• Stop Philadelphia Curfew
    Philadelphia's City Council seems set on passing an outrageous curfew law that violates a number of civil liberties -- this law aims to keep African-American youth out of more affluent white neighborhoods, further expands the mayor's ability to avoid the democratic process and create his own laws, and makes it illegal for all adults to take young relatives such as nieces or nephews out to enjoy the City of Brotherly Love. We believe that no citizen should fear the police harassment or detainment of innocent children. We're calling on the City Council to stop the expansion of the curfew through Bill 110633 and end the attacks on Philadelphia's future.

  • Help Veto SENATE BILL No.1006 (Act 7 of 2011)
    Pennsylvania is faced with a budget crisis due to poor management. With this single amendment Pennsylvania lost 12 million tax dollars annually. Rendell vetoed this amendment for that very reason. Since then, the legislative branch and governor Corbett have acted shortsightedly with no regard for our budget or our rights as citizens using extreme cases of abuse of synthetic cannabis and use by minors as reason to pass the nations strictest state law in effect. By signing this petition you agree that this amendment should be rescinded. Let's send a clear message in the amount of several hundred thousand voices that we disagree with their recent decision.

  • Full Federal Recognition for the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina
    The Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina was given full state recognition in 1885 and in 1956 by the United States Congress, but Congress withheld the full benefits of federal recognition from the tribe. Congress can correct this injustice by bringing the Lumbee Recognition Act which passed out of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee to the floor for a full vote and passage by the Senate and the House of Representatives. We are calling on the United States Congress to correct this injustice and bring closure to the 125 year pursuit of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina for Full Federal Recognition.

  • Citizens Opposed to U.S. Department of Justice Approval of the Proposed 2012 Redistricting Plan f...
    On Sept. 12, 2011 Beaufort County Council approved a 2012 redistricting plan for the Beaufort County School Board that will require 10 of the 11 current incumbent school board members to run for re-election in 2012, although several of them were just elected in 2010. We believe that the plan was designed primarily to dismantle the majority-Black leadership of the school board, although 3 of the 6 African-Americans members don't represent majority-Black districts. Also, requiring 10 incumbent school board members to run in the same year erases the safeguards created by staggered elections, and will disrupt the stability of the school district's governing body. We ask that the DOJ reject the plan because it threatens to undermine minority voting strength; drastically reduces Black representation on both the school board and county council board with an impact that is both draconian and punitive for Black elected officials who're not Republicans.
