NO TIME TO SPARE?
In the run-up to tomorrow’s Supreme Court arguments on President Trump’s Muslim ban, the ACLU has collected stories from people whose lives have been upended by it. They include parents unable to visit their children, married couples forcibly separated, students torn between their studies and being able to see their family, and grandparents who’ve never met their grandchildren. Read these heart-wrenching stories, then share them through Facebook, Twitter (#NoMuslimBanEver), or over e-mail.
GOT SOME TIME?
Today, over 100 farmworker women and domestic workers will meet with members of Congress. They traveled to the capital as part of a campaign led by the National Domestic Workers Alliance and Alianza Nacional de Campesinas to demand that lawmakers expand sexual-harassment protections that currently exclude workers in their professions and leave many vulnerable to harassment and abuse. Join the campaign by writing a letter to Congress echoing their demands.
