• Demand Target Put Pride 2023 Merch Back Into the Stores!
    The LGBTQ community has faced backlash on a level not seen in over a decade. State after state is trying to ban gender-affirming care for people under to the age of 19 and removing children from the homes that support their child’s gender and/or sexual identity. If Target was willing to accept our money for 10 plus years, they should hold strong rather than removing items WE and ALLIES wear to support LGBTQ persons, their families, and the future of all those who will be a part of OUR community.

  • Help Save Independent Local Wine Shops in Your Neighborhood!
    If allowed to pass, this proposed bill would put real families out of work, the wine selection for the consumer would suffer and local winegrowers would be forced to downsize.

  • Add Your Name: Support the Writers Guild of America Strike! #WGAStrike
    President Biden said, “I sincerely hope that the writers’ strike in Hollywood gets resolved—and the writers are given the fair deal they deserve—as soon as possible. This is an iconic, meaningful American industry. And we need the writers, and all the workers, and everyone involved to tell the stories of our nation.” Netflix, Amazon, Apple, Disney, Discovery-Warner, NBC Universal, Paramount and Sony, acting under the umbrella of the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP), are refusing to treat writers with dignity and respect. In a letter to its members, the Writers Guild of America’s Negotiating Committee wrote that “From their refusal to guarantee any level of weekly employment in episodic television, to the creation of a "day rate" in comedy variety, to their stonewalling on free work for screenwriters and on AI for all writers, they have closed the door on their labor force and opened the door to writing as an entirely freelance profession.” The impact of the companies' greed is not just causing harm to these workers, it is limiting the stories that come from the communities we need to hear from most. As the industry’s business model becomes unsustainable for emerging writers there will potentially be fewer stories penned by historically marginalized communities. The lack of representation impacts us all —and it’s especially jarring given right-wing attacks on sharing diverse stories in classrooms and libraries. It also just means the range of TV shows we get to see will be worse. It's pretty clear that writers and creators should be fairly compensated to ensure creative talent of all backgrounds can contribute to the quality content we all love. The Writers Guild of America simply wants a fair contract. Please add your name to support these writers and the millions of people their work impacts every day.

  • Tell NYU to Cut Ties to Fox host Maria Bartiromo
    Trump’s first interview after losing the 2020 election was with NYU Trustee and Fox host Maria Bartiromo. Before the interview even took place Bartiromo ran the questions by The White House. During it, she set Trump up to spread conspiracies by noting, “you’ve said many times that this election was rigged, that there was much fraud. And the facts are on your side. Let’s start there.” She also told millions of people, “This is disgusting! And we cannot allow America’s election to be corrupted,” during her interview. Maria Bartiromo was a key pipeline for Steve Bannon and Rudy Giuliani to spread conspiracy theories against Democrats and voting integrity. She also helped disgraced propagandist Sidney Powell spread the false idea that there were “voting irregularities.” Bartiromo was going to be called as a witness in the defamation case Dominion voting systems brought against Fox News before it was settled for $787 million. Furthermore, Bartiromo’s actions were so unethical that she is named as a defendant in voting election technology company Smartmatic's $2.7 billion defamation case against Fox News because she was part of a “conspiracy to spread disinformation.” An appellate court declined to toss out the Smartmatic lawsuit, writing that Smartmatic “alleges in detailed fashion that in their coverage and commentary, Fox News, Dobbs, and Bartiromo effectively endorsed and participated in the statements with reckless disregard for, or serious doubts about, whether the assertions or implications that plaintiffs had participated in election fraud had any basis in truth or were supported by any reliable evidence.” This should be simple for NYU. Bartiromo’s abuse of her power goes against the NYU Code of Ethical Conduct so the university should cut ties with Bartiromo. The Board of Trustees is expected to provide reliable guidance to the university, and as a documented liar on an issue as important as the federal elections, Maria Bartiromo has no business being associated with NYU.

