Activism across the nation

Posted on July 25, 2017

COMMON CAUSE ACTIVISTS delivered thousands of petitions to Sen. Susan Collins’s office (right) and four other key senators, demanding an independent inves­tigation into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election.

Common Cause activists around the country teamed up to deliver 600,000 petitions to tell key senators to vote against Jeff Sessions’ confirmation.

From Alaska to Florida, Nevada to North Carolina, con­cerned Americans spoke out against Jeff Sessions’ record of fighting laws he’d be charged with enforcing as Attorney General of the United States. Senator Sessions’ history and policy positions on voting rights, civil rights, and much more make clear that he will not uphold a fair and equal rule of law for every American as Attorney General.
