Petition to Donald Trump, U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives
We want to see Trump's tax returns.
President Trump calls reports of his alleged compromising ties to Russian businesses and government officials, “FAKE NEWS - A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT.” He can prove it by releasing his tax returns. Who does our president owe money to? Can they use his debt to manipulate our Commander-in-Chief? Is he receiving income from foreign sources to his businesses from which he has yet to divest? The answers are easy to discover if he releases his tax returns. In a press conference, Trump told the assembled reporters, “The only people who seem to care about my tax returns are you people here.” Our country does care. In fact, according to an ABC/Washington Post poll, 74% of Americans (including 53% of Republicans) want him to RELEASE HIS TAX RETURNS. Every major presidential candidate for the past 40 years has voluntarily released their tax returns. President Nixon even released his tax returns while under audit. Why does President Trump refuse to release his taxes if he has nothing to hide? Please sign and SHARE this petition calling on President Trump to RELEASE HIS TAX RETURNS NOW.

Congress: Impeach Jeff Sessions on Charges of Perjury
President Bill Clinton lied under oath about an adulterous affair. He was impeached for committing perjury. He lost his license to practice law in the State of New York. At the time, Republicans in Congress called for his resignation. Attorney General Jeff Sessions lied under oath about a meeting with the Russian Ambassador. Just like Clinton, Sessions should face a Congressional investigation and a Special Prosecutor. Just like Clinton, Sessions should lose his license to practice law. Just like in Clinton's case, Republicans in Congress should call for Sessions to resign. Jeff Sessions is supposed to be the nation's top law enforcement officer. There is video evidence that he committed perjury. Perjury is a violation of the law that Sessions is supposed to enforce. If no one is above the law, then Sessions must resign, be fired, or impeached.
Petition to The United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate
Stop President Trump's proposed budget cuts to the National Institutes of Health
President Donald Trump released a budget proposal on 3/16/17 which calls for a $6 billion dollar cut in funding to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), or 20% of the NIH's total budget. The NIH uses more than 80% of its budget to provide grant money to university, hospital, and research center scientists who study relevant public health issues. The NIH is the major funding source for research on cancer, asthma, diabetes, autism and developmental disabilities, Alzheimer's Disease, as well as many other debilitating diseases. NIH funding in its current configuration is inadequate to provide scientists with the tools and training that they need to combat these problems. Lack of funding has left many highly trained and qualified scientists with little or no resources to conduct their work which in many cases had strong potential to make significant advances in human health and medicine. The proposed budget cut would paralyze biomedical research; Both ongoing research progress as well as new and innovative research will be halted. These cuts will directly result in fewer advances in medicine. The proposed cuts will also alter the trajectory of science, as they stand to decimate the funding which is necessary for the training of new scientists. This will result in a reduction in the number of highly skilled biomedical experts in this country. Please do not allow this to happen. The NIH budget needs to be increased, not slashed, if we consider health a priority in this country.

Do Not Eliminate or Reduce Funding for the U.S. Department of State's ECE Programs
To Whomever This May Concern, According to a recently released budget blueprint for the United States of America, the new plan: "Reduces funding for the Department of State's Educational and Cultural Exchange (ECE) Programs. ECE resources would focus on sustaining the flagship Fulbright Program, which forges lasting connections between Americans and emerging leaders around the globe." Programs funded by the Department of State support international democracy and the move towards peaceful relations with countries whose native tongues have been deemed "critical ", or essential for our national security and economic competitiveness. The NSLI-Y program provides opportunities for students to learn and become immersed in cultures that speak eight critical languages: Arabic, Persian, Korean, Chinese, Hindi, Turkish, Russian, and Bahasa. These are languages that are not commonly taught in American schools. The programs funded by the U.S. Department of State are composed of American youth from all backgrounds, races, and ethnicities. Providing young citizens with equal opportunities to serve as ambassadors for our nation is essential in order to gain intercultural and linguistic competency. International exchange is crucial for a country who claims to be a "World Power". If funding is cut for programs that encourage positive relations and cultural awareness, we will lose touch with the rest of the world and cut ties that have gotten our nation to the position that it is in today. According to Steven J. Hadley, Former President George W. Bush's national security adviser: "Many veteran diplomats said that injecting money into the Defense Department while slashing the State Department made little sense, since the functions of the two go hand in hand... [They] learned in both Iraq and Afghanistan that our military needs an effective civilian partner if victories on the battlefields are going to be converted into a sustainable peace... And only a sustainable peace ensures that post-conflict states do not return again to becoming safe havens for terrorists." The proposed cuts will take away the opportunities for thoughtful, motivated, compassionate Americans to be surrounded by locals in countries where they are the most misunderstood, forging lasting relationships with the hosting community, and improving relations among nations. Thank you for taking the time to listen to the voices of many advocates, students, and alumni not only across America, but across the world. We would appreciate it if you would consider signing this in order to keep the spirit of citizen diplomacy and intercultural communication alive.

