Sign Our Petition! Stop Trump From Firing Dr. Fauci!

Please immediately sign our petition in support of Dr. Anthony Fauci, our nation's top infectious disease expert. America is facing the most dire public health emergency in modern times. We need to keep Dr. Fauci on the job. President Trump, however, wants him gone!  Why? Because Dr. Fauci is refusing to go along with Donald Trump's lies.  Dr. Fauci cares about one thing -- keeping us safe. He is trying to tell us that ... COVID-19 is very real and very dangerous. We all need to wear masks. The situation is getting worse by the day. These are the facts. But Donald Trump wants to hear none of it. He wants Americans to believe everything is fine ... that he is the "perfect" President, just so he can get reelected. He doesn't care how many more people get sick or die. Even school children.  So he’s been laying the groundwork to do the unthinkable: Fire the one person in the Administration who's actually trying to save American lives. We have to say “No!" And if we don't speak up now, Dr. Fauci could be gone within the week. SIGN ON TO SAVE FAUCI.  Dr. Fauci is a national hero. He has advised six Presidents as Director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases on HIV/AIDS and many other domestic and global health issues. He was one of the principal architects of the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), a program that has saved millions of lives throughout the developing world. He oversees an extensive research portfolio of basic and applied research to prevent, diagnose, and treat established infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, respiratory infections, diarrheal diseases, tuberculosis and malaria as well as emerging diseases such as Ebola and Zika.  Over 135,000 Americans have already died from COVID-19. We need to keep Dr. Fauci on the job. PLEASE SIGN ON NOW TO SAVE DR. FAUCI!

Pass the Anti-Lynching Bill Now

Anti-Lynching legislation first made it's way into Congress in 1922. It was filibusters and never passed. Subsequently, the language of the 1922 Dyer Anti-Lynching Bill was the foundation of multiple Anti-Lynching Bills presented to Congress. All of which failed. June 2018, Senators Kamala Harris (D-CA), Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Tim Scott (R-SC) presented the Justice for Victims of Lynching Act. A bill that would make lynching a federal hate crime. It was voted on by the Senate but failed to be acted upon by the House. This past February 2020, the Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Bill was passed. It was introduced by Representative Bobby Rush (D-IL). Between the Justice for Victims of Lunching act and the Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Bill, it was assured that there would finally be measures taken against those that would commit such atrocious racial terrorism that has already claimed over 4,000 African American lives.  Today, this bill is still on hold as Sentor Rand Paul has objected to it's passing. He considers the language "too broad," despite the bill being accepted as a bipartisan effort. “Under the statute as written, bruises could be considered lynching. That’s a problem, to put someone in jail for 10 years for some kind of altercation. And it also I think demeans how horrible lynching actually was,” - Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) To that, I say to Senator: How dare you? Your opinion on the definition of lynching doesn't matter. Nobody asked you because you never had to go through it. If some escaped a lynching with a few minor bruises. They're still a lynching survivor. To only make lynching the most extreme case is the exact problem America has. America has constantly minimalized the experiences of Black Americans. You've generalized our history into oversimplified digestible chunks that you can spew when it serves you. That is why MLK's legacy is misappropriated. That is why we are told, "Slavery was long ago." 186 Black bodies were brutilized by lynching in the very state that you serve. Your opposition to this bill speaks volumes to the Black Kentuckians that you serve. Furthermore, you are using this bill as a prop for personal political visibility. You are bringing attention to yourself and your base on the 4,000 lynched Black bodies. You have zero grasp of the depth and range of lynchings in America. So, you DO NOT get to set the bar on what is too little and too great a definition of it is. You DO NOT get to be the tone police for this bill. It is best that you sit behind your desk, sign the bill and be quiet. With this petition I demand that you sign this bill into law. If Rand Paul insists on obstructing justice and a form of reconciliationfor Black Americans, I demand of Senator Mitch McConnell to bring it to the floor for a vote.

IMPEACHED TWICE: IT’S TIME TO REMOVE 45!

