32] –On Wed., Dec. 7 at  9AM, Common Cause wants you get involved in a protest -- No Lawless Lawmakers: Moore v. Harper Rally at the Supreme Court,  1 First St. NE, WDC 20543. The Supreme Court will hear Moore v. Harper, a redistricting case where North Carolina lawmakers argue state legislatures should have near absolute power to run federal elections without checks and balances from the courts. Moore could make it easier for politicians to restrict the vote, draw rigged maps, and cast doubt on election results. That means it will be harder to turn public demands into public policy from we, the people, wanting higher wages to healthcare for all. It's time to fight back and say no to lawless lawmakers. At the U.S. Supreme Court, show that folks all around the country are against attempts to destroy our well-established checks and balances and sow chaos and doubt in our elections! If you have any questions, email Herb Meisner at RSVP at
