End Obstructions of Global Production of COVID-19 Vaccines and Treatments
We cannot end the COVID-19 pandemic anywhere if people in low and middle income nations are not vaccinated. Vaccine apartheid is fueling outbreaks that cost millions of lives, push millions of families into poverty, and lead to variants that spread more easily and infect vaccinated people.
Add your name to tell the Biden administration: Get the TRIPS waiver enacted, transfer vaccine technology, and allocate enough funding to scale up production of COVID-19 vaccines, treatments and tests worldwide. Sign on at networklobby.org/vaccinepetition.
Call Your Representative Now! Tell them to pass H.R.40 and establish a Reparations Commission!
Last month, H.R.40, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee’s bill to establish a commission on reparations, received a favorable vote from the House Judiciary Committee. This is the first time a House committee has considered the bill for recommendation to the House floor since it was first introduced in 1989 by Congressman John Conyers (D-MI). Now we have to make sure H.R.40 is passed into law to acknowledge and make amends for the sins of our past and present.
Systemic racism is ubiquitous in our country’s history and built into our systems and institutions today, putting Black people at a constant disadvantage. It’s time to right the wrongs of slavery and its continued impact. Call Your Representative Now: 888-422-4555. Tell them to pass H.R.40 and establish a Reparations Commission!
It’s Time to Put People Over Profit! Support Workers Striking for $15/Hour.
It’s past time for Congress to pass the Raise the Wage Act, but corporations don’t have to wait for Congressional action to respect their workers and pay them fairly. For the past decade, wages stagnated while the cost of living rose. In the past year, essential workers at food service jobs worked through the hazards of a pandemic, many without access to paid sick days. And still these jobs pay poverty wages — barely enough to survive. We know this is immoral.
Act in solidarity with workers calling for a $15 minimum wage. Email your Members of Congress to pass the Raise the Wage Act.
Call Your Senator Now! Tell Them to Vote YES on H.R.1280, the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.

Help us to transform our political system by calling your Senators TODAY at 888-496-3502.
Call Your Senator Now! Tell Them to Vote YES on H.R.1./S.1, the For the People Act
The For the People Act (H.R.1/S.1) is a comprehensive reform bill that targets the corrupting dynamics that threaten faith in our democracy. H.R.1/S.1 would protect voters’ rights, limit the influence of money in politics, shore-up our election systems, strengthen ethics rules for government officials and end partisan gerrymandering.
