HELP SAVE DUSTIN JOHN HIGGS
This is Dustin john higgs & he’s on death row , he was accused of killing 3 girls and later on they found out that he wasn’t the one who killed them . Their only reasoning on putting him on death row is because they said that he was there , and they said that he bullied the person who did kill those 3 girls into doing it even though, Willis Hayes the one who did commit the murders said that he did not bully him into killing them. Please get the word out so we can save his life !!
Petition to Congress
A Harriet Tubman Federal Holiday
There is not a single federal holiday in remembrance of a woman. Harriet Tubman was not only an inspirational figure for woman, the African American population, but for humanity as a whole to do what is right.

Re-open the Department of Justice's investigation into the shooting death of Miriam Carey.
On October 3, 2013 Miriam Iris Carey was shot and killed by unidentified officers of assigned to the United States Capitol Police and Secret Service Uniform Division in Washington, DC. Miriam was UNARMED with her 13 month baby in the backseat of her car at the time of the shooting. The preliminary and final investigations performed by the Metropolitan Police Department indicated Miriam violated no laws. [Secret Service ‘Willful’ Violations of Policies Caused Death of Miriam Carey http://buff.ly/1KsOjLM] Since that fateful day, the United States Department of Justice has refused to bring criminal or civil rights charges against the officers despite having clear evidence, they acted in a 'willful' manner. To this day, unlike other similar police shootings where President Barack Obama, the United States Congress and Department of Justice called for and insisted there be FULL public disclosure of the documents and facts have refused provide FULL public disclosure of the documents and facts in Miriam's case. WorldNet Daily ('Smoking-gun documents prove unarmed mom wrongly killed' http://www.wnd.com/2015/06/smoking-gun-documents-prove-unarmed-mom-wrongly-killed/) and the Washington Post (How Miriam Carey's U-turn at a White House Checkpoint Led to her Death http://www.washingtonpost.com/sf/style/2014/11/26/how-miriam-careys-u-turn-at-a-white-house-checkpoint-led-to-her-death/) investigations raises serious questions about the government's official explanation about the shooting. Please join us in petitioning the White House, United States Congress and the United States Department of Justice to re-open the Department of Justice's investigation into the 'avoidable' shooting death of Miriam Iris Carey by United States Capitol Police and Secret Service and for the United States Congress to hold parallel Congressional Hearings about the surrounding circumstances of the shooting. Please join the Carey Family as we seek FULL public disclosure of the documents and the facts surrounding Miriam's 'avoidable' death by signing this petition.

Petition to Kathie Kudela
Remove Yowawa Media From The NACC
Yowawa Media has been giving a platform to fascist groups who committed treason on January 6th by taking place in the failed coup at our Nation's capitol building. The podcasts that they air are riddled with hate speech, transphobia, sexism and false information about the global pandemic. The first amendment is absolutely important, but not when it is giving fascism a platform and when it encourages behavior that is a threat to the health and well being of everyone in our community. Please sign and share and get this media company removed from a loved and cherished staple in Niagara Falls.
Petition to Montgomery County School Board, CMCSS
Change the Racist Mascot of Montgomery Central Schools
Montgomery Central Elementary, Middle, and High schools need to change their racist mascot. They are the "Indians," and their logo is a red and white feather. Mascots like this are dehumanizing and reductive to the Indigenous community, and many schools have changed theirs because of this. Montgomery Central Elementary, Middle, and High schools have changed theirs from a person's head to the red and white feather, but the racism clearly remains. There are numerous studies that prove that these types of mascots contribute to a toxic learning environment and decreased mental health for indigenous people and students worldwide. No one should ever have a person as their mascot, but racial ones are even worse. The stereotypes perpetuated by these mascots centralize aggressive traits and contribute to uneducated generalizations about the Native community. This leads to higher rates of violence and discrimination against them. In addition, the stereotypes these mascots are built around were created by non-Natives, and they were never rooted in accuracy. These stereotypes were anti-indigenous propaganda used by colonizers to justify their violence and imperialism, and continuing the use of them today just perpetuates the generational trauma of that community. This is a petition to change the mascot of Montgomery Central Elementary, Middle, and High schools in Cunningham, Tennessee. There is more information about this on our student group's social justice page on Instagram @youth.equality.alliance
Petition to School board and administrators
CHANGE RIDLEY’S MASCOT!
For years, Ridley School District’s mascot has been The Raider, a title accompanied by an image of a Native American. This image is a caricature of indigenous people, and pairing it with the term Raider, which means thief, perpetuates negative stigma. It is time that Ridley School District changes their mascot image and title to something that is not racist. With the help of your signature, we can show the school board and administrators of the district that we as students will not be silent to this racism any longer.
Petition to Williamson County Commissioners, Williamson County Judge
Remove the Confederate Monument from the “Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas”
June 7, 2020 Dear Williamson County Commissioners, I respectfully request a removal of the Confederate Civil War monument from the Williamson County Courthouse grounds located in the "Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas". Like the signs for ‘white’ or ‘colored’ restrooms or drinking fountains, the monument erected during the Jim Crow era of racism against African Americans, is considered to be intimidating and disrespectful to the Black community. For this reason alone, the monument simply must be removed if the town square truly is a place where everyone is equally welcome. In the same way the UT Austin students cried out to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for help with their integration efforts in the 60's, the peaceful protesters, mothers, fathers, children, brothers and sisters all over the world are crying out for justice to people like you today. I do believe in honoring the veterans as the United Daughters of the Confederacy did by erecting the monument in 1916. I am a granddaughter of a wounded veteran, and my uncle was killed in the WWII at age 19 in Hiroshima, Japan, not too far from where those twelve American POWs died. I was taught to honor all people even when the nations fight against nations. I was taught to learn from history and work toward world peace. The monument can be moved to a new location where ALL Civil War veterans are honored and the visitors can learn from the history. We must not forget that Emancipation Proclamation was not delivered to Texas until almost two and half years after President Lincoln signed it. We must not forget that many Confederate Soldier statues were erected to intimidate African Americans that continued to suffer brutality after they were set free and they still do today. We must not forget that Dr. King visited the UT campus to fight for justice alongside the students because many businesses were refusing to end segregation. We must not forget that Texans were taught that slavery was a side issue of the Civil War until 2019-2020 school year. And most of all, we must not forget that injustice is done to black people still today, every day, even in our community. I hope that the history of the “Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas” will soon include the removal of the Confederate monument. I hope that the great people of the Williamson County believe it is never too late to do the right thing even though it has been over 150 years since President Lincoln issued the proclamation declaring “…all persons…shall be free.” Kindest regards, Ayaka Kubo
