• Televise Trump's Criminal Trials
    Donald Trump and his cronies spread endless lies and misinformation following the 2020 election, which led to the deadly insurrection on January 6. Trump stopped at nothing to try to overturn the 2020 election results and overthrow our government. He is dangerous. He will keep lying to hold on to power, which is why it is important that we, the public, get the transparency that we deserve. Sign this petition to call on the Judicial Conference to approve televising the trials of Donald Trump. Doing so will give all of us the opportunity to see how justice works in our country and can go a long way toward combating the rampant rumors and conspiracy theories that would otherwise be flooding the airwaves and internet. Donald Trump and his allies will attempt to call these trials politically motivated or an abuse of power, but the American people deserve to hear the truth in court themselves. Once again, we urge you to approve televising these historic trials.

  • Remove Trump, the multi-indicted candidate, from the Republican presidential debate!
    Trump has been indicted on two federal charges—most recently for hatching a conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election results and, previously, for stealing classified documents and refusing to return them to the government when requested. He’s also been charged on the state level for violating campaign finance laws and sending hush money payments to Stormy Daniels to silence her, and more state charges are imminent. And any day now he will be charged in Georgia for 2020 election interference. Additionally, a recent jury trial found him liable for sexual assault. Trump is not above the law. Allowing the thrice-indicted Trump to participate in the first Republican debate would give him legitimacy that he does not deserve or have. Trump must be held accountable for all of the crimes he’s committed against the American people. Trump has used his legal woes to rake in tens of millions of dollars from donors, much of which he is using in self-serving ways that fly in the face of campaign finance laws. He is conning donors and voters and has made clear he will continue to break the law. MAGA Republicans continue to threaten our freedoms at every chance they get and are willing to hold on to power for themselves by any means necessary. To maintain any credibility as a legitimate national party, the Republican National Committee should not give credence to the idea that Donald Trump is a legitimate candidate.

  • Pennsylvania Needs an Aggressive Climate Action Plan
    As the climate crisis intensifies, so too will the impacts to all of Pennsylvania's communities, but especially to those that have been suffering disproportionately at the hands of polluting industries for generations. In fact, experts like Pennsylvania's Dr. Michael Mann have been warning us for years that conditions will only get worse, that there is no "new normal." And since what happens in Pennsylvania doesn't stay in Pennsylvania, our outsized contribution to the crisis will impact everyone. Nothing is going to improve without aggressive action by our state government. Nothing is going to make state government act without pressure from all of us.

  • Put people over greed and give writers and actors a fair contract!
    A common misconception is that writers and actors are all super rich, but it couldn’t be further from the truth, which is that 95% of the 160,000 actors with the Screen Actors Guild (SAG-AFTRA) make less than $25,000 per year, and they need to make $26,000 a year to even qualify for health insurance. And not to mention that the top studio executive made 384 times the average writer the past five years. The reality is that the massive wealth inequality that we see between the ultra wealthy and everyday working people is reflected in the entertainment industry too. Streaming companies make BILLIONS of dollars in corporate profits each year, pay top executives hundreds of millions of dollars combined, while giving writers and actors the short end of the stick. This cannot continue, and this is why actors and writers are on strike. And 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 and actors 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. Writers and actors simply want a fair contract, and together, we can make that happen. Sign the petition to tell ultrawealthy entertainment executives to put people over corporate greed and give writers and actors a fair contract NOW!

  • Expel Marjorie T. Greene From The U.S. Congress
    Marjorie Taylor Greene has been associated with several conspiracy theories in the past. It's important to note that she has distanced herself from some of these theories or claimed that her views have evolved. Here are a few examples: 1. QAnon: Greene has expressed support for the QAnon conspiracy theory, which alleges a secret plot against President Trump by a deep state of pedophiles and Satan-worshipping elites. She has since distanced herself from QAnon and stated that she no longer believes in it. 2. 9/11 Conspiracy Theories: In social media posts, Greene has suggested that the 9/11 attacks were an inside job and that evidence supports controlled demolitions of the World Trade Center buildings. 3. False Flag Shootings: Greene has commented that mass shootings, such as the Parkland school shooting and the Las Vegas shooting, were staged or false flag operations. 4. Jewish Space Laser: In a Facebook post, Greene endorsed a conspiracy theory that blamed wildfires in California on a Jewish-controlled space laser. She has since disputed this theory and called it a mistake. 5. Pizzagate: Greene has liked and shared social media posts about the Pizzagate conspiracy theory, falsely claiming that high-ranking Democrats were involved in a child sex trafficking ring operating out of a Washington, D.C. pizzeria. 6. Deep State: Greene has frequently used the term "deep state" to refer to a secret network of government officials and bureaucrats working to undermine President Trump and his administration. 7. COVID-19 Conspiracy Theories: Greene has expressed skepticism about the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, questioned the effectiveness of masks, and suggested that the virus may have been intentionally released. 8. Recorded Revenge Impeachments motions. It's important to note that experts and mainstream media outlets have widely debunked these conspiracy theories. Greene's association with these theories has drawn criticism and controversy.

  • Don't let Biden deport a Black Mauritanian man to slavery!
    I.S. and his family know what awaits him if he's deported to Mauritania—retaliation, torture, and possibly death. He was recently transferred to the ICE jail in Prairieland. We fear his deportation is imminent. Biden and Mayorkas have the power to save I.S. and grant TPS for Mauritania, as well as to release the more than 100 Mauritanian refugees locked up in Adelanto. Let them know we want them to use this power today! Read "'Guilty until proven innocent'? Advocates say Black immigrants face racial bias," Columbus Dispatch, 7/13/23, https://www.dispatch.com/story/news/politics/2023/07/13/guilty-until-proven-innocent-advocates-say-immigration-court-is-racist-black-african-immigrants/69629480007/ and "Letter to ICE Urging Release of Mauritanian Asylum Seekers," 7/19/23, https://www.aclu.org/documents/letter-to-ice-urging-release-of-mauritanian-asylum-seekers.

  • End Minocqua's War on Beer
    Wisconsin is arguably only 1 out of 3 swing states left in America (Georgia and Arizona are the other two). Biden won by 20K votes out of 5 million people in 2020, and those votes were almost overturned by a corrupt right-wing Wisconsin Supreme Court, and a sleight of fraudulent Republican electors. Since the January 6th insurrection, The Minocqua Brewing Company has become a strong progressive voice in the reddest part of the state, and has spent over $1.2M to protect Wisconsin's democracy. We helped Elect Governor Tony Evers and helped elect a 4-3 progressive majority on Wisconsin's Supreme Court, ensuring that Wisconsin's democracy would not fall in the 2024 presidential election. Statewide Republicans are doing everything they can to cancel our company, and are now trying to do it through targeted and abusive zoning regulations. Winning this battle will show progressives in red areas that they too can stand up to corruption and MAGA extremism.

  • Urge OSHA to Implement Immediate Heat Standards
    The summer heat will soon be here and farm workers and other outdoor workers desperately need a federal heat standard. The need is more urgent than ever, with the way the government has shifted to the right. In Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis just signed a bill which bans local ordinances giving workers water and shade breaks. It also bans local governments from requiring that employers conduct heat- exposure training programs. It takes away protections for employees who report heat exposure issues and removes record-keeping requirements. The new law takes effect July 1. Texas - already first in work-related heat exposure deaths - passed a similar law last summer. The “Death Star Bill” limits local governments from establishing ordinances for mandatory water and shade breaks for outdoor workers. These state bills are examples of why all farm workers and outdoor workers desperately need federal heat protections. Heat risk is real. Climate change is happening and outdoor workers are more and more in danger every year. Extreme temperatures could make thousands of workers seriously ill – and even suffer heat stroke and die. Farm workers are as much as 35 times more likely to die from heat than any other civilian occupation. Only a handful of states – California, Oregon and Washington – have policies on farm work in extreme heat. This lack of regulations puts farm workers in an impossible situation where they are forced to choose between making a living and taking care of their health. Currently, OSHA is relying on the "general duty" clause that says the general duty of an employer is to provide safe working conditions. That's not enough. Instead, workers need enforceable protections and penalties – including criminal proceedings – so dangerous incidents never happen. The men, women and children working in our fields can't wait. A Department of Labor committee recommended OSHA pass permanent rules, but this can take years. Workers need immediate heat standards to be put in place – before more people die. Heat deaths are preventable tragedies. The prevention is nothing complicated: shade, cool water, rest, education and monitoring. Sign our petition today and demand OSHA enact immediate heat regulations!

  • Reject Grayson County's Anti-Abortion Ordinance!
    The Board of Supervisors in Grayson County, Virginia is under attack by Evangelical Christian churches seeking to ban abortion care. We can't let that happen. The Virginia Constitution and Virginia Act for Religious Freedom firmly declare that religious extremism has no place in politics. Abortion is still legal in Virginia, and Grayson County does not have the power to countermand state law. This local ordinance was drafted by the FEDERALIST SOCIETY and TEXAS RIGHT TO LIFE for the purpose of sowing division and confusion for people seeking abortion care in rural southwest Virginia – the last central access point in the South for reproductive healthcare. Please join us in asking the Board of Supervisors to reject this harmful ordinance.
