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.

All Actions

  • Call Your Senators and Urge them to End the Filibuster and Pass the For the People Act!

    Far Right lawmakers in dozens of states are trying to pass laws that will make it harder for Black and brown Americans to vote, and in several states they are already succeeding. Currently, there is a bill before the U.S. Senate, the For the People Act (S. 1), that would prevent the worst voter suppression provisions from taking effect – but without urgent action by Senate Democrats, the bill is destined to fail when it comes up for a vote. Please make a call to your senator today to add your support to the record!

  • Urge the White House to Fight for Passage of the For the People Act!

  • Urge the USPS Board of Governors to Fire Postmaster DeJoy!

    Now that the Senate has confirmed all of President Biden’s nominees to the USPS Board of Governors, it’s time for them to take decisive action to save the USPS and FIRE Postmaster DeJoy!

  • Urge the Senate to Pass the D.C. Statehood Bill!

    For only the second time in United States history, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 51, the bill for D.C statehood, and sent it on to the Senate. Now we have to keep working hard to make sure that every Senator knows how critical it is that they support D.C. statehood.

  • Tell the Senate to Confirm Kristen Clarke!

    A champion of voting rights, a supporter of crime victims, defender against hate and violent extremism, and advocate of civil rights for all, Kristen Clarke’s career and lived experiences make her an exemplary candidate for the position she is nominated for and we must fight back to dispel these false attacks against her in support of her confirmation.

  • Tell the Senate to Confirm Vanita Gupta!

    A highly regarded former Justice Department official, Vanita Gupta has spent her career fighting for justice by rooting out corruption, defending democracy, and championing the fundamental rights of all Americans.

  • Tell Congress: Pass D.C. Statehood Now!

    Passing D.C. statehood in both houses of Congress should be a priority for all of us who care about equality and opportunity. The House and Senate must pass this bill and end the racially biased exclusion of D.C.’s citizens from full representation.

  • Investigate Steve Bannon’s Role in the January 6 Insurrection!

    Bannon seemed to know that something was going to happen. The question, now, is how much he knew – and how deeply he was involved in both the incitement and execution of that attack. Urge the Department of Justice to investigate Steve Bannon’s involvement in instigating the January 6 insurrection!

  • Urge the Senate to Pass the Equality Act!

    The Equality Act would extend fundamental civil rights protections to the LGBTQ+ community to prevent discrimination in individuals’ daily lives. But the Far Right is waging a fierce campaign to stop it from passing in the Senate, which is why we need to mobilize support for the bill quickly.
