• Term Limits
    All Senators and Congressmen should be held to the same term limits as the President. If the president can get be re-elected only once Why are these people there so long? This will keep that seat from becoming a seat of power and corruption, it will keep them humble

  • maternity leave for foster parents with newborns
    15 months ago my husband and I became the proud foster parents of a 3 day old baby. He was born addicted to crack, alchohol and nicotine. We both still had to go to work each day. We were lucky enough that our bosses let us split the day til he was 6 weeks and old enough for daycare, but we were literally exhausted. There is no law that states our employers should give us any maternity leave. We would have lost our jobs if one of us didn't show up. Foster parents should have the same rights as any parents. This is just one of them.

  • Save the Catherine Ferguson Academy for Single Moms in Detroit, MI.
    The Ferguson Academy for Young Women is an alternative high school located in Detroit, MI. They provide education and resources for pregnant teens, grades 9-12. Many of the teens come from underprivileged backgrounds and are faced with daily challenges that infringe upon their educational opportunities. The Catherine Ferguson Academy strives to provide quality education in order to ensure a bright future for each child. The goal of the principal and teachers at the academy is to prevent the pregnancy cycle from reoccurring in the next generation of infants. Lots used for farming and a barn built by the students lie adjacent to the school. The barn houses a variety of farm animals that the students help care for. Help keep this school open! We need to continue to support Mama's and their quest of love to support themselves and their beautiful children. Every child is our child:: Let's petition the ACLU Michigan chapter to file a stay in court to prevent the school closure!!!

  • Stop The Great Anti-Sharia Freakout
    Three U.S. states have passed anti-Sharia laws since 2010 and now, 17 others are discussing similar bills. While the civil rights of Muslim Americans are being compromised through such legislation, there is ZERO threat of Sharia taking root in the U.S. Law makers should stop wasting our tax dollars pandering to xenophobia during this time of economic crisis.

  • Gov. Christie: Stop Hating Clean Energy
    Two years ago, Gov. Christie said he was going to be the “#1 number one advocate for clean energy.” Instead, he’s taking us backwards. Right before the Memorial Day weekend, he made national news by pulling New Jersey out of a regional pollution compact that was cutting down on global warming pollution and funding solar projects across the state. Now, he’s just announced that he wants to weaken New Jersey’s clean energy goals, and reduce their funding. Tell Gov. Christie to stop hating on clean energy, and ditch his plan to reduce our clean energy standards.

  • Civil Rights for ALL in Abington, PA
    On January 13, 2011, The Abington Township Board of Commissioners made history by voting down a Non-discrimination Ordinance. For the first time in Pennsylvania, a suburban municipality failed to pass a civil rights law. The ordinance would have protected all people who live, work, or conduct business in Abington. By a vote of 10 against (Commissioners John Carlin, Carol DiJoseph, Carol Gillespie, Wayne Luker, Bill Lynott, Peggy Meyers, James Ring, Robert Wachter, and Dennis Zappone) to 5 in favor (Commissioners Ernie Peacock, Les Benzak, Michael O’Connor, Steven Kline and Lori Schreiber), the audience was tearful as the ordinance failed to pass. Please become a civil rights champion to ensure that everyone in Abington is protected against housing, employment, and public accommodation (e.g. being served in a restaurant) discrimination. Our township's reputation, property values, educational system, children's safety, and citizenry are at stake. We're all in this together!

  • Stop Assault on Maine Voter Rights
    Please do not repeal the 38-year tradition of Election Day Registration or add a new requirement to present a photo ID every time you vote. Maine has had 2 cases of voter fraud in more than three decades, and our elections run remarkably smoothly. There is no need to roll back our voting rights simply so Gov. LePage can get re-elected.

  • Tell New York State leaders to support education reform
    Charter schools in New York State are fundamentally changing the way that our children learn. For the first time kids who otherwise wouldn't, are being given the tools and support to learn and the chance to succeed. The parents in these schools are profoundly thankful and yet some special interests and politicians are doing everything that they can to block progress. We want to tell our state leaders to stop fighting to keep open schools that have already failed, using a nineteenth century model, and start fighting for a twenty first century solution.
