Petition to Aramark
Stop Purchasing Eggs From Battery Cage Farms.
With each cage the size of a filing cabinet drawer, packed with multiple birds, battery cage farms are hell on earth for the innocent hens that lay eggs for Aramark. This outdated agricultural practice is so cruel that it is already illegal in several states in the US and the entire European Union. Aramark is one of the largest hospitality companies in the world, providing food service for hundreds of universities, hospitals, sports arenas, prisons and more around the country. Unlike its competitors, Sodexo and Delaware North Companies, Aramark remains committed to sourcing eggs from battery cage egg farms—cruel factory farms where hens are trapped in cages barely larger than their bodies. Earlier this month, after a campaign and Change.org petition from The Humane League, Aramark's competitor, Sodexo, made a commitment to boycott cruel battery cage egg farms. Last year, The Humane League worked with foodservice competitor Delaware North Companies to make the same commitment. Unlike its competitors, Aramark continues to support the cruelest egg farms imaginable. Please, sign our petition and let Aramark know that people like you do not want to be supporting this kind of extreme animal cruelty with their dining dollars. It's time for Aramark to do the right thing and join its competitors in the 21st century by pledging to end its support of farms that still use outdated battery cage systems and putting a firm timeline in place to make this happen.

Petition to George Chavel
Stop Purchasing Eggs From Battery-Cage Farms.
Sodexo is one of the largest hospitality companies in the world and provides food service for hundreds of colleges and universities around the country. Sodexo proudly boasts their commitment to sustainability and their recent switch to cage-free shell eggs, but these eggs only account for a small number of the total eggs used in their operations. So then why is Sodexo sourcing liquid eggs from cruel and unsustainable battery-cage farms? Battery-cage farms cram egg-laying hens into tiny wire cages. With less room than a sheet of computer paper to live in for virtually their entire lives, these poor animals are unable to spread their wings or engage in any of their natural behaviors. This outdated agricultural practice is so cruel that it is already illegal in the entire European Union and several states in the US. Thankfully, we've also seen lots of movement away from battery-cages in the private sector, too. In the last few years, some of the worlds largest restaurant chains and food service providers—places like Starbucks, Burger King, Delaware North Companies, Ben & Jerry’s, and more—have made commitments to phase out this horrible practice from their supply chain. However, there is one conspicuous standout from this group, one of the largest food service providers in the world: Sodexo. The Humane League has reached out to Sodexo time and time again, but Sodexo refuses to make any meaningful commitment on this issue, and have fallen behind their competitors on this basic issue of animal cruelty. Please, sign our petition and let Sodexo know that consumers do not want to be supporting this kind of extreme animal cruelty with their dining dollars. It's time for Sodexo to do the right thing and join the 21st century in pledging to end their support of farms that still use outdated battery-cage systems.

Tell Congress and Trump to stop Sinclair Broadcast Group from purchasing Tribune Media!!!
ONE-SIDED PROPAGANDA IS COMING TO YOUR LOCAL NEWS STATION!!! THIS IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS TO OUR DEMOCRACY! You’re local news station is about to be acquired by one large media corporation who has already used their power to force your local news anchors to read corporate written scripts called “must runs”. This $4 billion dollar deal will allow Sinclair Broadcast Group, which already owns 191 stations, to purchase Tribune Media’s 42 stations. With this purchase Sinclair, with 230-plus TV stations, would have too much national power and will prevent different points of view in local markets. Sinclair's post-merger reach of 72% reach of U.S. homes is well above the cap that Congress imposed in order to protect viewpoint diversity and localism. A federal mandate prohibits the reach of a single local broadcaster of beyond 39% of U.S. TV homes. But Sinclair is receiving special treatment that will inevitably allow them to control what news and information they want you to see and hear about. Don’t believe us? Check out the video.

