Petition to President Gianni Infantino
Support Iranian Women to Watch Sports in Stadiums (#NoBan4Women)
UPDATE: Iranian women were allowed into Azadi stadium on October 10 - but we expect stadiums to open completely and permanently. We continue to advocate for Iranian women to be allowed into league matches where most incidents of physical and verbal abuse, detention and arrests occur. We look to FIFA for the full stop to gender discrimination in sport. UPDATE: FIFA President Infantino answered our petition and gave the Iran Football Federation an ultimatum to stop the ban in time for the October 10 qualifier match. We urgently need your help to sign and share this petition to let FIFA and Iran know that the world is watching and expecting an end to this gender discrimination! === I grew up loving the game of football. As often as possible, I’d watch the matches on television with family and friends, cheering on our favorite teams and players. But as a woman in Iran, I’ve never seen a single game played in my home country. Iran's largest stadium is named Azadi - which means "freedom" - and it seats 100,000 sports fans. However, not one of those seats is currently designated for Iranian women to freely enjoy sports. Please sign my petition demanding FIFA use its power to call for an end to Iran’s stadium ban for women. Help me raise 100,000 signatures to represent the 100,000 seats of Azadi Stadium. UPDATE: We have surpassed 300,000! Help us reach 500,000!! Women are passionate sports fans just like men, and deserve to cheer on their teams in the stadiums. The fact that this discriminatory ban has existed for 39 years is appalling, and an assault on our right to free assembly. But the good news is that it’s not actually written into our law, and can easily be overturned – if we apply enough pressure on the right people. Iran is the only country playing in the 2018 World Cup which bans women from stadiums, a direct violation of FIFA’s gender discrimination statute and their new human rights policy. Yet FIFA president Gianni Infantino has shown no sign of doing anything about it – in fact, he was recently photographed posing with Iranian president Rouhani the day after 35 women were arrested for attempting to attend a football game. Sign my petition to demand that Mr. Infantino use his power to get Iran to end the stadium ban for women. Support #NoBan4Women. Thank you! من از طرفداران فوتبال هستم، اما همیشه مسابقات رو فقط از توی تلویزیون دیدم و بخاطر دختر بودنم هیچوقت این شانسرو نداشتم که بازی تیم مورد علاقهام رو در کشورم از نزدیک تماشا کنملطفا این طومار رو که برای پایان دادن به منع حضور زنان ایرانی به ورزشگاهها به فیفا نوشته شده امضا کنید بسیاری از خانمها هم مثل اکثر آقایان طرفدار فوتبال هستند و این حق رو دارند که مسابقات مورد علاقه شون رو از نزدیکتماشا کنند. این مانعی که سالها وجود داره توهینی به همه ما زنان ایرانی است. خوشبختانه منع قانونی در این مورد وجودندارد، بنابراین، تغییر این شرط ممکن استایران تنها کشوری است که این اجازه را به زنان نمیدهد که این بر خلاف قوانین فدراسیون جهانی فوتبال است چرا کهتبعیض جنسیتی محسوب میشود. با این حال تا کنون هیچ انتقادی از طرف فیفا مطرح نشده است. اگر همه ما خواسته خودمان را مطرح کنیم، فیفا قادر به نادیده گرفتن این وضعیت نخواهد بود فیفا یک مجمع بین المللی است و عده زیادی از زنان در این مجمع حضور دارند که به افکار عمومی اهمیت میدهند لطفا برای درخواست از فیفا جهت پایان دادن به منع حضور زنان به ورزشگاهها این طومار رو امضا کنید Petitioner: My Fundamental Right | Supported by: Equality League
Petition to U.S. Senate, Food and Drug Administration, Donald J. Trump
Ramen Noodle Should Not Be So Expensive
I love ramen. You love ramen. We all love ramen noodles! We love the ramen from a 99¢ package, we love takeout ramen and we love to eat ramen in a proper atmosphere complimented by saki or an ice cold Sapporo/ Kirin beer. What we don’t love? Overpaying for ramen. In Japan, ramen starts at about $2 USD. In California, ramen is typically sold for $8 on average. Both are reasonably priced and you’ll more than likely have left overs. But, once you arrive on the east coast and try to find an establishment that’ll make your tastebuds say “ありがとうございました” (thank you), you’ll quickly come to realize that ramen cost an unjustifiable $15-$20. This is inexcusable. I consider ramen noodle to be a basic human right. A fundamental right that keeps college students from starving, cures hangovers, gives the exhausted professional a quick, easy yet delicious dinner without having to clean up and promotes the uncultured American to step outside of his/her/their usual steak and potatoes diet. I do not want to live in a world that is not influenced by Japanese culture or traditions. This petition is to make a traditional bowl ramen noodle over the price of $8 illegal. This is fair and this is long overdue.
