Inaction is Unacceptable: Demand Senators Pass a #PeoplesBailOut NOW
Although the House passed the HEROES Act in May, the Senate has failed to pass another relief package, resulting in an interruption in benefits for more than 25 million Americans, leaving many of them unable to pay their rent, buy food or medicine, or take care of their families. This inaction is unacceptable. We must insist that our Senators do their job and pass a robust relief package in response to the ongoing crisis.  More

Demand a #PeoplesBailout & Access to Absentee Voting
We need you to take two important actions. First, our Senators need to hear from you on their late pandemic response. Tell Senators Capito and Manchin that our families need robust support now. Second, in this time of crisis, we need clarity from state leaders about how we can cast our ballots safely in the upcoming election. Demand that Governor Jim Justice and Secretary of State Mac Warner protect our health and our right to vote by making this option available to all West Virginia voters again in the general election.  More

Weekend Wake-up: Urgent Actions Needed Tonight!
State lawmakers seem hellbent this session on pushing their religious views into our public school system. In doing so, they are waging an onslaught against the rights of religious minorities. Religious instruction is the job of parents and faith leaders, not public school employees. And yet, FOUR bills are moving this session that would allow teachers to instruct from the bible. More
