• Move US Embassy Back to Tel Aviv
    The United Nations Resolution 194 states: "Resolves that, in view of its association with three world religions, the Jerusalem area, including the present municipality of Jerusalem plus the surrounding villages and towns, the most Eastern of which shall be Abu Dis; the most Southern, Bethlehem; the most Western, Ein Karim (including also the built-up area of Motsa); and the most Northern, Shu'fat, should be accorded special and separate treatment from the rest of Palestine and should be placed under effective United Nations control." The location of the US embassy in the vicinity of Jerusalem, violates UN mandate of special and separate treatment of Jerusalem and is a cause of distress to local people of Palestinian origin.

  • Resign Mike Lee
    For more than four years, Mike Lee has not only lacked the courage and the moral compass to denounce con man Trump’s reprehensible behavior, he’s aided and abetted Trump’s deception and domestic abuse of the American public by standing by instead of standing up.

  • 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.

  • Amazon Web Services - don't allow Parler to aid a possible attack on the USA
    As long as a large national platform like Parler is allowed to spread incendiary rhetoric, attacks on our government and country are likely.

  • Take the nuclear button away from Trump
    It is TERRIFYING that right now there is no check on Donald Trump’s power to launch nuclear weapons. It’s simple: if Donald Trump can’t be trusted with Twitter, he cannot be trusted with a nuclear arsenal that could end humanity as we know it. People created nuclear weapons and designed the systems governing their use — and people can work to limit and ultimately eliminate their use. Speaker Pelosi has already raised the alarm about Trump’s access to nuclear weapons with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs. Congress is primed to act, and a push from us could help make sure that they step in to take the nuclear button away from Trump and all future presidents.

  • Twitter: Maintain Official White House Accounts Followers
    Twitter Communications spokesperson Nick Pacilio, who describes himself as a “Shady son of a b****,” on his own Twitter profile, defied logic by announcing a complete wipe of Twitter followers to all official White House accounts at the close of Trump’s administration, offering no rationale for the unprecedented decision. Rob Flaherty, Digital Director for the Biden-Harris transition, tweeted: "In 2016, the Trump admin absorbed all of President Obama's Twitter followers on @POTUS and @WhiteHouse -- at Team 44's urging,". Flaherty went on to tweet, "In 2020, Twitter has informed us that as of right now the Biden administration will have to start from zero." While it is true that many Americans get their information from news sources, millions of people are informed only through their social media feeds. Twitter’s stance back in 2016 was that it was an account that automatically went with the president, no matter who held the office. These accounts are not permanently tied to a particular administration and the followers represent the Americans and people around the world who’s right it is to be informed about the activities and perspectives of the executive branch. The United States President is a public servant and therefore the official White House accounts are property of the American people. Twitters decision is an egregious disenfranchisement of 33.2 million people following the @POTUS and 26 million people following @WhiteHouse accounts, including millions of American citizens. This move by Twitter is destructive to democracy because it cripples and could even further shut down the exchange of information and ideas across political divides, bridging administrations. It encourages congeniality bias in our county. This selective exposure to algorithm curated information is poison to the principles advanced by our founding fathers and encourages the kind of vitriolic tribalism that has made deeper roots into our society. Stripping these official accounts of the millions of Americans following them indicates Twitter is willfully complicit in the continuation of the divisive political and social context which we are currently in because it disconnects people from their newly elected government officials. This action disadvantages and betrays Americans who signed up to a service thinking that they had control of their membership to view different feeds and sources of information, only to have a corporate entity exercise even greater control than ever before over what users are able to view and what not to view. This is a shameful betrayal of democratic ideas and we should loudly and unequivocally condemn this action by Jack Dorsey and mouthpiece Nick Palicio. Americans and Twitter users worldwide who support democracy and desire to see a country unified, should declare with one clear voice that we want these official accounts followers to be maintained and keep information flowing to all Americans.

