• Raise the legal age to buy a gun to 25
    Think back to when you were 18, 19, even 21, did you have need for a automatic rifle? Or even a handgun? So, why would we sell guns to 18 year olds? With no training, little background info, and zero questioning, we let a child buy weapons that kill. Are you comfortable with this? Please help raise this ridiculous legal age limit to something other than 18.

  • Homeless Bill of Rights for Wausau, Wisconsin
    Wausau is just one of the cities in America that lacks adequate affordable housing and shelter space. Wausau is just another city that does not have enough mental health providers, AODA providers, or CRISIS beds for those in need. We are just another community with citizens performing life-sustaining activities, such as sleeping under our bridges or holding a sign that reads "will work for food" outside our Kwiktrip. Wausau is just another society with unhoused citizens. But Wausau is so much stronger than many cities in America. Wausau can stop homelessness. Wausau wants to be the model city for others to follow. Wausau has thousands of humanitarians that are already making a huge difference and we want to keep going. We are figuring out what works. We provide access to treatment, access to housing, access to basic needs, and this works. We create spaces where unhoused citizens can ask for help without judgement and guess what, it works! We are making a difference. Please help by signing this petition. We want to ensure that our unhoused citizens maintain their right to employment and resources essential for their survival and path to recovery. We want to use the method that works.

  • Women & Infants Hospital, bring back your fired healthcare workers!
    Healthcare workers were deemed heroes throughout the pandemic and now they’re losing their jobs and livelihoods over an employer mandated medical procedure that violates their religious beliefs.

  • Tell the SEC to Hold Massive Baby Formula Companies Accountable
    What does financial regulation have to do with the baby formula crisis? More than you might think. Just four companies sell almost all baby formula in the United States: Abbott, Reckitt Benckiser, Nestle, and Perrigo. This concentration in the industry leaves the supply chain vulnerable. Abbott Laboratories, a $35 billion conglomerate, is under fire for manufacturing baby formula in dirty facilities that caused two babies to die of a bacterial infection and made at least two others sick. Now, one of the biggest factories in the country is closed while regulators work to ensure it’s free of contamination, which means desperate parents are driving hours just to find formula. How did this crisis happen? One reason is that regulators let Abbott Laboratories buy back more than $5 billion of its own stock while it covered up unsanitary conditions in its factory. Instead of making sure their product was safe, Abbott’s executives lied to safety inspectors while spending corporate cash on pumping up its stock price. Before 1980, corporations were outlawed from buying back their own stock — and there’s no good reason regulators shouldn’t outlaw it again. This year, the biggest corporations are expected to spend a record $1 trillion on stock buybacks, shattering records and showering cash on shareholders — instead of investing it in product safety, innovation, or workers. The baby formula crisis should be the last straw. It’s sickening that Abbott would buy back stock instead of keeping babies safe. Chair Gary Gensler at the Securities and Exchange Commission has the authority to slam the brakes on corporate buybacks. Chair Gensler is doing good work to rein in financial wrongdoing, but needs to hear from us that this is important. Please help us send a message to Chair Gensler that corporate stock buybacks are bad for everyone but the CEOs and executives they enrich.

  • Ryan Smiths Resignation From Hopatcong Council
    If we do not start to stand up against this type of behavior, it will continue the culture that we live in an area that breeds hate. If you look at comments on the many local articles, you will see a common trend that people outside our area think of our town as racist and bigoted. We are fully aware that we are far from it, and the words of one do not reflect the ideology of the majority of us.

  • End Religion In Government
    If we are to be a country of religious freedom, then we need to be a country free from religious influence in our laws and government. For no one who lives under laws created by religious influence and zealotry has freedom of religion, only freedom to be subjugated under a singular religion.

  • Susan Collins, if you're REALLY pro-choice, support the Women’s Health Protection Act
    Earlier this week, a leaked draft opinion suggested that the Supreme Court could overturn Roe v. Wade. My senator, Susan Collins (R), claims to support abortion rights, even stating she “supports the right to an abortion and believes that the protections in the Roe and Casey decisions should be passed into law” (nbcnews.com, Dec. 2021) but at every single turn, has voted for people that could ultimately contribute to the downfall of Roe v. Wade. During his 2017 confirmation under then President Donald Trump, Justice Gorsuch referred to Roe as precedent, “worthy of treatment as precedent, like any other.” In 2018, Collins supported Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh’s controversial nomination because she believed that he would uphold Roe v. Wade as the law of the land and legal precedent. When we reached out to her about our concerns she not only ignored our voices but accused us of being paid lobbyists from out of state. She refused to listen to her own constituents. Now, despite hearing about this leaked draft and what it could mean for millions of people, Susan Collins is refusing to support the Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA). Can my Senator continue to call herself pro-choice if all of her actions indicate otherwise?

  • #DefendRoe
    If the Roe v. Wade decision is overturned it will cost the abortion right a woman has in which abortion will be made illegal in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Kentucky, Tennessee, Utah, Idaho, South dakota, North Dakota, and Missouri and under potencial ban in Montana, Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Florida. Any Trans men, Women, Non-Binary folks with a uterus, and Lower Class Women will be affected by this decision, along with anyone who identifies as a women. Not to mention, globally, in 2015-2019 121 million unintended pregnancies occur each year in which 61% ended in an abortion or 73 million a year. However, in the past 30 years the number of pregnancies being terminated through abortion has risen by 14%. (https://www.guttmacher.org/fact-sheet/induced-abortion-worldwide) I urge you to not remain a bystander and participate in the movements against this decision.

  • Protect Roe. Don't Deny Families Abortion Access!
    The Supreme Court has drafted an opinion overturning Roe v. Wade, the historic Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal across the United States. If this ruling is issued it will take private health care decisions out of the hands of families' and their medical providers and instead give politicians power over our bodies. According to the Guttmacher Institute, 59% of people seeking abortions already had one birth, and 75% of patients had income below the federal poverty level or are considered low-income. Attacks on reproductive healthcare have already made abortion practically inaccessible to millions of families. If the draft opinion becomes official, millions more, particularly low-income people and people of color, will lose access to important reproductive health care, have the ability to decide their own future taken away, and be left to the mercy of local politicians. Safe, legal abortion is health care that millions of families need. Restricting or eliminating access to abortion not only negatively impacts the personal and financial life of an individual parent, but that of their family as well. This is NOT a done deal. Congress can still act to protect everyone’s right to safe, legal abortion. The Women’s Health Protection Act would protect a person’s ability to determine whether to continue or end a pregnancy, and to protect a health care provider’s ability to provide reproductive healthcare. Let Congress know that you support reproductive freedom for all by demanding that they pass the Women's Health Protection Act into law.

  • Expand and protect abortion access at all costs!
    Health care is a human right. Abortion is healthcare and abortion is still LEGAL. While Roe v. Wade is still the law of the land, we recognize now is the time for urgency and education on what resources are available for people if they need to safely self-manage an abortion at home. For more than 20 years medical advances have come forward to revolutionize how people experience abortion. We’re aggressive proponents of people being able to have an abortion on their own terms—without interference from the government, whether they seek that care from a provider at a clinic or self-manage at home. Right now, anti-abortion politicians are impeding progress by trying to prevent any one from being able to have a safe, effective and affordable abortion. But we cannot let people in power continue to ban abortions and criminalize people who exercise their right to choose.

Abortion-by-mail can significantly reduce the harm done by right-wing, anti-choice legislation, but people need to know there are other avenues. Acquiring and using pills may carry legal risk, especially for marginalized people, you can check if it's legal in your state here: https://abortiononourownterms.org/self-managed-abortion/ If the right-wing justices in the Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade, we need to be ready to educate people on how to self-manage abortion safely. Any one who chooses this option to end their pregnancy should be able to do so safely, effectively, privately – on their own terms. It’s crucial that we create a world where every person is free from stigma and shame, and protect access to safe abortion for all.

  • We The People!!
    I implore all Americans to stand up, be heard & do something to help better your life & the lives of all those around you! If we don’t speak up NOW, there will never be change… We have the power to change the world, right the wrongs, unlock the chains of injustice & demand a better quality of life! Change starts with you! Your voice matters! You CAN make a difference! Stand with me in pleading… no, DEMANDING more from our government! We demand more assistance to climb our way out of poverty! We demand our government to respect & hear the people! We demand a better quality of life for our children! And lastly, we demand action from our government! If change doesn’t happen NOW, I fear those people who feel frustrated & unheard will begin to revolt. We do NOT need a revolution, we need a resolution… When parents go hungry so their children do not, you know there is something inherently wrong with the system. When the people are scared to seek medical help because of the outrageously high costs, there is something inherently wrong with the system. When a parent has to choose between working just to pay daycare or staying home to raise their children and not being able to pay rent, there is something inherently wrong with the system. We are not asking for a handout, we are asking for a leg up! I implore you to take these words seriously. For if you don’t, the people may rise up to seek justice themselves. We will no longer stand by and go unheard and unseen. We will shout from the rooftops until change happens! I will stand up for what is right, even if I have to stand alone…

  • Prioritize Parents in the California Budget!
    As the world continues to deal with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, parents around the state are sending out an S.O.S. to Save Our Selves, Save Our System, and Save Our State. Time is of the essence as child care family fee waivers expire June 30, 2022 if the Governor and Legislature fail to act. Child care providers continue to close due to low reimbursement rates and hundreds of thousands of families are still stuck on the waiting list for child care. To realize the Governor’s January budget proposal to expand subsidized child care by an additional 36,000 slots, parents called for increased wages for providers and waiving family fees through September 2024. Mientras nuestro mundo sigue tratando con el impacto de la pandemia de COVID-19, padres alrededor del estado están mandando un “S.O.S.” para Salvar a Nosotros Mismo, Salvar Nuestro Sistema, y Salvar Nuestro Estado. No podemos demorar así que la exención de pagos por cuidado de niño se vence el 30 de junio de 2022 si el Gobernador y la Legislatura no toman acción. Proveedores de cuidado de niño siguen cerrando por causa de una taza de reembolso demasiado baja. Cientos de miles de familias están varados en la lista de espera de cuidado de nino. Para realizar la propuesta del Gobernador para añadir 36,000 espacios nuevos de cuidado de niño, padres están pidiendo un aumento de sueldo para proveedores, y una extensión de la exención de pagos familiares hasta el 30 de septiembre de 2024.
