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.
Petition to Hon. Gonzalo P. Curiel
Stop Trump From Postponing His Trial Date of November 28
Trump wants to postpone his trial against Trump University. It's been reported that lawyers for President-elect Donald Trump have formally requested the postponement of a federal class-action fraud suit against Trump University, scheduled for November 28, on grounds that "the 69 days until inauguration are critical and all-consuming [for the President-elect]." Sign this petition to tell U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel that we, the people of the United States, expect Donald Trump to attend trial on November 28, and that the duties of the President are not less pressing than that of a President-elect. Sign this petition so that Trump is not allowed to minimize the importance of this trial or hide from it under the veil of the Presidency. We understand this is a decision Judge Curiel needs to make and we respect his decision but we would like our voices to be heard. We believe the President-elect, Donald Trump, should face trial this month. His attorneys state that: "Now that the election is over, we submit that the President-Elect should not be required to stand trial during the next two months while he prepares to assume the Presidency. The time and attention to prepare and testify will take him away from imperative transition work at a critical time." His duties as President of the United States will not be less than that of a President-elect, and that is why he should have to stand trial on the date the court set. He should answer to the fraud suit against Trump University, and give the students a fair trial, starting on November 28. Image: Trump at a campaign rally in Dallas, Tx., September 14, 2015.

Petition to Senator Mitch McConnell and Senator Charles Schumer
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.
Petition to United Nations, United Nations Security Council, Antonio Guterres
We The People ask the United Nations to independently investigate the US Government.
The ruling party in the White House, Senate, and House of Representatives are involved in a massive matrix of scandals and conflicts, and have demonstrated nothing but biased and illegitimate interest in serving the American people. It is evident that the administration responsible for ensuring an ethical government is violating the basic rules of ethics We The People deserve and demand. We ask the United Nations, a global body that ensures peace keeping in every nation, to take action to ensure the people of America are protected from a government that refuses to take care of itself.
Petition to United States Supreme Court, U.S. Senate, US House of Representatives, Alex Mohajer
TRUMP WATCH: Demand Accountability and Action
The 2017 Trump TAPE: Take Action; Demand Accountability; Protect Democracy; and Ensure Elections Integrity Concerned Americans, both Clinton supporters and otherwise, have been left with legitimate concerns about the integrity of the 2016 presidential election. Free and fair elections are one of the cornerstones on which America was founded, and we should all protect the integrity of those elections regardless of party loyalty or candidate. If we do not hold accountable the various interventionist forces that meddled with the 2016 presidential election, we are contributing to a broader erosion of American principles, regardless of our party loyalties or affiliations. Americans seeing past party loyalty must wholly reject fake news, election tampering, foreign intervention via Wikileaks and Russian hacking, voter suppression, and obstructionist behavior by FBI Director James Comey. Moreover, we must stand together to ensure that an increasingly belligerent Donald Trump is held accountable through all legal avenues possible, to ensure the presidency does not become a place for profiteering, ethics and constitutional violations, conflicts of interest, and/or influence by hostile foreign nations. Hillary Clinton won the national popular vote with nearly 3 million votes, or 2.1%. She has earned more votes than any other presidential nominee in history, second only to President Obama (whose 2012 total she virtually tied). This is unprecedented and demonstrates need for electoral college reform.
