Petition to Wendy's
Time's Up Wendy's: I support the Freedom Fast to end sexual violence in the fields
“We decided to demand the right as women to work free of sexual harassment and violence, and the right to protect our dignity.” — LUPE GONZALO, CIW MEMBER For generations, the women who harvest the fruits and vegetables that we put on our families’ tables have faced a daily barrage of sexual abuse in the fields: vulgar comments, groping, demands of sexual favors from supervisors, and, in the most extreme cases, rape. If a woman spoke up, she would be fired, while her abuser would be right back at work the next day. Today, under the groundbreaking protections of the Fair Food Program, the story has changed, and that change is spreading. Farmworker women and men organizing as the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) launched the Fair Food Program in 2011. The program has radically transformed working conditions for tens of thousands of agricultural laborers, eliminating longstanding human rights abuses from sexual assault to forced labor. In the words of Alejandrina Carrera, a worker at Pacific Tomato Growers, under the Fair Food Program, "You’re not going to be harassed, you’re not going to be insulted, you’re not going to be forced to work. There’s more respect now.” Another worker said simply, “Our dignity has been restored by this program.” Today, the Presidential Medal-winning Fair Food Program extends beyond Florida tomatoes to seven states and three crops. All the major fast-food companies – McDonald’s, Burger King, Subway, Taco Bell, KFC, and Chipotle – are fully on board, having signed binding Fair Food agreements. All except Wendy’s. Instead, in response to pressure to join the Fair Food Program, Wendy’s abandoned its longtime Florida tomato suppliers and shifted its purchases to Mexico, where sexual harassment and assault in the fields are endemic and go unchecked. There, farmworker women are intimidated into silence by a culture of fear, violence, and corruption. Rather than join the leading program for ending sexual violence, Wendy’s has chosen to profit from women’s pain, its brand protected by the women’s involuntary silence. Today we are breaking that silence. Farmworkers from Immokalee are launching the five-day Freedom Fast outside the Manhattan hedge fund offices of Nelson Peltz, Wendy’s largest shareholder and Chair of its Board of Directors. The Freedom Fast will then culminate with a massive Time's Up Wendy's March on March 15 in the heart of Manhattan. http://www.boycott-wendys.org/register-fast We're asking you to sign this petition and support the fasters demanding that Wendy’s join the Fair Food Program. Demand justice for farmworker women from Mr. Peltz, who has the power to end sexual violence against women in Wendy's supply chain and yet, does nothing. For market giants like Wendy’s, refusing to take meaningful action to end sexual violence in the supply chain — when a proven solution is right at their fingertips — is no longer an option. #TimesUpWendys
Petition to Senator Joeseph Scarnati
Senator Scarnati your prayers aren’t enough! Protect Pennsylvania children from sex abuse
We all know what happens when a child is sexually abused, right? They tell someone who believes them. That person calls the police. There is an investigation and a trial. It’s a long and stressful ordeal, but the bad guy goes to prison and the child experiences justice. Right? Unfortunately, that rarely happens. Researchers know survivors need, on average, 21 years to talk about their abuse. And most states, like Pennsylvania, have Statutes of Limitation (SOL) on the crime that keep most victims out of court and keep most abusers on the streets, around kids. It has to stop. And removing the SOL and allowing adult victims one year to seek convictions in civil court is a crucial first step. Please, sign this petition to tell our elected officials to end PA’s SOL for child sexual abuse and allow one year for retroactive justice.
