Happy Monday, FAMily!
Today is the 26th of February–can you believe we are almost to March?
We have a lot of important information today–make sure you read on and take action. There are folks counting on us every single day to use our voices to protect them.
1. March 5th is the deadline that 45 gave congress to rectify the DREAM act. This is a cruel and unusual punishment and more proof that this administration doesn’t care about the promises it made during the campaign.
Call congress EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. and demand they protect these children–as the pro life party, it’s now time to prove they’re not just anti women or pro control and that they actually care about more than just fetuses.
2. Beto O’Rourke is a Democrat in Texas challenging Ted Cruz for his senate seat. There is a primary on March 6th filling this seat blue would mean a HUGE advantage for protecting innocent, marginalized and oppressed people from a legislative perspective. Please make a donation, and share his website on social media. If you can’t make a donation, please share his website on social media and urge others to donate and share. Cruz is a HUGE lapdog of the NRA and is not committed to any sort of reasonable legislation.
3. As we continue to see the brilliance of young students from Parkland FL taking on powerful groups like the NRA and this administration–it is worth noting that the proposed solutions to school shootings will disproportionately endanger the lives of PoC, especially black children. It is now more important than ever to support groups like The NAACP and Black Lives Matter, as well as these students fighting the NRA.
4. Finally, make sure you and everyone you know who is eligible is registered to vote. November elections are coming up quickly and many communities have primaries before then.
As always, we are so pleased and honored to have you with us. We hope you continue to commit to resisting and protecting those who are most vulnerable.
