• Immediate Release of National Protective Equipment Stockpiles to Hospitals
    If the health care providers get sick the capacity to deliver medical care collapses and many thousands will die. IMMEDIATE release of supplies is required as hospitals are already facing large numbers of infected patients and are running out of protective equipment. Staff exposures now means loss of health care capacity later when then the patient numbers will be even higher. Releasing equipment after medical care providers have been exposed is too late; then the future loss of medical care providers will be imminent.

  • APD is NOT Taking Coronavirus Seriously!!!
    I am the fiancé of an employee of APD (Albuquerque Police Department) and have had to see my partner be forced to go into work even though the rest of city employees are safe and secure in their homes. Their reasoning: "if you can't work from home, you must come into work." This, which goes against all recommendations, is their stance to force non-essential individuals to go to work and ignore anything related to COVID-19. Along with that stance, they are threatening people's jobs by indicating if they do not comply they will be disciplined up to the point of termination. And, the distance between employees in various areas are not 6ft apart. During the middle of the week of March 16, 2020 I was informed that a person tested positive for COVID-19 inside the building I work in. A single floor building with close cubicles, one bathroom per gender, and shared common areas. This is very serious, unnerving, and I have been in self-quarantine since. Even when APD was informed of this, they ignored it and still forced my fiancé to go into work. Along with every other non-essential civilian employee that they decided to make "essential" from when they have always been considered non-essential. This change was made last minute, not communicated, and APD has had over 15 years to communicate to individuals if they are essential or not. And all of these employees are non-essential until APD finds it convenient to force them into work and change their status from human to slave. They received a lot of money after 9/11 to have an emergency plans ready. APD is not taking the COVID-19 seriously and forcing non-essential civilian employees to go into work against the protocols issued by the Mayor and the Governor. Especially when there is a real concern present! Think about this: would you want someone being forced to go into the office after their partner has been potentially exposed? I currently do not have any symptoms; but, with the unknown of the COVID-19 I am being cautious. And, every day my fiancé has to go into the office and have a potential of either spreading it or picking it up from those in the building is scary. We cannot have a true quarantine until my fiancé and all other non-essential employees are released home for two weeks, at least! Please stand with me and every other civilian employee to tell APD that their stance on not taking this seriously is endangering the health of their civilian employees, our city, and the community!

  • Senator Richard Burr Must Go!
    The public has the right to trust its public servants are serving the public and not themselves. Senator Burr used non-public information to better his personal financial interests and he shared that information with a few wealthy elites while he told the general public not to worry. I am running to represent North Carolina's 11th Congressional District because restoring integrity and accountability in Washington is vital to pull our democracy out of the nosedive it's in now. I pledge that if I am elected, I will put my assets in a true blind trust and I challenge other candidates from all parties to take the same pledge. If elected, I will introduce legislation that requires every member of Congress, the President and the Vice President to put their assets into blind trusts. That will give meaning to the phrase "government ethics" rather than making it a punchline for a bad joke.

  • FREE Sean O'Brien
    Sean has spent 17 long years in prison, that's over half his life! He was taken from his family at age 16 and forced to grow up behind bars. He proved his innocence at his Evidentiary Hearing in federal court on January 17, 2017. He has waited over 3 years for a ruling on his case, and there is no end in sight. In 2015, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in Sean's favor based on Ineffective Assistance of Counsel, stating that his evidence makes it impossible for him to have been at the crime for which he was convicted. The state of CA does not dispute the evidence Sean has proving his innocence. Yet he is still behind bars. Sean is a college student with a 4.0 GPA, he is actively involved in many positive programs and is Chairman of the Men's Advisory Council. He tutors and mentors other inmates and has been recommended for resentencing by CDCR. https://youtu.be/z_ZW-dq1zoY Www.innocentat16.com

  • Jim Inhofe must resign for profiting from coronavirus info
    Senator Jim Inhofe is up for reelection this coming November. Not only did he sell his stock while knowing about the impending outbreak, but he also downplayed it to the citizens of Oklahoma. On top of that, he was one of the 8 senators to vote no on the Coronavirus Relief Measure. It is clear that Senator Inhofe's interests are in himself and not the protection of Oklahoma residents. This is unforgivable and we need to tell him to resign immediately. https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/488593-four-senators-sold-stocks-before-coronavirus-threat-crashed-market https://nypost.com/2020/03/20/richard-burr-kelly-loeffler-urged-to-resign-for-selling-stocks-after-coronavirus-briefing/ https://kfor.com/news/senate-approves-house-passed-coronavirus-relief-measure-both-ok-senators-vote-no/

