Important survey: How do you feel about impeachment?

Dear 5849376,

We need your input on something really important – impeachment.

Donald Trump is a threat to our families, our communities and our democracy and has committed multiple impeachable offenses. At CREDO, we believe that Democrats should use their power to hold him accountable – starting with opening an impeachment investigation in the House.

We can't achieve that goal unless Democratic leaders get on board. And they won't get on board unless they feel massive pressure from progressives like you – which is why we want to know where you stand. If you think House Democrats should act, we'll need your help! If you don't, we really want to know why.

Do you think that House Democrats should start impeachment proceedings against Trump?

Yes, House Democrats should start impeachment proceedings against Trump.
No, House Democrats should not start impeachment proceedings against Trump.

Thanks for taking the time to let us know where you stand,

Heidi Hess, Co-Director

Sign the petition: Tell House Democrats to impeach Trump and Barr

House Democrats must impeach William Barr and Donald Trump

The petition to House Democrats reads:
"Defend our democracy. Immediately begin impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump and Attorney General William Barr."

Dear 5849376,

Impeach Barr and Trump

The entire world just watched Attorney General William Barr participate in a blatant cover-up on behalf of the racist autocrat who occupies the White House.

Barr lied to millions of Americans by declaring Trump's innocence but we now know that Trump is far from exonerated. Mueller put full responsibility for checking Trump's corrupt use of power and defending our democracy on Congress. Now we need to make sure that Congress acts.

House Democrats must immediately act to defend our democracy. Click here to sign the petition to demand they start impeachment proceedings against Barr and Trump.

Barr's press conference was an obvious attempt to spin the public's view of the report and control the media cycle before Congress, or the American people, got a chance to see the report. The Attorney General is supposed to be the chief law enforcement officer of the United States, yet Barr is acting as the president's personal publicist and defense attorney.

Throughout this process, Barr's top priority has been to protect Donald Trump at the expense of the rule of law. His behavior today proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is incapable of being the country's chief law enforcement officer.

We now know that special counsel Robert Mueller's report laid out 10 distinct episodes of potential obstruction of justice.1 But even before today, we already knew that Donald Trump was entirely unfit for office, and has repeatedly acted with a disqualifying contempt for the rule of law. Whether it's attempting to ban an entire religion from the United States, firing a law enforcement official investigating his campaign, or personally ordering his lawyer to lie to the American people about an extramarital affair, there is more than enough in the public record right now for Democrats to move forward with impeachment against Trump, and against Barr.

We need House Democrats to open impeachment proceedings against Trump and Barr, and use all relevant content from the Mueller report to hold this administration accountable.

Tell House Democrats: Start impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump and his loyalist William Barr. Click here to sign the petition.

Despite Barr's supposed commitment to an open and transparent process, he repeatedly met with White House officials in recent weeks to discuss the contents of the report. For weeks, the White House prepared their rebuttal, while Congress and the American people were left in the dark.2

The release of the report has been a partisan effort driven by Trump, and Barr, to "completely exonerate" the Trump administration. But we know that Trump is guilty of holding our democracy hostage and harming the American people – and we can no longer allow Trump and his appointees to continue to undermine our democratic institutions.

Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats have an urgent choice to make, and the path they choose will speak volumes about their commitment to our democracy and to the communities Trump threatens every day: Will they continue to play politics as usual or will they step up to use their power to impeach both Donald Trump and William Barr?

Tell House Democrats: Impeach Donald Trump and William Barr. Click the link below to sign the petition:

Sign the petition: Stand with Rep. Tlaib and support her impeachment resolution

It's time for the House of Representatives to start an impeachment investigation

Dear 5849376,

It's time for the House to start an impeachment investigation

Attorney General William Barr will release special counsel Robert Mueller's report today.1 Despite pressure from Congress and the American people, the report will be heavily-redacted and exclude key pieces of information that could incriminate the Trump administration in high crimes and misdemeanors.

But regardless of what is or isn't in the report, Trump is not exonerated. We don't need the report to tell us that Trump is guilty of corrupting the highest office in the nation.

Whether it's declaring a fake national emergency in order to commit an unconstitutional power grab, attempting to ban an entire religion from our country, separating and indefinitely detaining immigrant families, undermining our democracy to line his pockets, or obstructing justice, it's clear that there are enough grounds for the House of Representatives to move forward with impeachment proceedings. But our representatives won't act unless we force them to.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib has introduced a resolution calling on the House Committee on the Judiciary to start an official impeachment investigation into the Trump administration. Now, we need every member of Congress to back it.

Tell the House of Representatives: Start an impeachment investigation into the Trump administration now. Click here to sign the petition.

