• Corporations: Withhold campaign contributions from anyone who enacts voting restrictions
    Republicans think they can get away with taking the lazy option of choosing who votes instead of the courageous option of learning, and getting behind, what voters really want. This is partly because they have historically held the support of large corporations who benefit from their anti-labor stance of tax breaks, subsidies, and loopholes. But the support of business leaders helped Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., be recognized in his own state for winning the Nobel Peace Prize. In 2006, pressure from business leaders helped incentivize the Republican-led Congress to reauthorize the Voting Rights Act. Big business responded to the January 6 riot by pulling campaign contributions from members of Congress who voted to interfere with the electoral vote count. And current activism by voting-rights advocates in Georgia and elsewhere have spurred major US companies to come down on the side of democracy. Voters are consumers, and companies ultimately answer to us. Tell US companies to stand up and put their money and their clout where their mouth is. No more mealymouthed finger-shaking in the face of brazen attempts to resurrect Jim Crow: It's time to make the same decision they made after January 6. No more funding for the campaigns of any lawmaker, anywhere, who votes to enact policies that restrict voting rights in the name of the Big Lie. There was no fraud. There was no steal. What there SHOULD be is consequences for the liars and cheats who want to steal votes from Americans. Tell big business to make anti-democratic lawmakers get reelected on their own dime if this is how they're going to "serve" the people.

  • My life does not need Prior Authorization
    I have been a type one diabetic for 22 years and have always struggled with getting the insulin or the supplies I need, for example, a CGM (Continous Glucose Monitoring System). My brother passed away on March 25th, 2019 due to diabetes complications. My brother had no medical insurance for years in the state of texas because they simply chose not to provide it. That is unacceptable and sadly is not an uncommon story. My brother was weeks away from his 29th, birthday and it is a pain I live with every day. We have a responsibility to keep people healthy and asking people to do without very basic supplies is a death sentence.

  • Mitch McConnell must give back all corporate money
    We all know that corporations give to both sides of the aisle. It's how they get legislation that's favorable to what they want to do in business. It's been like that for decades, and until we pass legislation to get rid of dark money, it will stay that way. But now Mitch McConnell says corporations must stay out of politics. Well, staying out of politics means no more corporate contributions to politicians then. Since Mitch doesn't want corporations sticking their noses in politics, Mitch has to give back ALL the money he has taken from them. After all, we wouldn't want him to get any more corrupted than he already is, right?

  • Launch an impeachment inquiry against Justice Brett Kavanaugh
    In a March 2021 letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse argues that the FBI’s 2018 investigation into sexual assault allegations against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was “politically-constrained and probably fake.” According to the letter, the FBI failed to conduct a thorough review of the evidence against Kavanaugh, including ignoring a tip line for allegations and evidence and refusing to hear witness testimony. Free Speech For People has repeatedly called for Kavanaugh’s impeachment on the basis of perjury, as well as on sexual assault allegations and an overt display of political bias during his confirmation hearing. The case for impeachment has only grown as he continues to bring the judiciary into disrepute.

  • Amy Wickes' Legacy: In the Name of Justice
    The female only pod of the jail is designed to expand programming aimed at reducing rates of recidivism. Amy worked tirelessly to inform the public of the poor conditions at the "God Awful Franklin County Jail". She knew our system needed major reformation to reduce recidivism rates and advocated for the very same solutions being implemented by the courts and built into this new jail. Amy’s message of decency, justice and morality had a lasting impact and deserves a permanent place of recognition. We cannot think of a more appropriate way to do just that, so we hope you will support our efforts by signing this petition, which will be presented to the Franklin County Board of Commissioners for consideration.

  • CNN, time to leave Georgia. No to state legislated voting discrimination.
    A state political party should be sent a very clear message that abusing government power to suppress votes will not be tolerated by businesses because supporting unethical state legislatures economically funds corrupt government and it will not and should not be tolerated. The legislatures and ELECTED representatives should be held responsible for driving businesses out of state. Businesses should only support states economically that support democracy not actively suppress it. Because that is what is truly at stake.

  • End corporate funding of the anti-democracy GOP
    The destruction of our democracy is being enabled and financed by Coca-Cola and many other corporations through contributions to Republican committees, candidates and the PACs that support them. It's not enough to issue belated press statements against voter suppression laws being enacted across the country, corporations must ACT. This is far more effective than choosing to buy Pepsi.

  • Make Hank Aaron's Milwaukee site of 2021 MLB All-Star Game
    Major League Baseball took a principled stand in support of increasing voter participation when it decided to move this year's All-Star game out of Atlanta in response to the GA legislature passing voting restrictions. The best symbolic alternative location would be Milwaukee for three reasons: 1. The MLB All-Star game provides significant economic benefits to the host community. In 2020, Milwaukee lost the anticipated economic benefits of the Democratic National Convention, when the in-person convention was cancelled due to the COVID 19 pandemic. 2. Milwaukee is an important home of the current social justice movement. Milwaukee is a community dealing with a legacy of extreme de facto segregation, and Wisconsin is a state with significant inequities in outcomes for its black citizens. Wisconsin is one of the states most effected by partisan gerrymandering, another practice that seeks to take power away from the voting public. 3. Hank Aaron started and ended his storied career in Milwaukee, playing there 11 seasons before the franchise moved to Atlanta, and playing his last two seasons with the Milwaukee Brewers. Baseball's true Home Run King, was a contemporary of Jackie Robinson's, and faced discrimination with class and determination. Hank Aaron passed away in January 2021, and will be honored at the 2021 All-Star Game.
