This action alert comes from People’s Action: Drumpf’s immigration order targeting seven Muslim-majority countries — Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen — is creating chaos and misery around the world.

Nearly 300 people from across the Metro area were on hand at the United Auto Workers Hall to meet with Bernie 2016 staffers and to launch a mission to recruit 5,000 Tennessee volunteers to spread […]
