• Tell Syracuse Common Council to Defy Trump, Defend Syracuse, & Expand Sanctuary
    Donald Trump just announced executive action that threatens any city that seeks to protect immigrant residents from his deportation machine. What he’s trying to do is roll back the leaps forward we’ve made in recent years but we won’t let him. In 2017, it’s the efforts to defend Black lives and protect migrant rights that make our cities safer, not Trump’s extra enforcement promises. To keep us safe, we need to evolve our local policies to make our cities real sanctuaries for all residents, not cancel them because of the illegitimate President's latest actions. That means a commitment to separating police from federal immigration enforcement AND addressing the policing that funnels Black and other residents to jail and places criminal charges on immigrant residents, making them a target for ICE agents. Tell our mayor and city council to stand up to Trump and take action that doesn't just symbolically defend immigrants, but transforms our city's policies to stop targeting us for imprisonment, risk of removal, and state violence at the hands of police and aggressive immigration agents. The illegitimate President's threats should be cause to embolden our city leaders, not an excuse to abandon our potential progress.

  • Tell the Patriots to tackle hate and skip the White House!
    There is nothing that Donald Trump hates more than negative publicity and perceived slights. This is a powerful opportunity to publicly shame Trump and prevent the normalization of hate. We need everyone- especially folks in power and in the public spotlight- to stand in solidarity with the millions of people standing up to Trump's hate-filled agenda.

  • Boicot al Maíz Gringo
    México es el segundo socio comercial de los Estados Unidos en la compra de maíz y soya - dos productos que solían ser producidos en México y que ahora son comprados de los Estados Unidos casi en su totalidad. Además, México importa de E.U. más del 70% del maíz que consume y representa 13 mmdd en ingresos a varios estados que predominantemente votaron por Trump y que respaldan sus políticas anti-migrantes y anti-mexicanas. Pedimos al Senado de la República Mexicana que presione al gobierno estadounidense para exigir un trato de dignidad y respeto al pueblo de Mexico y a los millones de mexicanos que contribuyen a la economía y sociedad norteamericana.

  • Don’t Let Guadalupe Be One of Trump’s First Deportees
    Guadalupe García de Rayos is a mother of two who came to the US when she was 14 years old. Nine years ago, Sheriffs carrying out an unconstitutional raid led by Arizona’s Arpaio arrested her for working to support her family. She spent six months in ICE detention before being released to her family, but now, she’s being called back in by federal agents. This week, Guadalupe faces possible deportation due to Trump’s new declarations calling for the immediate removal of all people with charges regardless of circumstances. Guadalupe and her family are facing the reality that she may soon be separated from the children she has worked so hard to support. Angel, 16, and Jacqueline, 14, grew up with the fear of Arpaio's racially motivated reign and although a federal judge declared Arpaio’s raids unconstitutional, ICE agents still may attempt to separate this family. Her community is rallying around her and is asking you to do the same. https://youtu.be/ZNeae3RQJsI

  • Tell Mayor Clark to Support the Separation of Monroe Police and ICE
    In the wake of the current political climate, it is critical that we uphold the constitution. By law, the police are not required to provide information to Immigration and Customs Enforcement regardless of the severity and/or nature of the police's involvement. Keeping these two agencies separate helps keep immigrants in Monroe County safe and ensures they receive due process as required under the US constitution. A statement on this matter is both warranted by the residents of Monroe County, and justified by law, as local police departments are not required to inform ICE of documentation status, and ICE cannot detain any person on US soil without due process.

  • Phoenix Might Pay More for Police in Schools than Teachers, Sign to Stop It
    We are urging you to take a position against SB1099, a terrible anti-youth legislative proposal that is currently being considered by the Arizona State Legislature. Bill SB1099, the School Safety Program Bill, directs the Arizona Department of Education to prioritize grants for school resource officers (SROs) and juvenile probation officers in schools within communities with “high crime rates.” This will result in more police officers being placed in black/brown schools, which will increase the arrests of Black and Latino students on campus—feeding the school-to-prison pipeline. The past two weeks of Trump’s presidency has shown us that many of the communities represented by our school youth population are at risk of being further discriminated, criminalized and even deported. It is your political and moral responsibility as a school board to ensure that the students you service are safe instead of making school environments more hostile by heightened police presence. Currently we have a crisis in education. In 2016, our state systematically chose to cut education by $21 million while allocating $17 million for a project to increase beds at Eloy private detention center. A safe school is a school that has enough teachers, enough books, school programs like art, music, and other character building activities that will create whole and healthy adults which in turn creates safe communities. A safe school cannot be defined by over-policing. Phoenix Union High School District does not need police officers. Advocating for more SRO's on campuses is the wrong answer to solving disciplinary issues with young people that need intervention based on love and guidance. We must go beyond solutions that are about police. Studies have shown that even accounting for all other variables, that the mere placement of an SRO on campus increases the arrests made on that campus five times more probable. Sign this petition, and say YES to safe schools that promote creativity and so NO to incarceration.
