The Inflation Reduction Act represents our country’s biggest-ever effort to fight the climate crisis, our most significant action to lower health care costs in more than a decade, and makes long-overdue changes so the mega-rich and giant corporations finally pay what they owe in taxes. But how will these massive undertakings affect each of us on a personal level? When can we expect to feel these changes in our own lives? What can we do to make sure our communities aren’t left behind as this law is implemented? Register at

68] – 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. This event will continue through Nov. 17.  Sign up for the Sept. 22 webinar at
