Reinstate Myles Garrett
On the night of November 14th 2019, Myles Garrett was attacked while playing for the admirable Cleveland Browns, by an evil fill in QB named Mason Rudolph, and his yellow henchmen. Myles, being the beloved defensive man he is, fought back and won ripping Masons helmet off! Unfortunately, the evil zebras and Mr Roger Goodell of the NFL, conspired to end Garrett’s shining year, and take the wind out of our beloved Cleveland Browns. Us at Barber & The Brain (CLE’s greatest podcast) want to fight back, get Myles Garrett back on the field, and assist our team to many more victories!!! Help us, and sign the petition!
Petition to City of Santa Clarita and William S. Heart School District
Metal Detectors in all of Santa Clarita Schools
We are at a loss of 2 precious lives. Lets at least make sure that we take measurements, maybe temporary, but we need to think of better ways to keep our kids safe. We drop them off at school thinking that they will be okay, but now we are not so sure. Please sign this petition and lets start somewhere. Right now, what they do at high Schools, is just check ID, but when the threat is part of that school, what will checking ID do? With metal detectors at the gates, we can make sure no one brings any kind of weapon into school with the intent to harm others. I've lived in Santa Clarita for 30 years and never felt unsafe. TIMES have changed! Lets do something NOW. Please sign the petition and lets take it to city hall and the school district. Lets implement the lock and key of fire arms at home, lets get mental health services more accessible even if you think that problems at home can be resolved without it, and most importantly, let's fund raise to implement metal detectors at schools. While we wait on politicians to make changes, we can make a difference ourselves. Metal detectors can stop anyone from bringing weapons or unsafe items to schools. By stopping students from bringing suspicious objects into schools, we can save lives. Not only will it prevent students from bringing knives and guns, we can additionally prevent students from bringing in items like vapes and Juuls. By eliminating these items, students can be put at ease that there is a lower risk of anything happening to them while they attend school. Going to school and studying and getting good grades should be a student's only concern, not surviving a mass shooting. Lets try and make schools a safe heaven again. California is the state with the most regulations for gun control, terrible incidents such as this one shouldn't happen. My heart goes out to the parents of the these precious lives. We are a community that cares for our family, children and our neighbors. We have been shaken to our core after this tragedy, lets do this! we can do it! I've talked to many of you and I know you are in the same mind set to make a change!!! "Surviving high school should be metaphorical, not literal"

Riverdale Express Bus Service Cuts
On Monday, November 18, 2019, a town hall meeting was held in Riverdale regarding the proposed express bus service cuts. In attendance were several of our local politicians. The turn out was very high with over 400 residents in attendance. The proposed cuts directly impact residents of the 81st Assembly District and include the following bus lines (BXM1, BXM2, BXM3, BXM4, BXM11 and BXM 18). The cuts will include abbreviated service (meaning no evening southbound service or morning northbound service and decrease service frequency at other times). For those of us who live in the Riverdale section of the Bronx, we rely on these express bus services. If we chose to use the subway, we would still need to take a local city bus to 230th and Broadway to hop on the 1 which is very often inaccessible or just not running and the Metro North is more costly. The Express Buses are the primary source of transportation in Riverdale for most and to decrease the service would also cause property values to go way down as residents would be limited in their transportation needs. I urge everyone to write letters and start petitions and let your voice be heard.

Petition to Albemarle County School Board, Albemarle County Board of Supervisors
Reduce detention and suspension of minority kids in Albemarle County Schools
The photo and comment above was captured this past spring after my son had been sent out of class to the detention room more than 50 times. As you can see from the scars on his arm in the above photo, he had also begun cutting and self-harming. The statement above the photo was made in an email by one of several teachers who continually sent him to detention in spite of the emotional harm it caused. Needless to say, his diagnosis of anxiety increased to severe depression during the same time-frame. My son is not alone in his experience. Day after day, hour after hour he spent with many other children of color--immigrants and black students often with diagnosed conditions such as his who were repeatedly sent out of class and excluded from learning. This petition asks our local officials to fully adopt and set aside funds to provide staff, enforce policies and develop positive-based procedures to stop harsh treatment of minority and disabled students in Albemarle County schools. We are asking for dedicated funds set aside to employ full time support staff and new teachers across area middle schools. Hiring additional staff combined with ongoing training programs and newly written transparency procedures with defined consequences would rapidly provide positive returns and begin the work of turning what has become a negative trend into a positive learning environment for all students. A recent education policy report “The High Cost of Harsh Discipline and its Disparate Impact states: “If policymakers who once endorsed tougher codes of conduct that include frequent disciplinary removal had known of the tremendous long-term economic cost of suspending students from school, it is likely that most schools would have invested in more constructive approaches to handling misbehavior that reserve removal from the classroom or school as a punishment of last resort” (2016). By signing this petition we ask our county officials to: 1. Stop the existing harsh discipline in the county middle schools that disproportionately affects minorities, black, immigrant and students with disabilities and learning difficulties. 2. Adopt new policies that include transparent accountability measures for teacehrs and staff that engage in discriminatory actions. 3. Hire a combination of 5 teachers and support staff including an emotional support case worker for each middle school to reduce the student/teacher ratio, address specific needs of students who have difficulties and provide teacehrs a better opportunity for differentiated instruction in the classroom setting. 4. Commit sufficient earmarked funding to ensure that dollars are spent for the specific purposes listed above.
Petition to Redondo Beach Traffic Commission, Redondo Beach City Coucil, Redondo Beach Public Work, Redondo Beach Neighbors
ALL WAY STOP SIGN FOR BLOSSOM LANE AND MATHEWS AVENUE
Hello Neighbor, This is a letter to request all way stop signs at the corner of Mathews Avenue and Blossom Lane. The all way stop signs are to improve the safety at the corner and reduce the speed of the drivers on Blossom Lane. We reached out to the city over 2 years ago and our voices were not heard due to lack of communication from the Public Works Department. The city installed the permanent white bollards at this corner without inviting us to the meeting. These white bollards are not helpful and have also become unsightly for our corner. Trash collects in the area and the weeds are growing. The white bollards have not increased the safety at this intersection. Visibility is still a problem and the bollards do not decrease the speed of the cars on Blossom Lane. There was recently a 5 car accident at the corner. We continue to hear horns beeping and tires screeching from the near misses. It is still difficult to see the south bound traffic travelling on Blossom Lane while travelling East on Mathews Avenue. Drivers, cyclists, pedestrians, and families with strollers need to "inch" into the middle of the intersection to be able to see the crossing traffic. Cars often "gun it" to avoid being hit by the oncoming car and then the car travelling on Blossom will slam on their brakes. In addition, the speed of the cars on Blossom feels dangerous to pedestrians, families with strollers, and cyclists waiting on the corner to cross. Children and families use this intersection to get to school and parks. The local Walking School Bus meets on this corner. Neighbors frequently walk the intersection when visiting the local shops and post office in the area. There has been an increase in vehicle traffic as well since the grocery store, CVS, and Chik-Fil-A are now open. Neighbors who sign this petition agree that adding stop signs on both the north and south directions at the intersection of Mathews Avenue and Blossom Lane is necessary and would improve the safety of the corner. We agree that all way stop signs are necessary at the corner of Blossom Lane and Mathews Avenue. Thank You.
