“Supporting Women Includes Opposing TPP”
by Rep. Louise Slaughter (N.Y.), The Hill, March 7, 2016
As we mark International Women’s Day on March 8, we should take this opportunity to reflect on the extraordinary achievements women are making. This year’s theme, Pledge for Parity, is a call that we should all rally around. Our pledge to support women across the world should include the promise to oppose the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
“Suppress Votes? I’d Rather Lose My Job”
by Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (WI), The New York Times, March 31, 2016
In 2013, the Supreme Court struck down a portion of this most recent authorization. If Congress doesn’t act soon, 2016 will be the first time since 1964 that the United States will elect a president without the full protections of the law. Modernizing the act to address the Supreme Court’s concerns should be one of Congress’s highest priorities

The leader of the “Moral Mondays” movement and a prominent New York minister are joining forces for a 15-state “moral revolution” tour to counter the nation’s conservative voices.
“Way too much of our national discourse has been poisoned by hateful language and policies,” said the Rev. William J. Barber II, who brought thousands to weekly protests at the North Carolina General Assembly, in an announcement. “True faith and true evangelicalism place love, justice, and compassion at the center of our public life.”
Rev. Barber is a speaker at EAD’s 2016 National Gathering.