This campaign began on January 6, 2021 after I couldn’t stomach the insurrection at the Capitol, I had to do something, I dipped a toe before, but now I’m all in. 45 crossed a line even I didn’t think he was capable of, I started the petition to implore  Mike Pence to use the 25th Amendment and remove this man before he causes more harm.  On January 12, 2021, Mike Pence made a decision to stand by the man who’s words and actions caused an attempted coup, damaged the hall of Democracy and left 6 dead. Pence’s cowardice will only come back to bite him, but for now let’s tell 45 - “You’re Fired!”. After the domestic terrorist attack on the US Capitol building on January 6, 2021, spurned on by Donald Trump and Rudolph Guiliani’s inciting words at a rally earlier that day. Trump directed his followers to march to the Capitol, taking to heart Rudy’s “Trial by Combat” comment.  The aftermath of the damage from the breach is palpable, 6 lives lost, many, many Americans feeling like the appointed leader of our government is more than unfit to serve, but actually a criminal. He must be removed immediately! Today, we saw the worst of Americans and it will not be forgotten. The attack took the lives of 4 civilians, multiple law enforcement members injured and one Capitol Police Officer Dead. It didn’t need to happen, our democracy did not need this challenge. Please help in signing this petition, so we can send a message to Mike Pence and the leaders in Washington to let them know that we are disgusted and appalled by these actions by “Donald Trump’s Domestic Terrorists”. Nothing less than removal of his authority and presidential privilege will do at this point, the one person elected to protect the country above all others, very, very literally let the foxes into the henhouse and caused damage and destruction, leaving 6 people dead.

Save Net Neutrality Again November 2017.

People Responsible for this petition: Shameem Akhter, Anastasia Zellner, Marcus Mudano.   The Internet is a place where people can learn, entertain, teach, discuss, and do far more, but today, our Federal Government is working to roll back Net Neutrality rules on equal access. What is Net Neutrality? Net Neutrality is the idea that your acess to the internet, whether it is LTE or a wireless internet connection, is not altered or manipulated by Internet service providers (companies like AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, or BrightHouse that provide internet access.) Titles I and II of The Communications Act of 1934 give the FCC stronger enforcement and oversight over Internet service providers and their access to their customers’ activities on the Internet. If these rules and regulations are repealed, many Americans would have to deal with Internet Service providers impinging on their access to the websites they rely on. Why? 1. Internet Service providers are slowing down internet speed to websites that compete with them. 2. Internet Service Providers are blocking access to websites that compete with them.For a good example:http://money.cnn.com/2011/12/06/technology/verizon_blocks_google_wallet/index.htm These only begin to exemplify what can happen when regulations on Internet Service providers are removed. Many Americans will lose access to certain apps or websites because of Internet Service Providers. No matter what your political affiliation is, we can all agree that no American should have their internet access limited because of who they get their internet from. Together as Americans, we can tell the FCC not to repeal Net Neutrality, so that everyone can have access to the free internet. Heres what You can do to Help:  1. Sign this Petition: https://www.change.org/p/federal-communications-commission-save-net-neutrality-again 2. Sign this Petition: https://www.change.org/p/save-net-neutrality-netneutrality?source_location=discover_feed 3. Text “resist” to 50409 4.

We have spoke against the FCC and it worked in   June 2014  May 2017   This is the third time the American People have to say "Yes" to Net Neutrality. Please join us so we can tell for once and for all, "NO!"

Support the COVID-19 Pandemic Physician Protection Act (CPPPA)

Colleagues, Friends, and Family, By now, many of you have been personally affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.  In some households, it may be several family members, or even yourself.  As physicians and healthcare workers, we have been called to the frontline of this war against COVID-19, and we do not take this responsibility lightly.    However, we do need your support.  We need more tools and assurances in this fight against COVID-19.  After hearing the feedback of the grassroots physician community through online communities with membership totaling over 100,000 physicians, we have proposed the COVID-19 Pandemic Physician Protection Act (CPPPA), which outlines the areas where we need help the most.  Highlights include:  Ensuring that physicians and other healthcare workers have access to adequate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), protecting physicians from malpractice concerns that have arisen as a result of deviation from standard practices in order to protect patients from COVID-19 exposure, increasing access and removing restrictions for TeleHealth services, keeping our private practices financially solvent, ensuring mental health coverage for healthcare workers, canceling student loan debt, and creating provisions for our families if we die or become disabled during this pandemic.  Please take a moment to sign our petition, which will also supports our proposed legislation (the CPPPA).  We truly believe it will save lives - not only of physicians and other healthcare workers, but of patients throughout the United States of America.  Respectfully submitted, Nisha Mehta, MD Carlos Vital, MD Karla Vital, MD The full text of CPPPA can be seen at: https://drive.google.com/file/d/15ls6Mff-b5JV3uWA666Lxvo9JF1VVDEn/view?usp=sharing

