Dammed to extinction, Southern Resident Orcas are starving. Time is running out!

The 73 remaining wild critically endangered salmon-eating Southern Resident Orcas are starving and dying. An effective breeding population less than 30 is all that is left. These orcas are nearing the point of no recovery. Help us tell the Department of Energy to breach the Lower Snake River Dams this year: https://p2a.co/GzfP143 After looking at the script, click 'Start your call,' and we'll call you with instructions and then patch you through—it only takes 3 minutes total to leave your message! Why are the Southern Residents starving? More than 50% of their diet comes from salmon produced in the Columbia Basin, half of which were once produced in the Snake River System. Four fish-killing dams on the lower Snake River have decimated the wild salmon and Steelhead runs. How is dam breaching possible? Since 2002, the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the lower Snake River has designated dam breaching as the best solution to recover Snake River wild salmon.  The Army Corps of Engineers can implement breaching the dams now by using the existing 2002 EIS's "Breach Alternative Four." The Impact and Benefits of Breaching: • If the lower Snake River dams were breached, it would double or triple salmon survival rates, restoring millions of fish to the Columbia Basin. • Give the orcas a fighting chance to recover by increasing their food supply. • Breaching costs the state nothing. The first two dams can be breached for about the cost of the 2020 CRSO EIS, an estimated $80 million. Breaching could take as little as 5 years to complete. It would cost less to save the salmon than to kill them. • The four lower Snake River dams in Eastern Washington do not provide flood control and produce only low value surplus electricity. • Savings from breaching these dams can be applied to more efficient dams and/or projects. • NOTHING else, not more spill across the dams, not more hatchery fish, not less boat traffic, not more studies, not a new EIS can improve conditions in time to save wild salmon or Southern Resident Orcas. Congressional Legislation or new appropriations are not needed to start breaching the Snake River dams this year! Senators Murray and Cantwell and Governor Inslee — Please take action today and urge President Biden to begin breaching the dams this year. Thank you to the hundreds of thousands who have petitioned for immediate dam breaching, for those of you who want more information on how to save the salmon and orcas, visit DamTRUTH

BAN THE DOG AND CAT MEAT TRADE WORLDWIDE- Coronavirus Is Only The Beginning

We implore you to call for a worldwide ban against one of the most horrifying atrocities known as the dog and cat meat trade in Asia. Receiving global condemnation, one of the largest petitions ever recorded in history was that against this trade, as millions of Asian citizens scream for outside help. An estimated 30 million dogs and 10 million cats (mainly STOLEN PETS) are taken and purposefully, sadistically and mercilessly TORTURED prior to being barbarically killed by means of being blow-torched, skinned and boiled ALIVE for human consumption every year. It is based off a misguided belief that the more and longer you torture them, the more adrenaline rushes through their bodies therefore, making the meat tastier and increasing men’s virility. The footage will bring you to your knees. As these animals are filmed screaming in unfathomable, incomprehensible pain, they are mocked, laughed at and even urinated on as they writhe in agony. On 9/12/18, the USA had taken a stand against this trade with the passing of both; H.R.6720 - Dog and Cat Meat Trade Prohibition Act of 2018 - A federal bill that prohibits the slaughter of dogs and cats for human consumption in the United States.                                   H.Res.401- A global resolution which urges all nations to outlaw the dog and cat meat trade and to enforce existing laws against such trade. Though every continent upon this earth rejoiced over this news, sadly, that is where it ended. The USA unfortunately did not follow through (utilizing these legislations) to in fact "urge" anyone. Now we have the Coronavirus to deal with which, is only the beginning of numerous infectious diseases that could potentially spread when you have lawless, unrestricted nations in regards to animal protection, their slaughter and consumption. Like the wildlife trade and live markets, the dog and cat meat trade is unregulated, violates every food and safety regulation and is associated with various transmittable diseases such as Rabies (killing 39,000 people in Asia annually), E. Coli, Salmonella, Anthrax, Brucellosis, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Cholera, Trichinellosis, putting us all at risk heading straight towards catastrophe.  The time is now, to call upon China and the rest of the world to ban the consumption of not only wild but domesticated animals too. To act solely upon one, without the other, permits only the next global pandemic to take root. The dog and cat meat trade is not about culture. It is not about eating meat. It's about prolonged, systematic torture. This brutality committed upon the innocent is so vile, so unconscionable, so shocking, it's an outright abhorrent abomination to millions of people,  to humanity and to God. Please call for a worldwide ban and the enactment of animal welfare laws. After all, they only put the entire world into jeopardy.    Thank you In Memory Of The Honorable Alcee Hastings