The House Committee on the Judiciary has a responsibility to open an investigation into whether Trump and his businesses:

  • Violated the Foreign Emoluments Clause by accepting payments, regulatory approval, or other forms of direct and indirect financial benefits from foreign governments.
  • Corrupted our political process and defrauded the United States by directing Michael Cohen to make illegal payments to interfere and affect the 2016 presidential election.
  • Committed actions to obstruct the investigation led by the special counsel.

Every member of the House of Representative must stand with Rep. Tlaib as she takes bold moral action and back the resolution – but many won't act unless there is massive pressure to do so.

Only Congress has the constitutional authority to hold Trump accountable and defend our democracy. It's time it stops outsourcing its power and opens an impeachment investigation into the Trump administration now.

Tell the House of Representatives: Start an impeachment investigation into the Trump administration now. Click the link below to sign the petition:

Sign the petition: We expect better from Speaker Pelosi

Speaker Nancy Pelosi: Lead the change Democratic voters want to see

The petition to Speaker Nancy Pelosi reads:
"Lead the Democratic Party into the future with bold, progressive policies and support for powerful progressive leaders."

Dear 5849376,

Speaker Nancy Pelosi: Lead the change Democratic voters want to see

When our leaders fail us, it's our responsibility to hold them accountable and ask them to do better.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been a champion for women's rights and reproductive freedom. The Affordable Care Act would never have become law without her leadership.

She has the power to lead the Democratic Party into a bright new future. But she is not using it. Instead, she is undermining the next generation of progressive leaders and choosing moderation over progressive values and policies.

Speaker Pelosi's persistence and courage have made way for more women in Congress and helped Democrats take back the House. But voters elected Democrats to boldly lead, not head to the center and meter their power. We need to make sure Speaker Pelosi knows that progressives expect better and will have her back if she leads with courage now.

Tell Speaker Nancy Pelosi: Lead the change Democratic voters want to see. Click here to sign the petition.

Voters in November made clear that they want more from Democratic leaders. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib represent the future that we all want to see – a country where leaders put people and the planet before corporate interests and lead with urgency to make the promise of freedom and justice for all real for everyone.

It is crystal clear that Donald Trump and his fellow Republicans are terrified by the power these women of color have and by the vision they hold for our country. Trump and his supporters know they lose when these leaders succeed. It's why they are relentless in their attacks. They need to divide Democrats and stir up fear and anger in their base so they can keep lining their pockets, undermining our democracy and promoting their white supremacist agenda.

Unfortunately, Democratic leaders are playing right into their hands. Instead of embracing a bold vision which will inspire voters across the country, they continue to chart a course toward an imagined moderate voter who will somehow be inspired by watered-down policies and incremental change. Instead of embracing the leaders who are the future of the party, they are keeping their distance and contributing to the toxic environment that fosters vicious right-wing attacks.

We need them to do better. Tell Speaker Nancy Pelosi: Lead the change Democratic voters want to see. Click here to sign the petition.

Most Democratic leaders could be doing more, and better, but Speaker Pelosi's leadership is vitally important. She is a far stronger leader than Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who has failed to lead any resistance since Trump was elected and whose small bouts of courage since the midterms seem to be a direct result of Speaker Pelosi's control of the House. Having the majority in her chamber means she has the chance to organize her caucus in support of visionary legislation, call votes that define Democratic values for Congress as a whole and force Republicans to go on the record as the craven cowards they are.

We need her to use her power and skill to promote and make possible a progressive vision for the Democratic Party. Instead, she has recently:

  • Failed to stand with Rep. Ilhan Omar. In March, Speaker Pelosi attempted to rebuke Rep. Omar for remarks that were taken out of context and shared by right-wing media and politicians to promote the idea that Rep. Omar is anti-Semitic.1 This weekend, Speaker Pelosi replied to Donald Trump's tweet tying Rep. Omar to the 9/11 attacks, which created a spike in violent threats, without defending Rep. Omar and with language that could have been construed as a critique of her.2
  • Diminished freshmen women of color. Speaker Pelosi used her platform on "60 Minutes" this past Sunday to downplay the power of the progressive women of color in Congress who are leading the call to impeach Trump and pushing for bold progressive policies like Medicare for All and the Green New Deal.3
  • Proposed moderation instead of visionary leadership. She recently presented her proposals for climate change and healthcare reform – incremental bills to keep the United States in the Paris accords and strengthen the ACA instead of support for the Green New Deal and Medicare for All.4 Recent reports indicate a top Pelosi aide has been actively fighting against Medicare for All.5
  • Rejected impeaching Trump. The House has the authority and the responsibility to provide oversight of the executive branch but Speaker Pelosi has repeatedly refused to consider even opening an impeachment investigation. In March, she went even further, saying it's "not worth" the potential political risk to impeach the racist authoritarian occupying the Oval Office.6

Speaker Pelosi's lasting legacy should not be pushing for the same old centrist policies and failed compromises that are weakening the party and failing the country. We need to help make sure she leaves a legacy of leading into the future. Can you add your name today?

