• Open the Abandoned Roosevelt Roads Naval Station for Rescue of Animals Suffering in the Streets
    Tourists do not enjoy seeing suffering animals on the streets everywhere on the island while they are vacationing.  The 2007 Massacre in Barceloneta where about 80 dogs were seized by government contractors and thrown off a 50-foot highway bridge in Barceloneta, Puerto Rico, gained the world's attention and led to a tourism boycott. Authorities estimated the subsequent losses at more than $15 million. The government continues with mass killings at "shelters" and deplorable standards for the protection and treatment animals. As Puerto Rico increases it's tourism exposure of the animal crisis on the island is also increased. There is potential for another boycott and the loss of many millions of dollars to the economy.

  • End corruption on the Supreme Court! Hold Clarence Thomas accountable.
    It seems that there’s no end to how many luxury vacations, shady payments, and lavish gifts Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has received. The Senate Judiciary Committee recently reported that Thomas took an additional 3 trips — including a yacht vacation in Indonesia — funded by billionaire GOP mega-donor Harlan Crow. Over two decades, Clarence Thomas has received over $4 million in gifts, much of which have been undisclosed like these trips with Crow. These GOP billionaire-funded gifts and the many scandals and conflicts of interest on the Court — between Thomas, Alito, and Roberts — cast serious doubt on the impartiality and ethical standards on SCOTUS. But Congress can hold Thomas accountable and finally end corruption on the Supreme Court, by passing the Supreme Court Ethics, Recusal and Transparency Act.. The list of Thomas’ corruption scandals is long and includes mysterious, unexplained business income, a web of conservative dark money benefitting him and his wife, failures to recuse himself from cases where he has clear conflicts of interest, and much more. Here’s how the New York Times put Thomas’ refusal to recuse himself from Trump’s immunity case it: “Justice Clarence Thomas, who participated in the case despite his wife [Ginni] Thomas’s own vigorous efforts to overturn the election.” Justice Alito also recently became enmeshed in a new corruption scandal when it was discovered that a Stop the Steal style flag was flying over his house in 2020. The flag flew as the Court considered whether or not to take on a critical election case in the days after the Capitol riots, just before President Biden was sworn in. The Supreme Court is supposed to be fair and independent, but conservative Justices’ corruption and ethics scandals are piling up. We need Congress to pass this bill to finally create a real, binding code of conduct for our federal courts. Sign the petition: Pass a Supreme Court Ethics Act to end corruption by Clarence Thomas and the other right-wing Justices on SCOTUS.

  • The Time is Here. The Time is Now.
    At the March 5th 2024 Council Meeting, the Council directed staff to remove all implications in the 6th Housing Element that the public lands at Sunset Center and Vista Lobos are now or will ever be committed to low income housing.  However, as the April deadline loomed along with the threat of “builder’s remedy” and loss of local control, the City decided to submit the document to the State on time without this change in policy.  The Element was then certified on time and the threat of non-compliance and State interference was alleviated.  However, unless we act now, the City remains legally committed to pursue low-income housing on those public lands or else fall out of certification and lose local control.   ​Fortunately, there is a solution.  The city may submit amendments to the existing Housing Element that substitute sites that are better for the village and better for its future residents.  The submission of alternatives for State consideration does not trigger decertification.  If the new site ideas are not accepted, they can be modified until they are.  But, if this work does not start quickly enough, the City will be obliged to develop the public sites instead.  ​We the undersigned request that the Carmel City Council immediately direct staff to pursue a housing element amendment that removes the three public sites before beginning work on any aspect of developing those sites.

  • President Biden: Permanently stop fossil fuel gas exports!
    The U.S. is the top exporter of largest liquefied “natural” gas exporter in the world. This “natural” gas is up to 95% of methane gas, a greenhouse gas that is 80 times more potent than carbon dioxide! People are dying from the pollution caused by these methane gas export facilities. Local residents call the region between Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Louisiana, where 200 fossil fuel plants operate, “Cancer Alley”. Areas of Cancer Alley have the highest risk of cancer from industrial air pollution in the country, in addition to higher rates of low birth weights, preterm births. Stopping these exports and the construction of more export facilities is also a racial justice issue; Black residents in Cancer Alley face higher rates of exposure to pollution than white residents. We need to phase out fossil fuels and invest in our clean energy future. The Biden administration has the power to end these dangerous gas exports permanently and to hold fossil fuel polluters accountable for the damage they are causing to our communities. We must uphold our global climate agreements and commitment to achieve a net-zero emissions economy by 2050 for our planet and its people. Add your name to the petition to urge President Biden to continue the fight against fossil fuels and for a clean energy future!

