• Keep your promise. Stop funding insurrectionists like Ron Johnson!
    The world watched in horror as white supremacist Trump supporters violently attacked the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to overturn the results of our free and fair election. In the aftermath, General Motors was part of a wave of companies who suspended donations to election objectors, pledging to pause their political contributions and reevaluate their standards. But it turns out that GM has donated tens of thousands of dollars to re-elect lawmakers who voted to overturn the election, making them one of the top corporate donors to insurrectionists. Senator Ron Johnson is among them. Johnson is trying to rewrite history by lying and saying that January 6 was “by and large a peaceful protest.” It was not. Johnson has even gone so far as to vote to object to the election results, to acquit Donald Trump for inciting the insurrection, and to block a bipartisan commission to investigate the attack. General Motors paused their political donations to insurrectionists and then started up again when they thought no one was watching. Nothing has changed. Ron Johnson has still enabled attacks on our democracy and values corporate profits over his constituents. And he is one of the leading apologists in Congress trying to rewrite the history of the fatal insurrection of January 6. None of the lawmakers who voted to overthrow the American people's election should receive a single dollar more in donations. And Ron Johnson is particularly reprehensible. Throughout history, we've consistently seen white supremacy and right-wing groups go unchecked for the violence and terror they cause. We saw Donald Trump get both enabled and supported by Republicans for four years as he attacked our democracy over and over. Then, after inciting the insurrection, the Republican Party did nothing to hold Trump accountable. And that’s not all: Senate Republicans used the Jim Crow filibuster, a tool invented by pro-slavery senators before the Civil War that prevented the passage of over 200 anti-lynching bills over the years, to block a bipartisan commission that would have investigated this attack on our democracy. This is what General Motors’ donations are enabling. It’s unacceptable for them to backpedal on their promise to stop funding insurrectionists. Republicans like Ron Johnson consistently got in the way of providing much-needed relief to hurting Americans but magically found funds for the wealthy and corporations by passing a massive tax cut. They called the virus a hoax while hundreds of thousands of people died across the country. They packed the courts. They pushed through a Supreme Court justice in eight days, seven days before a presidential election. They incited an insurrection led by white nationalists. Johnson is more interested in spreading lies and conspiracy theories than in governing for the American people. He is one of the richest members of Congress who has consistently turned his back on his constituents when they needed him most, while looking out only for himself, special interests, and his bank account. After a briefing on the COVID-19 in January 2020, before many of us knew of the possibility of a pandemic, Johnson sold millions of dollars in stock to line his own pockets. He was the deciding vote on legislation that gave the ultra-rich and corporations a $1.7 trillion tax cut. Then, while hundreds of thousands of Americans died from COVID-19, millions were going hungry, and millions were unemployed and living paycheck to paycheck, he voted against COVID-19 relief and direct payment relief that would actually help people … twice. Enough is enough. The GOP Treason Caucus objected to the election results, refused to hold Trump accountable for inciting a deadly insurrection, helped him evade consequences, and blocked an investigation on the attack. General Motors, stop funding white supremacy, insurrection, misinformation, conspiracy theories, violence, and attacks on our democracy!

  • Jamaica Qns residents fight CM Miller for clean environment & NO waste increase. Kill Int 2349-A
    Our fight for a clean environment and clean air, must be heard. Pollutants from the local waste transfer stations on Douglas Ave. have caused asthma, cancer, and other health ailments in our community, and enough is enough. We have been neglected too many years by our elected officials in exchange for them getting funding from these waste stations in Jamaica, Queens. Waste stations “fund our NYC parks” and “help the community” while they get passes to pollute our community. We must fight against this environmental racism.

  • Expand Medicare Now!
    I am burdened by my health care costs. I am unable to afford basics, and I'm now facing expensive repairs to my home. As a senior, I feel forgotten by our current system. I feel like we are being punished for living because it is so difficult to live as a senior. I am a senior citizen in Rome, Georgia, living on a fixed income. Both my husband and I are on Medicare as well as a supplemental plan that we pay for monthly. Still, we have an out-of-pocket deductible we must meet before any of our insurance kicks in, which this year took three long months. Our prescriptions are a huge burden for us also. We are at the point where we are having to make either/or decisions with everyday items just to get by and afford our healthcare. I am urging congress to include expanded Medicare coverage and increase prescription access as part of the American Families Plan. Right now, Congress is debating if they should expand Medicare in the American Families Plan. Specifically, Congress must strengthen Medicare to include hearing, dental, and vision benefits, as well as an out-of-pocket cap; expand Medicare by lowering the eligibility age from 65 to as low as possible; and enable Medicare to negotiate lower prescription drug prices for everyone. These would not only benefit me, but nearly 38 million people would gain vision, dental, and hearing coverage, and more than 2 million uninsured would get access to quality, affordable health care. We have to use this chance to pass bold legislation while we have the majority. The clock is ticking! Please join me in urging Congress to do the right thing and expand Medicare coverage through reconciliation.

