This week the news media has been in a tizzy discussing Trump’s alleged “pivot” and his newfound “independence,” as evidenced by his sharing Chinese food and a deal with “Chuck & Nancy.” Yeah, sure. PAGEpals can’t be fooled – Trump is just as vicious as ever. We’ll keep watch, and won’t let up one inch until the Dreamers & their families are safe, until no one fears violence from those sworn to protect us, and until and everyone has access to affordable healthcare – among other goals!
Below, we share some opportunities to keep supporting immigrants, continue our fight against climate change, and more. As always, our weekly actions are curated for US-Americans abroad and global citizens. If this is your first time receiving a PAGE email, please check out our websiteand resources for starting a PAGE group.
