• Tax Jeff Bezos, billionaires, and corporations so they pay their fair share!
    This is Ben and Jerry. Yup. Ol Ben and Ol Jerry. The ice cream guys. The people, not the corporation. And here's what's on our mind: Jeff Bezos and taxes. You see, Jeff Bezos blasted himself into space. Elon Musk is on deck. And if this billionaire space race reminds us of one thing, it's this: Billionaires like Bezos and Musk just aren't paying their fair share of taxes under today's tax code. Despite being among the world's richest billionaires, Bezos and Musk pay a tax rate lower than many of us. Massive corporations like Amazon regularly avoid paying federal taxes. Even guys like us who got rich selling ice cream should be paying more (we're not "blast ourselves into space" ultra-wealthy, but we get by. Republicans and Donald Trump passed a tax scheme to benefit the ultra-wealthy and corporations—while shifting the burden onto the rest of us and underfunding critical infrastructure and our social safety net. We have the chance to change this right now. The Senate and House could pass tax laws that force the ultra-wealthy and corporations to pay their fair share. This would reduce the burden on the working class, while also investing in infrastructure, Social Security, health care, education, combating climate change, and so much more. Tell Congress: Tax Jeff Bezos so he and other billionaires, the ultra-wealthy, and corporations pay their fair share.

  • Gov. DeSantis - RESTORE COVID Data Transparency in FL!
    By having access to real-time data regarding the spread of COVID-19 in our local communities and within the state as a whole, we are able to make informed choices for ourselves, our families, our businesses, our schools, and our community as a whole. COVID-19 rapidly spreading and impacting every facet of our lives also impacts our economy. Everything is connected. By having access to this data, we not only have the opportunity to make wiser choices (which will save lives), but it will also help us get back to a safer baseline where normalcy is more attainable and economic impact is lessened.

  • Save The Carousel House
    I come to you this day in need of help. I was informed that The Carousel house in Fairmount park has been set to be demolished. This hits home and saddens me deeply because I have a direct link to this center, my family immediate and extended have spent countless years at this center. It's one of the last places in the city of Philadelphia where the disabled, mentally challenged and visually impaired can gather together and be constructive. The carousel house over the last 48 years has given the disabled a place to feel a sense of community and purpose. By providing therapeutic activities and competitive sports. There aren't many spaces left in this city for these people to go. Please help save and restore this center for not just this generation but the next to come.

    We depend on our local post office for many things. Businesses and publications need the post office. Rural post offices are very important to rural residents. There are many reasons people need the local post office. Louis DeJoy needs to be fired for sabotaging our USPS.

  • Raise SSI/SSDI permanently due to Changing economy due to COVID/Poverty
    I am not the only one in this mess. I know other people feel the crunch of their expenses and day to day lives. People are scared to ask for more, because they know they'll be denied. I say we ask anyway, can't try, can't do. What if we change things?! What if we find a solution! What if we are listened too! Sign your name, and work for positive change. Let's not give up!

  • Emergency Relief for Cuba / Ayuda de emergencia para Cuba
    After the overtures made during the Obama administration to restore diplomatic relations with Cuba, the Trump administration reversed course adding 243 new sanctions that block bank loans, prohibit imports of basic necessities, bar travel between the US and Cuba, and no longer allows US citizens to send remittances to their families in Cuba. The international community’s vote taken on June 23 in the United Nations’ General Assembly 184 - 2 overwhelmingly called to end the blockade of Cuba. Elected officials in dozens of municipal and state governments across this country have also joined this call to normalize relations and advance the diplomatic relations initiated under Obama. Restoration of normalized relations is good for business, for exchange in advances in medicine, cultural exchange and a restoration of family relations. We further call on the Biden/ Harris administration to fast-track normalizing diplomatic relations between Cuba and the United States and join the global community in recognizing the failure of the blockade as a solution or substitute for meaningful dialogue. We appreciate you taking the time to sign and share this petition. *** Después de las insinuaciones hechas durante el gobierno de Obama para restablecer las relaciones diplomáticas con Cuba, el gobierno de Trump dio marcha atrás, añadiendo 243 nuevas sanciones que bloquean los préstamos bancarios, prohíben las importaciones de productos de primera necesidad, prohíben los viajes entre Estados Unidos y Cuba, y ya no permiten a los ciudadanos estadounidenses enviar remesas a sus familias en Cuba. La comunidad internacional votó el 23 de junio en la Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas 184 - 2 de forma abrumadora para poner fin al bloqueo de Cuba. Funcionarios electos en docenas de gobiernos municipales y estatales en todo el país también se han unido a este llamado para normalizar las relaciones y avanzar en las relaciones diplomáticas iniciadas bajo Obama. El restablecimiento de las relaciones normalizadas es bueno para los negocios, para el intercambio en los avances de la medicina, el intercambio cultural y el restablecimiento de las relaciones familiares. Además, hacemos un llamamiento a la administración Biden/Harris para que acelere la normalización de las relaciones diplomáticas entre Cuba y Estados Unidos y se una a la comunidad mundial en el reconocimiento del fracaso del bloqueo como solución o sustituto de un diálogo significativo. Le agradecemos que se tome el tiempo de firmar y compartir esta petición. ¿Quieres hacer más? Te animamos a que te pongas en contacto con tus senadores y representantes y les instes a que presionen a Biden para que proporcione ayuda a Cuba.

