In 2011 I was diagnosed with ALS, a disease that is almost always fatal. But now, a new drug is offering hope to thousands of ALS patients like me, and we need your help to get the FDA to grant its approval.

It’s a Historic Moment …


–Rashad, Arisha, Matt, Bhavik, and the ColorOfChange team

2014 has been transformative for the racial justice movement
Cease and Desist StampChip in to make 2015 even biggerContribute

 I was at the ColorOfChange annual staff retreat. On the first morning we held four and a half minutes of silence: one minute for every hour Michael Brown lay on the street after being killed by Officer Darren Wilson. It was a powerful reminder of why we fight, and also of the historic time we’re in.

There’s a sense of pain and anger, but also of possibility as Black folks and our allies have taken to the streets across the country asserting that “Black Lives Matters” and demanding an end to discriminatory, militarized policing.

The moment of silence was also a reminder of the important role that the ColorOfChange community plays in this movement for a just and inclusive America. At the staff retreat we took stock of our work over 2014, and while we’ve faced hardships, I was blown away by what we’ve accomplished together this year…

  1. We successfully pressured Saturday Night Live to hire not one, but three Black women. This included Sasheer Zamata, who became the first Black woman cast-member since 2007.
  2. We stopped the fight between DMX and George Zimmerman, who was continuing to victimize Trayvon Martin and capitalize on his death.
  3. We got racist Clippers-owner Donald Sterling kicked out of the NBA, forcing him to sell the team.
  4. We fought back against the telecom corporations attempting to buy the Internet and end Net Neutrality, which has been critical to our 21st-century fights for justice. We made sure our voices were heard in DC, and – in November – President Obama let us know he was listening.
  5. More than 1 million people saw our #IfTheySpeakForMe YouTube videos, encouraging folks to get out and vote during the 2014 mid-term elections.
  6. We divested nearly $60 million from the private prison industry, which is responsible for some of the most abusive and inhumane conditions in the country.
  7. We fought hard for important reforms to New York City’s Stop-and-Frisk program, including a city-wide ban on discriminatory policing and an independent monitor to oversee changes.
  8. We helped pass California’s Prop 47 ballot initiative, reclassifying nonserious, nonviolent crimes as misdemeanors instead of felonies, keeping countless Black folks out prison and giving many a chance to get out.
  9. And we brought the campaign for police accountability and systemic reforms to the White House, delivering nearly 1 million petition signatures. During this amplified moment we’re continuing to fight for justice for Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Ramarley Graham, John Crawford, and too many others.

Our work is far from done, which is why spent the second half of the retreat hatching plans for 2015. We discussed ways to improve our work so that we can more effectively win real-world change for Black folks. Ultimately, that’s what ColorOfChange is about.

But change takes a community. Our 2014 victories and achievements wouldn’t have happened without you signing petitions, advocating on social media, showing up on the streets, and chipping in your hard-earned money. And now we’re looking toward the year ahead.

Our ability to make ambitious plans for 2015 is constrained by what we’re able to fundraise this month. If we can raise $100,000 by December 31, we’ll have the resources we need to dream big this coming year. We’ve proven that we’re an effective force for change for Black folks and our allies. Click to contribute whatever you’re able to, today.

Thanks and peace,

Several amendments have been called up to S.1, a bill to approve the Keystone XL pipeline. There are now 13 first degree amendments and the Murkowski substitute amendment pending. Senator Sanders attempted to call up an additional amendment, but Senator Murkowski asked that he wait until the Republicans were ready with their next amendment so that we can continue to offer amendments in an alternating fashion. Both sides are looking at the amendments that have been offered and discussions will be had on a path forward. Another message will be sent when any vote are scheduled.

There is a chance that Senator McConnell, or his designee, moves to table one of the pending amendments this evening. This vote could come quickly. We could also have a live quorum.

 

  1. Murkowski amendment #2 (substitute)
  2. Vitter amendment #80, as modified (OCS)

  13. Daines amendment #132 (Sense of Congress national monuments)
  14. Markey amendment #25 (tar sands excise tax)

The Senate is in a live quorum call. If a quorum is not present, we expect Senator McConnell will make a motion to request the attendance of absent senators. That would be a roll call vote.

9:28p The Senate began a roll call vote on the McConnell motion to instruct the SAA to request the presence of absent senators;

Agreed To: 89-5

Senator McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Senate vote in relation to the following amendments.

  13. Daines amendment #132 (Sense of Congress national monuments)
  14. Markey amendment #25 (tar sands excise tax)

 

That the amendments be subject to 60-vote thresholds; that there be 2 minutes for debate equally divided, and all votes after the first be 10 minute votes.

 

Senator Durbin reserved his right to object, asked that we start working through these amendments in an orderly fashion tomorrow morning. Senator Durbin objected.

 

Senator McConnell then announced that he intends to start to table the pending Democratic amendments. He then moved to table Markey amendment #25 (tar sands excise tax). Senator Markey asked unanimous consent that he be permitted to speak for 1 minute on his amendment. Senator Cornyn objected. Senator Durbin suggested the absence of a quorum. A quorum was present. At 10:06pm, the Senate began a 15 minute roll call vote on the McConnell motion to table Markey amendment #25 (tar sands excise tax).

The Reed amendment was tabled 49-45. Senator McConnell then filed cloture on the Murkowski amendment #2 (substitute ) and the underlying bill, S.1, a bill to approve the Keystone XL pipeline. Senator McConnell then asked consent to vote on a series of Republican amendments and the Cardin amendment at 9:30am tomorrow, with no second degree amendments in order and that the amendments be subject to 60 vote thresholds for adoption. Senator Durbin objected. The unofficial transcript of the exchange can be found below. The next vote will be at 5:30pm on Monday, January 26.

THAT YOUR MEMBERS HAD OFFERED AND DIDN’T WANT TO AGREE TO — TO
