Three weeks — not too long for us to remain powerfully focused on our election goals: to elect candidates that promote our democracy, defend reproductive freedom and all our rights and freedoms, which are under attack by Extremists everywhere!
In recent months, when Roe v. Wade was overturned by the Supreme Court, we were faced with what can happen in all our states regarding reproductive rights (even in progressive states such as New York) especially if extremists are elected to majorities in state legislatures and to key state-wide leadership positions.
What happens if extremists take over the U.S. House and Senate? Will a nation-wide ban on abortion rights be promoted and put into law, changing reproductive rights throughout the country? There are other rights that are online to be taken away by an activist Supreme Court. Extremists in Congress also will continue to block legislation that will have positive economic impacts for our nation; they are more interested in obstruction than in getting things done for the people.
MAGA Republicans are spreading disinformation and outright lies about non-MAGA candidates and positions in support of democracy. Here are some ways to show support for our candidates, defend our democratic norms and principles in the next 3 weeks, and to learn a thing or two:
