Fight for an End to Gun Violence in Your Community

You can also call your representative in the House to demand they fight for net neutrality, and join the Poor People’s Campaign.


This week’s Take Action Now focuses on state and local solutions to gun violence, next steps in the fight for net neutrality, and the Poor People’s Campaign.

Take Action Now gives you three meaningful actions you can take each week, whatever your schedule. Sign up here to get actions like these in your inbox every Tuesday.


Last week, the Senate voted to overturn the FCC’s decision to destroy net neutrality. Now, the fight moves to the House. Check out Electronic Frontier Foundation’s website to see where your representative stands, then give them a call at (202) 224-3121.


People around the country demonstrated at statehouses yesterday to mark the second week of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. Tonight at 7:30 pm, the campaign continues with a teach-in on this week’s theme: the connections between poverty and systemic racism. Sign up to attend either in DC or anywhere in the world via livestream.


On Friday, the country mourned yet again when a student at Santa Fe High School shot and killed ten of his classmates and teachers and wounded at least thirteen others. While many members of Congress continue to offer little more than the usual “thoughts and prayers” (at least until we vote them out of office), we can fight for change in our own communities. Get started by using the Giffords Law Center’s annual gun law scorecard to look up the laws in your state, then check out Indivisible’s guide to state action on gun control or connect with local actions through groups such as Community Justice Reform Coalition or Moms Demand Action.

Thank you for reading The Nation!

We hope you enjoyed the story you just read. It’s just one of many examples of incisive, deeply-reported journalism we publish—journalism that shifts the needle on important issues, uncovers malfeasance and corruption, and uplifts voices and perspectives that often go unheard in mainstream media. For nearly 160 years, The Nation has spoken truth to power and shone a light on issues that would otherwise be swept under the rug.

In a critical election year as well as a time of media austerity, independent journalism needs your continued support. The best way to do this is with a recurring donation. This month, we are asking readers like you who value truth and democracy to step up and support The Nation with a monthly contribution. We call these monthly donors Sustainers, a small but mighty group of supporters who ensure our team of writers, editors, and fact-checkers have the resources they need to report on breaking news, investigative feature stories that often take weeks or months to report, and much more.

There’s a lot to talk about in the coming months, from the presidential election and Supreme Court battles to the fight for bodily autonomy. We’ll cover all these issues and more, but this is only made possible with support from sustaining donors. Donate today—any amount you can spare each month is appreciated, even just the price of a cup of coffee.

The Nation does not bow to the interests of a corporate owner or advertisers—we answer only to readers like you who make our work possible. Set up a recurring donation today and ensure we can continue to hold the powerful accountable.

Thank you for your generosity.
