Dear 5849376,

Tell Congress: Revoke Trump's national emergency declaration

We need all hands on deck. Donald Trump has declared a national emergency so he can build his border wall without congressional approval.

This unconstitutional power grab gives Trump vast new powers to undermine our democracy and supercharge his white supremacy. He'll be more able than ever to escalate attacks on immigrants, communities of color, Muslims, and Black and Brown people.

Congress gives a president who declares a national emergency far too much power and does far too little to check it. In the hands of a racist autocrat like Trump, these powers are even more terrifying. Today, people are taking to the streets across the country to demand that Congress rein him in. Can you help amplify their pressure by signing the petition now?

Tell Congress: Revoke Trump's national emergency and rein in presidential emergency powers. Click here to sign the petition.

Trump's national emergency is completely manufactured. The only crisis on our southern border is the one that he has spent the last two years creating. But that doesn't make it any less dangerous. Declaring a state of emergency gives Trump access to more than 100 special powers that allow him to override the laws that protect our civil rights and civil liberties and unleash a range of nightmarish scenarios at the border and in communities across the country.1

Under a state of emergency, Trump can:2

  • order the military to round up immigrants or stop protests in American cities.
  • order the killing or indefinite detention of people he designates as enemies.
  • freeze assets and block financial transactions of people who hire, house, or provide paid legal representation to asylum seekers.
  • block access to websites and social media tools or disrupt email communication.

The idea that emergency powers invite abuse against communities of color is not hypothetical. Franklin Roosevelt used these powers to round up U.S. citizens and residents of Japanese descent in internment camps.3 George W. Bush used them to engage in warrantless wiretapping and deportation that particularly targeted Muslim communities after the 9/11 attacks.4 Under Trump, we can be sure that emergency powers will again disproportionately target communities already most at risk of surveillance, law enforcement abuse, incarceration, deportation and racist scapegoating – in particular, immigrants, Muslims, and Black and Brown people.

Congress has the power to revoke Trump's declaration of emergency, but it will only happen if Democrats in the House of Representatives lead the way. If the House acts, then the Senate will have to vote as well. That means Republicans will have to go on record with a vote to defend the Constitution and our communities or endorse Trump's illegal power grab.

We must keep pushing to make sure Congress asserts its authority and immediately votes to revoke Trump's emergency declaration. Trump himself is the emergency, and Congress has the power – and responsibility – to respond.

Loopholes you could drive a Comcast truck through

Tell Congress: Reject fake net neutrality

The petition to Congress reads:
"Reject fake net neutrality bills and pass legislation that restores the FCC's 2015 Open Internet Order."

Dear 5849376,

Tell Congress: Reject fake net neutrality

We will never give up fighting for net neutrality – and Republicans know it. When Trump's FCC repealed open internet rules, our movement filed lawsuits, pressured Congress and passed state net neutrality laws. Public support for net neutrality has only grown. So instead of trying to beat us, now they want to trick us.

Last week three Republicans in the House of Representatives announced they will be introducing three so-called "net neutrality" bills. These bills would give telecom companies huge loopholes so they can continue discriminatory practices that are bad for consumers.1 Passing them could make it impossible for the FCC to enforce real net neutrality in the future.

Fake net neutrality is not net neutrality. But Democrats could easily cave unless we speak up.Our elected officials need to hear that we won't accept anything less than the real open internet rules that Trump's FCC repealed. We need to kill these bills to make room for strong net neutrality legislation that actually protects the open internet for everyone.

Tell Congress: Reject fake net neutrality. Click here to sign the petition.

We don't yet know all the details of these bills. But based on their authors' comments and past legislation, we know that they aren't real net neutrality.2 Although they would prohibit certain kinds of anti-competitive practices by broadband providers, they won't restore all the rules we need to protect our rights online.

As technology keeps changing, we need the FCC to keep up. By narrowing the definition of net neutrality, these bills would prevent the FCC from adapting to open internet issues of the future.3 By declaring that the internet is not a public utility, the bills would also limit the FCC's ability to protect privacy, ensure universal service, enforce truth in billing and guarantee disability access.4

Democrats in the House of Representatives have said they want a bipartisan net neutrality bill, which means they are open to compromising with Republicans.5 But we cannot compromise on the core principles that keep the internet open and free. Now that Democrats control the House, we have a real opportunity to push Congress to pass meaningful net neutrality legislation and direct the FCC to do its job. But if these bills gain momentum, we could lose that opportunity, maybe forever.

Stand up for LGBTQ rights and block the transgender military ban (signatures needed)

Tell Congress: Block the transgender military ban

The petition to Congress reads:
"Trump's attempt to ban transgender people from serving in the military is a direct assault on the LGBTQ community. Stand up to Trump's bigotry, hate, and transphobia by ensuring that the transgender military ban is blocked and that transgender service members are protected."

Dear 5849376,

Tell Congress: Block the trans ban

Last summer, Trump abruptly announced on Twitter that "the United States Government will not accept or allow...Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military."1 His unhinged tweet soon turned into policy. Federal judges attempted to block it from going into effect, but Trump's conservative Supreme Court recently temporarily reinstated the ban.2

Trump's decision to ban transgender people from the military is a policy blatantly rooted in transphobia, hatred and bigotry - and is a direct assault on the LGBTQ community.

Fortunately, Congress is another line of defense. Allies just introduced legislation that would prohibit the Department of Defense from denying the enlistment or continued service of transgender people solely on the basis of their identity.3

Tell Congress: Protect our transgender service members and pass bills H.R. 1032 and S. 373. Click here to sign the petition.

Trump launched his vile and ugly attack against transgender service members based on debunked, extreme right-wing talking points. He claims that the medical cost for transgender troops would be a "tremendous burden" on the military.4 The truth is, there is no evidence that there have ever been or will be high costs for treating transgender people in the military. Based on studies released by the Pentagon itself, medical care for transgender troops is only 0.0014 percent of defense spending.5 It is clear that this ban has nothing to do with saving taxpayer money - is strictly about discrimination.

The majority of Americans support equal protection under the law for LGBTQ Americans, but in most states, people can be fired from their jobs, evicted from their apartments, or denied services because of their sexual orientation or gender identity and presentation.6 By making incendiary, bigoted policy proposals like banning transgender people from military service, Trump is not only refusing to create a climate of safety and inclusion, but he is also proactively attempting to dismantle the rights of LGBTQ people.

One hundred and eleven members of Congress have already co-sponsored legislation to block the ban and protect our transgender service members from discrimination.7 We need to build more support to pass bills H.R. 1032 and S. 373 and make sure that the military ban never goes back into effect.

Tell Congress: Stand with transgender troops to block the military ban. Click the link below to sign the petition:
