Tell Google: Delete Location Data to Protect Abortion Seekers

Person holding a smartphone with the Google logo onscreen

This petition reads:

“Google must stop collecting individual location data now to protect abortion seekers from policing and geofence warrants.”


If the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, people who want abortions will need to travel to states where it remains protected or seek abortion medication online. But police can use individual location data from smartphones to track and prosecute people who seek abortions.

Right now, police use geofence warrants to harvest data about every person in a given location at a specific time. These warrants – and the individual location data they harvest – put people seeking abortions at risk of policing and prosecution.

That’s why we need Google to stop collecting individual location data now to protect abortion seekers from invasive data collection and policing.

Sign the petition if you agree: Google must take action and delete location data to protect people seeking abortions.

Tell Disney: Stop blocking abortion access

Corporations have a responsibility to step up in the wake of the Supreme Court decision that eliminated the federal right to an abortion. Disney took an important stance by creating a policy to support employees who have to travel out of state to get abortion care. But, Disney is part of the reason this decision was handed down! They need to halt donations to anti-abortion politicians.

In 2020, 53% of all of Disney’s political giving was to anti-abortion politicians. Disney can’t claim to be a pro-family organization when they are giving to anti-family politicians who want to control our own reproductive health decisions. Sign our petition calling on them to stop their harmful giving now!

Sign Now: Legalize Marijuana

Legal marijuana is a billion dollar business in states representing more than half of the country―but the federal government is stifling this movement and alienating voters by remaining committed to decades of failed prohibition policy.

The federal prohibition on cannabis harms communities of color, who have been disproportionately prosecuted for drug offenses, while white investors profit. According to the most recent arrest data, an American is put into handcuffs for a marijuana offense every 90 seconds. Per the ACLU, black Americans are nearly 4 times more likely to be arrested than their white counterparts, despite similar consumption rates.

Maintaining marijuana prohibition flies in the face of voters, who consistently support legalization. Where marijuana legalization has been on the ballot, it has won, often overwhelmingly. Whichever party seizes the mantle of legal cannabis will have an advantage at the ballot box.  

Legalization cannot wait and only together we will win. Please, sign your name and join our grassroots coalition in delivering an end to marijuana prohibition within the United States.

[Add your name] Immigrants Are Facing Deportation Without a Lawyer!

Too often, immigrants are deported not because they legally cannot stay in the United States, but simply because they can’t afford an attorney. Of the more than 1.25 million people with pending cases in the immigration court system, 500,000 lack representation.

Immigrants are our community members. They are our friends, neighbors, colleagues, and family. To leave them without adequate support and representation is immoral and unethical. That’s why Vera, along with more than 100 of our partners, demands a nationwide immigration public defense system.

Tell Congress: People in detention and facing deportation deserve legal representation. >>

The US immigration system routinely expects immigrants with no legal representation to navigate a confusing maze of outdated rules and procedures. This process creates an unconscionable risk of wrongly deporting people, tearing families apart, and placing immigrants back in life-threatening circumstances they have tried to escape.

Sign the Vera Institute of Justice’s petition today to ensure that all people facing deportation have a fair day in court. >>