Petition to Jeremy Hunt
Government: STOP children purchasing PARACETAMOL
We are currently raising awareness and accruing daily public support for government legislation to restrict the sale of paracetamol to children. NHS figures show the number of children and young people self-harming has risen dramatically in the past 10 years. The number of girls under 18 who have needed hospital treatment after poisoning themselves has risen from 9,741 in 2005-06 to 13,853 – a rise of 42%. Now, more than ever, we feel that the government needs to put preventative measures into place by prohibiting the sale of such a potentially toxic drug to children. Currently there are no legal guidelines with regard to selling paracetamol to children. We understand some retail outlets have their own specific company policies but unfortunately these policies are almost impossible to enforce. More than one supermarket has informed us that their self service tills, at present, have no warning flag message to alert a member of staff to the age restriction policy and therefore any child can pass through unchallenged. Waitrose supermarket has a policy which enables children from the age of twelve to purchase paracetamol. Should a child be self medicating at twelve? Monitoring their own pain management with a drug, which if used incorrectly, could result in an accidental overdose the consequences of which could be fatal. As a society, we feel, we have a duty of care to ensure that all reasonable steps are taken to ensure the safety of a child or young person, we therefore believe that stores have a moral obligation and responsibility to children. Age restrictions apply to many products deemed unsafe to minors for example; scissors, matches, glue, razors, even chocolate liqueurs require proof of ID yet the sale of paracetamol has no government guidelines thus allowing their legal sale to children of all ages. Paracetamol is a potent drug which in small doses can cause irreversible organ damage and death. Sadly what many children or in fact adults don't realise, is that after overdosing or self poisoning with paracetamol there are rarely any side effects and would-be suicides and self-harmers may take a handful of pills expecting to drift into a pleasant sleep, only to find that nothing happens. By the next day they may well have changed their minds about killing or poisoning themselves, but it’s too late: the drug, by then, is already doing its best to destroy their liver.By the time they start feeling unwell they may be approaching the end of the (roughly) three-day window in which the antidote, acetylcysteine, can save them. Paracetamol is a hepatotoxin. As it is processed by the body, one of its metabolites starts to destroy the cells of the liver. After three days it's too late, no amount of medical intervention can help and a slow painful death ensues. With children's mental health cases rising daily, access to means is a major issue in suicide prevention and self poisoning and we believe current government legislation needs an URGENT review and with your help we believe we can make this happen.

Urge the Canadian Government to offer incentives for purchasing electric vehicles (EV)
Français | English Electric Vehicles (EV) are becoming more affordable with the introduction of the Tesla Model 3, Chevy Bolt, Ford Focus Electric and Nissan Leaf. The United States Government currently offers up to $7,500 USD income tax credit which is available to all residents. Many states also offer non-cash incentives, such as carpool lane access and free municipal parking. Japan, India, China, Australia and 22 countries in Europe provide a range of incentives including: automobile tax reductions personal income tax deduction purchase subsidies/rebates road tax exemptions free charging outlets In Canada, incentives are only available at a provincial level in British Columbia and Quebec. Canadians living in other provinces do not have access to incentives of any kind. EV's not only reduce CO2 and other tailpipe pollutants, but they are significantly quieter than conventional internal combustion engine automobiles. By choosing to drive an EV, you would be helping in the reduction of local air pollution, total greenhouse gas and other emissions. To make these vehicles even more affordable to every Canadian, we urge the Canadian Government to provide tax rebates and other incentives for those that choose to purchase zero emission vehicles.

Condition Purchasing Restricitions on Baby Formula
Everyone must have heard by now this baby formula craze with individuals buying tin after tin of formula and selling it overseas to receive profit etc. Furthermore, groups are forming to collect as many tins as possible despite tins being restricted to 2 tins per person. This is absolutely ridiculous and makes not just me angry and feel cheated. As a mother I understand the stress, however I've breastfeed both my children and other woman cant have that convient luxury. Something more needs to happen to ensure the families needing this product are the first in line. Life is stressful enough with newborns and toddlers, parents dont deserve to find their local supermarkets have run out of stock due to greedy people wanting to make a quick dollar. My suggestion is for customers to start being required to provide birth certificates, medicare cards, health care cards and so on to be given the right to buy formula as proof of proper use. This will hopefully prevent this trade to China happening as much as it is, put families at ease and put a stop to greedy childless customers who dont have the proper intention. This needs to stop. Please help to make something, anything happen.

