ARKANSAS GOVERNOR, ASA HUTCHINSON, STOP EXECUTIONS
The Governor of the State of Arkansas is planning to execute eight death row prisoners by the end of April. We simply can't let this happen and there is time to stop it. The executions would be done by lethal injection drugs. Arkansas' Department of Corrections uses a three injection drug protocol, with the first drug being midazolam, a sedative. Midazolam is central to botched executions across the nation.
The death warrants are signed and the executions are planned for the time period between April 17-27. Will you voice your concerns by contacting the Governor?
Several of the eight people scheduled to die are thought to be mentally ill, and questions have been raised as to their mental health when they committed their crimes. Also, Arkansas law requires at least six "respectable citizens" to witness each execution. Witnesses must be at least 21 years old and an Arkansas resident with no felony convictions. Victims' family members are not included in this count. There is evidence that the State is finding it difficult to get the number of required witnesses.

REJECT PRESIDENT TRUMP'S ANTI-MUSLIM POLICIES
We've all heard the news that President Trump has banned immigrants/refugees from seven countries to enter the United States. This is an un-American executive order making clear the President's racist, islamophobic, and xenophobic agenda. We must act!
Congress must reject Trump's anti-muslim policies. Banning some of the world's vulnerable people who seek to come to America for a better life is not what we stand for--never have; never will!
Many people believe that Trump's policy will not make America any safer. In fact, the opposite could be true. National security experts are warning that these policies will only provide recruiting material for America's enemies while creating fear and hysteria here at home. White supremacist groups must be celebrating!
Please contact your elected officials and urge them to reject Trump's anti-muslim agenda. Again, it's un-American!
Thanks for getting involved.
STAND WITH ELIZABETH WARREN AGAINST BIG DRUG COMPANIES
We are all probably aware of people who can't afford the perscriptions their doctors say they need. Many must make a choice as to eating, or feeding their families, and the drugs they take. Sen. Warren is trying to prevent this from getting worse. Here's how you can help!
Congress has been working on a pharma bill entitled the 21st Century Cures bill. Sen. Warren isn't happy with it, and SISTERS ONLINE tends to trust her instincts. She's asking us to contact our elected officials and urge them to vote against the bill based on the following things that could be better in it:
--the bill is full of industry giveaways and doesn't reduce crushing drug prices.
--it doesn't expand the invention of new cures.
--it doesn't increase access to lifesaving therapies.
--it makes it easier for drug companies to commit fraud and give out kickbacks.
--it includes a giveaway to the gun lobby and slashes money from Medicare and the Affordable Care Act.
Will you contact your elected officials and urge them to vote "NO" on the 21st Century Cures bill?
Thanks for taking action!
--The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) received $24.1 million in online donations, six times the amount it typically receives in the space of a year, over a single weekend after President Trump's Executive Order suspended refugee entries.
