The Women’s March Responds:
Trump plans to announce his Supreme Court Justice pick tonight. Women will be ready to #DefendRoe. We’re hand-delivering wire hangers to our Senators’ in-district offices all week to remind them what women have been forced to do without access to safe and legal abortions. Join us: bit.ly/defendroe

Note from Kamala Harris
I believe Congress has a moral obligation to stand up and stop the federal government from ripping children from the arms of their parents. We should be in the business of keeping families together, not tearing them apart.
Many of these families are fleeing violence and instability in search of security and safety here in the United States. It’s wrong to traumatize these kids further. Congress must take action right now.
Add your name if you agree:
Sign my petition demanding the Trump Administration stop separating immigrant children from their parents and demand Congress pass our new legislation to solve this moral crisis.
My heart breaks for these kids being separated from their families at the border — many are just frightened toddlers. Congress has to make ending this immoral policy a priority right now.
Our Sister District team is working with Mi Familia Vota (MFV) and Open Progress (OP) on an exciting campaign using texting to provide information about voter registration to Latinx communities. We just completed Nevada and are moving on to Arizona in June and then to Florida.
Since these are bigger states, we now have a role for English-only texters! As a volunteer, you will receive training and ongoing support from OP. You need a computer for this work. If interested, please contact Penni at email@example.com or Jude at firstname.lastname@example.org.