Petition to Bill Haslam
Re-Trial for Cyntoia Brown
Cyntoia Brown was only 16 years old when she received a prison sentence of 51 years for first-degree murder. She murdered a man named Johnny Allen, who had been sexually abusing her. She was a victim of sex trafficking and was later sold to the man she had killed. She feared for her life and believed that he would kill her first, so she killed him before he could kill her. I pray that this petition helps Cyntoia get a re-trial, her case dismissed, or a shorter sentence with time served. Please sign this petition calling for a re-trial of her case. This is a very sad story, especially due to the fact that she was only a child when it happened. Going through the things she went through at such a young age is very traumatizing. Physically, mentally, and emotionally, no one can ever understand what that does to a child’s mindset. If she didn't build up the courage and take a risk to save herself, she would still be going through the same thing or sadly, dead. Our laws really need to change to stop letting people like Johnny get away with things like this. Cyntoia needed help after what she went through, not her life taken away from her once again. Sign this petition calling for her re-trial! #JusticeForCyntoiaBrown
Petition to President of the United States, Pardon Attorney, Department of Justice
Justice for Cyntoia Brown
https://instagram.com/p/Bbvgf5AlSyF/ Cyntoia Brown is a 16 year old girl and a victim of sex trafficking. She was trafficked by a pimp named “cut throat” and was repeatedly drugged and raped by different men. She was then sold like a piece of property to a 43 year old child predator, however this time she chose to fight back. Cyntoia shot the 43 year old to prevent him from raping her. As a result of this she was tried as an adult and convicted. She will be eligible for parole when she is 69 years old. Help get justice for Cyntoia please. We can not understand the pain she is going through right now, to be taken away from your family, stripped of your rights, personal freedoms, and liberties, just to be failed by your own justice system. Please do whatever you can to help Cyntoia. We can not let this go or pass by because this could very well be YOUR daughter, sister, niece, or friend. Sex trafficking is a huge problem in the United States and it does not only harm the person physically but emotionally. It leaves damage that can take years to get over, if the person can get over it at all. Cyntoia fought for her life she fought to escape that life ruining situation. She is already going to have to live with what happened to her for the rest of her life, she shouldn’t have to spend that already pain filled life in prison for years and years just because she chose to fight to be free again, to fight for her rights, her ability to say yes and no, for her peace of mind, and for her survival. Please I beg of every person that reads this please help Cyntoia Brown, please.
Petition to Google, Microsoft, Facebook
Tell Google, Facebook, and Microsoft to stop supporting child sex trafficking.
I was waiting to pick up my 15-year old daughter from track practice on an afternoon like any other. Minutes passed and then hours. I wondered where she was. Panic began to set in. My husband and I called the police, filed a missing person report, and started frantically searching for our baby girl. Only she was nowhere to be found. We were living every parent’s nightmare. When we recovered her 108 days later, we were so thankful to have found her alive. But then we found out the details. Our sweet girl had been bought and sold on the classified ads site, Backpage.com. She was repeatedly raped up to 15 times a day, all while hidden in plain sight on Backpage.com. A website making hundreds of millions of dollars a year off of human trafficking and exploitation of young girls. After her ordeal, my daughter and I sued Backpage to determine its role in her harm. The biggest surprise? Two special interest groups, the Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT) and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) — funded by tech industry giants Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and others — actually intervened to file briefs supporting Backpage. These tech groups were actually defending Backpage’s right to host ads selling children. Amazingly, the CDT and EFF have also jumped into other Backpage cases around the country filed by children. Support of Backpage by the tech industry has not wavered, even though a 21-month Senate investigation revealed that Backpage facilitated the crimes by coaching pimps on how to post ads to evade law enforcement. And still today, Backpage hosts ads selling children on its dating site and on other sites it owns and operates here in the US and around the world. Raking in hundreds of millions of dollars -- and it does this shockingly, under the protection of the law. Backpage has been protected by an outdated internet law, Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which protects websites from being sued for content posted by a third party. Thanks to the efforts of these special interest groups supported by Google and Facebook, federal judges have expanded this law to protect websites that facilitate child sex trafficking. Will you sign my petition telling Google, Facebook, and Microsoft that defending child sex trafficking is unacceptable? Sadly, my daughter’s experience is not unique. We are not alone. It’s estimated that there are hundreds of thousands of child sex trafficked victims annually in the United States. And we need your help. We need your voices to reach Google, Facebook, and Microsoft so that they, in turn, are persuaded to stop supporting Backpage. They can no longer allow the special interest groups to jump into these cases. My daughter and I have been fighting to change the law that protects Backpage since 2010 and because Backpage has won at every turn, we recently told our story to Dr. Oz and in the new movie, I Am Jane Doe, to try to bring our experience to a larger audience, all in an effort to prevent others from going through what my family has gone through. It's time for this to stop. No one else's daughter should be sold on Backpage. Please sign this petition to let Google, Facebook, and Microsoft know that financing the defense of Backpage is indefensible. Nicole S., mother of child who was trafficked through Backpage.com
Petition to Department of Justice, Isanti County, Minnesota, USA
Bring my oldest son home to his family and justice against our abusers.