STEPing ahead with reform to stop an Imminent danger by Power abuse

Always a mother’s grief triggers a deep emotional response in all of us. Mother and loved one again want to go public and plea for help; it’s not only a cry for help but asking our nation for action. Please help stop corruption in Florida Pasco County Courts- Remove Judge Alicia Polk. There are countless clear vicious actions that warrant harsh discipline that breaches and violated the rules of judicial misconduct. Judge Alicia refuse to show remorse, empathy or regret during her proceedings in a messy custody case. After she recused herself; she continues to hide and maintain control over this case outcome; and to justify her actions with more cruel behavior. It’s highly unusual for a judge to intentionally hurt CHILDREN; that fact alone underscores the gravity of this situation and the seriousness of this situation.The effectiveness of our justice system ultimately rest on the trust and confidence that people confer on our justice and judges who practice this law, and that confidence has been affected and undermine by the grossly actions this judge has exhibited. Years of being forced to deal with this monster and put up a hell of a fight with a psycho pathetic Judge and Ex husband that means you just asking for trouble. When Alicia Polk sees my children and mother she gets upset and trigger her rage.Dealing with her It’s the alternative universe of a classic narcissistic. The fact that Judge Alicia Polk reoffend weighs heavily on me. The tyrant and antagonism behavior she had shown in my case and other forms persuade me to reject sitting watching injustice.Polk’s escalating patter of abuse and unprofessionalism WILL AND MUST COME TO AN END. After she recused herself Polk fell over emotional cliff and turned her into a monster. She snaps in split seconds and turn up at court room behind door wanting the ultimate revenge because I exposed her and tried to launch investigation. When she lost control and desires lust destroying others life she HERSELF NOT A CHIEF JUDGE OR SUPREME COURT REASSIGN THIS CASE TO DAVID ELLIS WHO IMPERSONATE A JUDGE.To narcissists If reality doesn’t just fit their dreams well they create their own reality. This Judge and David Ellis are a true narcissist pure and simple.She is inventive liar thrive on the admiration of others and the need she have to have. she grabs a knife and keeps going in total she framed me to get arrested by Pasco County School resource officer on a warrant “contempt of court” Scandalous enough during Christmas holidays back on December 28th 2020 she plotted to schedule court hearing on emergency motion; this conspiracy staged hearing occurred AFTER FINAL TRIAL AND BEFORE SIGNING FINAL JUDGMENT. Polk with help of other accomplices managed to throw me in Jail for 22 days to stop me from appealing the final judgment. Polk made the decision to cut my relationship with my kids; often times no contact means is a very last resort as punishment. Alicia Polk don’t think that rules applies to her and of course she doesn’t believe she should be held accountable. In her courtroom she seems to be confident but as a typical narcissists of course, she is massively insecure, jealous, resentful and dishonest. From day one I dealt with this vile evil judge I saw all the warning signs; she is a master mind FU**ER who decides to annex minor children to use them as trade prisoners of war. Dealing with her is like dealing with heartless mad outrageous wild animal she lacks values and integrity. During proceedings she presided over, She finally decide to completely rob children from justice and their mother only to enjoy the good fortune of others to feed her disgusting desires, greed and willingness to hurt others for an extended pay check. None of us can go back in time and correct the mischievous of this wild animal behavior That unfairly charged the lives of my family and three innocent children. This indeed a sad day for me; a sad day for the people in United States and a sad day for our Judiciary system for which our people depend on justice.Let’s all stop Polk from violating American children and deprive citizen from their civil rights by bullying, belittling and threatening an already distraught mother; a domestic violence victims who made a decision to move away from abusive partner. please sign my petition to fight back this type of thug behavior, and help send a message that it will not be tolerated.   Regardless of your political stance, we hope you can find it in your heart to listen to and protect children from this gruesome violence.