Petition to Charlie Baker
Make Massachusetts a Sanctuary State
This petition is in support of The Safe Communities Act to make Massachusetts a sanctuary state for undocumented immigrants. President-elect Donald Trump has promised throughout his campaign to round up and deport millions of undocumented immigrants from all over the United States. As of November 13th, 2016, he underlined his resolve to begin carrying out this plan immediately, tearing apart families and communities. As a state that voted against Trump in every single county, we are obligated to disavow the anti-immigrant sentiment and xenophobia that have been core tenets of Trump's presidential campaign. We must act now. The effects of Trump's inhumane proposal have already become clear. Children are terrified that their parents will be deported and the Boston Public School system has called in counselors to help students process their fears. Immigrants, undocumented or otherwise, are the lifeblood of this country. They are our friends, our neighbors, our classmates, our colleagues. They deserve to know that they will not be removed from their homes, separated from their loved ones, or detained indefinitely with no recourse. They deserve to know that we, the residents of Massachusetts, will not tolerate their persecution.Contact info to call your governor and state legislators!

Please Save the Medicare Program.
Please save the Medicare system Mr. Paul Ryan wants to turn the program into a premium support system. Which would give people a fixed amount of money to purchase private insurance. The Association of Community United, Inc. together with We the People of the United State of America ask you to join us in protecting Medicare and ensure Republicans do not succeed in efforts to change the Medicare program. President-Elect Donald Trump campaigned on promises not to cut Medicare and other public health programs. Medicare works wonders for millions of American families, providing affordable access to today's most advanced health care. Poll after poll invariably confirms its popularity. But will Medicare continue to work for us and for the next generations? That's the question that congress and the Trump administration need to be asking in the coming months. At The Association of Community United, Inc. we continue to believe passionately in this program, which has allowed our citizens and handicaps to age with dignity.

IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP & PENCE
The fact that Trump’s unethical behavior does not shock anyone is exactly the problem. Trump’s alleged efforts to resolve his conflicts of interest and impending violation of the U.S. Constitution have done nothing to meaningfully accomplish either. Every ethics expert, up to and including the independent Office of Government Ethics, agree that Trump is still poised to commit an impeachable offense on day one. Ethics experts and former White House lawyers have expressed deep concern over Donald Trump’s plan to separate himself from his business. The OGE director said that handing over control to his sons is not enough, he called it ‘wholly inadequate.’ Given that he hasn’t released his taxes, given that 74% of Americans want him to release his taxes, will he at least give a list of who he is in debt to, and if not, why not? Last week Trump’s lawyer talked a lot about separating from his business interests. Both last night and today he scheduled a visit to his own hotel to promote the dining room there. How do you square those two things? FBI Releases Shocking Statement-Russia Helped Trump Win Two U.S. intelligence officials confirmed to NBC that FBI Director James Comey and National intelligence James Clapper concur with the CIA"s view of Russian involvement in the election. They also confirmed the veracity of the post's exerts from Brennan's message. Trump is now the president elect, has repeatedly dismissed the accusations that the Kremlin illegally inserted itself into the U.S electoral process. Unlike his promised crimes yet to come, the illegal acts in Trump’s high pressure wealth seminars have already occurred. Indeed, a federal judge appointed under Article III of the U.S. Constitution has already determined that Trump’s alleged actions, if true, constitute fraud and racketeering,” Congress is breaking the law. Congress is destroying our Constitution If they do nothing about this! It is our right as US citizens!!!

As the Federal Government and DEA cracks down on prescription drug dispensing, the adverse effects have increased the use of heroin use and thus, increasing higher incidences of Hepatitis-c, AIDS, Crime, and Criminal Activity in all facets our livelihood. The age groups of addiction has scattered in both directions, currently it has trickled down too adolescence and gone up in some cases too great-grandparent ages. Its is no longer a "FAD" or a "TREND" in many circles it is becoming a "RITE of PASSAGE" and a way of life in others. WE are demanding that; 1) Assessment, treatment, triage, substance abuse teams be dispatched throughout the county communities. ; 2) That a temporary centrally located "medical" detox-facility and housing area be established too address our addicted citizens needs, with hopes that a permanent facility be established in the near future.
