Call to Action: Immigration in MA, tell legislators and the governor to support ‘The Safe Communities Act’

Contact the chairs of the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security, the bill is sitting in this committee and will get nowhere if they don’t vote it out of committee and move it to the floor for a vote- DEADLINE Feb 7.
Among other things this bill, filed in both the MA house and the senate, operates within federal laws, despite what critics and opponents will say. Let’s be clear, this would not defy federal laws and subject us to the loss of federal funds. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

Do you want to be more involved in what we are doing?

We have events coming up in the fall that we need help organizing, advocacy that needs to be shared and we want to hold our first general meeting in September or October, one we are considering a postcard party for women where we will fill out and mail postcards to legislators at all levels of government advocating for the legislation and issues that are important to women and families.

CONFIRMATION HEARINGS WERE A LOVE-FEST – FOR GOP! Please Act. Please contact your Senators! Everything you need is here.

UPDATED Call to Action: Trump’s ties to Russia, investigations, Justice Dept violations and Trump’s taxes

UPDATE: News reports are now sharing that the Senate Intelligence Committee may be considering Trump’s ties to Russia and can investigate. Does Trump have financial ties with Russia? For that matter, does he have financial ties with China? Does he owe banks in these two countries or other countries money? Does he have investments in other countries? Does he have financial ties to Goldman Sachs? He certainly has hired enough of their past corporate executives? Does he have investments in any of the backers of the Dakota Access Pipeline? For that matter, does he have investment in his daughter’s clothing line? Does he have any lucrative investments? Is he broke? Did he even pay taxes last year? The year before? We don’t know. We can only know if we get his tax returns.
