We demand accurate, unbiased coverage of the president's executive action on immigration

Major television networks, like ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, MSNBC and CNN, have a great deal of influence on public policy. That's why we respectfully ask that your coverage of the President's executive action on immigration accurately portrays the true focus of the announcement. We ask that you refrain from using inflammatory footage that perpetuates harmful stereotypes. President Obama's action is about hard working people who having been living and working in the United States for years. To portray them in simple stereo types is dishonest. We ask that you rely on footage and images of those who are directly affected...

University of Hawaii: Ban single-use plastic water bottles!

With an influx of water refill "hydration stations" and a growing need for environmental stewardship on our campus, across the islands, and around the world, the UH Manoa community is calling for a ban on plastic water bottles. At least 65 campuses on the mainland alone have passed similar bans. Making bottles to meet America’s demand for bottled water uses more than 17 million barrels of oil annually, enough to fuel 1.3 million cars for a year, which does not include the oil used for transportation. It also takes 1.85 gallons of water to produce the single-use plastic water bottle...

Your SuperMom bravery is an inspiration to us all! Thousands of moms, dads, women, and men are standing with you today as you take your case to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Stand with Senator Murphy in Support of Diplomacy with Iran!

Congress must let diplomacy work with Iran. On November 13, Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) spoke on the Senate floor, arguing that "we are at a critical moment in negotiations with Iran," and S. 2650, a dangerous piece of anti-diplomacy legislation, could kill nuclear negotiations with Iran and leave war as the only option. I support Senator Murphy and urge you to also speak out in favor of negotiations.

Reverse the decision on Keystone XL

The Keystone XL crosses the Great Sioux Nation Treaty Lands. The Rosebud Sioux Tribe, a sovereign nation, objects to having KXL cross their lands. We contend that going ahead with KXL would be an unconscionable act of aggression against this nation and recommend that the decision authorizing KXL be reversed and dissolved.

Governor O'Malley: Ban fracking in Maryland

Governor O’Malley, the nation is watching. In your last two months as governor of Maryland, you have a unique opportunity to safeguard public health and the environment by keeping fracking out of the state. A ban on fracking in Maryland would set a strong example for elected officials around the country, one that promotes informed choices based on sound, independent science and places constituent safety and well-being first. What happens in Maryland impacts all of us. The time to ban fracking is now.

Save Zeus

Moreauville, Louisana, has placed a vicious dog ban against pit bulls and Rottweilers! On December 1, all pits and Rotts will be confiscated and taken to a local veterinary clinic to be disposed of. This ban should be lifted and Zeus, our family pet who just so happens to be a pit bull, should be saved and allowed to come back home where he belongs with his family!

Obama: Veto the Keystone XL Pipeline!

The proposed Keystone XL Pipeline would carry dangerous tar sands oil from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico and make billions for Big Oil companies. Tar sands oil has a massive carbon footprint and Keystone XL is a threat to our health and our climate. We urge you to reject this cynical political move and veto the Keystone XL Pipeline!


Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND). We voted for you to be our "Voice for Indian Country". Our voice is saying ,"No to the Keystone XL Pipeline". Honor the Treaties. Honor the U.S. Constitution. Mni Wiconi (Water is Life). Protect Our Water! ~Standing Rock Tribal Members, Indian Country, and Friends

Home Depot: Add Solar Panels To Store Rooftops!

Big Box stores have miles of flat rooftops. Other Big Box retailers, like Walmart, Costco, Kohls, Macys and IKEA, are adding solar panels to their store rooftops. Home Depot is not currently and does not have future plans to add solar panels to store rooftops, Why????

Petition to Mitch Mcconnell against nomination of Senator Inhofe for Environment and Public Works Committee

Dear Senator McConnell, The bi-partisan intentions that you recently expressed after your victory in the mid-term elections were encouraging to those concerned about the world we will bequeath to our children. Therefore, we the undersigned implore you to reconsider nominating Senator Inhofe as chair of the Environment and Public Works committee. Inhofe’s extremist rhetoric –such as labeling those citizens concerned about climate change as Nazis, or claiming that climate change is not in alignment with the Christian world view—are at best divisive and have no place in a bipartisan dialogue. According to a recent survey conducted by the Yale University...

Dear Congress: Don’t sabotage diplomacy with Iran

Please back President Obama's diplomatic approach to Iran. Now is not the time to undermine negotiations with calls for increased sanctions or unrealistic demands for a final deal. Don't lead us down a path that could lead to another senseless war in the Middle East.