Pass the ABLE Act

My name is Sara Wolff. I am a 31 year-old from Moscow, Pennsylvania, who happens to have Down syndrome but that doesn’t stop me from achieving “my” better life. I work as a law clerk and also at Keystone Community Resources in the Office of Advocacy. I am a board member of the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS). I'm calling on Congress to pass the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act (S. 313/H.R. 647), a bill that will help individuals with disabilities to save for their futures. When the ABLE Act passes into law this year, it will change my life forever. I lost my mother this past year, Connie, to a sudden, rapid illness. With my whole life ahead of me, I need an ABLE account to plan for my future. And, I am not alone, like most individuals with disabilities, people with Down syndrome and other conditions are out living their parents. Families, like mine, need to rest assure that they can equally care for their children and adults with disabilities, just like they can for their other children and family members. Just because I have Down syndrome, that shouldn’t hold me back from achieving my full potential in life. I can work a full-time job, be a productive member of society, and pay taxes – but because of these outdated laws placed on individuals with disabilities, we hold people like me back in life. This is the year, we call on leaders in Congress to put an end to the inequities that exist for people with disabilities by passing the ABLE Act and allowing individuals and families to save for the future and break down the barriers to employment for these individuals. I spoke last week during the NDSS gala in New York City about my personal lobbying efforts on the ABLE Act – before a large audience, I declared that I will be standing right next to President Obama when he signs the ABLE Act into law this year! The ABLE Act would amend Section 529 of the Internal Revenue Service Code of 1986 to create tax-free savings accounts for individuals with disabilities. The bill aims to ease financial strains faced by individuals with disabilities by making tax-free savings accounts available to cover qualified expenses such as education, housing, and transportation. The bill would supplement, but not supplant, benefits provided through private insurances, the Medicaid program, the supplemental security income program, the beneficiary’s employment, and other sources. An ABLE account could fund a variety of essential expenses for individuals, including medical and dental care, education, community based supports, employment training, assistive technology, housing, and transportation. The ABLE Act provides individuals with disabilities the same types of flexible savings tools that all other Americans have through college savings accounts, health savings accounts, and individual retirement accounts. The legislation also contains Medicaid fraud protection against abuse and a Medicaid pay-back provision when the beneficiary passes away. It will eliminate barriers to work and saving by preventing dollars saved through ABLE accounts from counting against an individual’s eligibility for any federal benefits program.  The ABLE Act was introduced into Congress on Feb. 13, 2013 by a bipartisan, bicameral set of Congressional Champions including Sens. Robert Casey, Jr., (D-PA) and Richard Burr (R-NC), and Reps. Ander Crenshaw (R-FL), Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), and Pete Sessions (R-TX). It currently has 325 cosponsors in the US House and 62 in the US Senate.

