100+ Historically Black Colleges & Universities, 0 have gymnastics. It's time for change.

As a high school student-athlete looking at prospective colleges, there are many decisions to be made: finding the best fit for your academic studies and finding the best fit for your athletic career. For a Black gymnast, there is even more to consider. Do you attend an HBCU or go to a school that offers your sport. Why should you have to make that choice? Can’t you have both? Unfortunately, there are no HBCUs that have a gymnastics program. Gymnasts at high levels often train between 20-30 hours per week. They start gymnastics at a young age and dedicate their time, and train to perfect a craft they hope will help secure a spot on an NCAA gymnastics team. HBCUs are automatically scratched off that list.  Athletes like Simone Biles and Gabby Douglas have done an outstanding job of representing Brown Girls in gymnastics. Their success opened doors for young Black girls to participate in a sport that had low representation of women who look like us at elite levels. Today we see how much of a significant impact young Black athletes are making in the sport. Each week in the world of collegiate gymnastics, Black athletes achieve top scores and show their dominance. They should be able to perform at that level at their family's alma mater. Join Brown Girls Do Gymnastics in promoting this proposal by: signing this petition bringing awareness to establishing gymnastics in HBCUs. following our social media platforms for updates: https://www.instagram.com/browngirlsdogymnastics/ writing your local HBCU’s athletic department; let them know the time is now to bring gymnastics to Historically Black Colleges & Universities

Aff-äre! Volkswagen soll sich GEGEN Tierversuche engagieren!

Hallo! Wir sind die neue V-Partei³ , Partei für Veränderung, Vegetarier und Veganer. Das V³ symbolisiert die inhaltliche Vielfältigkeit der Partei, die sich nicht auf ein einziges Thema beschränken lässt. „Wir lieben das Leben“ ist das Motto, die Inhalte richten sich ganzheitlich an diesem Leitsatz aus. Wir nehmen als Partei den staatlichen Auftrag zur Meinungsbildung ernst und beleuchten Ursachen und Wirkungen vieler menschengemachter Probleme. Mit dem altruistischen Programm setzen wir uns mit bereits fast 2.000 Mitglieder für nachhaltiges Wirtschaften und für eine faire, wertschätzende Behandlung aller Lebewesen ein. +++Ende Januar 2018 wurde bekannt, dass zehn Javaner-Affen vier Stunden lang die Abgase eines VW-Beetles und eines Ford-Pickups einatmen mussten. Danach wurde den Affen ein Endoskop durch die Nase bis in die Lunge eingeführt, um sie zu untersuchen. Der Test ergab, dass die Abgase des VW-Beetles schädlicher für die Tiere war als jene von der Ford-Marke. VW wollte dieses Experiment an den Affen von der Öffentlichkeit fernhalten. +++ Wir halten Tierversuche nicht nur im Rahmen von Autoabgasen für inakzeptabel, sondern generell. Die V-Partei³ setzt sich wie mittlerweile viele ÄrztInnen und Tierrechtsorganisationen für das Ende der Tierversuche ein. Seitens VW erging zwar bereits eine Entschuldigung anlässlich der Versuche an den Affen. Wir finden jedoch, dass eine Entschuldigung nicht ausreicht. Wenn den Verantwortlichen von VW dieser Vorfall wirklich leid tut und sie ihre Entschuldigung ernst meinen, setzen sie ein deutliches Zeichen und unterstützen finanziell diejenigen, die sich für eine tierversuchsfreie Forschung stark machen. Auf unserer Facebook-Seite wurden folgende Organisationen am häufigsten genannt, denen VW eine zweckgebundene Geldspende (Verwendung für den Einsatz gegen Tierversuche) zukommen lassen soll: a) Ärzte gegen Tierversuche, b) Albert Schweizer Stiftung, c) Animal Right Watch (ARIWA) Bitte unterstützt diesen Aufruf, unterschreibt die Petition und teilt sie. Für eine bessere Welt ohne Tierversuche! Zeit für Veränderungen!

