  • Stay Remote & Save Lives! Illinois School District U-46 Paciencia NO pacientes!
    ~~~Español abajo At the beginning of the school year there was an agreement to close schools if the positivity rate reached a certain number. There is no limit now and we are the highest positivity rate since the pandemic started. This is a public health emergency for everyone: 1. Students being back in schools will continue to spread the virus contrary to Covid-19 prevention measures 2. U-46 is the second largest school district in the state of Illinois which translates into a super spreader situation if students go back to schools 3. Cleaning staff, bus drivers, support staff, teachers, nurses, their families and communities beyond Elgin are also being put at risk 4. We can wait a bit longer now that there is a vaccine and come back to school safely 5. This is at the tail end of the holiday season where people spent time in groups 6. The money being spent on complying with safety measures could be spent on remote socio-emotional support for students 7. Community members of color have been disproportionately affected by Covid-19 8. Students and staff are individually responsible to self-certify. This did not go well back when the schools were hybrid. The safety measures are not being followed leading to safety concerns 9. Families have not been asked for input since August, 2020 Al comienzo del año escolar se acordó cerrar las escuelas si la tasa de positividad alcanzaba cierto número. Ahora no hay límite y tenemos la tasa de positividad más alta desde que comenzó la pandemia. Este es una emergencia de salud pública para todos: 1. Los estudiantes que regresen a la escuela continuarán propagando el virus en contra de las medidas de prevención contra el Covid-19 2. U-46 es el segundo distrito escolar más grande del estado de Illinois, lo que se traduce en una situación de gran difusión de Covid-19 si los estudiantes regresan a las escuelas 3. Pone en riesgo al personal de limpieza, los conductores de autobuses, el personal de apoyo, los maestros, las enfermeras, sus familias y comunidades mas allá de la ciudad de Elgin también corren peligro 4. Podemos esperar un poco más ahora que hay una vacuna y regresar a la escuela sanos y salvos 5. Estamos al final de la temporada navideña, donde las personas pasaron tiempo en grupos 6. El dinero que se gasta en el cumplimiento de las medidas de salud y seguridad podría destinarse al apoyo socio-emocional a distancia para los estudiantes 7. Los miembros de la comunidad afroamericana y latina se han visto afectados de manera desproporcionada por Covid-19 8. Los estudiantes y el personal son responsables individualmente de autocertificarse. Esto no fue un procedimiento exitoso cuando las escuelas estaban en el plan híbrido de aprendizaje. No se siguen las medidas de seguridad, lo que genera problemas de salud 9. A las familias no se les ha pedido su opinión desde agosto de 2020

  • Community Open Letter in Support of Current DCARA Board
    In an attempt to regain power you have authorized the filing of multiple lawsuits against DCARA and its new Board members, which attempt to throw out the May 2019 community agreement and the September 2019 election of the current Board. Due to your utter lack of transparency and involvement in the racist incident during spring 2019, you have lost the trust of the Bay Area Deaf community. You should not use the legal system to disenfranchise the Deaf community and forcibly takeover this important nonprofit organization. We, the Bay Area Deaf Community, call on you to immediately withdraw your legal actions and accept the wishes of our community for new leadership on DCARA’s Board and the continuance of DCARA’s Executive Director, Raymond Rodgers.

  • Expel Josh Hawley
    After President Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential election, he and his supporters questioned the integrity of the election. After bringing concerns to courts of law where judges and justices--many of whom Trump appointed--confirmed the validity of the election, Donald Trump and his allies continued to spread misinformation, completely disregarding the United State’s tradition of a peaceful transfer of power, pioneered by John Adams centuries ago. This inappropriate behavior became more dangerous as January 6 approached and the president and his allies began to incite an insurrection against the authority of the United States’ electoral process. Donald Trump made statements including, “Basically, in effect, the ruling would be that you got to go to the streets and be as violent as Antifa” and “Big protest in D.C. on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!” Rudy Guilliani suggested “trial by combat” as a method for Trump supporters to dispute the election. And Senator Josh Hawley joined in, tweeting several incitements such as “Somebody has to stand up. 74 million Americans are not going to be told their voices don’t matter” and “It’s time to STAND UP” If it wasn’t clear that Hawley was encouraging the riot that occurred at the United States Capitol on January 6th, Hawley made sure to make his message clear by saluting the crowd with a raised, closed fist, a well known symbol of resistance. Josh Hawley directly incited and supported a deadly insurrection against his fellow Congressmen and Congresswomen which is not only unpatriotic, but also treasonous. It is illegal. 18 U.S. Code § 2383 states, “Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.” Josh Hawley has four years left of his term in the United States Senate. He must be removed now, though. If left in office, Hawley will continue to undermine the United States of America’s democracy. Hawley is a threat to what every patriot holds sacred. Josh Hawley must be held accountable for his actions now. In the past, support of rebellion or an act of treason has warranted expulsion, and it is the only appropriate measure here. Thus, the United States Senate must expel the junior Senator from Missouri and nothing less will be acceptable. Each signature attached to this petition indicates a United States citizen demanding that their Senate expel Josh Hawley for his treasonous acts.

