Long story short: tell CNN to ask tougher questions of U.S. Senators, tell your Congressfolk to pass the FAIR Act, and tell your Senators to pass the Women's Health Protection Act and the Protecting Our Democracy Act and to confirm Gigi Sohn as an FCC Commissioner. 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 and/or use the email/petition tools in the following paragraphs.
FAIR helps you tell CNN to ask tougher questions of U.S. Senators during live interviews. The occasion for this action alert is a softball interview CNN did with Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D?-AZ), in which CNN threw a bunch of granny balls at her, and didn't ask her about how her campaign donations might influence her actions or how she could possibly say she's serving Arizona when the good citizens of Arizona seem to disagree with everything she's doing. Big media poobahs like saying you can't ask tough questions of powerful people because then they won't come on your show anymore. I can think of a few words for that, like coddling and enabling. The powerful get too much of that in America. We have to remind our "liberal" media outlets that all that coddling and enabling is what makes good Americans hate them.
Consumer Reports helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 963/S. 505, the Forced Arbitration Injustice Repeal (or FAIR) Act, which would, as its title suggests, prohibit corporations from forcing you to resolve "employment, consumer, antitrust, or civil rights disputes" via an arbitration process that generally favors them, not you, and certainly not justice. (Forced arbitration clauses also generally prevent class-action suits; the bill prohibits them from doing that, too.) Do you like getting a Christmas gift that doesn't work right, only to find the corporation that made it or sold it to you won't let you go to court to redress this incident, as is your right? Then you will want your Congressfolk to make this bill into law. (Don't buy reports of four-digit "average arbitration awards," for when you lose, your "average" will be zero!)
The ACLU helps you tell your Senators to pass H.R. 3755, the Women's Health Protection Act. Our Supreme Court has allowed clinics to sue over Texas's notorious SB 8, but has inexplicably left the law in place while those suits work their way through the courts; only the Women's Health Protection Act will protect a woman's right to control her own damn body, and it would do a good job protecting it, both from state-level bans and from state-level obstacles (like forced ultrasound laws, laws allowing anti-abortion clinics to give false advice, and laws requiring more from abortion clinics than they require from any other health care facility). Don't believe the hype that Susan Collins wants to help codify Roe v. Wade into law, because she's already said this bill goes too far; the best way to change her mind is to flood her phonelines.
Public Citizen helps you tell your Senators to pass H.R. 5314, the Protecting Our Democracy Act. This bill would stop future Presidents from profiting from their office, abusing their pardon power, declaring "national emergencies" whenever their ego gets bruised, and fire Inspectors General whenever they feel like, to name just four injuries Donald Trump did to this country while President. And don't brook any nonsense about how you're "rehashing the past" if you support this bill, because under that "logic," one could reject pretty much any attempt to make anything better in America! Indeed, it's almost like that's the idea! Besides which, he's running in 2024 -- he hasn't made it official, but c'mon -- which means his evil deeds are not the exclusive property of "the past."
Finally, Free Press helps you tell your Senators to confirm Gigi Sohn to be our fifth FCC Commissioner. Our Senate confirmed Jessica Rosenworcel as FCC Chair earlier this month; now they just need to confirm Ms. Sohn, and we can finally realize our dream of getting net neutrality back. That is, of course, exactly why Senators Tillis (R-NC) and Sullivan (R-AK) put a hold on her nomination earlier this month! But literally the only people who don't support net neutrality in America are a) corporate lobbyists and b) the politicians who enable them -- everyone else, conservative to liberal, supports an internet where big corporations don't get to dictate to you where you can go. It ain't just net neutrality at stake, either -- it's also all that infrastructure bill broadband investment our FCC has to manage. So let's get to it.