  • Tell Google to Stop Collecting Location Data and Aiding Abortion Prosecutors
    After Roe v. Wade was overturned, Google promised in July 2022 to protect sensitive health data by deleting the Location History of users who visited abortion clinics. However, Accountable Tech’s latest experiment shows that the Location History for a short trip to an abortion clinic — like someone dropping off a friend or family member — is still collected and retained if a user has Location History enabled on their Google Account. On top of that, Google is collecting and retaining location search queries for abortion clinics by default for 18 months. That means if you search for an abortion clinic on Google Maps, that information will be kept in your Google Account for 18 months, possibly putting you at risk. It’s unacceptable that Google made a promise to protect users in a post-Roe America and is still falling short. Join us in calling them out and demanding they stop aiding abortion prosecutors.

  • Stop Funding Fox!
    Fox News agreed to pay Dominion Voting Systems nearly $800 million in a defamation lawsuit for broadcasting lies about the 2020 election to boost their profits and rating. It's never been publicly clearer that Fox is a right-wing propaganda machine. The truth is that Fox News will continue spewing lies and hatred, further destructing our democracy, until they start losing profits. With Fox's reputation on the line, this is a prime opportunity to demand that advertisers change course and stop doing business with Fox. In just a couple of weeks, these corporate advertisers will be striking new deals with Fox News for the next year. AT&T, General Motors, and Subway have a choice to stop future advertising deals with Fox News or to continue funding the hate and lies that undermine our democracy. Our message is clear: Stop Funding Fox!

  • Fox News: Apologize On-Air For Your Lies
    It’s telling that Fox News would rather pay hundreds of millions in a settlement than face a jury and tell the truth under oath for the entire nation to see. They will attempt to move past their lies and sweep this lawsuit under the rug, but they need to face the nation and apologize for the deceit that undermined our democracy. Fox News claims that this settlement will allow the country to move forward, but we are still seeing the impact of the Big Lie to this day, with election deniers running for office and voters having distrust in the electoral process. Fox News needs to do what’s right and apologize.

  • TELL Starbucks New CEO: Respect Workers’ Rights!
    Starbucks' new CEO has a chance to turn the company around and treat workers with respect. Let's call on him to act! Starbucks, like so many corporations, is doing everything in its power to keep workers from winning their union and a fair contract. They know when we stand together, we're more powerful and can win the respect we've earned.

  • Democrats should stop appearing on Fox News
    For nearly three decades, Fox News has operated as a divisive right-wing propaganda outlet, misleading millions of Americans away from reality and toward racism, lies, and unfounded fears. Fox has proven time and time again that the network is not a legitimate news outlet. From spreading QAnon conspiracies to anti-COVID vaccine rhetoric to pushing anti-LGBTQ+ discrimination, Fox has shown that they will spout hate and lies to push their political agenda and gain viewers. Each time Democrats in Congress appear on Fox News, even with the good intentions of breaking through to Fox's audience, they continue feeding the illusion that Fox is a credible news source, and Fox uses that credibility to promote dangerous disinformation. Nothing has exposed Fox’s lies more than the multibillion-dollar defamation lawsuits they are facing from Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic. Recent filings prove that Fox News executives and leading anchors knew that Trump lost the election, but they promoted the Big Lie to protect ratings and profits. Now, after Tucker Carlson ran a lengthy segment on his Fox "News" show in a pathetic attempt to convince his viewers that January 6 was not a violent insurrection, Senator Chuck Schumer tweeted that he won’t go on Tucker Carlson’s show until he “admits to his viewers live on air that he has been lying to them about the 2020 elections and about what happened on January 6th.” On his show, Carlson claimed the insurrectionists were “peaceful,” and “orderly and meek … sightseers.” But we know the truth. January 6 was a violent, criminal conspiracy led by Donald Trump to forcibly overturn the 2020 election results. More elected officials should follow Sen. Schumer's example. It’s time for Congressional Democrats to come together and refuse to appear on Fox News until they set the record straight and tell the truth about the 2020 election and January 6.