Stop denying earned survivor benefits to military surviving spouses

I am requesting support for over 65,000 military widows/ers whose spouses died on active duty, killed in action or in the line of duty or post retirement of a service caused disability or illness. We are the only widow/er in the entire federal government to be denied our full survivor benefits. Most of us are robbed of over $1,000 a month by the Dept of Defense as a result of an archaic law dating back to 1972. Congress over 20 years has failed to take care of those who sacrificed all.  My husband was serving his 30th year in the Navy when the F-18 he was riding in malfunctioned and crashed.  He was killed, and in a moment, my life changed forever. My three children, our families, and I were devastated and overcome with grief. Then I was horrified to discover that after they handed me the folded flag "on behalf of the President of the US and a grateful nation", that the Dept. of Defense was not very grateful in the least. I sacrificed my husband, my best friend, and the father of our 3 children, our sole provider, and now we were expected to also sacrifice financially!  We impacted surviving spouses need to change the law in order to receive our survivor benefits in full. It would be illegal for an insurance company to deny paying an insurance policy just because the beneficiary had another policy. But our government does this and Congress has failed for 20 years to fix this.  I need your help. 65,255 impacted military widows/ers need your help. Call your Congressman/woman and ask him/her to co-sponsor HR 553, the bill that will eliminate this unjust offset.  My husband’s earned survivor benefit insurance, the Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP), a insurance annuity, a benefit of employment that he earned, was not paid to me in full. When he died, I was informed that I would only be getting a fraction of the benefit I should have received. When I asked why, it was explained to me that those spouses who also were eligible to receive Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC), an entitlement paid from the Veterans Administration to indemnify or hold the government harmless for causing my husband's death, over 65,000 of us, will have their SBP survivor annuity insurance benefits offset dollar for dollar by DIC.  Full SBP payment is unfairly denied to those surviving spouses. This is known as the SBP-DIC offset, and we must fight to end it. This is a purchased insurance. It is not the norm for one insurance to not be paid just because the beneficiary has another policy. "This is the only insurance one purchases and then is legally prohibited from collecting." Senator Bill Nelson, former insurance commissioner for the state of Florida. When I lost my husband, I lost 78% of our household income. His pay stopped the day of his death. With 3 children, a mortgage, and no job, after moving 26 times, life was difficult. I don't want this to happen to anymore widows. Every widow of every new fallen hero is subject to this same denial of survivor benefits. The Dept. of Defense reduces the Survivor Benefit Plan, a form of insurance that pays a portion of retired pay to the surviving spouse and/or children by the amount I would receive in DIC, which holds the government harmless for causing my husband's death. DoD claims these are duplicative benefits, yet 100% disabled military retirees may receive all their military retired pay plus VA disability compensation. But when they die, their widow is "double dipping". Disability compensation ends with the death. DIC is currently $1319.04 per month. That is what DoD deducts from SBP, leaving most surviving spouses left with zero in SBP and only DIC. This is wrong. Today, most SBP-DIC offset surviving spouses receive DIC and zero in the earned and purchased SBP.  These surviving spouses deserve better from their country. I’m calling on Congress to provide surviving spouses with 100% of the Survivor Benefit Plan promised. Our government is reneging on a voluntarily PURCHASED insurance plan whose entire purpose is to ensure that surviving spouses are taken care of financially should the sponsor pre-decease her/him. When a servicemember makes the ultimate sacrifice, their family shouldn’t have to worry about how they will survive. As a Navy spouse, I was there for countless others who experienced loss. When I lost my husband, I realized how negligent the government bureaucracy is towards families who have paid the ultimate price. I want to be there for those families again. Hopefully, if we can gather enough petition support, the government will not ignore us. Congress will change the law. DoD will be prevented from making a windfall profit off of our spouse's deaths by not paying in full their survivor benefits.  Please sign the petition to end SBP-DIC offset for military surviving spouses and ask Congress to pass House Resolution HR 553, (Rep Joe Wilson, SC) and Senate bill S.622 (Senators Doug Jones, AL introduced with 28 original co-sponsors, the two bills to change the law and end this unjust forfeiture of what our spouses paid for with blood and income. Use the Capital Switchboard number to be connected to your Representative and both Senators and ask them to co-sponsor these bills. toll free: 866-272-6622

