The dramatic images of the massive protests in Hong Kong are a reminder that people yearn for freedom and democracy around the world. The United States should stand with them.

News that the Trump Administration will weaken the Endangered Species Act. Our planet and its natural balance takes another hit. Stewardship of the environment will also be on the ballot in 2020.
