Take Action: End the Influence of Big Money

New legislation from Congress, HR1, will modernize our election system, reform redistricting, and restore the Voting Rights Act. But we need your help to ensure that a key provision reducing the undue influence of Big Money in our politics is also included. Contact your U.S. Representative and ask that a small donor public financing system is included as a priority in HR1.

Climate Change Reports Sound Alarm

 

Two important reports on climate change were released in the past few weeks: the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Special Report and the US National Climate Assessment. Together, these reports sound the loudest alarm yet that devastating climate change is happening now and will continue to get far worse without immediate, large-scale action. Read our blog highlighting the reports and check out the LWVUS Toolkit for Climate Action to find ideas about getting involved in your community.
