#KeepPrayerFree & stop T-Mobile from charging callers for prayer on free conference lines

Prayer should never come with a cost. The right to pray for free is under attack by T-Mobile. Despite its aggressive advertising campaign – including Super Bowl spots – positioning the company as the #Uncarrier for offering the “first unlimited subscription” void of surcharges, bogus fees and assorted taxes, the mobile conglomerate is waging a war on prayer. T-Mobile is blatantly, but surreptitiously charging an additional $0.01 per minute to customers who call prayer lines using free conference call services. One such service that has been affected is FreeConferenceCall.com, of which tens of thousands of prayer line callers have been affected by these charges and have taken to social media to voice their opinions about T-Mobile. Many T-Mobile customers call into prayer lines multiple times a week to pray with others for long periods of time, resulting in hundreds of dollars a year added to their service plan costs. By forcing them to pay additional fees for these calls, T-Mobile is effectively cutting off a spiritual lifeline for its loyal customers who cannot afford these charges. We are asking for your help to take action to prevent T-Mobile and any other greedy cellphone carriers who follow suit from gouging and targeting prayer customers with unnecessary and unfair costs. We strongly urge everyone interested in maintaining religious liberty to support the right of all people to pray together, free of costs and other barriers. Please call upon T-Mobile and any other corporations considering similar action to stop charging customers unfair, punitive and discriminatory fees that were designed to prevent faithful people of all religions from praying for free. Help the millions of individuals who utilize these services for prayer by signing this petition.

Stop Censoring CBD #freecbd

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-intoxicating compound found in hemp that has been shown to be a natural remedy beneficial for everything from promoting better sleep and reducing stress to helping keep skin healthy and well balanced. Though congress legalized hemp and hemp-derived products in 2018, the FDA has yet to develop any clear guidelines or policies regarding hemp-derived CBD, despite its relatively widespread availability. This, combined with the fact that CBD can also be found in marijuana, has created immense amounts of confusion and misinformation. That confusion and misinformation have led to restrictive and widely disparate policies crafted and implemented by independent private sector organizations like Facebook, Amazon, Google, Shopify, Twilio, and many more on how brands can market, communicate, and sell their hemp-derived CBD products.  By censoring CBD, private sector organizations are contributing to the misinformation surrounding CBD and limiting the education and exposure of consumers to this natural plant-derived ingredient that has been shown to have positive benefits for health and wellness. Because the FDA has failed to provide clarity around the regulation of hemp-derived CBD products, there are many ill-informed, unjust challenges and hurdles to communicating with consumers about CBD and sharing CBD’s benefits as a healthy and safe ingredient. As a coalition of brands, healers, advocates, and champions of hemp-derived CBD, we’ve started this Stop Censoring CBD #freeCBD initiative to help spread awareness about the overarching issue of CBD being misclassified and poorly regulated. We’ve created this petition with the following goals: To encourage lawmakers to establish legal and regulatory pathways for the nationwide sale of hemp-derived extract products like CBD supplements, creams, and balms. To pressure the FDA to move forward with regulatory actions that would separate hemp-derived CBD from marijuana and create a regulatory framework for companies to ensure compliance and protect consumers with clear guidelines and standards for safety, labeling, potency, growing practices, manufacturing, and communications for all products. To inspire CBD companies to work together in the interim to create a clearly defined set of universal criteria for all CBD products to make it easier for consumers to shop CBD products and ensure they are getting safe, high-quality CBD products that are grown, formulated, manufactured, and marketed responsibly and ethically. By signing this petition, you will help us to advocate to lawmakers, the FDA, and the FCC that CBD does not belong on a list of illicit substances and pressure them to act to create federal regulations around CBD that will help better educate, inform, and protect consumers, while creating clear guidelines for the brands to follow in order to ensure their products comply, providing credibility for legitimate CBD brands and eradicating the bad actors with sub-par or fake CBD products. Federal standards and regulations mean safer and more efficacious CBD for all. The CBD Brand Coalition is a group of CBD advocates, champions, and brands including Prima, Recess, Plant People, Papa and Barkley, Svn Space, Sweet Reason, Miss Grass, Foria Wellness, Fleur Marche, Juna, Looni, Muri Lelu, Cann, Apothecanna, Hivi, Onda Wellness, Vertly , FruitsLabs, Empyri, Quim, Omura, ENUF Period,  oHHo, Plant Society,  Calm Better Days, Flor De Maria, Botanica Boutique, Liweli, Toastyy, Raw Botanics Co., Receptra and more on a mission to unlock the industry together and #FREECBD.

