action alert

While we wait to see new health care legislation, today's Daily Action is to block Trump's nominee to run the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Dept, Eric Dreiband (844-241-1141).
Dreiband's views on civil rights are in the mold of Steve Bannon and Jeff Sessions. He's made a career of campaigning against civil rights legislation and criminal justice reform at the state and federal level. In court, he's represented companies like RJReynolds Tobacco and Abercrombie & Fitch against claims of pay discrimination, age discrimination, racial discrimination, and pregnancy discrimination. He's filed lawsuits that would restrict access to birth control. He even testified before Congress in opposition to the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.
This is exactly the opposite experience required for the one person in charge of enforcing our federal civil rights laws that range from voting to healthcare to education.
Today's call to 844-241-1141 will direct you to a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will hold Dreiband's confirmation hearing. A loud public outcry about Dreiband NOW can end his nomination before he gains support, quietly sailing under the radar. Help spread the word on his record and call the Senate Judiciary Committee and tell them to OPPOSE Eric Dreiband as head of the DOJ's Civil Rights Division.
