Since President Trump announced the end of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), immigrant youth have had to contend with tremendous uncertainty while both Congress and the courts debate their future. For the time being, current DACA recipients can renew—but a lawsuit brought by the state of Texas threatens to end even that. Donate to United We Dream’s DACA Renewal Fund and help recipients with the $495 fee needed to renew their status (if you or someone you know has DACA, UWD lists organizations and resources that can help).


If Brett Kavanaugh is nominated to the Supreme Court, there’s a likely chance that Roe v. Wade will be overturned. To make clear the profound damage this would do, people across the country are joining Planned Parenthood to record voicemails or write letters to their senators explaining why access to abortion is absolutely critical. Listen to some of the stories here and record or write your own here.


To defeat Kavanaugh, senators need to know that thousands of their constituents are demanding a rejection of his nomination. On Sunday, August 26, people across the country will gather for protests and rallies to make that clear. Find a Unite For Justice event near you and sign up to attend or, better yet, volunteer. If there isn’t yet one organized near you, use the Unite for Justice coalition’s guide to make it happen.

Thank you for reading The Nation

We hope you enjoyed the story you just read, just one of the many incisive, deeply-reported articles we publish daily. Now more than ever, we need fearless journalism that shifts the needle on important issues, uncovers malfeasance and corruption, and uplifts voices and perspectives that often go unheard in mainstream media.

Throughout this critical election year and a time of media austerity and renewed campus activism and rising labor organizing, independent journalism that gets to the heart of the matter is more critical than ever before. Donate right now and help us hold the powerful accountable, shine a light on issues that would otherwise be swept under the rug, and build a more just and equitable future.

For nearly 160 years, The Nation has stood for truth, justice, and moral clarity. As a reader-supported publication, we are not beholden to the whims of advertisers or a corporate owner. But it does take financial resources to report on stories that may take weeks or months to properly investigate, thoroughly edit and fact-check articles, and get our stories into the hands of readers.

Donate today and stand with us for a better future. Thank you for being a supporter of independent journalism.
