Continue to Tell Speaker Paul Ryan we need action on #GunSafety!

We call on you to TAKE ACTION AGAINST GUN VIOLENCE AND schedule votes on the following measures: * Expand background checks on gun sales and strengthen the background check system. * Give the Department of Justice an avenue to block the sale of guns to suspected terrorists with a robust due process and appeals system in place. * Close the Charleston Loophole that allowed the Charleston shooter to purchase his weapons because his background check hadn’t been completed within three days, weapons he then used to kill nine people in their place of worship. * Ban military-style assault weapons and...

Support Occupy the Floor: #nobillnobreak

We support the Democratic Party representatives who staged a sit-in on the floor of the House. Appropriate and sensible gun control legislation is long overdue and must be introduced and passed by the U.S. Congress to help curb the epidemic of gun violence and mass shootings in America. It's time to sit down to stand up to the NRA. Tell Speaker Ryan to do his job and bring gun control bills to a vote.

EPA: Act on bee-killing pesticides NOW!

Bees and other pollinators are essential to our nation’s food supply, farming system, economy, and environment. These critical species are in peril, and we need to act now to protect them. A strong and growing body of science confirms that pesticide use is a significant factor in pollinator declines. I urge you to direct your agency to immediately suspend the use of neonicotinoids and protect at-risk pollinators such as bees, butterflies, birds, and bats.

Stand with Puerto Rican Families, Not the Vultures of Wall Street

Wall Street speculators continued to lend Puerto Rico money knowing very well that it had no access to bankruptcy court. Now some of our country's wealthiest hedge funds want their debts repaid. This request should be denied! They bet against the Puerto Rican people and their families, and they should not be rewarded. Please stand with the Puerto Rican people and take IMMEDIATE ACTION to allow for their government to restructure its debt. Any law or policy proposal should place the needs and interests of the Puerto Rican people first, and not those of greedy hedge fund managers.

Stop Monsanto's Dream Bill!

I urge you to reject Senator Roberts' (R-KS) bill that would ban states from requiring labels on genetically engineered foods (GMOs). I care about what I'm eating and feeding my family, and I won't settle for anything less than mandatory, on-package labels that clearly state "contains genetically engineered ingredients." Voluntary labeling or a QR code solution is not acceptable. Please listen to your constituents -- and the vast majority of Americans -- and vote NO on anything less than mandatory GMO labels.

Tell Congress: Cut off and investigate G4S, the Orlando Mass Murderer's employer

We were horrified and deeply hurt from the terrible violence in Orlando, which took the lives of so many, most of whom were Latinx. We were disturbed to learn that the Orlando Mass Murderer was employed by the controversial multinational security firm, G4S. We were even more shocked to learn that the Orlando Mass Murder's G4S co-workers reported him multiple times for using slurs against “gay people, blacks, Jews, and women” and also for “making threats of violence.” We urge you to stand against the bigotry and homophobia of the Orlando Mass Murderer by ending all current government contracts with...

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard: Co-Sponsor HR 4269

To Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, who represents Hawaii's 2nd Congressional District: Please join the other 125 Democrats who have co-sponsored HR 4269. This legislation would renew and strengthen the federal Assault Weapons Ban, which was in place from 1994-2004.

President Obama: Act on the Supreme Court's decision now!

Do not allow your legacy to be Deporter-In-Chief. You have the ability and responsibility to end your massive deportation program through a series of executive action alternatives at your disposal. We urge you to use all of your power to act immediately and provide relief to the maximum number of immigrant families. Please act now. This might be our last and best chance to get some kind of administrative relief for some time.

Protect the Boundary Waters

Mining companies are pushing to conduct a toxic form of mining called sulfide mining, next to the Boundary Waters. Runoff from this mining can create toxic sulfuric acid and cause mercury contamination -- both of which could flow into and pollute the pristine Boundary Waters area. We don't risk this natural treasure by allowing dangerous sulfide mining in Boundary Waters watershed.

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.
