Support Team USA and America’s Athletes!

Over the past several decades, the Olympic movement has strayed from its roots. The time is now to take a serious look at the USOPC and if it is fulfilling its mission as outlined by the Ted Stevens Amateur Sports Act. As several Congressional and private
investigations revealed, United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee officials were more concerned with protecting the Olympics brand and producing medals than athlete’s health and wellbeing. The time is right to take an Olympics wide accounting of the
underlying culture that lead to the multiple sexual abuse scandals plaguing the Olympics community.
A Congressionally mandated Commission will allow experts in sports governance, coaching, child welfare and abuse to address these issues in a timely manner, free from politics.

Bring American Latino History and Contributions to the Smithsonian!

We invite you to co-sponsor H.R. 2420, the National Museum of the American Latino Act. Nearly 58 million Latinos, or 18.1 percent of the population, currently reside in the United States. By 2060, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates this population will

Give Students the Opportunity to Graduate College with Less Debt Cosponsor The Student Loan Disclosure Transparency Act

The burden of student loans has unquestionably taken a toll on millions of American families.
