Long story short: tell your Congressfolk to extend the airline industry’s stock buyback ban, tell Facebook to stop enabling hatemongers on its platform, and tell President Biden to enact the strongest old-growth tree conservation rules possible. Use the tools in the upper right-hand corner of this page (or, if you're on a cellphone, the bottom of this page) to find your Congressfolk's phone numbers and/or use the email/petition tools in the following paragraphs.
More Perfect Union helps you tell Congress to extend the airline industry’s stock buyback ban they enacted in 2020. Seems Congress was afraid that airline corporations would take corporate welfare and just give it to their executives to buy stock back with, instead of helping their workers keep their jobs; now, with airlines flush with cash again but inflicting delays on customers, they’re hoping to outlast the ban and start spending all their money on stock buybacks. Hence our call to keep that ban going. Don’t believe the hype that it’s “unfair” to airline corporations! Frankly, all corporations should have stock buyback bans.
Color of Change helps you tell Facebook to stop enabling hate on its platform. Among other very important things, you’ll ask for Facebook to end page “auto-generation” that automatically generates white supremacist “pages” that help white supremacists find each other. Free association is free association, but no law says big corporations should make it easier for racist pricks to find each other, and there’s no substitute for people when it comes to content moderation. Facebook uses algorithms for that not because they do it better than people, but because you have to pay people and give them off when they get sick or have problems, and Facebook doesn’t want to do that. So let’s stop enabling them.
Finally, Penn Environment helps you tell President Biden to protect old growth forests as vigorously as possible. When a tree is centuries old, as some of America’s trees are, it stores a lot of carbon emissions, so it seems to me you’d not only like to keep old trees around but help more trees get old! And once you cut a tree down, it doesn’t store carbon emissions anymore, nor does it help keep our air and water clean or preserve wildlife habitats. And as impermanent as is the desk they make from old-growth trees, the money an executive makes from cutting them down is even more impermanent. No one remembers folks who convert life into money.
