  • Walgreens: Stand with Us & Stay in America
    Great news! Walgreens is dropping its plan to dodge more than $4 billion in taxes by changing its corporate address. We took on powerful shareholders like Goldman Sachs and demanded that Walgreens executives listen to community stakeholders. And they heard us. This victory shows that when we organize, we win.

  • Protect Florida Panthers from Big Oil
    Great news! The DEP for the State of Florida had recently revoked the oil drilling permits for the Dan A. Hughes Co. and is also filing a lawsuit seeking more than $100,000 in fines against the company. This would mean the Dan A. Hugh’s Company loses all authority to operate in the State of Florida.

  • Sign the petition: Stop Ohio Republicans from suppressing the vote
    In July, the Department of Justice backed the NAACP's legal challenge to the reduction of early voting days and the elimination of "golden week." Then in September, a federal judge ruled in favor of the NAACP and DOJ, blocking Republicans' latest attempt to make it harder to vote. Thanks so much for being part of the fight to protect and expand voting rights.

  • Urge the Berkeley City Council to Raise the Wage to $10.74+
    Victory! Last night the Berkeley City Council took a second and final vote to raise the Berkeley minimum wage to $12.53 per hour! The full $12.53 is rolled out over a 2 year period with the first increase to $10 coming this October with annual increases to follow. Eventually, our victory will mean $5000 a year in the pockets of low-wage working families that will flow directly into our local economy improving the lives of tens of thousands of people.

  • Make sure minimum wage workers can catch up and keep up
    I stood in the Minnesota Capitol with my daughters as Governor Dayton signed a bill raising Minnesota's minimum wage to $9.50 an hour, indexed to inflation. As we campaigned to raise the minimum wage, we heard that same refrain over and over -- it's not possible, the minimum wage couldn’t be raised to $9.50 and it couldn’t be tied to inflation. But you and thousands of others like you refused to take no for an answer. You wouldn't quit. And that work, hand-in-hand with bold legislative champions and an incredible coalition of faith, labor, and community groups, made the impossible possible. We put together a list of the top 10 things that Minnesotans like you did to raise the wage. Take a look, and celebrate all that we can accomplish when we raise our voices together: http://www.takeactionminnesota.org/blog/post/10-things-you-did-to-raise-the-wage/
