Tell Secretary Kelly: Extend immigration protections for Haitian families now!

Will you sign and share this petition urging DHS Secretary John Kelly to renew the Temporary Protected Status of thousands of Haitian families before it's too late?

Dear MoveOn member,

Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly has until Tuesday, May 23, to renew an immigration program that shields thousands of Haitians from deportation. If he does not renew this program, thousands will be deported.1

Will you sign and share this petition urging DHS Secretary John Kelly to renew the Temporary Protected Status of thousands of Haitian families before it's too late?

We demand that Secretary Kelly stop the deportation of thousands of Haitian families by renewing their Temporary Protected Status immediately!

Known as Temporary Protected Status, or TPS, the program currently allows some 50,000 Haitians to work in the United States while keeping them safe from Donald Trump's deportation force.2

If Secretary Kelly does not renew TPS for Haitian families, then thousands of families would be forced to return to a country that is dealing with a severe food crisis and the aftermath of two major earthquakes.

We cannot allow Secretary Kelly and Donald Trump to continue to terrorize immigrant communities across the United States! Please join me in demanding that Secretary Kelly take immediate action and renew Temporary Protected Status to Haitians.

Click here to add your name to this petition, and then pass it along to your friends.

Thanks!

Whoa, Resistance Summer is taking off!

Can you apply now, or forward this application to someone you know who'd be a great volunteer MoveOn Mobilizer this summer?

Dear MoveOn member,
 
In the midst of one of the most remarkable political crises in decades, it's no surprise that we're getting massive national interest in Resistance Summer—with over 1500 MoveOn members like you already applying around the country to become Resistance Mobilizers and organize your communities over the months ahead! 
 
However, we are still looking for more Resistance Mobilizers across the country.
 
Get your application in now, before our Monday application deadline, or forward this email to a friend of yours who you think would be a great MoveOn Mobilizer. It will take only five minutes to complete part A of the application.
 
Thanks for all you do.
 
—Gabriela

Dear MoveOn member,

Resistance Summer is coming.

Every day brings new attacks on our democratic institutions—including the latest revelations Donald Trump may have obstructed justice, yet again, by asking James Comey, (formerly) the head of the FBI, to end an ongoing investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's ties to Russia.This is on top of attacks on health care and voting rights, shutting out the free press—the list goes on.

The only way out of this disaster is to organize every community in the country. And that’s what Resistance Summer is all about. By organizing this summer, we can force politicians to stand up to Trump this year, and build up to a progressive tsunami in 2018.

That’s why we’re looking for 1,000 volunteer MoveOn Mobilizers to join us for Resistance Summer. As one of these volunteer leaders, you would spend an average of 5 hours each week organizing your community, receive personalized coaching from a nationally-renowned trainer, build relationships with a cohort of 25 other Mobilizers in similar communities, and receive a small stipend ($150/month) to cover the costs of organizing.

Apply now to lead the Resistance in your local community this summer—or forward this email now to someone you know who’d be great for the position.

The damage President Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress have already done to our democracy will take years to unwind—and the urgency to reclaim our government is unprecedented. Consider: Donald Trump asked the nation's top law enforcement official to end an ongoing federal investigation, and when Trump didn't get what he wanted, he fired him. Meanwhile, the administration is dismantling key federal agencies like the EPA, voter suppression efforts are rampant, and hundreds of right-wing extremist judges are waiting to be appointed to life-long posts. Far from serving as a check or balance in the face of possible treason, Congress is acting as an accomplice.

Through it all, though, there is hope. Our Resistance movement has swept the nation, mobilizing millions of people who’ve never seen themselves as political before. We’ve successfully stopped the Muslim ban and have so far turned repeal of Obamacare into a toxic third rail that many Republicans fear.

The MoveOn Mobilizer’s mission? Turning the heat up even further. This summer, we need town halls flooded with protesters, phones ringing off the hook, voters registering in unprecedented droves, and much, much more. You don’t need political experience—all you need is commitment and the desire to put in the hard work to organize your community—plus 5-10 hours a week to dedicate to the Resistance from June 15 to September 15. In that time, Mobilizers will go through a structured training program and, with expert support, organize one event each month over the summer.

So stop for a moment right now and think: Who do you know would be a great MoveOn Mobilizer for Resistance Summer? Is it you? A friend, family member, or colleague?

Thanks for all you do.

—Vicki, Anne, Brian, Justin, and the rest of the team

P.P.S. Tonight's news about a special prosecutor to investigate Trump's Russia ties is an important step in our pursuit of the truth, and proof that our pressure is working. But it's not enough, as we keep up the fight for a full and immediate investigation including an independent commission and the public testimony of James Comey about Trump's obstruction of justice. Yet, this step forward is a reminder that grassroots organizing can work, and we'll keep up this and other fights throughout Resistance Summer. Apply now.

Senate: Add six more women to the Senate health care working group

Will you sign and share my petition demanding that Mitch McConnell add six women and remove seven men from the Senate working group on health care?

