Tell Congress to protect DACA and pass real immigration reform

Our president’s decision to end DACA is devastating. No one is well-served by policies that tear families apart. I stand behind all of Colorado's families and support DACA fully and unequivocally. I call on Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform so that we have a permanent solution for so many that contribute to our country. I call on Congress to protect Colorado families and pass comprehensive immigration reform. Join me. Cary Kennedy

Protest CNN 247 News coverage of Donald Trump by Boycotting

Many would agree with the fact that there has been a shift in the focus of the American elections from constructive policy to an emphasis on petty insults. The new election diva, Donald Trump, has earned around 2 billion dollars, through a FREE MEDIA. But the question is, how a media can be termed as "free", if its emphasis is only on gossiping, instead of highlighting the facts. Instead of highlighting facts and figures about various Republicans and Democrats running in the election, the news channels instead focus on running news which would bring in maximum amount of ratings due...

Support Student Loan Forgiveness

Total outstanding student loan debt in America is expected to exceed $1.4 TRILLION this year. Millions of hardworking, taxpaying, educated Americans are being crushed under the weight of their educational debts, while the economy continues to sputter. Support a REAL economic stimulus and jobs plan. Support Student Loan Forgiveness.

Protect America's Wolves!

President Obama and his first Interior Secretary, Ken Salazar, a Colorado rancher, adopted unjust and heartless "tea party" policies toward America's wolves, and the U.S. Congress is equally guilty in this ecological and ethical injustice. Wolves are highly intelligent, native, and vital natural predators that belong on the land. Too many brutish ranchers and misguided hunters have unfairly demonized and maligned wolves for centuries. An American majority wants an end to the demonization and massacre of America's wolves and other native wildlife.

Reform the Criminal Justice System

For too long, the priorities of our criminal justice system have been backward. We have valued punishment over rehabilitation for low-level, nonviolent crimes, and we have done so at the expense of public safety, human dignity, our budget, and the economic vitality of our communities and of our nation. We must fundamentally reevaluate our criminal justice system. I ask you to put justice back in our criminal justice system by fundamentally reevaluating why and how we convict and incarcerate—and the best ways we can empower people who have been incarcerated to succeed once they rejoin society.

Recall Senator Dianne Feinstein

This Senator has betrayed all American citizens, by implementing PRISM, extending the Monsanto Protection Act, and more! She no longer represents the people. She has outlived her usefulness.

ACA is here to stay! GOP move on.

Plain and simple, the Affordable Care Act is the law. It is popular, essential, and constitutional. Cease the frivolous attacks on this law that threaten the health care and well-being of the American public—and move on.

Petition Twitter to Suspend Donald Trump's Account

Dear Jack, Donald Trump has shared and promoted ideals of the white nationalist so-called "alt-right" movement to millions all over the world using his Twitter account. He has incited abuse against others with his dangerous rhetoric, and should be suspended based on the Twitter Rules regarding safety and anti-harassment.

TRUMP CHARGED WITH TREASON
