    EVERY VOTER, EVERY VOTE!

    One-Third-of-Arizona-Votes-Uncounted-Two-Days-After-the-Election_medium.jpgThis election cycle, we encountered numerous failures in our county and state's electoral systems that disenfranchised voters and blocked them from exercising their most basic democratic right: casting a ballot that counts.

    Without your help, we would not have been able to bring these deep flaws to light. And so far, the response from our county and state elected officials has been monotonously predictable: More barriers to casting ballots and having them count, supposedly to ‘prevent chaos.’

    Together, we are fighting back against their regressive ‘reform’ proposals. And we’re going on offense, mobilizing across the state for lowering the barriers to casting ballots and having them counted.

    Take the pledge now to fight for the rights of EVERY VOTER and EVERY VOTE! Together, we will win this important campaign for democracy in Arizona!

    I Will Fight to Save the Minimum Wage -- Yo Voy a Luchar para Salvar el Salario Mínimo

    Arizona's lowest-wage workers make only $7.65 an hourif_the_minimum_wage.jpg.                                                                       But, even that's too much for some 1%ers.

    The Arizona Restaurant Association, led by Steve Chucri, is pledging to keep up the attacks on our minimum wage. Instead of working to create new, quality jobs and strengthen our economy, some in the Arizona state legislature would prefer to widen the wealth and income disparity gap between workers and CEO's by lowering wages for all.

    Will you pledge today to fight for the minimum wage?                 

                                                ---------------------------------------------------                            

    El salario minimo para los trabajadores de Arizona es tan sólo $7.65 por hora; sin embargo, los del 1% piensan que es demasiado.

En lugar de trabajar para crear nuevos y mejores puestos de trabajo y fortalecer nuestra economía, algunos en la legislatura estatal de Arizona prefieren hacer mas grande la brecha de ingresos y riqueza entre los trabajadores regulares y los ejecutivos de las grandes empresas mediante la reducción de los salarios para todos los trabajadore regulares como nosotros.

    ¿Te comprometes hoy a luchar con nosotros a favor del salario mínimo?
