• There is no room in Congress for a misogynistic sexual predator like Gaetz. He must resign, NOW!
    Gaetz has gone far to evade accountability for the things he’s done, so far that he sought a preemptive pardon for himself and other members of Congress for any crimes they committed, and though he didn’t get it, the investigation on him began under the Trump administration’s Department of Justice that was led by Bill Barr at the time, who abused his power by acting as Trump’s personal lawyer and covering up his many crimes. Gaetz’s predatory behavior is not new: While he was a member of the Florida House of Representatives, he showed other lawmakers nude photos of women that he claimed he slept with, he created a game to score “sexual conquests” that gave points for targets like interns, staffers, or other women colleagues, and he voted against a bill aimed at preventing people from sharing explicit photos of their ex-partners online. Gaetz, like his idol Trump, is a sexual predator. Not to mention that in 2020, Gaetz spewed baseless lies about the legitimacy of the election, which subsequently incited the storming of the Capitol by white supremacists, which he then called a false-flag operation by the left. Then, he and the GOP Treason Caucus refused to hold Trump accountable for obstruction of justice in the first impeachment trial, objected to certifying the 2020 election results, and even refused to hold Trump accountable for inciting a deadly insurrection in the second impeachment trial. Now, Rep. Gaetz is under federal investigation for sexual misconduct and sex trafficking a child. There is no room in Congress for a misogynistic sexual predator like him. That’s why we must take action to demand that Matt Gaetz resign from Congress, NOW!

  • CNN, time to leave Georgia. No to state legislated voting discrimination.
    A state political party should be sent a very clear message that abusing government power to suppress votes will not be tolerated by businesses because supporting unethical state legislatures economically funds corrupt government and it will not and should not be tolerated. The legislatures and ELECTED representatives should be held responsible for driving businesses out of state. Businesses should only support states economically that support democracy not actively suppress it. Because that is what is truly at stake.

  • Congressman Sexual Misconduct: Censure & Resignation - Rep Tom Reed
    There are zero excuses for sexual misconduct and sexual assault. That Reed is in a position of power as an elected U.S. Congressman, makes his actions even more abhorrent. As if to imply he’s been punished enough by being publicly exposed, Reed stated he will serve out his present term with a promise not to run for Congress again. He also said he will not run for Governor of NYS in 2022, despite his previously stated ambition to do so. (Reed stated in 2012 that he would only serve 10 years, thus, he had already told voters he would not run in 2022.) Congressman Reed, himself, seems to think he can set the terms of how he will be held accountable for his egregious--and possibly criminal--behavior. That is not how accountability works and there must be serious consequences when both a private and public trust has been so violated. Tom Reed should be censured by the House and should resign now.

  • U.S. Senate: After Atlanta, fight racism and gun violence and pass universal background checks!
    The Atlanta mass shooting that resulted in the death of eight people -- six of whom were Asian American women -- again proves that Americans can no longer wait for action against gun violence and hate. In 2020 alone, as though the pandemic weren't already too much to bear, gun violence rose dramatically with over 19,000 people killed in shootings and firearm-related incidents. Tragically, who is harmed by gun violence has long been determined by race, ethnicity, or gender. Asian American women -- and everyone -- deserve to feel safe. While we mourn the Atlanta shootings, we must also fight the explosive combination of guns, racism, and misogyny to reduce the likelihood of such tragedies ever happening again. The U.S. House recently passed gun legislation to tighten up background checks on gun sales, and now it’s up to the U.S. Senate to turn it into law. Tell the U.S. Senate to act against gun violence now and pass universal background checks.

  • Girls dress code for all schools
    Girls are always treated like objects and it’s not ok if we show some skin then it’s wrong but then we get ISS if and have to cover in duck tape too it’s not ok girls populate this world and all we get in return is these stupidly high expectation standards and ofc we get punished when we do anything that isn’t in these expectations girls are already objectified enough and we deserve more respect for everything we all have to go through and I know for a fact that half of the adults now tried to wear stuff kinda like how we do today and then we’re told they couldn’t and then got mad don’t let y’all’s past control our lives are y’all wearing what we chose to wear no we wear what we are comfortable in and what we chose so don’t go making us be something we aren’t girls all over are being punished for wearing something and for expressing them selves it’s not ok for how girls are treated some girls can get away with wearing skirts and shorts and anything else showing skin but half the other girls get punished for it is ridiculous for how higher these standards are for girls! I could go on and on and on about the whole dress code situation but I wanna get at least maybe 100 or 200 signs from other girls who agree ever from any other schools it can be honestly any women who agrees with me and my school cause this isn’t ok! More people can sign if they want to but honestly I just want people who agree to sign!

