Insurance equity for parents who can't breastfeed due to breast and gynecologic cancer
Did you know that new parents impacted by breast and gynecologic cancer treatment—either as survivors or previvors—get a free breast pump and lactation support through the Affordable Care Act, but have no coverage for donated breast milk or formula? It’s a major policy gap, and we think we can close it with your support. Currently, insurance coverage of infant formula or donor milk is only considered if the baby has a medical condition. However, there are other cases in which the parent physically cannot breastfeed due to a mastectomy or other treatments that impact the ability to feed, making the medical necessity for formula or donor milk still exist. Insurance coverage of breast pumps and lactation support when an individual has had their breasts removed is not helpful or supportive—and simply does not make sense. Infants of these individuals require infant formula or donor breast milk for survival. We want legislation changed to create inclusive insurance coverage of formula or donor milk for all moms who have undergone a mastectomy or cannot feed due to breast cancer or gynecologic cancer. This campaign is supported by Bobbie for Change, the social impact and policy arm of Bobbie, the only female-founded and mom-led infant formula company in the U.S., and the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, The Breasties, as we strive to support parents in all of their feeding journeys. By signing this petition, you are pushing for this policy change and collectively showing the power of our united voices. Have more to share or say? Reach out to email@example.com.
Petition to Center for Disease Control, American Heart Association
Condemn the New CDC and AHA Guidelines for Healthcare Workers
We, the healthcare workers of the United States, firmly stand in opposition against the newly released Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and American Heart Association guidelines that fail to value the inherent dignity of our bodies. These policies shorten our quarantine periods, allow us to return to work with COVID-19, and recommend we not delay cardiopulmonary resuscitation of patients with COVID in order to don PPE. These policies treat healthcare workers as collateral damage for governmental and hospital failures that have exacerbated the severity of this pandemic; policies that have devastated our healthcare system and the workers who comprise it. We have given our very best in order to meet the needs of our communities as COVID-19 has swept through them. We have seen more and given more than we ever should have been asked to see and give. We call on the CDC and AHA to adjust these guideline updates in order to accurately reflect the immutable dignity of healthcare workers. Our health and safety matter. We will not jeopardize the health of our families, our patients, our coworkers, and ourselves in order to do our jobs. It is completely devoid of morality to ask us to do so. We recognize and honor our fallen sister, Celia Marcos, RN, who died of COVID-19 after rushing into a patient's room to perform CPR without donning PPE. She died fighting this terrible virus and attempting to save the life of a patient. The new AHA guidelines do not appropriately reflect the sacrifice and heroism of Nurse Marcos and ask the rest of us to do the same. May Celia rest in peace, and may we all remember her as we fight to protect healthcare workers everywhere. To the CDC and AHA, the world is watching. We are watching.
Help Close the Diaper Divide by Expanding Insurance Coverage for Incontinence Products
“Some nights, I had to put a sock in [our daughter’s] pants to help with incontinence until the next day when we could get money.” Unfortunately, stories like these are all too common among those living with bladder and bowel control issues because they cannot afford the protective products required to stay comfortable and healthy. 1 in 3 families in the US currently live in diaper need, and the number of people living without adequate incontinence products, like protective underwear, diapers, and bladder control pads, extends much further. The Diaper Divide affects not only infants and parents but also extends to children above the typical potty training age, individuals with disabilities, and adults and seniors with incontinence. Without supplies, these individuals face incredible challenges in every area of their lives. This is what’s known as the Diaper Divide. According to a survey conducted by Aeroflow Urology, over 70% of respondents with incontinence or caring for someone with the condition, revealed that they cannot afford to purchase incontinence supplies. “I struggled to figure out financially how I was going to be able to pay for my incontinence products, as I'm a senior citizen on government assistance.” The consequences of the Diaper Divide are dire. Individuals who lack access to incontinence supplies are forced to sacrifice their dignity, mental and physical health, and their quality of life. Two in five respondents of the Aeroflow Urology study said they experienced complicated medical issues due to a lack of access to products, such as infections and worsened incontinence symptoms. Moreover, those in the Diaper Divide are burdened with impossible financial choices, having to prioritize incontinence products over groceries, rent, and other necessities. “Money was so tight we had to discuss whether or not we'd skip meals or diapers. We chose meals.” This crisis must be addressed urgently. We cannot stand by as individuals and families struggle to meet their basic needs. These supplies are essentials, like clean water and housing. Because of this, we believe that incontinence products should be classified as medically necessary items under insurance plans nationwide. This would ensure that individuals of all ages and abilities have access to the supplies they require. Government officials and insurance providers have the power to make this change, and we call upon them to take immediate action. We urge you to help us bring an end to incontinence product need by signing this petition, which seeks to raise awareness and advocate for classifying incontinence products as medically necessary for people of all ages and abilities. By signing this petition, you are immediately making a difference in the lives of others. We thank you in advance for your support. Let’s close the Diaper Divide!

Petition to Kate Brown
Allow Oregon health care workers the right to choose what goes in their bodies
Just a week ago, health care workers were given the option to test weekly or get vaccinated. On Thursday, August 19th that all changed when Governor Brown mandated vaccines for health care workers. Health care workers must now be fully vaccinated by October 18th or lose their jobs. Also, unemployment claims for vaccine related lay offs are still up in the air. These health care workers have been saving lives and now the governor is threatening to take away their livelihood. If this isn’t coercion, then what is? Health care workers have been working tirelessly since the beginning of the pandemic. While many workers chose to get the vaccine, there are still those who have decided against it for whatever personal reason. According to data updated by the Oregon Health Authority on July 3, 2021 just 57% of Oregon’s certified nursing assistants are vaccinated; 60% of licensed professional nurses are vaccinated; and only 56% of advanced emergency medical technicians have received a shot. It's time that we support our health care workers like they have supported us. Sign the petition and tell Governor Brown that our health care workers deserve the right to choose what goes in their bodies without being coerced.

I have no HIV Care Doctor and no functional interface to social services as a person living with HIV/AIDS that hate is being held against me and others in the HIV Communities as a policy administration with a hate bias internal of the HHS / CDC / Ryan White Care Act Funded Services and Doctor Provider Care.

A secret agenda observed for a long term period conspiracy that the Trump policy change doubles down on that belief of faith. This enforces a very harmful policy rule that persons living with HIV deserve to die by preventable HIV Death by intentionally obstructing life wellness outcomes, ensuing chaos harassment and intentional forced direction persecutions into insurmountable walls of oppression [ obviously defined ] by a cause of intent by persons in the system to sentence members they dislike within the HIV communities nationally region to region to perpetual states of homelessness living with HIV/AIDS disease in the United States of America. As a systemic problem SHOUTS a message from the system as an interfering hate paradigm against community members and the entire HIV community as: "Go *uck Off And Die!" ------- Over the past several months, I have attempted to have my correspondence with the acting CDC HIV Director Doctor Jonathan Mermin acknowledged and responded on. I am desiring an official authority of an agency to respond a response of responsibility. At first, the introduction was on Twitter and he immediately acted to violate my citizen's rights by blocking my account on twitter. The concerns that I am needing to discuss is how the I personally have lived through two regional attacks of hate, harassment, and retaliation campaigns targeted against me to remove me and my HIV Housing residency from these communities. In the most recent case from the regional service area of Denver Colorado, it would become apparent after my defeat of my eviction case that right before I left the Denver area for my hometown of San Bernardino I named Jamie Villalobos regional director of the Colorado Health Network the puppeteer of this hate campaign targeted against me. That reflection of mine was made in a facebook live video recorded a couple of days before I left town. It would not become self-evident who is responsible and should be held accountable until the first reports two weeks after I left town. This by negative outlook employee Glassdoor reviews for Colorado Health Network. This was in July of 2017. Reports reflect, "Dishonest Business Practices, To Stay Away. They Violate The Privacy of Clients, one report noted that "If you don't gossip like a teenager, you will be an outsider" and another report says they had a big investigation of racism and discrimination. Two employees quit. The investigation was reported as inconclusive. The author of that last mention has this to say in conclusion: Q: "How can an organization thrive when a top official is racist? If you are a woman or person of color, it is very hard to move up in the org and be heard. If you are a cute, white male, you will do well in this company" A: The reason is that there is a hate conspiracy here affecting motives of unprofessional actions, interferences, and retaliation against dissenters, and protection for wrongdoing that soars all of the way up the chain to the CDC HIV Director as my attempts to uproot this at every single level - attempted --- to get a response to conduct an accepted complaint to be processed and acted on. So far that has not yet occurred. At the time of the Colorado Health Network investigation report, that may have been found inconclusive. But looking at it from a fully vetted and documented perspective from this time 2019 looking at the entire umbrella of hate protecting this system by inputting and taking into account the collective reporting of similarly structured and worded Glassdoor negative outlook employee reviews of this dysfunctional foundational set forth within --- a corrosive of trust --- in the Ryan White Care Act funded social service agencies region to region, that this hate conspiracy is top rooted founded in the CDC administration of the HIV Treatment and Prevention program as a federal program of government-sponsored hate. As the entire system is protecting the haters and that the haters have been allowed to win, there is no accountability for when the directors and leaders of the agencies themselves injure the community to which they are supposed to be serving. In the case of Colorado Health Network, no one has been taken aside and reprimanded. The person must be held accountable for these concerns is CDC HIV Director Doctor Jonathan Harry Mermin.

