Long story short: tell your Congressfolk to pass the College for All Act and the Yemen War Powers Resolution and expand Social Security benefits. 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.
Roots Action helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 2730/S. 1288, the College for All Act, which would (as its title suggests!) help all Americans get a college education without taking on a mountain of debt. How would it do that? Mainly by eliminating tuition and fees for all students at community colleges, as well as for children of working families at public colleges and universities, but also by making the Pell Grant program permanent and expanding its benefits so that students from working families can cover more of their living expenses. Remember: putting our children into a debt pit they’ll never get out of ain’t investing in our future.
Peace Action helps you tell your Senators to pass the Yemen War Powers Resolution, which would end our involvement in the Saudi/UAE war on Yemen, a war that has left millions of good Yemeni on the edge of famine and killed a lot of the world’s best fighters against al-Qaeda. How is it that Our Glorious Elites abandon the Kurds and the Houthi when they’re some of the best fighters against al-Qaeda on Earth? Perhaps that question answers itself! But if we don’t want to wage war in Yemen, why are we still doing it? And why are our Congressfolk abandoning their Constitutional duty to declare war? If they won’t do their job, we just have to get in their grills until they do.
Finally, the Juggernaut Project helps you tell your Congressfolk to increase Social Security benefits. Close to half of our seniors can’t live on Social Security alone, and if your right-wing uncle tells you they should have gotten a job with a good pension, remind him, kindly or otherwise, that not that many jobs come offer pensions anymore – and the ones that do leave too much of their pension management to banksters! It’s almost like banksters are trying to cripple our pensions while walking away with massive unearned fees for their “performance.” And that’s why we don't rely on them, and instead fight to strengthen those programs we worked for, paid into, fought for, and deserve to enjoy in our later years.
