I hope you’re staying cool this very warm summer.

Bill and I were thrilled to cheer on the US Women’s National Team at the World Cup last month, and even more thrilled just a few weeks later to welcome our third grandchild into a world in which women rule — at least on the field. Chelsea and I have also been hard at work on a new book that celebrates some of our favorite “gutsy” women; you’ll be able to read it this fall.
Meanwhile, summer can be a difficult time for groups like our Onward Together partners to raise money. People go on vacation, the weather is hot, and attentions drift. But I know that this team has the power to stay focused on what matters.
Today, make a donation to Onward Together so that we can ensure that these groups and more get the attention they need this summer and beyond.

Cat herder.

Betsy Ebeling, 73, who was known as Hillary Rodham Clinton’s best friend and first childhood school chum, died Sunday in Arlington Heights after a long battle with breast cancer.

Ebeling and Clinton had a long history together dating back to when they were sixth-graders at Eugene Field School in Park Ridge.

“It’s so sudden because Betsy was always busy gathering Hillary and all of us who had been close — especially her Park Ridge school buddies, which she jokingly likened to herding cats,” said Kathy Burgess, a close friend.

Ebeling was working on getting everyone together for a “slumber party” in Indiana Aug. 9- 11, Burgess said.

Hillary Clinton visited her daughter Chelsea and her newborn grandson Jasper in the hospital on Tuesday.

The former Secretary of State, 71, was photographed walking into Lenox Hill Hospital on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, where her daughter Chelsea, 39, gave birth on Monday morning.

Hillary beamed as she was seen exiting an SUV shortly after lunchtime and walking into the medical facility to make her second visit to her daughter and grandson in as many days, having only left the hospital late on Monday evening.

This is about the fabric of who we are. If we do not stop this criminal practice, everything else, education, healthcare, the economy, taxes, none of it has any significance. A lawless, criminal state is allowing human rights abuses. This must stop.

Join an emergency mobilization at a local event near you this Tuesday, July 2nd to demand Congress close the camps.

NEW revelations of ABHORRENT and willfully neglectful treatment of infants and children have just been revealed in a court filing.

Sick babies are languishing untreated for days in extreme cold temperatures, with guards refusing parents’ requests to see a doctor and told to “just deal with it.”1

Toddlers are wearing soiled clothes or stripping down because all their clothes, diapers, and baby formula are taken when parents arrive — and no new clothes are provided.2

MoveOn, United We Dream, and the American Friends Service Committee have joined us to organize dozens of groups for an emergency mobilization at noon this Tuesday, July 2nd outside local Congressional offices to demand Congress CLOSE THE CAMPS.


The revelations in the court filing come from interviews conducted by attorneys who accessed the camps.

These are the children’s own words:

  • ‘The day after we arrived here, my baby began vomiting and having diarrhea. I asked to see a doctor and they did not take us. I asked again the next day and the guard said “She doesn’t have the face of a sick baby. She doesn’t need to see a doctor.” My baby daughter has not had medicine since we first arrived. She has a very bad cough, fever and continues to vomit and have diarrhea.’ (Age 16, female).2
  • ‘I started taking care of [Name Redacted] (age 5) in the Ice Box after they separated her from her father. I did not know either of them before that. She was very upset. The workers did nothing to try to comfort her. I tried to comfort her and she has been with me ever since.’ (Age 15, female).2
  • ‘Three days ago my baby soiled his clothes. I had no place to wash the clothes so I could not put them back on my baby because when he went to the bathroom his poop came out of his diaper and all over his clothing. Since then, my baby of only three months has only been wearing a small little jacket made of t-shirt material. I have nothing else for my son to wear’ (Age 17, female).2

We must do EVERYTHING WE CAN TO END THIS ABUSE. Please — join us this Tuesday and let’s close the camps:


See you there,

Wednesday marked one year since the United States District Court in the Southern District of California ordered ICE and the U.S. government to reunite an asylum-seeking mother and her seven-year-old daughter — which they did, after months of waiting.

Meanwhile, hundreds of families are still waiting to be reunited, and more are being separated and sent to isolated detention centers. In the past few weeks, we’ve seen reports about CBP forcing children to take care of toddlers in holding cells, and DOJ lawyers actually trying to argue that the Trump administration doesn’t have an obligation to provide detained children with items as basic as blankets, toothbrushes, or soap.

Please make a donation to support the organizations working to protect children and families at the border.

Together, we’ve raised more than $700,000 this week that will help get basic resources, legal aid, and advocates to children at the border, among other things — with our help, Families Belong Together has been able to cover the costs of flights for families finally being reunited and secure safe housing for vulnerable immigrants. Thank you for making that possible. It’s critical that we provide a counter-point to the unconscionable things being done to refugee and immigrant families in our names.


Thank you,
