Happy Monday, FAMily!
For those of you off of work/school because of the weather–stay warm. For those of you who aren’t–stay safe!
If you’ve been watching the Olympics, you know that America has been making some history. Mirai Nagasu is the first US woman to land a triple axel at the Olympics. Chris Madzder is the first American to win a medal in the Luge (silver). And our VP decided to sit during the opening ceremony portion dedicated to the unification of North and South Korea…yep that’s right–an American Vice President decided to use a national anthem as a means to protest what he considers to be unfair and disagreeable conditions and practices. Let that sink in for a second…
We’ve got some good stuff for you today–including our next installment of our Black History Month education series–which can be found here:

1. WE STILL NEED A DREAM ACT. Call Congress and force them to hold the President and administration accountable to campaign promises. No human being is illegal, and the very inception of our nation included “illegal immigration”–which Republicans seem to forget.
2. With Valentines Day just around the corner, take a moment to send a ray of sunshine to a sick child. Cincinnati Children’s Hospital is looking for folks to send some V-Day love to the children in their care. You can do so here:
3. Randy Bryce–who is challenging Paul Ryan for his seat in the House of Representatives is on an all out blitz to flip as many seats blue as he can throughout the country. Make a contribution if you can, or share his message if you can’t–he has a real shot at winning this seat and helping the wave of blue crash over DC.
As always, we’re happy to have you with us–and we hope you continue to feel the motivation to continue this difficult but necessary work.
