STOP ISSUING NIGHTTIME NOISY CONSTRUCTION PERMITS! Please stop harassing and harming the health of residents by allowing the Department of Building Inspections to prioritize the profits and project schedule timeline of construction work in the middle of the night over the health, safety, and well-being of the thousands of residents.

Climate Change Solutions Cannot Include Fracking

Climate change is the issue of our time, so we support your decision to take executive action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. However, the window to save our planet from climate catastrophe is rapidly closing. Therefore any action taken must be swift and meaningful. The EPA proposed power plant rules set inadequate targets, fail to aggressively promote renewable energy, and by encouraging the expanded use of natural gas from fracking could actually make matters worse. Methane, the main ingredient of natural gas, is 86 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide over 20 years – the time...

Seriously, Jimmy John’s? Stop trying to make it impossible for your workers to find new jobs!

We call on Jimmy John’s to end their oppressive non-compete policy that prevents sandwich makers and cooks from getting jobs at any place that makes sandwiches even years after leaving the company.

Stop Unfair Implementation of School Zone Speed Cameras

We petition the Nassau County Legislature for a moratorium, and the courts for leniency, in the administration of fines and penalties assessed under the recently enacted school zone speed camera policy until a fair and compassionate system can be put into operation.

Tell President Obama: Stand up to Big Oil and stop exploding oil trains!

Over the last several years, the oil and rail industries have brought the growing threat of hazardous, flammable oil trains into the Main Streets and downtowns of millions of Americans.
