Take a tour of the Museum!

Next week we will be celebrating six months of the National Museum of African American History and Culture being open and over 1,000,000 visitors have already come through our doors! If you’ve already visited the Museum, then you understand the groundbreaking significance of this remarkable institution that you helped to build. If you have not had a chance to visit, join as a Charter Member now to receive a downloadable map of the Museum experience.

Each day, thousands of visitors embark on an exhilarating exploration of the rich and complex tapestry of the African American experience…

The journey through the Museum's 11 interactive galleries mirrors the upward progress of African Americans in our country
starting 70 feet below ground on the building's lower level exploring slavery and the Jim Crow era
moving upward to African Americans' historic achievements in science, music, sports, military service, and other fields ... and ascending to modern-day challenges and triumphs.
Join today!

In case you haven’t yet visited the Museum, there is a special map available if you join as a Charter Member today. It depicts visitors’ progression through Museum’s galleries and highlights some of thousands of objects featured in our exhibitions — from an old slave cabin and Harriett Tubman’s shawl, to Chuck Berry’s Cadillac and a robe worn by Muhammad Ali.

SaveAnimalsFacingExtinction.org – Than the Wildlife Park Rangers

Wildlife park rangers put their lives on the line every day to save the world’s most precious animals.

Sign on to thank them for protecting endangered species:

Bravery, sacrifice, and courage are the prerequisites for being a wildlife park ranger.

These incredible men and women are challenged each day with protecting some of the most endangered species in the world. And c, many of them go above and beyond the call of duty:

Two rangers at Fota Wildlife Park endanger themselves to rescue cheetah

Their heroism allowed the cheetah to run away uninjured. We’re so inspired by their dedication to saving beautiful and beloved animals!

Will you sign your name to thank wildlife park rangers for protecting endangered species?

Take the cheetah, for example:

Right now, cheetahs — the oldest existing species of cats on earth — are threatened with extinction. We cannot let these incredible creatures die out after roaming our planet for FOUR MILLION years.[1]

But with a 90% mortality rate of cheetah cubs in the wild, these cats are on a direct path toward extinction.

That’s why the bravery of park rangers is more important today than ever before.

Every time a ranger protects an endangered species like the cheetah, we move one step closer toward saving these creatures.

So , please sign your name to thank wildlife park rangers for protecting endangered species:

“American Health Care Act will lower premiums & improve access to quality, affordable care.” That was House Speaker Paul Ryan’s take on the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office’s official score of Trumpcare. Only it seems like he may have read a different report because the CBO report was bad for House Republicans. So bad, in fact, that Speaker Ryan was called out for his comments on Fox News. Here are a few key numbers from the report showing just how bad Trumpcare is:

  • 24 million people will lose coverage over 10 years.
  • 14 million people will lose coverage by 2018.
  • 7 million fewer people will have employer-sponsored coverage in 10 years.
  • 14 million fewer people will have Medicaid coverage in 10 years.
  • $880 billion will be cut from Medicaid over 10 years.
  • 15 to 20 percent premium INCREASE in the individual market in 2018 and 2019.
What’s puzzling, House Republican leaders seemed to be expecting the CBO report to be this bad. Even before the CBO actually released its score, they began trying to discredit the office. But their strategy is pretty transparent. Congressional Republicans loved the CBO until it didn’t work for them. HHS Secretary Tom Price himself personally signed off on the appointment of the current CBO Director, but yesterday Price joined his House peers in attacking the CBO. These attacks are no more than a distraction, the reality is Trumpcare would cover fewer people at a higher price and it’s not just the CBO that says so, all these reports agree.
