SCOTUS Decision

People keep asking me, "Delilah, how do you feel about the Supreme court leak? How do you feel about Roe V Wade being overturned?" I am appreciative for the attention to this matter. Especially being a censored candidate and activist. However, I have to laugh because we already lost our reproductive rights here in Texas.

Statement on US Supreme Court's possible overturn of Roe vs. Wade

The US Supreme Court's conservative majority is poised to overturn Roe vs. Wade using arguments that impose control over women's bodies that existed before the historic 1973 decision.

Thanks to Democratic legislators who tripled the signature and vote requirements for ballot access at the urging of then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo as part of the state budget package in April 2020, New York now has one of the most difficult independent nominating petition systems in the nation and the world. Continue reading

This Unjust System Cannot Survive the Storm

By Michael Bagdes-Canning, Green Party Candidate for PA Lieutenant Governor I think our justice system is unjust. Worse, even the injustice is applied unjustly. The poor and disenfranchised are unlikely to get a fair shake. Continue reading
