Expel George Santos


George Santos has been indicted on 23 felony charges this year – including wire fraud, identity theft, false statements, and more.

Santos isn’t just a pathological liar, he’s a threat to national security. It’s time to end his political career and remove him from Congress!

The House of Representatives can expel Santos with a two-thirds vote, and a resolution to expel Santos has already been introduced.

So please take two minutes right now to send an email to your representative and urge them to support the resolution to expel George Santos from Congress.

(If your representative is George Santos, we’re sorry. Feel free to edit the email message below to reflect your thoughts on Santos’ “work” in Congress.)

Pass the Equal Rights Amendment


The Equal Rights Amendment was first introduced in 1923. It was passed by Congress in 1972. And it was ratified by the required 38 states in 2020.

And yet, in 2023, the Equal Rights Amendment has still not been added to the Constitution.

Extremist Republicans are laser-focused on blocking this widely-supported amendment from becoming the law of the land.

So please take two minutes right now to send an email to your Senators demanding they support the Equal Rights Amendment and finally add it to the Constitution.

Email Your Senators: End the Electoral College


Twice in the past two decades, the Electoral College has overruled the result of the national popular vote in highly consequential presidential elections.

And in both cases, Republican candidates claimed victory over Democrats who gained the support of a majority of Americans.

Now, to ensure that all Americans’ votes are counted in our national elections, Congress must do away with the Electoral College and move to a national popular vote.

So please take two minutes right now to send an email to your Senators demanding they support measures to end the Electoral College and use the national popular vote for presidential elections.

Email Your Senators: Pass the Green New Deal


Ed Markey and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just reintroduced the Green New Deal into Congress!

The climate crisis is a national and global emergency, and we cannot afford to wait any longer to take bold, progressive action.

So we need your help in commanding your Senators to pass the Green New Deal.

The Green New Deal would:

– Transition the U.S. to 100% renewable energy and achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions
– Create millions of new jobs in clean energy
– Ensure justice for communities on the front lines of the climate crisis
– Invest in public transportation, modern infrastructure, conservation, and public lands
– End the greed of the fossil fuel industry and hold them accountable

With the stakes of climate change rising higher and higher each year, we cannot afford to rely on slow, incremental progress.

So please take two minutes right now to send an email to your Senators demanding they pass the Green New Deal as soon as possible.

Call Your Representative: Pass the Freedom to Vote Act!


Congress will soon reintroduce the Freedom to Vote Act – and we need every single pro-voting rights candidate to support it!

This historic act would protect the right to vote, end partisan gerrymandering, combat election subversion, decrease the power of big moneyed special interests, and protect voters from future attacks on our freedom to vote.

If we are ever going to see progress on the issues we care about, we must have a democracy that responds to the needs and priorities of voters – not wealthy donors and corporate interests.

So please take 2 minutes to call your Representative today and demand that they support the Freedom to Vote Act.

Tell Walgreens to provide abortion pills


Walgreens just announced that they will NOT provide abortion pills in 20 states – including states where abortion is currently legal.

So please take two minutes to send an email to Walgreens executives and demand that they stand up to the GOP by providing abortion pills where they’re legal!

Email Ron DeSantis: End Book Bans!


Ultra-restrictive book bans are sweeping the nation as extremist Republicans try to control what our children read, learn, and think.

Now, far-right Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is leading Republican-led states to ban even more books from schools and libraries – and even threaten our teachers and librarians with criminal charges.

We cannot let tyrannical Republicans like DeSantis control our children’s education!

So please take two minutes to send an email to your Governor DeSantis and demand that he immediately end restrictive book bans and restore our children’s freedom to read.

Email Your Senators: Pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act


In 2013, the Supreme Court struck down a key provision of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, opening the door to voter suppression laws. And now, the Supreme Court’s conservative majority is poised to attack voting rights again. But Democrats in Congress have the power to SAVE voting rights before the Supreme Court acts – by passing the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act! Please email your Senators now and urge them to pass this historic act to protect voting rights.

Email your Representative: Investigate Ticketmaster-Live Nation


We’ve got bad blood with Ticketmaster after it mishandled Taylor Swift’s ticket sales – fans waited in virtual queues for up to six hours and were left with sweet nothing.

But that’s not all. Ticketmaster is also under investigation by the Department of Justice for potential violations of antitrust law (we have one word – karma).

Since Ticketmaster and Live Nation merged in 2010, they’ve acted as an unchecked monopoly and abused their power by charging outrageous service fees on ticket prices and taking little action to prevent bots from buying up tickets to resell at sky-high prices.

