Petition to Türkiye Bursları
INETRNATIONAL STUDENTS NEED SOLUTIONS!!
Dear Türkiye Bursları, We have many questions in our minds that really stress out all of us to the point that we cannot focus on anything else since the new decision about accommodation was reveled: 1. What does each option entail? and what are the guarantees? 2. How many of us KYK dormitories will take considering that YTB will have a quota and that it will be for undergraduate students? And what will happen to those who apply for KYK dormitories and get a negative answer? 3. KYK supported foundation dorms of the list you sent us are starting from 700TL per month and above.. what is your plan concerning this? and does YTB have any kind of agreement with them? 4. Students in big cities who already strated looking for apartments to rent are surprised by the high real estate index (more than 1650TL in Istanbul on the 16th of August). And even for sharing flats: rent fees + bills + food is at least 800TL per month without mentioning the deposit that varies from an apartment to the other. There is also the time and efforts it takes to find the right apartment for rent and to find the right flatmates. We also need to point out here that a big number of the students are in their countries at the moment. How can YTB help us with all this? You said that the aim of those kind of policy changes is to raise the quality of the services and to raise satisfaction to the highest level, we choose to believe in you when we left our countries, our familes, whole lives and came to embrace this experience and to be a part of the Turkiye Bursları family and we want to keep believing in you but if you want to help us with this we suggest that : 1. Adapting the new policy should be optional for the students. 2. The accomadation support amount should be doubled for the graduate students in big cities. 3. The application of the new policy for those who selected it starts after one semester. We hope and we believe that you will understand and feel us, and consider all the pressure we go through. We invite you to read our requests this time, and each of you imagines that it is a letter from his /her expatriate child. Faithfully.

Petition to The West Virginia State Legislature
Solutions for West Virginia Teacher Strike - 2018
Currently, West Virginia teachers in all 55 counties are striking due to rising health insurance costs and low pay. The work stoppage affects teachers, students, parents, and the efficient functioning of a day to day operations of an educational system. We would like to see this situation resolved. Here is the proposal that we ask for teachers, service personnel, public employees, and citizens to sign. These specific ideas are a framework we would like to take to members of the legislature: 1. Reverse PEIA changes to pre 2014-2015 coverage: We propose the legislature approve a measure that would have PEIA revert to its policies from the 2014-2015 fiscal year until a long-term solution can be found. We want a commitment to find a dedicated revenue stream for PEIA into the future and the flexibility to meet the increasing costs of medical care. 2. Investigate PEIA fraud and eliminate wasteful spending: Wasteful spending occurs at all levels of government, and we would ask the legislature to find misuse and abuse of funds, which would contribute to long term savings. 3. Increase taxes on alcohol and / or tobacco products: We propose increasing the sales tax on alcohol 6% to 7.5%. We propose increasing the excise tax on beer production from $5.50 per 31 gallon barrel to $6.00 per 31 gallon barrel. This particular excise tax has not changed since 1951. We propose an increase on cigarettes from $1.20 per pack to $1.75 per pack. 4. Provide public employees with a 3% raise this year, 1% the following year, and 1% the next year: Teacher pay in West Virginia ranks 48th out of 50 states. In 2014, the legislature made a goal to increase starting pay of a teacher to $43,000 by 2019. No action has been taken with regard to this particular goal. 5. Drop punitive bills aimed at weakening teacher unions: The legislature has bills drafted that would eliminate teacher seniority, require annual permission from teachers before unions could draft dues, and lowering standards for teacher certification. These bills will not help the education system in West Virginia.

Real Small business solutions during COVID-19.
Small business owners need your help! Social based & non essential small businesses are doing their part for a healthy Canada and closing their doors to promote self isolation and social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, but the impact to owners can and will be devastating. Small business in Canada makes up 90% of the economy. Most of these businesses pay monthly leases. Leases that are dependent on foot traffic. While the addition of EI support is a lovely gesture, the reality is these amounts are not close to the monthly operating costs of our businesses. The governments of Ontario and Canada have tried to keep the masses content, but small business owners have gone without. Everyday we are waiting for our government to announce a fair solution that will help us. We have invested our savings and time, we have created jobs, we are a large part of our communities. It would be devastating to have these businesses shut their doors forever. Another loan is not what we need. We have loans. We have loan payments. Approving loans for us now will only set us up for future failure. Mr. Premier & Mr. Prime Minister, please call for the pause of all lease payments for these businesses who are doing their part to ensure the safety of Canadians during this pandemic.

Prohibit Food Waste by Supermarkets in Canada
Prohibit Food Waste by Supermarkets in Canada In February 2016, France became the ONLY country in the world to stop supermarkets from wasting unused food. Now, supermarkets of a certain size must donate the edible food to partnered charities or face fines. This is a huge step to fight hunger problems not just in France, but hopefully the whole world. It is definitely a step that a progressive country, such as, Canada is capable of taking. As a country with a relatively good reputation, it is our duty to assist the less fortunate. The UN estimates that solving the global food crisis could cost roughly $30 billion a year. Compared to what the world spends on military every year ($1.6 trillion in 2015) that amount should not be a problem to achieve. There are kids that go to sleep with no food in their stomach while grocery stores throw away edible food. Why is it that we have this problem that food is being thrown out even though it is still edible? As a multicultural, beautiful, educated country WHY is it that there are still hungry families among us? We hope this petition will force the Canadian government to lead by example similar to France, where supercentres of a certain size; must donate their foods instead of throwing it out. For instance: Foods that are packaged wrongly or damaged but are still edible. Foods that can’t be sold but still edible. In Canada alone, there is $31 billion worth of food that ends up in the Landfills or composts each year. The Canadian government can use France’s legislation as a base model and example to set the legislation in Canada. It is not impossible because countries like France and Italy have already accomplished this task. It is an act that will further benefit not just the people of Canada, but our reputation as a country.