U​.​S. Needs to Accept Ukrainian Refugees IMMEDIATELY

*UPDATE: April 21st, 2022* A HUGE THANK YOU and congratulations to everyone who has signed, shared, and promoted this petition! Your efforts have helped to build pressure toward changing policies to help Ukrainian Refugees in need. On April 21st, President Biden announced Uniting for Ukraine, a New Streamlined Process to Welcome Ukrainians Fleeing Russia's Invasion of Ukraine. Uniting for Ukraine is a streamlined process for Ukrainian citizens who have been displaced by Russia’s aggression to apply for humanitarian parole in the United States for a period of up to two years. Click here for the full announcement and information on how to apply starting on April 25th. We will continue to watch as refugees begin to apply and seek shelter in the United States to ensure that they are able to make it here to safety soon. Additionally, given that 5 million people have left Ukraine, 100,000 will only make a small dent in the overall resettlement support needed. We hope that the Administration will monitor for future needs as the crisis in Ukraine continues. _________________________________________________________________ My name is Ashley Testa and my family is in crisis. On the morning of February 23rd, my family woke up to the sound of explosions followed by artillery fire. They quickly fled and piled into the car. Despite the fact that my husband, Misha, has U.S. citizenship, our family was not allowed to seek refuge in the U.S. At present, there is NO official Ukrainian Refugee Program in the U.S. for Ukrainian families to come to the United States—even for those who have immediate family members as U.S. citizens or residents or official sponsors. Misha’s mother, sister, sister-in-law, and our four nieces and nephews, ages 5-12, left everything behind. Most tragically, they had to leave their fathers, husbands, sons behind. We do not know if or when they will be reunited. Our family drove towards Poland while bombs went off in the background. They had to share blankets to stay warm in the frigid weather and ration their limited food and gas. After 5 days of driving, they reached the border.  They planned to board a plane to the U.S., but realized that since only one family member had a U.S. green card, they could not go to the U.S. as a family. We were shocked. Luckily, since then, 7 of our family members have received visa approval. However, this is incredibly rare. Only 7 Ukrainian refugees resettled in the U.S. from March 1 - 16. Appointments for Ukrainians to interview for a U.S. visa are booked out through September. Most will also not be approved. Other options such as the Family Reunification immigration process currently have a wait time of about 15 years! President Biden has made several statements over the past week stating that he would “welcome Ukrainian refugees with open arms,” but has yet to do something about it. Lawmakers have proposed solutions, such as offering Humanitarian Parole, and are waiting for action. We beg you to allow Ukrainian families to come here. We’re on our hands and knees. They’ve been through enough. They’ve lost everything. My hope is to reach 500,000 signatures in order to demonstrate the passion of the American people to help refugees to resettle here to President Biden.

Free Austin Tice, a journalist detained in Syria since 2012

I call upon the Biden Administration to prioritize the release and safe return of journalist and Marine veteran Austin Tice. Austin was reporting on the conflict in Syria when he was arrested in 2012. Since then he has been detained in secret and in silence.  This month Austin turns 40. He has spent most of his 30s in prison. It is well past time for him to come home. Austin traveled to Syria to document the conditions that were leading to the greatest refugee crisis since WWII. At the time very few journalists were working in Syria because of the danger involved. The world was not getting the story of what was happening on the ground. Austin worked for McClatchy Newspapers, The Washington Post and CBS News as a freelancer. He was arrested and detained because he was a journalist. If Austin is allowed to be held it shows that journalism can be stopped by throwing journalists in prison. His detention serves to intimidate journalists from covering events in the Middle East. Austin has been detained longer than any other U.S. Journalist. The United States must show it is committed to protect American journalists from hostage taking and committed to bringing hostages home.  In September 2020, representatives from the US government met with representatives of the Syria government to discuss the framework of a deal to free Austin. The ball is now in the court of the United States and they must respond and continue the discussion. The Biden Administration must prioritize Austin's release. He must come home! May it be soon.

Cut U​.​S. taxpayer funds for China's wet markets!

China's "wet markets" are gruesome and dangerous places, where wild animals—as well as cats and dogs—are slaughtered and eaten as food. These disease-ridden wet markets are linked to the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak and previous pandemics including SARS. Reports also indicate that in China experimental lab animals are sometimes sold to wet markets for human consumption, after being abused and infected! But here's the worst part: Your tax dollars have been keeping China’s wet markets in business for years. Last year, White Coat Waste Project (WCW) exposed how the U.S. government sent federal employees on taxpayer-funded shopping sprees at Chinese wet markets to buy cats and puppies. They then had them slaughtered, and brought their body parts back to the United States—in carry-on luggage—to feed to kittens in bizarre and wasteful multi-million-dollar kitten cannibalism experiments. We ended USDA’s shopping spree in China, closed its “Kitten Slaughterhouse” following an intensive campaign, and adopted out the survivors—including Delilah and Petite--to loving homes. Now must do it again …. across the ENTIRE federal government by passing Delilah’s Law (S. 3628)! Please sign and share this urgent petition urging President Trump to pass Delilah’s Law to cut off ALL tax funding for China’s wet markets.

