Long story short: tell your Congressfolk to extend the eviction moratorium, break up big tech monopolies, and pass the Counseling Not Criminalization in Schools Act, the Women's Health Protection Act, the Support Through Loss Act, the For the People Act, and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. 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 Congressfolk's phone numbers, or use the email/petition tools in the following paragraphs.
The Center for Popular Democracy helps you tell our President and your Congressfolk to extend the national eviction moratorium, which could help keep over seven million renters in their homes. President Biden has signaled that he'll let the moratorium lapse -- even though very, very little federal renters' assistance has found its way to renters thus far -- but surely he knows as well as you do that new COVID cases are skyrocketing, so perhaps he'll have a change of heart before the moratorium expires on July 31. Or, more likely, he'll hear from enough of us that he'll have to have a change of heart -- or our Congressfolk will hear from enough of us that they'll force him to have a change of heart. Not every change of heart comes on its own, after all.
Consumer Reports helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass a suite of bills that would help rein in big tech corporations. These bills would, among other good works, prevent big tech corporations from favoring their own products on their own platforms, let customers more easily move their data from one platform to another, prevent them from charging outlandish fees to customers when they try to switch to a competitor, and prevent them from buying up corporations solely for the purpose of ending competition -- plus the bills would provide additional funding to those government agencies that would enforce the bills, if they become law. These are all hard enough to oppose that more than a few Republicans have signed on as co-sponsors. That ought to give us a bit of a head start -- not that we should be complacent! -- so let's get cracking.
The Drug Policy Alliance helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass S. 2125, the Counseling Not Criminalization in Schools Act. This bill would get police officers out of public schools -- which are not safer because they're there, or else we'd stop hearing stories about how they're not! -- and use the money we'd otherwise spend on them to get more nurses and social workers in schools. Right-wingers say this'll result in "more dead social workers," but I think they underestimate how good social workers are at their jobs. And, really, what a thing to say about people, that they can't "handle" tough times. Here you thought conservatives were all about people being good enough to not need Big Gummint help! Clearly right-wingers only say they're "good enough" if they're the "right people," and only cops are the "right people" for them. But they shouldn't get all the say about everything.
Daily Kos helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 3755/S. 1975, the Women's Health Protection Act. With Mississippi having asked our Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, and with a majority of our Supreme Court justices looking for the right opportunity to do so, it's good to remember what Roe v. Wade actually does: it prevents states from restricting your right to an abortion if you need it. If our Court overturns Roe v. Wade, a lot of red states will rush to outlaw abortion. The Women's Health Protection Act would prevent that, plus it'd take down a lot of laws at the state level (like "heartbeat laws" and the laws that aim to close down most abortion providers in the name of "public health") that restrict access to abortion. If we pass this bill, we can prevent what right-wingers really want: a country that forces women to be breeders, and nothing more. Seriously, that's what they want. And that's an abomination. So let's prevent that.
Daily Kos also helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass the Support Through Loss Act, which would provide paid family/medical leave to anyone who suffers through miscarriage, pregnancy loss, or other barrier to beginning a family (such as an adoption falling through or a medical diagnosis regarding fertility). The bill would also fund miscarriage and pregnancy loss research via our National Institutes of Health (or NIH). This is a big deal, especially since people feel shame over losing a pregnancy -- and since more than a few nations have tried to charge women who have miscarriages with having had abortions. We have a lot to shame people over, but a miscarriage shouldn't be one of those things. Go after the folks who redistributed all your wealth upward to themselves!
Finally, 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. Plus Daily Kos helps you sign up to call West Virginians and urge them to urge their Senator, Joe Manchin, to vote for the For the People Act. And 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. These bills are our best chance to stop racist vote suppression and big corporate domination of our elections -- which is why right-wingers tell so many lies about them. They're afraid of the world we'd make. Why should they be afraid? If you can win arguments, you should win them. Maybe they're afraid they can't! But if you can't win on a fair playing field, then don't play.
