  1. Background North Korea: Diplomatic Openings and Giving Credit to Donald Trump 

    With North Korea’s nuclear program, there is no standing still: either things are getting better, or they will get worse. At a time when South Korean President Moon Jae-in has carved out new openings for diplomacy on the Korean Peninsula, President Trump deserves credit for taking a risk for peace by agreeing to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Now, Congress needs to get off the sidelines and engage.

  2. Action Alert The House Farm Bill Could Leave Millions Hungry 

    The farm bill passed by the House Agriculture Committee could force a million people off the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly food stamps). SNAP helps more than 40 million people put food on the table and prevent hunger.

    Monday, April 30 at 8pm

    It’s been another overwhelming week of news. President Trump launched an unauthorized attack on Syria without congressional consent. Senators from both parties introduced a war authorization bill that would expand the president’s war powers further than ever.
