Petition to United States Congress, Republican National Committee, Americans, Ivanka Trump

#RESIGN

PLEASE JOIN ME - I am just an American mom with 2 young daughters and I am asking you to join me to insist that DONALD J. TRUMP resign from the Presidency of the United States of America.  I am calling on ALL Republicans, on Ivanka Trump, Speaker Paul Ryan, Senators John McCain, Mitch McConnel, etc.This past weekend in Charlottesville, hundreds of white supremacists, domestic terrorists, KKK, and Nazis gathered with torches, shouting racial, ethnic and religious epithets about Black and Jewish people, chanting Nazi slurs, waving the Confederate flag and banners emblazoned with giant swastikas. A peaceful protester was murdered. Two brave police officers lost their lives. Those people with a hateful message were there because Donald Trump gave them license. His campaign enticed them. He validated them, evidenced by his failure to call them out, while falsely equating those who countered them. David Duke the KKK clansman confirmed that they were there for Trump! A very long 48 hours later, on the 3rd day, and after a national outcry Trump’s handlers wrote a speech for him, where he tried to undo the harm of his first response, but he read it from a teleprompter like a dispassionate petulant child forced unwillingly into something by his parents. He undid that forced speech in less than 12 hours!  He showed us that he does not understand the nature of all this - that he must be one of them!  The person holding the office of President should know that NOTHING and NO ONE can equate to the KKK and the White Supremacists and the Nazis among us! Do you agree? Trump’s leadership has brought well known White Supremacist types / sympathizers into the White House and his administration: Trump, Sebastian Gorka, Katherine Gorka, Stephen Bannon, Stephen Miller, Jeff Sessions, et al… Until they are ALL gone The WHITE HOUSE is in essence a HATE GROUP.After Today's debacle where Trump cemented in our history books the reality of what he is - not to mention all the problems he has brought upon us in the past 6 months and before that during his campaign - we must implore upon him to #RESIGN.It is absolutely incumbent on the Republicans and their leaders to helm this call for his resignation NOW before more people die and more are hurt.No more time for lip service, nor time to #RESIST . We have done a lot of that. As a fully unified America, ( without the morally deficit few who roam our streets unabashedly waving their Nazi flags and torches- ) we can stand together against their hate as one America. Unfortunately Trump proved today that he is incapable of unifying us in this effort. So we must unify ourselves through one voice - calling for his #RESIGNATIONWE the people of the United States of America call upon DONALD J. TRUMP to #RESIGN the presidency of our beloved country.#RESIGN  Melanie Nathan@MelanieNathan1

Petition to YPS , YHS

YHS GSA

It's hard to be a teenager. Teens face all sorts of pressures from their parents, their friends, and their peers, as well as pressure from themselves to discover who they are, especially when people in their lives may not always be supportive. Young adults coming to terms with their own sexuality often feel like they are the only one experiencing such feelings. They feel like no one could possibly understand the complex emotions that they are expressing. It is critical to a young person's healthy development to have a strong support system they can turn to when life becomes complicated or they deal with complex situations and emotions. An organization exists to help teens come to terms with their own sexuality, the Gay Straight Alliance, and this petition is to start a chapter locally at Yukon High School in the community of Yukon, OK. It is in this organization that students, no matter what their own sexuality, can come together to talk about who they are, in the community of their own peers. Heterosexual students can be vital allies for LGBTQIA+ students who may experience harassment and bullying from other students in school. The support of these such allies may be the key to decreasing the high rates of depression and suicide for LGBTQIA+ students. Join us in creating a community of support, encouragement, friendship, and love for all students at Yukon High School. Sign the petition to start a Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) Club today.

Save the Venice Pride Flag Lifeguard Tower

Last June the first-ever LGBT public art project in L.A. County history was unveiled at an oceanside ceremony. Located at Brooks Ave. on Bill Rosendahl Memorial Beach in Venice, CA the Venice Pride Flag Lifeguard Tower has become a beloved destination for locals and tourists alike. In nine weeks thousands have flocked to photograph the dramatic tower and broadcast its powerful message of equality and inclusion to millions across the globe. On September 8th the rainbow-colored tower is set to be erased... forever. At a time when so much of what the LGBT community and its allies fought for is under attack, the L.A. County Board of Supervisors should save the Venice Pride Flag Lifeguard Tower by designating it a permanent public art project. Funded by Venice Pride, a local non-profit dedicated to saving LGBT lives, and Dunn-Edwards Paints, the tower serves as an important visual reminder that Los Angeles will always welcome people no matter whether they are gay, straight, lesbian, bi, transgender, queer or questioning.  With only 37 days left, we need everyone's support. Please join me in urging the L.A. County Supervisors to pass a motion designating the Venice Pride Flag Lifeguard Tower a permanent public art project by signing this petition now.
