Please share this and then call all your friends and family and make sure they have voted for Joe Biden!!

In the last debate, Trump continued to lie and mislead Americans. Below are a few of statements that have been professionally fact-checked: Trump said Biden “wants to raise everyone’s taxes”. False. Biden’s plan is to raise taxes on people making over $400,000 (1% of the population) and on c...

SIGN NOW: Voting is a right we all share.

Now Trump is trying to make counting of absentee ballots stop after midnight on election day. It is bad enough that they won't accept ballots postmarked before the election--after all, that was the whole idea of cutting funding for the post office, so those absentee ballots wouldn't get there on time. If you haven't voted you still have time to kick this crook out of office and save our democracy. Sign this petition and then go vote for Joe Biden!!

Voting is a right we all share. We’ve been holding successful elections in good times and bad for more than 200 years. Nothing — not even a pandemic — should change that. We’re cutting this elec...

Survey: 82% of farmers suffered financial loss due to COVID-19

Trump administration’s patchwork drilling exemptions leave all states at risk

Trump went to Jupiter, FL and announced he was banning off-short drilling in southern states and therefore he was the "environmental president" of all time. Read below to see what he actually did. Another lie and another reason to vote him out of office!!

SELC joined dozens of conservation organizations and thousands of coastal communities, businesses, and elected representatives in condemning the Trump administration’s announcement leaving much of the coast vulnerable to the dangers of oil drilling.

Five of the top six American banks have pledged not to fund oil and gas drilling projects in the Arctic. Bank of America is the ONLY holdout – tell their CEO to do the right thing today.
