Call on President-Elect Trump to Condemn Hate Crimes Done in His Name
On November 9th, 2016 Shaun King began documenting the hate crimes and hate speech that are direct results of the 2016 election decision. These assaults are dangerous, divisive, violent, illegal and un-American. You can read about them here (trigger warning to survivors): https://twitter.com/ShaunKing As our new President-elect, we are calling on Donald J Trump to personally and publicly condemn all physical and verbal assaults committed in his name or as a reaction to his victory.

Commute Paul Manafort's sentence
Paul Manafort verdict: 5 counts tax fraud: Guilty 2 counts bank fraud: Guilty 1 count failure to disclose foreign bank account: Guilty 10 counts: Jury unable to reach consensus Manafort did commit multiple crimes—he is guilty, but he was pursued maliciously after it was found that he did not collude with Russia to subvert the 2016 American presidential election. We don't do malicious prosecution in America — or we shouldn't. Investigations shouldn't be a fishing expedition looking for crimes. President Trump should consider commuting Manafort's sentence. This wouldn't be a pardon, but a commutation. Let's restore our legal system. Bob Mueller shouldn't be picking winners and losers.

Real people NEED The ACA-Obamacare. Don't play politics with people's health and lives.
****UPDATE**** 10/30/2017. My wife received her 2018 ACA insurance plan renewal proposal today. Her proposed premium has gone from $459.17 per month to $1,187.45 per month. For the first time in her life, it seems she may not be able to afford health insurance. This increase is just Insane! STOP playing politics with peoples lives!!! ********************************************************************************************************** My wife has pre existing conditions. Before the blessing that is Obamacare came along, because of those life altering pre existing conditions, we were only able to afford a health insurance policy that had a $10,000 deductible at a very high monthly premium. She couldn't afford to see doctors regularly and her health deteriorated. I remember counting the days to Obamacare and spending most of the night, and many frustrating days following, struggling to sign up, and once we did, the smile on my wife's face, the sigh of relief that she too can see a doctor, and there was hope. I remember tears of relief and hope. We celebrated the peace of mind this brought us with a hug, a smile and a good nights sleep. Today, there are tears again, fear instead of hope, anxiety instead of peace of mind, worries and sleepless nights (it is 3:42 am as I write this). I hear politicians exclaiming, speaking indignantly, waving their fists and wagging their tounges all preaching about what will happen when 25,000,000 get cut and have no insurance, the outcry there will be.....well, we are those 25,000,000, we are each a human being , not a number. You know us, we are your family member, your neighbor, your Uber driver, your friend, your classmate from years ago, your acquaintance of today.... STOP using our plights for political fodder and for so much fist waving and speechifying! STOP being resigned to the fact that there are not enough Democrats in the Senate to stop this lunacy and reach out to Republican Senators who are thinking individuals and STOP the insanity! Senators McConnel and Schumer, do the hard work that is your job and that you know how to do so well and make it known that this end of Obamacare tragedy and travesty will NOT happen. Don't let us suffer with anxiety and sleepless nights and worse ! For my wife, who is asleep as I write this while I am up worrying about her health and healthcare, for all of us , each one of us, real people - not numbers, DON'T wait to see and hear the outcry when 25,000,000 are left without insurance! Do the hard work of bringing sanity back now. Our health, and our healthcare is not, and should not be a partisan issue! DON'T LEAVE 25,000,000 PEOPLE WITHOUT HEALTH INSURANCE TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS. SAVE OBAMACARE/ The Affordable Care Act! PS: If you say there will be insurance available for those with pre existing conditions, you know that premiums for those with any pre existing condition will go back to being astronomically expensive and unaffordable and high risk pools are either unavailable, most don't meet criteria eligibility, and those that do see high costs and even higher deductibles.
Petition to Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg
Facebook Must Inform Users How They Were Exposed to Russian Propaganda
Facebook enabled Russian interference in the United States election in 2016, but refuses to provide a full account to the public. In fact, it has recently removed data that allowed independent researchers to understand the nature and scale of the problem. American citizens that use Facebook deserve to know how they were exposed to Russian disinformation and propaganda. Facebook should provide this data to users in an application that makes it easy to understand. Users should be able to see how content and advertising messages from identified Russian sources appeared in their timeline, whether they interacted with such media, and basic metrics that quantify their exposure.
