The President of the United States is defending white supremacists and neo-Nazis. This is a national emergency and accountability is critical.
The most important thing to Trump is his money and business ties. Yesterday was a bad day for him as dozens of his business councils rebuked then abandoned him.
But that’s not enough. Starbucks and Nike–both companies that seek to profit off of a progressive and inclusive brand–have stores in Trump Tower in New York City. They have likely paid millions of dollars in rent to Trump over time–money that has given him a platform to spew hate for years.
Will you sign this petition with me, calling on Starbucks and Nike to get out of Trump Tower?
Researchers have linked solitary confinement to lasting psychological consequences, including anti-social behavior, anxiety and self-harm. Solitary confinement is most damaging to young people because they are still developing mentally and physically. Yet the use of room confinement for discipline, punishment, administrative convenience, retaliation and staffing shortages remains common practice, and has been documented in reports such as the Foundation’s Maltreatment of Youth in U.S. Juvenile Correctional Facilities. This maltreatment undermines the development of young people who get into trouble with the law and exposes them to grave dangers while failing to improve public safety.
