Stop Abusive Misuse of Antibiotics on Farm Animals

Animals on factory farms are forcibly administered antibiotics, allowing farmers to keep them in filthy, overcrowded conditions without spreading diseases. However, misuse and overuse of antibiotics has led to a rise of antibiotic-resistant and sometimes fatal bacteria in farm animals across the U.S. Demand improvements to farm animal welfare and stricter regulations on antibiotic use in these animals to prevent another epidemic.

Environment

Stop the Expansion of Animal-Poisoning Offshore Drilling Operations

A new offshore oil and gas drilling development plan could allow valuable land to be leased to fossil fuel companies. This would inevitably contribute to mass scale environmental pollution, as well as a series of oil spills that threaten millions of wildlife and people. Demand the Biden Administration not lease any new territories to these companies and encourage a move towards a clean energy economy.

​​Stop Denying Children Stable Housing With LGBTQ+ Parents
