Congress: Reject Trump's racism

Reject Trump's racism and all the policies that stem from it. Pass a clean Dream Act now, repeal the Muslim Ban, and protect from deportation those who had been covered by the Temporary Protected Status program that Trump is determined to end.

Help immigrant families who fled violence and disaster!

The Temporary Protected Status (TPS) program allowed me to stay in the United States to seek safety from violence from in El Salvador where I was born. As a working mother of four children who were born in the United States, I am calling on Congress to find a permanent bipartisan solution to protecting the 320,000 immigrants with TPS. Please sign my petition to ensure families like mine are not ripped apart and sent back to nations devastated by disasters and violent wars.

Implore Democrats to Boycott the State of the Union Address

In light of the president's incendiary, racist and un-American comments regarding Haiti and Africa, we call on the entire Democratic Party to stand in unity and opposition to the 45th President of the United States and the complicit GOP by boycotting the SOTU address on January 30th. WE WILL NOT TOLERATE RACISM IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Congress: Release the Fusion GPS transcripts

Three Congressional committees have heard over 21 hours of testimony from Fusion GPS, the firm that commissioned the collection of intelligence reports about Donald Trump’s ties to Russia. Much maligned by the President, some GOP members of Congress and the right wing media, it is time to set the record straight. Congress should release transcripts of the Fusion GPS testimony, so that the American people can learn the truth about its work and most important, what happened to our democracy.

Don't let Trump rig the Census!

We rely on the U.S. Census so our government can fairly represent all of us -- and so government agencies can base their decisions on data and facts. We can’t allow a politically motivated question about citizenship skew the results of the 2020 Census, or intimidate any American -- citizen or not -- out of speaking up to be counted.

Congress: Subpoena Donald Trump’s Financial Records

The recently published testimony of Glenn Simpson, founder of Fusion GPS, alleges that President Trump has massive conflicts of interest with several foreign banks, businesses and governments. We the People need a full disclosure of the Trump organization’s financial records.

Demand Healthy School Lunches

Sonny Perdue, Trump's new USDA Secretary, has rescinded Obama Era rules for healthy school lunches. Children will now be served more refined sugar and saturated fat; two food additives known to cause health problems later in life. Demand this decision be reversed.

Call for Eric Greitens to resign as Governor of Missouri

We believe that Eric Greitens' unlawful manipulation of the state Board of Education, his willingness to take donations from human traffickers, his poor record on women's issues, and the hypocrisy of his own extramarital affairs make this man unfit for the office of Governor.

Drilling Off Of the New Jersey Coast

President Trump has given the okay for oil/gas drilling off of our valuable coastline. We need enough signatures to try and stop this due to the harm it will cause to marine wildlife, recreation, fishing, beach nesting birds and tourism. We know that all drilling operations have leaks that cannot be quickly and efficiently contained, and will ruin/destroy everything we love about our coastline. Since the President enjoys time in the great state of Florida, he should understand our concerns very well about such a fragile ecosystem.

No Offshore Drilling in Massachusetts Waters

We call on Ryan Zinke to drop Massachusetts from the list of possible offshore drilling sites. Considering we can create far more renewable energy with wind, solar, and other green energy sources there is no reason whatsoever to pursue an environmentally destructive method of extracting an obsolete fuel source. We urge Mr. Zinke to remove us from his list; we do not want offshore drilling here or any other section of US coastline. We shouldn't even be considering this.

Censure Pres. Trump's Racist Anti-Immigrant Remarks

On Thursday, January 11, in an Oval Office meeting with members of Congress discussing immigration from Haiti, El Salvador, and Africa, Pres. Trump asked "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" Congress must formally censure the President in order to decisively and publicly dissociate the Congress and the people of the United States from this noxiously racist comment, which is beneath the dignity of the office of President and not reflective of our cherished national traditions.

VICTORY: Tribune Papers Spared From Koch Empire

When the Tribune Company went up for sale, it was widely reported that the Koch brothers were interested in acquiring its newspapers - including the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune.