They Stood with Us: Save Iraqi Family Under Immediate Threat for Working with U​.​S. Troops

Mohammed, a 67-year-old Iraqi, and his family are in grave danger because of their affiliation with the U.S. military and desperately need to be granted refugee status in the United States before it’s too late. Multiple generations of Mohammed’s family have risked their lives for U.S. forces and to bring freedom and safety to Iraq. Two of his sons served as interpreters for the U.S. Army, and his brother interpreted for the Marine Corps. All three of them had their lives threatened, and one son was shot in the face by militia. Mohammed’s brother was shot, killed, and left dead in a dumpster when the militia found out about his work. Please sign my petition asking the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to expedite processing of the family’s refugee case that was approved approved over four years ago on a conditional basis.  Three of Mohammed’s children (the two interpreter brothers and one of their sisters) have already been resettled in recognition of their sacrifices for the United States. But Mohammed, his wife, and his three other children (including a 14-year-old daughter) remain in Iraq, where they are in hiding due to their history of support for the U.S. and the deteriorating security situation in Iraq.  While they wait for their case to be finalized, they remain a prime target for terrorist organizations.  After over decade of vetting, they continue to fear for their lives and the risk of being them being killed because of their affiliation with the U.S. is increased the longer their case is delayed. Mohammed and his family firmly believe in the importance of U.S. national security – the family collectively made the decision to defend it at great personal risk.      Yet, in November of 2016, the family received a devastating denial of their refugee case with no explanation.  American citizens rallied behind the family and over 22,000 signatures were gathered on Change.org asking USCIS to review the decision in light of the sacrifices the family has made for the U.S.  USCIS considered the entirety of the evidence and made a wrong right by overturning their previous denial.  We are incredibly grateful for the USCIS officials who took a hard look at the case and put this family back on track for refugee resettlement to the US.  However, it is important to remember that the ordeal is not over until the day the family safely escapes Iraq, lands stateside, and clears customs.    Mohammed and his family have been through enough.  They have had family members killed and wounded and they have had their family torn apart.  All of this is because of their loyalty to the U.S. It is time to bring the rest of the family to new home in the U.S.  They deserve to be reunited and should no longer fear daily for their lives.  Sign my petition to ask USCIS to finalize their case.  We made a promise to protect this family. We cannot let this family die at the hands of our common enemy.

Abolishing Daylight Saving Time

Abolish Daylight Saving time!? Can we do it? Yes, we can! Should we!? Well, 4 U.S. States already have! Those 4 States, and our U.S. territories, do not observe Daylight Saving time. A federal change of the remaining states is what I am petitioning for, not just a state waiver. Before we dive in, what’s Daylight Saving Time? Some don’t know, and that’s okay. DST starts on the second Sunday in March when the clocks “Spring forward” one hour and DST ends on the first Sunday in November when we “Fall backwards” one hour (back to Standard Time,) disrupting our sleeping patterns not once, but twice a year! Ugh. So, who else wants the Federal Government and Department of Transportation to end the Uniform Time Act of 1966, give us back our Standard Time and in simpler words, quit messing with our clocks!? When we “Fall Back” to Standard Time this first Sunday in November 2020, let’s petition to keep it there, permanently!!The early 1900s wars that encouraged DST are over, there’s little benefits to Daylight Saving, in fact, there’s proven health risks! (Link below)  There are benefits in remaining on Standard Time permanently. The benefit of Standard Time in the winter is that the sun will rise earlier! This helps to clear our vehicles of frost and ice, ensures our children do not wait for their bus in the dark and if we keep it permanently, there are so many health benefits! I can’t speak for America. Only you can do your research and sign for yourself. I believe we should all make a vote on it. Personally, I would rather see Standard Time on a federal level (every state) permanently all year round and sleep patterns undisturbed. Please consider signing and sharing this petition targeted at the “Time Controllers,” our Federal Government, the Department of Transportation and specifically the Uniform Time Act of 1966 that was introduced into our amendments making this a standard, federally recognized occurrence. It is more than just a sleep nuisance, it is a health risk to change the clocks twice a year!  “We found four prominent, elevated risk clusters, including cardiovascular diseases (such as heart attacks), injuries, mental and behavioral disorders, and immune-related diseases such as noninfective enteritis and colitis to be significantly associated with DST shifts in the United States and Sweden. “ -   Jun 8, 2020  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7302868/#idm140107432308336title

