CLOSING NOW – ROUND 2: Support A Fair Process For Colleges in Puerto Rico

Betsy DeVos has struck Puerto Rico again. Despite
massive public outcry in opposition, the Department of Education is ignoring Congressional and stakeholder input, and is moving forward with an incredibly unfair process for colleges and universities to apply for and access disaster aid funding. On April

Prevent F-35 Sales to Turkey

Last year, when Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s security forces assaulted peaceful protestors here in Washington, the House of Representatives formally condemned the attack and prevented the sale of handguns to Erdogan’s bodyguards. This year, Turkey
