• Instagram, Snapchat and TikTok: Stop Showing Abortion Disinformation Ads to Teens
    These organizations aggressively lie to teens in their most vulnerable moments – telling them abortion is dangerous, that ultrasounds or other procedures are required when they aren’t, and that local clinics don’t have appointments available when they do. This creates a significant public health risk. Some experts estimate abortion bans will increase maternal mortality in women and girls of color by 33%, the same population most likely to see abortion services from a deceitful center. By profiting from these centers’ advertisements, TikTok, Instagram, and Snapchat are spreading misinformation about critical health issues to vulnerable kids.

  • San Antonio Must Consider an Abortion Protection Act
    The right to an abortion has been proven to lower the risk of death and injury. San Antonio must be dedicated to protecting the safety of its people. San Antonio must continue to honor the rights of pregnant people to bodily autonomy and private medical decisions.

  • END THE HYDE AMENDMENT BLOCK ON ABORTION FUNDING
    This amendment bars the use of federal funds for abortion healthcare. This means that medicaid recipients, service members, and young people who are most dependant on federally-funded health services cannot access abortion services through their healthcare plan and are left to find the money and resources to seek out this procedure on their own. For many people, this is equivalent to an abortion ban. This amendment unfairly targets our most vulnerable citizens. Abortion healthcare and bodily autonomy should be a human right, not a luxury that only the privileged can afford. We believe all pregnant people deserve access to abortion healcare regardless of their financial status, and demand that this amendment be excluded from the next federal budget.

  • Protect Abortion Access in Kansas by Executive Order
    On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) abused their power and overturned Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision that declared a federal constitutional right to an abortion, despite recent polls that suggest 85% of American voters believe the procedure should be legal in some or all circumstances. (Source: https://news.gallup.com/poll/1576/abortion.aspx ) As of June 28, 2022, there are 13 states that have enacted trigger bans—bans or laws that were prepared well before the decision was made on June 24, 2022 that would further restrict or ban altogether the constitutional right to abortion. These states include Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Missouri, with Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt signing the state's trigger ban law only minutes after the SCOTUS decision, which prohibits most abortions, even in the cases of rape or incest. The full text of the AG opinion letter can be found here: https://ago.mo.gov/docs/default-source/press-releases/22-2022.pdf?sfvrsn=39ffd2d_2 It does not stop there—for a person seeking the procedure, Missouri is the worst place to be in the country right now. Since the trigger ban went into effect, more far-right Republican lawmakers are introducing planned provisions to the law that are extreme and ludicrous. Rep. Mary Elizabeth Coleman, a member of the Missouri House of Representatives from the 97th District, representing parts of Jefferson and St. Louis Counties, has put forth a provision that copies the legal strategy behind the Texas law that would allow private citizens to sue "anyone who helps a Missouri resident obtain an abortion out of State."

  • Gov Polis, Act now to make Colorado an abortion sanctuary
    Polis has said that the Dobbs "Ruling doesn’t change anything in Colorado," So no action will be taken outside the regular legislative session. BUT OUR STATE IS ABOUT TO BECOME THE NEAREST SOURCE OF ABORTION SERVICES FOR AN ADDITIONAL 1.2 MILLION WOMEN AND OTHERS OF CHILD-BEARINGAGE FROM OTHER STATES. WE MUST urgently prepare to meet the increased need for abortion services in Colorado and give protection to all those receiving, aiding & providing abortions!

  • "The People's Mandate" (includes abolishing the filibuster and codifying Roe)
    This is important because the people of the United States cannot allow a currently undemocratic institution like the Supreme Court to make incredibly dangerous population-wide decisions which go against facts, logic, and the will of the people.

  • Increase Mental Health Benefits for Medicare Recipients
    With 2.9% of every company's earnings contributing to the SSA, I am urging the decision-makers to consider the welfare of such a diverse community of citizens who are so in need of a hope to hold on to. By making one small step for man, we can rest assured that addressing this issue head-on is the most important leap for mankind during this prevailing crisis. By increasing policies to aid the crisis itself, I believe that taking action will create a domino effect in which others will want to be apart of. It is not too late to make a difference, sign this petition to propel this initiative forward and enact change in our country today.

  • End Coors' sponsorship of Denver Pride
    Pride was not created to be a party. It was civil unrest to fight against police brutality and to celebrate who we are and fight for equality and justice. This cannot happen when organizers of pride are in bed with a corporation who funds campaigns to turn the clock back on our fight for equality. The Center on Colfax must end oors' sponsorship of Pride today. Pride was, and always should be, a grassroots movement.

  • 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.
