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.

Ratify the Disability Treaty - The Time is Now

The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) is an international human rights treaty that seeks to prohibit discrimination against people with disabilities around the world. Currently, 147 nations have ratified the disability treaty, improving the lives of more than 1 billion people living with disabilities. The time is long overdue for the United States to be added to this list.

>> Call (202-224-3121) senators today and urge them to swiftly approve and ratify the disability treaty as soon as possible!

Now Is the Time To Confirm the President's Executive And Judicial Nominees

While a number of district and circuit court nominees have been confirmed by the Senate this year, there are still more awaiting a yes-or-no vote. Many of these pending nominees are women and people of color who would bring needed diversity to our federal court system and to our government. The politics of obstruction must stop, and the Senate must confirm nominees in short order.
