Alicia Dabney is a Native-American fire fighter who faced, perhaps one of the most atrocious cases of discrimination within the US Federal government. Ms. Dabney works for the USDA Forest Service in California. Today, August 3, 2012 Alicia Dabney was fired after her numerous complaints and allegations of physical and sexual assault, and other complaints of harassment. Her male co-workers have physically and emotionally demeaned her by calling her a 'whore' after breaking into her hotel room where they attempted to rape her.The men who attempted to rape her, break into her room, publicly called her a whore, made her urinate in front of the other men, and made her tell them when her period started. Alicia has recorded phone calls from her supervisor that were of a highly graphic and sexual nature, and yet out of everyone involved, Alicia has been the only one to be released from her job. Alicia has fought and is now fighting through her 11th investigation through the OIG. Alicia Dabney was at the top of her class at the Academy and has always had successful performance evaluations, and never had a misconduct issue. This is a petition to REINSTATE Alicia Dabney and for justice to be brought to her situation.
Please take the time to listen to the call she recorded between her and her supervisor whom she filed a complaint with and shortly after was placed on administrative leave, and then fired.

Women Unite! WE CANNOT ALLOW THIS TYPE OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT TO CONTINUE! Please sign, spread the word, We are asking President Obama to look into this case and grant Alicia Dabney justice!

      Interestingly, even though bullying permeates federal agencies, officials have failed to effectively address it in the workplace. Many civil servants (i.e., analysts, agents, air traffic controllers, marshals, prison guards, fire-fighters) endure oppressive behavior daily while performing vital tasks to keep U.S. citizens healthy and secure. To our nation's peril, the workplace harassment of public servants remains unchecked. As a consequence, it poses a haunting threat to our homeland security. Each year, thousands of federal employees flock to union offices, personnel offices, and civil rights offices to report injurious managerial acts of abuse, coercion, and cruelty. Internal bullying continues to negatively impact the quality, safety and efficiency of goods and services the government renders to the public.

      I endured similar verbal abuse by my CHP supervisor many years ago. Luckily due to strict state laws, I kept my job, just had to endure the verbal crap. This should not happen in any FEDERAL agency, regardless of race.

      This is very important to me because i am Alicia Dabney's father. If i had known that these guys had been treating my daughter this way they wouldn't be alive today. President Obama has two duaghters of his own and he shouldn't let something like this to happen under his adminstration.
