No SCOTUS Nomination Until After 2018 Midterm Elections

In 2016, this was Sen. Mitch McConnell’s statement on the death of Justice Antonin Scalia and President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court: "The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president." We demand that this Congress refuse to seat a Supreme Court justice until after the American people have a voice in the mid-term elections.

Wells Fargo, stop financing prison corporations profiting off the pain and separation of families!

We are outraged by Wells Fargo’s role in financing CoreCivic and GEO Group. Private prison companies hold contracts to operate hundreds of prisons, jails, and immigration detention centers across the country that are being used to incarcerate and separate families. Private prison industry leaders CoreCivic and GEO Group depend on debt financing from banks like yours to conduct their day-to-day business operations, finance new facilities, and acquire smaller companies. An analysis of U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings over the past 10 years shows that Wells Fargo has played a leading role in financing these debts. In doing so,...
