Tell Pampers, wireless “smart” baby diapers are not safe!
Companies including Pampers are launching "smart high tech diapers" with sensors attached to diapers to sense wetness and track urine. The sensors work in concert with a Wi-Fi baby monitor and an app that lets parents keep track of their baby's diaper situation indicating when the baby needs to be changed. Parents need to know about safety considerations from electromagnetic exposure when buying wireless tech devices. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends reducing exposure from wireless devices. "They’re not toys. They have radiation that is emitted from them and the more we can keep it off the body and use in other ways, it will be safer,” said Jennifer A. Lowry, M.D. Placing wireless tech devices next to developing infants’ genitals is SO WRONG! The World Health Organization also lists wireless radiation as a possible “carcinogen,” which means “cancer causing.” Children’s bone marrow absorbs significantly more energy due to their rapidly developing body. There are decades of peer-reviewed studies demonstrating serious biological health effects including immune dysfunction, sleep and memory disturbances, and potential risk of reproductive harm. We're asking for your support in letting Pampers know that we find the this product unacceptable. Wireless safety was NEVER tested on children, yet Pampers will be right next to a baby’s reproductive system. Experts advise that parents take precautions. "Until and unless we learn that radiation from portable electronic devices is safe, we should assume that it's harmful," says Hugh S. Taylor, M.D., chair of obstetrics and gynecology at Yale School of Medicine. Huggies also launched a smart diaper in Korea and is planning on bringing to the US soon. Please help us send this message by signing our petition! Thanks in advance for your support.

Remove White Supremacist Content From YouTube
In the wake of the most recent mosque shooting I believe it is time to take action as a community and remove white supremacist content from our platforms. One of the largest platforms for white supremacist content is PewDiePie's YouTube channel. PewDiePie has on many occasions proven once and again to promote and affiliate himself with white supremacist and Nazi ideologies. Worst of all his channel is very much aimed toward children in their formative years. The New Zealand mosque shooter even mentioned PewDiePie by name and asked people to subscribe. PewDiePie has in the past: used the N slur twice in two separate videos and has hired people to say the N slur (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jdh7EQRgps video of him saying the swedish version (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCOShs17UfE he has promoted videos that contain Adolf Hitler speeches and anti-Semitic cartoons (https://www.wsj.com/articles/disney-severs-ties-with-youtube-star-pewdiepie-after-anti-semitic-posts-1487034533 he paid Indian men on website Fiverr to hold up signs that say death to all jews (https://www.wsj.com/articles/disney-severs-ties-with-youtube-star-pewdiepie-after-anti-semitic-posts-1487034533 he performed the nazi heil in one of his videos (https://www.wsj.com/articles/disney-severs-ties-with-youtube-star-pewdiepie-after-anti-semitic-posts-1487034533 he used images of famous African-Americans (Neil deGrasse Tyson, Barack Obama) captioned with the wrong names (https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2018/apr/05/whats-up-pewdiepie-the-troubling-content-of-youtubes-biggest-star he made a clip of a man dressed as Jesus holding a sign stating "hitler did absolutely nothing wrong" (https://www.wsj.com/articles/disney-severs-ties-with-youtube-star-pewdiepie-after-anti-semitic-posts-1487034533 he makes rape jokes (https://pewdiepie.fandom.com/wiki/It%27s_Raping_Time (http://pewdie.tumblr.com/post/34309686617/no-more-rape-jokes in his face-swapping video he repeatedly uses an image of actress Leslie Jones to represent Harambe, the gorilla killed in the Cincinnati zoo last year. (https://youtu.be/EivRj_VfMgo Sean Vanman of Campo Anto studios which developed the popular game, Firewatch, has filed DMCA reports to remove the streams containing his games from the internet. Even though PewDiePie's streams have brought his company over 5.7 million views, Mr. Vanman saw the dangers. The Disney corporation also saw the dangers and terminated all contracts with PewDiePie. Up until 2017, YouTube considered his content "brand safe". In 2017 they took minor action to appease angered customers. It is not enough. Even if PewDiePie cleaned up his act his comment sections are still a cesspool of white supremacist activities and commentaries. At what point is YouTube legally responsible for the content it provides and allows on its platform? I believe that his actions constitute a clear and present danger to society. YouTube’s guidelines state, "if content is intended to be humorous or satirical, it may remain online, “even if offensive or in poor taste.” However, “if the uploader’s intent is to incite violence or hatred, it will be removed.” How long will YouTube remain negligent? It's Time to remove PewDiePie from YouTube permanently and develop AI to find and remove extremist material instead of having the SPLC do their work for them. Please sign this petition.
Petition to North Carolina State House, North Carolina State Senate
End FGM in North Carolina
Earlier this year, the U.S. Department of Justice decided not to appeal a Detroit ruling that overturned the federal ban on Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). This has put girls across the United States at risk, as supporters of FGM are now uninhibited in many states from performing the procedure. In states without anti-FGM legislation, the absence of a federal ban leaves women and girls in danger. According to the Centers for Disease Control, an estimated 513,000 women and girls have undergone or are at risk of FGM in the United States. Many of these women at risk are from my own home state, North Carolina. Before learning about these loopholes in the law, I had no idea FGM was happening in this country, let alone in my own state. When my mother sent me a video about FGM, I was shocked - both by the practice itself, and how little I knew about its presence in the United States. The lack of discussion surrounding FGM allows it to flourish in secret, and to put so many girls at risk of harm every day. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ definition, FGM is a human rights abuse, a form of gender-based violence and child abuse. This is something we should not allow to continue any further. Together, we can help make a difference and keep girls safe. Please sign this petition urging legislators to pass a law banning FGM in the state of North Carolina. No girl should have to endure the pain and trauma of FGM. North Carolina needs to take steps to protect girls, and to avoid becoming an FGM “destination state”. Please join me in asking our legislators to pass a law in North Carolina criminalizing FGM.