Volkswagen should respect its customers with the faulty DSG gearboxes in Egypt

I am one of the thousands of victims in Egypt who decided at a point in time to put their trust in Volkswagen and purchase its cars in Egypt despite the numerous reported failure cases of DSG gearbox due to different causes. This was based on the dealer's claims that 2012 model is defect free and that VW grants its performance. I own a Jetta 2012 model (Vin: WVWZZZ16ZCM107219) which at the beginning proved to be an excellent car, until the first failure happened at 75,000KM where I had to change the Clutch system. Not long after, the gearbox controller (Mechatronic device) had failed at 100,000KM and it got replaced. Now, after another 100,000KM (i.e. at 200,000KM mileage) the controller fails again and VW Egypt denies to replace it and I am requested to pay 40,000EGP to get it fixed! I am requested to pay 40,000EGP for a design mistake of a faulty gearbox and controller that fails every 100,000KM obviously. I know people who owns cars of different marks for more than 10 years and they never changed a bolt in a gearbox. A big failure from VW to respect its customers and be accountable for issues in their cars. If you believe in my case, if you have been in the same situation or know someone who have been in the same situation, please sign the petition so that we get heard and be treated as respectful customers to a supposedly reputable company as Volkswagen.

Investigate the Exploitation of Uyghurs in Chinese Factories

Uyghurs are a minority of Muslims living in the northwest area of China.  The Chinese government forced a number from thousands to millions of Uyghurs to move into Xinjiang "re-education camps." In these concentration camps, the goal was to sinicize [assimilate] Uyghurs, or "make Chinese." Their culture was ripped away from them. They were forced to eat pork, drink alcohol, and some women were even married off to Han men. "But there is new evidence to show that the Chinese authorities are moving Uighurs into government-directed labor around the country as part of the central government's "Xinjiang Aid" initiative. For the party, this would help meet its poverty-alleviation goals but also allow it to further control the Uighur population and break familial bonds." Now there are claims that Uyghurs have been moved to sweatshops in Xinjiang. Under an investigation by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, Uyghurs were found "mak[ing] goods for more than 80 established global brands." This means that they were working in factories that these companies supply from. These brands include "Abercrombie & Fitch, Acer, Adidas, Alstom, Amazon, Apple, ASUS, BAIC Motor, BMW, Bombardier, Bosch, BYD, Calvin Klein, Candy, Carter’s, Cerruti 1881, Changan Automobile, Cisco, CRRC, Dell, Electrolux, Fila, Founder Group, GAC Group (automobiles), Gap, Geely Auto, General Electric, General Motors, Google, H&M, Haier, Hart Schaffner Marx, Hisense, Hitachi, HP, HTC, Huawei, iFlyTek, Jack & Jones, Jaguar, Japan Display Inc., L.L.Bean, Lacoste, Land Rover, Lenovo, LG, Li-Ning, Mayor, Meizu, Mercedes-Benz, MG, Microsoft, Mitsubishi, Mitsumi, Nike, Nintendo, Nokia, The North Face, Oculus, Oppo, Panasonic, Polo Ralph Lauren, Puma, Roewe, SAIC Motor, Samsung, SGMW, Sharp, Siemens, Skechers, Sony, TDK, Tommy Hilfiger, Toshiba, Tsinghua Tongfang, Uniqlo, Victoria’s Secret, Vivo, Volkswagen, Xiaomi, Zara, Zegna, ZTE." These companies NEED to: 1. Conduct an investigation into the factories in question. 2. Make a public statement regarding the issue, letting consumers know what the investigation found. 3. End all manufacturing related to the Xinjiang area.

STOP THE OPERATING BRANDS THAT PROFIT FROM UYGHUR FORCED LABOUR.

