Merkley joins uprising to change Senate's rules...

Joining forces with some of the Senate's newest members, Sen. Jeff Merkley is working to loosen the institution's rules on filibusters and other procedural tools that are used to stall progress on even the most basic legislative actions. The gambit is a direct response to the often immovable barriers that can be erected by a single senator or a small group. Those tools have have blocked hundreds of bills and nominations in the last year, frustrating many members but especially those like Merkley who were elected in 2008. Merkley is circulating a 7-page memo that outlines his ...

Sign the Petition: Fire Steve Bannon.
Donald Trump is appointing as his chief strategist an unrepentant white nationalist: Steve Bannon. That’s not OK, and we need to make that as clear as day to the President-elect. Steve Bannon proudly turned the Breitbart News site into a bastion of “alt-right” racism, sexism, hatred, and bigotry. It has a news section called “Black Crime.” After the massacre of African American churchgoers in Charleston, it promoted flying the Confederate flag as a symbol of “glorious heritage.” The outburst of hate speech and attacks on women, immigrants, African Americans, Muslims, and so many others, is a direct consequence of a Trump campaign that embraced Steve Bannon's extreme and hateful worldview. Sign the Petition: Call on Donald Trump to rescind the appointment of Steve Bannon, repudiate his horrific, racist, sexist, bigoted views, and call for an end to violence, hate speech, and intimidation.

Senators: Do your job (before it's too late)
This is theft. It's dereliction of duty. It's an affront to our democratic institutions. And it's time we put a stop to it. Republican leaders in the U.S. Senate are stealing a U.S. Supreme Court nomination that rightly belongs to President Barack Obama and handing it over to Donald Trump. I'm demanding that the Senate perform its constitutional "advice and consent" duty by vetting and voting on Judge Merrick Garland's nomination to the Supreme Court. Join me in calling for an immediate up or down vote on Judge Garland's appointment! Since 1975 the Senate has taken an average of 67 days to vote on Supreme Court nominees. Here we are, more than eight months after the President did his job, and the Senate has failed to hold a single hearing on Judge Garland's nomination. This reckless political stunt holds hostage the two other branches of government, risking lasting damage to our constitutional democracy. We have mere weeks until Donald Trump is sworn in as President and replaces Judge
The resistance
The time for mourning is over. If Donald Trump follows through on half the things he talked about on the campaign trail, we’re in trouble. And the early signs are that he intends to do just that. Add your name right now and let’s build the movement to fight back! What does it mean to be part of the resistance to Trump? When people are attacked for who they are, or where they come from, we will fight. When the Administration hands over our clean air, water, and lands to corporate polluters, we will fight. When human rights, civil rights, and voting rights are under attack, we will fight. When the interests of Wall Street and corporate conglomerates are placed ahead of working families and the health of our planet, we will fight. It means taking action. I’m going to be on the front lines of these fights in the U.S. Senate, and I’m going to need you with me. Join me and let’s stand up for our values together! Jeff
From despair to determination
Like you, I'm stunned. This is a dark and disturbing moment for our country, and you have every right to feel the way that you do right now. This election result is troubling in what it says about American values and what it means for our future. But that's not a reason to despair. It's a reason to work even harder. It's going to be more important than ever in the wake of this election that we stand up for equality, diversity, and justice. That we love and support our fellow citizens, immigrants, refugees, and anyone fearing a surge of hate, discrimination, and exclusion. It's up to us to fight for the values we cherish and the progressive vision we hold dear. We must renew our fight for a We the People democracy that responds to the real needs of working families, not the powerful and wealthy special interests. If this election shows us anything, it's how many people feel left behind by an economy that only makes the rich richer and a political system that consistently ignores their n
