Action Alerts

Take action to ban offshore drilling/seismic testing off South Carolina's coast. Support Beaufort County's Rural and Critical Lands Program. The "For the People Act" that passed the House of Representatives needs a Senate hearing. There are many areas of bipartisan agreement.

Multiple constituent contacts make a difference to Legislators. Contact your representative today in support of these time-sensitive issues.

Press Mention

Many readers may not be aware that there is a revived movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). Passage of H.3391 would make South Carolina the required 38th state to ratify the ERA and make it the law of the land. Now is the time to urge your state representative to join Weston Newton and support this bill in 2020.
