55] – Learn How to Pass a Local Resolution in Response to the January 6 Investigation, a Virtual Meeting, hosted by January 6 Hearings on Thursdays from 4:30 to 5:30 PM EDT.  Passing local resolutions helps build momentum on a local, state and national level to protect our freedom to vote from ongoing efforts by Trump and MAGA Republicans to sabotage our elections.

  The bipartisan January 6th Select Committee has shown that Trump and his MAGA allies planned, promoted, and paid for a criminal conspiracy to overturn an election they knew they’d lost. Trump and his MAGA allies continue to work to sabotage future elections by changing state laws, threatening state officials and packing election administration offices so that they can have the final say over election results – even when they lose. Sign up for the Sept. 15 webinar at

58] – Progressive Maryland wants you to phone bank on Throwdown Thursday, Sept. 15 from 6 to 8 PM. Join every Thursday to call or text for one of the endorsed candidates! Register at 

59] – The Coalition on Human Needs [] is teaming up with Vote forward on Thurs., Sept. 15 from 6 to 7 PM ET. Also involved is the cast of Hamilton to increase voter turnout in vulnerable communities. Get involved virtually to write handwritten letters to voters encouraging them to vote in this year’s midterm elections.  RSVP at

60] – Tune in on Thurs., Sept. 15 at 7 PM ET to Getting to Yes: Is an Iran Deal Final Agreement Possible? This Actionar will focus on the current JCPOA status – resolved and remaining unresolved issues to get to YES.  Hear from Barbara Slavin of the Atlantic Council and Ali Vaez of the International Crisis Group. More than four years after Trump pulled the US out of the JCPOA, it is clear that maximum pressure has failed. Assassinations of Iranian scientists and military leaders and attempts at sabotage have completely failed to change or reshape Iran’s foreign policy toward the concept of success defined by a hostile America.   What it has produced instead is an Iran that is more determined to chart a path free of American direction, pushing it closer to China and Russia rather than the West.  Register at

61] – United We Dream's Unafraid Team [] wants you to phone bank.  Young people are facing so many challenges – lack of healthcare and high student loan debt, plus rent, gas, and food prices are all too high - which keep us from truly feeling safe and thriving.

From now until Election Day in November, get the tools young people need to feel empowered, unafraid and ready to make our voices heard at the polls. Call eligible voters to make sure our communities and young people are heard and feel Unafraid at the polls. If you have never phone banked before, no worries - you will be trained! There is a phone bank on Thurs., Sept. 15 at 7 PM.  Sign up at  

62] –Elie Mystal [] wants your attention on Thurs., Sept. 15 at 7 PM ET to discover What you can do to reverse the harm caused by Trump judges. Also joining Elie will be the People for President Ben Jealous and Executive Vice President Marge Baker.  The beginning of the next Supreme Court term is right around the corner on October 3. And after the Court’s attacks on our democracy and fundamental rights in the last term, the arrival of another term is nothing short of alarming. And it’s not just Supreme Court justices who are attacking our rights. As hundreds of newly minted far-right Trump judges (the most conservative in modern history) on the lower courts also begin to erode our more cherished rights, we can and must do more to push back against their attacks.
