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 IDPH , Craig anderson, Sam Knox, Governor Pritzker
Let’s get fans in the stands - Change spectator limit at Illinois sports
Hello, I am the parent of a Senior football player at Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire. We are so excited that the kids have been given the opportunity to play football in the Spring. Please reconsider the limit of 50 spectators for outdoor sports - the same limit that is applicable to indoor sports. Also, please consider modifying the limits based on gym and stadium size. Groups of spectators can be spread out in an outdoor stadium separated by a safe distance. The same 50 person limit should not be applied to big schools and small schools alike throughout the state, and applied equally to indoor and outdoor sports. We allow dining outdoors for as many people as a restaurant can hold with tables distanced and with people taking off their masks to eat, yet we are not allowing a gigantic stadium like Stevenson to host more than 50 spectators in an outdoor space. We allow indoor retail and dining establishments to host guests based on a percentage of capacity rather than number limits. We are asking the Governor, IDPH, and IHSA to please reconsider having the same spectator limits for indoor and outdoor sports alike and to reconsider having the same spectator limits for large and small schools with varying gym and stadium capacities. Please make a more logical limit such as a percentage of capacity limit, or let schools make a seating chart showing where spectators can and can’t sit. This will have a much more logical and practical effect for indoor and outdoor sports and schools that have varying size gyms and outdoor stadiums. This can be done safely and responsibly and in line with the current scientific recommendations.
Petition to Tim Pecoraro
Pattonville High School Students need to stay in Phase 2 hybrid learning
Pattonville's Superintendent, Dr. Pecoraro just announced that in person high school will go back to 5 days a week starting March 29th. These will be a detriment to students physical health but mental health as well. This COVID-19 pandemic has put a lot of stress on students throughout this past school year and Pattonville has continued to add stress through many schedule changes. With school being 5 days a week, this will be a large change for all students since that has not been a thing since last March. Pattonville also has many classrooms that if all in person students are present, safe social distancing wont be enforced properly. With overcrowded hallways and lunch rooms, the ability to spread the virus will become more likely within the High School. If you are a Pattonville Student, Faculty Member or Family Member please sign this petition to keep our students mentally and physically safe during this pandemic.
Petition to Paul Ludwig
Please help make Atlantic Dunes Park a Historical Preservation by calling
Help make Atlantic Dunes Park a Historical Preservation Conservation park. Save the Trees and Birds at Atlantic Dunes Park ADP. $2.5 million dollars to be spent on the removal of 80 Historical trees which would mean a reduction of 40% tree canopy. Replacing w new costly trees that would require a sprinkler system (planting plastic in the ground) maintenance of system, waste of a costly and previous resource nature water. Putting a playground next to the handicapped parking lot, an education area which means less plants and trees when the currently pavilion could be used for such educational purposes. A grilling area in the middle of the nature area, which means a smoke filled environment for the existing residents of squirrels, blue jays, cardinals, egrets, herons and other wildlife. Hopefully the Historical Preservation board and city planners can draw up some plans that leave the 80 Australian Pines trees, one Almond tree alone and remove the smoky grilling area to keep the wildlife on the nature trails healthy. Thank you! Save the trees and birds! Just what we need, is another professionally landscaped, manicured, sun parched park! Atlantic Dunes Park is the last slice of serenity, peacefulness and natural beauty along the beach, with its abundance of wildlife and canopies of shade. It's a crime to destroy that, and I agree, our taxes can be put to much better use! $2.5 Million could be used for other necessary city budget items. Please click on the link below and sign the petition and leave your comments! http://chng.it/jN2ZVhRc Let’s make Atlantic Dunes Park a Historical Conservation Preservation unique park. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgt9SfzPx2M&feature=share Atlantic Dunes Park, save the trees. The city of Delray Beach parks and recreation dept and city planners want to kill all 80 Australian pine trees that are 60-80 possibly 100 years old, also a single almond tree. They say these trees do not allow for undergrowth. Currently these trees provide 40,500 square footage of shade at the park. This would be an approximate loss of 40% of the tree canopy. They border the lifeguard and handicap parking lot, existing boardwalks and restroom facility. These areas do not have any undergrowth potential as the are cement asphalt wood and bathrooms building space, where nothing can grow anyways. These trees currently are homes to roosting herons and egrets. The existing and proposed ADA boardwalk is also shaded by these beautiful trees. Hence these trees do not need to be removed nor replaced. The financial cost to the city and taxpayers for their removal and costly replacement is unnecessary. The beauty of this unique park is these trees and the birds that live, roost and breed in them. (I also do not see how putting a grilling area in the middle of a natural area will help the existing cardinals, blue jays and squirrels who already live there, with the smoke from grilling. I am curious to know who thinks a smoking grill with benefit the wildlife? ) Were taxpaying residents calling you all, emailing you, lining up at your office door to have birds and squirrels homes removed by killing these lovely trees? My family and I have been residing in Delray for over 40 years and have enjoyed ADP and these trees, birds, squirrels and wildlife and fauna. These current plans must be stopped. Thank you for your time, please help me save these innocent trees. These "non native" trees have these same rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of hosting wildlife, they just can not talk, lobby or protest, and they are peaceful and beautiful. please help me save these trees and taxpayer money. Please contact these city managers / officials. email@example.com, Petrolia@mydelraybeach.com, Boylston@mydelraybeach.com, Johnsons@mydelraybeach.com, Frankel@mydelraybeach.com, Casale@mydelraybeach.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, thank you ! save the trees.
Petition to Flanner and Buchanan/Floral park
Floral Park..Please Respect,Preserve,Dignify our Loved ones resting spot!
To whom it may concern ,I started this petition after seeing all the responses from the post I had left under another gentleman's post. I had posted a few weeks prior about my grandparents resting place at floral park cemetery. When I went to visit I was mortified at what I seen,the plot was muddy and sunken in and there was mud covering the headstone. It was sad to see that where I go to mourn and pay respects to many family members that have been laid to rest here is so delapidated and the workers with no regard for a sacred place be so blatantly disrespectful about our loved ones resting place. I have seen workers driving through the cemetery on their golf cart or gator over the headstones of our loved ones. This is definitely unacceptable and must not go on,someone needs to be held accountable for their actions and the condition of the grounds. There has been vandalism,theft and even headstones broke in half this petition is for our loved ones who in life would not tolerate and we need to be the voice that our Uncles,Aunts,Mother's,Father's,cousins,Brothers and Sisters no longer have. It is not ok to come to a place that is supposed to bring peace and comfort to living relatives but brings only more disappointment and Traumatizing sights. Please let's take action and get it resolved,Thank You
Petition to Saline Area Schools School Board, Steve Laatsch
Full-Time In-Person Classroom Instruction for Current SAS Hybrid Students
We tax-paying citizens of Saline Area Schools, with students elected to be in the hybrid model of teaching, support five day, full-time, in person learning for our students. Given the current climate of the covid data provided by the CDC, medical community, state, and local authorities, we believe it is in the best interest of the students to return to full-time classroom learning. We believe the benefits of full-time in-person instruction outweigh the risks at this time. We have elected for our students to be in-person, and give our full support to the teachers and district administration to return to full-time instruction. The option for virtual instruction should still be available to those who do not support in-person learning at this time. We support all aspects of our child’s/children’s education experience (academic, emotional, and social). We feel a full-time classroom experience is the only way to meet these needs in whole. We understand social-distancing measures may have to be loosened in order for this to take effect, and we accept that risk. We know the district will do its best to mitigate the spread of disease, as it has been doing so effectively since the beginning. Please consider our request for full-time instruction. We are supporting what we believe, as parents, is best for our children.
