End Hate Crimes Against Asian Americans
End Hate Crimes Against Asian Americans https://abc7ny.com/woman-set-on-fire-elderly-attack-89-year-old-attacked-bensonhurst-crime/6333749/ On July 14, 2020, a 90-year old Asian grandmother was attacked by two masked individuals during a routine stroll around 16th Avenue in the Bensonhurst area in broad daylight. As we have seen a significant rise in hate crimes against the Asian community during this COVID-19 pandemic, the circumstances surrounding this event are especially alarming. While the police are currently investigating this crime and searching for the perpetrators, the serious nature of this attack has caused an outcry in the Asian community, and despite the racial motivations of this incident, neither the NYPD nor the District Attorney have labeled this attack as a hate crime. As such, we respectfully request the following: The NYPD and Brooklyn District Attorney classify and investigate this incident as a hate crime; The City, State and United States Justice Department provide sufficient resources to address the rise in hate crimes; The Executive Branches and respective legislatures continue to take on and pass legislation to protect all communities against hate crimes, including the Asian American community. Homecrest Community Services Don Lee, Board Chair “We have all witnessed the rise of racially motivated attacks and harassment on Asian Americans during this global pandemic. In fighting Covid-19 along with everyone else, Asian Americans are also facing another vile disease - hate. When a hate crime is committed, it is not only an attack on one person but an attack on all of humanity. By signing and sharing this petition, I truly hope that we can turn this heartbreaking incident into a watershed moment in the continued fight for racial equality. Our community needs to be unified in order for our voices to be amplified.” - MC Jin
Petition to Littleton Public Schools Board of Education
Heritage Greens Neighbors Request Firm Decision Regarding Elementary School Boundaries
Background Recent Long-Range Planning Committee meetings have indicated the high likelihood the Heritage Greens neighborhood will transition to Dr. Justina Ford Elementary for the 2022-23 school year. While we will be content with a decision to move to Ford or stay at Lenski for the long-term, many families are concerned about the potential decision to move our children one year after the new school officially opens. As you know, our children have faced numerous obstacles over the past year concerning the ongoing COVID pandemic, and for their mental and physical well-being, consistency is paramount. If our children transition to a new school, they should start at Ford with the entire cohort of new students and faculty in the fall of 2021. Attending a brand new school may be thrilling, but it will also come with the inevitable fear of change. However, a fall 2021 transition will help minimize the social/emotional impacts as all students and faculty will have a shared experience. It will also provide consistency to younger students who are at the beginning of their elementary school years. Many Heritage Greens families rely heavily on the LPS bus system, so optionally enrolling in Ford for the 2021-2022 school year is not a reasonable solution. Petition We, the undersigned residents of the Heritage Greens neighborhood, call on the Littleton Public Schools Board of Education to make a firm, long-term decision to zone Heritage Greens to either Lois Lenski Elementary or Dr. Justina Ford Elementary so that students may attend said school in the 2021-2022 school year and moving forward.

National Park College Needs a Football Program!
National Park College is an amazing 2 year college in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Can you think of a better place than Hot Springs to spend 2 years of college at?! Over the last couple years the college has made a great step bringing sports to the university. Sports allow so many opportunities for the university as well for the locals in the region! We believe there are many who wish and are gifted enough to participate in college sports near home at the JUCO level. We believe it’s time for Nighthawk Nation to take one more big step! Start making plans to bring in a football program!! Arkansas in general is very behind in producing junior college football programs in the state. This will allow so many opportunities for our in state children and will bring about an amazing atmosphere to the college that will have everyone in the region ready to be a Nighthawk! We believe they should also use this as a tool to help the community. They should only be able to offer 3 out of state scholarships per year. Every other scholarship should be towards an in state student athlete. This promotes and empowers our local communities as well as it helps and support our local kids. The talent is here within a 100 mile radius of Hot Spring, Arkansas to produce a respected JUCO football program! With your support & signature we will keep pushing for National Park to take this next big step for our community! Sign and share!

