Secret Police have No Place in America

Sen. Jeff Merkley here from Oregon. We face a grave threat to our democracy. Donald Trump has deployed secret police in my home city of Portland, and is threatening to do it in other cities across America.

His Department of Homeland Security is using unidentified paramilitary forces to patrol the streets of Portland, Oregon and they’re throwing people into unmarked vehicles. They’re using tear gas and munitions against peaceful protesters. 

We know Trump has coddled dictators like Putin in Russia and Duterte in the Philippines, and now he’s trying to act like them. 

The American people must speak out and say NO! We must defend the Constitution. 

Will you join me and Democracy for America and make your voice heard right now? Tell Trump that secret police have no place in America and tell Congress to prohibit these police state tactics.

When you sign this petition, you’ll be joining tens of thousands (hopefully, hundreds of thousands) of Americans demanding the protection of our democracy. I will stand up and make sure that my colleagues know what’s at stake and how many Americans are standing with us.

This is the stuff of anti-democratic nightmares. We must fight back. Sign this petition now!

Your Senators Can Help Stop Netanyahu’s Illegal Annexation

Last month, DFA joined a petition with our allies at Americans for Peace Now to stop Netanyahu from unilaterally annexing parts of the West Bank.

Because of the work that DFA members like you have done to help our allies build this campaign and create grassroots pressure, some United States Senators are starting to take action.

Senator Chris Van Hollen has introduced an amendment that would block the Netanyahu government from using any U.S. aid to fund their illegal annexation plans.

This amendment is backed by 13 senators, and now we NEED your help to get more Senators to cosponsor the Van Hollen amendment.

Tell your Senators to cosponsor the Van Hollen amendment or thank them if they already have.

Due to support from the Trump administration, Netanyahu and his far-right allies see this moment as an opportunity to permanently seize Palestinian land, but thankfully, his annexation plan has temporarily stalled.

With this current delay, it is very crucial that DFA members and our allies at Americans for Peace Now use this opportunity to help bring an end to the threat of annexation.

If the Israeli Government knows loud and clear that the U.S. Senate fully opposes their plan, we can help permanently prevent the illegal and unilateral annexation that was supposed to officially happen on July 1st.

The rest of the world has condemned and resisted this plan, let's do our part and make sure that the United States Senate does the same.

Join DFA and Americans for Peace Now in telling our Senators to cosponsor the Van Hollen amendment.

By contacting your Senator you will show them that Americans recognize the rights of Palestinians while also caring deeply about achieving peace between Israel and Palestine.

Thank you for standing together against the annexation of the West Bank,

Senators Burr and Loeffler Must Resign!

Weeks before Americans across the country were homeschooling their kids, stocking up on medicine, and filing for unemployment, Republican Senators Richard Burr and Kelly Loeffler decided to use their inside information to sell off millions of dollars in stocks.

It’s outrageous. If you’re as angry as we are, take a moment to read below and add your name to our joint petition with Robert Reich calling for Burr and Loeffler’s immediate resignations.

Sign the petition: Support the Green New Deal


DFA-endorsed Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is shaking things up again.

This time, she's leading the fight for a Green New Deal: a transformative plan to put our country on the path towards a clean energy future by investing in renewable energy, a national smart grid, public works projects, and tens of millions of green jobs.

This proposal is a win-win for our environment and economy, and it’s our greatest opportunity to avert the worst impacts of climate change. That’s why 35 members of Congress and more than 300 local officials from 40 states have stepped up to support it. Will you?

Add your name right now to join DFA and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in supporting a Green New Deal today.

Tell the Senate: No border wall funding in the must-pass government spending bill

Republicans are hoping that the threat of a holiday season shutdown will be enough to convince moderate Democrats to cave on border wall funding. And Trump has even floated the idea of sweetening the deal by offering some sort of protection for Dreamers in exchange.

The Trump administration's treatment of immigrants and refugees at the border has been morally reprehensible. Democrats must not be complicit in it by providing any sort of funding that would enable it to continue. Period, full stop.

No matter what kind of deal Trump tries to make or what kinds of threats he poses, our message to Trump and the Senate must be loud and clear: No wall. No more detention beds. No more border agents.

If you’re with us, add your name now to urge the U.S. Senate to do the right thing and refuse to support funding for Trump’s border wall this December.

Sign the petition: Tell advertisers to stop working with Sinclair

The largest television operator in the United States, Sinclair Broadcast Group, is nothing more than a front for pro-Trump propaganda disguised as local news.

For example, this week Sinclair required 200 of their stations to run a horrific segment supporting the use of tear gas against refugee women and children on the border. Here's just a small preview of the piece, featuring long time Trump surrogate Boris Epshteyn:

"The fact of the matter is that this is an attempted invasion of our country."

This is the type of disinformation millions of Americans hear when they tune into their local news right now. All they want are objective updates on their community, local sports teams, and more -- but instead, they’re getting corrupt, pro-Trump propaganda that would make even Fox News blush.

We’re launching a new campaign demanding that Sinclair advertisers end their relationships with this propaganda network. Add your name here and together, we’ll send a message to these advertisers now:
