The attack against LAANE is consistent with the broader effort to cripple progressive causes and leaders. And as the recent assault on Planned Parenthood reminds us, there are people willing to do almost anything to achieve their aim. We need to send a strong message that secret attacks like these have no place in our democracy.
This petition in support of LAANE is co-sponsored by Alliance for Justice, People for the American Way, East Bay Alliance for a Sustainable Economy, the Center on Policy Initiatives, Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice, In the Public Interest, Partnership for Working Families and UNITE HERE.
