Take Action Now:

President Obama Took Action. Now it's Congress' Turn.

President Obama announced that his administration will provide relief to millions of undocumented immigrants living in the shadows. We commend President Obama’s executive action, but the only way to fix our broken immigration system is for Congress to act.

>> Send a letter to your representative and urge Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform.

Finding Solutions in Ferguson and Beyond: Begin by Ending Racial Profiling

The grand jury decision regarding the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, provides a stark reminder that the justice system desperately needs reform. We must push Congress to act in the name of Michael Brown and the many others who have been killed at the hand of police officers to pass the End Racial Profiling Act.

>> Take action: Congress must pass the End Racial Profiling Act (ERPA)

Time is Running Out. Urge Senators to Confirm Nominees Without Delay.

A staggering number of nominees for the federal courts, and for various positions within our government, have been awaiting votes by the full Senate for weeks. We must push senators to stay through the end of the year to take this final opportunity in 2014 and confirm as many nominees as possible before the end of the session.

>> Call senators and urge them to swiftly confirm these highly qualified nominees before the end of the year.
