Stop the Use of Lethal M-44 "Cyanide Bombs" to Kill Native Wildlife!

Dear Mr. Wheeler and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Please cancel the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act registration for sodium cyanide, the active lethal ingredient in M-44 “cyanide bombs” during the pending registration review. M-44s are indiscriminate, inhumane, and unnecessary wildlife killing devices that poison and kill non-target animals, including pet dogs and endangered species. Continued use of M-44s is having devastating impacts on humans, pets, and wildlife. Earlier this year, the EPA issued a proposed interim decision renewing sodium cyanide registration despite more than 99.9 percent of public comments urging the EPA to ban M-44s. Even though the...

Shut down the Trump administration's concentration camps

No matter the year, who is President, or what we call these places, we must end the practice of putting human beings in concentration camps. Thousands of people—including children—are suffering from illnesses and disease, living off slimy and rotting deli meat, and being separated from their families with no promise of reunification or future assistance. Politicians want to hide the severity of this debasement, dehumanization, and death behind media-friendly talking points but we must call out this exploitation of human beings for what it is. ProPublica reported on a private Facebook group for border agents where agents are discussing their...

Save the Kurds!

As you know, this criminal administration has abandoned one of our greatest allies, the Kurds, in the fight against ISIS. #CriminalTrump has abandoned the Kurds after a call to Turkish President Erdogan. We need to demand that Congress does something immediately to protect the Kurdish people.

Produce Bank Cards out of Ocean Plastics and/or Recycled Materials

As you may know, American Express has began launching bank cards being produced from ocean plastics.

Help the Syrian Kurds

I am sickened by our betrayal of the Syrian Kurds. They have fought hard to protect their homeland and have made the world a safer place by fighting alongside our soldiers to fight and contain ISIS; In return, we have left them open to ethnic cleansing. I am calling upon local activists to come out in their support.

Protect the Sonoran Desert Tortoise from Extinction!

Dear President Trump, The Sonoran desert tortoise needs legal protection to escape extinction. In 2010, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service found in a preliminary assessment the tortoise was warranted for endangered species protections. Despite yearly studies in the years following that confirmed the same findings, the Service reversed its position in a 2015 assessment. This assessment failed to consider science on climate change and livestock grazing, along with multiple other factors negatively impacting the tortoise. Please reconsider your decision using the best available science and list the Sonoran desert tortoise as a protected species under the Endangered Species Act.

Stop USA arms, soldiers and nuclear technology from moving to Saudi Arabia. Remember who financed 9-11

Saudi Arabian monies financed the 9-11 attack on the USA. Why have we all forgotten this? Today Saudi Arabia's record on human rights, on Women's rights, on oppressive actions against other Middle Eastern Countries as well as those who expose their actions is inhumane. Yet Donald Trump is sending our soldiers, our monies, our military and now even NUCLEAR TECHNOLOGY (for bomb building), to Saudi Arabia in exchange for real estate deals, bribes from USA companies who will profit from these actions and he does not for one second listen to Congress, his advisers or the USA people. We, The...

Tell Congress: Impeach Now

In the United States, no one is above the law. Congress must begin impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump immediately for his abuse of power and violation of public trust.

Ban the Import of Trophy-hunted Lions

For the first time since lions were protected under the Endangered Species Act, the Trump administration has approved a trophy-import permit for a threatened lion killed in Tanzania. Thankfully, the House Natural Resources Committee just approved the Conserving Ecosystems by Ceasing the Importation of Large Animal Trophies (CECIL) Act to ban U.S. imports of elephant and lion trophies from Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Send a letter today urging Congress to approve the CECIL Act.

Protect Wildlife Corridors

Please show your support for wildlife being afflicted by habitat loss, fragmentation, and climate change by taking action as a co-sponsor of the Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act.

Act to stop Trump admin's scary farm worker proposal

I am writing this comment on behalf of our nation's farm workers whose hard work makes it possible for us to have food on our table every day. The Trump DOL's proposed changes to rules governing the H-2A agricultural guestworker program would make it easier to deny jobs to our nation's current farm workers so employers can hire more temporary foreign field laborers and pay them less. It would depress pay for domestic workers and reduce existing protections for both domestic and foreign workers. The federal government indicates more than half of farm workers are U.S. citizens or legal permanent...

VICTORY: Tribune Papers Spared From Koch Empire
