  • Reject Leasing Serenity Ridge Common Areas
    Why is this important? It seems that communities are being led to believe that fracking will be a golden goose while the real economic, human, and environmental impacts are being downplayed using tactics similar to the tobacco industry. Consider who would be impacted by the immediate and long-term adverse effects. We are concerned for our health, our reservoir, and our community and refuse to be the next Hinkley, Dimock, or Flint. We want clean water. We want clean air.

  • Justice for Shanquella Robinson
    The heartless taking of life cannot go unpunished regardless of where it happens and regardless of who it happens to. Shanquella Robinson did not deserve this from those she trusted. Justice must be served.

  • Save student loan debt cancellation and extend the payment pause!
    In August, the Biden administration announced an historic student debt cancellation policy, which would transform the lives of tens of millions of borrowers across the country. Despite President Biden possessing the authority to cancel student debt as per the HEROES Act, passed by Congress in 2003, right-wing MAGA Republicans have filed numerous lawsuits challenging the legality of student debt cancellation. Now, a Trump-appointed federal judge has officially blocked the cancellation program, and the Biden administration has been forced to stop accepting cancellation applications. While the case is currently being appealed to a higher court, student loan debt cancellation appears to be in jeopardy. In trying to kill this program, Republicans and their right-wing minions are trying to deny critical relief for tens of millions of families that have suffered under the crushing weight of student loan debt. This is absolutely unfathomable, and that’s why we’re demanding that they drop all litigation regarding student debt cancellation. Loan payments are set to resume in January 2023, but it's critical that loan payments remain suspended, especially as the cancellation program remains in flux—that's why we’re also calling on the Biden administration to extend the student loan payment pause indefinitely.

  • Tell the DOJ & the FTC: Break up Ticketmaster!
    In 2010, Ticketmaster and Live Nation merged (which should’ve never been allowed) and now we’re all suffering: from consumer to artists to venue themselves. The only winners here are Ticketmaster and corporate influence. Ever since, tickets have been steadily raising in cost, coupled with exorbitant fees and a flawed user experience that leaves working people less likely to want to partake in the experience again. We’ve seen this so clearly with Taylor Swift tickets recently, because of the dynamic ticket system Ticketmaster has in place, the more desire there is for tickets the higher the price goes. When Taylor first announced the tour, the prices were to be capped around $499. But after the “troubles” with the queue (that Ticketmaster sent out codes for in ADVANCE), ticket prices were going up and changing as people were checking out. Third party corporations make an entire industry of scalping these tickets and buying them in waves that forces people to pay thousands of dollars to see their favorite artist. It doesn’t have to be this way. Whether you’re a swiftie or not, you know this is wrong and disappointing for people everywhere who just want to see their favorite artist. (Considering we’re also on the premise of a huge Beyoncé tour announcement, the Beyhive will suffer next unless we stop this!)

  • CNN: Stop Giving Trump Free Airtime!
    As Donald Trump announced he was running for president again. we saw that the news media learned nothing from the last go-round about how to avoid his toxic manipulations. CNN covered his speech live—essentially giving him free rein to dominate airwaves and reach viewers with his narcissistic brand of conspiracy theories and abuse. And he doesn't have to pay a dime for all this free advertising. In 2016, it was estimated that the major news networks gave Trump $2 billion in free airtime. [https://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/16/upshot/measuring-donald-trumps-mammoth-advantage-in-free-media.html] We can't make that mistake again. News networks don't need to show his speeches live. They can cover them as news—wait until he's done, show clips within context, offer fact-checking, and stop amplifying his abusive attacks, bigoted insults, QAnon-level conspiracies, and dangerous deceptions. Trump sought to overturn and election and helped incite a deadly insurrection. We know his words carry weight. You can cover him as news—but don't serve as his personal broadcasting network. Stop covering him live. Fact-check his statements. And don't fall into the trap of giving him free airtime.

  • Trump must testify and fully comply with the Jan 6 Committee's subpoena
    Donald Trump just SUED the January 6th House Committee, his latest attempt to dodge testimony and hide the truth about his role in the deadly attack on our Capitol. Since the onset of this crucial investigation, Trump has done nothing but try to obstruct and discredit the Committee. He has clearly put himself high above the law – and thinks he shouldn’t be held accountable for his criminal efforts to overturn the 2020 election. If he is as innocent as he says he is, testifying shouldn’t pose any problem – Trump should welcome the opportunity to exonerate himself. But all he’s done since being subpoenaed is double down on his 2020 election lies and conspiracies – and his refusal to face the Committee speaks volumes. Seven former Presidents have testified before Congress, so there is clear precedent for Trump to testify. Congress must show Trump once and for all that ignoring this subpoena is not an option. We the People deserve nothing less. Add your name if you agree: Donald Trump is not above the law – and the House must vote to hold him accountable if he doesn’t fully comply.

  • Keep Donald Trump off Twitter and Facebook
    Facebook and Twitter both made the decision to remove Donald Trump after the deadly January 6 insurrection. He had propagated lies about the election results, sought to overturn the outcome and seize power, and stirred up the violent attack on the Capitol—which he then defended. This followed years of him spreading vile, bigoted hate speech and dangerous disinformation. His years of harm were given wide latitude by the social media platforms as an elected official. But after January 6, they said enough was enough. In the intervening years, Trump has continued to lie about the election results, share propaganda from white supremacists, and pedal QAnon conspiracy theories. And as the January 6 committee has made clear, his actions were part of an intentional, willful effort to hold power and overturn the rightful election of President Biden. Now, Trump is in the news again, preparing for another presidential run. Facebook will face pressure to reinstate him as a public figure. And Twitter—under the ownership of the narcissist Elon Musk who has used the platform to attack Democrats and spread conspiracies himself—could give Trump back his megaphone any day. It's imperative there are consequences for illegal and violence-inciting behavior, and for public figures to be held accountable for spreading conspiracy theories and disinformation online. Facebook and Twitter owe it to their own uses, their advertisers, and the public to keep Donald Trump off their platforms.

  • Support Mental Health Services in Texas Schools
    On any given day a school social worker can help a child who is engaged in NSSI (non-suicidal self-injury) receive wrap around services, assist a child experiencing homelessness with transportation to school, clothes and free meals, give a child with anxiety tools for managing a panic attack, and help a child find their voice to combat bullying. In one school week, and even in one day, all of these situations can arise, alongside countless other complicated situations that need immediate attention. Unfortunately many school districts don't provide schools with a social worker, or they may require a social worker to work at multiple schools. Understaffing means social workers have extremely high case loads and are not able to effectively support student's needs. The TEA reported there were approximately 5,308 Texas students for every one school social worker employed in our state during the 2019-2020 school year. We need a social worker at every school and funds specifically allocated to school districts to provide mental health services. Therefore, we need an amendment to the Texas Education Code to include social work services and the Texas Education Commission to directly distribute funds to school districts for mental health services.
