  7. By Sunday: Demand a public hearing. The head of the Office of Government Ethics wants a public hearing on POTUS’s conflicts of interest. Chaffetz refuses. Rep. Will Hurd is the most endangered R on the Committee—call himhttp://americawillbe.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=91aef46e343db45653d78490e&id=c22c9a3353&e=de9eb980bb
  8. Sign this petition to tell Congress to pass Senator Warren's Presidential Conflicts of Interest Act: http://act.demandprogress.org/sign/warren-bill-trump-conflicts-dp/
  9. Any day now, Trump will announce one of the most far-reaching decisions of his presidency: his nominee for the Supreme Court seat the Republicans stole. Our senators need to know NOW that we won’t allow him to destroy generations of progress.

    Donald Trump is set to appoint a justice who will turn back the clock to the 19th century. He’s choosing from a group of judges hand-picked by extremist conservatives and their billionaire backers. It’s great news for Trump’s cronies, and scary as hell for women, People of Color, the LGBT community and working families.

    Unless we stop him, Trump will build a Supreme Court that will police our bodies and our bedrooms, but won’t pursue racial justice, protect us from gun violence or rein in corporate power. They’re trying to tear down everything we’ve accomplished for decades and strip away our rights. Visit this link to find and call your local legislatorshttp://www.weekly-resistance.online/
  10. Today, Trump signed Executive Orders to move the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines forward. Use this form to send him a message that we will stand with our allies and fight him every step of the way: http://click.emails.sierraclub.org/?qs=0afa6f66ae6035531e4fcf7ea52ea8b2ac0a40114a16240b5275f810fb0828b8442e1fe4712e8e8ab2736ea56336406d

  11. A North Dakota Representative proposed a law that would protect drivers who "accidentally" hit and kill activists. They even admitted the bill is aimed at water protectors at Standing Rock! Sign this petition to stop this insane law: http://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=IfZ.f&m=fwd2VD1Pq6Hj.d.&b=bLhkhJ7mnCewk6MsSY59pw
  12. Donald Trump has promised to expand oil and gas drilling, kill the Clean Power Plan and roll back some of our most fundamental environmental protections. It's up to us to show President Trump that we are ready to act — in and out of court — against any attempts to derail the progress we've made and force us down a path toward climate chaos.

    Urge Trump not to threaten our wildlife and wild places or reverse our progress in fighting climate change — and tell him that you're ready to fight his administration's disastrous plans every step of the way.

  20. Call on Donald Trump to reverse his federal hiring and pay freeze. Right now, veterans make up about 31 percent of the federal workforce in the United States of America. And what that means is that Donald Trump’s hiring and pay freeze hits veterans harder than almost any other group, including unemployed veterans who would have had a great shot at getting new jobs, thanks to President Obama’s Veterans Employment Initiative. Sign this petition calling on Donald Trump to reverse his federal hiring and pay freeze or to detail a specific plan immediately that will help put veterans across the country to work: http://action.votevets.org/page/m/139e3804/1cd0c479/3c309857/6dc14372/3386126707/VEsH/

  24. Stop Hate! — The U.S. Senate has started voting on Trump’s cabinet nominees. It’s an understatement to say that this isn’t a normal cabinet, nomination process, or election. These nominees represent and promote hateful ideals and policies that are harmful for our children and our economy. We cannot stay silent because these dangerous cabinet nominations hurt our children and families, threaten our economy, and tear at the fabric or our democracy. Join us in telling the U.S. Senate not to confirm a Cabinet of Bigotry.