  • CALL TO RESIGN: North Idaho College Board Trustee Banducci
    We would like to address some specific actions of Chair Banducci that were brought to light by Trustee Wood’s letter to the board on Jan. 18, 2021, that was made public on Jan. 20, 2021, and by an email sent by President MacLennan to the NIC board on Jan. 18, both of which were reported on by the CDA Press on Jan. 20, 2021. Trustee Ken Howard has publicly acknowledged the accuracy of these events as reported by Trustee Wood and President MacLennan. These actions were confirmed in college emails obtained through a public records request. Of particular concern is Chair Banducci’s treatment of women. He has twice threatened to physically assault Trustee Wood. In another incident, he shouted at and assumed a threatening posture over Trustee Judy Meyer. He verbally and physically assaulted a female employee, resulting in an investigation. As a result of this investigation, Mr. Banducci was censured by the board and signed a settlement with the employee agreeing to have no contact with her. Another employee filed a Title IV complaint against Mr. Banducci charging him with sexual harassment. She dropped the complaint being too fearful to move forward with it. In addition to being morally reprehensible, these actions create a huge liability for the college. Of further concern is Chair Banducci’s questioning of an NIC employee about a financial contribution made to the campaign of Dr. Joe Dunlap, who was running for the NIC Board. This is a clear attempt to intimidate an employee, and is a violation of the employee’s civil rights as well as a violation of NIC’s Political Activities Policy 3.02.11, which protects the rights of its employees to participate in civic life as private citizens. Chair Banducci has overstepped his role with students as well. In 2014, Trustee Banducci’s behavior at public board meetings deeply disturbed ASNIC President Benaiah Cheevers. During his report, President Cheevers called for greater civility and specifically addressed Trustee Banducci’s treatment of Faculty Assembly Chair Michelle Lippert and Vice President for Community Relations and Marketing Mark Browning. Trustee Banducci berated Benaiah and called him an “indoctrinated pawn.” Recently, Trustee Banducci attempted to constrain the free speech rights of students. Chair Banducci appears to believe that his role is to force a particular ideology onto the college. In an email to a student, he wrote that he was “battling the NIC deep state” and taking on the “liberal progressives.” Again, this type of statement creates a huge legal liability for the college. A dismissed employee could now sue NIC, stating that they had been fired because of their political belief. As reported by President MacLennan and evidenced in emails, Chair Banducci has recently attempted to usurp the power of the board. According to Idaho law, individual board members have no power, as the board can only act collectively. Mr. Banducci has sent numerous emails to President MacLennan demanding specific actions that can only be directed by the board as a whole. Recently, Chair Banducci and other board members have violated open meeting laws by conducting board business via email. For these reasons, we call on Trustee Todd Banducci to resign his position with North Idaho College. https://cdapress.com/news/2021/feb/06/women-join-call-nic-chair-resign/ https://www.krem.com/article/news/local/north-idaho-college-trustee-calls-for-chair-to-resign/293-dc875712-2ac4-4a78-81a1-33d4d48b304f https://www.insidehighered.com/quicktakes/2021/01/26/board-chair-asked-resign-over-alleged-abusive-behavior UPDATE 3/15/2021 “It’s not a smear campaign, if it’s the truth.” ~ Trustee Christie Wood https://www.chronicle.com/article/a-county-turns-against-its-community-college

  • President Biden: Take Action for Immigrant Rights!
    We, the Minnesota Immigrant Rights Action Committee, call on President Biden to take action for immigrant rights. We will hold President Biden accountable to the immigrant rights reforms he already promised AND also demand that he works to demilitarize the border and provide legalization for all. We have not forgotten the three million people who were deported under the Obama-Biden administration. Justice today does not only look like reversing anti-immigrant policies but actively seeks to repair the harm that has already been done to countless families. MIRAC will continue to push for legalization for all and an end to the whole system that profits from the mass-incarceration and the mass-deportation of immigrants, and also from the superexploitation of the labor of immigrants who live under constant fear of deportation. Please sign our petition to tell President Joe Biden to meet these demands! If you would like to get involved with MIRAC, please provide your email here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1uUMnByB-S6JGMOd7q9wgyavae_5sXwQEcpsbTOKFOgk/edit

