• African Americans Demand Reparations After 400 Years of Slavery
    People should join my campaign because African Americans had fought hard for immigrants, LGBT, people with disabilities, women, and other minorities the right to vote. Without African Americans, American democracy would not exist today. Please show empathy and commitment because time cannot wait. Thank you and have a great weekend.

  • ADD YOUR NAME: Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey must go!
    On the morning of February 2, a Minneapolis SWAT team acted on a no-knock warrant and within seconds, murdered 22-year-old Amir Locke in cold blood. Amir was another Black person tragically killed at the hands of Minneapolis police. The Minneapolis Police Department is the same police force that murdered George Floyd, whose death sparked the nationwide protests in defense of Black lives. After the murder of George Floyd by MPD, Mayor Jacob Frey talked for weeks and months about the need for major police reform. The reality is, at every step of the way, Jacob Frey has reneged on his promises, blocked meaningful police reform efforts, and lied to protect MPD. And his lies have had deadly consequences. To protect Black lives in Minneapolis and invest in what keeps our communities safe, Jacob Frey must step aside. Add your name to demand Frey resign effective immediately. Last year, Frey and his allies spent millions of dollars to kill Question 2, a ballot measure to create a department of public safety in Minneapolis. Frey also said that he led the fight to “ban” no-knock warrants. As the murder of Amir Locke demonstrated, this was a lie. In an attempt to assassinate his character, MPD labeled Locke a “suspect” and Frey stood by and said nothing in response to that lie. After years of empty promises, Minneapolis has the same police force it had when George Floyd was murdered — and Jacob Frey has increased the police budget by tens of millions of dollars year after year. Frey has demonstrated time and time again that his words can’t be trusted and he is complicit in state-sanctioned violence against Black people. The time is now. We must demand that mayor Jacob Frey resign as mayor of Minneapolis. ADD YOUR NAME: Cops lie, so does Frey. Demand Minneapolis' mayor Jacob Frey resigns.

  • Tell AT&T: Cut ALL ties with One America News
    Last October, an explosive report revealed that One America News (OAN) – the Trump-approved, ultra-conservative cable “news” network – exists largely thanks to AT&T. [1] Not only was AT&T responsible for 90% of OAN’s revenue – but AT&T executives allegedly approached OAN’s founder and encouraged him to start the network, saying the company wanted to add a Fox News competitor to its collection. In response to these revelations, more than 120,000 Common Cause members signed a petition urging AT&T to cut ties with One America News (OAN). And now, AT&T has announced that it will DROP OAN from its DirecTV platform when its contract expires this spring. This decision will drastically limit OAN’s reach, and with it, its ability to spread dangerous disinformation about the integrity of our elections – lies that incited a deadly attack at our Capitol last January and hundreds of anti-voter bills in states. This is a major victory in our fight against election disinformation – but more must be done. AT&T has, through a number of financial entanglements and quid pro quo agreements, been instrumental in OAN’s success. Now, the company must publicly commit to terminating their relationship altogether. AT&T is clearly listening to consumers. If you agree that the company should cut all financial and business ties with One America News, add your name today. 1) https://www.reuters.com/investigates/special-report/usa-oneamerica-att/

  • Prosecute Trump!
    Time and time again, Trump has evaded accountability for his attacks against our democracy because people have been afraid to stand up. The GOP helped acquit him after he abused his power and obstructed Congress— and even after he incited the deadly white supremacist-led insurrection on January 6, 2021, they continued to say that he had done nothing wrong. Enough is enough. A federal judge declared in a ruling that “more likely than not,” Donald Trump committed crimes in his attempted coup to sabotage the results of the 2020 election to keep himself in power over the will of the American people. The Department of Justice can and must act swiftly to hold him accountable for the same laws that we are required to follow. We are not a nation that is supposed to be dedicated to tyrants. If we allow Trump to get away with his attempt to overthrow the democratically elected government of the United States to keep himself in power, we are setting the stage for him or a future would-be tyrant to do it again-- or allowing him to get away with it soon.

  • Hold Donald Trump accountable for his document destruction
    New reports expose how Trump may have repeatedly broken the law during his presidency. These violations could be punishable by fines or imprisonment – or perhaps even disqualify him from holding public office again. According to his former staffers, Trump had a habit of indiscriminately tearing up documents – like “briefings and schedules, articles and letters, memos both sensitive and mundane.” [1] This may be a violation of the Presidential Records Act, which was enacted after Richard Nixon’s presidency to prevent another Watergate-style cover-up. If the Department of Justice investigates Trump’s actions and determines that he broke this law, he could face serious legal consequences. As one of the ex-president’s former staffers put it: “[Trump] didn’t want a record of anything. He never stopped ripping things up.” Another senior official noted that he and other White House staffers were regularly told to put torn-up documents into “burn bags” to be destroyed. Later, teams would have to dump the bags out and put pieces back together like a jigsaw puzzle to figure out what needed to be saved. The Presidential Records Act was passed specifically to prevent this kind of dangerous behavior. But thanks to Trump’s blatant disregard for the law, we will never have a full record of his presidency. Add your name if you agree that the Justice Department needs to investigate Trump’s document destruction – and that if he violated the law, he must be held accountable. 1) https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2022/02/05/trump-ripping-documents/

  • Stop erasing history and teach our children!
    Our kids deserve the opportunity to be taught American history in its entirety – not just history about white Americans. The extremist GOP doesn’t get to take away our right to teach students about complex histories. We can all play a part in fighting back against white supremacy and misinformation in our schools by sending a clear message to school boards, principals and superintendents that our children should be taught accurately about the history of this nation.

  • Break up the Ivy League cartel!
    This special treatment for elite universities began when Congress passed a law allowing schools with “need-blind” admissions — meaning students’ ability to pay is not factored into their applications — to collaborate on the formulas used to determine the level of aid. In theory, this law was intended to prevent discrimination against college applicants on the basis of wealth. But in practice, eliminating price competition among 28 of the wealthiest universities in the US may have enabled those schools to cut financial aid packages without fear of losing applicants to competing schools. The policy may have led to exclusion of low income applicants, and may be driving the skyrocketing tuition costs the US has seen over the past 30 years. Since 1990, public university tuition has nearly tripled — perhaps because other schools set tuition relative to elite colleges. The DOJ must investigate the 28 member universities of the ‘568 Presidents’ Group’ for potential discrimination on the basis of income and for possibly overcharging students on financial aid hundreds of millions of dollars in total over the past 18 years!

  • Expand the Supreme Court!
    Even if Democrats nominate and confirm the progressive Black woman Supreme Court justice this country needs, the far right will retain its supermajority on the court… and continue trumping the public interest and eroding our basic rights in the years to come. But the situation isn’t futile. Congress can pass legislation to rebalance the Supreme Court now, before Republicans have the chance to secure a Congressional majority in the midterms. It’s constitutional, it’s happened before, and it’s the only way to disrupt the dangerous path we’re on. Unless Congress acts now, before Republicans have the chance to secure a congressional majority in the midterms, the Supreme Court will keep handing down pro-business decisions for years to come.

  • LIVE STREAM TOWN OF GEDDES BOARD MEETINGS
    The dangers of gathering in public spaces during a pandemic, along with the regular challenges to attending town board meetings in person due to disability or conflicting work schedules continue to keep many residents from fully participating in local government. As both the technology and the volunteers exist to implement this change immediately, we request that the board sanction, announce and facilitate such an effort forthwith.
