One of our readers just sent us this photo of the scene outside the Capitol. #SkinnyRepeal would mean 16 million Americans losing their health insurance and a 20% premium hike. Call your senators and keep demonstrating! The only way this madness ends is by taking the House back in 2018. Visit @swingleftorg to see how you can help!
My "you should read" selections of the moment. I follow @pantsuitnation on Facebook and love seeing the stories and the comments of support. Anyway, they have released a "Humans of New York" esque book and it's great to flip through. And it's currently 50% off at @barnesandnoble!
And I'm so glad that our real 43rd President is continuing his fight for climate change. The new companion book to the upcoming sequel documentary is wonderfully laid out with illustrations and succinct explanations.
Open your mind. Think for yourself, question authority.
When you're at the office but you would rather be beach-side

Often I felt embarrassed to be an American while I was overseas I never met a DT fan either. He is not setting an example of someone who we can stand behind. We can keep protesting, but can we talk? What about sitting with our opposition by listening to those who are in denial. It's been a long road already, how can we use our opposition to react positively to revitalize our divided nation? If we can break through to a neighbor or a an- ex Facebook friend, one at a time, we can continue advancing ourselves to be better than we once were. Don't act as he does. That's a bigly mistake. Act out of care. Use anger to fuel love. Our opposition collectively can TRANSition into more compassionate action.
Really amazing post in the #pantsuitnation Facebook group! "Be the change you want to see" has never rung more true. Support your fellow humans who are working / living alongside you in this very difficult time. #transrightsarehumanrights
"There is no reason to force service members who are able to fight, train, and deploy to leave the military—regardless of their gender identity. We should all be guided by the principle that any American who wants to serve our country and is able to meet the standards should have the opportunity to do so—and should be treated as the patriots they are." - John McCain on Trump's ban on transgender Americans serving in the military
BREAKING!I'll be a featured speaker at the Van Jones: We Rise Tour brought to you by Roc Nation!!Getting to share a stage with Van is....wow! Speechless. I read his book the Green Collar Economy in high school and along with other books like Silent Spring it inspired me to fight for the environment and economic/racial justice. That book inspired me to work on MoveOn.org 's campaign for green jobs and to volunteer for Obama's campaign. And look at me now!
