Petition to Kirsten Gillibrand, chuck schumer
Prosecute NYC police officers who are charged with criminal offense.
The students of The Urban Academy Bronx Academy of Letters believe that the NYPD are not properly addressing the concerns of the Bronx community. Police brutality has become rampant, and a large percentage of police officers are targeting unsuspecting individuals. Senate Bill S3433 is a proposed solution to ending this problem. Senate Bill S3433 Requires the attorney general to prosecute New York city police officers charged with a criminal offense in violation of any of the laws of this state. Please sign our petition asking NY State Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand to help make this bill into law.
Petition to New York Government, NYC government, Department Of Buildings, New York City
Bureaucracy destroying the American dream
Atmosphere Essentials, a business in the historic town of Tottenville in Staten Island, New York- is going to be shut down because of the carelessness of the NYC government and department of buildings. This business supports over 17 individuals including the family members of those who work there. The founder, Antonio Sciortino is a Venezuelan immigrant who made his life here by opening a small business where he started by producing organic skincare products using knowledge from his doctorate degree in chemistry. Although Atmosphere Essentials has been an established business for over 11 years, and the property was purchased as a commercial property, the city is trying to close it down. Because the buildings were erected in 1915, they did not need a C of O. Now after more than 20 years as a commercial business property, Atmosphere Essentials is under attack- threatening the livelihood of many good American families. Mr. Sciortino is more than willing to work with the department of buildings on making necessary changed to the property, please help these families gain support and attention by signing this petition.

We Stan Queens! We Want NYC Clean!
Around NYC, like our local Queens neighborhoods, there are multiple plots of land that are just homes for overgrown weeds and the loose trash of fellow NYC residents. They’re an eyesore for the most of us, and we even go out of our way to avoid these plots of land. We recognize how dirty they are, yet we do nothing to fix them. Specifically, the Astoria area near our school, BSGE, is mostly comprised of ongoing construction sites with lots of junk, trash, and weeds sprinkled about them. THIS DETRACTS FROM NYC’S -SPECIFICALLY QUEENS’- APPEAL! THIS PETITION CALLS FOR MAYOR DE BLASIO TO RECOGNIZE THESE AREAS AS NUISANCES! WE NEED THE NYC SANITATION AND THE PARKS & RECREATIONS DEPARTMENTS TO COOPERATE TO CLEAN THESE AREAS UP! NOT ONLY THAT, but we need the PEOPLE of NYC to help out! This mission cannot be accomplished if we as the residents of NYC do not do our part. From signing this petition, we expect that the MAYOR and these TWO DEPARTMENTS come together to decide on: The clean up of these areas with either paid labor or volunteered help. The restoration of these areas to become pleasant aspects of Astoria and other Queens neighborhoods. The further clean up of additional problem areas in the other boroughs. The suggested transformation of turning these plots of land into community gardens. The added funding necessary to maintain these areas as clean environments. PLEASE, join our fight to make NYC a better looking and better feeling place to live in! With hope, the students of BSGE, Fabian F, Tatiana L, Daniel N, and Zaki R. :] ***Credit to Fabian for taking the photo of a lot that is very close to the 39th Avenue N and W train station in Astoria Queens.***
Petition to Donald Trump, Bill de Blasio
Billy D. Blasio,Think of the Children and Keep NYC Public School Open on March 21st,2018
We need to keep schools open tomorrow. It’s not fair that students miss out on valuable education time when we don’t even know if it will know if it will snow tomorrow. We need to tell Billy “What would your son Dante say if he had to miss out on 7 hours of invigorating educational time just because there’s a small chance it’ll snow the next day.”And snow’s never killed anyone. It wouldn’t hurt anyone if they had to walk in some snow or wait a little longer for the train or bus. We could even have the kids do some work for once in their lives and make them shovel out the schools and parks. We’ll even save some tax dollars letting them do the honour of helping the DOE in their mission of quality education for all for free. If The Donald were our mayor we’d never have this problem.Billy, stop wasting our tax dollars and keep school in session

AMC Must Stop the Unilateral Sale of the NY/NJ Fire Island Cabin
Many of us who volunteer at Appalachian Mountain Club's Fire Island Cabin are shocked to learn the AMC HQ in Boston plans on selling the facility without having consulted the hundreds of constituent NY/NJ Chapter members. We do not agree with AMC's HQ plans to remove this valuable asset, sustainable nature, and vibrant community from the NY-NJ Chapter, and want the process stopped for a full, transparent, and local review of alternatives. The Fire Island Cabin sits on 1.4 wooded acres in Atlantique that was, as we understand it, a 90-year old gift of to be protected from development. It's an oasis of nature, recreation, and goodwill, operated in the black by an all volunteer community, in the midst of a metropolis of 20 million people. This rushed Fire Island Cabin land grab by AMC HQ does not seem to support the NY/NJ Chapters constituency, volunteers, nor priorities, especially in light of AMC's millions spent on huge tracks of uninhabited rural land in Maine, and the building of new multi-million dollar resorts there -- 300 miles from any metropolitan area. Please fully inform all AMC members of this imminent plan, explore more creative long-term options, and delay any transactions until a vote from membership can bring about real agreement. Meanwhile, we will continue to #stopAMCsellout Thank you.
