QUICK ACTIONS

July Calls Us To Action!

Youth-centered calls to action to ignite the next generation of kind & courageous leaders.

Published: Updated:

Co-Created by Shannon Brescher Shea & Ashia Ray

STAY CURIOUS, STAND BRAVE & SMASH THE KYRIARCHY

You give us hope

Let's talk with our kids about how the small everyday decisions we make can accumulate into a world-changing impact. Knowing we're in this together, each making tiny steps toward courageous, radical kindness - we're not alone!

This July, we focus on themes of Interdependence, Climate Justice, Animal Rights, and Taking Local Action.

PETITION via MOMS RISING

Sign a letter to Congress to #ProtectSNAP

"SNAP helps pull families out of poverty and provides food to those who are struggling financially. In fact, nearly two-thirds of SNAP benefits go to families with children.

We need to make our voices heard to Congress: Hands off SNAP!"

PETITION via SUNRISE MOVEMENT

Biden: Declare A Climate Emergency

Demand President Biden both declare a climate emergency and also use the full power of the DPA (Defense Production Act) to expedite the transition to renewable energy.

PETITION via ULTRAVIOLET

Protect Youth Access To Reproductive Care

The Abortion Justice Act will ensure that anyone seeking care will be able to get it when they need it, where they need it, and without worry about cost or insurance denials.

TEMPLATE E-LETTER via ADVOCATES FOR YOUTH

Demand Congress to Protect LGBTQi+ Youth

The Equality Act would make it illegal to discriminate against LGBTQI+ people in employment, housing, schools, restaurants, shelters and other public accommodations. (This kind of discrimination is completely legal in more than 30 states right now).

SHARE OUT via SIERRA CLUB

Stop the Mountain Valley Pipeline

"Protect communities and clean water from the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP)! Tell federal regulators to deny MVP's latest scheme to continue building this dirty, dangerous, over-budget fracked gas pipeline."

AMPLIFY YOUR ACTION
