My Letter to Dr. Pepper to Stop Advertising Soda to Kids

Dear Mr. Young:

Please stop marketing Sun Drop, Crush, and other sodas and sugary drinks to kids 14 and under through advertising, advergames, and the use of child-oriented characters.

Dr Pepper Snapple Group should adopt a comprehensive policy on marketing to children. One way you could demonstrate your sincerity about protecting children is by joining the Council of Better Business Bureaus’ (BBB) Children’s Food and Beverage Advertising Initiative (CFBAI).

Please let me know if you’re willing to protect children from sugary drink marketing.

Will you stand with me to help end campus sexual assault?

Please join me and the thousands upon thousands who have added their name to support crucial legislation to help end sexual assault on college and university campuses.


It’s a fact: 41 percent of colleges and universities recently surveyed had not conducted a single investigation of sexual violence on their campus in the past five years. Not a single one.

And research shows that 90 to 95 percent of rapes on college campuses are committed by fewer than 5 percent of the male students.

Too many universities and colleges refuse to acknowledge the problem – leaving survivors of sexual assault to face untrained administrators, convoluted disciplinary proceedings, and a culture that too often lays the blame on survivors.

This is a solvable problem and you can take action today to help end this epidemic on our college campuses.

The bipartisan Campus Accountability and Safety Act will ensure schools take proactive steps to protect their students and rid their campuses of sexual predators. Will you add your name and demand Congress take action to end campus sexual assault and pass the Campus Accountability and Safety Act?

My Letter to AZ Governor Ducey on Cutting $104 million from State Colleges and Universities

I am writing to you today to express my disappointment in your proposal to cut $104 million from Arizona colleges and universities. Funding higher-ed is a key part to ensuring that Arizona can sustain a successful economy for decades. This news is disparaging and I am deeply concerned with the consequences that this will have for our state and community.
