EMERGENCY PROTESTS: Tuesday, July 2

This is about the fabric of who we are. If we do not stop this criminal practice, everything else, education, healthcare, the economy, taxes, none of it has any significance. A lawless, criminal state is allowing human rights abuses. This must stop.
Families Belong Together

NEW revelations of ABHORRENT and willfully neglectful treatment of infants and children have just been revealed in a court filing.

Sick babies are languishing untreated for days in extreme cold temperatures, with guards refusing parents' requests to see a doctor and told to "just deal with it."1
Toddlers are wearing soiled clothes or stripping down because all their clothes, diapers, and baby formula are taken when parents arrive -- and no new clothes are provided.2

MoveOn, United We Dream, and the American Friends Service Committee have joined us to organize dozens of groups for an emergency mobilization at noon this Tuesday, July 2nd outside local Congressional offices to demand Congress CLOSE THE CAMPS.


The revelations in the court filing come from interviews conducted by attorneys who accessed the camps.
These are the children's own words:
  • 'The day after we arrived here, my baby began vomiting and having diarrhea. I asked to see a doctor and they did not take us. I asked again the next day and the guard said "She doesn't have the face of a sick baby. She doesn't need to see a doctor." My baby daughter has not had medicine since we first arrived. She has a very bad cough, fever and continues to vomit and have diarrhea.' (Age 16, female).2
  • 'I started taking care of [Name Redacted] (age 5) in the Ice Box after they separated her from her father. I did not know either of them before that. She was very upset. The workers did nothing to try to comfort her. I tried to comfort her and she has been with me ever since.' (Age 15, female).2
  • 'Three days ago my baby soiled his clothes. I had no place to wash the clothes so I could not put them back on my baby because when he went to the bathroom his poop came out of his diaper and all over his clothing. Since then, my baby of only three months has only been wearing a small little jacket made of t-shirt material. I have nothing else for my son to wear' (Age 17, female).2
We must do EVERYTHING WE CAN TO END THIS ABUSE. Please -- join us this Tuesday and let's close the camps:
FIND THE CLOSEST EVENT TO YOU AND TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW TO ATTEND.

See you there,

Hillary Clinton: How you can support immigrant and refugee children today

Wednesday marked one year since the United States District Court in the Southern District of California ordered ICE and the U.S. government to reunite an asylum-seeking mother and her seven-year-old daughter -- which they did, after months of waiting.
Meanwhile, hundreds of families are still waiting to be reunited, and more are being separated and sent to isolated detention centers. In the past few weeks, we’ve seen reports about CBP forcing children to take care of toddlers in holding cells, and DOJ lawyers actually trying to argue that the Trump administration doesn’t have an obligation to provide detained children with items as basic as blankets, toothbrushes, or soap.
Please make a donation to support the organizations working to protect children and families at the border.
Together, we've raised more than $700,000 this week that will help get basic resources, legal aid, and advocates to children at the border, among other things -- with our help, Families Belong Together has been able to cover the costs of flights for families finally being reunited and secure safe housing for vulnerable immigrants. Thank you for making that possible. It's critical that we provide a counter-point to the unconscionable things being done to refugee and immigrant families in our names.

Thank you,

Hillary Clinton: Families still belong together


There are amazing groups at the border and beyond doing critical work to defend the rights of immigrant and refugee children. If you can, please chip in to support a few of them today.

Some of the toughest and most rewarding conversations I've had over the last several years have been with children who had immigrated to the United States with their parents. They’ve told me about the harrowing journeys they had undertaken, the sacrifices their families had made, and their hopes and fears about their lives here. Over and over again, I’ve been struck by their bravery and their vulnerability.
I have thought of these children as this administration has instituted cruel and divisive policies meant to make finding refuge in the United States more difficult than ever before, and I've been heartbroken and horrified to read the news of children at the border being detained in appalling conditions. While it's hard to process that our country is committing such abuses -- and against children -- in our name, it's important that we not stop at outrage or heartbreak.
Last summer, we asked you to contribute to groups doing work to reunify and protect families at the border -- and together, we raised more than $1.5 million to provide affected families with supplies, legal aid, travel funds, and more. That work continues, and is just as critical, one year later. Today, I'm asking you to make a contribution that will be split across 11 organizations working toward immediate justice for immigrant families:

Hillary Clinton: Announcing the winners of our grant contest


Earlier this month, I went to a reunion at Wellesley College, my alma mater, where I celebrated alongside my classmates and considered how far we’ve come in fifty years. So many of the things we take for granted these days would have seemed far-fetched back then, and yet, we believed that progress was possible and that we could see it made real.

