The FCC announced its plan to destroy #NetNeutrality today. Congress can still stop the FCC, but they’ll only act if there’s a massive public outcry. Today's #SignOfResistance by @ashlukadraws. Share it, and let your representatives know we won’t stand for the Trump administration’s attack on our internet freedom. Look out for a protest at a Verizon retail store near you on December 7th, exactly one week before the net neutrality vote. Together, let’s #SaveNetNeutrality! (Link in bio)

The Supreme Court will decide whether businesses that open their doors to the public have a constitutional right to discriminate. Once again, John Lewis is on the right side of history. #opentoall #discrimination #johnlewis #masterpiece #supremecourt #scotus #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtrights #civilrights #civilrightsmovement #civilrightsactivist

Our new poll shows consensus support for criminal justice reform across the ideological and political spectrum. The data is clear: President Trump and Jeff Sessions are out of touch with what voters want, even in their own party. It's past time to shift resources away from incarceration, towards rehabilitation, and to address racial bias at every step of the criminal justice system. Swipe to learn more.

WATCH: An LAPD officer accidentally filmed himself putting cocaine in a suspect's wallet. Planting evidence is not just a massive breach of community trust— it's a crime. When police break the law or shatter public trust, they must be held accountable. Reported by @cbsla, regrammed from @certitv. #lapd #cops #police #officer #accountability #blacklivesmatter #warondrugs #breaking #cbs

This is what progress looks like.

📸 + 🎨 via @ashlukadraws: "Yesterday’s victories have made me feel optimistic today. Voting works. We can see it in the choices made by communities across the US yesterday. Let’s keep fighting for voting rights and for representation in our government. I want to celebrate all of the progressive and ground-breaking candidates who won last night, especially #AndreaJenkins (Minneapolis City Council) and #DanicaRoem (Virginia House of Delegates)– two powerful transgender women who are paving the way for future leaders. It is important to note the bravery of #AtheaGarrison two decades ago, who was the first trans woman to be elected to state legislature." #progress #danicaroem #andreajenkins #lgbt #trans #transisbeautiful #pride

One year ago we made a promise to all of you: If the President tried to make his campaign promises a reality, we would see him in court.

We're renewing this promise today: We will fight for as long as it takes. Read more at aclu.org/promisekept
