• Justice for Jaahnavi Kandula!
    Jaahnavi Kandula is a daughter, a sister, a cousin, a friend and a human being, in addition to being Indian. Unlike what the officer said, Jaahnavi had VALUE, and an UNLIMITED VALUE. Let us stand and raise a voice against such abhorrent thinking, that Brown people have limited value. Despite the professional, social, and financial role played by Indians in the United States, we have not been able to escape racism and inequality many times, and our entire community has still quietly moved on. This event is the final straw and we demand fair treatment and for SPD to be held accountable for Jaahnavi's death. Please join us demanding justice for Jaahnavi Kandula.

  • It's Time to Deal with Supreme Court Corruption
    Right-wing billionaires have invested tens of millions to capture the Supreme Court. They've worked with Donald Trump and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to pack the court with conservative justices. They've funded cases to overturn abortion rights, shatter precedent, and strengthen corporate power. And as has become clear due to recent blockbuster revelations, these billionaires have lavished gifts on conservative justices including Thomas and Alito—who have not disclosed these gifts for years or recused themselves from cases where there would be an apparent conflict of interest. Furthermore, Justice Thomas's wife—conservative superactivist Ginni Thomas—has helped create and advise these networks of conservative donors and advocates. Yet Justice Thomas has never recused himself from cases involving her work—including cases around Donald Trump's efforts to subvert the results of the 2020 election, in which Ginni Thomas was directly implicated. Despite hundreds of thousands in gifts, rampant conflicts of interest, and a historically low level of public trust in the integrity of the court, Chief Justice John Roberts has refused to act. And while Democrats in Congress have held the first hearings about a judicial code of ethics for the Supreme Court, they have not gone far enough, while Chief Justice Roberts, Justice Alito, Crow and others have dismissed congressional efforts to rein in the court. Our senators need to use their power to rein in the corruption of the Supreme Court and take meaningful steps to restoring its balance and integrity. It is Congress's authority and responsibility to act. Democrats hold a majority and need to use the power of their committee chairs to hold sweeping investigations into corruption and finally move forward a comprehensive ethics reform bill for a vote. It will take far more to fix the right-wing capture of the court and deal with the epidemic of the influence of Big Money. We need to expand the court to rebalance it, to pursue impeachment of corrupt justices, and to pass other reforms that restore the integrity of our judicial system. Sweeping investigations and a vote on ethics reforms are steps that are important—and within the power of today's Democratic majority.

  • Remove all garage parking fees for 5290 Duke St until the garage doors are fully repaired.
    The security of this building is compromised due to the garage doors being broken. Since the creation of the Arbors tenant association, (established on 9/04/23) 5 vagabonds/addicts have been dismissed from the building and 1 vagabond ejected for sleeping at the leasing center. Neighbors have collaborated in real time to address major safety concerns. This building is hyper accessible to drug addicts looking to congregate in the stairwell and garage. Reports include an addict charging his phone in the hallway, attempted intrusions into the Latch door locks, an addict following a woman to her door, showering and doing drugs in the boiler room (boiler room now locked), and severe burglary in the garage. Firearms, laptops and many other personal belongings have been stolen from vehicles in the garage.

  • Tell Congress: End Cash Bail
    While cash bail preys upon those in poverty, it simultaneously privileges billionaires and the ultra-wealthy. When Donald Trump was charged in a sweeping racketeering indictment for alleged efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in the state of Georgia, he spent a little over 20 minutes at the Fulton County jail. A key factor in his release: Trump's ability to afford a $200,000 bond. It's simple: ability to pay is not why someone should stay in jail pretrial. In cities and states across the country, pretrial system reform has already begun. Now, it's time for Congress and state legislatures to act. Photo Attribution: SARAH-JI/LOVE & STRUGGLE PHOTOS

  • Bar insurrectionists from office under the U.S. Constitution!
    The political leaders who participated in the Insurrection—including the intimidation of election officials, the fake elector scheme, and the January 6, 2021 siege on the U.S. Capitol—must be held accountable and prevented from engaging in future attacks on our Democracy. The forces of political violence, disinformation, autocracy, and bigotry that drove the 1/6 Insurrection continue to pose grave threats to our country today. And while many of the rioters who stormed the Capitol have been held accountable, the vast majority of political leaders who actively undermined our Democracy and our Constitution have not. A large number of those individuals are current office holders or candidates for office. Barring or removing Insurrectionists from office is one important step toward preventing future attacks on our Constitution and laws. The U.S. Constitution is clear on this question: Section 3 of the 14th Amendment declares that anyone who previously held public office and then engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the United States is disqualified from holding future office unless two-thirds of Congress removes that bar. State and Federal officials have the power—indeed, the obligation—to uphold the 14th Amendment based on documented facts.

  • Make Billionaires Donate to Protect Maui
    A fight over the future of Maui is coming. Opportunists are already seeking to capitalize on Lāhainā and Maui’s crisis to profit as Maui rebuilds. The Big Money special interests who have held back progress in our islands for too long and helped create the conditions for our current mess can not be the ones to profit or lead us on the way out. We know that as we rebuild, we need to return the power, and rights to our land and water, to the people who give life to Lāhainā. Government and developers need to empower us to decide what’s next, and if they don’t, we will rise up together to fight for what's ours. Image credit: Tiffany Kidder Winn | AP

  • ABV Mentors Deserve CU's from the Clark County School District
    Black teachers have been shown to have a positive impact on all student academic and social outcomes. Having just one Black teacher increases students chances of going to college and reduces the numbers of suspension & expulsions. In Clark County only 7% of teachers are Black creating an ongoing crisis that disproportionately impacts our most vulnerable populations. SNBEI has declared the lack of Black teachers a state of emergency and has created the ABV Critical Mentorship Program to help retain Black teachers in Clark County School District. Among the program's standout achievements are the 15 ABV mentees who have successfully completed their mentorship journey and subsequently embraced licensed teaching positions within the Clark County School District. This accomplishment not only speaks to the effectiveness of the program but also underscores its pivotal role in nurturing the next generation of educators. The ABV Mentors program has also been established as a valuable mechanism for retaining both new licensed educators who serve as ABV mentees and veteran educators who serve as ABV mentors. This dual approach not only supports the growth and development of new educators but also leverages the experience and expertise of seasoned mentors However ABV Mentors are currently unable to earn CU's for their time and effort, while similar programs are able to earn credits. These credits translate to higher pay for mentors, which can increase retention and participation in the program. SNBEI is petitioning the district to allow ABV Mentors to earn credits equal to what other mentorship programs allow. Denial of credit is an equity issue that is discriminatory towards Black teachers.

  • Televise Trump's Criminal Trials
    Donald Trump and his cronies spread endless lies and misinformation following the 2020 election, which led to the deadly insurrection on January 6. Trump stopped at nothing to try to overturn the 2020 election results and overthrow our government. He is dangerous. He will keep lying to hold on to power, which is why it is important that we, the public, get the transparency that we deserve. Sign this petition to call on the Judicial Conference to approve televising the trials of Donald Trump. Doing so will give all of us the opportunity to see how justice works in our country and can go a long way toward combating the rampant rumors and conspiracy theories that would otherwise be flooding the airwaves and internet. Donald Trump and his allies will attempt to call these trials politically motivated or an abuse of power, but the American people deserve to hear the truth in court themselves. Once again, we urge you to approve televising these historic trials.
