• Tell President Biden: Shut down Guantánamo Bay!
    Rather than taking active steps to close the Guantánamo Bay detention facility, President Biden is actively expanding it. According to The New York Times, the Pentagon has begun building a new $4 million courtroom at Guantánamo where the United States plans to hold secret trials starting in 2023. That means at least another year of this ongoing national shame. It’s not only far from the closure we wanted to see, it’s working backward from it. But before ground breaks we have a moment of opportunity to remind the president of our decades-long demand: CLOSE GUANTÁNAMO. Sign now to send the president a message he can't miss: the time to shut down Guantánamo is now!

  • "I Love Democracy"
    According to the Brennan Center, Arizona legislatures passed three restrictive voting bills in 2021, AZ HB 1003, AZ SB 1485, and AZ SB 1819. These bills will purge voters from voting lists and limit the time voters can fix their absentee ballots and cure their signatures. These new laws compound earlier discriminatory voting laws passed in Arizona that restrict ballot collecting and provisional ballots. The majority of voters harmed by these laws are African American, Latino and Native American voters, rural voters, and poor and low-income voters. Join us as we demand the NFL move Super Bowl LVII from Arizona due to its discriminatory voting laws in order to protect our democracy.

  • Shine the Light of Television on the Jan 6th Hearings
    The attack on the US Capital, during the certification of the results of the 2020 Presidential election, and the campaign to sow doubt over the results of that election, was one of the most serious attempts to subvert the will of the American people, and the Constitutional responsibilities of the US Senate, in our lifetimes. The Republican Party and it’s Congressional and Senate members have since joined in the campaign to convince the American people of the “Big Lie,” that there was massive fraud during the 2020 elections, and are blocking the passage of The Voters Rights and John Lewis Acts that would prevent Republican controlled State legislatures from passing bills that would disenfranchise minority voters, continue "extreme gerrymandering,” and permit partisan election officials to overturn the results in future election cycles. At the same time, ex-President Trump, his advisors, lawyers and enablers, have exhausted their legal fight to prevent their subpoenaed testimony before the Special January 6th Investigative Commission and the denial of access to documents related to their roles in the events leading up to the January 6th, 2021, attack on our nation’s Capital. The upcoming sessions of the Special Commission, when the central figures in that attempt to prevent the certification of the Presidential election results will be testifying, are crucial to our understanding of the persons responsible for the campaigns of disinformation and events leading up to and during the attack, in order to prevent future attempts to overturn elections that are central to the survival of our democracy. The light of full media coverage of that testimony is the best way to ensure that the Special Committee achieves it goals and prevent those opposed to its investigation from continuing “The Big Lie” and delegitimizing the Commission and it’s findings/recommendations.

  • Suspend Dole's Tasteless Commercial - AN UPDATE
    Let's urge Dole Sunshine to take corrective action! Their recent commercial, "Hold My Fruit Bowl" ends with a troubling image of a rock striking a person fishing off an icy coastline: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzhyWHRdP48 The stereotypical implication is deeply problematic and easily interpreted as racist. Dole Sunshine needs to rethink this advertisement, and pull it immediately.

  • Petition to the Timilty Middle School & Boston Public Schools: Sex Education & Counselors NOW!
    Andira Ture is a Cape Verdean mother and activist whose 11-year-old son attends James P. Timilty Middle School in Roxbury. In two separate incidents on school grounds this past year, students sexually harassed and assaulted her son. The Timilty School and other schools in the Boston Public School (BPS) system have a history of sexual misconduct and a culture of disregard for sexual assault that goes beyond Ture’s son’s experience. Former dean of students at the Timilty School was arrested for statutory rape of a student in 2020, and a former teacher at the Timilty School pleaded guilty this December to raping a 12-year-old student starting in 1996. The Timilty is closing this year, but we know this issue is bigger than just one school: we need sex education and counselors NOW! We are asking parents, students, and teachers to join us in demanding better of BPS! Read an interview with Andira Ture here:https://www.liberationnews.org/11-year-old-sexually-assaulted-at-school-mother-fights-for-justice-how-am-i-gonna-trust-them-to-teach-my-son/

  • Don't Suppress Our Vote: Sign NYS Senate Bill S4379
    The Solution It is the community through its collective vote that is in the best position to decide whether a particular judicial candidate understands the feel, tastes, smell, touch and pulse of the community. This is of particular concern to communities of color that have for far too long, been and continue to a great extent to be marginalized by a judiciary that has been ignorant and insensitive to communities of color. It is only recently that with demographic changes in New York City in particular, that Black and Latino communities have exercised their vote to elect a qualified judiciary more reflective of the community’s demographic make-up. It has been only through their vote, that communities of color have been able to diversify the judiciary to the extent that is has begun to increase to a certain extent, public confidence in the judiciary and the court system as a whole. Indeed, Judges with diverse backgrounds offer unique perspectives and viewpoints that would serve to provide decision-making power to formerly disenfranchised populations and equal justice for all. As a result, BILL NUMBER: S4379 has been introduced and passed by the NYS legislature and awaits Governor Kathy Hochul’s signature. TITLE OF BILL An act to amend the judiciary law, in relation to making technical changes to provisions providing for certification for service as a retired judge of the court of appeals or a retired justice of the supreme court. PURPOSE To make certification of retired Court of Appeals Judges and Supreme Court Justices who otherwise meet the statutory criteria for certification automatic, rather than discretionary.
