Petition to Coca-Cola, Indiana Governor
Shut down the abuse and animal cruelty to cows by Fair Oaks Farm.
On June 4, 2019, a video was released exposing Fair Oaks Farm, in Indiana, for their animal abuse and cruelty. The video showed calfs being separated from their mothers, being thrown into trucks, being stepped on, being hit, and other forms of cruelty. The lack of respect show to these animals is unacceptable. Everyone sees Fair Oaks as a family friendly place to be. It is an animal killing place for profit by big corporations. I urge Coca Cola to stop funding this place. Fair Oaks kills cows everyday. They show the proper way to milk a cow everyday in the showrooms. However, they fail to show the extreme abuse from the handlers to the cows. The lack of dignity from these employees is unacceptable. This is not just one or two bad workers, it’s all of the cow handlers. Coca Cola has the power to shut down this operation. I urge you to sign this petition to stop this abuse and give these innocent animals liberation.��✨
Petition to Whole Foods, City of McAllen, City of Pharr, County of Hidalgo
Bring Whole Foods to McAllen Texas
The Metropolitan area of McAllen Texas has grown over the years and is now the 22nd largest city in Texas. McAllen attracts people from all over the valley from South Padre Island, Brownsville, and Harlingen; just to name a few. As more and more citizens extent their knowledge and further their education on nutrition and health, they understand the importance of fueling their body with proper substance. With that said, what better store to supply the citizens of McAllen than a Whole Foods.
Petition to Mexican-Inspired Eateries Everywhere
#FreeTheGuac: Stop Charging Extra For Guacamole
At QDOBA, we've learned two important things: people love adding guac to their meals, and people hate paying extra for it. Adding guac to your meal should be free for everyone, everywhere. It’s that simple. Why should a customer be penalized for making a meal more flavorful? It may make dollars for our competitors, but it makes no sense to us. We're proud to announce that our guac is free. But we don't think it should stop there. Because we won't be satisfied until extra guacamole is free of charge for people everywhere. So today, we're calling on all of our Mexican eats competitors - you know who you are - to come together, just this once, around a common goal: to make guacamole free of charge, not just for one day, but everyday. Because if there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that paying extra for guac is the pits. Join us, and sign our petition to free the guac for all! Share it far and wide on social media and ensure that flavor lovers everywhere #FreeTheGuac.

Tell Aldi to Go 100% Gestation Crate Free
Many of us are loyal Aldi shoppers who appreciate the grocery chain’s quality, low-priced foods, commitment to sustainability, and desire to serve its customers in meaningful ways. That’s why it is especially disheartening to learn that unlike almost every other major grocer in the U.S., Aldi still has not committed to stopping its pork suppliers from locking up mother pigs in tiny “gestation crates” for virtually their entire life. Please sign our petition. Urge Aldi to take the responsible road like so many other retailers and commit to a 100% gestation crate free supply chain by 2022. Gestation crates are widely recognized as cruel and inhumane. They confine a mother pig throughout her 4-month pregnancy in a space so tiny it’s roughly the same size as her body, so narrow she can’t even turn around. The mother pig is subsequently transferred into another crate to give birth, re-impregnated, and then put back into a gestation crate. This inhumane cycle repeats, pregnancy after pregnancy, for virtually their entire lives, adding up to years of immobilization. Almost every leading company in the food industry has listened to public opinion by adopting a policy to phase-out purchasing from operators using gestation crates —from restaurants like McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy’s, Cracker Barrel, and Quiznos to other cost-conscious retailers such as Costco, Trader Joe’s, Kroger, and Walmart. As one of the largest grocers in the U.S., it is time for Aldi to do the same and acknowledge that animals ought to be allowed to move. Aldi says it cares about what its customers want. Please sign and share this petition and let Aldi know that you care about the animal welfare practices of their pork suppliers. Ask them to commit to phasing out the use of gestation crates for a mother pig’s entire pregnancy from its supply chain within a specified timeframe.
Petition to Western Carolina University Students
Save the UC Food Court!
The UC Food Court was closed after the 2017-2018 school year. Within the UC Food Court, there was a pizza by the slice Papa Johns, grab & go Chick-fi-la, Sushi, yogurt station, drink machines, and a POD store. This area was always full of students studying, eating a quick lunch, grabbing food quickly, and to their classes. Typically, the students could grab their food and be out within five minutes. This was great for the students that had classes in Coulter, Killian, Forsyth, and McKee because it was close to their class, and it was quick. Now students have to wait in long lines, especially in the morning, to get something to eat. In the mornings, there are not places that you can just grab and go. For breakfast, students have to wait in long lines at Starbucks or Chick-fi-la, hoping that they are not late to their class. Typically, these lines will last 15-30 minutes, and it would take more time to get your food. For lunch and dinner, if you are lucky, you will wait in line for 30 minutes at Moes or Panda Express. Lately, the line for Moes and Panda has been all the way to Which Wich or longer. Which Wich has so many sandwiches to make that it will take a long time before they have yours ready. Therefore, there is no way to just grab food and hurry off to class. There is only waiting for 15 to 30 minutes (minimum), and then waiting for your food for an equal amount of time, if not more. All of this is because the school decided to close it down, and are planning to turn it into offices for Student Government, Last Minute Productions, and Campus Activities. These groups already have nice offices on the third floor of the UC. They do not have plans to do anything with the offices that they have now. Therefore, there will still be empty, unused space in the UC. If Western thought about their students, they would actually make that space into something for the students, not for themselves. If anything, they could re-open that space as a study area for students. However, if they had more restaurants on campus, the lines would be shorter because the students eating would be spread out amongst Courtyard, Brown, and UC. Thus, if you sign this petition that means that you are for shorter lines, quicker and more food, and happier students.
Petition to Rosa's Tortilla Factory
Add quesadillas to the Rosa's menu
I went to Rosa's the other day and was taken back by the lack of quesadillas on their menu. I was shocked. Not only are they a Mexican restaurant, but they're also a tortilla factory! Shouldn't they be able to make quesadillas?
