Hulett submitted by Muslim Advocates,  asking the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit to re-hear and reverse a ruling that found that staff at an Illinois prison did not violate the Constitution when they forced female inmates to engage in a deeply humiliating and dehumanizing strip search as part of a training exercise.

    Reconstructing Judaism endorses the Health Equity and Access under the Law (HEAL) for Immigrant Women and Families Act of 2019. Under the act, immigrants in the United States can participate in the health care programs their billions of tax dollars support. By ensuring that all immigrants can access affordable coverage for which they are otherwise eligible, this bill will allow immigrant women and their families to receive the health care they need, and create healthier communities and a stronger economy.