  • Oferta dos CTT para permitir o rastreio total USPS do correio registado de entrada nos EUA
    PETITION: CTT offer to allow for full USPS tracking of US inbound registered mail. Dear CTT Postal Service of Portugal, We are kindly asking you to redefine your tracked offerings concerning international outgoing registered mail to the USA. Who we are? We are a community of Portuguese crafters and online shops with over 50% of our sales going to the US market. We ship several thousand parcels of sold goods to our private customers in the USA, and are sending you this request due to the continuous problems with deliveries to the USA. What is the issue? Registered airmail tracking numbers (with barcodes) do not appear in USPS tracking systems. CTT only allows us to track up until leaving the country. If USPS continues to not scan the tracking numbers the packages will simply disappear. We don't even receive a message stating that it has arrived in the US. We need to provide proof to our customers that packages have arrived in the US. We are experiencing a huge growth in claims, refunds and negative feedbacks from our US customers and as result we keep loosing business and you too will loose business. We pay the highest possible form of shipping CTT offers, yet it is not supported by USPS systems as seen in this notice on their website: ************************************************************************ International Registered Mail Tracking Suppression of Import Registered Mail Effective October 1, 2015, the Postal Service™ will no longer offer visibility for international import Registered Mail™ items unless International Posts have upgraded to offer their customers U.S. Postal Service® products that come with visibility. The International Posts which have upgraded to offer their customers Postal Service products that offer visibility are listed here: https://about.usps.com/pos.../2015/pb22424/html/info_002.htm ************************************************************************** How will we know when the recipient receives the package? How will we know if the recipient signed for it? How will we know if a notice has been left or unclaimed? How will we know it there is a delay? What do we ask: We would kindly ask you to become compliant with the USPS registered airmail tracking system even if that means the cost to ship Registered mail piece from Portugal will increase significantly. That will allow the USPS to scan packages as soon as they arrive in the US. Would like this information to appear on your website so that all your customers and our customers in the US could have access to this information. If this information does not appear CTT will inevitably receive thousands of customer services complaints and requests to "Reclamações" to search for lost Registered mail, which CTT will have to compensate. We would like all our clients to have a clear understanding that our packages have actually left Portugal and are waiting to be processed in one of the USPS sorting facilities on the US territory. We really hope for your understanding and cooperation. Thank you very much for your time, From the Portuguese online sellers, self employed small businesses, crafters, regular registered mail senders of gifts and of course many thanks from our recipients in the US. * * *

  • Tell Congress to Act NOW: Prevent the Norfolk Southern train derailment from happening again!
    Senators have introduced the “Railway Safety Act of 2023” to address some of the concerns about rail safety that resurfaced after the disastrous Norfolk Southern train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio. The bill calls for stronger safety standards for all trains carrying hazardous materials and also expands those standards to trains not currently subject to high-hazard flammable train, or HHFT, regulations (like the train in East Palestine). We need this legislation to pass swiftly in the Senate, so it can go to the House, and then Biden's desk. People deserve protection and regulations so that railroad workers are able to feel safe at work, and residents feel safe knowing trains passing by their communities will be less likely to derail. A second train derailed in Ohio just a few days ago. We don't have time to waste to take widespread action towards rail safety. Photo Credit: The New York Times

  • Tell U.S. pharmacies: Provide abortion care to your customers!
    We must remember that the majority of voters support safe and legal abortion access. Voters in states such as Kansas, Kentucky and Montana overwhelmingly supported abortion rights in ballot measures last year. We cannot let misogynistic Republicans in the pockets of anti-abortion extremists overturn the will of the people! It's bad enough that the conservatively-stacked Supreme Court stripped us of our constitutional right to abortion. Now, Republicans are going after a safe, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved medication for early pregnancy abortion that's used in more than half of all abortions in the United States. Abortion pills such as mifepristone have been FDA-approved and safely used by customers for over 20 years. Last month, the Biden administration approved retail pharmacies such as Walgreens, Rite Aid, and CVS to dispense the pills as part of a larger plan to protect abortion access and reduce maternal mortality. Threats from Republican attorneys general to keep these pharmacies from dispensing the pills have chilling effects on multiple fronts. Not only are they putting customers' lives at risk, but they are also controlling private businesses, customers' lives, and our democracy. U.S. pharmacies must not give in to GOP bullying and fascism and to protect their customers' right to abortion care!
