Petition to Los Angeles International Airport

LAX: get rid of the Chick-fil-A

We are looking for a passionate starter to take ownership of this petition. Sound like you? Start here. A report came out recently that showed that Chick-fil-A is still bankrolling anti-LGBTQ causes. Five years ago, they vowed to “treat every person with honor, dignity, and respect-regardless of their beliefs, race, creed, sexual orientation and gender.” Guess what? It wasn’t true. This report showed that it sent hundreds of thousands of dollars to anti-LGBTQ organizations in 2015. Just recently, Chick-fil-A lost two airport deals in the last few weeks over this news. We have to keep the momentum going forward: if the Los Angeles International Airport - one of the most traveled through airports in the US - were to end its contract with the restaurant, that would encourage other airports to follow suit and make our voices heard that we won’t stand for hate-fueled chicken. The Chick-fil-A foundation sent more than $1 million to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, which has a strong anti-LGBTQ message. “Homosexual activity” is strictly prohibited among staff and volunteers. The Human Rights Campaign rates Chick-fil-A a zero on LGBTQ inclusive policies. Not only did Chick-fil-A not live up to its promise to stay inclusive, but they are vehemently anti inclusion based on their donation record. Send the message to LAX: get rid of Chick-fil-A now.

Petition to LGBT, Baltimore, korean, SPA

Keep Seoul Spa open in Baltimore MD

To our community, loyal customers, and every small business owner, We are a small business in Baltimore, MD called Seoul Spa. We need your help to stay open.  Our situation: The new landlord is trying to force us to move out. A little bit about our business. Seoul Spa is a traditional Korean spa - It consists of detoxing in dry heat and soaking in herbal tubs. We have been in business for about 8 years now and our spa is the only one of its' kind in the Baltimore area. We create a relaxing space to enjoy with family and friends. I'm proud to say we have a wonderful LGBT community that supports us and have become the most loyal regular customers. Without them, we may have already floundered. Our customers have been directly affected since the change in building ownership. Seoul Spa is located on the second floor of the building. The landlord has blocked off the escalators (served as the most accessible stairs for 8 years) and allowed access to one elevator (located far from front entrance in a corner) to reach our business. Frequently, the elevator will not function and the front entrance doors to the building are locked. Due to this, there are so many worries to name. When there is no functioning elevator and the entrance doors are locked, the customers cannot reach us. In this case, we must have an employee leave the spa to guide the customer from the front door to the spa. Please, we need signatures to help assist in our court case to stay open. The support of these signatures will hopefully help keep our case strong in court. We have used a great deal of money we cannot recover from, in order to stay afloat.  Respectfully, Seoul Spa www.seoulspausa.com
