A: Stacey Abrams
Lawmakers have refused to address our country’s gun violence epidemic but we are making it loud and clear that Congress must finally take action.
In 2018, our country suffered far too many mass shootings, including the national tragedy that took place in Parkland, Florida. This year, the number of mass shootings already exceeded the number of days.
We must demand Congress do what it takes to pass these common sense solutions to save lives. A majority of Americans support common-sense gun violence prevention reforms, including background checks for all gun buyers and a ban on military-style assault weapons.
Horrific mass shootings just took place at Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas. Our elected leaders have the power to prevent these senseless tragedies, and we must demand that they take action in 2019.341 signatures
Add your name now: I demand action to end gun violence! Tell Congress to close the loopholes in our background check system and get assault weapons off of our streets for good.
Lisa McCormick believes it is vital for Americans to eliminate the corrupt influence of dirty money in politics with an affordable system of fair & clean elections. Eliminating political payoffs is the only way to put on a public agenda items such as state-funded child care, paid family leave, universal health insurance, free tuition at public colleges and universities.
Full disclosure of campaign contributions, government contracts and potential conflicts of interest is a significant way to mitigate the evil of secret influence over public money, power and jobs.
“Publicity is justly commended as a remedy for social and industrial diseases,” declared Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court Louis Dembitz Brandeis. “Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light the most efficient policeman.”
Simply stated, what you don’t know can hurt. Secrecy should not be allowed when it comes to the public’s right to know about the business of public entities and those who control them and we must end the practice of allowing any kind of bribery to influence the decisions of elected officials.77 signaturesAdd signature
