Here’s an ugly but powerful photo that should serve as some #MondayMotivation to rethink plastic and embrace solutions big and small. Taken by @claraveganna of Instagram, at the beach in Algarrobo, Spain. Two 1.5 liter plastic bottles found and filled up in just two hours.
Stacey Abrams made history Tuesday night by being the nation's first black woman nominated for governor by a major political party. She also upended Georgia's conventional wisdom about minority candidates.
If there was a conception that African-Americans will have trouble winning primaries in areas without many minorities, Abrams shattered it; she won everywhere and by huge margins. In fact, out of Georgia's 159 counties, she won all but 6 of them, besting rival Stacey Evans in many white enclaves across the state.
Subject: Tell HHS: Reject the abortion gag rule!
The Trump administration wants to BAN the word abortion from the doctor’s office. Yes, you read that right.
For clinics and hospitals that accept dollars from the Title X program–the nation’s program for affordable birth control and reproductive health care–doctors, nurses, and other health care providers would be banned from providing, counseling on, or referring any patient for an abortion. Even if it was needed to protect a woman’s health or save her life.
The Trump administration has backed off harmful rule changes before, such as allowing employers to steal workers’ tips–and it is accepting comments on the new proposal. If we generate fast, widespread outrage, we can force the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to back down. Can you join me?