Dear MoveOn member,

I'm Eve Hurwitz, a fellow MoveOn member in Annapolis, Maryland, and I started a petition to Sen. Mitch McConnell and the United States Senate, which says:

Women are 51% of the United States population. Yet there are 14 men and just one woman on the working group that is drafting the Senate bill on health care. We demand equal representation for this bill. Add six women to the health care working group and remove seven men.

Women represent more than half the population of the U.S. and deserve to be represented in the working group writing the health care legislation. 

Will you sign and share my petition demanding that the Senate working group on health care add six women and remove seven men so there is equal representation?

Earlier this month, Mitch McConnell announced that there was a team of 13 Republican men overseeing the nation's health care policies with no input from women. It was absolutely unconscionable. After Sen. McConnell's announcement, Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski expressed dismay by telling reporters, "I just wanna make sure we have some women on."1

And only after massive public outcry did Republican senators invite one woman to join the committee—Sen. Shelley Moore Capito—and it's unclear if she will remain on it permanently. Making matters worse, they also invited Sen. Ron Johnson to join permanently, making the permanent working group 14 Republican men.2,3

Fourteen Republican men and only one woman charting the fate of our entire health care system is not acceptable. Click here to sign the petition demanding Mitch McConnell have equal representation on his Senate health care committee.

Amid fears of pre-existing conditions and cuts to Medicare, this bill is extremely unpopular to Republicans and Democrats alike—only 21% of Americans surveyed by Quinnipiac University approved.4

The Congressional Budget Office also hasn't yet scored the Trumpcare 2.0 bill passed by the House earlier this month. Yet its score is reportedly going to be even worse than the assessment of the House's first health care overhaul bill introduced in March, in which estimates were that 24 million more Americans could be uninsured by 2026, compared to the current healthcare system.5

Click here to add your name to this petition, and then pass it along to your friends.

Thanks!

—Eve Hurwitz

Taking the Resistance to the next level

Obstruction of justice: Call now

Yesterday, The New York Times reported that Donald Trump asked FBI Director James Comey to shut down an investigation into his Michael Flynn, Trump's former National Security advisor. Yesterday, The New York Times reported that Donald Trump asked FBI Director James Comey to shut down an investigation into his Michael Flynn, Trump's former National Security advisor.

Dear MoveOn member,

Yesterday, The New York Times reported that Donald Trump asked then FBI Director James Comey to shut down an investigation into Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security advisor.1

Make no mistake: This is huge—it’s clear obstruction of justice. Even some Republicans in Congress are beginning to say that, if true, these revelations will warrant impeaching Trump.2

We need to see the Comey memo. We need Comey to testify publicly. A special prosecutor must be appointed to get to the bottom of this. And we need a full, independent investigation launched immediately to get all the facts before Republicans can stamp out this smoldering ember.

Please call your lawmakers in both the House and Senate right now. Here's where to call: 

  • Representative Gregory W. Meeks - (202) 225-3461
  • Senator Charles E. Schumer - (202) 224-6542
  • Senator Kirsten E. Gillibrand - (202) 224-4451

Tell the person who picks up the phone that you are a constituent and where you live. If you leave a message, be sure to include your name and full mailing address, so that they know that you are a constituent. Here's an example of what you might say:

"I'm outraged by the reports about Donald Trump interfering with an FBI investigation. Comey must testify in public, and all related documents must be released. A special prosecutor must be appointed to get to the bottom of this. If news reports are true, this is obstruction of justice, and Congress must impeach." 

After calling, click here to tell us how your call went. We'll make sure to tell members of the media how many calls MoveOn members are making today.

News reports say that this could be the first of numerous memos Comey wrote after meetings with Trump. And the case for an independent investigation was already boiling over even before this week's news broke.3 If Trump committed obstruction of justice, he needs to be impeached.

We're closing in on holding Trump and the GOP accountable for Trump's toxic and corrupt presidency. Let's keep demanding the truth and keep the momentum going.

Thanks for all you do.

Here's how we start to hold Trump accountable

Trump should be in deep trouble. According to breaking news from The New York Times, Donald Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey in February to drop the investigation into his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn. Donald Trump should be in deep trouble. According to breaking news from The New York Times, Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey in February to drop the investigation into Michael Flynn, his former national security adviser.

Dear MoveOn member,

Donald Trump should be in deep trouble. According to breaking news from The New York Times, Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey in February to drop the investigation into Michael Flynn, his former national security adviser.1

Trump obstructed justice last week by firing Comey, who was in charge of investigating his campaign's possible collusion with Russia. He's accepting foreign payments to his businesses in possible violation of the Constitution. We learned just within the last 24 hours that Trump revealed classified information to Russia. And now we find out he may have obstructed justice yet again by asking the head of the FBI to end an ongoing investigation?!2

And yet, despite all this, Republicans in Congress are refusing to create an independent commission or appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Trump's reckless administration and campaign.

What more will it take for Republicans in Congress to finally put our country before their party and act to hold Trump accountable? Two things:

First, Trump must lose support among Republican voters.

And second, Republicans need to start losing congressional seats that they've long held, making it clear to them that the survival of their congressional majority is at risk.

That's why winning next week's special election to fill an open House seat in deep-red Montana is so critical.

