Shocking Violence in NYC: Act Now

32-year-old Mark Carson was walking down a street in New York City on Friday evening when a man came up to him and his friends, yelled "f---ot" and "queer," and shot him in the head.



Mark's horrific death was part of a string of anti-LGBT violence in New York City.



Hate crimes are sadly nothing new, but HRC has written an open letter to the mayors of every major U.S. city and all 50 governors to capture the spirit we're all feeling right now: horror, outrage, and a determination that love will conquer hate even in a moment as awful as this one.



If you agree, sign on to the letter below to demand equality now.

Protect Appalachia's Water from Mountaintop Removal Mining!

For many people living near mountaintop removal coal mining sites in Appalachia, the water they are forced to use for bathing, cooking, and even drinking is cloudy, brown, and toxic.



Years of mountaintop removal coal mining have buried 2,000 miles of local streams with waste from Big Coal's destruction -- many of the streams that are left are devoid of life. Well water in the area isn't safe either, and it's making people sick.



Tell the White House and the EPA that everyone deserves clean water. Urge them to act now to protect Appalachia from mountaintop removal mining!

Require Higher Inspection Standards On California Egg Farms!

In February 2012, Andy Cheung, an egg broker, abandoned 50,000 hens on his Turlock, California egg farm, leaving the animals without food or clean water for more than two weeks. When officials finally discovered the farm, 17,000 hens had starved to death. State officials then began gassing the remaining live birds. Fortunately Animal Place and other local sanctuaries rescued 4,460 hens. This incident is just one additional reminder that it is extremely important to create better monitoring of farms.


Currently there are only very few inspectors in the state of California for a large number of farms. This is simply not enough to ensure that animals are provided the level of care they need. Monitoring and inspection must improve to prevent future tragedies!


Please sign the petition today to urge decision makers to create a higher standard for monitoring and inspection at egg-laying farms.

Tell the U.S. Forest Service to Protect America’s Rainforest!

The Tongass National Forest in southeast Alaska is home to towering old-growth trees, five species of Pacific salmon, and some of the highest concentrations of brown bears and bald eagles in the world. For decades the U.S. Forest Service has managed the Tongass for its timber, but it is enormously valuable as a resource for fishing, tourism, and recreation. With over half of the ‘great giants’ of the Tongass felled, we need you to weigh in on a plan that would protect the remaining old-growth forest for good.



The Forest Service is now accepting public comments on their Tongass management plan. This is an opportunity to ask them to amend the plan to shift away from the unsustainable logging practices of the past and transition towards sustainable diversified economies, prioritizing industries like fisheries, tourism and recreation.

 

Please submit a public comment asking the U.S. Forest Service to implement the transition plan and move towards sustainable management of the Tongass.

Tell the New York Times to Stop Using the "I-Word"

After years of controversy, the Associated Press has announced that it will no longer use the word "illegal" to describe undocumented immigrants. Now, let's ask the New York Times to do the same.

The use of the term "illegal" rather than "undocumented" only serves to reinforce the already rampant racism commonly employed when discussing immigration issues in the United States. Declaring an entire group of diverse people to be "illegal" only serves to further dehumanize them.

Many major TV networks have already denounced what campaigns are calling "the I-word." The AP has now made a pivotal move in the world of print media.

Thus far, the New York Times has been hesitant to adopt any sort of public stance on the matter, but if we push hard enough, this well-respected paper could be a model for the rest of the nation's media.

Tell New York Times Deputy News Editor Phil Corbett to take a stand for objectivity and erase the "I-word" from his paper's vocabulary!

Commit to Fighting Senior Hunger

Tonight, chances are a senior in your community will go to bed hungry.

And your neighbor isn't the only one suffering: millions of older Americans were unable to afford a meal today. Without enough to eat, seniors struggling with hunger could become more vulnerable to illness.

It's heartbreaking to think of so many older Americans going to bed hungry - but it's not going to change unless we commit to fighting senior hunger.

It's easy to help - you can participate in a food drive, spread the word about senior hunger, or make a donation. Take the first step right now by signing our pledge:

"I pledge to help seniors in my community who don't know where their next meal will come from. Nearly nine million older Americans are at risk of hunger - struggling to get enough to eat, and unless we do something to help, even more will go to bed hungry next year. Together, we can help older Americans in need and fight senior hunger."

Ban ALL Ivory Imports to the United States

Although importing ivory to the U.S. has banned since the 1989 moratorium, there is a legal exception; sport-hunted trophies. The legal loophole permits Americans to shoot elephants and import the ivory into the USA.


And it isn't just the ivory. Safari hunters bring back elehant hide and the leather makes belts, ladies purses & gun cases. Stoles are made from the feet,- and elephant ears are used to paint maps of Africa.


In the 1930s and 1940s, there were as many as five million African elephants on Earth. Now populations have dwindled to between less than 500,000. Given the current elephant poaching in Africa, we ask for a complete ban on all elephant products, under all circumatances. Close the loophole that allows all ivory import into the United States.

Stop the Amendment on the Farm Bill



An essential piece of legislation expired on September 30th, 2012- but could be reintroduced in the 2014-14 session of Congress. Shortly before the Farm Bill passed, (Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act of 2012) the House Committee on Agriculture added an amendment.


The amendment, "Protect Interstate Commerce Act" was introduced by Representative Steve King at the last minute.


The provision would prevent states from enacting any legislation to regulate the production or marketing of goods made in other states, including environmental measures or product safety requirements, and not just those concerning animal welfare.


For example- even though there is a ban on production and sale of foie gais in California, businesses in California could buy and sell it if it was manufactured in New York.


Please contact your Senators and ask that they OPPOSE the passage of any Farm Bill legislation with the King amendment.