Stop the Damage and Find a Cure for Victims of MRI Contrast Toxicity
Thirty million magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans are performed each year in the US alone, and many more worldwide. One of every three patients undergoing an MRI scan is injected with the contrast agent, gadolinium. This helps “light up” the results more clearly for the radiologists. Gadolinium is a highly-toxic rare metal. It has no place in the human body. When gadolinium was introduced as a contrast agent, it was prepared in such a way that it was thought to leave the body naturally within 3 days of the MRI scan. Scientific research carried out in the past decade has clearly disproved this. Gadolinium is retained in the body for many years, possibly a lifetime, and concentrates specifically in brain and bones. Tens of millions of patients are exposed to this known toxic substance every year, when they undergo an MRI scan. Many of these patients are young children, whose bodies are still developing. The long-term harm of gadolinium accumulation has not yet been quantified. However, there are already many victims of gadolinium poisoning who suffer painful and crippling symptoms. Recent studies show that gadolinium contrast is used far too liberally and is not necessary in many cases. We must voice our concerns to the FDA, the World Health Organization and the medical community. We ask the FDA, the World Health Organization and health authorities worldwide to: Warn physicians and patients about the risks of gadolinium. Restrict gadolinium use only to cases where the benefits outweigh the risks. Invest in rapid development of safe gadolinium alternatives. Sponsor large studies of gadolinium toxicity in patients who have undergone MRI scans. Promote the development of effective treatments to remove toxic gadolinium from patients affected by it.

Pembroke Pines City Park Playgrounds need Lights installed and ADA Mulch to replace sand.
Many of our children are forced to stop playing and leave our city parks at sunset because there is no lighting available for playgrounds in Pembroke Pines. Many other cities supply lighting with the additional reason that many shady characters use these playgrounds for questionable purposes after sunset because there are no lights. It's time for us to do the same in Pembroke Pines and protect our children at playgrounds. Please sign this petition to tell our City Commissioners to install lights at our park playgrounds just like they've done already at all the soccer fields in the City Parks. We are requesting for the lights to be turned on until 9 p.m. only when the soccer field lights are turned on at the same time. Soccer fields are presently being used with lights beyond sunset even though the parks are technically supposed to be closed at sunset.

Protect Our Children! Child Abuse Should Not Be Exempt Ever!
Imagine a young child having the courage to approach an adult to tell them they’re being sexually abused. Most adults would report the allegation of abuse to law enforcement right away. Most adults would want to stop this abuser, preventing them from abusing any further. Most would want the community at large to be aware if this predator so that they can protect their own children. Unfortunately that’s not always the case. In Montana the Supreme Court has ruled that there are some EXEMPTIONS. In Montana you have an option of not reporting child abuse! Yes, you’re reading correctly. There are a select group of institutions that are exempt. Institutions that have the right to deal with child abuse on their own terms never involving law enforcement, never notifying the public of this danger. Taken/Quoted from Matt Volz Associated Press. Montana law requires officials, including clergy, to report child abuse to state authorities when there is reasonable cause for suspicion. However, the state’s high court said in its 7-0 decision that the Jehovah’s Witnesses fall under an exemption to that law in this case. “Clergy are not required to report known or suspected child abuse if the knowledge results from a congregation member’s confidential communication or confession and if the person making the statement does not consent to disclosure,” Justice Beth Baker wrote in the opinion. In this case the abuser was kicked out for a year then reinstated! Because it was never reported this abuser was allowed to abuse again and he did. There should be no exemptions on child abuse! How do you protect the children in the community if this information is kept secret. Just like an individual seeing a therapist has confidentiality, at some point if that person is a threat all confidentially is thrown out the window. Child abuse must be reported period no exemptions!

