Tell the DNC: Reject gun, tobacco, payday lender, and other corporate donations counter to our values!

Our daughter, Jessi, was slaughtered in the Aurora, Colorado theater massacre in 2012. We believe the gun lobby and other corporate interests have far too much influence in American politics so we support a proposed resolution to the DNC to take a step towards fixing this broken system. With the DNC set to convene this week in Las Vegas — just weeks after one of the most deadly mass shootings in modern American history — we are asking the DNC to reject all contributions from the those who profit from guns, tobacco, predatory payday loans, and other nefarious industries!

Pass a clean Dream Act now

Congress must deliver a clean Dream Act to provide legal protections for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants so cruelly impacted by the Trump administration's decision to end the popular Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Condemn Trump's attack on the free press

I reject President Trump’s suggestion that news outlets should lose their broadcast licenses for criticizing him -- and all of his attacks on the press freedom our democracy relies on. Journalists have a duty to hold those in power accountable -- and they must know that the American people will stand in solidarity with them as long as they continue to do so.

NRA GIFTS TO REP. ISSA

As your constituents we demand that you stop accepting gifts from the NRA and donate the large donations you have accepted to victims of the recent massacre, as well as work diligently on eliminating rapid firing guns and non hunting ammunition, such as those which were used in the Las Vegas shootings.

Martha McSally -- end the NRA's control over congress

Martha McSally -- the entire USA needs relief from endless acts of gun violence. Please stop taking the NRA's funding for your vote, use your conscience, and donate whatever money you've already received from the NRA to families who have suffered because of guns in the hands of the wrong people or to charities that help families who have suffered.

Kurt Schrader: Stop the NRA

We encourage Senator Schrader to donate the amount of money the NRA spent on his behalf and commit to not taking another cent from the NRA. We need a Representative who will draft and work hard to pass an assault weapons and semi-automatics ban with a buy-back. We should leave some of these guns at gun ranges for those who really love to shoot them.

Tom McClintock - Give back $52842 in NRA contributions

The National Rifle Association has contributed large amounts of money to many members of Congress, including my Representative, Tom McClintock. Rep. McClintock received $52842 in support from the NRA and members of its staff. The NRA's financial hold on our Congress is overwhelming, and it is one of the primary reasons why, in the wake of national tragedies, we cannot pass common sense gun legislation. I am calling on you as my representative of the California 4th District, Rep. Tom McClintock, to donate the amount of money the NRA spent on their behalf and commit to not taking another cent...

Jaime Herrera-Butler STOP taking NRA $

Jaime Herrera-Butler has received $95298 in campaign donations. If she truly cares about the lives of herself, her constituents and their children, she MUST return this blood money and REFUSE any further contributions. Please sign it if you agree and please contact her directly as well.

Donate NRA Contributions to Charity

We have just experienced the worst mass murder incident in our history, carried out by a lone gunman with modified firearms. What will it take to get Congress to enact sensible and responsible gun regulations? The first thing would be to STOP taking political contributions from the NRA. And the contributions they have already received should be DONATED TO CHARITY.

Give back NRA blood money

State Rep Mike Coffman has taken over $104,000 in campaign donations from the NRA, which is a tool of the firearms industry, who lobbies for silencers and high capacity magazines. We call on Coffman to give back the money.

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.
