  • Label GMO's
    Some people do not want to consume, use as drugs, or be injected with GMO's and while the FDA has stated that it is not up to citizens to decide what foods and drugs are safe, it is the FDA's job to regulate these things. The bill of rights ensure freedom of religion for all in the United States and GMO's are against certain religious doctrines. There are scriptures mentioned in the Christian bible and Hindu texts as well warning against mixing the blood of humans with animals and other related issues. Since GMO's often use animal, bacterial, and viral DNA from animals, people who want to follow these texts should have a religious right to know what is in their food, drugs, and vaccines. Please label all GMO's including what type (animal, viral and from what animal, bacterial and from what animal) of DNA and/or genes that have been added, removed, promoted, inhibited, moved, rearranged, replicated, changed in any way, or corrupted so that people can follow their doctrine freely without inhibiting the rights of corporations to sell these products.

  • Civil Unions are great, but DE needs marriage equality
    This May 11 was an historic day as Governor Jack Markell signed Civil Unions into law in Delaware. That's great, but it falls far short of full civil rights for lesbian and gay couples. Only full marriage equality will do that. Sign our petition demanding that Delaware enact full marriage equality in 2012.

  • Ask the UW-Madison Administration to Modify Student ID Cards
    Currently, most student identification cards, including those issued by the University of Wisconsin-Madison, are not compliant with 2011 Wisconsin Act 23, commonly known as the Voter ID law. The Administration could modify our ID cards to make them valid for voting purposes. We're asking them to move on this issue as soon as possible, so that students will have fewer obstacles to voting in the spring 2011 elections.

  • Stop Amazon.com Censorship
    Amazon.com KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing) messageboards are aflame with reports from people whose books are being banned for objectionable content. While many of these books may indeed have content that is not fit for everyone, none of these books whose bans we are protesting are violating Federal or State Laws. This very same content that Amazon believes to be Objectionable from Independent Publishers is "permissible" when it comes from big name authors and book series such as George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones series, Terry Goodkind and his Sword of Truth Series (which contains a demon rape scene), Stephen King's various novels, and the explicit scenes contained within The Bible. These are unfair business and sales practices being conducted by Amazon.com's KDP services to marginalize Independent Publishers in favor of the large publishing houses. These unfair actions are disgusting at best, anti-trust at worst. This IS CORPORATE CENSORSHIP akin to ELECTRONIC BOOK BURNING and BOOK BANNING and IT MUST BE STOPPED NOW!

  • Let's Protect America! True Equality NOW!
    Subject: Let's Have Honesty In Our Equality, America! Hi, The 14th Amendment doesn't actually grant Equal Protection to all Americans, the way that most of us have been raised to believe. There is a gradient of justice. In fact, Justice Anton Scalia went so far as to remind us in an interview with California Lawyer that issues of gender discrimination that are brought before the Supreme Court are given intermediate scrutiny while issues of race are given strict scrutiny, even though they're both immutable traits. (http://www.callawyer.com/story.cfm?eid=913358&evid=1) EQUAL PROTECTION SHOULD MEAN EQUAL WHEN IT COMES TO PROTECTION UNDER THE LAW. Right now, the Supreme Court is also more willing to promote the rights of corporations above its citizens, when it is their job to interpret the Constitution and adjudicate cases based upon it - not to create new law; that is the legislature's job. In one amendment, we can remind our Supreme Court that corporations are not equal to people, but are made of people, and are not deserving of natural rights, and welcome traditionalist justices into the 21st century with a the meaning of equality that every American understands as true.

  • Stop the GOP's attack on voters rights!
    The GOP has declared war on the American peoples right to vote! They are passing legislation that would make it more difficult for citizens to register to vote or for groups like the League of Women Voters to register new voters, cut back on early voting, require government-issued IDs that specifically target the elderly, college students and minority voters, and disenfranchise ex-felons!

  • Anti-racism & Redistricting WA State Legislative Seats
    Communities of color are expanding in WA state, but their numbers in the state legislature are dropping. A proposal from the WA State Redistricting Commission would worsen this under representation. If the Commission's plan to remove North Beacon Hill from the 11th Legislative District takes effect, social justice & labor advocate State Representative Bob Hasegawa would lose his seat in the legislature. Send a pro-diversity message to the commission.
