Call Our Representatives; Demand They Fight Hate
Call our members of Congress and tell them to insist that the fight against domestic white terrorism isn't defunded by the Trump regime. Specifically, ask them to require that the Countering Violent Extremism program retains its focus on white nationalism, that CVE grants are fully funded, and that a substantial portion of CVE grants are awarded to respond to the threat of white nationalism.  More information is here.

Send a Letter to Governor Cuomo
When Trump said the U.S. would abandon the Paris accord on slowing climate change, New York's Andrew Cuomo was one of the governors who declared that their state would honor the agreement. However, New York's climate bill died in the Senate this summer. Personalize, print, sign, and mail this letter to Cuomo to tell him to keep his promises.
