Petition to Central PWD in association with corresponding State Govt.
Demand for improved quality of roads
The country is losing too many lives because of bad traffic. Cities like Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkota, Chennai, etc. has bad traffic not only because of high density of vehicles. 65% of the traffic accidents and congestion can be reduced if we have good roads. Naturally, the people driving vehicle when they see a pot-hole, they tend to deviate from the current lane causing others to hit breaks. If luckily, the person on the other lane is skilled enough to control the vehicle, nothing major happens. This causes disruption in traffic flow. This not only causes accidents, but majority of the country's fuel is wasted because of this as the vehicles are on idling due to non-moving traffic. The authorities should make sure that a proper motor-able road is provided before closing any road for construction so that there's no disruption in usual traffic. Please join hands with me to demand for good quality roads.

Give Delhi's children improved education - Reinstate Atishi Marlena
To, The Home Minister Government of India Atishi Marlena, Advisor to Delhi’s Education Minister Manish Sisodia has been instrumental in transforming Delhi's government schools over the last 3 years. A Stephenian with a Masters in Education from Oxford, a Chevening Scholar as well as a Rhodes Scholar, Atishi has been serving the city's schools for a salary of Re 1 per month. Your Ministry in the Central government led by the BJP has ordered that Atishi be sacked from her position claiming her position was never approved by the Centre. The phenomenal improvements in the quality of education offered to children in Delhi's government schools are a product of Atishi's quiet labour behind the scenes. Her contribution has been acknowledged by academics, organisations working in education, politicians across party lines and even the sharpest critics of the Aam Aadmi Party. The Centre has routinely caused hindrances to derail the work of the Delhi government. However this sacking has put a face on the Centre's persecution of the Delhi government. The order dismissing Atishi’s appointment is more than a personal or political attack. It is an attack on the citizens of Delhi who have long suffered corrupt and incompetent governance. It is an attack on Delhi’s children who finally have a chance to get the opportunity they deserve. As citizens of this country who believe that politics needs people like Atishi Marlena in positions of power to influence governance for the better, we urge you to reconsider your decision to dismiss Atishi and reinstate her with immediate effect.

