QUICK ACTIONS

December Calls Us To Action!

Youth-centered calls to action to ignite the next generation of kind & courageous leaders.

Published: Last Updated on

Co-Created by Shannon Brescher Shea & Ashia Ray

Good news!
WE DID IT!

We're cheering on...

STAY CURIOUS, STAND BRAVE & SMASH THE KYRIARCHY

You give us hope

This December, we take collective action through boycotts to end genocide and ethnic cleansing.

RESISTBOT TEMPLATES via WATERMELON

Tap 'YES' once a day to lift the siege on Gaza

Sarah Sayer creates new text letter templates with sources, explanations, and calls to end violence against the people of Palestine. Follow @Watermelon on Resistbot and get daily alerts when templates are ready to send.

Or text FOLLOW WATERMELON to the number 50409

BOYCOTT via BOYCOTT DIVESTMENT & SANCTIONS

Know what to boycott

The Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC) calls for a boycott of Israeli and international companies that are complicit in violations of Palestinian rights.

PETITION via #CONGOSTRONG

Call on US Congress & UK Parliament to stop funding genocide in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Western powers have a financial interest in gaining access and control over the Cobalt mines, and what better way to do so than to create societal instability across the country? This is why we need to use our voices.

CAMPAIGNS via IF NOT NOW

Talk About Apartheid

Thousands of American Jews are demanding Biden and all of our elected officials implement and continue a ceasefire. We will channel our grief towards securing a future where all Palestinians, Israelis, and Jews are safe. Will you join us and help stop a genocide?

PETITION via MOMS RISING

Tell US Senate to support paid family leave ASAP

The United States is one of only six countries in the world that guarantees zero weeks of paid family and medical leave. Everyday we are without comprehensive paid leave is a day parents, caregivers, and families are forced to make impossible choices.

PETITION via FAITHFUL AMERICA

Event Venues: Don't Host Franklin Graham

Graham's upcoming spring roadshow is ironically called the "God Loves You Tour" -- ironic because the notoriously bigoted preacher has a history of hatefully calling LGBTQ Americans "evil and rebellious" and of fanning the flames of MAGA conspiracy theories and political violence.

PETITION via CIVIC SHOUT

Support Vaccine Access For Vulnerable Kids

In large swaths of the United States, the new COVID-19 vaccine is not available for kids. Urge the CDC to do everything in its power to ensure the updated COVID-19 vaccine is available to everyone who wants it.

LETTER TEMPLATE via RAISING LUMINARIES

Reject Free Speech Criticism of Zionism & Colonization

Many US states have adopted policies to squelch free speech and criticism of the Israel government's occupation and genocide against Palestinians. Send a letter to your schools, state reps, and committees highlighting the dangers of equating anti-Zionism with antisemitism in US legislation.

FREE VIRTUAL TRAINING via RIGHT TO BE

Bystander Intervention for Educators

In response to the rise in bullying and violence in schools, Right To Be has adapted the 5Ds of bystander intervention training for teachers K-12. Scholarship on bullying and violence in schools, indicates that when teachers model bystander intervention, students are significantly more likely to safely and effectively intervene when witnessing bullying.
