America is in grave danger...

"The states’ rights theory embraced by slaveholding states before the US Civil War and later used to defend racial segregation is again threatening civil rights and the underpinnings of the American state. The doctrine is part of a right-wing legal insurgency attacking everything from federal regulation to the electoral system."

I'm trying to escape Twitter before the Musk takeover. I am big into progressive politics and follow mostly activists and reporters there. This platform seems like a promising way to connect with those who want to keep fighting for a decent society. Any Mastodon tips greatly appreciated.

The world is a scary place, y'all. Things are getting worse all the time.

The actions of an individual don't really amount to a hill of beans in the grand scheme of things, but we're not an individual, we're individuals.

We're a community. We're a movement. We fix things, we make the world better.

Let's demonstrate what a better world might be like. Let's live like we are the first generation of the next world, rather than the last generation of the old world.

#CallToAction :CTA:

CALL YOUR SENATORS AND DEMAND CODIFICATION OF ROE:

The Women’s Health Protection Act passed in the House. In February, it failed to overcome the filibuster in the Senate (unsurprisingly). But Senators did vote on the issue. reproductiverights.org/womens-

You can see who in both the House and Senate supported here: actforwomen.org/the-womens-hea

You can also see the cosponsors here: congress.gov/bill/117th-congre

Go get your phone and – if you have a Democratic Senator who voted for the bill, call them and – after thanking them – demand to know what they are doing right this very second to protect this constitutional right.

Remind them that the filibuster is a Senate rule – and a Senate rule should not override both voting rights and healthcare.

Bonus action for those of you with Senators who “relied” upon the lies made by the new justices that they saw Roe as settled precedent: call them and demand to know what they are doing to protect this constitutional right. #RoeVWade

The Supreme Court’s Legitimacy Is Already Lost -
Regardless of Roe falling, the leaks, and the Court’s disregard for the public it is supposed to serve, have already gone too far. slate.com/news-and-politics/20
