President Biden announcing new actions to curb the gun violence epidemic

Hey Team,

Here’s some good news heading into the weekend: As of Thursday, nearly 126 million people in the U.S. had received at least one dose of the vaccine, including more than 78 million people who’ve been fully vaccinated. This is tremendous progress, Steven, getting the nation closer and closer to beating this pandemic.

But there is still plenty of work to be done to get the country back on track. Right now, one in every five miles — or 173,000 total miles — of our highways and major roads are in poor condition, as well as over 45,000 bridges.

Investing in our nation’s infrastructure will be a critical step in rebuilding our nation’s economy moving forward — which is why we must throw our support behind President Biden’s American Jobs Plan.

Rebuilding our economy: The American Jobs Plan

The American Jobs Plan is a once-in-a-generation investment that will create millions of quality jobs, rebuild our country’s infrastructure, and help the U.S. compete at a global level.

Take a look at the plan’s key provisions:

As we emerge from the pandemic, the American Jobs Plan will be essential in strengthening our economic foundation and turning relief into recovery. Meet President Biden’s Jobs Cabinet and learn more about the American Jobs Plan:

Fighting gun violence

Gun violence is a public health epidemic — and recent mass shootings in Atlanta and Boulder highlighted the need for urgent, meaningful action. 

That’s why the Biden-Harris administration announced six initial actions to address gun violence in all forms. This includes publishing model “red flag” legislation, investing in evidence-based community violence interventions, and other common-sense reforms.

Watch and share President Biden’s words on gun violence.

Take action: Pass the For the People Act

This year alone, over 360 pieces of legislation have been introduced in state legislatures aimed at restricting access to the ballot nationwide. Our best shot at fighting back is to make sure S. 1 — the For the People Act — passes in the U.S. Senate.

The bill aims to fight big money in politics, expand voting rights, end extreme partisan gerrymandering, and hold our elected officials accountable — but it’s going to take all of us speaking out and showing our support to make it happen. Add your name to show your support for S. 1, the For the People Act:

We need you, Steven

You have a lot to be proud of — from winning back the White House, to flipping the Senate, to passing the American Rescue Plan. But to build upon the progress we’ve made this year, we’ll need to continue fending off Republican attacks and electing Democrats at every level of government.
