John Conyers wants Medicare-for-All

The repeal of the ACA and replacement with the AHCA is the start of a disaster for American healthcare, but Michigan's Rep. John Conyers, Jr., already has a solution. Conyers has been introducing Medicare-for-All legislation in the house every year for a lot of years. This year, his bill has more support than ever, which is a very good thing. Read more about his bill at the link here (and check to see if your Rep is a co-sponsor), and then send him a thank you note for persisting in his struggle to provide all Americans with health care.

Seattle and others divest to protest DAPL

Inspired by the work of Standing Rock Sioux water protectors, activist and councilwoman Kshama Sawant started pushing Seattle to pull investments from banks backing DAPL early this year. Her success inspired other cities to follow suit, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Bellingham, Raleigh, Albuquerque, and Berlin. 

Read more about her efforts and those of others here, and then send her a thank you for standing up for Standing Rock.
