Mobile Justice App

Take action

We released a new app to help you hold Mississippi law enforcement agencies accountable for their actions.Download the Mobile Justice Mississippi app for Android.

Dear Ali,

Innocent people are routinely stopped, searched, harassed, bullied into compliance, and humiliated every year in Mississippi. It's not a crime to walk down the street, to peacefully protest, to march, to rally, or to simply gather with a group of peers on a sidewalk, yet innocent black and brown Mississippians are turned into suspects for doing just that.

Today, we released a tool to hold Mississippi law enforcement agencies accountable for their actions.

Download our free Mobile Justice Mississippi app for Android.

The app can record and report police interactions you see or experience, allow you to see if people around you are being stopped by the police, and teach you about your rights.

Visit our website to learn more about Mobile Justice Mississippi and to download the app..

If you see something, record something by using Mobile Justice Mississippi.

In solidarity,

Jennifer Riley-Collins

Fwd: Obama can save Net Neutrality

Obama promised to protect Net Neutrality. Now it's time for him to act.

Dear Ali Nabavi,

Obama promised to protect Net Neutrality.  Now it's time for him to act.

Obama's Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted 3-2 to propose new rules that would allow Internet service providers like Comcast and Verizon to slow down your access to certain websites.

But the FCC can still do the right thing, rejecting the proposed rules and standing up for real Net Neutrality principles. 

And more than anybody else, President Obama can tilt the table in our favor by speaking out in support of our cause -- if he does what's right, the FCC will follow.

PETITION TO PRESIDENT OBAMA: You campaigned as an aggressive supporter of Net Neutrality.  Now it's time to keep your promise.  Demand that the FCC restore Net Neutrality rules and treat the Internet like a utility -- where everybody has equal access.

Thanks,

Fwd: BREAKING: Google says ALEC is lying

StandUpToALEC Stay Informed. Stay Engaged.

Ali -

Just hours ago, Google Chairman Eric Schmidt denounced the Koch-funded American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) on the nationally-syndicated Diane Rehm Show.

"Everyone understands climate change is occurring and the people who oppose it are really hurting our children and our grandchildren and making the world a much worse place. 
And so we should not be aligned with such people -- they're just, they're just literally lying," said Schmidt, about ALEC.

We couldn't have said it better. Help us spread the word by sharing with your friends on Facebook.

This move comes two weeks after over 50 organizations wrote a letter imploring Google to leave, citing their opposition to Google's corporate culture including renewable energy and net neutrality.

This is a huge win for all of us thanks directly to your help in standing up to organizations who support ALEC.

Thanks,

- Stand Up to ALEC

Sign the petition: Scott Brown is a lobbyist

Friend,

I just signed a petition asking former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown to debate Harvard Law Professor Lawrence Lessig over whether or not Brown is a lobbyist.

As reported <a href="http://time.com/3304291/scott-brown-lawsuit-threat-lobbyist"/> Brown previously worked for a lobbying firm </a>, Nixon Peabody, where he sold his relationships to help Wall Street with their "business and governmental affairs".

Right now Brown is running for election against anti-corruption candidate Jim Rubens in NH. Brown's campaign called Lessig a liar for naming Brown the lobbyist that he is.

Will you sign this petition asking Brown to debate Lessig? https://mayday.us/campaigns/of-course-brown-is-a-lobbyist/?sp_ref=56323220.220.9220.e.0.2

Ali,

We all know this democracy is in distress. It's time to send an urgent signal that we can fix it.

Today we're launching a SuperPAC to end all SuperPACs. It's called the Citizens SuperPAC, and it's only going to succeed if you support it. The video below will explain the plan, and you can also head over to MayOne.US to learn more.

Lessig Calls a Mayday

We still have the power to fix our democracy. And we will, if you help.

Join the Citizens SuperPAC.

Then share this message on Twitter and Facebook.

Of all the crazy ideas we have right now, this might be the craziest — or not. You decide.

With hope,
Lessig

Sign this petition: No pay for Congress during the shutdown

Hi,

I signed a petition to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate which says:

"I demand that members of Congress NOT get paid during a self-inflicted government shutdown. It is morally reprehensible that hardworking federal employees will stop receiving the paychecks they need to feed their families and pay their mortgages, while Congress still gets paid for refusing to do the job they were elected to do."

Will you sign this petition? Click here:
