  • Gov. Quinn: Revive the Illinois Torture Commission!
    Numerous Chicago Torture victims remain in prison! Most Chicagoans and many people around the world know about the brutal acts of torture perpetrated by police officers for decades under the command of Jon Burge. Hundreds of young black men -- many mere teenagers at the time of their arrests and torture -- were forced into confessing to crimes and imprisoned for decades. While millions of tax dollars have been spent to defend the torturers, many victimized by Burge and others are still in prison with no recourse other than the potential for freedom and justice which the Illinois Torture Inquiry and Relief Commission can provide. History is repeating itself as our officials refuse to prioritize this issue or the victims/survivors, so the Commission is being virtually dismantled due to reduced funding and failure to appoint commissioners for vacant seats. Governor Quinn and legislators have a chance to reverse the budget cuts in their new budget. Call on them to fully fund and staff the Torture Commission - now!

  • Boycott FL
    Florida is not a safe place to take your family for vacation as long as Florida law permits a citizen to shoot or kill you for merely looking suspicious, and to do it with impunity. Boycott Florida tourism until this dangerous law is overturned. If the murder of Trayvon Martin isn't enough to get lawmaker's attention, maybe a loss in revenue to the state would be.

  • Justice for Trayvon Martin
    Seventeen-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed while walking home from a convenience store on the evening of February 26. The shooter, George Zimmerman, was the neighborhood watch captain. Zimmerman, a 200-pound 28-year-old with a history of violence, claimed self defense, even though Trayvon Martin had no criminal history and nothing more than candy and an iced tea in his hands

  • Boycott Florida Tourism
    The original petition to boycott Florida tourism was posted more than a year ago, when there was intense debate going on about Stand Your Ground, because George Zimmerman had not been arrested in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. That trial has ended, and no petition in the world will bring Trayvon back to his grieving parents. This petition is about repealing Stand Your Ground in Florida (and in turn all other states that have it) because the law is flawed and dangerous.

  • Justice for Rhonda McClain
    Rhonda Desha McClain was planning on leaving her boyfriend, an Apple Valley physician's assistant, on March 11, 2011. Texts messages found in her phone confirmed this. She had plans of furthering her education and building a life for herself and her six-year-old daughter, Savannah. But Rhonda would never be given the opportunity to fulfill those dreams, because on March 7, 2011 (just four days before her plans were to be set into motion), she drowned in a bathtub at her boyfriend's home. An autopsy would later show that Rhonda had no underlying health problems and no drugs or alcohol in her system, yet she seemingly drowned in a shallow bathtub. The facts speak for themselves!
