The Midwest comes to L.A.! The senior US Senator from Michigan, Debbie Stabenow, will be in the Palisades tomorrow, Wednesday, 2/21, and all are invited.
Senator Stabenow is a strong voice in a state that, disappointingly, >barely< went for Trump in 2016. You can imagine how much emboldened and deep-pocketed Republicans would love to flip her seat. Not on our watch! Join her continued fight for women and working families in Michigan and across the country.
The hosts say they ...very much hope you can swing by to support this swing state!
George and Amal Clooney will march with Parkland students, donate $500,000

Read this blog post on gun safety law reform from PPDC board member Carol Olson Coote.
Here's an idea: send a check for "thoughts & prayers" to a member of Congress who has received generous NRA funding to keep America from enacting gun safety laws: https://www.nytimes.com/…/thoughts-prayers-nra-funding-sena…
Senator Feinstein, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, released the following statement:
“We’re introducing an updated Assault Weapons Ban for one reason: so that after every mass shooting with a military-style assault weapon, the American people will know that a tool to reduce these massacres is sitting in the Senate, ready for debate and a vote.
“This bill won’t stop every mass shooting, but it will begin removing these weapons of war from our streets."...
House Member Gabby Giffords wrote that the cycle of gun violence will only end when politicians realize they have more to fear from you than they do the gun lobby. They have to know that siding with the gun lobby will cost them their jobs.
If you can make the below pledge, sign today:
"I promise you that if we cannot make our communities safer from gun violence with the Congress we have now, I will use every means available to make sure we have a different Congress, one that puts communities' interests ahead of the gun lobby's. I will Vote Courage in November and support candidates who will stand up to the gun lobby and take action to make our communities safer."
"Multiple bills have been introduced in Congress by Dems to address gun violence. We can't even get a hearing or vote on them. Congress' continuing inaction on gun safety is a dereliction of duty." -- Rep. Ted Lieu
Definition of complicity: Watching mass shootings over and over again and doing nothing. Multiple bills have been introduced in Congress by Dems to address gun ...violence. We can't even get a hearing or vote on them. Congress' continuing inaction on gun safety is a dereliction of duty. https://www.google.com/…/florida-school-shooting-brings-yea…
