Long story short: tell the government of Egypt to release Alaa Abdel Fattah, tell our HHS Department to prevent discrimination in health care, and tell our DOT to properly measure the climate change emissions caused by our transportation system. Use the email/petition tools in the following paragraphs to communicate your will.
Amnesty International helps you tell the government of Egypt to release Alaa Abdel Fattah from prison. So let’s play “what are the charges?” In 2013 he got 15 years for, dig this, “organizing a political protest without a permit”; any government that’ll give you 15 years for that is a snowflake government which will resort to any tyranny to oppress its people. Eventually they shortened that sentence, but in 2021 gave him five years for “broadcasting false news,” another charge favored by snowflake governments. They even tried a “shooting at soldiers” charge in the aftermath of the Arab Spring, but couldn’t make it stick! They should let him out before they embarrass themselves further.
The National Women’s Law Center helps you tell the Biden Administration to enact the most vigorous anti-discrimination-in-health-care rule possible. The Affordable Care Act authorizes our Department of Health and Human Services (or HHS) to enact rules protecting good Americans from discrimination, and a lot of folks experience it, from the person who doesn’t speak English well getting post-surgery instructions only in English to the transgender person not getting care because their doctor doesn’t like them, or the Black woman getting her symptoms dismissed because their doctor doesn’t like them. All of that’s horrible, and nobody’s “religious” “beliefs” should allow them to inflict it on their patients.
Finally, the National Campaign for Justice helps you tell our Department of Transportation to issue the most vigorous greenhouse gas emission tabulation rules possible. So we can better fight climate change! You can guess the Republican response to DOT’s proposed rule – that it would be a “burden” on corporations. They’re so law-and-order about detaining Black folks indefinitely, but not so much about corporations polluting your air and water. Funny how that works; you might almost think the amount of corporate money they get for their campaigns warps their thinking! And that’s why we have to get in their grills about it.
