Dear Indivisibles,

What a great showing we had on Tuesday! Thank you to everyone who came out to say that Kansas CityNo Trump in KC Rally rejects 45 and the bigotry, cruelty, inequality, and authoritarianism advanced by his administration. We estimate about 500 people were there at the peak in the afternoon (though many more people participated in protests organized by all kinds of groups throughout the day), and over a dozen people registered to vote! To see lots of photos and media coverage, check out the Event Story on our website.

  • The Trump administration is attempting to make numerous small changes to erode the endangered species act including protections for wolves, migratory birds, and every other wild animal in the United States. We are currently in the midst of a mass extinction, and the only question now is whether we'll try to slow the loss that's already happened or speed along until well after eagles and salmon are gone forever. Visit the NRDC website for calls to action to protect the environment.

Protest the gag ruleSubmit a comment opposing the Title X Gag Rule - Comment period ends tomorrow!

Can you imagine visiting a doctor who, unbeknownst to you, was forced to withhold information about your best medical options? It’s unfathomable and dangerous. But that’s exactly how the Trump administration wants to treat patients under the nation’s family planning program, Title X.

They have proposed a rule that would prohibit Title X family planning providers, such as Planned Parenthood, from making abortion referrals even when requested by a patient. Medical professionals would essentially be banned from giving full and accurate information to their patients.

Every year, millions of people with low incomes rely on Title X for basic, preventive reproductive health care, including birth control, cancer screenings, and STI testing and treatment. If the clinics that currently provide this care are removed from Title X participation, these patients could lose access to this high-quality care and the ability to choose providers that meet their needs. The comment period ends tomorrow, July 31. Submit your comment opposing the gag rule today.
