It's #WhaleWednesday! Let's take a look at the beluga whale, a small toothed whale that is restricted to the Arctic Ocean and adjacent waters. The beluga is the only species of cetacean (whales & dolphins) that has a movable neck! They can move their heads up and down and from side to side.

I learned the importance of voting from my father. He had multiple sclerosis, and it was a struggle for him just to get out of bed and get dressed in the morning. But on election day, no matter how sick he felt or how much pain he was in, he got himself to a polling place and cast his vote.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For him, voting was a sacred responsibility because he knew it was the only way to make his voice heard and ensure his values were represented in the halls of power. And that is especially true today in this upcoming election -- and every election. So I hope you'll join me and the rest of the @WhenWeAllVote team during our Week of Action this September to get folks across this country fired up to vote this November.

John Feal (center) has been to 181 funerals since September 11, 2001, for first-responders who joined him at Ground Zero after the attacks on the World Trade Center. John has teamed up with comedian Jon Stewart to once again petition Congress to make sure 9/11 first responders continue to have access to the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund which is running out of funding and set to expire by 2020.

Nearly 4,000 of California’s firefighters are prisoners. Despite fighting the state’s largest fires, these men and women are denied the licenses they need to become professional firefighters after leaving prison because of their criminal records. The Institute for Justice is calling on California lawmakers to remove this barrier for former prisoners who want to become firefighters and EMTs.

Theresa delivered 375,000+ signatures to the @ups headquarters in Atlanta asking the company to provide air conditioning in their delivery trucks for drivers like her husband.
Happy birthday to Matthew Charles, who is celebrating behind bars after being forced to return to prison after serving over 20 years — as prosecutors say he was released by error.
He will have to serve the remainder of his 35 year sentence for a nonviolent drug offense unless President Trump grants him clemency.
Wanna get him a #HBD gift? Sign the petition in bio to support his clemency!