French version below.  3 million Uyghurs have been locked up in concentration camps for at least 3 years. Crime ? Being Muslim. Their punishments ? Torture, rape, sterilization, organ harvesting, forced labor for big brands that we consume every day. Our responsibility? Our silence, our passivity and above all our financial implication! The Australian Institute for Political Strategy (ASPI) shared a 56-page report revealing that: "Factories resort to forced labor by Uyghurs as part of a transfer mechanism framed by the (Chinese) state, which taints production chains on a global scale. " The brands in question are : 1.NIKE  2.ABERCROMBIE & FITCH.  3.ZARA.  4.H&M.   5.CALVIN KLEIN 6.VICTORIA’S SECRET.   7.FILA.   8.JACK & JONES.    9.THE NORTH FACE 10.PUMA   11.POLO RALPH LAUREN.    12.UNIQLO.    13.TOMMY HILFIGER 14.JAPAN DISPLAY INC.   15.GAP.    16.APPLE.   17.TOSHIBA.    18.ACER 19.HUAWEI.   20.HP.    21.SAMSUNG.    22.DELL.    23.NOKIA 24.NINTENDO.    25.LG electronics.      26.GOOGLE.     27.MICROSOFT 28.ALSTOM.  29.AMAZON.     30.ASUS.     31.BAIC MOTOR.     32.BMV 33.JAGUAR.     34.SAIC MOTOR , ROEWE     35.SGMW.      36.LAND ROVER 37.MERCEDES-BENZ.    38.GENERAL MOTORS.   39.GENERAL ELECTRIC 40.GEELY AUTO.   41.MISTUBISHI.   42.VOLKSWAGEN 43.

BUSINESSES ARE NOTHING WITHOUT CONSUMERS.                                        THE POWER IS IN YOUR HANDS. The uyghurs need you. Share this petition with 10 of your friends. TOGETHER, let's make a difference ! _______________________________________________________ NON À LA CONSOMMATION DES MARQUES EXPLOITANT LES OUÏGHOURS. 3 millions d’ouïghours se trouvent enfermés dans des camps de concentration depuis au moins 3 ans. Leur crime ? Être musulman. Leurs châtiments ? Tortures, viols, stérilisations, prélèvements d’organes, travail forcé pour de grandes marques que nous consommons au quotidien. Notre responsabilité ? Notre silence, notre passivité et surtout notre implication financière ! L’Institut australien de stratégie politique (ASPI) a partagé un rapport de 56 pages révélant que : « Des usines recourent au travail forcé des Ouïghours dans le cadre d’un mécanisme de transfert encadré par l’État (chinois), ce qui entache des chaines de production à l’échelle mondiale. » Les marques en question sont : 1.NIKE  2.ABERCROMBIE & FITCH.  3.ZARA.  4.H&M.   5.CALVIN KLEIN 6.VICTORIA’S SECRET.   7.FILA.   8.JACK & JONES.    9.THE NORTH FACE 10.PUMA   11.POLO RALPH LAUREN.    12.UNIQLO.    13.TOMMY HILFIGER 14.JAPAN DISPLAY INC.   15.GAP.    16.APPLE.   17.TOSHIBA.    18.ACER 19.HUAWEI.   20.HP.    21.SAMSUNG.    22.DELL.    23.NOKIA 24.NINTENDO.    25.LG electronics.      26.GOOGLE.     27.MICROSOFT 28.ALSTOM.  29.AMAZON.     30.ASUS.     31.BAIC MOTOR.     32.BMV 33.JAGUAR.     34.SAIC MOTOR , ROEWE     35.SGMW.      36.LAND ROVER 37.MERCEDES-BENZ.    38.GENERAL MOTORS.   39.GENERAL ELECTRIC 40.GEELY AUTO.   41.MISTUBISHI.   42.VOLKSWAGEN 43.

Nous nous engageons à boycotter chaque marque refusant de stopper de collaborer avec les fournisseurs exploitants. LES ENTREPRISES NE SONT RIEN SANS LES CONSOMMATEURS .                    LE POUVOIR EST ENTRE VOS MAINS. Les ouïghours ont besoin de vous.
