Petition to Department of Justice, NAACP
In this article I am pleading for justice for Quinton McClinton, a man who didn't stand a chance in a trial against a tainted and biased system.  Opinions formed about him the moment the incident occurred that resulted in him being arrested and convicted for attempted murder for defending himself against a killer.  The evidence or the lack there of, prove that he is innocent.  The incident falls under the category of self-defense but the system let his past define him instead of paying close attention to the case itself. Quinton McClinton is a beloved son, brother, uncle, and FATHER.  He is the father of a beautiful 18 month old little girl named McKenzie. Becoming her father is his biggest accomplishment in which his acts of changing to be a better man was amplified.  He's been in some trouble in the past and obviously those troubles followed him but he is not the same person he was before. The man he is today is a loving family man who wouldn't risk anything to be away from them, especially not his daughter. Any mistakes made while he was a boy should not cost him as a man but in this case it did. He is currently serving 25 years for standing his ground against someone who intended to hurt him or worst.   The guy Quinton was defending himself against also have a record from the past that included murdering a man with a pool stick. In that act of violence, he only served 10 years.  Even if Quinton was guilty, attempted murder with no evidence 25 years and murder 10 years?!?!  The system in this county need some help. The incident happened at a Christmas party in 2018.  Quinton attended the party only because it was a family event.  During the party, some people were trying to provoke Quinton and ruin the party but since it was his family event, many members of the family wouldn't allow it.  It was ongoing throughout the night up until the end where a fight broke out between Quinton and the assailant.  During this fight, people started shooting including the assailant himself and Quinton was hit by a car driven by the assailant's sister.  The question I have is, how someone gets hit by a car, gets up running in the mist of bullets flying towards him and his family, some how still manages to locate a gun, and start shooting as well thus making him "the shooter".  The assailant was indeed shot that night but not by the hands of the accused.  Without thorough investigation, by the word of mouth, and clearly unreliable eye witnesses(friends and family of the assailant), Quinton was indeed arrested and charged. No one else was held responsible for any other acts that transpired that night.  Quinton was awaiting trial in jail for a year only for the verdict to come back guilty with no evidence against him.  During the trial, only witnesses of the prosecution was put on the stand and none of the defense.  These are clear signs of injustice and we, the family, need your help to assure justice is served the right way.  Please help bring this innocent man home or at least get him a fair trial, preferably in another county, so the "evidence" alone can speak for itself and not biased opinions.  Hopefully with the this petition we can actually get a chance to fight for justice. I not only care because he's family and I love him but because the system is failing and continuing to fail to protect its citizens.  It is innocent until proven guilty, not the other way around.  In advance, I would like to thank everyone who took the time out to read my petition and strongly encourage you to sign it for your signature can be life changing.  Read more

Petition to korean, Feminist
“Yeo-hyeom,” or hatred or discrimination against women. “Nam-hyeom,” hatred or discrimination against men. There is an endless tug of war between women and men in South Korea--ironically, for equality. As far back as its timeline goes, South Korea today is undoubtedly founded upon rich cultural traditions and historical trails. Unfortunately, patriarchy and its notions are deeply embedded in the history, culture, religion, and society, and they continue their legacy to this day. To look the bright side, South Korea still has made an immense improvement, going as far as the government establishing The Ministry of Gender Equality and Family in January of 2001. However, the Ministry’s forced assertion of erroneous, misleading idea of so-called feminism not only promotes gender inequality and further excludes women as feeble and helpless members of the society, but it also amplifies the divide between genders even further.  Read more

Petition to Procter & Gamble, Pantene, L'Oréal
PLEASE SHARE AND SIGN THIS PETITION TO INFORM OTHERS ABOUT THIS ISSUE. This is something that is in our hands, so it's up to US to change it!  Pantene (Proctor and Gamble) and other companies such as L'oreal are working towards stopping the testing of their products on animals. However, by signing this petition, you can encourage them to take this to the next level. Animal welfare is extremely important, as many shampoo and cosmetic companies test their products on animals such as rabbits, and dogs. The dog shown in the cover image is a real-life scenario of what happens on an everyday basis. Unless the label on your shampoo or cosmetic product says "Not tested on animals," or "PETA approved," unfortunately, the shampoo you are about to use has been used tested several times on innocent creatures. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- EVIDENCE LETTER BELOW: Some of you have thought that there is not enough evidence to make these claims about animal testing. I disagree. While some of the products of P&G such as Herbal Essences, Aussie, and First Aid Beauty are labeled as cruelty-free, they are sold & developed in other countries which require animal testing. I would like you to read these articles if you still believe otherwise. One is from the FDA, an official government website, while the other is from the Ethical Elephant. Please read both. Here are the links: https://www.fda.gov/cosmetics/product-testing-cosmetics/animal-testing-cosmetics https://ethicalelephant.com/procter-and-gamble-brands-list-cruelty-free-or-not/#:~:text=Is%20Procter%20%26%20Gamble%20(P%26G),required%20for%20all%20imported%20cosmetics The article states that "We also believe that prior to use of animals, consideration should be given to the use of scientifically valid alternative methods to whole-animal testing," and, "In some cases, after considering available alternatives, companies may determine that animal testing is necessary to assure the safety of a product or ingredient." This displays that the FDA is trying its best to improve this issue by using alternatives to animal testing. However, many companies do not follow this. The FDA also stated that if it is necessary, it's permitted to use animal testing in products. The source of the image below is P&G. This is an issue that we can control. You have the power to do so, simply by clicking a button! Remember that we can make a difference and that your click goes a long way!    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- FOR EXTRA/FURTHER KNOWLEDGE: In 2019, a study showed that the failure rate for these products while being tested on animals was over 90%. This means that innocent animals had to suffer the consequences that these companies had administered due to testing and failure. For further knowledge, this link: https://www.fda.gov/cosmetics/product-testing-cosmetics/animal-testing-cosmetics from the FDA (Federal Drug Administration) will help educate you about how animal testing is used. The article quotes that, "In some cases, after considering available alternatives, companies may determine that animal testing is necessary to assure the safety of a product or ingredient," and "We also believe that prior to use of animals, consideration should be given to the use of scientifically valid alternative methods to whole-animal testing." This displays how the FDA is trying its best to use alternatives to animal testing. However, animal testing in most cases is still being used, as it states in the article. ' These companies hide these facts of animal abuse. By not testing products on animals, we can do our part to help these animals have a better life.  Thank you!Read more
