Millions of Voices Against Citizens United, You in?

Dear Senators and Representatives of the 114th Congress: I add my name to the millions of Americans calling on you to support and pass a constitutional amendment to ensure lawmakers have the authority to protect the voice of the voter from getting drowned out by big money, and place common sense limits on corporate, special interest and big donor influence in elections.

Racist McDonald's Bosses FIRE 10 Workers. Not OK.

McDonald's: "There are too many black people in the store" should NEVER be an acceptable reason for workers at your stores to be fired. Ensure NO ONE ELSE who works for you is racially harassed, and pay the 10 workers in South Boston, Virginia, fired on racist grounds, back pay and damages today.

Make Free Community College an American Reality

The United States has always been at the forefront of education. We were the first country to make public schooling a right available to all, an investment that drove our country to greatness and made the American Dream possible. But in today’s economy, we need to expand that promise. Higher education and an advanced degree are the key to building a workforce that's the best in the world and expanding our middle class.

NAVY JETS TARGET WORLD HERITAGE SITE: OLYMPIC NATIONAL FOREST & PARK, ENDANGERED SPECIES, RESIDENTS & ENVIRONMENT COLLATERAL DAMAGE

http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/28009-documents-show-navy-s-electromagnetic-warfare-training-would-harm-humans-and-wildlife 36 supersonic Growler jets will fly 2,900 training exercises for 8-16 hours/day, 260 days/year, conducting 11 “training events” and siting 3 mobile radiation emitters in 15 different locations—all critical habitats for endangered species in the Olympic National Forest—and the airspace over the Olympic National Park, a pristine rain forest.

WA bill threatens consumers' right to know

House Bill 1104, if passed, will make it a crime for workers to document animal abuse on Darigold dairies and other farms. It will also make it a crime for organizations concerned about animal abuse, food safety and even worker rights to bring these issues to the public's attention. This is plain wrong. Workers should be rewarded, not criminalized for bringing issues to our attention, especially if their employers fail to take corrective action and instead, threaten and fire those workers who speak out. I call on Darigold to publicly oppose this anti-worker, anti-animal and anti-consumer legislation. I look forward...

This petition requests that the Supreme Court of Missouri, which has jurisdiction over this matter, hold hearings to determine whether Bob McCulloch is guilty of gross prosecutorial misconduct in his handling of grand jury deliberations in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

Don't Fast Track "free trade" agreements.

We are opposed to giving President Obama Fast Track Authority that would undermine the ability of Congress to have a voice in trade agreements. We urge you to vote against Fast Track and to make the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiating process transparent and accountable to the people. "Free Trade" agreements aren't free and they aren't about trade any more, they impact Maine & American sovereignty.