  • Take the nuclear button away from Trump
    It is TERRIFYING that right now there is no check on Donald Trump’s power to launch nuclear weapons. It’s simple: if Donald Trump can’t be trusted with Twitter, he cannot be trusted with a nuclear arsenal that could end humanity as we know it. People created nuclear weapons and designed the systems governing their use — and people can work to limit and ultimately eliminate their use. Speaker Pelosi has already raised the alarm about Trump’s access to nuclear weapons with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs. Congress is primed to act, and a push from us could help make sure that they step in to take the nuclear button away from Trump and all future presidents.

  • The head of Chicago’s FOP is defending Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol. He has to go, NOW
    The violent attack on the US Capitol by Trump supporters—incited by Trump and his allies—was an attempt to violently overturn the results of the election. It left at least five people dead and threatened the lives of members of Congress, top government officials, Capitol police officers, and everyone who works at the Capitol. Rioters armed with guns, mace, handcuffs, and tactical gear entered the Capitol, and almost reached areas where members of Congress and others were hiding. Catanzara is defending the rioters, justifying and normalizing their attack on the Capitol, and downplaying the threat they posed. It’s dangerous, and needs to be stopped. When law enforcement signals to right wing militias and white supremacists that they’re on the same side, it encourages more serious acts of violence and sends the message that they may get away with it. Last year, we saw how this escalated violence in Kenosha, Portland, and elsewhere, with tragic results. Catanzara is making it more likely this will happen again, and at the same time he’s making it nearly impossible for people in Chicago to trust their police force. Here are a few quotes from Catanzara: • “Do I support [the Capitol attack]? I wouldn’t have partaken in it. They’re individuals. They get to do what they want. Again, they were voicing frustration. They’re entitled to voice their frustration.” • “They clearly have been ignored and they’re still being ignored as if they’re lunatics and treasonous now, which is beyond stupid.” • “Do I support the frustration? Listen, I don’t have any doubt that something shady happened in this election. You’re not going to convince me that that many people voted for Joe Biden. Never for the rest of my life will you ever convince me of that.” • “If the worst crime [at the Capitol] is trespassing, so be it.” • “it’s an inconvenience at this point, is all it is.” After Catanzara made these statements, it was reported that a Capitol Police officer died as a result of the riot. This is outrageous, but not surprising. Catanzara himself has had more than 35 official complaints against him as a police officer, and been suspended 6 times. He marched alongside white supremacists and QAnon supporters, and he is already being investigated by the Police Board for racist and violent social media posts, including one where he said Muslims “all deserve a bullet.” Chicago’s FOP and other police unions have long promoted violent, unaccountable, and authoritarian policing - and they viciously attack activists and political leaders who are pushing for change. During this election, Chicago’s FOP, the national FOP, and many other police unions endorsed Trump and waged a campaign of fear, lies, and inflammatory rhetoric to promote his re-election, and the authoritarianism he stands for. Chicago’s FOP in particular is notorious for attacking, intimidating, and threatening activists and political leaders who get in their way - and under Catanzara’s leadership, its actions have been more extreme and dangerous than ever. It’s time for Catanzara to be fired as a police officer and removed from his position as leader of Chicago’s FOP. Join us in calling on Chicago city leaders to publicly call for his removal and do everything in their power to make it happen.

  • SIGN: Terri Lynn Weaver Must Resign
    Terri Lynn Weaver participated in a day that led to an insurrection on our great country's capitol. She then proceeded to post via social media that the individuals there were patriots and "antifa" must have been behind any (seemingly unimportant to Weaver) unrest. This is inexcusable and unforgivable behavior. The people of the 40th deserve a representative with a higher moral compass and logical reasoning.

  • Hold them ALL accountable for the coup
    Unless this is done, laws become a lie and the democracy is well and truly dead. Unless this is done, you create a schism between power and the powerless that is too deep to heal; our brothers and sisters of color, our women, will never trust, will never stop fighting to create equality, and there will never be peace. Ever. Unless this is done, you confirm the ability of another dictator to take the White House, and you allow the Senators who care only for their own skins to keep perpetuating the violence and lack of morality to continue. And you simply kill our country.