Petition to Colorado Governor, Colorado State House
Ban Pet Retail Stores From Purchasing Puppy Mill Dogs in the State of Colorado
We are a group of 8th graders starting this petition to raise awareness about pet retail stores in the state of Colorado. Pet retail stores mainly buy their puppies from puppy mills, and leave the dogs in abusive conditions. These conditions include; Small glass cages with 6+ dogs inside Cages in the wall with 4-6+ dogs. Dogs water comes from a hamster water bottle attached to the side of the cage Dogs fight for water Dogs don't get walks Dogs are left overnight alone Dogs get really sick Dogs can't leave the cages to relieve themselves and more Pet retail stores mainly buy dogs from puppy mills, so if you ban pet retail stores from buying from puppy mills and only allow them to buy directly from the shelters, this will cause puppy mills to get no profit and run out of business. Sad thing is, these are businesses benefitting off of selling dogs at high numbers. Some dogs that are bought from pet retail stores die shortly afterwards because they are so sick. At one store, dogs food is mixed with paper from the cage. Pet retail stores sell pure breeds for way overpriced prices. California just passed a law that banned all Pet Retail Stores in the state of California, so Colorado should follow in their footsteps. Signing this petition would help raise awareness to Colorado's governor, Jared Polis. Please sign and support our precious puppies and kittens. PETITION UPDATE: This petition ended up reaching 3.5k signs and it keeps growing! We wanted to keep you updated on how we used this petition. We ended up having a meeting with the Majority Leader of the House Alec Garnett on Tuesday, March 19th. He answered a lot of our questions, like the challenges with the bill. We learned that the real issues are people who bring in puppy mill dogs from other states using the internet. There are many challenges with regulating this; Not enough PACFA employees to catch them Not enough regulations Not enough awareness about buying dogs online These challenges are much bigger than they look, but there is a sunset bill that is being passed to get 1.6 FTE in PACFA until 2026. This is a big start if we want an impact now. But, what you guys can do is raise awareness about harmful sellers online. If you do not buy from someone who pulls a puppy out of a truck in a WalMart parking lot, you are cutting off their profits. Humane breeders will look into you and your background to double check that you are a good fit for the puppy. Those are the breeders you want to buy from. Inhumane breeders will refuse to let you see the parents and sell you the dog with no background check (most likely in a parking lot at night) And have a truck full of puppies. So, if we raise awareness about the signs of an inhumane breeder; we can stop accidentally buying puppy mill dogs. We look forward to continue working on this issue. Signed, Maya, Bella, and Maddie

Petition to Target
Expect More: Tell Target to Stop Supporting Slavery in Uzbekistan!
Target Corporation often offers prices that seem too good to be true - how do they keep their prices so low? Turns out some of Target’s products might be so cheap because they are made with slave-picked cotton from Uzbekistan and/or purchased from Daewoo International, a company that accounts for approximately 20% of all cotton processed in Uzbekistan. Every year, during the harvest season, over a million children and adults – including teachers, nurses and doctors – are ripped out of their homes, schools and jobs, and forced to work in the cotton fields of Uzbekistan to meet daily picking quotas. They are often threatened and beaten, as in the case of 18-year-old Navruz Muyzinov who was reported to have been beaten to death by police officers when he left his assigned cotton field before meeting his quota during the 2012 cotton harvest. Over 100 apparel companies (including Target) from all over the world have taken a stand against slavery in Uzbekistan, pledging to not buy slave-picked Uzbek cotton in an effort to push the Uzbek government to end the enslavement of its people. Now, they’re being called upon to follow up on their pledge by joining the Daewoo Protocol, declining to do business with Daewoo until it takes serious steps to stop sourcing slave-picked Uzbek cotton. We expect more from Target, a company that takes pride in holding the highest ethical standards for itself and for its business partners. So we called and asked them to join the Daewoo Protocol. Target said they didn't need to sign the Daewoo Protocol because they have a “No Uzbek Cotton” policy. But such a policy only works if you're willing to enforce it. If Target is truly serious about keeping slavery out of its stores, it needs to stop doing business with Daewoo by agreeing to implement the Daewoo Protocol – a series of steps companies need to take to eliminate slave-picked cotton from their supply chains. Tell Target to sign the Daewoo Protocol, a serious step toward fighting modern slavery in Uzbekistan.
