These brave activists are the true American heroes. Members of @NationalADAPT are currently staging a massive, indefinite sit-in to save Medicaid at the lobby of one of the Senate office buildings. Hundreds are chanting “I’d rather go to jail than die without Medicaid”. #ADAPTandRESIST! : @NationalADAPT on Twitter

Women, we have a duty to #DefendDACA. Since 2012, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program has protected 800,000 young people from deportation. Today’s #SignOfResistance comes from our friends at @UnitedWeDream. We will never stop fighting with them to protect immigrant youth and families. #HereToStay#DACA

In the left corner reads "text here to stay to 877877."]

On July 24th, we are launching a new music event series grounded in the spirit of collective joy and resistance. Protest songs are a hallmark of great civil rights movements. As Mr. Harry Belafonte told us while organizing the #WomensMarch: "When the music is strong, the movement is strong". Join us Monday in New York City as we honor these songs and create new ones at the first of our #ResistanceRevival nights. Thank you to @eliserpeterson for the artwork!

The GOP shut all 5 Republican women Senators entirely out of the health care repeal process. Today, 3 of those women blocked a proposal to repeal the ACA with no replacement — a decision that would disproportionately affect women and families. Today’s #SignOfResistance is by @caitlin_keegan. If you think lawmakers should #ListenToWomen, tell them.

"Freedom cannot be achieved unless the women have been emancipated from all forms of oppression." On #MandelaDay, we celebrate #NelsonMandela as a champion of women's rights.

Today was the 3 year anniversary of #EricGarner's death. Today, we remember Eric Garner.
[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: In large text at the top, "A Small Needful Fact." Below, the poet's name is printed: "Ross Gay." Under that: "Is that Eric Garner worked
for some time for the Parks and Rec.
Horticultural Department, which means,
perhaps, that with his very large hands,
perhaps, in all likelihood,
he put gently into the earth
some plants which, most likely,
some of them, in all likelihood,
continue to grow, continue
to do what such plants do, like house
and feed small and necessary creatures,
like being pleasant to touch and smell,
like converting sunlight
into food, like making it easier
for us to breathe."]
Today’s #SignOfResistance is by @ericaavilaart. On July 29th, we are taking to the streets to say our lives are on the line if Republicans pass Trumpcare. Join us. Visit OurLivesOnTheLine.org to find an #OurLives event near you. Until then, keep sharing your ACA stories using #HowTheACASavedMyLife!

Over the weekend, we marched 18.6 miles from the NRA to the DOJ to call for civil rights charges in the tragic and senseless killing of #PhilandoCastile, and to strive for the respect of the civil and human rights of all people. Even though the mobilization is over, you can still join in adding momentum to our call for justice. Click the link in our bio to ask your representative to co-sponsor a bill to end racial profiling by law enforcement. #NRA2DOJ : @roguephotonyc