  • Voice your disagreement to have Abby Johnson speak at a Catholic University event.
    This is extremely important because we do not want to send out the wrong message to members on our campus or elsewhere, nor do we want to give a platform to someone who has explicitly expressed views contrary to our call to respect the dignity and life of all people. While she may have a unique testimony to becoming an anti-abortion activist, Abby Johnson, in recent videos and Twitter posts, has expressed beliefs and values that do not embody the Church's or Catholic University's consistent life ethic, including egregiously racist remarks and arguments.

  • Harriet Tubman Day
    This is so important because we need to honor her hard work. First, she was passionate about freedom and rights for all Black people. Next, she didn’t back down no matter how hard it got. Finally, she was strong and caring even when she went to freedom herself, she risked her life to get other enslaved people back to freedom too. We also think it would be great to put a statue of Harriet Tubman in Lake Eola Park, but we know that might be expensive so only if you can. I think that our City of Orlando should make Harriet Tubman day because we are a City where all that work that we believe in needs to be celebrated.

  • Recall Natalie J. Cline, Utah State School Board Representative, District 11
    Ms. Cline promotes discriminatory and unethical rhetoric to the public and fights to promote her rhetoric within District 11’s School Board of Education. She has made posts on her official Facebook page that call for her members in District 11 to support xenophobia, racism, homophobia, and cultural regression. She violates USBE’s Educational Equity Program both Title IV and Title IX as well as Resolution No. 2021-01. Additionally, she violates Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. Why Cline needs to be recalled from office: ✔️ She believes that Critical Race Theory is harmful and should not be taught in schools. (Violation of Resolution No. 2021-01 and Title IV.) ✔️She promotes unconscious bias as wrong and believes that it should not be taught in schools. (Violation of Resolution No. 2021-01 and Title IV.) ✔️ She advocates for traditional literature be taught in schools, specifically targeting LGBTQIA+ literature as harmful. (Violation of Title IX.) ✔️ She connects government, public education, and religion as one through a post stating that school children—and people—should follow “The Golden Rule.” Additionally, she refers families to a website whose mission is “to cooperate with the Holy Spirit in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with as many people as possible by nurturing and defending the God-ordained institution of the family and promoting biblical truths worldwide.” (Violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.) ✔️ She accuses teachers who participated in Utah’s Pride Center’s conference of indoctrinating young children to LGBTQIA+ causes (Violation of Title IX.) ✔️She promotes discrimination of transgender students by providing resources that explain why parents should be concerned. (Violation of Title IX.) Please sign this petition to recall Board Member Cline from her position, so Utah teachers can continue promoting acceptance, love, and support of all children from all backgrounds, genders, races, and religions. Recall her so parents will know that their child is safe and accepted in all public Utah schools. Recall her so all Utah children can attend schools that foster their educational journey of becoming highly educated, well-rounded adults who felt acceptance, love, and inclusion throughout their educational experience. Please contact the Utah State Legislature: https://le.utah.gov/Documents/find.htm Contact Cline’s district’s representatives: Rep. Miles of District 11: kmiles@le.utah.gov Rep. McCay of District 11: dmccay@le.utah.gov We need to demand a resignation. The Utah State School Board “has no legal authority regarding the removal or maintenance of any state board member’s seat. The only methods of removal are impeachment pursuant to Utah Code 77-5-1, resignation of the seat before the fulfillment of a four year term, or through the regular election process when a board member’s term has ended.” View the evidence of her sharing her rhetoric: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/e/2PACX-1vSxyZnodcQfjB84PPj6_d5tt0Fi7pyX2LOVuFPyjG2QNTupvuk0RpnVXkXYuphwS6Jv6KUI9mGy_10b/pub?start=false&loop=false&delayms=3000 Check out more of her rhetoric on her Facebook website: https://www.facebook.com/NatalieJCline/
