Stand Up For The Uyghur Muslims In China
German I Turkish I French Right now, more than 3 MILLION Uyghur Muslims are put in concentration camps in Xinjiang, China. The government has been targeting Muslims through a campaign of torture, surveillance, no rights to practice their religion and brainwashing these Muslims to disown their religion to become "normal citizens". A genocide happening right now! Men are taken to concentration camps, children are send to orphanages and women are forcefully being married with other Chinese men. In the concentration camps they are forced to eat pork, drink alcohol, and denounce themselves as Muslims. Leaked documents show that detainees are forced to take pills and get injections, they are the human subject of medical experiments, organ harvesting and sterilization procedures. They must memorize propoganda songs and confess invented sins. 10-30% of the Uyghur Muslims are put in concentration camps. However those who are living outside the concentration camps are also in extremely bad conditions. Outside the camps a spyware app must be installed on their phone, so the government can monitor their activity, Muslim women cannot wear the hijab (scarf) unless she is over the age of 45, they are not allowed to speak any foreign language, there is no halal food, pork and alcohol MUST be in every household. and facial recognition can capture who is passing by a mosque and punish them for doing so. This has been going on since the spring of 2017, with a U.S. commission calling it "the largest mass incarceration of a minority population in the world today." NO ONE deserves to be persecuted due to their religious beliefs. Raise awareness by sharing this petition to stand up for the Uyghur Muslims in China of this immoral and inhumane persecution! I am Nawid, a muslim and student from The Netherlands. The stories I came across on social media about the Uyghur crisis moved me. As a human being with basic human rights I felt it was my duty to do something, so I used my meme page as a platform to raise awareness about this issue and created this petition. The petition, that was signed 150.000 times in 4 days by people all around the globe, proves that the power is still with the people and we can change the situation. But there is still so much left to do. Join me by signing this petition and using your voice against injustice.

Get Armon back on the mats
Armon Nettey transferred schools within the county (Sherwood to Springbrook) in order to help his family, since his mother, a single mother, began working additional hours. Armon was granted a Change of School Assignment (COSA) from Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) to Springbrook on the grounds of hardship and begun picking his little brother up at a daycare near Springbrook after school in the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year. He was a part of the wrestling team at Sherwood and wished to wrestle at Springbrook. Due to a rule that Montgomery county has that requires transfer students to have a waiver to participate in athletic activities before a one-year waiting period, his mom applied for the waiver, since he was on a COSA. Although his family was approved for the COSA based on hardship, Dr. Jeffery Sullivan denied it, without giving reason to his family. Therefore, despite the hardship, he cannot compete on Springbrook’s wrestling team. Despite the fact that Armon has moved into the Springbrook district he is still being denied the opportunity to wrestle. The denial is coming from MCPS Administrators. Armon is a 17 year old senior who was recognized as a promising recruit and gaining the interest of division two and three schools however time is winding down for his season which is hurting his chances of receiving an athletic scholarship. The athletic director of Montgomery County, Jeffery Sullivan has denied this request for a waiver and many other officials have not stated why. Wrestling is an extremely important aspect of Armon’s life as far as opportunities for scholarships, wrestling has given him a community. Montgomery County staff and students, please sign this petition to show your support for Armon so that he may get back on the mats.
Petition to Idaho Falls City Council
The waiting list for the IF women's shelter is currently four months. This is unacceptable
A few days ago a friend of mine reached out to me. She said that she is in an abusive relationship and has no place to go. I asked her to contact the Idaho Falls Haven, she said that she was currently on the waiting list. Today 01/24/2020 I contacted the Haven. I was informed the current waiting list is four (4) months. I find this unacceptable, I believe as a community we have a responsibility to find realistic solutions to this issue. Four (4) months is far too long to be left without options! We must act now. We must offer a safe place for our neighbors, and family members experiencing homelessness, or abuse. Upon contacting city council member John Radford, I was informed that Idaho falls currently receives no public funding to help our neighbors experiencing homelessness. Homelessness is not a crime! As a community, i believe we can find realistic solutions to these issues. I believe we can find funding public or private, but first we must raise awareness! So please, brothers and sisters of this community, stand with me to fight Homelessness, and domestic violence! Goals- *Raise awareness on homelessness in Idaho Falls. *Raise awareness on domestic violence in Idaho Falls *Communicate with city and state governments to seek assistance and funding for shelter *Make a realistic impact
Petition to Donald J. Trump
Release aid to Puerto Rico
Since early January, Puerto Rico has suffered multiple powerful earthquakes, destroying thousands of homes, hospitals, and schools. These shocks ripped through an island still crippled by one of the most powerful hurricanes the region has ever seen, Hurricane Maria. Imagine an already bruised infrastructure still recovering and now feeling the weight of another natural disaster. Puerto Ricans desperately need our help – yet President Trump is blocking aid to the island. This money has been approved by Congress, but the Trump administration is withholding it due to “financial mismanagement” – even though there is nothing to suggest that Puerto Rico cannot manage the funds. People are sleeping on the streets, and living without running water or electricity due to Trump’s blatant disdain for their suffering. Puerto Ricans are American citizens and have a legal right to this aid money. But more importantly, we are humans and this behavior is typical of a president who would rather play politics with people’s lives than help them. Every second that goes by puts more Puerto Ricans at risk. Hospitals don’t have the power or water they need to treat patients, schools are unsafe for students to enter. Families want to return to their homes. President Trump: release the aid. Help Puerto Rico get back on its feet.

Stop Honors Chemistry From Killing Students
Honors Chemistry actually makes my student life horrible and makes me and other students hate going to school. I understand that it is required I take chemistry to graduate and I’m okay with that, I simply just want to be moved down to a class that is more at my level. The school claims they want to put students in the best position to succeed but this is obviously false. I don’t understand why the school forces me to be in this honors class where I am clearly learning nothing. It’s not even the teachers fault, he is a great guy who knows what he’s doing, I just simply don’t understand and can’t do it. All this class is doing is teaching me is to never to take any sort of challenge ever again. The schools “excuse” is that I don’t try and don’t want to put in the work, yet I’m an A and B student with a D in chemistry. Obviously there is an issue here. They’re so quick to move someone up to honors because it’s “better” for them but the second someone is struggling and needs help; the student is considered lazy and it’s their fault.

Petition to allow the Wheaton North student section freedom to respectfully speak freely
After the first half of our basketball season, our principal sat down with student section leaders stating that he was too restrict our section from making any comments at the other team, their players, the refs, and even opposing sections; regardless of what the chants were. This came after our section used minor chirps, such as shouting “sucks” after each opposing players introduction. Our principal threatened that if any words were heard aimed towards any body else besides positive reinforcement for our own team, entire rows would be removed from the section and forced to leave. In addition to being removed from that event, that row would also be barred from attending any other school events for this winter season. Now students are weary to attend events in fear of banishment from all future events (including prom), and all students have no fun at the games as they cannot respectfully yell disrespectful things, and the basketball players and coaches have complained that the lack of energy the section provides for the players, which cannot be improved until we are allowed to speak freely.
Petition to Stephen Marshall
Encourage Stephen Marshall's Beautiful Mustache
Stephen Marshall has greatly changed my life with his #LakeIsBeautiful and I have never been happier in life. He is a tremendous human being, and so kind to others. However in recent weeks, he has received COUNTLESS hate mail and profane messages on social media regarding his beautiful, jaw-dropping mustache. This type of bigotry coming from David Allen Pledger, a man who can't even bench 225, seems to stem from his lack of a sexy mustache. We are asking for 100 votes to stop this hate
