• Investigate the killing of journalists in Gaza NOW!
    The IDF has a pattern of targeting and killing Palestinian journalists, according to media rights groups. Add your name to call for an independent investigation into the killing of journalists in Gaza. Media reports from Gaza are one of the few ways information comes out of the strip, with restrictions on media in place by the IDF and limited or no internet and phone access in Gaza. Meanwhile, Palestinian journalists share that they are having to choose between dying with their loved ones or reporting the news from a human catastrophe unprecedented in modern history. Netanyahu’s siege of Gaza is already the deadliest period for journalists since the Committee to Protect Journalists began collecting data in 1992. More than 79 journalists have been killed in Gaza, 72 of whom were Palestinian. By one estimate, 1 out of every 10 journalists in Gaza has been killed, making it the single-biggest death toll for journalists in a conflict zone in years. Media and human rights organizations are calling for an independent investigation into the targeting of journalists in Gaza. Reporters without Borders has filed multiple war crimes complaints with the International Criminal Court (ICC) regarding the deaths of journalists in Gaza. In a CPJ report, titled "Deadly Pattern," the media rights group concluded that a "routine sequence" occurs when a journalist is killed by the IDF. Despite all evidence, the CPJ reported that “no one has ever been charged or held accountable for these deaths.” Journalists must be protected. Their coverage and reporting from inaccessible and often ignored places are one of the only ways to reveal the truth in an otherwise contentious or controlled narrative.

  • Supreme Court Justice Thomas, recuse yourself from all Trump and January 6 insurrection cases!
    Trump's claim that presidential immunity should prevent the federal suit on election interference will be decided by the Supreme Court this summer. Oral arguments are scheduled for April 25. It's clear that the Supreme Court will play a central role in this year's presidential election at a time when the public holds the historically lowest opinion of the Court's integrity. For the Supreme Court to consider these cases with any impartiality, it's critical that justices with conflicts of interest recuse themselves. That applies first and foremost to Justice Clarence Thomas, whose own wife played a role in Trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 elections. From secret gifts from right-wing donors to weighing in on cases that his wife is connected to, Thomas has a longstanding history of conflicts of interest. It’s crucial that we raise the pressure now and demand that Justice Thomas recuse himself from this case immediately! He has refused to recuse in the past, and we can't let that happen again. Justice Clarence Thomas must recuse himself from any case regarding January 6 and Trump’s eligibility to be on the ballot NOW. Photo credit: Tasos Katopodis, Getty Images

  • Support Senator Bernie Sanders' Call for an Investigation of Indiscriminate Bombing in Gaza
    Alarming reports have surfaced that U.S. bombs and artillery are being used in Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s war to indiscriminately kill Palestinians in Gaza. Nearly 70% of the more than 22,000 killed so far in Gaza are women and children, with many more missing in the rubble. More than 57,000 have been injured and at least 1.9 million displaced, making the catastrophe in Gaza an urgent and ongoing humanitarian crisis. The New York Times reported that "more children have been reported killed in this conflict than in all major global conflicts combined last year." Netanyahu's far-right government continues to reign bombs over Gaza, while news reports confirm that Netanyahu is bombing safe zones where Palestinians were told to evacuate. The U.N. and various humanitarian and human rights organizations increasingly share reports of human rights violations, as well as hundreds of aid and healthcare workers and journalists being killed by the bombings. Members of Congress are calling for the Biden administration to uphold U.S. law by not providing military aid to states using it to intentionally target civilians and violate human rights. Sen. Sanders has submitted a resolution calling for the U.S. to abide by its own laws and investigate reports of civilian bombings in Gaza to ensure that U.S. foreign aid is not used to intentionally violate human rights. Sign the petition now to call on your elected officials to support Sen. Sanders' call for an investigation immediately.

  • VACANT BUILDINGS TO BE USED FOR THE UNHOUSED
    Unhoused people are human and deserve all the same rights as a person that does have a space to live. If you want to have the downtown areas clean and sanitized. People need a shelter, a building, a place they feel safe that will provide them with the basic needs of a human being.

  • Convert empty offices into affordable housing for the homeless
    These vulnerable citizens - the homeless - are our brothers, sisters, cousins and more. How we treat them is a reflection of who we are. How can anyone stand by and do nothing? More, if you want to see this growing population shrink. If you want the tent towns and dilapidated vehicles to go away...these people need somewhere to go. Providing permanent housing will reduce the 'unsightly' camps. More, it has been proven in multiple countries around the world that giving someone a permanent roof over their heads often leads to a reduction in addictive behaviors, increase in capable workers joining the work force and a return to a healthier lifestyle. If you want to fix the problem of homelessness, then provide homes. And the support needed to keep them under their own roofs.

  • ITS TIME TO MAKE A CHANGE
    This is important because animals are dying, animals are being abused, animals are being neglected because there is no accountability on any level. The lack of responsible ownership is creating an environment where preventable and treatable disease is spreading throughout the state and animals are suffering because of it. We cannot euthanize, adopt, rescue our way out of this crises. This isn't an animal issue, it's a people issue and only we can change it.
