  • Keep Fair Lawn Bakery Open
    This is a company very dear to my heart. My grandfather left Bulgaria to pursue a better life in America for our family and this was his first real job here. It changed everything for us! My mother is a long time employee in this location and has dedicated her life to this company. So many lives will be changed if this location closes. We are in the middle of a pandemic and many families are dependent on this income. Our economy will be affected, our local businesses. We need to rally together and make sure the jobs stay here!

  • INVESTIGATE: Trump fires election security director for contradicting him
    Despite Trump’s futile attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election, Christopher Krebs -- director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) -- remained committed to giving the American people the truth. He reassured voters that the 2020 election was “the most secure in American history” -- and that there isn’t a shred of evidence that voting systems were compromised. [1] Krebs didn’t do this as Republican or Democrat. He did it as a national security official -- and as someone who understands that our foreign adversaries’ primary goals are to sow chaos and chip away at faith in our institutions. Krebs was reaffirming the facts. But that didn’t fit with the ludicrous narrative that Trump is spinning -- so the president fired him. That’s outrageous. Krebs was simply doing his job -- defending the integrity of this free and fair election and maintaining voters’ faith in our democracy. Plus, Trump's selective firing of national security officials who contradict him puts all of us at risk. Especially because Krebs’ former agency also oversees critical infrastructure from other sectors, like nuclear power plants and chemical storage facilities. Congress must investigate this sudden and abhorrent decision -- which jeopardizes our national security and the integrity of our democracy. If you agree, add your name now. 1) https://www.npr.org/2020/11/17/936003057/cisa-director-chris-krebs-fired-after-trying-to-correct-voter-fraud-disinformati

  • Speeding Enforcement and Reduction on Sutter Ave. (Carmichael)
    A little over a year ago my mother’s cat Finn was hit by a car on Sutter Ave. trying to cross the street to come home. Yesterday morning her other cat Winston was also hit by a car. She had tried to keep him as an inside only cat, but he got out through the dog door. I was beyond heartbroken and devastated hearing the news from my neighbor and having to carry his lifeless body home. I am tired of people using Sutter Ave as an alternative to Fair Oaks driving 50-60 mph with no regard for anyone. There are children, elderly, cats, dogs, walking, playing, etc., as this is a neighborhood. I am beyond upset at how reckless people drive through this neighborhood. I do not want any other living being to be hurt or killed by the hand of a careless and selfish individual.

  • President-elect Biden: We're ready to fight for a bold agenda
    The people have spoken, and they voted for bold action. We elected Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in an overwhelming victory with the highest voter turnout in history. People-powered organizing over the past four years and in this election turned the tide against Republicans despite their efforts to suppress Americans’ voices everywhere from the courts to the census to the ballot box. Everyday people—from frontline workers to students getting creative on social media to parents juggling work from home with kids to mothers, fathers, and children demanding justice for Black lives—mobilized to protect each other and our democracy, and we're ready to continue the work to create an America that works for all of us. Only big ideas, like a new New Deal or an investment akin to Kennedy's moonshot, will be able to alleviate the multiple crises our country faces: record unemployment, severe weather with multiple once-in-a-lifetime storms, wildfires raging, unbridled police violence, massive wealth inequality, millions without health coverage in a pandemic, and so much more. Incremental shifts will not tackle the crises or provide the relief desperately needed. We must change the status quo, invest in people and our communities, and shift power away from the wealthy and corporations. Together, we can send a powerful message to the Biden/Harris transition team. MoveOn will deliver your signature and comments to ensure the new administration knows why we need transformative solutions and that we're ready to work to ensure they are enacted. After four years of pushing back against the worst of the Trump administration's policies, hundreds of thousands of MoveOn members worked tirelessly to ensure progressive voters were able to cast their ballots. We voted to make Washington work for the people again. We voted because we can't survive another four years of attacks, the pandemic, and the sinking economy. We voted because we believe that Biden/Harris will deliver for the people who delivered the election for them. Now, we're ready to support the Biden administration implement a bold new vision where everyone can thrive.