  • Act Now to Sound the Alarm on Nukes at the Presidential Debates!
    From China to Russia to the United States, we’re witnessing troubling moves to build nuclear weapons that push us all toward global catastrophe. Even a “small” nuclear war — where just three percent of the world’s current nuclear arsenal is deployed — would have apocalyptic effects. Millions would be killed on impact, followed by environmental destruction, famine, and more death in the fallout. There’s one thing we all deserve to know: How will the President of the United States respond in the face of this rising threat? President Joe Biden and Donald Trump could tell us how they’d act at their first debate later this month. The problem? We don’t know if CNN moderators Jake Tapper and Dana Bash will ask. That’s where you come in. We have just a narrow window of opportunity to urge the presidential debate moderators to pose a crucial question about nuclear weapons at the first Presidential Debate on June 27.  The good news is that they can’t ignore a call from tens of thousands of activists from across the country urging them to do it. Sign now if you agree: Debate moderators must ask President Biden and Donald Trump about any nuclear plans!

  • Call on Congress: Skip Israeli PM Netanyahu’s Speech!
    Right now, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continues to wage a devastating war in Gaza, while undermining diplomacy and ignoring calls and protests from thousands of Israelis, including hostages’ families, to accept a ceasefire that can end the violence, bring their loved ones home, and build true security. None of this is a one-off for PM Netanyahu, who has built a career on impunity and sabotaging peace processes. His current resume includes everything from domestic corruption charges to accusations of empowering Hamas to weaken a two-state solution. Despite all this, House Speaker Mike Johnson — with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries in tow — has officially invited PM Netanyahu to address a joint session of the U.S. Congress later this summer. No matter your politics, one thing is clear: Granting PM Netanyahu a congressional platform will come at the expense of peace. Nothing will change if leaders who continuously choose violence over peace are given huge megaphones and political cover, especially by the U.S. government. This speech is scheduled for July 24, and that’s why we’re working fast to pile on the pressure to urge members of Congress to RSVP ‘No’.

  • Save Parks & Recreation, Save Dog Church
    Let's keep our parks and recreations space for parks and recreation and the active use by our neighborhood and fellow Huntsvillians. Cemeteries fill up. It happens. I know that Maple Hill Cemetery is getting full if not nearly full already, but there are other cemeteries. Once we give up the recreation and pubic space we can never get it back.

  • Faith communities for IVF and reproductive freedom!
    Struggling with fertility is an incredibly personal, challenging, and complex issue for individuals and families. Every single person deserves access to a full range of reproductive health options in order to help them plan their families and future—including access to IVF. And they deserve to know that they are supported and cared for by their faith communities as well, without stigma or shame.  An overwhelming majority of people in America—70%—support IVF, and that includes people across faiths. For thousands of people every year, IVF provides a pathway to parenthood, as nearly 2% of all pregnancies in the U.S. are a result of this critical form of reproductive care.  Yet, that has not stopped a small but powerful minority of Christian-nationalist politicians from trying to restrict access to IVF on the state and federal level. Earlier this year, the Alabama Supreme Court banned IVF in the state by twisting Christian teachings to justify asserting legal rights and protections for fertilized eggs. Missouri’s abortion ban, passed two years ago, has put access to IVF in limbo. And just this week, Senate Republicans blocked a federal bill that would protect IVF. These far-right leaders frequently weaponize faith to justify these restrictions. But our faith communities are diverse, and how we choose to define, build, and nurture our families is as well. We’re tired of the one-sided, partisan story that is being told about our faiths in order to undermine and restrict reproductive freedom. People across faiths and denominations support IVF and urge leaders to protect access!
