Don't let Trump turn his back on Palestine refugees in need

The US government just made the decision to freeze millions of dollars to support support refugees and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) I want my tax dollars to support this work to provide critical education, healthcare, social services, and emergency protection to refugees in need.

Congress: Reject Trump's racism

Reject Trump's racism and all the policies that stem from it. Pass a clean Dream Act now, repeal the Muslim Ban, and protect from deportation those who had been covered by the Temporary Protected Status program that Trump is determined to end.

Oppose the border wall

The proposed expansion of the border wall is a disaster -- environmentally, economically, and internationally. Please oppose the border wall.

Help immigrant families who fled violence and disaster!

The Temporary Protected Status (TPS) program allowed me to stay in the United States to seek safety from violence from in El Salvador where I was born. As a working mother of four children who were born in the United States, I am calling on Congress to find a permanent bipartisan solution to protecting the 320,000 immigrants with TPS. Please sign my petition to ensure families like mine are not ripped apart and sent back to nations devastated by disasters and violent wars.

Pass a clean Dream Act now

Congress must deliver a clean Dream Act to provide legal protections for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants so cruelly impacted by the Trump administration's decision to end the popular Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Tell Congress: Puerto Ricans need government help now

Hurricane Maria ravaged Puerto Rico nearly three months ago, and hundreds of thousands of people still don't have power to turn on a light, stock a refrigerator, or take a hot shower. Thousands of homes are destroyed, rural areas are still isolated, small businesses are not operating, and there's an ever-increasing migration of Puerto Ricans to the U.S. mainland. It's clear that the federal government's response to the disaster in Puerto Rico has been painfully slow and not commensurate with the hurricane response in Texas and Florida. The people of Puerto Rico need help now—it's part of the United States...

Congress: Release the Fusion GPS transcripts

Three Congressional committees have heard over 21 hours of testimony from Fusion GPS, the firm that commissioned the collection of intelligence reports about Donald Trump’s ties to Russia. Much maligned by the President, some GOP members of Congress and the right wing media, it is time to set the record straight. Congress should release transcripts of the Fusion GPS testimony, so that the American people can learn the truth about its work and most important, what happened to our democracy.

VICTORY: Tribune Papers Spared From Koch Empire