  • DONOVAN LAW: Save Our Children, Save Our Families- Change the System!!!
    Families have been destroyed by addiction. New Hampshire Laws needs to CHANGE! Too many lives have been lost because of the lengthy process it is to try and get our loved ones into a rehabilitation center when they are adult age. By the time the paperwork has been filed it is always too late. My Name is Meth I destroy homes, I tear families apart, take your children, and that's just the start. I'm more costly than diamonds, more precious than gold The sorrow I bring is a sight to behold. If you need me, rememeber I'm easily found, I live all around you - in schools and in town. I live with the rich, I live with the poor, I live down the street, and maybe next door. I'm made in a lab, but not like you think, I can be made under the kitchen sink. In your childs closet, and even in the woods, If this scares you to death, well it certainly should. I have many names, but there's one you know best, I'm sure you've heard of me, my name is crystal meth. My power is awesome, try me you'll see, But if you do, you may never break free. Just try me once and I might let you go, But try me twice, and I'll own your soul. When I possess you, you'll steal and you'll lie, You do what you have to -- Just to get high. The crimes you'll commit for my narcotic charms, Will be worth the pleasure you'll feel in your arms. You'll lie to your mother, you'll steal from your dad, When you see their tears, you should feel sad. But you'll forget your morals and how you were raised, I'll be your conscience, I'll teach you my ways I take kids from parents, and parents from kids, I turn people from God, and separate friends. I'll take everything from you, your looks and your pride, I'll be with you always -- right by your side. You'll give up everything -- your family, your home, Your friends, your money, then you'll be alone. I'll take and take, till you have nothing more to give When I'm finished with you, you'll be lucky to live. If you try me be warned - this is no game, If given the chance, I'll drive you insane. I'l ravish your body, I'll control your mind I'll own you completely, your soul will be mine. The nightmares I'll give you while lying in bed, The voices you'll hear, from inside your head. The sweats, the shakes, the visions you'll see, I want you to know, these are all gifts from me. But then it's too late, you'll know in your heart, That you are mine, and we shall not part. You'll regret that you tried me, they always do, but you came to me, not I to you. You knew this would happen, many times you were told, But you challenged my power, and chose to be bold. You could have said no, and just walked away, If you could live that day over, now what would you say? I'll be your master, you will be my slave, I'll even go with you, when you go to your grave. Now that you have met me, what will you do? Will you try me or not? It's all up to you. I can bring you more misery than words can tell, Come take my hand, let me lead you to hell. (This was written by a young Indian girl who was in jail for drug charges, and was addicted to meth. She wrote this while in jail. As you have just read, she fully grasped the horrors of the drug, as she tells in this simple, yet profound poem. She was released from jail, but, true to her story, the drug owned her. They found her dead not long after, with the needle still in her arm) Addiction does not discriminate Sign this petition - CHANGE THE SYSTEM

  • Support Joaquín Castro for Chair of the House Foreign Relations Committee
    With a new president and a new Congress being sworn in just a few weeks, the U.S. has an opportunity to forge a new path when it comes to foreign policy as we begin moving beyond the damage done by Donald Trump. That's why it's crucial for Rep. Joaquín Castro to be elected Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee by his colleagues this month. As Chair, Rep. Castro will boldly advance a new vision for our nation's role in the world, centered around human rights and human dignity, justice, accountability, cooperation, and diplomacy. Members of Congress will be voting later this month on the new committee chairs, and it's important that you make your voice heard now.

  • No Straw November
    In the US alone, over 500 million straws are used daily and it is estimated that over 8.3 billion straws pollute the world's beaches. At an average of 1.6 straws used daily, this challenge allows participants to focus on more eco-friendly options such as; paper, metal, glass, bamboo, and many more. Do you really need a straw? Is using a straw for a few minutes worth the 200+ years it takes to decompose?

  • Protect White Giraffe
    This is the only white giraffe in the world. His mother and sister were killed by poachers. In the wild, he does not stand a chance, even with a tracking device. Poachers and natural predators will easily be able to spot and kill him. He needs our help to be protected.

  • INVESTIGATE: Lindsey Graham tried to toss GA ballots
    South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham has once again proven that his loyalty to Donald Trump will always come before our democracy and the rule of law. According to a Washington Post story, Graham urged Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger -- a fellow Republican -- to throw out legally-cast ballots from targeted Georgia counties during the state’s recount. The conversation reportedly left Raffensperger “stunned.” Let’s be clear: every eligible vote cast in this election should and WILL be counted, no matter what Graham says or does. These voters faced a global pandemic, vote-suppressing laws, and rampant disinformation to make themselves heard in this all-important election year -- and Graham has no right to try to shut them out of our democracy. This is just another desperate play by Republicans to overturn the legitimate results of this election. As Trump files meritless lawsuit after lawsuit to stop ballot counting or otherwise interfere with election officials' work -- his lackeys are falling in line, doing everything in their power to support Trump’s futile effort. It’s time for direct action in response to their outrageous attempts to sow doubt about our electoral process and shut out voters. Graham currently chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee -- and if his party maintains its Senate majority, he'll oversee crucial legislation like the John Lewis Voting Rights Act. If Graham has been actively trying to toss out eligible ballots, he should not lead this committee’s work. Add your name to tell the Senate Ethics Committee: this heinous voter suppression attempt must be swiftly investigated -- and in the meantime, Senator Graham should step down as Judiciary Committee Chairman.
