Support the Tax Returns Uniformly Made Public Act (T.R.U.M.P. Act)!
In states across the country lawmakers are introducing the T.R.U.M.P. act, which would require candidates for President to release five years of tax returns in order to qualify for ballot access in that state. It's a common sense measure that will allow all citizens to know who our President is really working for.

Valentine's Day Card Save ACA
Sometimes it seems like politicians in Raleigh and Washington are heartless.
Congress is trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which would throw as many as 30 million people off of their health care. And here in NC, the General Assembly is actually suing Governor Cooper for trying to expand Medicaid, which would cover more than 600,000 North Carolinians and create 50,000 jobs.
Next week we’re going to deliver Valentine’s Day cards to Senators Burr and Tillis, urging them not to take away health care coverage for millions of Americans. Click here to sign a card to Tillis and Burr today!Save the ACA
Stand Against Trump's Anti-Abortion agenda
I wish we could say that everything is going to be OK, but Trump’s administration is on track to be the most anti-woman and anti-abortion in American history. If Trump follows through on his campaign promises, millions of women won’t be “OK.”
Add your name if you’re willing to stand against Donald Trump and his anti-abortion administration that is threatening to defund PP, restrict access to contraception and punish people who have abortions.
It’s not just Donald Trump either. Here’s a quick roundup of his anti-abortion cronies:
Vice President Pence: Signed Indiana’s most restrictive abortion bill and has been outspoken about defunding Planned Parenthood.
HHS Secretary nominee Tom Price: Sponsored two fetal personhood bills, voted for a national 20-week abortion ban, and is opposed to free birth control.
Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions: Has voted to make it more difficult for teens to get abortions, voted to ban military base abortions, and called Roe v. Wade one of the worst, colossally erroneous Supreme Court decision of all time.”
HUD Secretary nominee Ben Carson: Has referred to abortion as “murder.”
Chief of Staff Reince Priebus: Said that if you support abortion you can’t be a Republican.Fight for women's rights
Reject Trump's SCOTUS nominee
Last night President Trump nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. You know, the same vacancy that Judge Merrick Garland was nominated for nearly a year ago.
The big difference? Republicans had praised Garland, while Gorsuch is the preferred pick of Ted Cruz and far-right activists.
Given the circumstances, Judge Neil Gorsuch is simply too extreme for the Supreme Court. Trump lost the popular vote by nearly 3 million. He has no mandate whatsoever. And after historic obstruction by Senate Republicans in blocking the most qualified nominee ever, they deserve no deference or respect.
Until a truly moderate nominee is proposed, there is simply no reason for Senators to confirm Trump’s pick. And Neil Gorsuch’s record makes it clear he’s no moderate.
Take action and urge Senators to filibuster Trump’s extreme pick for the Supreme Court and demand a bi-partisan, consensus nominee.Reject Gorsuch
SIGN: Tell Congress to Protect Rape Victims on Campus
Congressman Meadows and his far-right colleagues are asking President-elect Trump to remove Department of Education rules that protect victims of rape on campus.
Meadows claims the incidence of campus rape is “greatly overstated” and that the current rules deny due process to the “often-innocent accused.” Both of those statements couldn’t be further from the truth.
About 25% of women are raped during their college career, and 2/3rds of rape cases go unreported. Moreover, only 2% of rape claims are proven false. Add your name to stand with victims against this outrageous attack.Stand with Victims
