Please call and write your Members of Congress and request they sign on to critical legislation ensuring that no president can unilaterally launch a nuclear war. HR 669/S200, the Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act of 2017. As president of the United States, Donald Trump currently has supreme authority to preemptively launch a nuclear strike. NO president should have the exclusive power to end all life.

ACT NOW before this Session of Congress Ends. The Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Reauthorization Act (JJDPA) of 2015, S. 1169, is ready for a vote in the Senate. It is the core of nearly everything the federal government does in Juvenile Justice, but it's past due for re-authorization.

Recently, the Senate unanimously passed S. 1635, the Department of State Authorization for 2016 containing a core part of the Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act (GAP Act), S. 2551, which is one of our top peacebuilding legislative priorities. The Senate is now back in session and we need you to call and write your Senators, urging them to go further by fully passing S. 2551, the GAP Act.

Despite starting out with major bipartisan momentum, the Sentencing Reform and CORRECTIONS Act, S. 2123, has still not been brought up for a vote. This is the closest we've come to major reform of mandatory minimums in decades, and we can't let this chance escape us.
