📞 CALL IN DAY 📞 @SpeakerJohnson and @HouseGOP are trying to undo @POTUS’ pause on permitting for new liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities – which endangers our health and safety while enriching Big Oil. 😡 Call 866-877-5552 to urge President Biden to stand up and #StopLNG!

New York has one of the weakest consumer protection laws in the country, leaving New Yorkers, especially low-income people & people of color, without the tools to challenge businesses that harm them, writes our Susan Shin & @NCLEJustice's Claudia Wilner.

@POTUS @SecBlinken @USAmbUN Actions speak louder than words! Stop sending bombs and weapons of war to a far-right government that is engaged in "indiscriminate bombing" of civilians to use your own words! International law and human rights must be universally applied!

The Security Council just approved a long-awaited resolution on Gaza, demanding an immediate ceasefire, and the immediate and unconditional release of all hostages.

This resolution must be implemented. Failure would be unforgivable.

Note the applause at the UNSC after the Gaza ceasefire resolution passed

This is extremely uncommon

Last time this happened was when de Villepin gave a historic speech against the Iraq war in 2003

It reflects the immense exasperation with Biden's efforts to keep the war going

A beautiful viral video of African kids speaking their names was followed by a Purim video by Israeli students showing us who they send to Gaza, and how their government, media and cultural institutions are replacing my Judaism with the white supremacy of our oppressors.

Today is #worldwaterday2024

A nation as wealthy as ours has the resources to make sure we ALL have access to safe, clean water.

My WATER Act would help fix our failing water infrastructure, clean up dangerous contaminants, & invest in the communities that need it most.
