• Inauguration: Make it Virtual, Low Key or Both
    Our first priority should be keeping everyone as safe as possible, from Covid and from expected violence. Secondly, most Americans believe that expending our human and monetary resources for this event is inappropriate and distasteful in light of what we have been through. We did it beautifully for the convention, why not now? Holding a traditional ceremony is not what the American people want or need.

  • Demand the US Senate initiate Impeachment Trial of Trump Immediately, prior to his leaving office
    Trump's crimes against the United States, inciting sedition, insurrection and violence against federal elected officials is so anathema to our Republic that the only response is full repudiation by conviction of impeachment as well as precluding Trump from ever running for President again.

  • Del. Dave LaRock needs to resign or be removed!
    On January 5th, 2021, Delegate LaRock sent Vice President Pence a letter on formal House of Delegate letterhead, asking for nullification of Virginia's electoral votes. Repeating the lies of electoral fraud, which we know there was none, LaRock attempted to disenfranchise millions of voters in VA simply because he didn't like the outcome. To be clear, high Black voter turnout is NOT voter fraud. By LaRock's own admission he has no proof to offer of electoral fraud (because there is none), this is a dangerous precedent LaRock is trying to set while also hoping to score political points as this is an election year for the House of Delegates. https://www.wric.com/news/politics/three-gop-virginia-delegates-sign-letter-asking-vp-pence-to-nullify-the-states-certified-election-results/ On January 6th, 2021, the day our US Capitol was attacked by domestic terrorists, LaRock voiced his support once again for overturning a free and fair election because as he says "he stands loyal to the President". He participated in the protest, called for his supporters to participate as well and when Trump supporters committed acts of sedition, LaRock attempted to spread more disinformation by blaming the left and antifa instead of where the blame belongs, with Donald Trump and his enablers like Delegate LaRock. This type of disinformation campaign is dangerous to our democracy and a thinly veiled attempt to silence the votes of Black voters. https://loudounnow.com/2021/01/11/larock-faces-calls-for-resignation-after-capitol-riot/ LaRock has faced numerous calls for his resignation including from the Loudon NAACP. In response to the calls for him to resign, LaRock sent a fundraising email in which he wrote: "Rather than focusing on the business of Loudoun County and the needs of the colored community, they are wasting their time and taxpayer resources to attack me.” https://www.washingtonian.com/2021/01/13/virginia-state-representative-says-critics-should-focus-on-colored-community-instead/ Words have power, and we should all have the expectation that our elected officials would choose theirs wisely and responsibly. Due to the harmful and overtly racist actions and words, we must all demand the resignation of Delegate Dave LaRock. Should he refuse to resign, we must then demand that he be removed from the House of Delegates.

  • Enough ! De-fund Congressmen who subvert democracy
    Lawmakers who knowingly spread falsehoods about the election, and then vote to undermine our democracy, must pay a price. Companies must recognize this and choose their campaign donations accordingly. We must pressure them to do so. As our congressional leaders weigh steps against Trump and members of congress who deliberately undermined our elections, let us force them to do the right thing by stopping the flow of corporate money: Enough is enough! As we go past Trump and into Biden's term, maintain the pressure: Enough is enough! As we move to the next election cycle, keep up the pressure: Enough is enough! Turn off the money spigots. Now.

  • Remove Michigan Legislators Who Participated in the Deadly Insurrection and Racial Parity
    We the undersigned citizens of Michigan, object to the double standard of "discipline", between white Republicans and black Democratic legislators. We support this petition to hold insurrectionist accountable. HISTORY: Republican leaders claim their members who participated in the insurrection cannot be removed from committees, appointments or their jobs. This cannot happen. In December 2020, State Representative Cynthia A. Johnson, a black woman and Democrat, received thousands of death threats, including lynching, from Republican supporters just for speaking the truth. She was further attacked by Republican leaders, and "disciplined" for exercising her right to freely speak. She was removed from her committees, without due process. Those culpable for violence, promoting anti-democratic fallacies and plans to overthrow our government, should not be on tax-payer payrolls. Representative Johnson, must be made whole and any adverse actions, past, present or future nullified.

  • 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.

  • Do not permit Trump's photo to be hung in the White House
    As a mom I believe that my job is to lead by example in my words and actions. It is our civic duty to hold our leaders accountable for their actions. I do not believe that the 45th President deserves any place of honor or special recognition for the reason that he has divided this nation and incited insurrection.

  • Encourage Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski to leave the Republican Party
    Because she has called for Trump’s resignation and is a liberal Republican who has questioned her being in the party on multiple occasions. She said that if the Republican Party is the party of Trump, that party isn’t for her. We should encourage her to be at least an independent.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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
