The Time is Now for the full Senate to Confirm Loretta Lynch as U.S. Attorney General

Loretta Lynch is highly qualified to lead the Justice Department as the Attorney General because of her experience, her deep commitment to public service, and her dedication to the American justice system.

>> Call senators (202-224-3121) today to urge them to support Loretta Lynch as the next U.S. Attorney General.

Push Congress to stand up for equal opportunity in education

For 50 years, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) has provided crucial opportunities to raise achievement for historically underserved populations, including students of color, students who are low-income, have a disability, are English Language Learners, or are somehow otherwise disadvantaged.

>> Call your member of Congress (202-224-3121) today and urge them to oppose the Student Success Act (H.R. 5) and support a reauthorized Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) that ensures equal educational opportunities for all students.

Lend your voice - stand strong for DAPA and DACA

We must urge senators to oppose any language that would put hardworking immigrant families at an even greater risk of deportation, and instead demand a clean funding bill.

>> Call senators (202-224-3121) today and urge them to vote against tearing immigrant families apart in the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2015 (H.R. 240).
