Today, Onquette Woodyard will spend her 49th Father's day without her father, Horace Peterson, who is serving life for a crime even his prosecutors admit he didn't commit. 48 years later, over 100,000 agree it's time for @govwhitmer to #freehoracepeterson. http://chng.it/cd7j7jWg
Jackie started a petition asking @EmoryUniversity to include #healthinsurance in their cost of attendance. Already, almost 150 people have signed in solidarity with students, will you add your name? https://www.change.org/p/emory-university-include-health-insurance-in-emory-university-s-cost-of-attendance
Horace Peterson is the ultimate cautionary tale: since being locked up in 1973 for a crime he didn't commit, he has spent his life learning and mentoring in his community, but he still has no opportunity for parole. Tell @govwhitmer to #freehoracepeterson. http://chng.it/cd7j7jWg
Nearly 45,000 are calling for @SecDebHaaland to rescind Trump-era price increases on hotel rooms in national parks. From 2016-2021, prices across many rooms were nearly tripled to over $700 per night. Ann started her petition to make the parks accessible https://www.change.org/p/secretary-of-the-interior-deb-haaland-rescind-the-trump-era-national-parks-price-increases
On June 19th, 1865, enslaved African-Americans in Galveston, Texas, were told they were free. A century and a half later, Juneteenth is officially a federal holiday.
But there is so much work left to be done. (Thread ⬇️)
During a pandemic, we came together, organized our communities, and turned out in record numbers last fall. Now the GOP is trying - and succeeding! - to rig the voting rules to silence us.
Call your Senator and tell them to support the For The People Act: (855) 249-6462
The same guy that blocked making Juneteenth a federal holiday for a year said the insurrectionists that stormed the Capitol were "staying within the rope lines in the rotunda." 🤔
Content warning: mob violence.
We’re building that future day by day through organizing with the multiracial working class, talking to folks who may not yet be with us, and co-governing with electeds who share our vision.
A better world is possible in which our government takes care of us, everyone gets what they need, and our people and planet can thrive.
.#Juneteenth wasn’t given to us, we fought for it.
Today we celebrate joy, commemorate pain, and recommit ourselves to the fight for our future and Black liberation.
