Indigenous Brazilians whose homes were destroyed in a catastrophic mining accident are without clean food or water, being forced to travel for hours away from their ruined homes just to feed their families.

Don’t Broadcast Dangerous Conspiracy Theory About the Coronavirus

A dangerous conspiracy theory claiming that the U.S.’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, manufactured the coronavirus, will air on television stations across the country.

Demand Sinclair Television choose not to broadcast misinformation about the coronavirus on T.V. stations across America.

Save America From Two-Party System Monopoly

Switching to preferential voting would allow the United States to finally do away with the two-party system.

Demand a revision to America’s antiquated voting practice.
