  • Don’t Silence Doctors from Speaking Out on Patients’ Suffering as a Result of Abortion Bans
    The net effect of such practices is to make medical staff fear for their jobs and careers and intimidate them into silence, so as to hide the tremendous suffering, health damage, and heartbreak that abortion bans are inflicting on people. The CNN report describes the many ways hospitals and university medical centers use to silence doctors and medical staff and downplay the suffering caused by abortion bans. Some hospitals block or hinder media requests to interview their doctors and researchers on the topic. Others police social media posts about abortion—a university medical center’s lawyer insisted a group of residents in obstetrics and gynecology take down their Instagram post that said, “Abortion is healthcare,” even though many medical professional groups such as the American Academy of Pediatrics and American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists have used the exact same phrase. Even when hospitals have allowed their doctors to speak publicly, these employers insist that the physicians do not disclose where they work and make clear they would prefer that the doctors not speak at all. Will you support doctors speaking up for reproductive health and justice by signing the petition now?

  • Break the Media Blackout of Iranian Protests
    In Iran, women, queer folks, and primarily young Iranians are leading protests against the repressive regime—risking their safety and in some cases already losing their lives. It's an inspirational uprising for freedom and bodily autonomy that deserve global attention, solidarity and support. However, most Americans don't even know it's happening. The Iranian authorities have imposed a media blackout. Tragically, through their lack of coverage, major U.S. media outlets are perpetuating a media blackout of their own. If you scan newspaper headlines or track what's covered on 24 hour cables news and the network evening news shows, you'll find very little coverage of Iran—and no mentions in many outlets. When they do have a segment or interview, it often gets the story wrong—such as the New York Times emphasizing economic pressures and erasing the feminist spark at the center of this action and the protest cries for bodily autonomy and of "down with dictators." And news segments all-too-often turn to white Americans of European descent instead of voices of the Iranian diaspora or the voices that are emerging from Iran itself. What the brave Iranians who are protesting—again, mostly women, young people, and queer Iranians—need is to have their voices, stories, and images shared again and again. The U.S. media can play an important role giving more coverage, airtime, and online prominence to these protesters and to this uprising, which will engage more Americans and help turn more global attention on to this historic series of events.

  • Implement a "No Shame Dress Code" at STHS
    The current dress code perpetuates sexism, mental illness and an environment that does not support the learning of all students. The dress code sexualizes and objectifies the female student body and is demeaning to the male student body. Without change, this will continue to negatively impact our current and future student body.

  • Menstruation & Adverse Educational Impacts in Nigeria
    Tangible challenges such as inadequate materials, lack of access to sanitation products and inadequate facilities, coupled with psychological challenges such as the lack of menarche education, fear and cultural stigmatization put secondary school girls and menstruating youth in Nigeria at a disproportionate risk for adverse educational impacts and other negative outcomes.

  • Tell President Joe Biden: Don't nominate anti-abortion extremists to the courts!
    In the aftermath of the Supreme Court's outrageous and harmful ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade, President Joe Biden has reportedly caved to a demand by Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to appoint an anti-abortion extremist to a lifetime appointment on the federal bench. The federal judges below the Supreme Court are the only ones protecting reproductive rights at this point, and we can't afford even one new anti-abortion jurist on the bench. We cannot imagine a more out-of-touch move at this moment. Women overwhelmingly backed Biden over Trump in his bid for the presidency, and now he is taking our votes for granted and using us as bargaining chips. Let's take a look at the record of Chad Meredith, the Kentucky attorney Biden is considering awarding a lifetime position: Meredith has devoted much of his career to defending abortion restrictions in the Bluegrass State, including a controversial law on the books that requires doctors offering abortions to conduct fetal ultrasounds while playing audio of the heartbeat and giving vivid descriptions of the image. Meredith is also a member of the radically conservative Federalist Society, which also counts in its rolls anti-Roe Supreme Court Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett. The fact that Senator Mitch McConnell wants Meredith on the federal court bench is all we need to know about Meredith's fitness for the job. We are a resolute NO on this appointment. Tell President Biden he must not consider Chad Meredith or any anti-abortion extremist for our courts!

  • Demand Amazon stop donating to anti-abortion politicians
    Amazon and the rest of corporate America want to reap the benefits of appearing pro-reproductive rights without actually having to stop their donations to candidates actively passing abortion bans. Companies across various industries—from AT&T and Disney to Amazon—have donated to Republicans and extremists for years including Republican governors who are now signing abortion bans into law. Amazon released a statement that “team members should get the care they need" and have offered to reimburse their staff for travel. But that’s simply not enough to combat an issue they’ve contributed to. Amazon has the opportunity to actually support their staff, by ending all donations to Republican and right-wing extremist candidates that will support abortion bans and limit worker’s rights across the country.