  • End cash bail in LA County!
    As you read this, millions of people across the country are being held in jail even though they haven’t been convicted with any crime. In the vast majority of states and counties, if people charged with a crime can’t afford to pay their bail, they’re forced to sit in jail until their trial date, which can take weeks, months, or sometimes even years. Pretrial detention often leads to all sorts of challenges for a jailed person, including job loss, housing loss, and, if they are a caretaker, complications with child or eldercare. And above all, cash bail leads to unequal treatment under the law, and this is a violation of our Constitution. Regardless of a person’s ability to post bail, they should be granted the same rights and presumption of innocence.

  • Restore Press Freedom!
    Today the entire mainstream media is owned by only FIVE corporations, all of which are run by people who are invested in weapons and war. The result is a media that always starts with a pro-interventionist position and is staffed by former intelligence officials and generals that protect the government narrative instead of the truth. Additionally, it is extremely rare for mainstream media outlets to have on opposing viewpoints, especially from the left, to have debates and discussions. We need a return to fairness, truth and civil debate.

    We depend on our local post office for many things. Businesses and publications need the post office. Rural post offices are very important to rural residents. There are many reasons people need the local post office. Louis DeJoy needs to be fired for sabotaging our USPS.

  • Support the only Women Of Color cannabis healing dispensary in Venice Beach!
    When one of the founding members of Cannabis Vision Partners discovered her mother had breast cancer there was no where she could take her mother to for a safe, knowledgeable and comfortable experience at a dispensary. This was 14 years ago. Today not much has changed. We now have "apple store" style dispensaries and not one but TWO MedMen dispensaries approved by LA city council to operate in Venice, but none of them cater to women's needs and none of them are owned by women and certainly not women of color. Women and particularly women of color are the most disadvantaged when it comes to healthcare and almost invisible when it comes to natural healing. The needs of women and women of color are not being met in health and in business. One of the fastest growing industries is cannabis and currently the community of Venice Beach is being dominated and monopolized by greedy male corporations- essentially keeping out any women and especially women of color. This is a healing industry and the need for women focused healing is being neglected and we need change. You can make a difference for all women of color who choose to heal themselves with natural medicine and not with addictive pharmaceuticals and for women who want to make a difference in their communities. It all starts with someone like you who cares about women's needs.

  • Justice For Hunter Brittain
    Hunter’s family and community have been denied this transparency. Hunter was 17-years-old. Hunter was a son. He was a brother. A nephew. An uncle. And a friend. Hunter was young, innocent and full of life before his life was cut short by this unjustified use of deadly force that is not captured on body mounted camera footage. This is unacceptable and must change.

  • Facebook: Stop advertising for seditious MyPillow Guy
    As a Facebook user, I was shocked to receive an advertisement for MyPillow on my Facebook feed. MyPillow's CEO, Mike Lindell, is a dangerous liar and conspiracy theorist. During Donald Trump's crusade to overturn his defeat in the 2020 election that resulted in a deadly insurrection led by white supremacists, the "MyPillow Guy" outdid even disgraced figures like Rudy Giuliani and Sydney Powell in trumpeting false information and lobbying Trump to turn the military on the American people. His lies were so bad that major retailers like Kohl's and Bed Bath and Beyond stopped selling MyPillow products. But Lindell has doubled down on his aggressive lies, and is now holding rallies at which he spouts the QAnon fiction that Trump will somehow be reinstated as president. Department of Homeland Security officials have told lawmakers that they expect this conspiracy theory to inflame the threat of extremist violence, just like the lies Trump and Lindell spread helped fuel the racist violence of January 6. These are the kinds of dangerous lies that got Trump booted from Facebook for violating its terms of service. Yet Facebook is still making money off of MyPillow's CEO, who has increased his online advertising as a result of being kicked out of retail stores. Enough is enough. It's time for Facebook to be consistent, and stop taking money from MyPillow, indirectly propping up and amplifying Lindell's conspiracy theories.
