Jeff Sessions is a liar, a racist, and a white supremacist.Last week, Sessions testified before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee and one thing is clear — enough is enough. Sessions’ entire political career has been to undo major progress hard fought and won from decades-long work by Black people and communities of color. And he
Tell Congress: No legal immunity for the gun industry The recent mass shooting in Las Vegas was a tragic reminder that we are never going to address the epidemic of gun violence in our country without breaking the gun lobby’s control of Congress. Fortunately, three Democrats – Sens. Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal and Rep.
Thomas Farr has been North Carolina’s chief defender of voting laws that a federal court said “target African Americans with almost surgical precision.” His nomination to the longest judicial vacancy in the nation comes at the expense of two highly-qualified African-American female judges who were blocked from even receiving a Committee hearing.

Monday night on Twitter, ESPN SportsCenter host Jemele Hill called Donald Trump “a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself with other white supremacists.” Because of this, ESPN has publicly reprimanded her and the White House has taken the unprecedented step of calling for her to be fired – a clear assault on the First Amendment. 1 2 Tell

Not again. 12 years ago to the day we watched in horror as poor and Black communities in Louisiana were devastated by a natural disaster and left homeless and hungry while Congress debated whether or not to give them relief funds.1 We saw the same thing happen as low-income communities- many of color- were destroyed by Hurricane Sandy,
The petition to the Senate reads: “Sam Clovis is a racist climate-change denier with zero experience in food or agriculture policy. Reject his nomination to be chief scientist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture.” If you thought Donald Trump’s war on people of color and the climate couldn’t get any worse, think again: Trump has nominated
Add your name to the Marijuana Justice Act, which will remove marijuana from the list of controlled substances and look to reverse the decades of failed policies that disproportionately target communities of color. For decades, the failed War on Drugs has locked up millions of nonviolent drug offenders, especially for marijuana-related offenses. This has wasted
The petition to the FBI director reads: “Investigate whether Ivanka Trump fully disclosed her own, her husband’s and her brother’s meetings with Russian officials when she applied for her security clearance.” Donald Trump and his Republican lapdogs are doing everything they can to sweep his Russia scandals under the rug.