  • Investigate Sen. Loeffler: Profiting off of a Pandemic
    A Senate Republican may have engaged in an absolutely shameful -- and possibly criminal -- insider trading scheme around the COVID-19 crisis, according to new reporting. Senator Kelly Loeffler received briefings about the coronavirus as a member of the Senate Health Committee. And publicly, she downplayed concerns about an outbreak -- saying that the Trump administration was “doing a great job working to keep Americans healthy and safe.” But in private, Loeffler was selling off her portfolio -- unloading up to millions in stocks right before they lost huge amounts of market value. She also invested in a teleconferencing company, which has already seen a bump in its stock price due to the current public health crisis. That means Loeffler’s inside information as a senator let her dodge the market crash that’ll shrink millions of Americans’ retirement savings. Profiting off of a pandemic is despicable. If the allegations are true, instead of serving the American people in a moment of crisis -- Loeffler used her position as a senator to enrich herself. Common Cause has filed official complaints with the Senate Ethics Committee, the Department of Justice, and the Securities and Exchange Commission to demand an investigation into Loeffler -- as well as Senators Richard Burr, Jim Inhofe, and Dianne Feinstein, who did a similar stock sell-off earlier this year. If Loeffler engaged in this outrageous self-serving conduct, she has no right to continue to serve in the U.S. Senate. Add your name to demand a full investigation immediately.

  • TELL HOLLYWOOD MAYOR JOSH LEVY: FREEZE RENT, BUILDING MAINTENANCE AND PUBLIC SERVICES PAYMENTS.
    During the COVID-19 crisis, we all have a responsibility towards our communities to keep ourselves healthy and avoid situations that can spread the virus. As of March 17th, the state of Florida will close all gastronomic companies and others companies close for health and safety in order to help us uphold that responsibility. While this is a step in the right direction regarding public health, the effects of these sweeping business closures affect the livelihood of thousands of Florida residents that depends exclusively of theri salaries and tips to live. Without a plan in place to supplement the income of these workers, and with no guarantee that unemployment benefits will provide the relief people need, we demand a moratorium on all the items mentioned above NOW. Hard-working people are going to suffer at the expense of the greater good. While we don't deny the importance of instituting these closures, we would be ashamed and heartbroken to watch our government let people who may face evictions, blows to their credit, or be backed into a corner financially through no fault of their own. As a full-time worker in the Turism industry this is my sole source of income. For so many of my friends and family in the industry and all the industries who maybe affected, as well, this only salary are their MAIN source of income. Simply providing people with an unemployment payment or temporary paid leave at minimum wage would not be enough to cover their typical expenses. We need Hollywood and Florida as a whole to put a moratorium NOW in order to preserve the livelihood of so many hardworking people in any industry affected during this time of crisis.

  • Investigate Sen. Burr: Profiting off of a Pandemic
    A leading Senate Republican may have engaged in an absolutely shameful -- and possibly criminal -- insider trading scheme around the COVID-19 crisis, according to a new report by ProPublica. Senator Richard Burr received daily briefings about the coronavirus as Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. And publicly, he downplayed concerns about an outbreak -- saying we were “better prepared than ever before.” But in private, Burr was selling off his portfolio -- unloading up to $1.6 million in stocks right before they lost huge amounts of market value. That means Burr’s inside information as a senator let him dodge the market crash that will shrink millions of Americans’ retirement savings. It does seem as though Burr kept some in the loop about the impending crisis, behind closed doors -- his wealthy donors. Profiting off of a pandemic is despicable. If the allegations are true, instead of serving the American people in a moment of crisis -- Burr used his position as a senator to enrich himself. Common Cause has filed official complaints with the Senate Ethics Committee, the Department of Justice, and the Securities and Exchange Commission to demand an investigation into Burr -- as well as Senators Kelly Loeffler, Jim Inhofe, and Dianne Feinstein, who did a similar stock sell-off earlier this year. ProPublica’s report implicates Burr in a clear-cut violation of the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act (STOCK) Act. If Burr engaged in this outrageous self-serving conduct, he has no right to continue to serve in the U.S. Senate. Add your name to demand a full investigation immediately.

  • Pass a Rescue Plan that Puts People First
    We built a relief package that is centered on workers and saves our economy from the ground up. Our plan provides government aid to keep people in their jobs so they keep their paychecks and their healthcare. This isn't the corporate bailouts of the past. Every dime of federal grant money under our plan goes directly to people on the frontlines and prevents mass layoffs. At the same time, we hold corporations accountable by enforcing strict rules that will help balance our economy in the future. For aviation, the coronavirus pandemic is creating a financial catastrophe that dwarfs the economic cost of the Great Recession and September 11th combined. Washington is gearing up to save aviation, but we can't have another "no strings attached" bailout where corporations and executives get payouts while workers lose our jobs, our benefits and our pensions. We won't let that happen again. Aviation will be critical for restarting our economy. But nearly all aviation workers need background checks and security training that can take weeks or even months. If workers are laid off and lose their clearance, we will have long delays getting planes back in the air. That will create a bottleneck in our recovery just as we need to get going again. Unions representing workers across aviation have put forward a plan that puts people first, holds corporations accountable AND keeps aviation ready to fly. We need Congress to support it. Our plan starts with keeping people on the payroll with no furloughs or layoffs through direct federal grants so every aviation workers stays on payroll. Airlines and other corporations helped create this crisis by using their cash to buy back their own stock. That's why our plan also bans stock buybacks for companies receiving help, and says no company receiving help can hand out executive bonuses or stock dividends until long after the money has been paid back. It's a model that can be expanded across industries to keep people on payroll and hold corporations accountable. Tell Congress to support the People First package championed by aviation unions.
