Petition to Donald Trump, Health And Human Services Secretary Burwell, Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, Governor Charlie Baker, MA HHS Sudders, Senator Warren

Epidemic letter to The President

Please find our letter to President Trump, HHS Burwell, and key Govt. and our state officials regarding a declaration of a public health emergency by HHS Secratary Burwell and a National State Of Emergency by President Donald Trump. Sincerely, Sarah P AhernFounderEndTheStigma EnoughisEnough President Donald TrumpHHS Secretary BurwellSurgeon General Vivek MurthyGov. Charlie BakerMA HHS Mary Lou SuddersMayor Martin Walsh To Whom It May Concern,We the undersigned are writing to demand President Trump, HHS Secretary Burwell, and key federal and state stakeholders declare a National State of Emergency (and subsequent National Public Healthemergency, and state specific PHE ) in response to the public health crisis we are facing that is taking365 beautiful lives every day to a preventable disease. Since the passage of The Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act passed into law on July 12, 2016with no real funding our nation has lost over 10,000 Americans to unintentional drug overdose.Some communities are losing 5 a day and counting. This National Crisis has claimed millions for two decades and is taxing all of our states public health and safety departments. The states simply don't have the means or the infrastructure to" Turn The Tide" in this deadly epidemic. Americans are dying hourly because they can't access treatment for lack of resources and "Stigma " which is alive and well in various communities all across the country.We are devastated, helpless, and angry as this preventable condition kills our loved ones, destroysfamilies and is unraveling the very fabric of our society. We are tired of our loved ones who struggle with the disease of addiction continuing to be treated assecond class citizens for having a medical disease by the very people tasked to help. Hospitals and ERsare shuttering their doors in an epidemic they caused violating the very oath they took to heal andprotect and most importantly do no harm. This is one of THE biggest barriers to treatment.There is no more time to wait, This epidemic is like having an F4 tornado dropping in every community.Just imagine that, Without a National response, We will not beat this and We will lose an entiregeneration. We implore HHS secretary Burwell to declare a Public Health Emergency in accordance with PublicHealth Services Act ( PHS) ( section 301, 319) FFDC Act, Social Security Act and activate the US Public Health Service ( USPHS),the National Disaster Medical system ( NOMS) and deploy the Medical Reserve Corps. We implore President Donald Trump to then declare through Executive order a National Emergency inaccordance with National Emergency Act ( NEA) sections 201, 319 to authorize a true NationalEmergency response as Congress couldn't be bothered to take this National Crisis seriously even in light of the preventable deaths mounting daily. The declaration of a National State of Emergency will authorize the National Medical Corp. (NMC) toassist communities in hospitals, army bases, hospital ships to treat acutely patients who need that level of care as would happen during a National disaster. It will also authorize the HHS Secretary to release funds directly to the states and local communities. It will demand hospitals open beds to patientssuffering with SUD and authorize use of federal facilities including Military bases/hospitals/ships fortreatment. In 2009 President Obama declared a state of emergency in response to the H1N1 flu strain. During this time I was a Practice Manager for an Internist and saw first hand how quickly federal, state, and local resources were activated, yet no deaths occurred during this outbreak. Again with Ebola billions were spent on a disease that netted zero US deaths. The same I fear will happen with the Zika virus where no US deaths have occurred yet Congress again is asking for billions. We can no longer wait for the infrastructure to be built or for Congress to vote on the 2017 budgetwithout a guarantee of promised funding.We need help Now!We carry the weight of millions of Americans and their lost loved ones who stand with us and are ready to serve.

Petition to Brett Guthrie, Congressman, Kentucky

SAVE Your Local Educational Opportunity Center

The Trump Administration is working to eliminate TRIO Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) programs that support adults in completing and furthering their education and career goals. In 2016, EOC programs assisted and supported more than 225,000 low-income adult learners who would be the first people in their families to enroll in college to complete and further their education through career and technical education programs, community college and  four-year institutions. An increasing number of adult students are furthering their education as a way of moving out of low-wage and dead-end employment. EOC helps low-wage and unemployed Americans move into higher paying jobs and contribute more revenue to the local economy. Higher wages mean more taxes revenue and greater local spending power. If EOC programs disappear, this is what adult learners and their families will lose: ● GED and High School Equivalency Support and Completion ● Academic Advising ● Personal Counseling ● Career and Technical Workshops ● Financial Aid Assistance ● Admissions Assistance ● Financial Literacy ● Connections to Disability Services ● Veterans Support ● Supporting Homeless and Foster Youth ● Scholarship Awareness and Outreach What can you do to help? We need YOU to save local EOC programs across America. Our goal is 10,000 signatures in 30 days. Please help us by signing our national petition TODAY! Go to https://www.change.org   Also, contact your local Congressmen and women, and share with them the importance of the EOC! Please SHARE with your friends and family. Partner with us and let’s reach this goal together!
