Petition to Mayor Marty Walsh, Boston Landmarks Commission, BPDA
They are deliberately ruining Roxbury's landmark!
Developers want to destroy Roxbury's history. They want to build a giant building next door to the Joseph Warren House, which has National Importance. They want to destroy that legacy in Roxbury and erect a building that will overshadow it and ruin its sanctity. This house is Roxbury's national treasure. It deserves to be a national monument. Do you want it to be boxed in by a monument to gentrification? Joseph Warren near single-handedly started the American Revolution. He wrote the first draft of what would become the Declaration of Independence. He would have been the first President of the USA had he not died leading the battle of Bunker Hill. Roxbury deserves the same respect for its monuments as Beacon Hill. Do you want developers to get away with this just to make their profits and displace us? What YOU can do is sign this petition! Show your opposition to this new development, and add your support to taking back our neighborhood from greed and developers!

Open Rockhaven to the Public
We the undersigned respectfully ask the City of Glendale to finally find a way to open the Rockhaven Historic Property (2713 Honolulu Ave, Montrose, CA) to the public. If they will not use all the funding at their disposal they should allow a private party to create it, or work with the state to create a State Historic Park. We DO NOT want public park property to be allowed to become something that would take it away from public access (ie: a hotel, medical center or housing). Sanitariums were a significant part of the history of Glendale and this particular institution, run by an Armenian company for its last few years, adds a historic tie to the mixed ethnicity of Glendale. For nearly 80 years, Rockhaven was a sanitarium operated by women, for women. For the last ten years it has been operated by the parks department, advertising the beautiful historic buildings. It is time to finally create the public space it was bought to be.

Save Timeless from Cancellation!
From the Salem Witch Trials to the Alamo, Timeless is a time-traveling television show filled with history, romance, and an evil cult. TImeless is also a show that is loved by all ages. The diversity that is so casually included in the show is what this world needs in a time of hate and segregation. In addition to the representation, it brings the never spoken about events in history into the living rooms of people everywhere and tells the stories in a way that gets people’s interest. In a time where history is becoming less and less appreciated, we NEED a way to get people's attention pulled back to it, so we are not doomed to repeat the atrocious events we have committed in the history of our world. With all that being said, ANY subscription service will earn a copious amount of loyal subscribers by picking up Timeless!

