Kindness Resolution

Many of our local communities are in need of fostering a safe space and practicing good. We live in a political climate where many people are too afraid to trust one another. We live in a day and age where we have forgotten that when people unite, we can

Cosponsor H.R. 3068 – The Offshore Wind Jobs and Oportunity Act

Our nation is in the midst of a clean energy revolution. More and more of our electricity is being generated by renewable energy and we are only beginning to utilize one of our great untapped renewable resources: offshore wind. Our nation’s very first offshore
wind farm came online in 2016 off the coast of New England and others are in development thanks to state and federal partnerships. In order to take full advantage of this burgeoning field, we need to make sure American workers are fully trained and
ready to pave the way for growth and innovation in this new American energy industry.

Bring the History and Culture of American Latinos to the Smithsonian!

We invite you to cosponsor H.R. 2420, the National Museum of the American Latino Act. Nearly 60 million Latinos, or 18.3 percent of the population, currently reside in the United States. By 2060, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates this population will

also the largest ethnic group in our country. Yet, Latinos continue facing systemic under-representation in nearly every facet of American life.

Marijuana Data Collection Act

Several studies by prominent healthcare associations and scientific publications have produced data that analyzes states that have legalized marijuana and the benefits legalization has produced for the state from an economic, criminal justice, and healthcare
perspective, among others. Despite these reports, marijuana remains a controversial topic, fueled by its misplaced stigma, and the “war on drugs” rhetoric from various prominent law enforcement officials. While President Trump stood by his original position
to allow states to continue their programs without federal interference, authorizing legislation to deschedule, or allow research for medical and/or non-medicinal marijuana, has yet to advance in Congress.

Support Bipartisan Marijuana Descheduling Legislation

Even though 33 states and D.C. have legalized medical marijuana, 11 states and D.C. have legalized adult-use marijuana, and 68 percent of Americans support legalization, marijuana is still listed under Schedule 1 of the Controlled Substances Act. Enforcing
