In the wake of the implosion of anti-gerrymandering bill SB 22 underneath the weight of over 600 amendments, Fair Districts PA helps you tell Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf to call a special session of the state legislature to pass redistricting reform. If he does so, we'll be able to introduce HB 722 and SB 22 again -- possibly in improved form! -- and we'll be able to punish our legislators for taking the people's will and pooping all over it (since legislators will regard not having the month of July off as a punishment). Mr. Wolf absolutely has the power to call a special legislative session, and the people's clear support for redistricting reform gives him the reason to do it -- but does he have the will? Surely he'll want to consider that calling unpopular legislators back for a special session to do the job the people have clearly commanded them to do would be a smart political move, not a "risky" one.
Meanwhile, Moms Rising helps you tell Wells Fargo to stop investing in the private prison corporations that are (among other evils!) helping our Administration forcibly separate parents and children at the border. The Obama Administration started to move away from using private prisons for immigrant detainment -- since, you know, our government really should perform its own duties, not farm them out to someone's crony -- but this Administration, flush with private prison campaign money, has moved back in the wrong direction. Still, private prisons would have a much tougher go of it if they didn't get money from big banks. And you know Wells Fargo could certainly use all the good PR it can get! Indeed, it's been all but begging for good PR, after being caught opening checking accounts for customers without asking them (among other sins). If pulling out of the private prison game happens to benefit them at the same time it benefits us, I won't complain.
Finally, if you've missed previous opportunities to tell the FCC to reject the proposed Sinclair/Tribune merger, then Free Press still helps you do that. Sinclair Broadcasting already owns 193 "local" TV stations, which are enjoying a bit of a vogue as more people reject the obvious partisanship and hackdom of cable news channels, but Sinclair indulges in quite a bit of partisanship and hackdom itself -- forcing their "local" newsreaders to read a noxious script about "fake news" as if it's something those other people do, and forcing "terrorism news desk" items and must-run "opinions" from a former Administration spokeshack on their local stations. Buying up Tribune Media would enable Sinclair to force even more of this crap into even more households. What on Earth is wrong with local news stations having local ownership? And if you couldn't find a local owner, what on Earth would be wrong with worker-owned broadcasting stations?
