Take Action

Don't Deny Residency Status to Legal Immigrants

The Trump administration plans deny permanent residency status (i.e. “green cards”) to immigrants who are in the country legally, but have used any form of government assistance. Tell your senators and representatives to oppose this policy.

Oppose Plan to Detain Immigrant Families Indefinitely

The Trump administration said it would unveil a new rule that would allow migrant families to be held indefinitely, ending a procedure known as the Flores Settlement Agreement that requires children to be held no longer than 20 days. Tell your senators and representatives to oppose this unconscionable treatment of migrants and their children.

Say NO to SNAP Changes in MO!

An administration proposed rule would force families to make the difficult choice between improving their financial situation, and eating their next meal. Sign this letter to "Say No to Changes in SNAP Eligibility."

End Child Detention

Urge Congress to support legislation like the Shut Down Child Prison Camps Act today! Sign the petition.

Demand Funding for Gun Violence Research

Gun violence is a public health epidemic. To make our communities safer, CDC and NIH must have funding to conduct research to determine the causes of gun violence and develop policies to reduce the toll that it takes. Sign the petition.

Tell the Democratic National Committee: Hold a climate debate
