Take Urgent Action for Net Neutrality, Plus: A Thanksgiving Table DREAM Act Toolkit

Take Action Now gives you three meaningful actions each week.


This week, you can take urgent action to protect net neutrality, use your Thanksgiving to mobilize your family to fight for a clean Dream Act, and sign up to take the Dream Act fight to your representative’s doorstep.

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


FCC Chairman Ajit Pai just announced that the FCC will vote on his plan to gut net neutrality on December 14, only three weeks from now. To defend net neutrality—the concept that all content on the Internet be treated equally—we need action from Congress. Use this tool to demand that your representatives fight for the open Internet.


Sanctuary Homes, a project of Hand in Hand: the Domestic Employers Network and the National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA), has put together a toolkit to help you talk to your family about a clean Dream Act this Thanksgiving. Designed to follow the lead of Dreamers who are demanding protections while refusing to negotiate away the rights of other immigrants (which is what we mean when we say we want a “clean” Dream Act), the toolkit includes talking points, suggested scripts, directions for calling Congress, and important upcoming dates. You can access the toolkit here.


After you talk to your family, take deeper action to pass a clean Dream Act by joining or organizing a nonviolent direct action at your representative’s office on December 4 or 5. This is urgent. Because Republicans need Democratic votes to pass a spending bill by December 8, Democrats’ best shot at passing the Dream Act is in the next few weeks. To join the actions lead by Dreamers and organized by Our Revolution and various other progressive organizations, sign up here and someone will be in touch with next steps.

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.