Petition to Environmental Protection Agency
Review Environmental Impacts of Construction on Mattos Field/Webster St.
SEND the message to MEPA: Protect our Open Space and the environment! We, the signers of this petition, believe in the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) and their offices of the Massachusetts Environmental Protection Agency (MEPA) to do their part to safeguard Massachusetts special places and green goals in regard to the Mattos Field/Webster St. project. In November, the residents of Gloucester were asked to vote and approved funding for a controversial multi-million-dollar new school project that our City representatives led us to believe that any and all environmental reviews had taken place. It has been identified that several critical processes had not been completed. We the people urge MEPA to follow through on its duty to review all processes and provide meaningful opportunities for public review of potential environmental impacts of this project for which certain actions by state agencies are required. Some of theses actions are, but not limited to1. Complete a site visit and invite the public for input 2. Complete and submit an Environmental Impact Report 3. Complete and submit a Transportation Impact Assessment report We the people implore the EEA and MEPA to safeguard the LAWFUL PROTECTIONS that ensure health, safety, well-being, recreation and quality of life benefits for all. We the people ask that they deny the request to proceed to the MSBA/City of Gloucester (School Committee, School Administration and the Building Committee) This will avoid, minimize, and mitigate any damage to this fragile neighborhood environment to the maximum extent practicable. PLEASE ADD YOUR SIGNATURE TO THIS PETITION AND ALSO LEAVE A COMMENT OF CONCERN AS THEY WILL BE SENT TO THE MSBA FOR REVIEW! YOU MAY ALSO SEND IN YOUR COMMENTS TO MEPA@MASS.GOV Public notice was published in the Gloucester Daily Times on February 12, 2021 for a review of any adverse environmental impacts from a new consolidated school, EGS/VETS on Mattos Field/Webster Street.

We hope you do both. Thank you all for your past and continued support of Mattos Field!

PROTECT our drinking water and SAVE Fulling Mill Brook
PROTECT Our Drinking Water and SAVE Fulling Mill BrookA proposed commercial building on undeveloped land on Prospect Street (Route 68) is being reviewed by the Naugatuck Inland-Wetlands Commission for possible approval. The current plans include a 10,000-square foot building, a parking lot, and a bridge crossing over Fulling Mill Brook. This development is called "0 Prospect Street" (IWC #20-08/Acct# 070-3100) and would be located approximately across the street from Mike's Engine Stand and Reliable Pools and Spas. We, the undersigned, are opposed to this development and ask the Inland-Wetlands Commission to deny approval for the following reasons: 1. This project could have a devastating impact on the wells and aquifers used by surrounding neighborhoods. Earth moving and/or blasting could cause these wells to become contaminated, less productive, or dry up entirely. For those residences on well water, there is currently NO alternative water supply available. 2. This project has been ruled a significant activity and poses the potential for major impact to the wetlands surrounding Fulling Mill Brook. It will displace wildlife and destroy wildlife habitats, contribute to the loss of green corridor and aquatic life, harm ground soil, and potentially compromise Fulling Mill Brook, its streamlets, wetlands, underground water springs and the Naugatuck River.
Petition to Deans office, Student Affairs
Reinstate WCMQ's longstanding tradition of Faculty Roast
Faculty Roast has been a celebrated tradition for the Graduating Class of WCMQ for many years. In the past this tradition is has been a way for both faculty and students to bond, it has allowed students to express themselves creatively and has created lighthearted joy amongst the viewers. In 2019, there was a decision to suspend the roast based on some of its content. This year, when Class of 2021 asked for it to be reinstated they were told by Student Affairs that they have decided to suspend it for an arbitrary time period of two years with no re-consideration this year. Class of 2021 would like to revive this longstanding tradition and produce a Faculty Roast that would only be displayed with consent of the faculty members depicted.
