Hollywood rocked by writers strike as the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers refuses to meet union’s incredibly reasonable demands
For the first time since 2008, the Writers Guild of America has gone on strike after negotiations with the hugely profitable corporations on the other side of the table broke down. The meteoric rise of streaming has brought an influx of profits into Hollywood, but the people who actually labor away writing the movies and television shows we love have seen very little of the proceeds. The guild’s demands for fair wages, better working conditions, and safeguards against the rise of AI were categorically rejected as the two sides currently sit hundreds of millions of dollars apart. We stand with the writers. Solidarity forever!

Montana’s first transgender lawmaker files lawsuit against state over censure
Democratic State Rep. Zooey Zephyr is suing GOP lawmakers who have ruthlessly targeted her for being transgender. Eager to exploit the anti-trans mania sweeping across conservative America, Montana Republicans censured Zephyr, barred her from speaking or debating crucial issues, and banned her from the House for the crime of standing up for trans kids. In announcing the lawsuit, Zephyr said she is fighting for her 1st Amendment rights and the rights of her “11,000 constituents” whose voices must be heard. This is what courage looks like.

Oklahoma joins anti-trans red wave as Republican governor signs gender-affirming care ban for kids

Treasury Secretary Yellen warns US could hit debt ceiling by June 1st
Republicans are still holding America and the broader global financial system hostage in the hopes of extracting draconian concessions from President Biden to gut the nation’s social safety net and roll back his administration’s signature achievements. If a deal is not struck, the US could default on its debts for the first time in history, upending global financial markets and shattering trust in the US as a global business partner.

Right-wing judge and former state GOP official sentences Arkansas student to 10 days in jail for peaceful protest of anti-trans policies
The outrageous sentence for a college student fighting for trans lives is a harsh reminder of how ideological right-wing judges will exploit an overly punitive criminal “justice” system to strip us of our right to protest and silence speech they don’t want to hear.

Rep. Colin Allred set to launch Texas Senate run against Ted Cruz

Freshwater fish contaminated with toxic “forever chemicals” found in nearly every state
PFAS, human-made toxic chemicals that last so long in the environment and people that they’ve been dubbed “forever chemicals,” are basically everywhere now. Corporations have literally been pumping poison into our air and waterways on a daily basis for decades, contaminating freshwater fish in nearly every state. PFAS have been linked to kidney and testicular cancer, liver damage, and even higher cholesterol, and more than 95% of Americans who’ve been tested have detectable levels in their blood.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders “stomped” Arkansas’ poorest during the “worst session ever”
In her short time in office, Gov. Sanders has waged a heinous war on the poor, stripped away reproductive rights, attacked the LGBTQ community, gutted the public education system, and enriched for-profit prisons. In every sense, her tenure has been an unmitigated disaster. While she clearly sees herself in the Oval Office one day, she truly belongs in the dustbin of history.

Today’s Action: Tell President Biden to declare a climate emergency!

The past few years have produced severe, record-breaking weather events that are only getting worse. If our legislators continue to ignore the looming climate crisis, these severe weather patterns will become the norm. Flash flooding, droughts, wildfires, failing infrastructure, pandemics — all symptoms of a sick planet that will wreak havoc and suffering on millions of people. As if the situation wasn’t dire enough, last March the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a final warning to corporations and the federal government: we must stop using fossil fuels or we’ll reach the point of no return by the early 2030s.

This issue goes beyond party lines. Our legislators must come together to ensure the United States is doing everything in its power to reverse the damage done to our planet by decades of rampant fossil fuel exploitation.

To be clear, it is not the wealthy that will suffer most from these devastations — that burden will largely be shouldered by working-class families and marginalized communities. When life becomes untenable for the majority of the population, the ultra-rich will retreat to luxury bunkers that have been in the works for years.

We can’t afford to waste any more time.

Tell President Biden to declare a climate emergency NOW and urgently transition the country to renewable energy!