Mandatory sentencing for pedophiles/ child traffickers

This petition is for legislation that demands harsher and longer mandatory sentencing for child traffickers and pedophiles that prohibit reduction of sentences for over crowding, good behavior or parole. Offenders will receive automatic sentences that include incarceration and mandatory therapy. Possessing child pornography, or engaging in pedophilia will result in immediate incarceration and prohibit bail as these individuals should be considered both a flight risk and an imminent threat to society.  For possession of child porn there will be a mandatory 10 year sentence for each instance. Possessing 2 files will result in a 20 year mandatory sentence to be carried out to term. 10 instances will result in 100 years. For producing child porn the offender will receive a mandatory 20 years sentence for every instance. Engaging in sexual acts with a child will result in a minumim of 50 years per instance. Any pedophilia acts that engage in kidnapping the child will result in mandatory life sentence.  Any sexual acts resulting in the death of a child will be a mandatory life sentence to be served in full. Intentional death of a child will be a mandatory life sentence to be served in full. Profiting from or engaging in the trafficking of children will carry a 20 year minimum sentence per instance. Finally for the protection of the victims. There will be a mandatory restraining order for life against the offender unless the victim (after turning 18 years of age) decides otherwise. The victim will receive some form of therapy and counselling. Persons under the age of 18 cannot be tried in criminal courts for prostitution charges as they are victims of traffickers. Mandatory drug treatment counselling if that victim was drugged as a result of being trafficked. Redact legislation that charges individuals who report child enticement from online forums with entrapment or stalking. Charge offenders with a mandatory 5 year sentence for each instance of trying to entice a child via social media, email or text. Harsher sentencing and more victim advocacy with a no tolerance policy will  send a grave message to those who view children as a mere commodity to exploit and subjugate. The effects of trauma will affect a child for the rest of their lives often resulting in drug addiction, unhealthy relationships, low self image and high risk for suicide. Children are our most precious resource and we must all act to ensure a generation that doesn't need to recover from their childhood.  View the story that inspired this petition: #justiceforbabyjames #justice4karaskids https://www.facebook.com/Justice4KarasKids/

Open Letter to Senator Mitch McConnell on the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act

The Honorable Mitch McConnellUS Senate Majority LeaderUS Capitol BuildingWashington DCThe United States Dear Leader McConnell,  As supporters of human rights and democracy, with deep concern for the dire humanitarian situation in Hong Kong, the Citizens’ Press Conference strongly urge for the passage of the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act (S.1838) in the Senate. The Citizens' Press Conference is a platform on which ordinary citizens and protesters express their opinions safely under the white terror that currently shrouds Hong Kong. We work to recover and amplify these lost voices from the mainstream narrative dominated by the authorities and pro-Beijing media, as well as to retrieve and broadcast the truth of the on-the-ground situation to counteract the Hong Kong and Beijing Governments' falsified discourse. Our friends at 'Freedom Hong Kong', as a team, also work diligently on the international front in promoting awareness on Hong Kong's current dire straits across the globe. Jointly, we are writing to urgently request that you schedule a vote in the Senate for the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act immediately. The Hong Kong Police’s brutality against us is escalating sharply. We are losing our eyes, ears, limbs, and for some of us, lives. The crackdowns we saw during the weekend of November 2nd and 3rd on peaceful and lawful rallies are indicative of a change of tactic by the authorities to restrict our rights to demonstrate peacefully, as well as our electoral rights as the attacks by the police were also directed at our pro-democracy district council election candidates. In the morning of November 4th, a university student fell to his demise from the 3rd floor of a car park at a private housing estate onto the 2nd floor whilst trying to get away from the tear gas, which the police fired into the building in a frenzy; he was wearing only plain clothing at the time of his injury with no protective gear at hand. He was only 22. Many more cases of human right abuse by the police have occurred throughout the past months: cases of rape of detainees by the police have been confirmed and identified; unwarranted arbitrary arrests have been made of ordinary civilians at private properties; the police are aiming their projectile and chemical warfare at head level at civilians and journalists; the police have also blatantly declared to young civilians under arrest that they would appreciate throwing them into a detention center and rape them for fun, and beating them to death and discard their bodies into the waters. On top of the bodily abuse, Hong Kongers are also subject to extreme psychological distress on a daily basis from witnessing scenes of traumatizing events, either through social media livestreams, or when they personally take part in protests. According to our own research on the mental health of participants in the Movement, for which we have received over 43,000 responses, 36.7% of our respondents showed significant PTSD symptoms that warrant further clinical assessment. When we focus our analysis on the frontliners, who regularly confront the police and sustain a much higher exposure to police brutality, 55.1% of this group showed significant PTSD symptoms. It is worth noting that the normal prevalence rate of PTSD among Syrian refugees is just above 30%. Hong Kongers have been cornered in our rights to speak and demonstrate – we now need to risk our lives to attend even peaceful and lawful assemblies. This is all part of the authorities’ plan to upscale their crackdown and indiscriminate arrest operations, with the brutality calibrated not to evoke international attention. Even more ominously, the PRC Government proclaims that it will roll out “national security” steps, which is a code word for large-scale suppression in Hong Kong: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/31/world/asia/hong-kong-protests-china.html We are grateful to the 37 US Senators who are cosponsors of the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act. We are grateful to the US House of Representatives for passing the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act by “unanimous consent” on October 15th, 2019. We are grateful to your eloquently expressed support for the people of Hong Kong. Please translate your words into immediate action by scheduling a vote for the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act in the Senate, before more of us lose even more body parts, and our lives. With highest urgency, Co-signed by The Citizens' Press ConferenceFreedom Hong Kong

