Nightly Actions for Friday, April 14th, 2017

Just a short one tonight. Don't forget, I'm now taking weekends off, so you won't hear from me until Monday night. As always, you can check out my fellow members of the Action Alliance while you wait: https://www.actionalliance.co/
  • Education: Earlier this week, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos issued a memorandum rescinding Obama-era regulations that safeguarded student loan borrowers by simplifying the repayment process, assisting with debt management, and providing more oversight of loan-servicing contractors. With these regulations no longer in place, student loan defaults are expected to increase in the coming years. Use the following link to call DeVos and urge her to reconsider: https://5calls.org/issue/rec5bUzQuyLoG2YWA
  • Special Elections: The Democratic National Committee (DNC) refused to support James Thompson's campaign for the recent special election in Kansas. This is part of a growing trend of the DNC supporting only centrist candidates with opportunities to raise funds from corporate donors. Use the following link to send a postcard to the DNC and tell them that they need to get serious about the Resistance and support Democratic candidates in all special elections:

  • 45's Tax Returns: Breaking with every other presidential candidate in the past 40 years, 45 continues to hide his tax returns from the American public. Proposed legislation called the Presidential Tax Transparency Act would require any sitting president to release their most recent three years of tax returns publicly. Sign the following petition to support this legislation: http://act.demandprogress.org/sign/trump-taxes/
  • Public Lands: While 45 is slashing funding for our public lands, House Natural Resources Chairman Rob Bishop is pushing to sell off public lands and gut the Antiquities Act to block the creation of future national monuments. 45 and Bishop are even threatening to roll back existing monuments, like Bears Ears National Monument in Utah. Sign the following petition to tell Congress to protect our national parks and public lands:

  • Sean Spicer: This week, 45's chief spokesperson, Sean Spicer, said that Hitler "didn't even sink to using chemical weapons." Hitler murdered more than 11 million people, including 6 million Jews, many in chemical gas chambers. Sign the following petition to tell 45 that Spicer needs to be fired: http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/spicer-must-go
