  • 1% Of Defense to Education Petition
    That is the premise of this movement which seeks to take 1% of the budgets of various departments to support projects and initiatives targeting areas of society which are lacking including education, high education, social services, mental health, homelessness, etc. The targeted departments should be those which are highly funded and yet can survive with a minimal cut of no more than 1%. These departments should be so funded that %1 or a penny on the dollar shouldn’t cripple or adversely affect them (i.e. defense, foreign aid, entitlements, drug enforcement, etc).

  • Give our returning service women and men jobs
    Our service men and women are coming home to a very tight job market. These are proven workers; they follow direction well; they're young and strong and very capable. We owe them respect and opportunity.They should be offered jobs restoring our country's infrastructure. This could be part of their service or part of a program sponsored and paid for with grants to private companies hiring our veterans.

  • Disabled Veterans Need Our Help
    For the last 4 years disabled veterans have not seen one penny of a raise in an economy where the cost of living had obvious to everyone except the powers that be, gone up. This year, Congress had decided to give a 3% raise to all disabled veterans. However, in an effort to keep money for themselves, the raise was reduced to .96%. That means a 40% disabled veteran only got a 19 dollar raise. Why did the even bother? This is the thanks our government gives us for serving.

  • Matching empty homes with homeless families
    I live next door to a home that has been abandoned for several years. My church serves meals to homeless people who sleep in their cars or outdoors. There should be a program to cover utilities and food and help them take care of the house till they can get their feet under them again and the house can be sold.

  • Save In Home Support Services in California
    In Home Supportive Services for California Residents. All California Residents are affected by the mandatory 20% reduction in hours...both the providers, usually family or close relatives and the recipients who need the services that provide necessary help. This program is designed to help individuals with disabilities to stay in their home and out of skilled nursing facilities or assisted living homes by providing minimal payments which make it possible to save thousands of dollars per client...e.g. the maximum program hours are 230 /onth at $9.00/hr X 12 months = $24,220 (gross) vs. $7000/month X 12 months = $84,000. A savings of 59,780 per recipient. The vast majority of individuals only receive 80 hours per month.

  • Do not cut Medicare, Medicaid or Social Security
    We, the ordinary people of this country have paid in to these programs all our working lives. It is ridiculous to think the Republicans in Congress want to cut these programs without taxing the wealthiest Americans one penny more!

  • Do Not Approve NYU's Massive Proposed 20 Year Expansion Plan in the Village
    New York University wants to build an additional 2.5 million square feet of space – the equivalent of the Empire State Building! – in the blocks south of Washington Square Park. They need the City to overturn zoning protections, open space requirements, and urban renewal agreements, and give away public land used as parks, in order to do so. There are better alternatives for NYC, like the Financial District, which is accessible to other NYU hubs and where such growth would be contextual and welcome.
