The next week and a half is our best chance to pass the DREAM Act to protect hundreds of thousands of immigrant youth brought to the United States as children. These young immigrants are leading the fight and telling their own stories to inspire others to action. Head to and share these stories widely. Scroll down the page and with one click you can automatically tweet a short video to Representative Paul Ryan or Senator Mitch McConnell.


GOP senators want to pass their tax plan—a plan with huge benefits for the rich and little to offer the rest of us—this week. If Democrats stand strong against it, we only need three Republicans on our side to win. Use Indivisible’s call tool to contact the constituents of the Republicans most likely to be among those three. After you sign up, you’ll be connected to progressives in Alaska, Arizona, and West Virginia, and given a script you can use to convince them to call their senators today. Sign up to make phone calls here.


One of the most effective things you can do to defeat the Republican tax plan is show up. Join at “Tax Scam Caroling” events at senators’ offices and popular shopping areas across the country this week. Find an event near you here or click here to learn how you can plan your own.

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.