And Taylor Swift’s attempts to sell tickets for her Eras Tour showed Ticketmaster at its worst – while real fans were left waiting for up to six hours to get a chance at tickets, bots were able to bypass Ticketmaster’s security measures and snatch up seats, with over 100,000 tickets already posted to resale sites for exponentially higher prices.

It’s clear – Congress must use their power to investigate Ticketmaster-Live Nation and break up their monopoly for good.

Please take two minutes to email your Senators and command them to support an investigation into Ticketmaster-Live Nation.

Email Your Senator: Expand the Supreme Court


The far-right majority on the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade earlier this year, taking away abortion rights from tens of millions of Americans. Now, these conservative Justices could go even further by attacking the very pillars of our democracy – including voting rights and our federal election standards. With the current makeup of the court, our rights will constantly be under threat from this group of five conservative Justices. That’s why our Democratic Senate must take action to expand the Supreme Court and end the oppressive reign of far-right Justices.

Email your Senators: Pass the Judiciary Act and restore balance to the Supreme Court


Since Trump appointed an ultra-conservative majority of Justices to the Supreme Court, its rulings have gone directly against the will of most Americans.

Most recently, the leaked draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade and threaten abortion access across the country has brought attention to the extreme far-right ideology that rules over the current Court.

We cannot continue to have our country’s most pressing issues decided by a group of five conservative Justices – which is why Congress must pass the Judiciary Act to increase the number of Justices from nine to thirteen, bringing balance back to the Court.

Please take two minutes to email your Senators and command them to support the Judiciary Act, for the good of our democracy.

There are currently no federal laws that explicitly protect LGBTQ+ people from discrimination. This can, and must, change – the U.S. Senate must act now to protect all Americans’ inalienable right to EXIST. The Equality Act, the only piece of federal legislation to explicitly affirm LGBTQ+ civil rights, can rectify and protect LGBTQ+ individuals from these attacks at the state level.

There are currently no federal laws that explicitly protect LGBTQ+ people from discrimination. This can, and must, change – the U.S. Senate must act now to protect all Americans’ inalienable right to EXIST.

The ultra-conservative majority on the Supreme Court is poised to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision.

A draft opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito leaked on May 2, 2022. Justices Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett reportedly all voted in agreement.

Now more than ever before, we must demand abortion justice for all: abortion must be free, accessible, and available everywhere, in every state, for everyone.

This action comes 12 years after the Supreme Court’s ruling on Citizens United v. Federal Elec­tion Commis­sion – a ruling that reversed century-old campaign finance restric­tions and empowered corpor­a­tions and PACs to spend unlim­ited funds to influence elec­tions.

Tell Governor DeSantis: Veto the Parental Rights in Education Act


Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Act – also known as the Don’t Say Gay bill, which aims to ban discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity in the classroom – has now passed both chambers of the Florida legislature. Now, the bill only needs Governor Ron DeSantis’s signature to become law, placing extreme restrictions on LGBTQ+ topics in education.

We cannot allow far-right Republicans to decide what our children can and cannot learn at public schools – or allow blatant homophobia and transphobia to run rampant in Florida.

So please take two minutes to email Governor DeSantis and command him to veto the Parental Rights in Education Act, for the good of our students and our country.

End Gerrymandering: Stop letting partisan politicians silence voters


Right now, voting rights groups are suing to overturn Texas’ heinously gerrymandered new maps. These districts were drawn by the state’s Republican-led legislature — and if enacted, they would silence Latinx, Black, and AAPI communities and deny them the resources they need to thrive.

These maps may or may not hold up in court, but the truth is: we never should have gotten here in the first place. We know that when power-hungry politicians can hand-pick their voters, they prioritize protecting their own jobs — not communities’ needs.

If you agree that the Senate must do whatever it takes to end gerrymandering — including abolishing the anti-democracy filibuster — add your name today.
This action is sponsored by Common Cause and March On

Your Birthday Party Could Help Win the Georgia Runoffs


I work at an organization called Future Coalition, a national network of youth activists and their affiliated organizations. One of our main priorities for 2020 was getting out the vote for the general election. A key technique we used is relational organizing: utilizing personal relationships to inspire people to take action. Our personal networks hold shared values that allow us to connect on a deeper level than any strangers from a campaign can. Simply telling a friend that you’re voting can remind or convince them to vote. Relational organizing happens through the social interactions of everyday life. What better platform for relational organizing than a birthday party? In the spirit of innovation, I decided to throw an end-of-the-world-themed birthday party, complete with voter training and a textbanking session.
