Pass Immigration ReformTaking this action, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, would provide long-term advantages for our nation’s economy and that will benefit every American. Congress must address the root causes of migration, including development programs in countries in Central America. We can help not only to reduce hunger and poverty but also to stop the tide of undocumented immigrants to our country.
NE Governor Heineman and Congressional Delegation, Stop bullying refugee children!Governor Heineman and most of the Nebraska Congressional Delegation want to reveal the identities of child refugees sent to Nebraska (and the families caring for them) merely for political gain. Can you imagine the fear this must cause for those knocking at our door for help? Please sign this petition asking our elected officials to take a step back and represent our values.
Take Texas Back From ALEC!ALEC skirts the law restricting lobbying activities and gifts to politicians, and pushes its ideologically driven agenda through model bills that put corporate profits and the right-wing agenda before the needs of working people. What are just some of the laws that ALEC and Laubenberg have promoted, and in many cases, already imposed on Texans? • Stand your Ground Bill • Voter ID Bill • Women’s Sonogram Bill • Sanctuary Cities Bill • Anti-ACA Legislation These actions are hurting millions of Texans, undermining public education, damaging our environment, cutting off access to healthcare, and making our streets, homes and workplaces less safe.

Sign this petition to bring the film "Inequality for All" to Mindframe Theaters in DubuqueOut of all developed nations, the United States has the most unequal distribution of wealth.

The Reviews Are In: Tell Yelp to Cut All Ties with ALECALEC is an organization that brings together corporations and state legislators to produce "model bills." ALEC is behind some of the most harmful legislation in the country: voter suppression in North Carolina, anti-immigrant laws in Arizona, union-busting laws in Wisconsin, the infamous "Stand Your Ground" law in Florida, and more. A people-powered company like Yelp should have nothing to do with ALEC, let alone give them thousands of dollars.
Fix the Senate -- Reform the FilibusterThe Senate is broken. It's that simple. Because Republicans continue to insist upon misusing the right to filibuster, corrupting the process and requiring 60 votes to pass almost every bill, the Senate’s work for the American people has ground to a halt. Issues like guns, immigration, climate change, every one of them blocked by filibusters. But it's not just issues, the filibuster created the judicial crisis of unfilled vacancies in our courts. Unenforceable labor law. A toothless Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Leadership vacancies at the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Interior. It doesn’t have to be this way. The compromise on rules reform that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell agreed to at the start of this Congress is not working. We still do not have a functioning Senate that passes legislation and confirms nominations in a timely manner. Demand that Senators Reid and McConnell stop the obstruction and fix the senate right now.
