Our resistance vs. Trump (we won another round!)

Here’s the latest: Democrats and Republicans in Congress have agreed to a spending bill that will keep the government open through the end of September and protect nearly all of our progressive priorities.

We saved the Environmental Protection Agency and Planned Parenthood from budget cuts, stopped additional funding for Trump’s border wall, expanded college financial aid, and boosted science funding.

In negotiating this deal with Republicans, Democrats in Congress held firm – empowered because millions of grassroots progressives like you are leading a fierce resistance to Trump’s agenda.

Our resistance is working, and it’s up to us to keep up the pressure!

Just check out a few of the headlines!

Onward!
