WE WANT A CLEAN DREAMER ACT:  When Congress resumes next week, the Senate will still have the issue of the DREAMers to address.  “The Senate’s protracted debate last week deadlocked with a predictable flurry of finger-pointing and insults. But the chamber will likely reprise the fight ahead of the next and presumably final deadline to avoid another government shutdown on March 23.”  Let’s make sure our MoCs know that we want the DREAMers and their families saved.

EPA REMOVES CLIMATE CHANGE INFO FROM WEBSITE:  At a crucial moment for our planet’s future, the administrator of the EPA is someone who thought it was worth his time to personally oversee the removal of information on climate change from the agency’s websites. This is one of the greatest threats our country faces, and we need to make sure Scott Pruitt knows we know it. NextGen America is encouraging folks to submit public comments to the EPA opposing the repeal of Obama’s Clean Power Plan. Let’s let Polluting Pruitt hear our voices at this link.

ARM OUR TEACHERS?:  The president might have followed the instructions someone carefully printed on his cue cards and “listened” to the students and other gun control advocates at a meeting at the White House on Wednesday. And while he seems to be taking some small steps on policies that are opposed by the NRA, one proposal that should alarm us all is the idea of arming teachers. Let’s make sure our MoCs know that we do not want to solve gun violence issues with more guns, and that the role of a teacher is to educate students, not to shoot attackers.