Our abusers forced change to alter this petition to be more friendly to them so I apologize not much is left of the actual story and a picture even of my children. What they have done to this petition shows proof of exactly some of what we are up against. They want control so badly they falsely reported and got my children's pic and names taken down, even though 2 of my children are not under their legal control, and because in abuse the victims are not only not allowed freedom or justice but not even allowed to say our own Childrens name or post the only picture of my children I have of them together. My married name was Debora St. Michel, and after meeting and married who became abusive and controlling to my children and i, i was forced into legal hiding with my younger 2 babies as our abusers constantly make fake and wild claims against me in order to maintain control and keep my oldest son like a possession to try and maintain their perfect looking family as they continue to rape children in the very town i grew up in of hopkins minnesota where even police are either unwilling to investigate or who's hands are tied to help us have any kind of justice. My oldest son is trapped in abuse and being punished by pedophiles for having attempted to speak up about the ongoing abuse. He is being metally conditioned, isolated, physically conditioned, and abused on many different fronts including being refused relationships with his family and especially myself and his younger 2 siblings of which are safe and loved and well cared for by myself as I am an excellent mom. My ex and his immediate family have threatened my oldest sons death as well as my other childrens deaths and mine too if I reach out for help or speak truth or show the evidence I have possession of still to anyone. The justice system are our abusers friends in Hennepin county Minnesota and we need a change of venue to originating county where our case should have legally stayed as a legal change of venue away from Isanti county, because of an open domestic violence case, had never been submitted nor accepted. Even our divorce judge in Hennepin county named Stephen Aldrich was removed from the bench soon after our divorce for the very issues I have been speaking up about and please note that he was court clerk to a late grandfather of that family that was a judge as well and all knew and conspired against and preyed on my oldest son and I. Evidence such as testimony, medical reports, past therapist proof, and even a computer need to be evaluated by experts to show we are telling the truth and we need justice after 7 years plus of trying to get freedom and justice served. Please help us! Bring my oldest son home alive finally and allow us to begin to have a life not in legal hiding but to live without fear of the next rape or beating and death threat looming. God bless you for taking the time to read. Thank you! -Deb

Sign this petition. Protect 43,000 kids from sexual abuse
Do you worry about sex offenders teaching your children? Or coaching them? Or working in a daycare? Most people think sex offender registries and convictions protect their kids The problem is that 9 out of 10 sex offenders never get convicted, and never appear on sex abuse registries. Our criminal justice system fails victims, and statutes of limitation (SOL) on the child sex abuse keep most victims from pressing charges shortly after their 18th birthday. Researchers now know it takes victims, on average, 21 years to disclose their abuse. New York’s SOL on child sexual abuse bars most victims from the court on their 23rd birthday, which ensures most sex offenders stay off registries and around kids. The Child Victims Act lengthens New York’s SOL for this crime and gives older victims a chance to press charges in civil court. It’s a way to identify the predators who are lurking around children. Please, sign this petition and protect children from sexual abuse.

UNDER OATH: If any false statement under oath is punishable under law that is conducted in the court system,and failure to uphold the constitutional rights of parents to determine what is the best interest of their own children PREJURY LAWS: Both individual states and the federal government have laws making perjury a criminal offense a criminal offense. While the basic definition of perjury is the same at both the federal and the state level, the penalties may be different. For instance, the federal law against perjury in the US Code classifies perjury as a felony. this means that someone who lies under oath in federal Codes classifies perjury as a felony. this means that someone who lies under oath in federal court, or who lies under oath to a person acting on behalf of the federal government may be sentenced to up to five years in jail. ELEMENTS OF PREJURY: Although the elements of perjury vary between individual states and federal law, he or she generally must have1) been sworn in or made a solemn legal promise to tell the truth;2) may a false statement or told a lie on purpose. Prosecutors can sometimes can proved that defendant lied by showing inconsistency in prior statements made by the defendant. For instance, if a person testifies one way in a deposition and way in court, and the statement conflict with one another, this is solid evidence of perjury even if the prosecutor cannot prove which of the statement was untrue DEFENSES TO PREJURY: Making a mistake or remembering facts inaccurately is not an intentional misstatement, so if a defendant successfully argues that he agreed he simply made an error he cannot be found guilty of perjury. it tends to be difficult for a prosecutor to prove a reasonable doubt that the misstatement wasn't a mistake , so this defense is often sucessful The Violence Against Women Act, it's effectiveness, and how gender discriminatory policy impact practices, policies and judicial decision in the family courts and the America justice system. federal and state laws and programs must be consistently and fairly written and enforced to provide equal protection under the law for both men and women in family courts and in programs intended to protect intended to protect families and children from domestic violence. I am asking legislative APPROVALS, and their help in legislating and accepting my petition on Collenna's law Stop Forced Adoption in the United States. Thank you, for Taking your time and reading my petition, I am a mother that had a child that was forced into adoptions
