• Injustice And Victimization Of The Disabled In New York City
    On February 29, 2012, my husband left our home to work the swing shift on the East Side Access Tunnel Project. He had a life altering devastating accident. The man who left for work that day was not the man who came home. He was the sole earner of our household who came home to a totally disabled wife. A falsified, or fraudulent, MTA Capital Construction Incident Report was manufactured less than 24 hours after my husband’s accident. The defense team knowingly chose this incident report that benefited their position as the basis for their questions asked in depositions and the foundation of their arguments presented to the NY Supreme Court. This invented MTA Incident Report was placed into evidence in the same filing with Bennett’s statement at the time of the accident. Through the Freedom Of Information Law (FOIL) I have proven the manipulation of many facts and circumstances. I discovered the New York City Judicial System at the Supreme Court level that exists “behind closed doors” is not just accepted, it has been encouraged, insulated, and normalized to the point that duplicity is the foundation of the litigation process. We have made the decision to share, because we know that we are not alone. Please help us to bring this into the light and assist others desperately in need by signing this petition and sharing it with as many people as possible. These professionals and institutions need to fulfill their basic functions as advertised and mandated. If you have had a similar experience and would like to share please contact me on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter under Kerry Ann Galligan Katz, NYC Injustice And Victimization Of The Disabled, or #NYCVictimInjustice. I will post short updates sharing the details of our experience on a biweekly basis. Thank you for helping to tell Governor Cuomo and Mayor DeBlasio that judicial oversight is imperative and that this will not be tolerated. No one should be trapped in a maze of privately accepted brutality and duplicity for doing the right thing and going to work.

  • Step Down Colorado Governor Polis for not taxing Oil and Gas #stepdownpolis
    We are in a pandemic crisis and the state could have desperately used that money for ventilators, healthcare resources and costs and for relief to the many citizens impacted by our state economy stalled and even collapsing.

  • Tell Senators Burr and Loeffler: Resign for insider trading on the coronavirus
    Demand Progress filed a formal complaint with the Senate Ethics Committee calling for an investigation into Senator Richard Burr for insider trading. He and Senator Kelly Loeffler also need to resign. At the very same time that Senator Burr and Senator Loeffler were telling the public that the "economy is strong" and even attacking Democrats for exaggerating the danger of the coronavirus, they were dumping millions of dollars of stock holdings based on classified intelligence. Senators Burr and Loeffler are counting on us to be too wrapped up in the exploding coronavirus news cycle to take them to task — but this corruption is just too immense. Demand Progress is filing with the Senate Ethics Committee and the Securities and Exchange Commission to launch a formal investigation into these senators' insider trading. We're also leading the coalition asking Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to remove Sen. Burr as chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee -- and both need to resign. Now.

  • Tell MSNBC and CNN to Stop Airing Trump's COVID-19 Press Conferences Live
    Broadcasting these events live is a public health risk. Trump is feeding his viewers with disinformation and misinformation. It is impossible to fact-check this information in real time, and viewers are likely to engage in dangerous, risky behaviors if they listen only to Trump's public statements. He is also using this platform to campaign for reelection by promoting his "brand" as someone who stands up to the news media. By broadcasting these segments, you are feeding into an unhealthy dynamic in which Trump is able to further undermine trust in the news media. By carrying these briefings live, you are complicit in spreading dangerous lies and division: both are killing us.

  • Congressional Pay Cut During COVID-19 Shutdowns
    I believe that this would work as an incentive for Congress to pass a reasonable bill to assist Americans who are struggling in the wake of this pandemic. Prioritizing American citizens over corporate bailouts would help to increase the faith lost by the US Federal Government.

  • No Covid-19 Bailout Money for Trump Corp
    President Trump has refused to commit to rejecting bailout funds for his personal business. For the President or any member of Congress to receive taxpayer corporate bailout funds would be corruption of the highest order. Any bailout bill put forth and signed my Congress and the President for victims of the Covid-19 outbreak must exclude Trump Corp and any other business owned by the President, Vice-President, Cabinet Members and any member of US Congress.

  • Don't bailout corporations, bailout Americans: Demand $2000/mo during Coronavirus crisis
    It is imperative that we have a common-sense approach that protects we the people and not corporations. In terms of potential deaths and the impact on our economy, the crisis we face from coronavirus is on the scale of a major war, and we must act accordingly. We must begin thinking on a scale comparable to the threat, and make sure that we are protecting working people, low-income people, and the most vulnerable communities, not just giant corporations and Wall Street.

  • Tell WALMART to Provide Paid Sick Leave to Employees!
    I work at Walmart and working in an environment where there are ten of thousands of people a day who could very easily be sick and touching surfaces, coughing, etc. It isn’t fair for me to have to get sick to get paid leave. I have a wife and child like many of my coworkers do and we do not want to spread the virus it to our loved ones because we are forced to go to work or else be fired.

  • Close All Publix Super Markets, Curbside Pickup Only
    This company has enough resources to implement a system of minimal interaction at all stores, keeping its customers and employees safe. With the number of employees at each store, keeping up with the demand for a curbside pickup will be manageable via the Instacart system. If not, taking orders by phone and then brought out to the customer should be implemented. This keeps employees working, and keeps food in the homes of the communities we serve.
