Sign Now: Demand Journalists Be Given Immediate Access to Detention Centers

Over the past year, immigrant and civil rights groups have witnessed a dramatic increase of immigration enforcement and detention due to the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance policy along the border. This includes the practice of family separation, a policy that has left hundreds of children in child detention centers across the country.

Stand together and demand that journalists be given immediate increased access to child detention centers. Sign the petition today!

#StopKavanaugh by calling voters in key states

We'll be using a calling tool that allows you to call voters in key states whose Senators have not yet publicly opposed Kavanaugh. You can share the devastating impact of Kavanaugh's nomination and urge them to ask their Senator to oppose Brett Kavanaugh's nomination. You can immediately connect them to their Senator with the click of a button.

Big Banks must divest from immigrant detention

Right now Big Banks like Wells Fargo, JPMorgan Chase, and BlackRock are getting rich off Trump’s heartless ”zero tolerance” that rips breastfeeding infants from their mother’s arms and indefinitely detains immigrants seeking asylum from violence. Big Banks heavily invest in these inhumane private-prison companies and make loans that keep them in business.

Will you sign the petition telling #BackersofHate to divest from immigrant detention?

Tell Congress: End family separations!

Trump's immigration agents have snatched over 11,000 children from their parents this year -- even those asking for political asylum after escaping horrible human rights abuses.

These are children, not bargaining chips. Trump can end family separations with one phone call -- but instead he's holding thousands of kids hostage to his extremist immigration agenda. Will you sign our emergency petition telling your member of Congress to vote NO on the two anti-immigrant GOP bills?

Deliver California Values Act petitions to your city council or mayor

We've automatically delivered petition signatures to mayors around California via email. But there is nothing more powerful than meetings with constituents to encourage elected officials to take action. We'll provide basic support and guidance, including an electronic copy of petition signatures for you to present during your meeting!

Will you meet with your mayor or attend a meeting of your city council or county supervisors?

Call on California mayors and local government officials to support our immigrant communities

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is suing California for shielding immigrant communities from the Trump administration’s terroristic immigration policies. And now a number of California cities are voting to attack our immigrant friends and neighbors by undermining the California Values Act.

That’s why we’re calling on California mayors and local government officials to explicitly support the California Values Act. Now more than ever is it imperative that our representatives stand up for immigrant communities under attack and set an example for the country. Sign the petition and ask your mayor and local government officials to support the California Values Act now.

Tell Visa: stop processing assault weapon transactions

Almost 50,000 Courage Campaign members have called on Visa to stop facilitating the sale of assault weapons. 

Can you help us ramp up the pressure on Visa and other credit card companies by helping flood their phone lines this week?

Tell financial services companies to stop enabling assault weapons sales

The shortest path to reduce gun violence and limit the sale of assault weapons won’t run through Congress -- it runs through the banking and financial services industry.

With a simple change to their terms of service, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and other credit card companies and payment processors can stop accepting or processing payments from retailers that sell assault weapons, bump stocks, and other weapons of mass murder. Sign the petition today!

Stop Trump from starting nuclear war with North Korea

Only Republicans in Congress can rein Trump in and stop him from blundering the US into a nuclear war. But not a single sitting Republican lawmaker has denounced Trump’s dangerous tweet. 

To us, it’s simple: if GOP lawmakers won’t stand up to the President when he threatens the basic safety and security of our nation, they don’t deserve their jobs.

That’s why we’re launching an emergency petition demanding that every Republican member of Congress denounce Trump’s nuclear aggression and limit his ability to start a nuclear war. Will you sign it now?
