Opinion | The Looming Uncertainty for Dreamers Like Me

DACA-recipient Ricardo Aca – who we profiled two years ago while he was working in a Trump hotel – has published an OpEd in the New York Times about a potential DACA repeal.

"I personally couldn’t go back into the shadows even if I tried. The future I have worked so hard for could be ripped away if DACA is repealed. What’s worse, I will probably find out about my future from a tweet."

It’s hard to overstate how much DACA changed everyday life for almost 800,000 people.

The War on Women's Health is Real

We made this video three years ago and I very much look forward to the day that it is no longer relevant. That is sadly not today.

Watch to find out why Planned Parenthood is so important to so many, and why the arguments to defund it don't make sense.

Religious conservatives continue to push harsh laws restricting access to women's healthcare across the country. This short documentary brings attention to t...

The War on Women's Health is Real

Reproductive health is a fundamental part of women's general health and its inclusion in employer-sponsored insurance plans shouldn't be subject to restriction more than any other legal medical procedures. It's telling that all three women on the Supreme Court dissented from the entirely male (and entirely Catholic) majority in today's decision.

Two years ago, we produced this short documentary that outlines the importance of broad access to contraceptive options. Featured interviews include Lois Capps; Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY's List; and Dr. Kimberly Shepherd, an OB/GYN.

The Republican Party continues to pass harsh laws restricting access to women's healthcare across the country, but the mainstream press has stopped paying at...

Climate Change Study Finds U.S. Is Already Widely Affected

“Climate change, once considered an issue for a distant future, has moved firmly into the present,” the scientists declared in a major new report assessing the situation in the United States.

Declaring that the issue of human-induced climate change had “moved firmly into the present,” a major study found that water shortages, torrential rains, heat waves and wildfires were worsening.

Income Inequality Emerges As Key Topic To Avoid In 2014 Elections

“Come November, voters are going to have a lot of questions about economic disparity, taxes, CEO pay, and public welfare programs, which candidates are going to have to be prepared to address with noncommittal and completely insubstantial answers no more than one sentence long. It’s going to be a subject you’ll hear candidates divert from over and over again right up until Election Day.”

WASHINGTON—Citing the recent failure to increase the federal minimum wage and the continuing struggles of the country’s shrinking middle class, political strategists reported Monday that income inequality has emerged as the most important topi...

The end of abortion access in the South?

The Mississippi law in question sounds innocuous. It requires that abortions be provided by doctors who are board-certified obstetrician-gynecologists, and that they have admitting privileges at local hospitals. But in Mississippi and elsewhere, local hospitals have refused to provide those privileges, which the medical establishment say aren’t medically necessary. Indeed, the American Medical Association and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists have said such laws are worse than unnecessary: They “impose[s] government regulation on abortion care that jeopardizes the health of women.”

As the law that would close the last abortion clinic in Mississippi is argued in court, reproductive rights for millions of American women hang in the balance.

Southerners in Poll Oppose Health Law, and Its Repeal

The findings in the four [Southern] states — all with political races that could tip the balance of power in the Senate — underscore the complex and often contradictory views of Mr. Obama’s principal domestic legislation four years after it became law.

Most people still loathe the law. Questions about it may evoke associations with an unpopular president, the remoteness of Washington from ordinary Americans and extra costs in family budgets. But majorities say they do not want it taken away, even in states that lean Republican in presidential elections.

A poll in four states — all with political races that could tip the balance of power in the Senate — showed broad distaste for the law, but found that people would rather have it improved than repealed.
