The Obstructionists
The Obstructionists

‘The Obstructionists’ is about how the GOP has become the ‘Party of No.’ The Republicans have obstructed and continue to obstruct our rights to universal health care, covid relief, reproductive rights, voting rights, immigration reform, police reform, social security, school lunches, medicare, medicaid, a wealth tax, gun control legislation, LGTBQ rights, and the 2020 election.

Separate the Church and State
Separate the Church and State

‘Separate the Church and State’ is about how religion has no place in government. I compare the extremist religious members of the Supreme Court to the Taliban because they are just as oppressive and just as dangerous to women. The First Amendment bars the government from creating an established church or showing preference to a certain religion. Separation of Church and State is a founding principle of our democracy and “deeply rooted in National Tradition.” We must keep it that way. Vote.

VOTE!
VOTE!

The VOTE! billboard was designed to remind people that this election is not about party politics or one candidate; it is about voting for the values in which we believe. Whether it is the President of the United States or a local judge, every vote matters.