Increase federal funding for childhood cancer research from 4% to 8%

  As a parent to a child diagnosed and living with childhood cancer, I am forced to have hard conversations with oncologists and deliver bad news to my daughter, neighbors, and friends, which has become part and parcel of my daily life.   My daughter Mia Ehlers is three years old and has been battling leukemia since she was diagnosed with blood cancer at the tender age of one. She loves to play dolls and make-up, but she cannot engage in other child-loving activities like her peers due to her general body weakness. Mia Ehlers' life story is no different from other children living with childhood cancer.  Glaring statistics from the National Cancer Institute inform us that childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease past infancy among children in the United States. It is estimated in 2022, that over 15,600 children will be diagnosed with childhood cancer, and 1,780 will die of the disease in the Unitedstates.  From the very beginning of its diagnosis, leukemia has been affecting the physical, social, psychological, and spiritual aspects of her childhood, including myself and her mother. Childhood cancer patients and their families go through overwhelming experiences as they exude aggression, anxiety, depression, and communicational problems. Moreover, these children and their caregivers have to bear the brunt of going through the current horrendous and inhumane treatment process, treatment complications, and many other care. related problems. Notably, the parents of children with cancer go through shock, seek denial, and live with double pressure. Their children's disease affects every aspect of their family lifestyle. Consequently, the quality of life is diminished. Family life is disrupted as family members struggle with a 'new normal' that consists of frequent hospital visits, overwhelming medical bills, and a questionable future where the possibility of the child's death at a young age is always lingering in their minds.  Children who have cancer may be years behind in school and often face the challenge of lasting attentional and memory problems and hearing loss, and other physical limitations. There is a constant fear of relapse, which leaves caregivers and families on constant and overwhelming guard, wondering and worried about the slightest change in body temperature or headache.  As a father and caregiver, I have witnessed my daughter experiencing the long-term psychological effects of intensive cancer treatments. I have seen her living in a constant state of anxiety, depression, and even post-traumatic stress. Her lengthy hospital stays, reoccurrence, increased treatment intensity worsens her post-traumatic stress, which is accompanied by nightmares or flashbacks that make her want to avoid people, places, or things associated with the treatment experience. Further, she has difficulty feeling emotions, feeling helpless, distant, or cut off from others, and feeling anxious or easily startled. These overwhelming experiences are also shared by myself and her mother.  It is noteworthy that the federal government has allocated a mere 4% of government funding for cancer research in the U.S., which is far from enough. This percentage needs to be increased to 8% for proper research. The signing of this petition will facilitate the lobbying and passing of a healthcare policy or law that allocates a higher percentage of national resources to childhood cancer research. The increased funds would be a much-needed shot in the arm as public healthcare institutions would constantly be actively researching childhood cancer all year round, rather than wait for September, the Childhood Cancer Awareness month. By signing this petition, you would be going the extra mile beyond creating awareness over childhood cancer and instead push for the increased budgetary allocation towards this noble cause and enable researchers to find improved ways to identify children that are genetically predisposed to developing childhood cancer, prevent the occurrence of cancer upon a child, better treatment favorable to the child, shorten the time spent in medication, alleviate post treatment side effects, and possibly develop childhood cancer vaccines.  Currently, Mia Has 260 days left of cancer treatment. The thought of having my daughter go through the awful experience is emotionally and mentally draining. If the federal government channeled the necessary funds towards childhood cancer research decades ago, then my daughter and tens of thousands of other suffering children and their families would be spared the pain they are currently going through. By signing this petition, you will be paving the way for the concerned stakeholders to make a direct and lasting impact upon the lives of many future generations of children and their kin. We need 12 million signatures behind this petition to begin lobbying for raising the current fund allocated towards childhood cancer research from 4% to 8%. gofundacure​.​com

President Biden: Clemency for Federal Marijuana Prisoners

The CAN-DO Foundation and Freedom Grow Forever is urging President Biden to free every prisoner serving federal time for marijuana drug cases.  Not one person in the history of our nation has overdosed on marijuana.  Cannabis has become a billion dollar legal industry, for some, while others rot in prison for federal conspiracy cases, including people who thought they were compliant with the laws of their state for medical marijuana, but were indicted and convicted in federal court because the federal government has yet to recognize that cannabis has any medicinal properties.   Both President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris indicated that marijuana prisoners should not remain incarcerated while on the campaign trail. That can easily be achieved with the stroke of the President's pen who can free all cannabis prisoners using his executive clemency power. Please sign our petition and help raise awareness to end the suffering of the following individuals who are currently incarcerated for cannabis.    Countless people do not believe there are people serving time for pot, much less life without parole.  Therefore, we have included the names of several cannabis prisoners (many are now free due to advocacy - see below) with a link to their profile pages so you can read their stories. Most have individual change.org petitions you can also access on their page, sign and share.  Many volunteers give their time free of charge to help us compile the following list that is still growing.