RSVP now: Green New Deal tour in Des Moines on April 22

Join the Green New Deal tour stop in Des Moines

Our friends at Sunrise Movement are hitting the road for a nationwide tour to fire up the movement for a Green New Deal. RSVP now to join them on Monday, April 22, in Des Moines.

Click below to RSVP:

RSVP ►

Dear 5849376,

We demand a Green New Deal

The Green New Deal is a bold vision. It would transform this country from a fossil fuel economy that harms communities to a clean energy future that benefits everyone. Can you help make this vision a reality?

Our friends at Sunrise Movement are just days away from kicking off the Road to a Green New Deal tour.1 With eight major stops and over 100 smaller town halls planned, the tour is designed to start building the grassroots support we need to win a Green New Deal.

Will you RSVP today to join the Green New Deal tour stop on Monday, April 22, in Des Moines?

What: Green New Deal tour stop
Where: Sheslow Auditorium, 2507 University Ave, Des Moines, IA, 50311
When: 7 p.m., Monday, April 22

In 2018, young Sunrise Movement leaders put the Green New Deal on the map and permanently changed the conversation on climate policy in this country. The political establishment is scrambling to keep up with thousands of people across the country who are eager to take action and bring the promise of the Green New Deal to reality. Meanwhile, fossil fuel CEOs and the Koch brothers will spend a virtually unlimited amount of money trying to turn the tide of public opinion against the Green New Deal. But there's something that their money can't buy: the kind of hope and power being part of a movement creates. That's what activists are building at every stop on this tour.

The more people are talking about the Green New Deal in our own communities, the more pressure we will generate on elected officials to take it seriously and get on board. Get tickets to a tour stop near you and invite your friends and family to join you there.

Join our friends at Sunrise Movement for the Green New Deal event in Des Moines on Monday, April 22. Click the link below to RSVP:

Sign the petition: Don't let Trump and friends develop the Amazon rainforest

Tell Congress: Stand up for human rights in Brazil

Dear 5849376,

Tell Congress: Stand up for human rights in Brazil

Brazil's Indigenous peoples and Afro-Brazilian communities are under grave threat. So is the future of the Amazonian rainforests that serve as lungs for the entire planet.

The new president of Brazil, far-right-wing demagogue Jair Bolsonaro, wants to work with the Trump administration to "develop" the Amazon.1 He intends to open up the region to unfettered logging, mining and development, violating the legal rights of the Indigenous communities who live there. Brazil is already the deadliest country for activists and defenders of the land and environment,2 and under Bolsonaro it is getting worse.3

The more attention we can bring to these ongoing human rights violations, the harder it will be for Bolsonaro to continue his dirty work with impunity. One way to do that is by making sure our elected officials in Congress know what's happening and are prepared to hold the Trump administration accountable.

Tell Congress: Stand up for human rights in Brazil. Call on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to hold Bolsonaro accountable. Click here to sign the petition.

In Brazil, Indigenous tribes have a constitutional right to reject mining and development in their territories. That right is a major reason that much of Brazil's rainforests remain intact.4 But now Bolsonaro wants to allow mining on Indigenous lands without consent. He dismantled the government agency tasked with protecting Indigenous lands and he is working to dismantle the country's environmental agency.5 Frighteningly, he claimed – contrary to Brazil's constitution and courts – that "there's no such thing as an Indigenous people."6

Along with Indigenous peoples, Bolsonaro is targeting the constitutional land rights of Afro-Brazilian Quilombola communities, founded and organized by escaped slaves and their descendants. The racist underpinnings of his policies are blatant, as when he claimed that Quilombolas "do nothing! They are not even good for procreation."7

Assassinations in Brazil were on the rise even before Bolsonaro's election. In 2017, at least 57 community leaders were murdered for political reasons.8 Bolsonaro's violent rhetoric will only embolden the agribusiness and mining interests that assassinate community leaders who are defending their land.

Now is the time to raise our voices, sending a clear message to the Trump and Bolsonaro administrations that we won't tolerate violations against Indigenous peoples and Quilombola communities. By calling on our own representatives to speak up, we can shine a spotlight on this brutal regime and the threat it poses to Indigenous tribes, Afro-Brazilian communities and the future of the Amazon.

Next week, members of Congress will deliver a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo calling on him and others at the State Department to monitor and defend human rights in Brazil.9 Sign the petition now to make sure your representative's name is on the letter.

Tell Congress: Stand up for human rights in Brazil. Call on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to hold Bolsonaro accountable. Click the link below to sign the petition:
