Long story short: tell the Texas state legislature to reject an anti-abortion, anti-law and order bill; tell your Congressfolk to pass the For the People Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, the Equality Act; and tell your Congressfolk that you want results, not "bipartisanship." Use the tools in the upper right-hand corner of this page (or, if you're on a cellphone, the bottom of this page) to find your legislators' phone numbers, or use the email/petition links in the following paragraphs. And good hunting!
First things first. The Texas state legislature, not satisfied with suppressing voting rights and injuring trans children, continues its reign of terror with HB 1515, the so-called Texas Heartbeat Act, which is not only one of those bills that would make abortions illegal after a fetal heartbeat can be detected -- i.e., before most women even know they're pregnant! -- but would also allow anyone in Texas to sue any abortion provider for violating any of HB 1515's provisions. The bill's authors sell that as a way of keeping state law enforcement out of, well, enforcing this particular law like that's some kind of "compromise" or something, but we have a thing called "standing" in lawsuits for a reason -- to prevent precisely this kind of chaos where anyone who "feels" aggrieved by anything, ever, can sue anyone they like over anything they feel aggrieves them. Standing typically requires a) evidence of direct injury and b) some degree of certainty that a court can actually redress it. But once again, the party that constantly whines about "frivolous lawsuits" seems determined to create more of them with this anti-law and order bill. Progress American helps you oppose it.
Daily Kos, the Sierra Club, and People for the American Way all help you tell your Senators to pass H.R. 1, the For the People Act. Mob Boss Mitch McConnell (E-KY) says "100% of my focus is on stopping this new administration" -- again, apparently zero percent of his focus is on serving the good people of Kentucky! -- so let's contemplate what that "100% focus" would mean with regard to his plans to stonewall the For the People Act: it would mean state legislatures could keep drawing Rorschach-looking legislative districts that exclude individual houses on individual streets just so undeserving incumbents can be easily re-elected; it would mean states could continue to use bogus "databases" to pretend that citizens with common first and last names are voting in several states at once; it would mean state legislatures could continue to restrict early voting, mail-in voting, and automatic and same-day voting registration at their own whim; and it would mean no campaign finance disclosure of big donors even though virtually everyone in America wants that and such disclosure doesn't actually violate big donors' rights. So let's end the Age of McConnell by telling our Senators what they should really do.
Common Cause, People for the American Way, and the Daily Kos Liberation League all help you tell your Congressfolk to pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. What would the continuing Age of McConnell mean for this bill? It would mean our Justice Department could do next-to-nothing about states that continue to suppress votes. It's no accident that, after our Supreme Court's Shelby County v. Holder decision -- which eviscerated this power granted to our Justice Department by the Voting Rights Act -- that those very same Southern states our Court felt the Voting Rights Act now "unfairly" targeted made a slew of changes to their voting rights laws! These changes just so happened to cement Republicans' unearned advantage in those states. So if Mitch McConnell gets his way here, Republicans will eventually make it so that no non-white person anywhere can vote, not that they'd ever put it like that, of course.
The Daily Kos Liberation League and People for the American Way both help you tell your Senators to pass H.R. 5, the Equality Act. What will Mob Boss Mitch's "100% focus" on stopping this new Administration" mean here? It will mean that landlords can continue to refuse to rent to gay and transgender folks merely because they're gay or transgender, that banks can continue to refuse to serve gay and transgender folks merely because they're gay or transgender, and that states and localities can continue to keep transgender folks out of public restrooms merely because they find them icky. That may not mean much to you if you're not gay or transgender, but it would mean a lot to those who are, because they would continue to get pushed around by the law instead of be protected by it, as we all deserve. Ignore all that crap about boys playing girls' sports. I've gone into why it's crap a bunch of times already, and I won't go into it anymore. At some point, bad ideas have to die if they've lost the argument. And the folks who keep repeating them should be treated as whiners.
Finally, because they need to be told at least a million times before they get it, Daily Kos helps you tell your Congressfolk that you do not want bipartisanship if it means good legislation can't pass or only bad legislation can pass. Seems commonsensical, until you listen to Joe Manchin say the same stupid crap over and over again like he has no idea which political party just tried to overturn the election on January 6. Was he even in the building? Anyway, when did we hear about "the importance of bipartisanship" in 2017, when Republicans controlled every branch of government? Approximately never. We only hear about it when Democrats control every branch of government! Because Democrats might actually do something good for people! I'm sick and tired of living in the Age of McConnell, where "bipartisanship" means "Democrats and Republicans coming together to do whatever Republicans want." The American people matter, too. And we need to step up and remind them of that, every damn day for the rest of our lives if necessary.