The race pits a populist, progressive Democrat, Rob Quist, against a billionaire Republican who's closer to Washington lobbyists than everyday Montanans.

Quist has a real chance to win. While he's trailing the Republican candidate, Greg Gianforte, by six points in a recent poll, Quist has the momentum and is closing the gap with just nine days left.3

MoveOn is pulling out all the stops to elect Quist. But there are just a few days left to chip in while the Quist campaign and MoveOn can put your money to use to win this election. Will you chip in $6 to the Quist campaign and MoveOn's efforts to elect him?

Yes, I'm in! I'll chip in right now to help Rob Quist win on May 25.

Candidates like Rob Quist don't come around that often. As he says in his ads, "There are nearly 300 millionaires in Congress, but not one Montana folk singer." He's a supporter of Medicare for All, believes in protecting public lands, is an unequivocal champion of reproductive freedom, and he's ready to take on the millionaire interests and the lobbyists they support. He's also loudly calling for an independent investigation of Trump's ties to Russia and his firing of James Comey. 

By electing Rob Quist, we're not just sending a message to Republicans in Washington that their days in office are numbered, we’re also sending a message to the Democratic Party that these are the kinds of candidates that need to run.

MoveOn is launching a blitz of online ads across the state targeting independent voters, letting them know that Quist's opponent sides with Washington lobbyists over regular Montanans.

We’re also sending hundreds of thousands of get-out-the-vote texts to progressive voters and partnering with groups like Democracy for America and Swing Left to make thousands of calls to support the insurgent and exciting Quist candidacy.

We don't know what the next few days will reveal about Trump's obstruction of justice, and you can be sure MoveOn members will continue to fight for an independent investigation into Trump's foreign and financial entanglements. But making a difference in this race is something we can do right now.

With just nine days left, we are running out of time to accept donations and put them to good use. In a state like Montana, your donation will go a long way, which is why we’re asking:

Will you join thousands of other progressives and split a donation between Rob Quist's campaign and MoveOn's efforts to elect him? Click here to chip in $6—or whatever you can afford.

Thanks for all you do.

FW: I have a bridge to sell

Hi Eddie—I just wanted to make sure that you saw my email from the other day. I've got a bridge to sell to anyone who believes Donald Trump's claim that he fired FBI Director James Comey because Comey wasn't fair to Hillary Clinton.

Hi Eddie—I just wanted to make sure that you saw my email from the other day.


Dear MoveOn member,

I've got a bridge to sell to anyone who believes Donald Trump's claim that he fired FBI Director James Comey because Comey wasn't fair to Hillary Clinton.

Trump fired Comey because the FBI was getting closer—by the day—to the truth about Trump's ties to Russia during the 2016 campaign.

Just days before he was fired, Comey had asked for more resources for the investigation.1 And prosecutors had just issued grand jury subpoenas for associates of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.2

Trump is not just a liar (although that's well established). He may also be a traitor. And for the sake of our democracy, we need to know the full truth.

Republicans have, to put it politely, not led the way in doing what's necessary to protect our democracy. It's up to us to stop this cover-up—which means serious, ongoing grassroots pressure to force Senate Republicans to authorize a nonpartisan, independent investigation.

MoveOn has launched a powerful campaign to do whatever it takes, for as long as it takes, to get the truth out and hold Trump, his associates, and his enablers accountable—and to make it clear to those Republicans who refuse to do the right thing that their seats and political careers are on the line.

Will you chip in $3 to MoveOn to stop the Trump cover-up?

Yes, I'll chip in to fund the nonstop work MoveOn will keep driving forward to demand the truth about Trump.

The FBI is meant to be an independent agency, one that's beyond partisan politics—which is why its directors are appointed for 10-year terms that span multiple presidents. And presidents are expected to respect this promise of independence.

But Trump, who has barely any knowledge of history and little respect for the Constitution and our nation's democratic values, has fired the FBI director, the person in charge of investigating Trump and his aides.

This is yet another instance of Trump acting like a despot—threatening journalists, judges (even an entire circuit court), and unspecified "enemies;" using his presidency for personal gain; and lying repeatedly to the American people.

As soon as news broke that Trump fired Comey, my friends at MoveOn began working—at lightning speed—to ramp up the pressure on Congress to establish an independent commission to investigate Trump. They launched a petition and a series of rapid-response videos within hours, worked with partners to organize a protest with hundreds of people outside the White House at noon the day after the news broke, and supported members in holding dozens of protests at Senate offices around the country. Their leadership now—and in the weeks and months ahead—is essential.

But let's not kid ourselves. Republicans are refusing to the right thing, and it's going to take a huge effort to force them to act—or to throw them out of office if they won't.

So the bottom line is this: We need enormous, sustained leadership to expose the truth about Trump. The good news? It's the kind of leadership that MoveOn and its millions of members excel at. But it will require serious resources. That's why I'm asking you to chip in to MoveOn today.

Please, click here now to join me and chip in $3 to help MoveOn stop the Trump cover-up.

This is not business as usual. We have to make our voices heard. Our democracy is on the line.

Thanks for all you do.

–Robert Reich
