• Rename Donald J. Trump State Park
    The name "Donald J. Trump" on a state park is a constant reminder of a presidency stained by controversy and division. The former president's involvement in inciting the insurrection at the Capitol on January 6 and his subsequent impeachment tarnished the dignity of the office. We deserve a park name that reflects unity, progress, and inclusivity. Donald Trump donated the land in 2006 with the promise that it would bear his name, but times have changed. With criminal charges against him, it's clear that honoring his name is no longer appropriate. Renaming the park is an opportunity to send a powerful message about our values and the kind of future we want to create. We need a park name that represents the best of our community and embraces the principles of democracy, justice, and respect for all. Sign this petition to support the renaming of Trump Park and usher in a new beginning that we can all be proud of!

  • Induct Sinéad O'Connor into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame!
    Sinéad O’Connor released 10 studio albums and her contributions to musical excellence with albums like "The Lion and the Cobra" and "I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got" are undeniable. Chart toppers like “Nothing Compares 2 U” continue to have cultural and musical relevance decades later. Additionally, her prominence as a political activist challenging the entertainment industry has made her an icon ahead of her time, spurring films like "Nothing Compares" and countless pop culture references. A rising musician in the 1990s, Sinéad O’Connor was blacklisted by the industry for her outspoken political activism against sexual abuse, war, and nationalism. She passed away on July 26, 2023 at the young age of 56. She deserved recognition for her integrity as a musician and an artist while she was alive, and she deserves it now. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame lacks gender diversity, with only around 60 of its over 700+ inductees women. That’s less than 9%. It’s time more women take their rightful place in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. We can’t allow the bias and discrimination that prevented Sinéad O’Connor from being celebrated in the '90s to continue block her place in history. Demand that Sinéad O’Connor be nominated and voted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as soon as possible!

  • Pennsylvania Needs an Aggressive Climate Action Plan
    As the climate crisis intensifies, so too will the impacts to all of Pennsylvania's communities, but especially to those that have been suffering disproportionately at the hands of polluting industries for generations. In fact, experts like Pennsylvania's Dr. Michael Mann have been warning us for years that conditions will only get worse, that there is no "new normal." And since what happens in Pennsylvania doesn't stay in Pennsylvania, our outsized contribution to the crisis will impact everyone. Nothing is going to improve without aggressive action by our state government. Nothing is going to make state government act without pressure from all of us.

  • Put people over greed and give writers and actors a fair contract!
    A common misconception is that writers and actors are all super rich, but it couldn’t be further from the truth, which is that 95% of the 160,000 actors with the Screen Actors Guild (SAG-AFTRA) make less than $25,000 per year, and they need to make $26,000 a year to even qualify for health insurance. And not to mention that the top studio executive made 384 times the average writer the past five years. The reality is that the massive wealth inequality that we see between the ultra wealthy and everyday working people is reflected in the entertainment industry too. Streaming companies make BILLIONS of dollars in corporate profits each year, pay top executives hundreds of millions of dollars combined, while giving writers and actors the short end of the stick. This cannot continue, and this is why actors and writers are on strike. And the impact of the companies' greed is not just causing harm to these workers, it is limiting the stories that come from the communities we need to hear from most. As the industry’s business model becomes unsustainable for emerging writers and actors there will potentially be fewer stories penned by historically marginalized communities. The lack of representation impacts us all—and it’s especially jarring given right-wing attacks on sharing diverse stories in classrooms and libraries. It also just means the range of TV shows we get to see will be worse. It's pretty clear that writers and creators should be fairly compensated to ensure creative talent of all backgrounds can contribute to the quality content we all love. Writers and actors simply want a fair contract, and together, we can make that happen. Sign the petition to tell ultrawealthy entertainment executives to put people over corporate greed and give writers and actors a fair contract NOW!

