Women’s health care providers, including Planned Parenthood, are essential to providing critical services to women.

Support Comprehensive Immigration Reform

President Trump has announced plans to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, a deeply misguided means of addressing the very real challenges facing our immigration system. Urge your Members of Congress to support immigration reform that is truly comprehensive, and that reflects our values as Americans and as Reform Jews.

Take Action: Urge Congress to Support Sentencing Reform

Urge members of the 115th Congress to reintroduce legislation to reduce mandatory minimums for nonviolent offenses, offer judges more discretion in setting sentences and make meaningful reforms to the juvenile justice system.

Currently, federal law does not explicitly prohibit discrimination in employment, housing, public accommodations, federal funding, education, credit, and jury selection based on sexual orientation and gender identity. The Equality Act would amend existing civil rights laws to protect LGBT people from discrimination. 

Despite President Obama's 2012 executive order to protect DREAMers, participants in and applicants to DACA are once again vulnerable for deportation. Urge your Members of Congress to support the Bridge Act (S. 128/H.B. 496), a bipartisan piece of legislation that would allow DACA recipients and those eligible for DACA to apply for “provisional protected presence” and work authorization for a three-year period.

Urge your members of Congress to support legislation providing $3 billion to the Green Climate Fund, which will help the poorest global populations adapt to the negative consequences of climate change.