Our Onward Together partner organizations have been at the forefront of the fight for that progress these last few years. They’re recruiting and training hundreds of diverse candidates for office, mobilizing voters who may not otherwise feel engaged in the political process, fighting back against the administration's attacks on civil rights and access to the polls, and more. They’re organizing domestic workers, communities of color, young activists, and even campaign staffers. They are the future.

Today, I’m proud to announce the winners of our first-ever Onward Together grant contest: Color of Change PAC took first place, while Demand Justice, Run for Something, and Voto Latino will also receive prizes as runners-up. As always, your support makes it possible for us to fund these organizations that have been such bright spots recently, and I’m grateful to you for that.

Onward!

Hillary Clinton Quotes Yeats

This could not be more perfect.

DONALD Trump may have launched his 2020 re-election in Florida last night, but the US President's war of words with 2016 Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton shows no sign of abating.
Speaking at his official campaign launch in Orlando on Tuesday, the belittler-in-chief debuted an impression of "Crooked Hillary" as he once again took aim at her emails – prompting numerous "lock her up" chants from his crowd of supporters.
It came just a day after Mrs Clinton launched her own fresh broadside at the POTUS during an appearance at the 30th anniversary gala of the Irish Repertory Theater in New York on Monday night.
The event saw husband Bill honoured for his role in the Northern Ireland peace process by brokering the 1998 Good Friday Agreement while US President, but Mrs Clinton's appearance was the headline-grabber.

Architectural Digest Features the Clinton's DC Home




“It was an emotional reaction,” says Hillary Clinton of her first visit to what is now her Beltway home, dubbed “Whitehaven” because it’s nestled on Whitehaven Street in the tony Massachusetts Avenue neighborhood of Washington, D.C. “When I was elected to the Senate in 2000, I knew that I needed a place to live while we were in session during the year. So I began looking. And, I had an experience in this house, which was just emotional. I had gone up to the third floor and looked out over the trees—to the back of the British embassy—and I just felt like I was in old-time London or New York. The gardens were just the most amazing that I had seen anywhere in my real-estate tour,” she says.

Hillary Clinton Unredacted

cover art for The One, The Only... Hillary Clinton!
UNREDACTED spent an afternoon with Philippe’s former boss, Hillary Clinton. More precisely, Emily & Molly interviewed Hillary in her Washington, D.C. home for over an hour while Philippe made himself comfortable in her house and backyard. (When you listen you’ll hear why he excused himself; and at the end you’ll also hear us at his house telling him what he missed.) Hillary discusses events of the day, events of yesterday, events of tomorrow — everything we threw at her while sitting around her dining room table — including the Republican assault on Roe v. Wade, the differences between Richard Nixon and donald trump, trump’s “pathetic” cabinet, Rudy Giuliani’s two-decade long fixation on her, and her one-on-one meetings with more than half of the 20+ Democrats running for President. The interview was so long and so good we didn’t want to cut anything to make it fit into one episode. So we split it down the middle with the second half coming.

Hillary Clinton at Dartmouth


Posted: Wed 6:41 PM, May 08, 2019  | 
Updated: Wed 6:56 PM, May 08, 2019
Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spoke at Dartmouth College Wednesday.
Clinton is no stranger to Dartmouth. She made several stops at the Hanover school during both the 2008 and 2016 presidential primaries. But Wednesday's visit was not a campaign event. Instead, it was a discussion about the world we live in.
Clinton touched on a wide range of topics during the hour-plus question-and-answer lecture. Topics included the Iran nuclear deal, Watergate and the Russia relationship.
Clinton, of course, brings a wealth of knowledge from her time as U.S. secretary of state. She also addressed the Mueller report.

Hillary Clinton: How our partners are taking on gerrymandering

... and how you can join in, too.

After the 2020 census, state legislatures will redraw district lines across all fifty states. We only have to look at the way those lines have shifted over the last few decades to infer that Republicans will feel comfortable using the redistricting progress to disenfranchise voters and ensure GOP majorities for the next decade.
Gerrymandering is a critical issue, and one that should define the 2020 election. I wasn’t at all surprised to learn that three of our Onward Together partner organizations have put their heads together and come up with a plan to ensure that Democrats win key elections next fall.
This week, our partners at Swing Left, Run for Something, and Arena launched the Grassroots Redistricting Project. They’re targeting legislative chambers in nine states to ensure that Democrats have a fair say in the redistricting process, but they’ll need the power of this team to make it happen.
Today, sign up to learn more about how you can get involved in the Grassroots Redistricting Project:

I’m so proud of everyone taking part in this fight.
Onward!
