45] – Our Revolution [] needs you on Thurs., June 8 to join a rally to tell President Biden to stop the Mountain Valley Pipeline! President Biden faced fierce opposition when he approved the Willow oil drilling project. If he does it again with the Mountain Valley Pipeline (a priority of Joe Manchin), the response will be even greater. Gather at the White House at 2 PM ET to demand Biden stop this pipeline! RSVP at  By backing Manchin's Dirty Deal, the Biden administration has signaled they are willing to sacrifice Appalachians. For over a century, Appalachia has been deemed a sacrifice zone. The fossil fuel industry has destroyed its wellbeing. We will not let the Mountain Valley Pipeline add to this legacy. We will stop MVP and secure a better, more just future for our home. Let the organizers know if you are willing to risk arrest.

46] – On Thurs., June 8 from 4 to 5 PM ET, get with the Public Citizen Democracy Campaign Team virtual Democracy Calls.  These nationwide efforts are aimed at protecting elections and election officials.  Join us on Team Democracy calls to discuss ways we can protect and demand our freedom to vote!

48] – Public Citizen [] wants you to join in on Thurs., June 8 from 4 to 5 PM ET to discuss Future Trump indictments with Norm Eisen. While we’ll have to wait awhile for more news about Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s investigation into Donald Trump, we could see more indictments from different investigations soon: in Georgia: Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis — who is investigating potential interference in Georgia’s 2020 election — said earlier this week that she would make an announcement over the summer (between July 11 and September 1) about whether or not Trump or his allies would be charged. And the Department of Justice is running their own investigations too: Special counsel Jack Smith is investigating Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election, as well as Trump’s handling of classified documents. Also speaking will be the Brennan Center’s Ruby Edlin, and Anat Shenker-Osorio of ASO Communications. RSVP at