Save the Claude Moore Colonial Farm
The National Park Service has communicated its intent to close the Claude Moore Colonial Farm on Dec. 21, 2018. The Friends of Claude Moore Colonial Farm have launched a public campaign to keep this living history museum and National Park operating and open to the public. The Claude Moore Colonial Farm's mission is to educate the public about early American daily life and agriculture. The Farm authentically recreates how colonists lived and worked in late 18th century Virginia, right before the American Revolution. Since opening to the public in 1973 the Farm has welcomed more than 2 million visitors including families, school groups and others from across the country and internationally. The Claude Moore Colonial Farm is managed by the Friends of Claude Moore Colonial Farm, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation, under a cooperative agreement with the National Park Service. As a privately funded and operated National Park the Farm relies on memberships, program income, grants, donations and other means to sustain operations. Visit www.1771.org for more information. Please show your support of the Claude Moore Colonial Farm by signing this petition so that we may continue to provide a highly valuable educational resource to the community.
Petition to New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission, Corey Johnson, City Council Member Laurie Cumbo, Meenakshi Srinivasan
Protect Poet Walt Whitman's New York City Home
Walt Whitman, America's most famous poet, lived at 99 Ryerson Street in Brooklyn, New York when his world famous book Leaves of Grass was first published in 1855. While Whitman lived in over 30 places in what is today New York City during this lifetime, the house at 99 Ryerson Street is the ONLY ONE still standing. Accordingly, 99 Ryerson Street is of great cultural and historical significance. It tells not only the story of a key moment in American poetry and literature, but also the story of a towering figure in global culture. We are seeking official city landmark designation from New York City to protect the building from demolition, especially because development is encroaching on the neighborhood. While the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission initially rejected our request, the Commission is currently reviewing additional information and research that we provided on the significance of the site and Walt Whitman's association with the site. We need your help convincing the Commission to landmark this critically important building. The house at 99 Ryerson Street is one of only two buildings directly associated with Walt Whitman that are still standing in New York City. It would be an unforgivable tragedy to lose this crucially important building to history. Join us in protecting this important cultural resource for the benefit and enjoyment of future generations. Quotes from supporters: "To protect a house like this one, it seems to me, is a form of cultural stewardship.For this house to disappear would be something like an extinction: such a place cannot be got back, not ever, once it is lost." - George Saunders, author of Lincoln in the Bardo and winner of the 2017 Man Booker Prize “During my time as Poet Laureate of the United States, my travels in our country and abroad gave me a renewed sense of Walt Whitman’s ongoing, central importance. Poets writing in other languages, on every continent have looked to Whitman’s work for an epitome of what is most liberating in the culture of the United States. Please let me add my voice to those hoping that you will recognize his house in Brooklyn as a true landmark.” - Robert Pinsky, former U.S. Poet Laureate "I feel a particular relationship to Whitman and, maybe more to the point, a strong sense of just how much impact not only his work but his physical presence had on the New York City of his day. I do hope you’ll revisit the question of the house on Ryerson as a historic landmark." - Michael Cunningham, award winning author “2019 marks the bicentennial of Walt Whitman’s birth. We hope to celebrate Whitman’s groundbreaking contributions to literature by landmarking the site most associated with his seminal work by the time that key milestone arrives. I hope the Commission understands this is not about the architectural merit of 99 Ryerson Street but rather its incredibly significant cultural value.” - Professor Karen Karbiener, founder of the Walt Whitman Initiative “The city needs more landmarks like this one to help narrate the histories of LGBT Americans – and it needs to consider cultural landmarks seriously rather than aesthetic landmarks alone.” - Jay Shockley, co-founder of the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project “If Whitman’s Leaves of Grass gave birth to American poetry, then Brooklyn is thebirthplace of our art, and 99 Ryerson Street is the last remaining cradle. The Commission needs to reconsider its initial rejection.” - Jason Koo, executive director and founder of Brooklyn Poets
Petition to President of the United States
State Funeral for World War II Veterans
Our Mission: “To convince the President of the United States to designate a state funeral for the last Medal of Honor recipient from World War II, as a final salute to the 16 million men and women of the greatest generation who served in our armed forces from 1941 to 1945.” We are leading a nationwide petition drive to convince the President to designate a single state funeral for the final Medal of Honor recipient from World War II. This event will provide national recognition to honor all 16 million soldiers, sailors and airmen who defeated Imperialism, Fascism, and Nazism. The time has come for a final salute to the greatest generation. A state funeral would be the perfect vehicle to do so. General Douglas MacArthur, Supreme Allied Commander of the Pacific, and General Dwight Eisenhower, Supreme Allied Commander of Europe, were each duly honored by the nation with state funerals. The selfless, brave men and women who served under them deserve the honor of special recognition at the state funeral for the final Medal of Honor recipient from World War II.

Petition to President John Thrasher
Return the Eppes Statue at Florida Statue University
In a Mitch Landrieu-like move - Florida State University President, John Thrasher, dealt a death blow to the institution's history and culture when he ordered a bronze statue of the University's founder, Francis Eppes, removed from Wescott Plaza. The statue was hoisted up in the middle of the night and moved to an undisclosed location on Thursday July 19th. The "take him down" movement started in 2016 with a few militant noisy protesters who apparently didn't have anything better to do than dis the sacrifice of a man who made their educational opportunity possible. Despite a student vote that OVERWHELMINGLY favored keeping the Eppes statue in 2016, President Thrasher, a long time crony of JEB Bush, whose failed 'take it down policy' cost him the 2016 Republican Presidential nomination, used the Charlottesville media frenzy as cover to hand pick a take down panel reminiscent of Reconstruction. The sculpture was erected in 2002 as part of the University's 150 year observance by then President Sandy D'lemberte and is a favorite spot of students and campus visitors alike. Read more about FSU History and the Eppes Statue here. Alumni, boosters, students alike call on Thrasher to RESTORE THE HONOR - RETURN THE STATUE!
