Help Save Home Studios In Music City (Including My Own)
Did you know that Nashville TN calls itself Music City but doesn't allow home studios to record musicians? In fact, no one in Nashville can work from home if clients need to visit their house. Home studios face harsh fines and court orders if anyone reports their existence to the Metro Codes Department. It happened to me and can happen to anyone working from home in Nashville. My name is Lij Shaw and I am a single dad, music producer, and homeowner living in East Nashville. I have peacefully supported my family working from my home studio for 20 years with no complaints from my neighbors. In fact, I have recorded many of them during that time. In 2015 my studio received its first Grammy award after the Best Roots Gospel Album Of The Year was mixed there. But a month later I had to cut the celebration short when another homeowner, angry about being denied a license for his own home business, decided to report every other home business he could find to Metro Codes including mine (watch the video starting at 25:10). Metro Codes then sent me a Cease And Desist letter ordering me to remove my recording equipment under threat of a warrant and court order. Music City has a long history of songwriters writing and recording together in home studios. Tutors, teachers, artists, writers, and hairstylists also work from home without hurting anyone. These residents all support Nashville’s economy, and yet any of them can be shut down at a moment’s notice from Metro Codes. With Nashville's skyrocketing cost of living, residents need the flexibility and freedom to earn a living by working from home. The Metro Council is debating whether to allow Nashville residents to legally work from home by having their clients come over. By joining this petition you will be helping to send the message that we support allowing residents to work from home by serving their clients inside the house. Please share this petition with your friends a family and include this hashtag #SaveHomeStudios Thank you so much for your support! Let's keep music alive and well in Music City.Lij Shaw PS To learn more visit SaveHomeStudios.com PPS Change.org offers a donation option by default to help boost the visibility of this petition.

Petition to Appalachian State University, Students, Boone Community
Place a Reproductive Health Vending Machine on Appalachian State's Campus
Planned Parenthood Generation Action is a student run organization on Appalachian State University's campus that is currently fundraising to purchase and stock a vending machine on campus that will dispense reproductive health products like Plan B, male and female condoms, pregnancy tests, menstrual products and MORE. While Appalachian State University does provide low cost Plan B to students through health services, this is not as accessible as it should be. Students are only able to retrieve Plan B, which is a time sensitive medication, and other reproductive health services during clinic operating hours. They also must see a pharmacist in order to receive even over the counter products like Plan B. This vending machine would be available to students 7 days a week, and would provide products at little to no cost. Not only would this improve accessibility, but it would also help students feel more comfortable and able to discreetly retrieve the products that they need. We are asking you for help with two things: We need you help in asking for approval from the university to place the machine in an accessible and discreet location. Ask your university for what you need! We are able to contribute to the initial stocking of the machine through fundraising, and will commit ourselves to continual fundraising for the machine. However, we ask that the university makes a commitment to keep the machine well stocked with much needed products that are already available through health services like Plan B, menstrual products, and condoms.

Petition to Coshocton County Commissioners, Sheriff Tim Rogers
Name Coshocton County Ohio a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary.
The war against the people's right to bear arms is continuing. Governor Dewine seems intent to pass legislation in the "Strong Ohio" bill that will do nothing more than WEAKEN Ohio gun owners rights. The purposed "Red Flag" style language in the bill is so vague that it could easily be turned into a weapon by bitter enemies, ex lovers or even your nosy neighbor. This bill can and will be abused. Many counties around the state have already begun adopting 2nd Amendment Proclamations. We want this for Coshocton County! None of the purposed infringements would have prevented the tragedies in Dayton and around the country. The only thing that stops bad guys with guns... is a good guy with a gun. An armed society is a polite society! Please sign and let our leaders know that "Shall not be infringed" means SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED!
Petition to Dodge city police department
Charge police officer for killing woman
Charge the police officer that killed an innocent women Saturday morning Jan 25. At 5am. In dodge city ks, The police officer was responding to a break in call & did not have his lights nor his sirens on and was speeding down Wyatt Earp going westbound near Matt Down Lane when the women entered the intersection UNAWARE of the police officer speeding down the road because he did not have any lights or sirens on. Keep in mind that these police vehicles are black and it is 5am the sun is not even out yet. The DCPD officer struck the women’s vehicle on the passenger side ejecting her out of the vehicle and was pronounced dead on the scene. Now if this was any normal person that was not a police officer, they would be sitting in jail right now facing manslaughter or murder. Instead this police officer was taken to the hospital where he is in stable condition and probably is going to be on administrative paid suspension. I call for this police officer to be charged in the death of this innocent woman. Dodge city police department can do that, it’s up to us to make sure they do that please sign and let’s make a difference because DCPD gets away with a lot of things and just police officers in general. It’s time we make a change.
Petition to All NMFT Members
An Open Letter from NMUSD Teachers
An Open Letter from NMUSD Teachers: Our “No” Vote Represents our Community The August-start calendar imposed upon our community by a handful of NMUSD officials and elected board members cannot take effect unless teachers agree to a contract. With this in mind, we will be voting NOT to approve the tentative agreement (TA) that has emerged from the impasse and mediation process. We believe that a NO vote is the best way to support our NMFT negotiations team, and we want to be clear about precisely why we will vote NO. First and foremost, we believe education ought to be a LOCAL institution. Community surveys have shown that residents, parents, and students reject the August start date by a 2-1 margin. The NMUSD board and administration have thus resorted to using contract negotiations to force this calendar upon the residents of Newport Beach and Costa Mesa. We believe this is categorically wrong. We also find it difficult to negotiate with a partner who has broken our current contract. At the very least, negotiations ought to be suspended until all legal action pursuant to section 13.2 has been resolved. Furthermore, the fact that the district’s lawyers have used the contract language relevant to this ongoing investigation as leverage in current negotiations is unacceptable. An administration who fails to honor the current agreement cannot open the next round of negotiations with demands. Furthermore, the math of the TA simply does not add up: The 3.5% raise is swallowed by the California cost-of-living adjustment of 3.26%. The current TA denies faculty a raise during contract negotiations AND shortchanges them for their extra work during August of 2020, costing the average teacher over $1300 in wages. Grading periods are completely out-of-sync. The first semester is 79 days, while the second is 101 days; schools on the trimester system will have marking periods of 49, 72, and 59 days. We also take umbrage with the district’s bad faith negotiating: Executing a propaganda campaign designed to mislead students, parents, and teachers about the August-start calendar; Using the installation of air conditioning--a key health and safety measure--as a bargaining chip; Lowballing on early salary and benefit offers to manipulate the mediation process; and Forcing a “punt” on key reforms in elementary equity. We are professional educators who have dedicated our lives to community service. Put students in a classroom and we will ensure they learn--any time of year. But at this moment, we are also the final line of defense between our communities and an administration that refuses to hear and a school board that does not represent the people of Newport Beach and Costa Mesa. We vote NO because we support the communities we serve. We vote NO to send our negotiation team back to the table with renewed energy and strength. Yours in service, The Undersigned NMFT Teachers
