Petition to TD Garden

Make General Admissions at TD Garden on the 26th Safer

On October 26th there will be a Twenty One Pilots concert at TD Garden in Boston. The current policy in place for General Admissions for that concert is that there will be no camping or lines allowed and no wristbands given out. This can, and has been known to, cause a massive rush for the doors when finally allowed. People have broken bones during rushes like these. They are a huge hazard and not a particularly fair method of lining people up. Because of TD Garden's location, allowing a long line to form is not entirely feasible, but in the past they've given out wrist bands that mark one's spot in the queue so no line is necessary, nor is a rush necessary, and no one cuts or cheats. There is no reason why this policy can't be put in place now. It's not too late.  This is for everyone's safety, not just mine and my friends'. A bunch of kids rushing a building that is set next to a busy intersection/street is not a good idea and could result in serious injuries. On top of that, this can not be excused as "standard" policy for venues, even big ones. We've now seen two examples on this tour alone of venues that protect and support the concertgoers. That's how it should be always and everywhere. Most venues provide some sort of line security and a way to organise people, whereas TD Garden is doing nothing of the sort which will likely result in situations similar to Tour de Columbus where the rush was a free-for-all and people got crushed under each other. If we can get the attention of TD Garden and spread awareness on this issue among venues then maybe we can affect not only this concert, but also make future concerts more safe, accessible, and enjoyable. We've seen venues that do it right and take care of people. It's time TD Garden steps up to do the same. They should be providing wristbands for everyone one who shows up ahead of the official line at least. Let's make that happen.

Save the Sedona Arizona Cultural Park!

Hey everyone! This petition is just the first step to trying to get the beautiful Sedona Cultural Park to regain its original glory. Here is some information on the Sedona Cultural Park:The Sedona Cultural Park was a beautiful place to watch a show or a concert from 2000 until 2003. In 2003, the owner of the Sedona Cultural Park field bankruptcy, at the time, the Park not having enough popularity or funds to continue. In 2006, an organization called “Save The Sedona Cultural Park” bought the beautiful venue, but less than a year later, they didn’t have the funds to proceed either. To my understanding and research, this organization has split up since the bankruptcy, but I am doing my best in researching to get people who see the beauty and potential in this amazing. I have emailed multiple members of the Sedona City Council, at this time simply requesting information about the Cultural Park, since the last written article on this Park was in Jan 2017. It’s no secret that people travel far distances to see shows, not even mentioning watching a show with an incredible view. Please help us prove that we are not the only ones who see Sedona’s Cultural Park’s incredible potential. Why do we need to save this place?Well first of all, what good is it doing anyone just sitting there?! I believe with a little money and a lot of TLC, the Sedona Cultural Park could not only be a money maker for the city of Sedona, but a beautiful place to make memories. Is it in danger of being torn down? To be 100% honest, I really don’t know. That is why I have reached out to many people, requesting information. I do know, that there has been many conversations among City Council members talking about a land swap with Yavapai County College that sits next to it, and talk about a major money-maker for the city: turning it into a 7 acre resort. All in all, I do not know what is the current plan for this place, but I do know that we need to do something to help. Today, the Sedona Cultural Park sits, overgrown, awaiting someone to see past the weeds and dirt. Please share this with friends and family to help us show that the Sedona Cultural Park has to be helped! Note: Once you sign, you will receive updates! I will let everyone know if I get any response from city council members and others that I have reached out. Thank you to all our supporters!! Picture Credit: Sedona Red Rock News