Yes to Homeless Solutions for Koreatown
Koreatown has a growing homeless population. We also have a growing population in general. Things are changing rapidly for everyone. And it’s time to address the visible fact that our area is severely lacking in local resources for the homeless. We, the residents and stakeholders of Koreatown want to see a solution NOW for housing the homeless. This is the time for action. Consolidating services and shelter to one area of our neighborhood at 682 South Vermont will be a great first step! Please add your voice as a voice of compassion and let our elected officials and neighbors know we support a homeless shelter right here in the heart of the densest and most vibrant neighborhood in LA. Lets get some help for our homeless neighbors here and now.

Enough is Enough PDX: We need solutions for deteriorating public safety and livability
Enough is Enough PDX is a City-Wide campaign led by neighborhoods to demand our elected officials at the state, city, and county level respond and take seriously the property crime wave and deteriorating livability issues in neighborhoods across Portland.Our public spaces such as parks, nature areas, residential streets, business districts and recreational multi-use paths have become illegal camping spaces occupied by camping. In a majority of these camps, service resistant individuals live and use heroin and methamphetamine, and support those habits by stealing from the neighborhoods they are located in on a daily basis. While neighbors across the city make thousands of reports, response from the city and state is slow, inadequate and often non-existent. Neighbors across the city are reporting these camps thousands of times a year to the city and state and the response is slow and inadequate. Regular sweeps of camps occur but crime caused by these camps, which often sit weeks or sometimes months before a sweep is not addressed. Campers simply return to the same spot or relocate in the neighborhood the very next day. Portland Police are turning a blind eye to crimes that in years past would have resulted in swift enforcement. We’ve heard from officers that they are both receiving mixed communication from elected officials about the enforcement of laws on the books and are reluctant to enforce the law because of a lack of support from prosecutors who drop charges and let people right back out onto the streets. There isn’t a week that goes by where neighbors are not being stolen from or burglarized. Fires that burn down structures and natural areas in our neighborhoods are a regular occurrence. Hazardous waste and other pollutants are commonplace in public spaces. Property owners cannot receive protection from squatters. Violent crime is common among the camps. In recent months, there have been neighbors stabbed by drug addicted campers and even service resistant campers stabbing other campers.This situation is untenable and has reached a boiling point. We call on elected officials at the city, state, and county level to undertake the following actions: Mayor and Police Commissioner Ted Wheeler: Issue a memorandum to Portland Police in support of officers enforcing laws around livability and addressing issues that are deteriorating neighborhood livability. Meet with organizers of the Enough is Enough PDX Campaign to discuss these issues and tour some of the residential areas and talk to neighbors. Work with your team to identify changes to policing strategy that can be made to begin addressing these concerns. Form Triage Teams with law enforcement, mental health providers and citizens to identify needs of those living on the streets. Chief Danielle Outlaw: Issue a memorandum clarifying that officers are allowed and expected to enforce laws equally and not exercise discretion to consider individuals housing status to decide whether or not to enforce laws. Work with precinct command staff city-wide to ensure that there is not miscommunication about enforcement of laws as some officers are still operating under past administrations hands-off policy and tell neighbors they cannot do anything. Increase funding for ATV patrols of Multi-Use Paths and Parks in East Portland Commissioner Nick Fish: Work with Park Bureau Leadership to ensure that parks are getting equal attention from Park Rangers. Currently, Park Rangers spend more time downtown and at newer parks than they do East Portland Parks. Work with Park Bureau Leadership to have Rangers visiting parks at their closing times to remove people still in the park and to address any park code violations. Work with Park Bureau Leadership to have Rangers use data and recent calls and reports to prioritize resources. Work with Park Bureau Leadership to have Park Staff more adequately cleanup needles and trash left on a near daily basis at parks. Oregon Department of Transportation: Remove trees and bushes in areas along freeways where camps have hidden as these camps are starting fires and are using their seclusion to hide from police after committing thefts at residences surrounding them. Add fencing or other barriers to ODOT properties where camping has been a problem; this will address recurrence and reduce the cost of repeated cleanups. Work with cleanup crews to ensure they are cleaning up all waste and trash as neighbors often see trash and waste left after sweeps. Turn 205 Multi-Use Path Lighting back on. Lack of lighting has made it unsafe for residents and kids who walk the path near camps. Those using the path cannot see and avoid contact with hazardous materials including human waste and biohazards.. Multnomah County Board of Commissioners: Talk with Multnomah County Health Leadership about the Needle Exchange Program. One of the sites for East Portland is in Montavilla at St Peters and Paul Church. The program is not requiring needles be traded back in 1 for 1. As a result, thousands of needles are left in streets and parks in neighborhoods. This taxpayer funded program essentially requires neighbors to pay for needles to be discarded in their neighborhood. Talk Multnomah County Health Leadership about the Needle Exchange Program. Demand that they work to install a needle drop box in Montavilla Park and give out more receptacles to the public. Consider locating Needle Exchange Programs in properties that are equipped to handle emergencies associated with drug use i.e Police precincts, hospitals and medical facilities. Establish conduct standards for all needle exchange sites where clients who harass or threaten neighbors or leave needles or cause other public safety issues adjacent to a site are suspended from services for a period of time. This will help alleviate some of the chronic issues near exchange sites and demonstrate the program expects clients to be neighborly.