NEW SAFE FIELDS for VUSD Schools Now!
The fields that our children play on EVERYDAY, MULTIPLE times a day at school are UNSAFE!! Countless children have had broken bones and sprained body parts one too many times!! The gopher problem is out of control and must be addressed and fixed NOW! Funds should be directed to get NEW, SAFE fields for our children to play on. This is a huge liability issue for our schools. Their job is to protect our children while they are at school. Public funds and tax dollars are meant for our community and our public schools. We call for every VUSD school to: exterminate gopher and any pest control issues , lay a preventative netting over newly leveled dirt base, lay new grass or AstroTurf over all fields where our children play. Parents and school staff are more than willing to volunteer our time to assist in tasks to get this job done. VUSD make this a priority today!!! My son Donovan, a Fifth grader at Mound Elementary (the largest elementary school in Ventura) broke his arm Thursday, September 12th while playing soccer at recess with friends. He was thrown off balance while going for the ball and fell. His hand went in a gopher hole and his body kept going. He completely broke his radius, fractured his ulna and elbow. He will be in a full arm cast for 6 weeks. The growth plate in his elbow was pushed out of position. Many other parents at Mound have expressed concern over this issue on our Facebook Group parent page on my post. These parents have written stories of their children also being hurt while playing on the field, including but not limited to broken ankles, sprained ankles and broken arms. Please, if you are a parent of a VUSD student who has been injured while playing on a field at school, comment here about their story. Please sign and share to our Ventura public school community!!! Let’s get this done! Thank you so much for your support ❤️ ***If you are prompted to donate after signing, please do not . This is change.org asking if you want to pay to help gain more attention to the petition. ****also please share stories of injured students in the comments. Mr. Tyner is going through the nurse log at Mound to tally all injuries and gather statistical data.

Stop The MacArthur
Children should not be exposed to adult entertainment and alcohol! We must stop The MacArthur from getting an adult entertainment license (like strip clubs have) and a license to sell alcohol from 6:00 a.m.-2:00 a.m. daily directly adjacent to Charles White Elementary School and across the street from a park filled with thousands of children. If they obtain this adult entertainment and 20-hour/day liquor license, they will open a huge nightclub complex inside the old Park Plaza Hotel, which will expose children to all kinds of harm, greatly increase crime in our already crime-ridden neighborhood, and gravely endanger pedestrians. Our neighborhood has 5 times the national average of pedestrian casualties and is a major focus of Mayor Eric Garcetti's Vision Zero Initiative to reduce pedestrian fatalities and injuries. If The MacArthur's proposed project is approved, it will flood our tiny, congested neighborhood with thousands of drunk drivers, and reckless Uber, Lyft, taxi drivers, and valet parkers, resulting in a mass pedestrian casualty crisis. Please let Mayor Eric Garcetti, Councilmember Gil Cedillo, the LAUSD, and Vision Zero know that they must stop this proposed project from being approved and protect the lives and safety of their constituents. Los niños no deben estar expuestos al entretenimiento para adultos y al alcohol! Debemos evitar que MacArthur obtenga una licencia de entretenimiento para adultos (como los clubes de striptease) y una licencia para vender alcohol de 6:00 a.m. a 2:00 a.m. diariamente, directamente adyacente a Charles White Elementary School y al otro lado de la calle de un parque lleno de miles de niños. Si obtienen esta licencia de entretenimiento para adultos y licores de 20 horas al día, abrirán un enorme complejo de clubes nocturnos dentro del viejo Park Plaza Hotel, que expondrá a los niños a todo tipo de daños, lo que aumentará enormemente el crimen en nuestro vecindario, que ya cuenta con el crimen y gravemente poner en peligro a los peatones. Nuestro vecindario tiene 5 veces el promedio nacional de víctimas peatonales y es un enfoque importante de la Iniciativa Visión Cero del alcalde Eric Garcetti para reducir las muertes y lesiones de peatones. Si se aprueba el proyecto propuesto de The MacArthur, inundará nuestro pequeño y congestionado vecindario con miles de conductores ebrios, y los imprudentes Uber, Lyft, taxistas y aparcacoches, lo que provocará una crisis masiva de víctimas peatonales. Por favor, informe al Alcalde Eric Garcetti, al Concejal Gil Cedillo, al LAUSD y a Vision Zero que deben detener la aprobación de este proyecto propuesto y proteger las vidas y la seguridad de sus electores.
