has attempted four double executions in ten days. And the execution drug, midazolam, is so controversial for causing botched executions that Florida and Arizona have stopped using it. Halt this cruel and unusual killing spree – it violates basic decency and is not justice.

Vote No on National "Right-To-Work" Act S.545

“Right to work” is the name for a policy designed to take away rights from working people. Backers of right to work laws claim that these laws protect workers against being forced to join a union. The reality is that federal law already makes it illegal to force someone to join a union.

Tell President Trump and Congress - Federally Mandated Concealed-Carry is Dangerous for Communities and Schools

This legislation (S. 446 & H.R. 38) will allow extremely dangerous individuals to carry loaded, concealed guns in states that otherwise would have laws to prevent them from doing so. In essence, states with the weakest gun laws will now set the standard for the nation, allowing individuals with NO SAFETY TRAINING, with VIOLENT MISDEMEANOR CONVICTIONS, or with a demonstrated HISTORY OF DRUG OR ALCOHOL ABUSE to legally carry concealed, loaded guns in every state in the country. Additionally, this legislation not only affects our communities, but many of our K-12 schools, colleges and universities as well. Individuals who may...

Fire Sean Spicer immediately

Sean Spicer, Trump's chief spokesperson, said that Hitler "didn't even sink to using chemical weapons." Hitler murdered more than 11 million people, including 6 million Jews, many in chemical gas chambers. Spicer must resign or be fired for his false statement and continued misinformation.

Save NC Teachers - NC Senate Pass SB541 (HB-13)

The current law would put hundreds of experienced teachers and specialists out of work. Pass HB13 to fix the damage created by the current law OR fully fund the original bill to reduce class sizes and keep our specialists and electives intact

Governor Abbott: Do something about the toxic levels of lead in Ranger, TX

There are lead levels that are 28X the acceptable level in the water in Ranger, TX. Residents have to buy all their water for drinking and bathing purposes. To have a so-called "pro-life" Governor whose state infrastructure is such that Texans are being poisoned by their own water lets me know he is really pro-silence about the issue. Speak up Governor, don't you care about Texans?

VICTORY: Tribune Papers Spared From Koch Empire

When the Tribune Company went up for sale, it was widely reported that the Koch brothers were interested in acquiring its newspapers - including the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune.
