Tell the GOP: No More Hate Bills
Republicans tried and failed to deny marriage equality to all Americans, now they’re looking for any way possible to discriminate against LGBT people. Join Senate Democrats calling on the end of local “hate bills” and passage of the federal non-discrimination act, The Equality Act. The Obama administration recently stepped in to protect the rights of LGBT youth in schools. But the Republican’s backlash was swift. It’s clear this isn’t a fight that will end soon. It’s time to stand united to tell the GOP that the LGBT community deserves equality across every state in this nation. The Equality Act would prevent state and local municipalities from discriminating against their citizens based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Have your voice heard! Sign the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee’s petition to say no to “hate bills” and yes to the Equality Act! By signing on, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee will keep you updated on our efforts to elect a Democratic Senate that will help bring equality to every state.
Demand a Hearing for Obama’s Nominee
For the last 40 years it’s taken an average of 67 days for the Senate to give a hearing to the President’s nominee for the Supreme Court. The GOP doesn’t seem to care. President Obama did his job. He nominated an experienced, centrist judge that both Republicans and Democrats have praised in the past. The GOP doesn’t seem to care. Join Senate Democrats in demanding that Republicans give President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee a hearing. It’s time the GOP did their jobs! Everywhere in America, if someone refuses to do their job they are quickly relieved of their duties. It’s time we demanded the same standards for our elected officials. We elect Senators to govern, not ignore their Constitutional duties. Considering President Obama’s nominee is not optional. Republicans need to start doing their jobs. Sign this petition to show you’ll fight back against the GOP’s shameful obstructionism. Demand they show some respect and give President Obama’s nominee a hearing!

Stand Up Against Trump’s Hateful Rhetoric
Donald Trump is now the presumptive Republican nominee, meaning he is one election away from becoming President. He’s already started to recruit support in the Senate! Democrats must fight back and retake the Senate in 2016 to guard against this nightmare scenario. From breaking up families through deportation to disrespecting women on a daily basis, Trump will tear down any progress we’ve seen under Obama. We cannot allow for the possibility of a Trump presidency and a Republican-led Senate to exist together. We must stand strong against Trump and retake the Senate majority. Stand with Senate Democrats and let’s fight for progressive principles in the 2016 election. Senate Republicans shut down the government in 2013 and continue to regularly attack progressive causes, such as women’s healthcare and Obamacare. A President Trump would take their aggression and rhetoric to a whole new level. Sign this petition to show you’ll fight back against Trump and his GOP allies in the Senate. Help make a Democratic Senate a reality in 2016. By signing on, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee will keep you updated on our efforts to retake the Senate in 2016. From breaking up families through deportation to disrespecting women on a daily basis, Trump will tear down any progress we’ve seen under Obama.

Defend Women’s Healthcare Rights from the GOP
Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner for President, stated in an interview that he would support “some form of punishment” for women who have an abortion, were it outlawed. This is not a statement to dismiss lightly, like most Donald Trump positions tend to be. This is a direct assault on women’s healthcare rights. Stand with Senate Democrats in defending a woman’s right to make their own choices when it comes to their healthcare. This fight for women’s healthcare isn’t new. Republicans have attacked Planned Parenthood for years, completely discounting the lifesaving services the group provides to millions of women. While Donald Trump is the one who most overtly voiced his anti-abortion position, it can’t be forgotten that all of the GOP candidates stand with him as fierce anti-abortion politicians. Republicans are unified in the fight to limit women’s healthcare rights. We need to stand together to make sure women have their voices heard. Sign this petition to show you defend women’s healthcare! Fight back against Donald Trump and the GOP’s constant attacks! By signing on, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee will keep you updated on our efforts to defend women’s healthcare at all costs.
Tell Republicans: Do Your Jobs NOW
Despite the divisive and disastrous comments Donald Trump has said, GOP Senators from across the country have said again and again that they would back Trump if he were the GOP nominee. GOP Senators are also working with Trump and Mitch McConnell to “delay, delay, delay” a Supreme Court nomination until he would take office. Join Senate Democrats in demanding that McConnell and Senate Republicans do their jobs now! McConnell and Senate Republicans think we should wait almost a year for a new president – which they hope will be a Republican. But with every passing primary election, it becomes clearer that Donald Trump is the Republican president that they’re waiting for. We can’t let Mitch McConnell and the Party of Trump win. Demand that Senate Republicans do their jobs NOW. Agree to vote on President Obama’s nominee! By signing on, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee will keep you up to date on our efforts to take back the Senate in 2016.
Defend Elizabeth Warren’s Accomplishments
Elizabeth Warren’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has helped countless Americans avoid becoming victims to predatory lenders and shady credit card companies. So naturally, the CFPB has come under fire by the GOP, big banks, and their lobbyists. Join Senate Democrats in defending the CFPB from the GOP and big banks. Because of its success protecting consumers, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has come under attack from a shady group sponsored by special interests that have been investigated by the CFPB. We have to make sure we don’t lose the progress we’ve made. Stand with Elizabeth Warren and denounce the ugly attacks against the CFPB. Republicans can deny and lie all they want, but it’s clear the CFPB helps Americans navigate the treacherous terrain of loans and credit cards. The CFPB is in place to help average Americans deal with these complicated institutions. Join Senate Democrats in standing up for Elizabeth Warren and the CFPB. Make sure the corrupt organizations aligned with the GOP fail in their attempts to manipulate the American people. By signing this petition, the DSCC will keep you up to date on efforts to protect consumers and the CFPB.
Tell the GOP: Let Americans VOTE!
Republicans are making it harder for ordinary Americans to vote all across the country. The Voting Rights Act has helped support minorities and disenfranchised voters affect change for decades, and now it is under attack. Join the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in supporting voter rights for all. In 1965, Congress and President Lyndon Johnson took a huge step forward in ensuring American’s constitutional right to vote. But two years ago, the Supreme Court reversed half a century of progress by allowing states with a history of discrimination to enact sweeping voting laws without federal approval. Already we’re seeing voter ID laws expand and polling places close, all in an effort to disenfranchise minorities and likely democratic voters. These policies are un-American and we can’t allow Republicans to obstruct our freedom to choose our elected officials. Join the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in protecting every American's constitutional right to vote. By signing this petition, the DSCC will keep you up to date on Democrats’ efforts to ensure that all Americans can vote.
Stand Up to Trump’s Treatment of Women and Immigrants
Donald Trump has jumped into the national spotlight through his GOP presidential campaign, wasting no time in offending everyone from immigrants to women in America. Join the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in denouncing Trump’s disgusting remarks. His remarks about women are even too extreme for FoxNews. In one presidential debate, Trump was asked him to explain the times he’s referred to women as “fat pigs,” “dogs,” “slobs,” and “disgusting animals.” He only responded with more misogyny. Trump’s deplorable comments don’t stop at women. He has referred to immigrants as “drug dealers” and “rapists.” Such offensive language shouldn’t be tolerated from someone in a daily conversation, let alone from a man running for President. This is unacceptable and everyone, especially the Republicans that Trump represents, should be offended. Join the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in telling Trump that America will not tolerate his comments. By signing this petition, the DSCC will keep you up to date on Democrats’ efforts to protect women’s health and bring about comprehensive immigration reform.
