US, UK try to stem fallout from Silicon Valley Bank collapse
Governments in the UK and US took extraordinary steps to stop a potential banking crisis after the historic failure of Silicon Valley Bank, even as regulators announced that New York-based Signature Bank had also failed and was being seized on Sunday. At more than $110 billion in assets, Signature Bank is the third-largest bank failure in US history. In an effort to shore up confidence in the banking system, the Treasury Department, Federal Reserve, and FDIC said Sunday that all Silicon Valley Bank clients would be protected and able to access their money.

US to approve Alaska “carbon bomb” drilling project today

President Biden will approve a controversial oil drilling project in Alaska later today, one day after a series of protections against energy exploration were announced for the northern state and the Arctic. The $8 billion Willow project, led by energy giant ConocoPhillips, will be located inside the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska, a 23 million-acre area on the state’s North Slope that is the largest tract of undisturbed public land in the United States. What could possibly go horribly wrong?

Sean Hannity conveniently edits out startling Trump admission on Ukraine from Fox News interview
In unaired footage, the disgraced ex-president told the Fox News blowhard that he could have stopped the invasion of Ukraine by simply allowing Vladimir Putin to “take over” parts of the country, or, you know, abjectly capitulating to the authoritarian strongman’s imperial desires. Neat! Also worth nothing — the landgrab was essentially the “quo” Putin wanted for the “quid” of assisting Trump against Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016. Wonder why that bit got left on Hannity’s cutting room floor…

How one Texas county built a system that sends poor people to Death Row
Harris County, Texas, home to Houston, has executed more people than any other county in the United States, and its ramshackle indigent defense system has made it exceedingly likely that poor people facing the death penalty will receive shoddy representation, despite constitutional protections designed to ensure adequate access to a competent lawyer. In other words, money talks. If you can’t pay in cash, you’re likely to pay with something far more costly — your life.

Today’s Action: Tell Congress to deliver federal LGBTQ+ protections!

We’re only three months into 2023 and it’s already been a record-breaking year for anti-LGBTQ+ legislation. Republicans across the country are openly advocating for the ostracization and condemnation of one of America’s most vulnerable communities. There’s no reason that our government should be perpetuating hatred that forces more than 20 million people to be scared to literally exist.

Despite Democrats’ best effort to pass the Equality Act last congressional session, our elected officials have yet to deliver wide-reaching protections for LGBTQ+ people. With the onslaught of laws targeting LGBTQ+ freedoms, targeted mass shootings, and the deeply troubling rise in hate crimes, we simply can’t wait any longer to secure protections for our marginalized communities.

The ability to persecute others is not something that makes America “free.” What is important is the ability for all, regardless of identity, to live an equitable life. We have a very long way to go towards achieving that goal. The fact is, conservatives have been scapegoating and persecuting the oppressed for centuries — and doing so under the guise of religious freedom.

We must not allow protections for the LGBTQ+ community to fall by the wayside. Whether by reviving the Equality Act or putting forth new legislation, we must act swiftly. Every second Congress waits puts another person at risk.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your members of Congress and tell them to deliver federal LGBTQ+ protections as soon as possible!
