• Stop Funding Insurrection
    On January 6th, 2021, a violent mob of Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to block the U.S. Congress from certifying Joe Biden's election as President of the United States. Thanks to poisonous right-wing propaganda from Fox News and others, millions of Americans now believe the total lie that Donald Trump won the 2020 elections. There is zero evidence to support this propaganda, and U.S. courts have repeatedly rejected such claims. It is time to hold corporate advertisers and right-wing donors publicly accountable. We must stop their support for insurrectionist politicians and propaganda platforms that threaten the survival of our democracy.

HIS ACTIONS HAVE INSPIRED • ARMED STANDOFF IN THE CAPITOL CHAMBERS • EVACUATING CHAMBERS • MEMBERS OF CONGRESS SHELTERING IN PLACE

  • Call for resignation of Cathy McMorris Rodgers
    Our Democracy is at Stake and these actions should never go unheeded, nor should they be "swept under the rug" and forgotten. With one person murdered and several more dead her role in this is reprehensible.

  • Turn Off the Bright Lights Above the Hollywood Sign
    Griffith Park is home to an abundance of flora and fauna. Plants and animals depend on Earth’s daily cycle of light and dark rhythm to govern life-sustaining behaviors such as reproduction, nourishment, sleep and protection from predators. Scientific evidence suggests that artificial light at night has negative and deadly effects on many creatures including amphibians, birds, mammals, insects and plants. Nocturnal animals sleep during the day and are active at night. Light pollution radically alters their nighttime environment by turning night into day. According to research scientist Christopher Kyba, for nocturnal animals, “the introduction of artificial light probably represents the most drastic change human beings have made to their environment.” “Predators use light to hunt, and prey species use darkness as cover,” Kyba explains “Near cities, cloudy skies are now hundreds, or even thousands of times brighter than they were 200 years ago. We are only beginning to learn what a drastic effect this has had on nocturnal ecology.” Please see the link below with more information from Travis Longcore, Ph.D. Associate Adjunct Professor at the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability. https://travislongcore.net/research/light-pollution/

  • 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.
