This space is dedicated to the proposition that we need to know the history of the struggles on the left and of earlier progressive movements here and world-wide. If we can learn from the mistakes made in the past (as well as what went right) we can move forward in the future to create a more just and equitable society. We will be reviewing books, CDs, and movies we believe everyone needs to read, hear and look at as well as making commentary from time to time. Greg Green, site manager
Donald Trump said he'll be "proud" to shut the government down if he doesn't get funding for his racist and wasteful border wall.1
He's throwing a tantrum and doubling down on his demonization of immigrants, even after voters soundly rejected his hateful policies in the November election. And when Trump doesn't get his way, he lashes out—intentionally hurting families and communities, especially immigrants and communities of color.
Call your senators now at 1-844-354-9898 to say: "Reject Trump's racist border wall. No new money for ICE and CBP agents. No new detention beds. Stop Trump's cruel deportation machine."
We will not forget Trump’s policies: separating children from their families, tear-gassing asylum seekers at the border, housing children in sprawling detention camps in the desert, and cruelly ripping away DACA and TPS protections. Trump’s demand for a wall is his latest attack—and he's holding the government hostage to get his way.
Congress must reject Trump's racist border wall—and pass a one-year clean Continuing Resolution to end Trump’s temper tantrum before he inflicts more pain on our communities. Call your senators now at 1-844-354-9898.
On January 2 the new members of Congress will be sworn in, and Democrats will take control in the House after a hard-fought election. They'll be able to hold Trump and his administration accountable while also fighting for permanent protections for Dreamers and TPS holders and putting a check on Trump's deportation agenda. But first, the government needs to be funded without attacking immigrants and asylum seekers.
Call your senators now at 1-844-354-9898 and demand they pass a continuing resolution without any increases in funding for agents, detention beds, or racist walls.
Thanks for all you do.
