Dear [[First_Name]], Why isn't there anyone in charge of the U.S. response to public health issues, like ebola? Because President Obama's nomination for U.S. surgeon general, Dr. Vivek Murthy, has been blocked in the Senate for many months. One reason for this is that Murthy is disliked by t

Mon, 08/25/2014 - 09:34
Dear [[First_Name]], Thanks to you, the Minnesota gun violence prevention movement had a landmark legislative victory in 2014. We passed HF 3238, a bill to get guns out of the hands of domestic abusers and stalkers. We've still got much more to do -- but together, with people power, we can make
