We can’t let the GOP ban abortion — step up and protect our rights!


HIDE

First, the GOP passed horrible trigger laws in key states: criminalizing abortion providers, offering a bounty to those who report abortions, and outright banning abortion with NO exceptions.

Then, the Trump-packed Supreme Court struck down 50 years of precedent in the Dobbs decision, opening the floodgates for even more extreme anti-abortion laws.

Now, the GOP are just a few seats away from passing a nationwide abortion ban. The votes separating us from the complete removal of our reproductive rights is too close for comfort — we can’t let that happen.

Add your name if you agree with NextGen that turning out young voters is key to voting out anti-choice extremists!


Stop Republicans’ scheme to ban abortion rights nationwide!


HIDE

Lindsey Graham recently proposed a national abortion ban to the U.S. Senate. This is exactly the dystopian future the GOP wanted – and now, after decades of stacking the odds in their favor, they finally got their wish.

The only way to stop them? Vote these extremists out and elect pro-choice Democrats up and down the ballot. Mobilizing and empowering young voters is the KEY to protecting abortion rights.

Disbar the 15 state attorney generals who dispute the 2020 election!


HIDE

On September 21, a nonpartisan ethics group filed complaints against 15 different state attorney generals who used their offices to push Trump’s baseless conspiracy theories about the 2020 election.

The 65 Project filed the complaints against the AGs from Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah and West Virginia.

Demand the AGs who pushed Trump’s election lies be kicked out of office!

It is entirely unacceptable that so many in positions of such power and influence are willing to espouse Donald Trump’s appalling attacks on the legitimacy of our elections and clearly cannot be trusted to act responsibly when Republicans try to use legal action to steal elections again — which they have made very clear they intend to do the first chance they get.

If they’re willing to dispute the election, one shudders to think of what other parts of Trump’s heinous agenda they agree with — and it is certain they will abuse their positions to advance that partisan ideological agenda. We must kick them out of office and replace them with lawyers who will uphold their oaths to the Constitution.

Disbar the 15 state attorney generals who dispute the 2020 election!


Tell Congress: Support the Baby Food Safety Act


HIDE

Target: United States Congress

Parents in this country couldn’t find formula to feed their babies and now they have to worry about what is in the baby food they purchase. No mother should have to worry about what she is spooning into her babies’ mouths, day after day.

A congressional report found significant levels of toxic heavy metals in baby food — both conventional and organic. Lead. Arsenic. Cadmium. Mercury. These are poisonous to a baby’s developing brain and nervous system.

Representative Raja Krishnamoorthi (IL-08), Representative Tony Cárdenas (CA-29), Senator Amy Klobuchar (MN), and Senator Tammy Duckworth (IL) have introduced the Baby Food Safety Act to address this problem. This legislation would dramatically reduce toxic heavy metals in baby food, educate parents about the risks, and invest in researching ways to reduce toxic heavy metals in crops and soil. The Baby Food Safety Act would make it easier for parents to nourish their babies without unknowingly putting them at risk.

Tell Congress to protect our babies by supporting the Baby Food Safety Act now.


The work isn’t done – Washington state leaders must continue to act on climate


HIDE

Target: State legislators

Recently we had some monumental climate news come out of DC! The passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) is certainly a win to celebrate. But our work towards a greener future for Washington state can’t stop there.

The IRA fast-tracks investments into fighting climate change and establishing a clean energy future, making it possible for Washington to cut emissions further and faster than ever before. Yet in order to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, our state policymakers must continue pushing to limit emissions and create a greener and more equitable future for all Washingtonians.

Urge your state legislators to keep moving forward in the fight for climate action. Send them a message now!


‘Forever Chemicals’ are polluting your water!


HIDE

Target: Food and Drug Administration

Dangerous chemicals known as PFAS (per and polyfluorinated alkyl substances) are all around us, from plastic bottles and takeout containers to disposable bowls and plates. And now they can be found in our rainwater. 

A recent study by the University of Stockholm has found alarming amounts of PFAS in our soil and rainwater — amounts that often exceed EPA limits. As contaminated rainwater falls, it threatens to pollute our drinking water with these dangerous ‘forever chemicals.’

