• Make January 6 annual US Democracy Day
    In light of the tragic and wholly anti-democratic events of January 6, 2021, the creation of this Day of Democracy would help us ensure that actions such as the siege of the US Capitol Building will never be repeated, and that the ideals of democracy continue to be the core values upon which we build a more just, compassionate, and unified nation for all.

  • Pro-Trump terrorists & white supremacists must be stopped
    We are horrified by the violence pro-Trump terrorists and white supremacists committed at the U.S. Capitol and across Washington, D.C. last week, and the swarming of state capitals across the country. These were not peaceful protests but rather an outrageous attempt by a pro-Trump mob to use force and violence to overturn a free and fair election. There is no question that Donald Trump, aided and abetted by unprincipled Republican members of Congress, is responsible for this attack on our democracy -- both by inciting the violence and exacerbating the structural racism and bigotry that drives it. He made a dangerous situation even worse with his incendiary speech at his rally, tweets, and disgraceful video yesterday. That Trump supporters were able to breach the Capitol with relative impunity stands in stark contrast to the response we saw to the anti-police brutality protests throughout 2020 and Black Lives Matter demonstrations this summer, and highlights how deeply structural racism and white supremacy is woven into our society. We must remember Miriam Carey, a Black mom who crashed her car near the Capitol and was shot five times and killed by the Capitol Police. Every leader in this country must recommit to ending systemic racism, doing everything in their power to ensure the safety of marginalized groups of people, and continuous advocacy for equity and justice for every single person. This includes Congress impeaching President Trump, as well as the Cabinet and Vice President invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. → *Join us in urging Congress to impeach Trump immediately and for the Vice President and Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from office ASAP.

  • Investigate Presence of White Supremecists in Philadephia Police Department
    There have been credible reports that multiple terrorists showed their law enforcement badges as they attacked the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6, 2021. There is a well-documented presence of white supremacist ideology in police departments in the United States. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that at least one officer is being investigated by internal affairs as she was within the group that ultimately attacked the Capitol on January 6th. Any officer who harbors white supremacist ideology or supports overthrowing a democratically elected government is a danger to our city. We, as citizens of this city, have an obligation to each other to determine whether such terrorists are in the ranks of our law enforcement and expel them immediately. We have a heightened obligation to support and defend our neighbors who are targeted by these hate groups due to their race, religion or immigration status. None of us are naïve enough to think that this malignancy will disappear when Donald Trump’s term ends. This Petition therefore respectfully requests that the Office of the Mayor of Philadelphia, Philadelphia City Council and the Office of the District Attorney of Philadelphia conduct a thorough investigation of the Philadelphia Police Department, including reviewing social media accounts and attendance at rallies for Donald Trump, in order to identify and expel any member of the police force that harbors white supremacist ideologies and/or poses a threat to our democracy by supporting insurrection against our federal and state governments. Doing so will advance our public security and help to repair the fractured confidence that many of our neighbors have in the police department’s ability to equitably and safely carry out the important role it plays in our daily lives.

  • Restore the Integrity of Our Skyline, Remove the Trump Sign
    The assault on January 6th, 2021 to our Nation's congress and our Capitol Building was an aberration, and a direct threat to our democracy. This violent attack was instigated by Mr. Trump and Mr. Trump Jr.. The rioters attempted to destroy the institutions that make us the strongest democracy in the world. These rioters displayed Neo-nazi, racist, and fascist symbols. As more footage of the incident is brought to light, we all are witnessing the violent nature of the groups that forced themselves into The People's House. A police officer was murdered and four other people died in this violent event. It is one of the darkest days in the history of our country. We must make sure that his name is not glorified in any way, because if we do not act we will have normalized the behavior Mr. Trump and his rioting mob of followers displayed. We Chicagoans and Americans ask you to do what is in your power to remove the sign that is now a stain to a city we are proud to call home. Thank you.

  • Call for Resignation or Expulsion of RI Rep. Price
    Rep. Price has admitted that on January 6, 2021, he attended the pro-Trump riot at the Capitol. Incredibly, he subsequently tweeted, "Yes i marched to the capitol with 1 million peaceful patriots. Unfortunately ANTIFA /BLM infiltrated our peaceful movement and they got caught in the act.." His false, seditious and racist statements clearly show inexcusable contempt for the rule of law and disorderly behavior that must be punished to protect the integrity of our democracy. If Rep. Price's actions and words are not punished, the Jan. 6 capitol riots and violence will be encouraged and could happen again.