Why the Board does not see where the problem lies is beyond me which makes me look at the Board as well. ----- Disappointment and Mendacity [ Cascade Aids Project ] Cons Management is hostile to the union represented staff. The organization only works with a narrow part of the community yet markets something different to look more comprehensive than it is. Much of upper management is threatened by change, is conflict avoidant to the point of dysfunction and is retaliatory when confronted. Often, people with poor skills are promoted to leadership and this creates frustration and a sense of unfairness highlighting backroom agreements meant to undermine. Morale is dreadful. In the past few years most staff have been fired, pressured to leave, or asked to work with compromised ethics. Gay, black, HIV+, and trans identified staff have been systematically marginalized. CAP treated HIV+ staff as second class citizens, ignored client request for change, and silences critics. If you go against CAP, even if justified, you will find it hard to work in the HIV community in Portland. The board is completely distant from the staff and the clients being served, and act condescending and unhelpful. You would think if 50% of the staff leave in a few months time, it might be a wake up call that there are big problems that can't be dismissed as "disgruntled" staff. Since CAP is the only game in town for HIV related needs, they have no checks and balances and no accountability when they injure the community they are claiming they serve. ----- Google Review for my hometown Ryan White Care Act funded Agency of Foothill Aids Project in San Bernardino.

Foothill Aids Project670 N Arrowhead Ave Suite A-B, San Bernardino, CA Aaron JacobsonLocal Guide · 1 reviewa year agoThis agency is FRAUDULANT in its services and practices when it comes to serving the HIV population and utilizing Ryan White Funding.

Make a stand for our caregivers and our elders
My wife's personal journey as a caregiver began with her grandmother. She has dedicated her entire life to this field, cherishing every patient she had the privilege to care for. However, recently, she was unjustly fired from her job at a senior living facility due to injury that and being on light duty. This incident has shed light on the harsh realities of our profession - poor management practices, favoritism, and an overall lack of focus on what truly matters: the well-being of our seniors. Our elders have paved the way for future generations to be better and do better to be better people.It is disheartening that only a few people are genuinely committed to caring for patients in these facilities. Instead of prioritizing their needs and welfare, some managers are more interested in forming cliques or "posses," creating an unhealthy work environment that ultimately affects the quality of care provided.According to the Paraprofessional Healthcare Institute (PHI), nearly 5 million caregivers across America face similar challenges daily - low wages, inadequate training opportunities, lack of support from management - leading to high turnover rates (PHI National Caregiver Survey). This not only impacts caregivers' lives but also disrupts continuity in care for seniors who need stability.We demand better working conditions for caregivers and stricter adherence to standards that prioritize eldercare over politics within senior living facilities. We urge policy makers and relevant authorities to review current regulations governing these institutions with a view towards making necessary improvements.Please sign this petition if you believe in dignified caregiving as much as we do; let's ensure our elders receive the love and attention they deserve while providing caregivers with a supportive work environment they need.
Support Quantum Real Estate Group's Grant for Affordable Housing in Parksley, VA
As a Community Member of Accomack County, and a strong believer in the rights of our veterans, I am personally invested in the development of affordable housing and wellness centers. Our veterans have protected our freedoms and ask for little in return - it is only right that we ensure they have access to affordable housing and necessary services.Quantum Real Estate Group (QREG) has applied for a grant to transform an old factory building into not just affordable housing but also an Activities Center, Grocery Center, and healthcare/wellness centers. This project will greatly benefit our community by providing much-needed resources while revitalizing unused space.In Virginia alone, there are over 21,000 homeless individuals with nearly 12% being veterans (U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development). QREG's project can help reduce this number significantly in Parksley. We urge Governor Youngkin's Office and The Secretary of HUD office to approve this grant application. Your support can make a significant difference to the lives of many people including those who've served us unselfishly.Please sign this petition to show your support for QREG's initiative towards creating affordable housing options along with essential services within reach.

Resist & Rise: Empowering Individuals Against the Establishment and Institutions
wake up america link https://www.tiktok.com/t/ZT8fu8jd8/ Spread the word! Schools and in person workplaces withholding info on indoor temperature, humidity, CO2 and VOC levels may jeopardize our well-being and increase inflation. Let's unite for health and freedom from rising inflation ! People, both adults and children, don't just endure inconveniences; they grapple with the harsh consequences of unregulated indoor air quality. It forces them into a heartbreaking cycle—reaching for inhalers, nebulizers, seeking urgent medical help—due to the pervasive impact on health. The stakes are high, hinging on the choice between change and status quo. If addressed adequately, there is a potential for improved health outcomes and a safer indoor environment. Conversely, maintaining the current situation jeopardizes the well-being of countless individuals, perpetuating a cycle of health crises and institutional exploitation that targets both adults and children in educational and workplace settings. The urgency for action is unmistakable. With the root cause of the escalating health and energy crisis overlooked by government and media, the time to rectify this critical oversight is now. Immediate action is paramount to prevent further exacerbation of the situation. Enhancing indoor environment education and advocating for clear standards is a timely and imperative step. The well-being of individuals and the overall health of our communities hinge on the choices we make today. If two patients, one poor and one wealthy, have the same lung disease could differential access to quality health care determine which one lives and which one dies?