Nicknamed ‘forever’ chemicals because of their ability to stick around in the environment and our bodies, PFAS is associated with a wide range of serious health effects – from developmental problems to cancer — and can accumulate in the body over time.

The FDA has a responsibility to stop the spread of dangerous ‘forever chemicals’ before it’s too late! Sign the PFAS Public Health Petition and demand swift action!


President Biden: It’s time to tackle methane!


HIDE

Target: President Joe Biden

The White House is currently reviewing an updated draft EPA methane rule, and we are calling on President Biden to publish it as soon as possible to protect communities and our climate.

We need to slash methane pollution now! Raise your voice by signing Environmental Defense Fund’s petition urging the President to take immediate action! 


Tell the Virginia Department of Education not to restrict the rights of trans students!


HIDE

Target: Virginia Department of Education

The Department of Education in Virginia recently announced their upcoming policy changes for the school year, planning to completely backtrack on previous Governor Northam’s progressive work for Virginia students. The changes, aimed to affect over 1 million students, will force trans and nonbinary students into restrooms they don’t identify with. Students will be forced out of sports should they not play on teams they don’t identify with. LGBTQ+ students will be dead-named by their peers and teachers, unable to get a name change even with written permission from a parent. 

The policy would put an already vulnerable minority in even greater danger, whether it be mental or physical. Trans kids are already at a higher risk for suicide, regressive policies like the one Governor Youngkin has proposed does nothing but harm.

Add your name to tell Virginia to protect trans kids and reject the proposed policy!

Delegate Danica Roem was clear that she believes Youngkin’s policy blatantly violates their state’s human rights law, tweeting that the “action should be contested in court under the Virginia Human Rights Act.” She’s absolutely right. 

The Republican party is waging a war on at-risk children, and they’re breaking laws to do it. We must protect our LGBTQ+ youth from their holier-than-thou witch hunt.

Sign your name to condemn Youngkin’s proposed anti-trans policy!


Tell Biden to condemn Iran and demand the immediate release of two LGBTQ activists sentenced to death!


HIDE

Target: United States President Biden

Human rights groups allege that the Islamic Republic of Iran has sentenced two women, Zahra Seddiqi Hamedani, 31, and Elham Choubdar, 24, to death for their links to LGBTQ+ activists on social media.

An Iranian court has charged the women with “corruption of Earth” for promoting homosexuality, promoting Christianity, for communicating with media hostile to Iran, and for what are almost certainly trumped-up sex trafficking charges.

Demand Biden harness American diplomacy to save Zahra and Elham!

Seddiqi Hamedani was arrested in Iran attempting to flee to Turkey from Iraq’s autonomous Kurdistan region, where she had been tortured and imprisoned for appearing in a BBC documentary about the abuses faced by LGBTQ+ people in the region.

“Without international support, we have no hope,” says Shadi Amin from German-based Iranian LGBTQ group 6Rang. President Biden needs to show the world that the US government stands for LGBTQ rights, especially with the rising tide of anti-LGBTQ bigotry in our country.

Tell Biden to condemn Iran and demand the immediate release of two LGBTQ activists sentenced to death!


Demand FOX News suspend Tucker Carlson for calling for violence against teachers and LBGTQ+ people!


HIDE

Target: FOX News

The right-wing hysteria against LBGTQ+ kids and the people who support them is reaching a fever pitch, and of course, Tucker Carlson is one of the worst offenders. On September 19th, Tucker Carlson went on an extended rant against public school teachers, equating teaching any non-heteronormative identity as “children being used as props in the sexual fantasies of adults.”

But he didn’t stop there. In a downright terrifying finish, Carlson quite explicitly told parents they have a duty to fight back: “No parent should put up with this for one second, no matter what the law says. Your moral duty is to defend your children. This is an attack on your children and you should fight back.”

Demand Tucker Carlson be taken off the air for inciting terrorism against teachers and gay people!

Right-wingers are already calling in bomb threats to children’s hospitals for offering gender-affirming care to teens and we’ve seen them murder abortion doctors before in the past; the radical right-wing has made it very clear that they are rabidly hungry for political violence, and it’s only a matter of time before someone gets hurt or is even killed.

Demand FOX News suspend Tucker Carlson for calling for violence against teachers and LBGTQ+ people!
