After a blistering primary season (which is technically still going), both parties are settling down to write their party platforms – a unity document that’s supposed to express the nature of what it means to be a “Democrat” or a “Republican” in 2016. For the Democratic National Committee (DNC), that means that Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders camps have each appointed members to […]
Call to Stop the Toxic TSCA bill

Enter Your Information Below: Senate negotiators and House Republicans have struck a deal to overhaul chemical safety laws, and a vote could happen this week — But there’s a toxic pill in the bill.

Last week I delivered 100,000 petition signatures to the Democratic National Committee with friends from Color of Change, Daily Kos, Climate Hawks Vote, Friends of the Earth, Honor the Earth and the HBCU Climate Change Initiative.

The election to succeed President Barack Obama officially commenced in Iowa last night, but the results of the Iowa Democratic Caucus had to wait until the morning. The Democratic side, in particular, showed us two things: 1.
