Democracy is hanging by a thread. We now have fewer voting rights than we did in 1965, and 28 state laws have been passed which will restrict voting rights even more. These laws target people of color, the poor, and young people.
Tuesdays with Tillis and the Poor People’s Campaign are hosting an action at the Federal Building in Raleigh. Our goals are:
• Ending the Filibuster
• Passing all provisions of the For the People Act
• Full restoration of the 1965 Voting Rights Act
• Raising the minimum wage to $15/hr

Stop the Money Pipeline and coalition partners are launching: Deadline Glasgow – defund climate chaos in the lead up to the international climate talks that begin in Glasgow, Scotland on November 1. The Glasgow Climate Talks are a historic opportunity for the world to act on climate. When the Paris Agreement was signed five years ago, every nation on earth agreed to meet five years later and “ratchet up” their climate ambition. We’re now at that moment ― and it is vital that we hold the world’s leaders to their promises.
Hear about the plan to campaign hard through Glasgow and steps for activists to join the campaign. Speakers include Tara Houska of Giniw Collective, Kayah George of Indigenous Climate Action, Representative Rashida Tlaib, and Bill McKibben. More information and RSVP.
