Corporate propaganda has infiltrated local TV newscasts, with disguised product advertisements posing as genuine news reports.

Last year, North Carolina legislators passed a strong identity theft protection bill. Unfortunately, the U.S. Congress is considering legislation that would undermine our consumer protections. Ask your state legislators to sign on to a letter to Senators Burr and Dole urging them to oppose any federal legislation that would undermine North Carolina's law.

When the big recording labels pay radio station employees to play their most mainstream acts, independent music suffers and radio choice turns into a mind-numbing race to the bottom. Recent investigations have found widespread abuse - the labels commonly skirt the law by providing gifts and trips rather than direct money in exchange for airplay. It has been 40 years since enactment of the statutes banning payola and the existing rules are not able to stop payola in the age of big radio. Please call your senators today and urge them to co-sponsor the Radio and Concert Disclosure and Competition Act of 2005.

The prices of our everyday necessities like gas, electricity, housing, and food have all been on the rise – but the federal minimum wage hasn’t. It’s been stuck at $5.15 an hour for the last nine years. Hard working Americans deserve better! Please help give these workers a much needed boost. Sign on to co-sponsor the Fair Minimum Wage Act to raise the federal minimum wage to $7.25.
