Action Center

Speaking out to hold our leaders accountable and let them know the public is watching is vital to participatory democracy. The progressive movement and the fight to defend the American Way depend on the grassroots engagement of everyday Americans. When we speak en masse with petitions, phone calls, rallies, and other actions, our individual voices are amplified, and decision makers from elected officials to CEOs take notice.

  • Stephen Miller has no place working on women’s issues at the White House!

    Stephen Miller, Trump’s senior policy advisor and architect of the anti-Muslim travel bans, has a demonstrated history of antagonism toward women, people of color, and Latinos in particular. Now he’s going to work with Ivanka Trump on women’s issues… despite his past opposition to efforts aimed at closing the pay gap and his fervent support for traditional gender roles. It’s genuinely absurd and disturbing for Stephen Miller to be working on women’s issues of all things.

  • Tell senators: Don’t confirm Mark Green for Army Secretary!

    This nomination is a major step back from the achievements of the last administration, which saw the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell and the appointment of the first openly gay Army Secretary. Green is rabidly anti-LGBTQ, has called being transgender "a disease", has blatantly made Islamophobic statements, and has even displayed alarming racism towards Latinos.

  • Pledge to Hold Republicans Accountable for “Going Nuclear”

    Democrats stood up to Republicans' bullying and extremism and voted to BLOCK the confirmation of Trump's nominee Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. But Republicans triggered an unprecedented rule change on a party-line vote that eliminated. This naked power grab MUST be remembered and Republicans MUST be held accountable.

  • Tell Senate Republicans: Don’t Go Nuclear!

    The fight over the confirmation of Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch has heated up tremendously and is coming to a head this week. At this point, 42 Democratic Senators have announced their opposition to Gorsuch and to voting for cloture on the nomination -- meaning they can continue debating the nomination and not have it brought to a final vote. But Senate Republicans would rather break the rules and eliminate the 60-vote bar, than roll up their sleeves and help to find a nominee who isn’t an extreme right-wing candidate chosen for Trump by far-right organizations.

  • Tell Congress: Don’t Defund Planned Parenthood

    Millions of women -- especially low-income women -- depend on Planned Parenthood for their life-saving services. Tell Congress: DO NOT defund Planned Parenthood!

  • Petition: Attorney General Jeff Sessions Must Resign

    The Washington Post reports that Attorney General Jeff Sessions spoke with a Russian official TWICE during the 2016 campaign and then lied about it to the Senate Judiciary Committee during his confirmation hearing. Sessions must RESIGN as Attorney General! Add your name now!

  • STOP Trump’s Extremist Supreme Court Nominee Neil Gorsuch!

    Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Neil Gorsuch is Donald Trump's pick for the Supreme Court -- an unacceptable and dangerous nominee who must be OPPOSED with everything we've got and stopped from receiving Senate confirmation.

  • Stop Trump’s delusional ‘voter fraud’ witch hunt, investigate voter suppression instead!

    Donald Trump is calling for a witch hunt into alleged “voter fraud” in the last election. Add your name to tell members of Congress and other public officials to stand against this witch hunt and investigate the real problem of voter suppression instead.

  • Tell Congress: Pass the Voting Rights Advancement Act!

    The Supreme Court eviscerated a key section of the Voting Rights Act with its 5-4 decision in Shelby County v. Holder. We need to restore full strength to the Voting Rights Act without delay.

  • Tell Congress: OVERTURN Citizens United

    It's urgent that we save our democracy from the scourge of big money unleashed by Supreme Court decisions like Citizens United v. FEC. Tell Congress to pass an amendment to the Constitution that will undo the harm of Citizens United and related cases!

  • Tell Republicans: No Steve Bannon in the White House

    No one associated with the white nationalist movement should be in the White House. Tell the GOP to stay on the right side of history and do everything they can to keep Bannon out of the White House!
