It’s another hectic and confusing news week, but let’s highlight some good news, just in time for the holidays:
- Lynching is now a federal crime, thanks to the Justice for Victims of Lynching Act, which passed the Senate unanimously. The Act was sponsored by Cory Booker, Tim Scott and our own Kamala Harris
- When the GOP tried to bundle the Israel Anti-Boycott Act with the appropriations bill, Bernie Sanders and our own Dianne Feinstein wrote a sharp letter of rebuke
- And while it’s too late to save the people who have already been killed in mass shootings enabled by these devices, bump stocks have finally been banned
Your advocacy gives our Senators the political cover to do what’s right. Thank you.
ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW
Call Senator Harris and thank her for speaking up for victims of lynching. Call Senator Feinstein and thank her for defending free speech, and for her long and principled track record on common sense gun laws.
