Urge Passage of For the People Act
Support trans, intersex and non-binary people during Pride Month
Biden has the power to prevent this dangerous misgendering on IDs – by directing all federal agencies to allow us to self-verify our own gender and to include a gender neutral "X" designation option on all federal IDs and records. 

For Pride month and for our everyday safety: Send a message urging President Biden to sign this executive order now. Use this link to send a message.
Advocate to End Qualified Immunity
Qualified immunity shields police officers and other government officials from liability by requiring proof an official violated “clearly established law” – putting the burden on victims to find a nearly identical court case that found the action unconstitutional. This is a key element of the architecture of impunity that amplifies police power and keeps them above the law, and disproportionately impacts those targeted most by law enforcement including people of color, particularly Black people, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ individuals.

As Congress approaches President Biden’s deadline for passing the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, it can and must take action by passing legislation that ends qualified immunity without exception. Send a message urging them to do so today.

Congress must take action to end qualified immunity without exception. Send a message to your representatives here.
Tell Congress: Close Unjustifiable ICE Detention Facilities
The Biden administration has a unique chance to shrink the architecture of immigrant detention and help repair the harm it’s caused. It can start with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) shutting down key detention facilities as soon as possible. Urge DHS to shut down key detention facilities ASAP. Send a message to the DHS here.