Petition to MP Jenny Mikakos, The Hon Greg Hunt MP, Scott Morrison
A formal apology for Dr Chris Higgins, improved transparency and support regarding covid19
To all our Ministers,Today, it is with great dismay that I read the news about your colleague, Victorian Health Minister Jenny Mikakos, stating that she is “absolutely flabbergasted that the doctor who has experienced flu-like symptoms has presented to work”. This flippant remark, as well as another comment she made about involving AHPRA shows a complete disrespect and lack of understanding of the pressures that our primary health care providers and hospital staff face every day. You should note that shaming the afflicted General Practitioner publicly has resulted in an unjustified social media witch hunt. As reported, the GP had returned from the USA, which at the time was not considered an at-risk country; his symptom of a “runny nose” is a non-specific symptom which in itself is not on the government’s symptom list for SARS-Cov2 virus. If he had contacted his local public health unit for advice, he would have been told to self-monitor and to present for testing only if he went on to develop further symptoms.Ms Jenny Mikakos stating that GPs in this country are "fully supported and resourced" during this crisis is nothing short of a lie. There is much confusion for health care professionals and the public due to inconsistent advice from local public health units which, are very likely receiving conflicting advice themselves. There has been overwhelming lack of government support in providing Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) to GPs who work at the coalface of health care, and yet, the public is being unanimously advised to contact their GPs if they felt unwell. Is this not an unwise directive given how contagious this disease is? There has been minimal discussion about the appropriate supportive arrangements required for GPs to support their communities adequately during this viral outbreak. And what should happen if the GPs themselves fell ill? Who will replace them as primary health care providers in the communities?As for staying at home when feeling unwell, if you were to speak with any doctor in either primary health care or in a hospital service, you would hear first-hand how difficult it is to obtain relief cover when a staff member must take sick leave. Too often many of us work with no relief cover, and through our good will, shoulder the extra work burden when a colleague is unwell enough to be away, or indeed when any form of leave has to be taken. You must be aware that our GPs run as small private businesses and cannot afford to take sick leave lightly. There is also the guilt from not wanting to let our patients down by cancelling appointments, especially when appointments with trusted GPs can be very difficult to come by. Ms Mikakos’s public remarks implying that a health care professional would wilfully infect our patients by working when unwell, reflect her lack of understanding of an overburdened health system, which is already contributing to a high rate of burn out and an escalating suicide rate in the medical profession.Given that all of us health care professionals work in clinical settings where we are more commonly exposed to pathogens than the average person in the community, it should come as no surprise that we would be at greater risk than others of getting sick. However, the health care system is so under-resourced that there is minimal slack in the system for health care workers to take sick leave when they actually need it. Many of us working in health care are people of great compassion and conscientiousness, and as we have little power to change the system in which we work, we simply soldier on when faced with minor illnesses that do not completely incapacitate us; we do this for our sick patients, and also for our already over-burdened colleagues.I hope Ms Mikakos realizes what an unfair statement she has made, and how cruel she has been to a person who set out to work as a doctor in service to his community as best as he could. She has so clearly demonstrated her ignorance of the health system which she is Minister of. In fact, she should issue a formal apology for her ill-planned remarks. Ministers, I write to all of you hoping that you will not repeat the same error as she has. Many clinical health care staff go far and beyond their official job duties to provide care to our community as best as we can, within whatever finite resources we have. We do not need to be made scapegoats at this time when it is important for all of us as a community to work together to ensure everyone stays safe and well. Sincerely yours,
Petition to Haddon Township Board of Education, Haddon Township School Administration, Haddon Township Superintendent of Schools
Improved Anti-Racism Education in HTSD
We, the Haddon Township High School (HTHS) Student Council and community at large, find that the anti-racism education in Haddon Township High School and throughout the Haddon Township School District (HTSD) is inadequate and must be reformed. Haddon Township is a place “where community thrives.” Its residents are friendly and welcoming and help make it a safe, nurturing place to live. Its education system is an important part of the community: nearly everyone has some connection to the school district and many remain part of it even after they or their children graduate. It is rightly acclaimed as a fantastic educational institution and helps its students prepare well for their future. In spite of this, Haddon Township has a major flaw: it and towns like it are a direct result of systemic racism. Racist policies throughout American history have kept suburbs across the country from including nonwhites in various manners. As a result, our town is racially homogenous: 91.1% white, 1.1% black or African American, 1.9% Asian,1.0% biracial, and 5.0% Hispanic or Latino. This is evident in all facets of life in Haddon Township and especially in its schools. Students at Haddon Township recognize this, but are often unaware of the extent of the privilege into which many were born. We are calling for more diversity and anti-racism education in our schools to resolve this problem: First, the history and culture of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) must be addressed. White washing is a major issue in our nation and, despite our best efforts, our school, too. Historical and modern-day contributions of BIPOC and the hatred they have faced throughout American history are not adequately discussed. The efforts of BIPOC to aid the advancement of humankind are woefully under-represented and white crimes against them must be taught to better understand the state of the world today, including recent actions that have led to major world events and crises. This must be done despite the discomfort these discussions will undoubtedly cause. As part of this, textbooks and classroom materials must be evaluated. Many history textbooks fail to discuss the above mentioned subjects, including racism and segregation in today’s world and the recent past; they may glorify American “heroes” without considering these people’s actions that actively harmed BIPOC, such as Christopher Columbus and his genocide against Native Americans. Additionally, materials in other courses must be evaluated for their representation of BIPOC and their culture. More diverse literature must especially be included in English curriculums. On the whole, BIPOC representation must be increased in every curriculum. Diversity training must be instituted to teach our students to rectify the problems homogeneity poses. We must hold workshops, assemblies, and other programs to teach students to be more than non-racist, but to actively oppose racism and other forms of hatred, bigotry, and discrimination in our society. Classes and outside events must be held to teach this, and they must be taught by BIPOC. Their perspective in this education will be vital to the understanding of our students, as they will be able to share their experiences of what is likely an unfamiliar subject to many students. A committee must be established to ensure representation in the student body for BIPOC. More must be done to ensure that nonwhite students’ perspectives are considered in decisions and the creation of this committee would allow for that. This committee must include BIPOC students and would be able to address school policy decisions and activities that would help improve anti-racism education and programs in HTSD. HTSD must make a commitment to increasing its staffing diversity. Our faculty is large-majority-white, and the HTSD must make a concentrated effort to improve this. Representation is important for the success of all students. In this representation, we mean more than improving racial demographics: people of different sexual orientations, genders, and abilities must be part of our discussion. While we understand the difficulty in changing the demographics of the staff, we implore the district to ensure that diversity is considered in future staffing decisions, especially among leadership groups, to ensure every perspective is represented in district decisions. This is not an exhaustive list; it is a start. Nor is this list for HTHS alone. These are changes which must be implemented across all grades and schools. No student is too young nor too old to be taught about racism, hatred, and bigotry. In regard to racism and injustices, everyone must spend their whole life learning. Everyone must be lifelong students. It is our actions here and now that will allow us to work towards fixing systemic injustices. Education is our best tool to fight ignorance and we must use that tool. It’s time to teach our students about the discrimination from which many benefit and will never experience. It is our duty to do this now, to relieve the suffering of many in our community and nation. WE ARE HAWK NATION.

