Fox Business: Don't Invest in a Regime that Murders Journalists

To: Fox Business News: According to news reports, the Saudi government may have murdered Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi. We urge you to take the following immediate actions: 1) End your sponsorship and participation in Saudi Arabia's Future Investment Initiative conference, following the lead of the New York Times, CNBC, CNN, and others. 2) Stand up for freedom of speech in Saudi Arabia and call on the Saudi monarchy to reveal what happened to Khashoggi and where he or his body currently is. 3) Take a stand against the Saudi government's brutal bombardment of thousands of civilians in Yemen.

Stop Trump's trampling on the rights of transgender people

We #WontBeErased. The Trump administration wants to roll back the legal construct of what gender is, to make it so that gender is defined as a "biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth." This spits in the face of science, it spits in the face of every transgender person, and it spits in the face of children who were just starting to feel safe to explore their gender identities. Transgender people suffer enough bullying that we don't need it from the government too. Lawmakers need to stop being allowed to decide how Americans are allowed to define themselves.

House Representatives - We urge you to co-sponsor Mr. Takano's Resolution to REBUILD THE VA - NOT PRIVATIZE IT

Dear House Representative: I urge you to co-sign Rep. Mark Takano's H.R. 1025 to build a robust Veterans Affairs (VA) healthcare administration. I fell Pres. Trump and special interests are privatizing the healthcare of America's veterans. The veteran survey by the VFW reveals that 92% of vets using the VA want VA healthcare FIXED Not PRIVATIZED. Please review Mr. Takano's October Dear Colleague letter entitled "Cosponsor Resolution H.R. 1025 Supporting a Robust Veterans Health Administration Endorsed by: AFGE, The American Legion, AMVETS, DAV." I think it is very important for you as my House Representative to support our veterans in...

Tell ICE to grant Nelson Pinos a stay so he may return HOME to his family!

Nelson Pinos has lived in the US for 26 years. He’s a homeowner and father of 3 US citizen children. He’s a New Haven, CT taxpayer who worked in the same factory for many years- until the Department of Homeland Security told him to return to Ecuador 3 1/2 weeks before Christmas last year. Nelson has lived in a church in sanctuary ever since. It's been over 10 months.

Senate, Don't Send a Fossil Fuel Shill to FERC!

Trump nominated Bernard McNamee to fill Robert Powelson's vacancy at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. McNamee is a pro-fossil fuel idealogue who wrote in his Earth Day op-ed for The Hill this year that fossil fuels "have dramatically improved the human condition – and continue to do so". Don't put him in charge of approving natural gas pipelines and LNG terminals and regulating the energy market. We are out of time.

Stop ICE from stealing our Freedom of Speech and Right to Assemble

Our constitutional rights such as freedom of speech and the right to assembly are under attack by the rogue agency known as ICE. Nationally, ICE has been accused of retaliating against immigrant-rights activists. Multiple activists, including New York's Ravi Ragbir and Jean Montrevil, Wisconsin's Ricard Fierro, and Arizona's Alejandra Pablos have been detained within the past 12 months. All four say they were detained because of their activism.* More recently in my community of South Florida, two activists were prevented from helping immigrants after a protest. This is a clear violation of our constitutional rights and another example of the...

Protect journalists from physical attack by POTUS & pals

Mr. Trump has tried to excuse the murder of journalist Khashoggi by Saudi prince, has praised a Congressman who beat up a reporter, & has protected a Secret Service agent who physically attacked a reporter. This behavior endangers the lives of individual journalists and the life of democracy in and beyond America. Congress must put a stop to it.
