Take Action Now gives you three meaningful actions you can take each week, whatever your schedule. This week, you can call your elected officials to demand that they fight for net neutrality, attend a protest to support the Dreamers, and get started on a campaign to transition your community to 100 percent renewable energy.

Sign up here to get actions like these in your inbox every Tuesday.

NO TIME TO SPARE?

With fifty senators now committed to repealing the FCC’s plan to dismantle net neutrality, we only need one Republican Senator to pass a bill in that body and move our fight to the House. Find out where your senators and representative stand, then call and demand that they vote to save net neutrality.

GOT SOME TIME?

The government spending bill is expiring this Friday, January 19, and Republicans will need Democratic votes to keep the government running. That gives us a crucial opportunity to finally pass the Dream Act and give undocumented youth permanent protection that doesn’t depend on the whims of the administration or the courts. Find a local #NoDreamNoDeal action near you on January 17 or 18 and sign up to demand that your members of Congress stand with Dreamers.

READY TO DIG IN?

The day after President Trump’s first State of the Union, people across the country will gather to watch something much more inspiring: Fossil Free Fast, an event focused on the state of the climate movement and the path ahead to a fossil fuel–free world. You can join the movement by hosting a watch party. Gather with your neighbors to livestream the event featuring Senator Bernie Sanders and activists Bill McKibben and Varshini Prakash, then use a detailed toolkit to begin a campaign to make your community fossil-fuel free. 350.org will even follow up afterward to help with your next steps. Click here to sign up to host your own Fossil Free Fast watch party or to find one near you.
