Congress is back and we need your help! - Send a letter to your elected officials today!

Congress has returned to Washington for a new session and we are bringing your priorities – and the priorities of the Civil Rights Coalition – to Capitol Hill in 2015.  Now is the time to contact your U.S. Representative and Senators.

>> Send a letter to your elected officials which highlights the issues that you told us were most important to you.

Watch and support Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch testify before the Senate

On November 8, President Barack Obama nominated Loretta Lynch to be the 83rd United States Attorney General to succeed Eric Holder. If confirmed, Lynch would be the first African-American woman to serve as U.S. Attorney General.

>> Call senators and urge them to swiftly confirm civil and human rights champion Loretta Lynch as the new U.S. Attorney General.

Urge Senators to Stand with Immigrant Families

Instead of fixing the broken immigration system, some members of Congress have opted to make it even worse. They’re putting families at risk, instead of offering them the American Dream.

>> Call senators (202-224-3121) and urge them to vote against tearing immigrant families apart in the Homeland Security funding bill.
