The Grand Canyon: it is one of America’s greatest treasures. Countless families make the trek every year to marvel at the beauty of nature, its power, and its magnitude. Now, big businesses and anti-environmentalists are looking to intrude upon and pollute the Grand Canyon all in the name of profit.
The debate? Whether or not uranium mines—known to emit toxic chemicals in the air and threaten local water supplies—should be allowed in this national jewel...More
Women are the backbone of our families, our communities, and our economy – and the truth is Ohio’s working families won’t be able to get ahead until Ohio’s women have a fair chance to achieve their full potential.
That’s why Ted Strickland’s Ohio Families First Plan includes support for issues like equal pay, paid family leave, affordable childcare, and accessible women’s health care.
Ted Strickland has a proven...More
Support Pro-Choice Democratic Women
43 years after Roe v. Wade secured the right to a safe, legal abortion, access to women’s health care is under extreme threat.
Now more than ever, voters need to elect pro-choice Democratic women who will fight for the reproductive rights of women across the country.
Since 2011, 320 state laws have been enacted restricting a woman’s ability to get an abortion, including 30 laws passed just this year...More
For the first time in American history, we have a national plan to limit the dangerous climate pollution spewing from our fossil fuel-fired power plants – the single largest source of carbon pollution in our nation and one of the largest in the world. We can’t let that slip away.
But dirty energy forces are fighting climate progress through a relentless series of legal attacks. We’re fighting hard to stop this latest senseless effort attacking EPA’s vital limits on climate pollution—...More
Ted Strickland is proud to support the Department of Labor’s new rule expanding overtime pay for the middle class. He knows that middle class Americans work hard for their pay, and it’s only fair that their paycheck should reflect this hard work.
The rule would extend overtime pay protections to 4.2 million workers and raise Americans’ wages by $1.2 billion a year. The rule goes a long way towards fairly compensating millions of Americans.
And no one would benefit more from...More
Donald Trump, presumptive Republican nominee serial bankruptcy filer, has gone on the attack again, this time launching a series of rancid tweets at Senator Elizabeth Warren.
Looks like he picked a fight with the wrong person:
Elizabeth Warren delivered an extensive, blistering speech last night about Trump that will serve as a template for how Democrats will attack him...The line that is driving all the attention this morning is Warren’s...More
For Americans who are living paycheck-to-paycheck, working a job that doesn’t pay a fair wage, or facing crippling student debt, saving for retirement can seem like a fantasy — and that’s one of the reasons why our middle class is feeling squeezed.
It’s even worse when these same Americans are represented by D.C. insiders like Senator Rob Portman who want to raise the retirement age and slash earned benefits.
When you’re still working as a concrete finisher into your 60s,...More
Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner for President, stated in an interview that he would support “some form of punishment” for women who have an abortion, were it outlawed.
This is not a statement to dismiss lightly, like most Donald Trump positions tend to be. This is a direct assault on women’s healthcare rights.
Stand with Senate Democrats in defending a woman’s right to make their own choices when it comes to their healthcare.
This fight for...More
It’s 2016 and America still has a gender pay gap that isn’t shrinking fast enough. For full-time work, the average woman makes only 79 cents for every dollar a man makes.
It’s time to end this gender discrimination.
Now more than ever, we need to elect women to Congress who will fight for equal pay to support women and families across the country.
Over and over, we’ve seen Republicans vote against key legislation to make progress on...More
Due to outdated rules, the oil & gas industry is allowed to vent and flare dangerous methane emissions on protected public lands. The pollution hangs in the air, obscuring our views of these natural landscapes—and putting our health at risk as we enjoy them.
The Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) has proposed a rule to protect America’s most beautiful vistas from oil & gas pollution—but we’re running out of time to ensure these regulations are strengthened and finalized....More
