  • Racial discrimination in federal housing and hiring was banned by President John Kennedy and President Lyndon Johnson
  • Hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children had deportation orders halted by President Barack Obama
  1. We also need to tell our Senators how we expect them to vote when Supreme Court candidates are being confirmed. Whether it’s by making calls to the Capitol, to district offices, emailing or even showing up in person, we must hold our elected officials accountable.
  2. Lastly, we can join rallies in support or opposition to executive orders, write blog posts, or tell the stories of people who are affected by executive orders. Speaking truth to power is an important part of what it means to be American.