Stop 5G in our neighborhoods!

”Small Cell" 5G antennas are being installed on Light poles in our neighborhood. We DO NOT WANT this 5G technology outside our home.  I write today to share that the choices you make about the environment we call home are far reaching, and that our precious homes must be protected. There’s not a lot of time, so we have to act quickly! Here are the points of concerns:  These small cells will be emitting microwave and millimeter waves radiation of ultra high frequency and ultra high intensity (30GHz - 300 GHz).  These 4G and 5G so-called small cells (each with up to a 28 cubic feet of ancillary equipment) will be emitting RF-EMR exposures 24/7 in frequencies ranging from 600 MHz to 90,000 MHz. There are estimates that they will be installed every 2 -10 houses by 2020. We need to restrict these extreme density 4G and 5G small cells to only commercial and industrial areas. The waves penetrate 1 to millimeters of human skin tissue and are also absorbed by the surface layers of the eye's cornea. Over exposure can cause serious harm:  infertility, childhood leukemia, arrhythmias, insomnia, cancer, DNA damage, memory/behavior problems, and more.  We haven’t gotten a straight answer from our elected officials who allowed the FCC to include language in the 1996 Telecommunications Report that cities could not use environmental effects as reasons to to deny placement of cell towers. In September, 2018, the FCC created the “Accelerating Wireline Broadband Deployment by Removing Barriers to Infrastructure Investment Declaratory Ruling and Third Report and Order” which streamlined rules which benefit industry while removing local control. The Order is a blatant effort by the FCC to strengthen the hand of carriers in negotiations with local governments over small cell deployment and to limit the ability of local governments to negotiate in the public interest around small cells. There is no scientific evidence to support any claim of 5G safety. You are able to see the studies here: https://ehtrust.org/science/cell-towers-and-cell-antennae/compilation-of-research-studies-on-cell-tower-radiation-and-health/ http://www.emrpolicy.org/science/research/fact_sheet.htm Doctors and Scientist warn of potential serious health effects of 5G : https://www.jrseco.com/wp-content/uploads/2017-09-13-Scientist-Appeal-5G-Moratorium.pdf (Hundreds of scientists and public health experts from around the world are demanding a moratorium on the deployment of 5G) There are parks and schools within a radius of the small cell that poses a major health risk to children because they are most vulnerable. Radiation exposure from small cell impacts environmental and wildlife. It will harm birds, bees, trees and nature. Trees will be needed to cut down. https://principia-scientific.org/5g-to-kill-the-birds-bees-and-your-loved-ones/ Fire Hazards. Fire concerns since trees and homes are in close proximity. We already have adequate cell reception and another antenna is not needed. Installing small cell towers will take away the homeowners right to choose how much microwave radiation exposure they want to risk. Better delivery systems are fiber optics and cable. They are faster, reliable and safe. And it gives us homeowners the ability to choose the level of exposure. Decreased property values. Studies who property values drop up to 20% on homes near cell towers. (ref:https://ehtrust.org/cell-phone-towers-lower-property-values-documentation-research/) We are being taxed  $3,500 - $5000 for each Small cell in our city per year! Lawsuits should arise if telecommunication companies (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint) and the city council does not warn their consumers and constituents of the health and privacy risks.  They should also face legal action if they attempt to disguise 5G cell towers.  Im reaching out to you because I am a son, brother, uncle, future father, and a healthy human being.  My family and I work hard to stay healthy. I care about the well being and safety of my neighbors and their children, as well as future generations. Lets STOP this from being installed in our neighborhood! We do not consent to 5G and being exposed to electromagnetic wireless microwave radiation.

