Nightly Actions for Monday, March 13th, 2017

Healthcare - Affordable Care Act

By now you've heard all about the Republican plan to "replace" the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the "American Health Care Act," which would lead to massive tax breaks for the rich and loss of healthcare for millions of Americans. Well, today, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reported that the new plan, which is being called "Trumpcare" by the media, but which I like to refer to as "Don't Care," would cause 24 million Americans to lose their health insurance by 2026. Here's how you can speak out against Don't Care and help protect the ACA.
Immigration - ICE Raids

45's executive orders have led to thousands of undocumented immigrants being detained and deported by ICE agents in continuing raids and a culture of fear and xenophobia. Here's how you can help fight 45's anti-immigrant agenda and support immigrants in your community.
  • Share the Notifica app. Notifica is a new smartphone app that acts as a portable panic button for immigrants targeted by raids. It allows people to select contacts they would want to notify in case of emergency and pre-load personalized messages to each recipient. A single click deploys the messages by text in less than two seconds. Read more here and share this link with your friends and family: http://notifica.us/
  • Sign a petition. In February, Senators Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth introduced legislation rescinding 45's mass deportation executive order. Sign this petition to support this legislation: http://action.dickdurbin.com/page/s/trump-deportation
The Environment

Last week, newly-elected EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt stated that he does not agree that carbon dioxide is "a primary contributor" in climate change, going against 97% of scientists, including those in his own agency, who agree that carbon dioxide is in fact a primary contributor. Today, the American Meteorological Society wrote a letter to Pruitt disputing his misinformed claim.

With a climate-denier running the EPA and 45 and Republicans in Congress working to repeal important environmental regulations—and even eliminate the EPA entirely—it's clear that our environment is under attack. Here's how you can help protect it.
45's Nominees - Neil Gorsuch, Supreme Court

The Senate Judiciary Committee will begin confirmation hearings on Gorsuch on March 20th. Gorsuch is an extreme anti-choice, anti-LGBT judge with a history of interfering with reproductive rights and health and ruling against students with disabilities. Here's how you can help block his confirmation:
Gun Violence

Republicans in Congress are trying to make it easier for people to purchase guns despite mental illness and lack of thorough background checks. Here's how you can help stop them.
