 https://www.change.org/p/steve-bannon-s-racist-anti-semitic-misogynistic-views-don-t-belong-in-the-white-house

2. Where you're from :

I am currently on the west coast. I reside in California I am media contributor and a mom. I feel  strongly about the direction this  country is going in and want to do everything in my power to be a source and light for all those who oppose the new adminstration under Donald Trump

3. Your relationship to the parties you're raising funds for :

I became inspired when I started receiving email after email from Change.org petiton signers who  were experincing finanicail hardship and were very afraid for their futures. some are even on the brink of homelessness.  

With the Social Security Reform Act of 2016  being introduced into the house I became  even more concerned as Social Security  is how millions of Americans  pay their bills and survive..  

So I am starting a Non profit organization that will aid and assist people in financial crisis and have no where to turn.  I  feel very strongly about intruducing bills to counter act the new administrations agenda such as lobbying for a bill that would make decreasing SSI benefits for the disabled , retired vets and  the elderly. illegal. 

4. How the funds will be spent (be specific as possible)
-Register for a 501(c)(4)
-Hire a Lobbyist to draft bill 
-Website for Non Profit 
-Grant Writer for Non Profit Development 
-Part-time Staff Employee 
-Fax Machine 
-Printer
-Office Phone

5. How you intend to get the funds to those in need

After I have reached the goal to get the  non profit in legal standing I will start the grant proposal process.to acquire a grant for assisting individulas or Familes who need financial help  

.I will use the non profit website  and fliers to promote our services for assisting those in need who  are working  or rely on Social Security payments and just aren't making ends meet. and or people whose income prevents  them from getting governent assistance

The applicants to the assitance program will be able to use our grant money for emergency expenses,

Child Care  
medical care payments (Uncovered) 
Appliance repair  
Clothes for Work
Rent/Morgage  
Groceries 
Electricity
Heat/Gas
Phone  Bill 
Baby On The Way Items 
Hygiene Products



2017-2020 Resistance To The New Administration 

The chief aim is to help those who will be affected by some of the news laws passed by our new administration.   We also plan to use the funds to counteract laws that are a threat to us all.

First thing on the agenda is the Social Security Reform Act of 2016   the bill will affect American's as follows 

Workers making around $50,000 would see checks shrink by between 11% and 35%.

-- The first year for receiving full benefits would climb to 67.

-- Nearly every income bracket would see a reduction, save for the very bottom.

-- People making around $12,280 in 2016 who have worked for 30 years would see an increase of around 20%.

-- But young people making the same amount would be hit hard by the changes. If they had 14 years of work experience by 2016, they would see their benefits cut in half.

-- The plan would also cut entirely cost of living adjustments (COLA) for retirees earning above $85,000.

That last item on killing the COLA would hurt the most. Keep in mind that Social Security is the only government retirement benefit that adjusts payments based on inflation. If the cost of living goes up, you can keep up with rising prices -- somewhat.

There is no COLA for 401(k) or IRA withdrawals. And private, inflation-adjusted annuities are the exception, not the rule.

Moreover, there's a better way of funding Social Security, which will begin to trim payments in 2034 if nothing is done. Simply raise the earnings cap subject to Social Security taxes, which is set artificially low at $118,000.

That means if you make that amount of money -- or less -- you're paying the same Social Security tax as millionaires and billionaires. If you make more, you can afford to pay more.

As it stands now, the GOP Social Security slashing is going to get a running start in next year's Congress. The mainstream GOP has long supported such a move, in addition to moving along a plan to privatize and raise the eligibility age for Medicare (to 67).

Please stand with  millions of Americans in solidarity in creating a new path that will open many doors for us all 

We must come together as one, united we will not fail.