Give a free month of phone/internet for your unemployed customers

Every year in America, almost 20 million people lose their jobs. COVID shed new light how difficult it is to be unemployed, but it's nothing new. Many of us end up being unemployed for months. After severance pay runs out and savings dwindle, unemployment insurance is hardly enough to pay rent - let alone other basic needs. Internet and phone service are incredibly important to us as we look for new jobs, help our children study, and access key medical resources. Without it, we'll never find our way out of unemployment. But it's also expensive at a time when every dollar counts. The combined cost can be over $100 per month. For many of us, that's around 10% of our income on unemployment, before taxes. It's hard to make ends meet. Many of us have been loyal, supportive customers of the same internet/phone provider for decades. We pay our bills on time, sign our children up for the same providers, and run our lives off of your valuable service. When we lose our jobs, however long unemployment lasts feels like the most painful, scary period of our lives. While some of us certainly have the savings to make it through, others are fending for themselves and feeling bleak. For us, while your service is beyond necessary, it's a lot of money. For you, supporting us for that short period of time is a blip compared to the time we spend being your customers. You'll help us when we need you most. We'll use your services to take classes, build our networks, earn some side income, and apply to jobs. This petition is to support your customers in their time of need, and when your service is more necessary than ever.

Saturday a report was filed but we ,the family , were told they do not search for a missing person until 72 hours later because “they have the right to not come home “ . We expressed we knew she was in danger but procedure is procedure .  On 11/15/2018 we got the call that she was found shot dead and the father of her child had killed himself .    We could not track her location bc a subpoena had to be filed for T-Mobile . And that took way too much time .However the car they were in had a tracking device .  Most dealerships and SID/GPS companies only require a police report to send a signal .... She did not die the same day she went missing she was alive for a few days   she could’ve been saved had we just tracked her location       So today we ask , please sign this petition so when someone goes missing and the family is 100% sure this not normal behavior and they have children we do not wait 72 hours to look for them .  We are trying to get the time down to as small as 12-24 hours . It only takes 1 second to lose a life .....  please we may not bring Ahyanna back , but we can save someone ....    Please help us change the law and bring mothers like her home sooner ...  100,000 signatures needed within 30 days to reach the White House   Thank you

Protect the Prepaid Industry- stop T-Mobile from making negative changes to Metro Dealers

T-Mobile is making major changes to their Metro by T-Mobile prepaid dealer program which is going to affect 8000+ stores and 20000+ employees. Dealers will face a negative impact to cash flow and revenue in month one. The changes listed below have one upside with many downsides to the dealers upfront income/cash flow.  Currently we get paid X amount for activating a customer a new line service, effective 10-1 that amount will be decreased and we can possibly earn more if the customer stays active for 6 months, YES, 6 whole months! Keep in mind this is a Prepaid customer.  Currently Dealers make a portion of the Payment fee on taking in-store cash payments. This helps off set bank deposit fees, credit card fees, employees time taking the payments. T-Mobile is Removing that Effective 10-1. Most carriers pay a monthly residual ex: Cricket Currently we may purchase and sell Cellphone accessories from any vendor to stay competitive with other outlets such as Boost Mobile, Cricket, Walmart, Target, Five Below, etc. effective 10-1 we must purchase from a single source vendor which is known for shortage of products and not proper product mix that our customers want. This is illegal as they are treating us as a franchise. Our cost will go up, which means our retail price will go up. This will make us less profitable and less competitive as we will have to sell at our old pricing.  Customers can currently receive discounted upgrade pricing every 90 days. Effective 10-1 this will change to every 180 days. This will make it tougher on dealers to retain a customer for 6 months in order to earn that full potential commission. It’s a double negative situation. It works against the dealers and employees This is what we are asking for in order to keep our business Viable, Profitable, Competitive and have enough income to pay our employees and offer raises Same amount in commission proposed spread over 3-4 months instead of 6 months Residuals on payment income with a minimum threshold (use 12 months of current fee come as a base starting point) Optional accessory vendors not limited to single source vendor Customer upgrade policy back to 90 days Stop T-Mobile from poaching Metro Customers Change dealer guidelines to work against stores from staying competitive in the prepaid space Stop T-Mobile reps from constantly harassing us to Slam customers with features and MRC  Compensate dealers that were forced to close their Doors via a mass Nationwide termination. Dealers were given no reason or explanation. This hurt many businesses, families and employees    The needs we have asked for above is vital to keeping our business a prepaid model and keeping dealers healthy financially. T-Mobile will negatively impact and hurt dealers long term with these changes. There is much more however we can only list so much here.  We are not a franchise, which they are treating us like one. That is illegal.  T-Mobile is also mass texting Metro customers to move them over to the T-Mobile side. Offering special financing and pricing. Conflict of interest, illegal! Please sign and help us continue to make Metro great again!
