• Show Me the “Us”
    If this campaign is really about “Us”, I'd like to see the Bernie campaign bring more leadership in this regard. I don’t want this campaign to be about one 78-year-old white man (as awesome as he is). I want this campaign to be about the strong, diverse, deeply passionate, visionary LEADERS (emphasis on the plural) we need to get us out of this giant mess and into a bright future. Show us that future. Show us the strength of our diversity. Show us what a Sanders Administration would look like, sound like and act like. Introduce America to these people and help us get to know them.  Help us build trust in that broad coalition and not just in one man.  Help these leaders become household names as well. Help us clearly see the diverse coalition of leaders who could represent our hopes and our future. Don’t wait for the nomination to figure this out. Be different. Show me the “Us”! Show me women and people of color in the top leadership of your administration. Show me worker's rights leaders, indigenous leaders, LGBTQ leaders, immigrant-rights leaders. Show me youthful next generation leaders, please.  Show me small business leaders for local living economies and strong communities.  Show me advocates for farming, local livelihoods and functional ecosystems. Show me advocates for uplift of the poor. Show me environmental and climate justice leaders. You get the idea. Build me this coalition. Show me the "Us"! There are so many reasons why this would be a smart strategy: 1. This would be a powerful demonstration of this campaign’s most prominent value. It’s right there on the home page. 2. If the campaign is able to demonstrate its ability to a gather a diverse coalition of progressive leaders (in which women and people of color are strongly represented), don't you think that might help the campaign appeal to those communities? Just a thought! 3. This is not a traditional political strategy and that is GOOD.  This is a way to diversify the power of an American presidential campaign. This is also a powerful opportunity for the Sanders campaign to differentiate itself and show the American people that it is no ordinary political campaign. 4. A broadly-based coalition of leaders is more difficult to destabilize. 2020 is not an ordinary campaign year and Trump and the Republicans have demonstrated a zeal for foul play. To win, the Sanders campaign will need to be prepared for dirty tricks of all sorts. 5. Bernie is 78 years old. The wise and responsible course of action for such an elder leader is to use his name recognition to build a coalition of next-generation visionary leaders and introduce these leaders to the American people, pronto. America’s (and perhaps the world's) future should not depend solely on the heart health of one 78-year-old man. Let’s build a strong, resilient coalition of progressive leaders for a livable future. 6. By featuring a diverse coalition of leaders at the heart of his campaign, Bernie would be directly manifesting the democratic revolution that he claims to represent. Show me that revolution. Show me the “Us”!

  • Attorney General Barr is unfit for office
    Attorney General William Barr has made one thing entirely clear: he has no intention of serving the American people. Rather, as long as he’s in office, he will continue to abuse his power -- and act like President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer. The Attorney General is supposed to defend our nation and our Constitution by making sure no one -- not even the president -- is above the law. They should be committed to upholding the principles of our democracy, not serving any single party or politician. And with a president like Trump, who’ll do whatever it takes to get his way, a strong and independent Attorney General couldn’t be more vital. But Attorney General Barr has repeatedly proven that he will do the president’s bidding: - He brazenly misled Congress and the American public about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s findings, minimizing the Trump campaign's ties to Russian election interference in 2016… - His Department of Justice attempted to bury the whistleblower complaint that spurred the House’s impeachment inquiry into Trump and uncovered a shocking plot to undermine our democracy... - And he put the security of our elections in jeopardy by openly criticizing the decision to investigate foreign interference in our electoral process. The American people will no longer sit idly by as Attorney General Barr defends a president who has committed multiple impeachable offenses. We must call on Congress to take back our democracy -- by impeaching Attorney General Barr and removing him from office.

  • Stop war with Iran
    The Trump administration is leading the United States into an unnecessary and illegal war with Iran. Since day one of his presidency, Donald Trump has pushed our country towards a war with Iran. He filled his cabinet with warmongers like Mike Pompeo; pulled out of the historic and successful Iran nuclear deal; embarked on a “maximum pressure” campaign that sent thousands more U.S. troops to the Middle East; and imposed crippling economic sanctions on Iran. The assassination of Qassem Soleimani, a senior Iranian military leader, is just the latest unilateral action by this administration that has brought us to the brink of war. There is no greater urgency than right now, and we need you to get loud. Add your name and tell Congress to act immediately to stop a catastrophic war with Iran.

  • No War With Iran - Ask Congress to stand up and stop Trump's march to war
    Donald Trump and his administration made this reckless, history-altering decision with NO Congressional approval. His actions have put our entire country, including every American and allied troop in the region, at risk. If we enter into a war with Iran it could take the lives of thousands, even millions of people. As veterans, we have seen the destruction of a senseless war. There is no strategy, no reasoning, and no point to a war with Iran. That’s why we cannot allow Donald Trump to sign off this unnecessary bloodshed — Congress must take action and block this war.

  • Rename South Van Ness as Dolores Huerta Boulevard
    Dolores Clara Fernández Huerta is an American labor leader and civil rights activist who, with Cesar Chavez, is a co-founder of the National Farmworkers Association, which later became the United Farm Workers (UFW). Huerta helped organize the Delano grape strike in 1965 in California and was the lead negotiator in the workers' contract that was created after the strike. Huerta has received numerous awards for her community service and advocacy for workers', immigrants', and women's rights, including the Eugene V. Debs Foundation Outstanding American Award, the United States Presidential Eleanor Roosevelt Award for Human Rights and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. She was the first Latina inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame, in 1993. Huerta is the originator of the phrase, "Sí, se puede" (Yes, we can). As a role model to many in the Latino community, Huerta is the subject of many corridos (Mexican or Mexican-American ballads) and murals. In California, April 10 is Dolores Huerta day. It is also her birthday.

  • Fighting for fathers equal rights
    This cause is important because Father’s are portrayed to be deadbeat because the state takes all their money and doesn’t help enforce their visitation rights. These systems were put in place to help the people and to work for the people but instead, creates a cycle that only benefits the interest of the state. It is important and time we get our voices heard and that changes be made. Shared parenting is the best interest of the children’s. Children need both parents in their life. If you’re going to enforce Child Support Laws, then Visitation laws should also be enforced. Families need to be kept together because it can lead to many mental health issues. We need to break the cycle of fatherless homes. The system needs to put kids first. Shared parenting needs to be the default parenting plan. The OAG should not take child support to the point where it leaves noncustodial parents unable to be able to live. Im asking for help from the Texas Government to let our voices be heard. Don’t tear families apart. Parents want to be a part of their children’s lives.

  • Tell Washington House Republicans: Expel Matt Shea!
    An independent investigation commissioned by the Washington State House of Representatives found that Rep. Matt Shea planned and engaged in three armed conflicts against the United States government and advocates replacing the government with a theocracy and "the killing of all males who do not agree." This extremist behavior is unbecoming for a sitting state legislator. This is domestic terrorism and it must be condemned in the strongest way possible. The House Republican Caucus must send a strong rebuke of Rep. Shea by joining with Democrats to deliver a two-thirds majority required to expel Matt Shea from the legislature.

  • Andria's law
    My sister Andria Berger, like many others was killed and left on the side of the road to die. While the person who is usually drunk leaves the scene and benefits with receiving a 7 year maximum sentence. Taking someone's life should carry a higher sentence than gun and or drugs!
