The daily violence in Russia against the LGBT community is unacceptable and wrong -- and together we are going to do something about it.
Since we launched our campaign calling on Olympic sponsor Visa to speak out, tens of thousands of people including you have taken action and folks are starting to take notice.
Today, Bloomberg news stated in an editorial that unless they speak out against the anti-LGBT violence in Russia and call on the International Olympic Committee to act, Olympic sponsors like "Visa Inc. will be tied to an officially anti-gay Olympics."
Visa has made countless millions from the LGBT community, and even put their name on the “Rainbow Platinum Plus Visa Card," but they haven't taken any meaningful action to help ensure the safety of LGBT athletes and fans for the Winter games.
With less than six months until the Olympics, it's critical that Visa speak out, as an Olympic sponsor, and urge the IOC to take action.
This is exactly why Democrats can not join Republicans in their crusade to cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid... It's heartless. WATCH this then add your name to our campaign to expand Social Security not cut it Add your name here.
Sheryl Tenicat, of Des Moines, starts her story at the 2:00 mark...
“$624 a month. That’s what I live on. 99 of that goes to my Medicare Part ‘A’ and ‘B’. After I get my check in two weeks, it’s gone. I have nothing. I live on what I eat here (at the senior center). I don’t want my cost of living cut because I’ve paid in since I was 16.”
Sheryl's story is all too common. Many seniors' sole source of income is through Social Security, and threats to cut their benefits force them to risk poverty and make them food-insecure.
