out Slumlords fundraiser for Buena Vista tenant organizers will happen on
Thurs., Sept. 15 from 6 to 9 PM ET. Join MDC DSA and Stomp out Slumlords at
Midlands Beer Garden, 3333 Georgia Ave. NW, WDC 20010 for a chapter-wide happy
hour and fundraiser to benefit the tenants of Buena Vista Apartments as they
try to use their TOPA rights to form a tenant co-op. For the past two years,
the tenants of Buena Vista Apartments have fought to protect their homes and
families from the greed of their slumlord. Now, they have the chance to
cooperatively buy their building and create dignified, permanently affordable
homes. 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
62] –Elie Mystal [email@example.com] 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. RSVP at https://act.pfaw.org/sign/rsvp-courts-briefing-091522/?utm_source=aa&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=sep15courtsbriefing&t=2&akid=32267%2E3302379%2ESjiM3p.
