1. Pass the Build Back Better Law
According to the official White House website, “The Build Back Better program is an ambitious plan to create jobs, cut taxes, and cut costs for working families – all funded by making the tax code better. fair and by making the richest and the big corporations pay. fair sharing. ”It is important to note that many of the jobs the law would create are clean energy jobs. Passing this law would therefore strengthen working families while helping save the planet. petition showing Congress your support.
2. Expose the companies that fund anti-abortion lawmakers
Perhaps you’ve heard of Texas’ anti-abortion law, which the Supreme Court refused to block urgently last summer. Texas women are prohibited by law from having an abortion at six weeks, before most women know they are pregnant. The structure of law enforcement also makes it particularly difficult to challenge in court. What you may not know is who funded the campaigns of Texas lawmakers. Thus, a Democratic Super PAC targets these companies. You can also protest their business expenses by signing this petition.
3. Prohibit the slaughter of slaughtered animals
Farm Sanctuary wrote a letter to President Biden and USDA Secretary Vilsack asking them to protect all slaughtered animals at the federal level. The slaughtered animals are pigs, goats, sheep and other farm animals that can no longer stand or walk due to intensive farming practices. While all farm animals suffer from human exploitation, the treatment of slaughtered animals is particularly cruel because workers beat, drag and electrocute these animals to the slaughter area. You can join Farm Sanctuary by signing this petition to end this inhuman practice.
4. Urge the White House to #ACTNow to stop climate change
During his campaign, President Biden spoke about the importance of tackling climate change. But we, as his constituents, must continue to pressure the President and members of Congress to turn promises into action. Climate change is decimating species and increasing animal suffering. It is also the cause of a growing number of natural disasters. Use the hashtag #ACTNow and sign this petition to reiterate that climate change must be a government priority.
5. Strengthen regulations to protect endangered species
Twenty-three other species are officially extinct, according to the Washington Post. Many were natives of Hawaii and other islands. And many other endangered species will soon follow suit due to human behavior causing climate change and habitat destruction. As an example of this model, Forbes describes how “warming temperatures have allowed mosquitoes to move to higher altitudes in Hawaii, allowing diseases to threaten more species.” You can sign this petition urging President Biden, Congress, and U.S. government agencies to focus their efforts on reversing climate change and protecting endangered species.
6. Protect animals from violence during protests
Melbourne Australia has just overtaken Buenos Aires as the city that has spent the most time in lockdown. Demonstrators took to the streets and many demonstrations degenerated into violence, especially against animals. This video shows a heated argument, culminating when a man lashes out, not against the other man, but against his dog on a leash. In Australia, intentional cruelty to animals is punishable by fines and even jail. But since animals are widely viewed as property rather than sentient beings, cruelty to animals is often overlooked. Sign this petition to remind the police that animals need protection too.
7. Limit solitary confinement for inmates
Illinois is considering a bill that would ban prisons from subjecting prisoners to more than 10 days of solitary confinement in 6 months. If passed, the bill would help reduce psychological trauma suffered by prisoners, especially prisoners with mental disorders. The United Nations has recognized that prolonged solitary confinement amounts to psychological torture, and the Illinois Prison Project has undertaken a targeted effort to help inmates who have suffered unfair solitary confinement at the hands of the Department of Corrections of Illinois. Sign this petition to join the Illinois Prison Project and protect inmates from cruel and counterproductive practices.
8. Reclassify the gray wolf as an endangered species
In 2020, former President Donald Trump removed federal protections for gray wolves. On May 26, the Center for Biological Diversity and the Humane Society of the United States filed an emergency petition with the US Fish and Wildlife Service to re-register gray wolves. In response, the agency acknowledged in a report that wolves may warrant protection, but the Endangered Species Act gives the agency one year to make its final decision. Sign this petition calling on the Fish and Wildlife Service to act now and put the gray wolf back on the endangered species list.
9. Seek justice for the heinous murder of kittens
With the end of the pandemic (or, more specifically, the return to normalcy despite its persistence), people have given up on the pets they bought during the lockdown. In a recent story from Pennsylvania, a mother kitten was found abandoned in a crate, in a dumpster, with her kittens. All the animals died of starvation. If this story horrifies you too, support your local shelters and sign this petition to encourage pet sterilization and seek justice for abandoned animals.
10. Stop the neglect, abandonment and abuse of puppies
Pet stores, shelters, breeders, and other sources of puppy adoption sites should make sure that before adopting pets, they understand the responsibilities that this entails. Those who don’t often end up harming animals and, even worse, failing to care for them. Fortunately, the story behind this petition has a happy ending; the vet who found the four sick and abandoned puppies in this video is helping them find a better life. To avoid neglect, abandonment and mistreatment of puppies, sign this petition. Tell puppy adoption sites to screen for prospective pet parents and tell states to require pet owners to sign forms conveying an understanding of their duties.
