RED Alert 8/13/17

REMEDIATE:

We mentioned this a few weeks ago and now there is some immediate action that can be taken to support the DACA youth from the Administration's anti-immigration efforts. There are bi-partisan efforts in the Senate (S 1615) and the House (HR 3591) that will make it harder (or impossible) for the President to end these programs - or allow Republican state legislatures effectively end them. Call your Members of Congress and tell them to support these bills and call Senator Durbin to thank him for being a co-author of the Senate bill.

More info from Indivisible.

EVENT:

Join Planned Parenthood at the Chicago stop on the 'Drive for our Lives'/'Save My Care' Bus Tour on Monday, August 14th at noon at Daley Plaza. While Congress is currently on recess, the GOP and President have given no indication they will stop their efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act and cut federal funding to Planned Parenthood.

Sign up for Monday's meet-up on the PP event page.

DONATE:

We are all horrified by the events of this past weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia. The racism, antisemitism, hatred, and violence of the white supremacist group is maddening. The tragic loss of life of Heather Heyer, one of the counter-protesters, in the cowardly automobile incident is incredibly sad.

Consider a donation to the Southern Poverty Law Center who are fighting these hate groups on many fronts.