  • Tell Mayor Ginther: Cancel the dangerous North Broadway crossing for the Olentangy Trail
    The City is planning to spend millions of dollars on an unnecessary bridge and trail segment ... that will take pedestrian and bicycle traffic directly to a highway off-ramp. There are far better and more cost-effective ways to improve trail safety on Milton from Kenworth over to Delhi! If built, this ill-advised crossing will be a permanent feature of our city infrastructure for DECADES. Let's demand that the City of Columbus do better.

  • Stop the Closure of PIH Good Samaritan Hospital Childcare Center
    More disheartening is our disappointment of PIH’s lack of recognition of The Center’s staff and teachers. Almost all of 2020, PIH medical staff were on the front lines risking their lives to help Angelenos cope with this deadly pandemic. As parents and grandparents took their place on the line, The Center’s staff took theirs alongside by risking their own lives to be there for the children, giving their parents and grandparents peace of mind needed to focus on their work and ensuring their children were safe and cared for. PIH medical staff would be able to perform their duties and care for the community because they had the most progressive benefit that most employers are trying to figure out, onsite childcare services. Yet, instead of celebrating The Center’s commitment to their fellow staff members and praising them for the support they provided, PIH’s actions are a slap in the face to the contributions of their teachers and caretakers. PIH’s short sighted cost cutting is a message to medical staff who are parents that their contribution to the company is disposable. In addition, PIH’s decision is a signal to new employees with young aged children that they are not interested in supporting their growing families and to figure it out because investing in their employees’ wellbeing is not part of their grand plan to grow and expand their services within the community. Research has shown that this pandemic has affected working parents with children under six years of age immensely, showing numbers of increased unemployment specifically for working mothers. In fact, eight percent of working mothers with a child under age 13, are employed in the hospital industry (2019, Center for American Progress). Removing this benefit from PIH’s Benefit Package will greatly impact the retention of their workforce, the quality of their services and reduce their recruitment efforts of working parents. PIH Health’s mission statement includes their commitment to contribute to the health and well-being of our communities, THIS community. The Center has served employees and the Pico-Union/Westlake community for over 25 years and it’s staff has reflected in their commitment with teachers who have been loyal to The Center, its families, and to each other for 5, 10, 15, and even 20 plus years of service. The Center is one of few childcare centers within the downtown area that not only benefited the employees of PIH-GSH but also served the parents/guardians of children that work and serve in the nearby community including government, nonprofit, school and private sector employees. Closing this center equates to one less option for child care within the downtown area. It has gained the support and funding of over 60 past donors, including Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp., the late Mr. & Mrs William Henry Doheny, The Harold McAlister Charitable Foundation, and many more community members and associates who believed The Center was worth the investment. The staff of The Center has taken care of the children of many doctors, nurses, staff and administrators who work in this primarily low-income area of the City of Los Angeles who have watched their children grow up and become part of the very community they serve. Caring for the community is part of PIH HEALTH’s mission. And it is clear that the hospital staff is driven and dedicated to that mission of ensuring that their patience in the community receives quality healthcare and wellbeing. The decision to take this critical resource away from the staff at their hospital and the families in the area does not align with and contradicts its mission. We hold the Board of Directors accountable for allowing this misalignment to exist and misinform decision makers to even entertain the idea of choosing business development initiatives over the education and care of children under the age of 4 years old within the very community they serve. We, the undersigned parents and supporters of this cause, strongly believe that the PIH Good Samaritan Hospital Childcare Center closure is a huge disservice to families and the community in the area, and will negatively harm children, parents, and teachers given the limited number of childcare centers operating in Los Angeles County.

  • Protect Our Freedom to Vote Now!
    We have a unique opportunity to protect the freedom to vote right now—and we need to take it because Republican attacks on voters and voting rights are only speeding up. Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives have passed the For the People Act, which includes bold measures to defend voting rights and take on Big Money. And now we need Senate Democrats to use every ounce of their power to pass the For the People Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, and statehood for the District of Columbia to ensure Republicans can't rig the rules in their favor and in support of their rich donors and corporate power. Right-wing attacks on voting rights—and especially voters of color—are nothing new, but the current state-by-state attempts at voter suppression are amplified by Trump's destructive lies about the 2020 election. And as these measures take hold, it will require federal action to confront these right-wing attacks and protect our freedom to vote. Our freedom to vote should not depend on our zip code or the color of our skin. Democrats need to act now while they hold the majority in both houses of Congress and the White House. There's no time to waste.

  • Support Pfaffly's Bond Fire Rebuild
    The County of Orange has made it known that rebuilding in the canyon areas is going to be difficult. I understand that no new building should be allowed in wildfire areas but this is an example of long-time residents wanting to replace their home.