  • Expel Marjorie T. Greene From The U.S. Congress
    Marjorie Taylor Greene has been associated with several conspiracy theories in the past. It's important to note that she has distanced herself from some of these theories or claimed that her views have evolved. Here are a few examples: 1. QAnon: Greene has expressed support for the QAnon conspiracy theory, which alleges a secret plot against President Trump by a deep state of pedophiles and Satan-worshipping elites. She has since distanced herself from QAnon and stated that she no longer believes in it. 2. 9/11 Conspiracy Theories: In social media posts, Greene has suggested that the 9/11 attacks were an inside job and that evidence supports controlled demolitions of the World Trade Center buildings. 3. False Flag Shootings: Greene has commented that mass shootings, such as the Parkland school shooting and the Las Vegas shooting, were staged or false flag operations. 4. Jewish Space Laser: In a Facebook post, Greene endorsed a conspiracy theory that blamed wildfires in California on a Jewish-controlled space laser. She has since disputed this theory and called it a mistake. 5. Pizzagate: Greene has liked and shared social media posts about the Pizzagate conspiracy theory, falsely claiming that high-ranking Democrats were involved in a child sex trafficking ring operating out of a Washington, D.C. pizzeria. 6. Deep State: Greene has frequently used the term "deep state" to refer to a secret network of government officials and bureaucrats working to undermine President Trump and his administration. 7. COVID-19 Conspiracy Theories: Greene has expressed skepticism about the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, questioned the effectiveness of masks, and suggested that the virus may have been intentionally released. 8. Recorded Revenge Impeachments motions. It's important to note that experts and mainstream media outlets have widely debunked these conspiracy theories. Greene's association with these theories has drawn criticism and controversy.

  • Workers Can’t Wait: Implement heat safety protections now!
    2023 is on track to be one of the hottest years on the record, and construction and other outdoor workers are continuing to do essential labor amid historic heat waves. Unfortunately extremists like Texas Gov. Greg Abbott aligned with corporate special interests to take away workers’ rights and eliminate local ordinances that mandate common sense heat safety standards like water breaks. Since 2011 there have been over 430+ preventable worker deaths due to environmental heat exposure, and in places like Texas incidents are on the rise. Instead of protecting workers, the Texas legislature and Gov. Abbott are doing the opposite, passing legislation to overrule city policies enacted in Austin and Dallas mandating water breaks for construction workers. This sets a dangerous precedent and will have a serious and deadly impact on workers who rely on common sense safety standards in the face of consistently rising global temperatures. Enough is enough. As we work comprehensively to address the climate crisis, we need to establish heat safety protections NOW to keep workers safe. Fight back! Tell the Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to pass immediate and permanent heat safety measures!

  • Don't let Biden deport a Black Mauritanian man to slavery!
    I.S. and his family know what awaits him if he's deported to Mauritania—retaliation, torture, and possibly death. He was recently transferred to the ICE jail in Prairieland. We fear his deportation is imminent. Biden and Mayorkas have the power to save I.S. and grant TPS for Mauritania, as well as to release the more than 100 Mauritanian refugees locked up in Adelanto. Let them know we want them to use this power today! Read "'Guilty until proven innocent'? Advocates say Black immigrants face racial bias," Columbus Dispatch, 7/13/23, https://www.dispatch.com/story/news/politics/2023/07/13/guilty-until-proven-innocent-advocates-say-immigration-court-is-racist-black-african-immigrants/69629480007/ and "Letter to ICE Urging Release of Mauritanian Asylum Seekers," 7/19/23, https://www.aclu.org/documents/letter-to-ice-urging-release-of-mauritanian-asylum-seekers.

  • Stop talking about Barbie and do your job—or get out of Congress!
    In the midst of multiple social, political, and environmental crises, Sen. Cruz and other conservative members of the GOP have decided to use their platform to oppose…the new Barbie movie. Sen. Ted Cruz called it “Chinese communist propaganda” due to a crudely drawn map briefly shown in the film, and Rep. Matt Gaetz's finacee called for a boycott of the film. While we recognize the impact that glib and careless representations of geography can have within larger historical and sociopolitical contexts, let's be clear: A man whose actions contributed to a violent insurrection isn't concerned about geopolitics or democracy. We suspect Sen. Cruz and MAGA Republicans just don't like a movie that actually passes the Bechdel test and where a Black woman was elected president. Sign the petition to let Sen. Cruz and MAGA Republicans know that they are no more welcome in Barbie Land than they are in Congress!

  • End Minocqua's War on Beer
    Wisconsin is arguably only 1 out of 3 swing states left in America (Georgia and Arizona are the other two). Biden won by 20K votes out of 5 million people in 2020, and those votes were almost overturned by a corrupt right-wing Wisconsin Supreme Court, and a sleight of fraudulent Republican electors. Since the January 6th insurrection, The Minocqua Brewing Company has become a strong progressive voice in the reddest part of the state, and has spent over $1.2M to protect Wisconsin's democracy. We helped Elect Governor Tony Evers and helped elect a 4-3 progressive majority on Wisconsin's Supreme Court, ensuring that Wisconsin's democracy would not fall in the 2024 presidential election. Statewide Republicans are doing everything they can to cancel our company, and are now trying to do it through targeted and abusive zoning regulations. Winning this battle will show progressives in red areas that they too can stand up to corruption and MAGA extremism.
