Advocacy Actions

You + Advocacy Actions = Powerful Change

The following list of online actions need your advocacy.

Either by phone or or by taking action on the following, thank you for making  a positive impact TODAY:

Federal actions:

Federal Budget

The US House’s budget proposal is an assault on the programs that support people living in poverty.  It makes $3 trillion worth of drastic cuts to life saving and life changing programs for seniors, kids and families, and people with disabilities so that the wealthiest Americans can get a $2.6 trillion tax break. Take a stand against this ruthless proposal today.

 

DACA

The Trump Administration announced the end of DACA in six months. DACA offers hard-won stability to nearly 800,000 people across the US. It provides necessary documentation which helps immigrant youth, their families, and all our communities thrive. Urge Congress to stand with Dreamers and DACA recipients!

 

 

CFPB block

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) finalized rules to protect consumers who take out payday loans and several other short-term, expensive loans. However, the brand new rules are already at risk of repeal by Congress. Urge Congress today to stand with consumers and leave the CFPB payday lending rule as it stands!

 

 

US Health Care: The never-ending healthcare drama continues. After your advocacy prevented Congress from repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the President has taken matters into his own destructive hands. In  October, the President issued a series of Executive Orders that will destabilize the health care market and erode essential consumer protections. At the same time, Congress has failed to reauthorize the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which provides health coverage for children in low-income families. Urge Congress to support efforts to stabilize the market AND reauthorize CHIP.

 

State actions:

In addition to taking email actions, you can call the Washington legislative hotline. With one call to the hotline at 1.800.562.6000 you can leave a message with your legislature to support or oppose multiple bills at once (see the bill names below).

There are no Washington State actions at this time.
