Like you, I am already counting down the days until President Trump’s time in the White House comes to an end. 1,460 days is a very long time. In order to hold the President accountable, we will need to find a way to stay engaged and ensure our voices are heard.

The first 100 days of every presidency sets the pace. It’s a time when public support is (usually) strong, and citizens give their new president the benefit of the doubt. 

With President Trump, the first 100 days is the time when the most damage can happen.

While you slept last night, Senate Republicans took the first major vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act. 

The Republican-led Senate started paving the way to repeal ACA by employing procedural tactics. Key components of ACA are under attack with this repeal tactic including Medicaid expansion, subsidies for premiums, and contraception coverage.

In cities across the country, people have just concluded celebrating Pride Month for the LGBTQ community. Members and allies alike have taken to the streets for parades and parties-- laughing, loving, and this year, mourning. 

But we know it's not enough to just celebrate. We need to act. 

We need to ensure safe spaces exist for LGBTQ Americans, by strengthening non-discrimination laws in the workplace. 

We need to get rid of the unscientific ban on sexually active gay men donating blood so they can help others during tragedy.
