The White House to host the United We Stand Summit in September
On September 15th, the White House will be hosting the United We Stand Summit which will highlight the “corrosive effects” of violence on public safety and democracy, according to a White House announcement earlier this morning. The summit has been something advocated for some time now ever since the Buffalo supermarket shooting that sparked a chain of violence throughout the United States.
At the summit, President Biden will deliver a keynote speech after other speeches from civil rights groups, faith leaders, business executives, law enforcement officials, gun violence prevention advocates, former members of hate groups, the victims of violence, and cultural figures. One focal point of the announcement is the wish to bring Democrats and Republicans together to unite against violence.
“As President Biden said in Buffalo after the horrific mass shooting earlier this year, in the battle for the soul of our nation 'we must all enlist in this great cause of America. The United We Stand Summit will present an important opportunity for Americans of all races, religions, regions, political affiliations, and walks of life to take up that cause together,” Karine Jean-Pierre, the Biden press secretary, said.
Arizona might Lift an Injunction that Currently Blocks an Old Abortion Ban
Mark Brnovich, the Arizona Attorney General, may have gotten his way as pro-abortion advocates who have been fighting for him to not move forward in lifting an injunction blocking the enforcement of the ban on abortions. The law would ban abortions completely unless the mother’s life is in danger. Abortions have stopped in Arizona after the overturning of Roe v. Wade with multiple providers saying it was “too risky to move ahead with the old ban still on the books” and with a 2021 law granting all rights to pre-born children.
After the “personhood law” was blocked, Mark Brnovich stated that he would seek to have the 1973 injunction blocking the old abortion ban lifted as well.

She said, "It is being shown that our clear and unwavering stance since the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine is paying off.

Democrats making it a Goal to help Voters Understand the Inflation Reduction Act
Lawmakers throughout the Democratic party have started a small-scale campaign (a more so public relations push) to make voters comfortable with their understanding of the $700 Billion Inflation Reduction Act. Multiple Democratic officials have voiced their opinion that the bill will aid in retaining some of their seats on both sides of the Congressional Chamber come November.
Katie Porter spoke her piece at the Irvine Ranch Water District in Irvine, California after the district will be expanding a reservoir using funds from an infrastructure overhaul. Deb Haaland joined Porter as they each explained the bill. Katie Porter told voters, “This new law invests $4 billion in water conservation, efficiency, and restoration, and that supplements the more than $50 billion already allocated in the bipartisan infrastructure law to help us modernize our water infrastructure and improve our drinking water supply.”
