In 2016, this was Sen. Mitch McConnell’s statement on the death of Justice Antonin Scalia and President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court: "The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president." We demand that this Congress refuse to seat a Supreme Court justice until after the American people have a voice in the mid-term elections.

Is Trump stealing much needed FEMA funds to make his "for profit" private tent-city donors rich ? While there are fewer unaccompanied immigrant children than in past years, the expansion of this cruel & inhumane program is expanding like never before. Please sign & request the Senate order an investigation of this probable impropriety and reunite these families NOW! Thank you.

Tell the National School Boards Association: No More Monsanto Roundup Weedkiller!

As the organization representing the top decision-makers at U.S. school districts, you have a responsibility to millions of parents and school children to protect children from harm. In light of the latest evidence that Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller causes cancer, the National School Board Association must do these two things: One, issue a formal policy statement advising all school districts to end the use of Roundup and all toxic agro-chemicals on school grounds. Two, issue a formal policy statement advising all school districts to revamp their school lunch programs by transitioning to certified organic foods, in order to avoid serving foods...

Do everything in your power to ensure that Mueller cannot be fired or removed and that the investigation will continue regardless of Trump's attempts to stop it.

Tell DHS Secretary Nielsen: STOP the expansion of family detention at the U.S. border

Dear Secretary Nielsen, I join Physicians for Human Rights in calling on you to end efforts to expand family detention through the dismantling of protections provided under the Flores v. Reno settlement. PHR has previously called on you to immediately halt the separation of families at the U.S. -Mexico border and on your colleague Secretary Azar to reunite separated parents and children without delay. A permanent end to the family separation practice is no justification for jailing children indefinitely. The physical and mental health harms of detention have been proven time and again. Jailing children is cruel and inhumane –...

Dear Senator, In August, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced it was rolling back a 2014 decision to phase out use of neonicotinoid pesticides on refuge land. This phase-out was a critical step in helping protect bees and other pollinators that are essential to our food system. It is estimated that in 2014 alone, farmers and ranchers operating in wildlife refuges sprayed over half a million pounds of highly toxic pesticides like bee-killing neonics. I’m deeply alarmed by this decision and urge you to provide oversight to reverse this decision and reinstate the phase-out of neonics. Research confirms that...

The Trump Administration has taken $169 million dollars from agencies including FEMA, TSA, the U.S. Coast Guard to detain and deport immigrants. Tell them to give the money to agencies that need it for hurricane response and recovery efforts.

Brett Kavanaugh lied repeatedly and extensively about receiving stolen emails in his hearings for an appellate court judgeship and again in his Supreme Court nomination hearings. He should be impeached for perjury, removed from his appellate seat, and banned from holding federal office for life.

End Support for Genocide in Palestine

For decades US administrations, Republican or Democrats, have supported Israel as it conducts an illegal occupation of Palestine. Palestinians are being systematically strangled in what should be understood as genocide. The undersigned oppose this support of the brutal Netanyahu government and its open repression of the Palestinians.

Tell DeVos: Arm Schools with Resources, Not Guns

Arming teachers is not a solution to school shootings. Educators want to teach, not be armed at school. Students and parents want schools to be safe and welcoming places. Using federal funds intended for academic and enrichment opportunities to pay for arming teachers only helps gun manufacturers, not the people you were appointed to protect as education secretary. I demand that you immediately halt these plans and use the Title IV funds for what they were intended: providing a well-rounded education, improving school conditions for learning and improving the use of technology for digital literacy.

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.
