• Prevent Banned Books: New York City Department of Education
    The current push for book bans is the strongest that its been in decades, with attempts to stop students from learning about the Holocaust, slavery, gender and sexuality, and more. Schools should allow a curriculum that educates students on our collective histories and allows them to learn about resilience and empathy. School environments should be inclusive to all students and give them the opportunity to read stories that reflect their interests and identities. Students, teachers, and communities across the country are frustrated about these right-wing attempts to censor schools, but we are not powerless, similar campaigns have been successful in stopping and overturning these bans.

  • Save Florida Solar industry
    It is important to have as many voice be heard about the Florida Light and Power screwing over the people of Florida with rate hikes and taking away solar business and jobs in our state. With Florida Light and power having a hand in writing the SB 1024 bill the utility company is essentially stealing power from owners of solar panel systems. The company will take the power and sell it back to consumers without having to pay for the electricity generated by our systems that have been paid for out of our own pockets.

  • We need diplomacy and de-escalation with Russia!
    The possibility of war in Ukraine is terrifying. Tens of thousands of deaths estimated in the first few days of fighting. Massive economic warfare with the potential to trigger a global economic meltdown. And, in the worst case scenario: Russia and the United States stumbling into a nuclear war with nearly unimaginable consequences. In moments like this it’s easy to feel helpless, especially when everywhere you turn Washington’s war caucus is seemingly chomping at the bit for war. But that’s where we come in. In the days ahead, as President Biden is debating his next steps, we need to make sure that the loudest voices he hears are a deafening demand for continued diplomacy and de-escalation.

  • Congress must publicly support diplomacy with Iran!
    Now that a diplomatic breakthrough with Iran is on the horizon, the war hawks in Washington are working overtime to sabotage this deal before it's even announced. In fact, as soon as word of an imminent deal got around, the powerful chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Senator Bob Menendez, took to the chamber floor to trash the negotiations and call for a continuation of Trump's failed "maximum pressure" policy. Senator Menendez isn't just wrong, he’s dangerous: his words and actions undermine U.S. diplomats who are still in the middle of negotiations and put us on a path to war. But right now, he and other hawks are testing to see how far they can push us away from diplomacy and peace. What happens in the next twenty four hours is CRUCIAL — if we show up, and are loud — we can not only get hawks to step back, but we also strengthen the resolve of members of Congress who are waiting to see what the consensus is. That’s why we’ve got to call on every member of Congress right now to support diplomacy.

  • Abolish Abusive Conservatorships
    Prior to the enactment of any law, we call on legislators to center the voices of those who have been gravely harmed and maligned by conservatorships. The scope of the harms caused by conservatorships is unknown, as conservators often have an unfettered ability by which to control conservatees and stifle their freedom of expression. Fundamentally, conservatorships are the “civil death” of our citizens, whereby legal proxies can control every aspect of an individual’s life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. This requires legislation that will hold abusers accountable for the harms they have perpetrated against conservatees, as well as develop fundamental changes to the conservatorship/guardianship system so that their only purpose is collaborative and supportive care. Ms. Spears never requested to be the only spokesperson for the reimagining of our legal system; for 13 years, she has been denied the ability to just speak for herself . While Ms. Spears is a solo artist, she is not alone in this exponentially growing movement to end conservatorship abuse. There can be no “Oops” when the rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution are being repeatedly violated and it should never happen to anyone ever again.

  • Abolish the Electoral College
    As young adults, we're years away from entering the voting booth. Not just in Presidential elections, but congressional, local, and other community races. The Electoral College was established in 1787 and is not fit for a 21st century world. The American people should be responsible for selecting the President, not appointed Electors working for a system that isn't representative of the beliefs and votes of America. It's time to create a national popular vote in the United States!
