As usual, this week is filled with lots of political action to take. Do you know of something to share? Be sure to post it in the chat and share these with friends. Here are just a few actions to take this week.
Sign the petition to President Biden: Restore the Iran Deal: Obama's carefully arranged deal with Iran to block nuclear weapons development in exchange for getting rid of sanctions against the country was obliterated by Trump, and now Biden is in talks to re-negotiate the deal. Sign on to encourage Biden to restore this very important deal for global safety.
Learn About Shoot First and Stand Your Ground Laws: Many states are rejecting laws that protect citizens from murdering others, or "standing your ground," on the basis of feeling afraid for their safety, but these laws are still in place or up for implementation in many others. Read about these laws and prepare to speak out against them if your state attempts to pass one like mine did.
Get involved in the plan to reenact the full Selma-to-Montgomery March next month!
Join the Embrace Race Race in America: Tensions and Solidarity Across BIPOC Groups webinar to learn about building stronger relationships with BIPOC children.
Combat all the book banning in your area by running for the school board, being a vocal parent and community member, and making sure important books like this one are seen and read.
State like mine are STILL fighting against Medicaid expansion even after voters agreed that they wanted it. Be sure to keep fighting if that's happening in your state, too.