SUPPORT IMPROVED E-BIKE ACCESS IN HAWAII
Aloha Hawai’i Ohana As you may be aware, there is a growing interest in Electric bikes (“e-bikes”) in Hawai’i. E-bikes are NOT currently allowed on state-managed trails but you have the rare opportunity to help change that on 9/16/20 2pm.ZOOM information: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0qdu2srTMrGNwz5-cjP35WZhyTFZLUHSbl E-bikes are proving to be a bike for ALL people. Their use not only opens up opportunities for individuals to start exercising and building healthier lifestyles but they also encourage the sport of biking to people with disabilities, ailments or those who have lost the ability to ride a regular bike altogether (i.e. amputees, paraplegics, etc.). E-bikes provide individuals the opportunity to connect with nature, exercise with family members, and strive for a healthier lifestyle. Hawai’i now becomes a far more accessible place for our residents as people set out to explore the beautiful lands on e-bikes. The result is a win-win for Hawai’i! The last thing any of us in the biking community want to see is people being discriminated against for riding an e-bike. Imagine the pride and joy someone who has lost their ability to ride a bike gets when they realize they are no longer too old, too injured or too disabled to ride a bike again. This is a life-changing realization for many of our residents and we, as a community, should welcome and encourage this change by improving e-bike access on our local trails.Hawaii’s Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) does NOT currently allow e-bikes on state-managed trails, which includes natural surface mountain bike trails.Hawaii State DLNR and Na Ala Hele (who manages the state’s Trail and Access Program) is going to discuss allowing e-bikes on state-managed trails at an upcoming MEETING on 9/16/20 2pm.

Even if you are attending please send this as each individual email has a impact on there decision. https://peopleforbikes.org/hawaiiebikeaccess/ Please HELP improve E-Bike access in Hawaii by signing this petition, share, and spread the word that we are asking the Na Ala Hele Advisory Board/Council members to ALLOW Class 1 E-Bikes wherever traditional bicycles are allowed on trails. Here are some facts and data to support why they should allow e-bikes.https://peopleforbikes.org/our-work/e-bikes/ In several independent studies, Class 1 e-bikes make .01% more impact on trails than regular bikes. That is not registrable.https://b.3cdn.net/bikes/c3fe8a28f1a0f32317_g3m6bdt7g.pdf Class 1 e-bikes are under 750w of power and are only engaged by human power.All major manufactures make 250w bottom bracket pedal-assist motors which are only twice the power of a normal person and the equivalent to a top-level athlete 1/3 hp.https://www.shimano-steps.com/e-bikes/europe/en/news/e-mtb-terminology-explained70% of individuals buying e-bikes are 55-70 years old and do about the same distance as a normal rider. This means that trail usage is close to the same as that of traditional bicycle riders.https://www.evelo.com/blog/a-survey-of-u-s-electric-bike-owners-and-interested-consumers/ 25% of individuals buying e-bikes have medical conditions or have adaptive needs.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pn9IDwGpUog&feature=youtu.be Please remember at 2pm Wednesday 9/16/20 2pm on Zoom the the Hawai DLNR will be deciding.ZOOM information:https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0qdu2srTMrGNwz5-cjP35WZhyTFZLUHSbl Please SIGN this petition and let your voice be heard if not for you, than for others who can’t.

