Happy International Women’s Day!
This is the year the fight for equality intensifies: equal pay, reproductive self-determination, freedom from fear, child support, universal health care, guaranteed income, educational access, and dismantling the structures of male supremacy. We can do it!

Forty nine years ago today Diana Oughton, Ted Gold, and Terry Robbins, three American revolutionaries, were killed in an accidental bomb explosion in New York City. Take a moment today to remember them, and to recommit to the struggles that defined their lives: for Black Freedom and an end to racism and white supremacy, for peace and against war and empire, for equality, justice, and a humane future.

Fight Anti-Semitism, Support Ilhan Omar

March 5, 2019
House Democratic leaders are throwing Ilhan Omar under the bus – and it’s an all hands on deck moment.
Tomorrow the House will vote on a resolution condemning antisemitism in response to Rep. Ilhan Omar as she dares to speak up for Palestinian rights and critique Israel in a way no other member of Congress is doing.
Of course antisemitism deserves condemnation and attention, but this is a scapegoating strategy straight out of the bully playbook to intimidate others from speaking up – and we need to meet it with a massive public vote of support for Rep. Omar.
Will you call your representative and demand they stand against these outrageous intimidation tactics? Here’s my representative (and please find yours):
Representative Bobby Rush at (202) 225-4372
Here’s what I said when I called:
I’m calling to share my support for Rep. Ilhan Omar and condemn the outrageous act of introducing a resolution about antisemitism in response to Rep. Omar’s criticism of Israel.
This resolution is not being introduced out of a genuine concern for antisemitism, it’s about attacking Omar for her criticism of Israel.
I am concerned about the anti-Muslim and racist components of the attack on Ilhan Omar.
Phone calls are *the* most effective strategy we can use as constituents to make sure our representatives hear the depth, breadth and extent of our outrage.