The time to EXPEL Sen. Josh Hawley - MO from the United States Senate is NOW!

The time to EXPEL Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley from the Senate has come.  1) Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley should be immediately EXPELLED from the U.S. Senate.  He has violated his oath, stoked a violent mob of domestic terrorists and attempted to tear down our democracy.  Hawley was soliciting campaign funds while our nation's Capitol was under attack and people were dying.  He is a despicable, self-serving, deplorable, insurrectionist. 2) As reported in the KC Star, Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley became the first senator to say he’ll object to the certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory when Congress meets on Jan. 6 to accept the results of the presidential election. Hawley cited unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud and accused the state of Pennsylvania of failing to adhere to its election laws by extending the deadline for mail-in ballots, an argument that has repeatedly been rejected by federal courts.  He held up the Electoral College Vote Certification process twice with his unfounded conspiracy theories, offering zero evidence to support his claims. 3) Josh Hawley lied when he tweeted that a "candle-light vigil for democracy" at his home in Virginia as "Antifa scumbags came to our place in DC and threatened my wife and newborn daughter, who can’t travel. They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door."  Video evidence shows that nothing of the sort happened.  The dozen or so protestors chanted, sang and prayed outside his home, but exhibited no violence, threats or vandalism of any sort. 4) Sen. Josh Hawley doesn't even live in Missouri.  A review of property records shows that the first-term Republican is no longer a Missouri homeowner and that he is registered to vote at his sister’s home in Ozark, MO, while he is in-between homes in the state. He has alternately told the press he is living with his parents in Springfield, MO. Hawley owns a $1.3 million house in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C., where he spends most of his time with his wife, Erin Hawley, and their three children. 5) Two separate MO audits found that in Hawley's short tenure as Missouri’s attorney general there were many paperwork and management problems that may have cost taxpayers unnecessary amounts of money. Taxpayer-paid staff working in former Attorney General Josh Hawley’s office met with his political consultants, perhaps more than a dozen times, in the months before he launched his U.S. Senate campaign in 2017. Several instances of travel related abuses noted that Hawley used a state vehicle and a driver for some trips without documenting the purpose of the trip. One cited example was that a driver told the auditor that on Dec. 16, 2017, he drove Sen. Hawley and his wife, Erin, to Kansas City for a Chiefs football game. 6) Former U.S. Sen. John C. Danforth on Thursday, following the domestic terrorist attacks on the U.S. Capitol building, said to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: "Supporting Josh and trying so hard to get him elected to the Senate was the worst mistake I ever made in my life. Yesterday was the physical culmination of the long attempt (by Hawley and others) to foment a lack of public confidence in our democratic system. It is very dangerous to America to continue pushing this idea that government doesn’t work and that voting was fraudulent." Josh Hawley is seditious and self-serving. Hawley has blood on his hands for fomenting rioting at the U.S. Capitol. He is dishonest and is not upholding the oaths and ethics of his elected offices. Sen. Hawley tried to subvert and undermine the Will of the People by overturning the results of the 2020 Presidential Election. Time to EXPEL Josh Hawley. NOW!