Improved regulations for the Public Transportation System in Guyana
Every day hundreds of consumers that utilise the public transporation system in Guyana are faced with discomfort and risk of losing their lives especially while travelling in minibuses. Guyana is ranked among the top countries in the world that have not undertaken sufficient efforts to reduce accidents, in keeping with the UN strategy. Collecting reliable data is essential to improving road safety and reducing risks for pedestrians, also. Education plays a great part. The public transporation system of any country plays an essential part in that country's development. We are calling on the relevant authorities to implement better regulations that would improve this system in the form of: 1. Education and training for bus drivers/conductors on areas like customer service and how to deal with emergency situations. 2. Conducting background checks on bus drivers/conductors as a requirement to obtain a driver's licence. 3. More cameras on the roadways to monitor the buses. 4. Frequent physical surveillance of the buses on the roadway by the relevant ministry officials. 5. Online Reporting platform for consumers to report delinquent drivers and conductors. It is important that these regulations be implemented! Guyana's Public Transportation System must improve! No more lives should be lost because of careless and reckless drivers!

Improved sporting facilities for Droitwich Spa
By signing this petition, we can demonstrate to the Town Council and Wychavon District Council the support we have to improve the sporting facilities for our community. The King George V Community Interest Company, a joint venture between Droitwich Spa Sports clubs, has been collaborating for 3 years to significantly improve the sporting facilities for the town. Located at King George V Playing Fields, Briar Mill (behind the Sports Centre) we believe, as do Wychavon District Council, Worcs FA, and the Playing Pitch strategy developed by WDC, that this is the best site to achieve the aim of supporting all clubs and sport generally in Droitwich Spa, albeit on a landfill site which increases the cost. We have achieved a lot so far but the overall goal was to work with Wychavon District Council to improve the playing pitches and the development of a 3G Community sports pitch, and modernised facilities. We thanks you for your past support, BUT WE NEED YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT. The national standards for outdoor sports pitches are recognised by 75% of local authorities in the country. With the INCREASING POPULATION of Droitwich Spa and the INCREASED REVENUE THAT BRINGS we will soon have only about 40% of the playing pitches that we should have, which its totally inadequate. Despite many meetings with Wychavon District Council who allegedly support the project we believe that progress is too slow and they are prevaricating over the cost. We therefore need to petition the council demonstrating the community needs and support for our campaign

Stop Masshealth budget cuts for improved patient care!
The recent Masshealth cuts($6M) are destroying the health of Massachusetts residents by decreasing the ability for providers to afford to give the patient services he/she needs including nursing, Home Health Aid , Physical and Occupational Therapy services. The reimbursement rates are so low that Home Health Agencies are not able to send in the appropriate services in to care for people at the needed frequency because they would be operating at a loss. The rates that are allowed by Masshealth do not allow clinicians to be paid at the market rate. Clinicians are being asked to cut corners in patient care in order to make ends meet. Actual scenario: An RN was treating a patient who is blind and diabetic. This patient had no support system at all. The Home Health Agency in order to cut costs asked the RN to stop seeing the patient and teach a neighbor (who the patien didn't know) to give her insulin shots. The likelihood of this neighbor actually being reliable to complete this task is low making the re-hospitalization rate high. If nursing can't come in on a regular basis, this patient will end up in a Nursing Home in order to get 2 insulin shots per day. She received a few hours of HHA services for basic care. Otherwise, the patient was able to manage on her own at home. Paying for nursing home care instead of home health care increases Masshealth costs exponentially. Not to mention, the quality of life of the patient. Another patient, just came home from a joint replacement. Due to his insurance being Masshealth, this patient did not get referred for Physical Therapy. The patient didn't get what he needed and ended up in increased pain and decreased function. Again, increasing Masshealth costs with more doctors visits, hospitalizations and possible need for Nursing Home Care. These are just 2 examples out of thousands of what we are seeing as clinicians in the Home Health Care industry. It is affecting the quality of care that is being provided, creating ethical dilemmas for clinicians and difficulty filling home care positions due to the low rate of reimbursement. Please join us in our fight to increase Masshealth rates to allow clinicians to provide the care that our patients so desperately need! Contact your local representative, senator and Governor Baker regarding how it affecting you and your patients or people you know!!
