Take Action

Tell Congress you vehemently oppose this cruel and brutal treatment of migrant children and families.

The Trump administration published appalling new rules last Friday that allow ICE border officials to jail refugee and migrant children in detention centers indefinitely. This is a violent and cruel decision that will result in children being locked up for months–or even years–in overcrowded, unsanitary, and inhumane facilities.

Take action to protect migrant children and their families by contacting your Congress members now. Demand that they oppose this vile rule and act immediately to close the camps.

The Trump-Pence administration is controlling what doctors can and cannot say to patients: we must take action right now to protect reproductive health care!

The Trump-Pence Gag Rule was designed to silence countless clinics and punish pregnant people. But, Congress has the power to reverse this decision. Call your Senators and demand they repeal it TODAY: 202-601-3441.

Gun Violence is a National Emergency: Demand a Senate Vote Now!

There have been 251 shootings in 2019. And all of them preventable. To say it is time to take action is a massive understatement.

No Time Limit on Equality: Tell Congress to Remove the Deadline for ERA Ratification!

The Equal Rights Amendment makes a simple promise: “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.”More than ever, it’s time to hold the nation accountable for fulfilling its commitment to equality for all.

Urge your Representatives and Senators to put women in the U.S. Constitution and pass the ERA today.

Shannon Goessling has been nominated to head the Office on Violence Against Women at the Department of Justice, an office charged with reducing violence against women and strengthening services to survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. Her hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee has been postponed multiple times and currently is not on any upcoming schedule. It’s our job to maintain the pressure so as to delay a hearing for the unpopular nominee as long as possible.

Tell your Senator to oppose Goessling for the Office on Violence Against Women today.

Petition: We Stand With Afghan Women’s Demands for Inclusion in the Peace Talks

Afghan women are demanding inclusion in the United States’ peace negotiations with the Taliban led by the U.S. Special Envoy Zalmay Khalilzad. The exclusion of women is a violation of the U.S. Women, Peace, and Security Act passed into law in 2017 as well as the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325. Both require the full participation of women in all aspects of peace talks.

Please send an urgent message to U.S. Senators and U.S. Representatives that you are outraged about the exclusion of Afghan women and the Afghan Government from the peace talks. Tell them you stand shoulder-to- shoulder with Afghan women and their fight for equality and human rights.
