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 South Carolina State Senate, South Carolina State House, Henry McMaster
Remove Racist Monuments from the SC State House Grounds
In 2015, the Confederate flag was removed from the South Carolina State House grounds, but we still have work to do. Statues glorifying the Civil War, Jim Crow, and individuals who exploited or harmed African American people still remain. Two examples of statues that should be removed depict Ben "Pitchfork" Tillman and J. Marion Sims. Tillman was a known member of a white supremacist organization who continued to whip his free Black workers after Emancipation. He led groups that lynched and murdered countless Black people for trying to vote or for supporting Reconstruction efforts. Sims performed gynecological experiments on enslaved women and their children without the use of anesthesia. His experiments include using a shoemaker's tool to pry open the skulls of Black babies. Monuments are erected to honor and esteem and our State House serves as a symbol of pride for our entire state. Allowing these antiquated monuments to remain on the grounds suggests that these statues are representative of all South Carolinians. The people and events depicted are a part of history but it is a part of history that should not be celebrated. I support the removal of these statues to a more appropriate place and that they be replaced with monuments celebrating the diversity and positive history of our great state. Let's make it happen!

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 People who care about the Asian Community and it's people
Get Susan Kenny fired from CPS
My name is Jen Chen and I’m currently a student at UIUC. Prior to college, I attended Chicago Public Schools for my elementary, middle, and high school education. In my 15 years of being in the system, I’ve experienced some incredibly traumatic moments that have changed my life for the worst and one situation in particular has continuously affected me for the past 2 and a half years. This is Susan Kenny and she’s currently a PE teacher at Senn High School in Chicago. Aside from this position, she’s also a Driver’s Ed coach at Amundsen High School and during the time that I was receiving my training there. Susan was blatantly racist and biased towards me for being Asian and if you’re familiar with racial stereotypes. Then you would know that Asians are perceived to be bad drivers even though that’s not always true. However despite this stereotype not being true to every Asian individual out there, Susan failed to leave this bias behind and repeatedly treated me poorly in a way that wasn’t shown towards all of the other students that weren’t Asian. From saying that I practically “killed” someone when I accidentally hit a cone to not letting me get into a car with her, it seemed like she had no shame in showing her racist biases. Even though I wished I’d spoken up about this sooner, I was afraid to do so as CPS handles these situations poorly and above all. I didn’t know what was her name, however. Not too long ago, I stumbled upon an article on social media regarding a different teacher from the same school who had been fired for being racist and decided to learn more about this situation. I came across the school’s website and saw Susan’s picture next to her name. Afterwards, I decided that it was time to speak up and I reached out to the school’s principal to talk about this situation. However even after the conversation, not much has happened and Susan Kenny is still a teacher at Senn. This is completely unacceptable and this situation cannot further escalate, especially with what the Asian community has been through since the start of this pandemic. Racism til this day is still incredibly normalized towards community and if Susan Kenny isn’t fired. She will continue to be part of a problem that has plagued the Asian community for centuries to the point where our existence feels like a death sentence.
Petition to Babylon Village Public Arts Commission, Village of Babylon
Remove the Robert Moses statue in Babylon, NY
Robert Moses has left behind a long legacy of prejudice and gentrification, specifically targeting the Black and Jewish communities. Through his role in building infrastructure throughout Long Island, he supported tactics leading to housing segregation so Long Island neighborhoods were predominantly inhabited by White Christian folks. Yet, many still praise him for his work, calling him a “true visionary.” Specifically, the Babylon Village Public Arts Commission funded a project to erect a Robert Moses statue in 2002, which now stands in front of the Babylon Village Town Hall. A plaque included with statue contains exaggerated language glorifying Moses, saying that he had an “eye to the future” and “preserved the integrity of the Long Island shoreline while creating a legacy for future generations.” The true “future” that Moses envisioned was divided and prejudiced. The plaque only mentions his injustices once, saying that he was a “dominant and sometimes controversial force.” This statue clearly fails to adequately acknowledge his disregard for human lives for the sake of superficial innovation. Moses also built the Lincoln Center area of New York City after he misplaced communities of color. He gave Fordham University the land to build a second campus, and the university named the outdoor plaza after him and erected a statue commemorating him in 2016. This was met with immediate outage on behalf of the students, and the university swiftly removed the statue. We are asking that Babylon Village does the same, as the statue represents a long history of systemic racism and anti-semitism.
