Please sign my petition – tell Congress to take bold action to fight the climate crisis

It is past time for the United States to treat climate change like what it is: an emergency that is an existential threat to humanity that requires an urgent, massive response. Friends - In Texas today, following an unprecedented winter storm, millions of people are without drinking water d…

The minimum wage is $8.75 in West Virginia

Let us keep our focus on what is important during the fight to raise the minimum wage to a living wage of $15 an hour. Friends - Trump, and his narcissism and authoritarianism, are out of the White House. The impeachment trial, which garnered 57 votes to convict, is over. Now, if we're go…

$2,000 payments

It is disappointing that any Democrat would think that a person making $52,000 a year is too rich to get the full benefits. Friends - Democrats promised the American people that if we won both races in Georgia and took control of the Senate, we were going to pass a very popular COVID relief…

I am writing to ask if you would make a $2.70 contribution to help us organize to pass a pair of reconciliation bills that will transform this country.

Over the course of the next few months — through a process known as reconciliation — we have the chance to do more for working people in this country than I’ve done since the day I was first sworn in back in 1991. Friends - In the next several months, with your help, we have the opportunity…

Sign my petition: tell Congress you support raising the minimum wage to a living wage - $15 an hour - and that you want action without delay.

Some politicians still say raising the minimum wage to a living wage, $15 an hour, is “too radical.” Friends - I have worked to raise the minimum wage from almost my first day in Congress. In 1993, I introduced a bill, the Livable Wage Act, that would have raised the minimum wage to $5.50… · [email protected]

Not even close to good enough

This bill was not even close to good enough, and my fear is that by reaching this agreement we are setting the stage for a return to austerity politics now that Joe Biden is set to take office. Friends - Late last night, Congress passed a $908 billion COVID relief bill that will extend unem…

Please add your name to tell Democratic leadership to advance a bold progressive agenda that puts working people first.
