Just say NO to Jeff Sessions!

Senator Sessions could be the worst Attorney General ever - he's pro-torture, anti-voting rights, anti-civil rights and supports unchecked surveillance powers. Please make two phone calls today, to Senators Cardin and Van Hollen to tell them to oppose Sessions. Call 877-959-6082

Another anniversary of Guantanamo is upon us - to say nothing of the 55 remaining inmates there, still held without charge or trial.  Join us at 12 pm Wed January 11 at the Supreme Court for an interfaith service to protest that and the Sessions and Pompeo nominations.  Event sponsored by Witness against Torture, Amnesty International, BORDC/DDF, Center for Constitutional Rights, Code Pink, Council on American Islamic Relations, and more.

Support our ally Bill of Rights Defense Committee / Defending Dissent Foundation - join their mailing list, and consider donating!  Year in, year out, this organization shares organizing expertise, draft legislation, and news analyses that help citizens around the country defend our rights.
Thanks for all you do!

Check our calendar for details about our actions and other important events around the area. We'll be in touch!
