Senate Budget Vote a ‘Deep and Painful Disappointment’

Posted October 20, 2017 by MomsRising

The budget the U.S. Senate passed today would leave millions of working families worse off than they are right now. This vote undermines our country’s values and economy by prioritizing tax cuts for the wealthy while leaving low-income families to fend for themselves. Its $1.5 trillion in tax cuts for the wealthy are indefensible, especially [...]

Back to School (-to-prison pipeline)

Military Families - Voice Your Opposition to World War III

Posted October 11, 2017 by Martina Leinz

Voice.  We all have one, it’s time we use it.  We must speak out about the injustices and dangers the Trump administration poses from attacks on our healthcare, our immigrant and LGBTQ communities, and our reproductive rights, to our disastrous foreign policy.  And it is that latter point that I want to focus on now.    Since [...]
