Florida Commission on Ethics: Investigate Attorney General Pam Bondi's Unethical Behavior

Florida’s Attorney General, Pam Bondi, personally solicited a political contribution from Donald Trump before deciding against probing Trump University fraudulent practices. Not only is it unethical for Pam Bondi to solicit contributions from someone she is being asked to investigate, but according to the IRS it is also illegal for her to accept contributions from a charity like Trump's family foundation. The Florida Commission on Ethics needs to protect the public trust and launch a full investigation into Pam Bondi's unethical behavior.

Tell the Florida Legislature: Act NOW on gun safety reform!

We lost 49 beautiful young lives in one terrible night. It is shocking that one man, filled with hate, could cause so much carnage. It is maddening that this hateful man with a history of domestic abuse was under investigation for terrorism ties – yet, had no problem legally buying an AR-15 military-style assault weapon. We can’t let this happen again. We’re calling for a special session of the Florida Legislature to pass meaningful, commonsense, lifesaving gun safety reform without delay!

Donald Trump: stop hiding your tax returns

Everyone has a right to know, and anyone seeking to lead our country should be fully transparent with voters. Like the other two candidates, Donald Trump must immediately release his tax returns so voters can make an informed choice for President.

Boycott Home Depot (Co-founder supports Trump)

The Hispanic and Latino community, who are a huge part of Home Depot's workforce, clientele, and success, will not shut up, but rather stand up and speak up against the endorsement of racist Trump by one of Home Depot's co-founders, Bernie Marcus. Boycott and sign the petition so that the Hispanic and Latino buying power is acknowledged, respected, and felt by Home Depot, its shareholders, and its investors.

Dept. of Justice: Investigate Arizona voter suppression

In Maricopa County Arizona, the number of polling places was reduced from 200 during the 2012 primary election, to just 60 for 2016. Some predominantly Latino areas only got one or no polling places at all. People had to wait in 5+ hour lines to vote. Please investigate and put a stop to the voter suppression before the general election.

Christians Against Trump

Trump should be denied the evangelical voter because he stands in direct opposition to the values of all that it is to be Christian. Christians believe in loving the foreigner, welcoming the stranger, healing the sick, helping the poor and standing up for the rejected and the oppressed.

Tell Congress: We Deserve To Know. Label GMO Food!

Congress has a choice to make. Either do the bidding of Big Ag and keep consumers in the dark about genetically modified food, or do what American consumers demand and require clear labeling of GMOs. Do the right thing. Don't leave us in the dark. REJECT the DARK Act. PASS the Biotechnology Food Labeling and Uniformity Act and shine a light on GMOs in our food!