Petition to New Jersey State House
Decriminalize Entheogenic Medicine In New Jersey
Our mission is to provide a platform for community dialogue and organization by expanding access to education regarding the medicinal, therapeutic, and cultural properties of these plant medicines. We envision a society in which humans are happier and healthier with a stronger relationship to nature, to society, to our communities, and to ourselves. Purpose Statement: To decriminalize and de-stigmatize entheogenic plants within our society; re-establish our connection with nature; and improve the well-being of individuals, families, and communities. Entheogens are a class of naturally occurring psychoactive substances that are used in religious, shamanic, and spiritual contexts that produce non-ordinary states of consciousness, psychological, and sometimes physiological changes. These substances have been shown to aid in substance abuse, addiction, trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety, depression, end-of-life anxiety, cluster headaches, and various other conditions that plague our community. We are asking for your support by signing this petition, as New Jersey citizens we have the power to come together and get these laws changed!
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.
Petition to Students of SUNY Geneneseo
Students should be offered some type of refund due to no heat, electric or warm water.
Students of Geneseo campus are already struggling with their academics by not having a library due to asbestos, and now residence halls have no power, heat or warm water. Students have minimal places to study and the areas that are open are becoming over populated. Students in dorms are having trouble sleeping because they are so cold, their phones and laptops are dead because they cannot charge them (which can also cause students to not have an alarm in the morning for class as well as completing online assignments), and they are unable to shower because the dorms do not have hot water. The power has been out for about 17 hours and there are still no signs of when it will be back on. The students of Geneseo deserve better.

Wrongful conviction in state of Texas, due to evidence withheld !
My name is Robin Schoffner and I am writing on behalf of a dear friend of mine who is and has been held in the DOC in Texas, state prison system. Petition for Relief; To the 338th District Court of Harris County Texas. And to its honorable Judge. Chris Daniel, Harris County District Clerk, Judge of 338th District Court P.O. Box 4651, Houston, TX 77210-4651 Evidence has been obtained by Attorney Mackenzie Schaffer from an Open Records Request of the Prosecutor's file, that the district Attorney's office who prosecuted DeCarlos Garrett in cause no. 870048 and cause no. 886344, withheld several items of evidence that show he is actually INNOCENT. Among this evidence is a video tape of the crime that the State claimed DID NOT EXIST. And because this video tape has been recovered and litigated by Mr. Garrett in his recent filing before this court, this Petition would respectfully request that an Evidentiary hearing be held. The purpose of this Hearing is to point out that the prosecution made an intentional decision to withhold this video tape and other evidence from the defense. And since Mr. Garrett has no legal representative to ensure that his rights aren't continued to be ignored, we hope that this petition will speak on his behalf. As he also has no funds to acquire an attorney. A hearing at this point is the least that should be done to correct this intentional act of misconduct by the prosecution. Respectively submitted Robin Schoffner, 5121 state route 227, Burdett, NY 14818 DeCarlos Garrett Michael Unit, 2664 FM 2054, Tennessee Colony, TX 75886 or he can be reached via Jpay but he must write you back in regular mail. Please if you can help, contact either of us. This is a desperate search for help and relief in a wrongful conviction we have been working together to get the facts and truth out. And now with the video tape they say DID NOT EXIST in our hands. He is searching, desperately for help, assistance of any kind is greatly appreciated.

Get Vanguard demoted
Honestly I respect you both a ton, but something HAS to be done about this. This man has abused his powers for the last time. I believe I speak for the entire staff when I say we don't want to work with this man. He has broken the rules and done a terrible job as a moderator.
Petition to Marion High School Adminstration/ Central Office
Dress Code Change: Leggings for girls, athletic shorts for boys
As we all know, the high school has enforced dress code and is sending girls home every single day for leggings. We miss class and it effects our education just because we have to go home and change. Although I think there should be rules, a shirt approaching the knee is ridiculous. I do think it should at least cover the bum. As for boys, athletic shorts should be allowed. As a female, it it not distracting to me at all for them to wear athletic shorts. I think they should be comfortable when learning, as for girls.
