PGA must move 2022 PGA Championship from Trump Bedminster

In 2014 the PGA of America awarded Trump Bedminster the 2022 PGA championship.

No Walls, No Extinction! Demand Safe Passage for Wildlife

According to a recent U.N. report, as many as one million plant and animal species on Earth are at risk of extinction—many of them within decades.

That’s why, today, I’m requesting your support for legislation that can quickly and effectively make a much-needed difference for America’s imperiled wildlife....