  • DA Lori Frugoli: Prosecute individual spreading hate in Fairfax, CA
    What more evidence do we need than watching him place the stickers? See the video: - https://abc7news.com/society/bay-area-resident-confronts-man-putting-up-swastika-stickers/8262638/ Charge this individual with vandalism, trespassing and hate crimes. Bring him to court, in front of a jury of his peers. These threatening hateful acts belong adjudicated by the criminal justice system. Her explanation is unacceptable: “In this case, documentation of the acts did serve our community as it shed light on the conduct and let the individual know that such behavior does not represent our county." A vandal who sprays graffiti on private property is arrested, charged and fined. This act placing swastika’s stating “we are everywhere” on private property is both vandalism and perhaps a hate crime. Frugoli does our Marin community and Noah Mohan a huge disservice by deciding there is “insufficient evidence” to charge this person. If there is doubt, let the jury weigh in. The DA plans to hold a forum to “stop hate crimes and hateful behavior.” This person needs to be accountable and punished for these unacceptable actions. Restorative Justice would be an option, of course. More than ever, now, we need legal public actions to challenge hateful threatening gestures, not forums. Demand DA Frugoli explain her thought process AND prosecute.

  • Stop Funding Insurrection
    On January 6th, 2021, a violent mob of Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to block the U.S. Congress from certifying Joe Biden's election as President of the United States. Thanks to poisonous right-wing propaganda from Fox News and others, millions of Americans now believe the total lie that Donald Trump won the 2020 elections. There is zero evidence to support this propaganda, and U.S. courts have repeatedly rejected such claims. It is time to hold corporate advertisers and right-wing donors publicly accountable. We must stop their support for insurrectionist politicians and propaganda platforms that threaten the survival of our democracy.

  • Expel Senator Josh Hawley
    Why is this important? TWO DAYS AGO, THE US CAPITOL WAS ON LOCKDOWN AS JOSH HAWLEY SIGNALED, WITH RAISED FIST, HIS ENCOURAGEMENT TO THE INSURRECTIONSTS, AND EVEN SENT OUT A FUND-RAISING EMAIL.

HIS ACTIONS HAVE INSPIRED • ARMED STANDOFF IN THE CAPITOL CHAMBERS • EVACUATING CHAMBERS • MEMBERS OF CONGRESS SHELTERING IN PLACE

  • Stay Remote & Save Lives! Illinois School District U-46 Paciencia NO pacientes!
    ~~~Español abajo At the beginning of the school year there was an agreement to close schools if the positivity rate reached a certain number. There is no limit now and we are the highest positivity rate since the pandemic started. This is a public health emergency for everyone: 1. Students being back in schools will continue to spread the virus contrary to Covid-19 prevention measures 2. U-46 is the second largest school district in the state of Illinois which translates into a super spreader situation if students go back to schools 3. Cleaning staff, bus drivers, support staff, teachers, nurses, their families and communities beyond Elgin are also being put at risk 4. We can wait a bit longer now that there is a vaccine and come back to school safely 5. This is at the tail end of the holiday season where people spent time in groups 6. The money being spent on complying with safety measures could be spent on remote socio-emotional support for students 7. Community members of color have been disproportionately affected by Covid-19 8. Students and staff are individually responsible to self-certify. This did not go well back when the schools were hybrid. The safety measures are not being followed leading to safety concerns 9. Families have not been asked for input since August, 2020 Al comienzo del año escolar se acordó cerrar las escuelas si la tasa de positividad alcanzaba cierto número. Ahora no hay límite y tenemos la tasa de positividad más alta desde que comenzó la pandemia. Este es una emergencia de salud pública para todos: 1. Los estudiantes que regresen a la escuela continuarán propagando el virus en contra de las medidas de prevención contra el Covid-19 2. U-46 es el segundo distrito escolar más grande del estado de Illinois, lo que se traduce en una situación de gran difusión de Covid-19 si los estudiantes regresan a las escuelas 3. Pone en riesgo al personal de limpieza, los conductores de autobuses, el personal de apoyo, los maestros, las enfermeras, sus familias y comunidades mas allá de la ciudad de Elgin también corren peligro 4. Podemos esperar un poco más ahora que hay una vacuna y regresar a la escuela sanos y salvos 5. Estamos al final de la temporada navideña, donde las personas pasaron tiempo en grupos 6. El dinero que se gasta en el cumplimiento de las medidas de salud y seguridad podría destinarse al apoyo socio-emocional a distancia para los estudiantes 7. Los miembros de la comunidad afroamericana y latina se han visto afectados de manera desproporcionada por Covid-19 8. Los estudiantes y el personal son responsables individualmente de autocertificarse. Esto no fue un procedimiento exitoso cuando las escuelas estaban en el plan híbrido de aprendizaje. No se siguen las medidas de seguridad, lo que genera problemas de salud 9. A las familias no se les ha pedido su opinión desde agosto de 2020

  • Community Open Letter in Support of Current DCARA Board
    In an attempt to regain power you have authorized the filing of multiple lawsuits against DCARA and its new Board members, which attempt to throw out the May 2019 community agreement and the September 2019 election of the current Board. Due to your utter lack of transparency and involvement in the racist incident during spring 2019, you have lost the trust of the Bay Area Deaf community. You should not use the legal system to disenfranchise the Deaf community and forcibly takeover this important nonprofit organization. We, the Bay Area Deaf Community, call on you to immediately withdraw your legal actions and accept the wishes of our community for new leadership on DCARA’s Board and the continuance of DCARA’s Executive Director, Raymond Rodgers.