  • Demand the Pentagon Resume Working with President-Elect Biden's Transition Team
    Federal officials recently discovered that the U.S. government was the target of one of the largest cyberattacks in history. The list is long: Treasury, Federal Reserve, Defense, State, Homeland Security, and Energy (which oversees nuclear weapons) have ALL been breached. The implications are staggering.  There’s one thing we know for sure: the incoming Biden administration MUST have the information about this hack and its potential effects if they are going to be able to face this and other challenges on Day 1.  But within days of announcing the breach, Acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller ordered a Pentagon-wide halt to cooperation with the Biden transition team, hamstringing their ability to understand and address a dangerous situation with far-reaching national security implications. This goes beyond politics and is simply unacceptable.  Sign now to demand that Acting Secretary Miller restart national security briefings with the Biden transition team immediately.

  • Tell the Biden COVID-19 task force: Vaccines must be free & accessible worldwide!
    Two U.S. companies — Pfizer and Moderna — have reported that their vaccines are 90%+ effective in providing immunity from COVID-19. This is groundbreaking, game-changing news for people here in the United States and all over the world — but only if everyone can access these treatments. NOW is the time to demand these treatments be free and accessible to EVERYONE. We have a tiny window to pressure President-elect Biden's COVID-19 task force to ensure PEOPLE come before PROFITS. A Biden administration must not only immediately rejoin the World Health Organization (WHO) — the United States has got to go further. Add your name now to urge President-elect Biden's COVID task force to support the global COVAX initiative AND ensure that any FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine is made COMPLETELY free and fully accessible to everyone, as quickly as possible.

  • Tell President-Elect Biden and Congress: Pledge to restore the Iran deal!
    Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was assassinated in broad daylight from a sudden, well-executed, technologically sophisticated ambush. A remote controlled machine gun mounted to a Nissan shot the scientist and then self-detonated. Trump spent the last 4 years fanning flames with Iran and now President-Elect Biden will inherit a powder keg with a short fuse. But there’s a way out of this. President-Elect Biden can restore the Iran deal that Trump broke apart in 2018. And now he needs to make that a priority. Sign the petition: Tell President-Elect Biden and Congress to pledge to restore the Iran deal! Under Obama, the Iran deal was a major step forward in easing tensions with Iran and protecting US interests. But just like with the Paris Climate Accord, Trump was eager to shred Obama’s legacy wherever he could. When the US pulled out of the Iran deal, they set the stage for this deeply disturbing, high tech assassination. If Iran retaliates, Trump could use the last few weeks in power to launch an offensive, and leave Biden to clean up not just a pandemic, a climate crisis, an immigration crisis at the border, but now a new war in the Middle East. Restoring the Iran deal needs to be a Day 1 priority for both the Biden administration and Congress now. If President-Elect Biden can double-down now on his campaign promise to bring back the Iran deal, tensions could soften, and we could stop Trump from permanently destroying US foreign policy on his way out of the White House. Sign the petition: Tell President-Elect Biden and Congress to pledge to restore the Iran deal! Source https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/28/world/middleeast/israel-iran-nuclear-deal.html

  • Rename the road in front of the Saudi Embassy to Khashoggi Way
    On October 2, 2018, Jamal Khashoggi, a Washington Post journalist and resident of the Washington DC Metropolitan Area, was murdered in the Consulate of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul, Turkey by agents of the Saudi government. The CIA has concluded that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered this assassination. Soon thereafter, activists in DC launched a petition to rename the Northbound portion of New Hampshire Avenue, adjacent to the Saudi Embassy after Mr. Khashoggi. Almost 10,000 people signed a petiton demanding it. However, that effort did not succeed because DC law prohibits naming any public space after a person unless they are deceased for at least two years. October 2, 2020, marked two years since the horrific murder of Jamal Khashoggi. It is now time to rename the street. Please sign this petition to DC Council and Mayor Muriel Bowser asking them to do so immediately.

  • Support Joaquín Castro for Chair of the House Foreign Relations Committee
    With a new president and a new Congress being sworn in just a few weeks, the U.S. has an opportunity to forge a new path when it comes to foreign policy as we begin moving beyond the damage done by Donald Trump. That's why it's crucial for Rep. Joaquín Castro to be elected Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee by his colleagues this month. As Chair, Rep. Castro will boldly advance a new vision for our nation's role in the world, centered around human rights and human dignity, justice, accountability, cooperation, and diplomacy. Members of Congress will be voting later this month on the new committee chairs, and it's important that you make your voice heard now.
