Trump and his enablers in Congress are gearing up for an attack on the Endangered Species Act.

Any day now, Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) could introduce a bill that would gut our protections for gray wolf, Florida manatee and our iconic bald eagle.

We need your help to stop Trump and Congress from harming wildlife!

Tell your Senators: Don’t gut the Endangered Species Act!

Headlines report that due to chaos created by the Trump administration, costs are rising and some Americans might not have access to health insurance through Healthcare.gov next year.

The Trump Administration has the power to ensure that every American continues to have health insurance options through the Marketplaces created by the Affordable Care Act. Please sign this letter and urge the Trump Administration to do two things:

  1. Work with state and insurance company officials
  2. Issue a regulation that empowers the Administration to negotiate with insurance companies to ensure consumers in all areas have adequate coverage options

Lush Cosmetics is a growing business. It provides consumers with high quality soaps, scrubs, and other beauty products. Along with being a top of the notch, all natural, wonderful scented business, Lush supports a myriad of causes that fight climate change, unjust legislation, and other social justice related fights.

For a limited time, Lush Cosmetics is leading a movement titled “Death =/= Justice”, supporting the fight against the death penalty. Screen Shot 2017-06-10 at 1.31.13 PM

Here is a excerpt from Lush’s page about their campaign:

We’re all more than the worst thing we’ve ever done, because all human beings are capable of change. If our criminal justice system is to change, it should be designed not just to punish, but to also rehabilitate those who’ve committed crimes. There should always be the opportunity for rehabilitation, redemption and grace. We have the capacity to hold people accountable and separate dangerous people from society without foreclosing that opportunity.

So, do we continue down a path that has failed repeatedly to produce results? Do we continue with an institution that inflicts harm? The death penalty traumatizes everyone it touches: victim survivors, prosecutors, defense lawyers, prison workers and families. Former wardens, guards and execution team members report severe damage to their mental and physical health because of the stress and trauma of participating in executions and killing prisoners. It doesn’t have to be this way. The death penalty is an old-fashioned, outdated, harmful practice, and it must be abolished.

Sign the petition or pick up the limited edition 31 States Bath Bomb and join our efforts to put the focus on healing. We don’t need to kill people to teach people that killing is wrong.
