  • Protect Workers and Your Constitutional Rights

    Exchanging money in front of capitol

    Make your voice heard: tell your lawmakers to strike the unsafe legal immunity provisions from the stimulus package.

    The constitution is under attack in Washington, DC. Mitch McConnell and his friends in the corporate lobby are plotting to use the COVID-19 crisis to remove your constitutional right to trial. They are seeking civil immunity for unsafe corporations that ignore safety procedures. Their scheme would endanger workers, subject your family to greater threat, and prolong the crisis and our economic recovery.

  • Save Money While Saving Lives

    Texans are driving far less during the COVID-19 pandemic. This means fewer miles traveled and less congested roads, which adds up to less risk for the insurance companies. Less risk should mean lower auto rates for all of us during this time. Some companies are offering rate relief, and it is a good idea to call your company to ask for a reduction in your auto insurance bill if you are driving less.

  • Safe Nursing Homes

    Safety for nursing home residents and staff must be a top priority for Texas lawmakers. These residents are our most vulnerable population and their care requires close contact. Nursing homes account for more than one-third of the COVID-19 infections in Texas, and more than 40% of COVID-19 deaths nationwide have been linked to nursing homes. Your voice can help protect those who are in the greatest need.

  • #AutoBodySafety

    The Department of Justice has recently proposed repealing a 1963 consent decree entered with major auto insurance groups to keep them from gaming the collision repair process. This decree has been instrumental in helping to protect American families for over half a century. Repealing it would be a giveaway to big insurance companies, further strengthening their power over us. We must tell the federal government to preserve the consent decree and to stand up for families, not bow down to insurers. Take one minute to send a letter to your federal officials, telling them to protect your rights.
