The incoming Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer, is our senior senator-- we have an obligation and an opportunity to make sure he understands his role is to be the strong opposition not simply an accomodationist.
The new administration is already working to undo decades of progress in civil rights and attack voting rights, threatening investigations into non-existent voter fraud as an excuse to back voter suppression measures, and appointing Jeff Sessions, a man hostile to voting rights and human rights in general, as Attorney General. Senator Schumer’s must organize his conference to do everything possible to block the worst of what’s to come in D.C.
Tell Senator Schumer you expect him to stand up and be a strong guardian of democracy. Tell him not to be afraid to tell this administration and congressional leaders NO repeatedly.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Common Cause.
