Petition to Drexel swim club
I want people to understand that
racism is never ok !
Racism is never ok! On 8/4/2017 I was racially discriminated against at Drexel swim club. I was a new member and I paid to give my daughter a sweet 16 birthday party there. We were treated different than the Caucasian members. We did everything that was asked of us yet we were told yous don't belong here! They stated ( you need to go back to your own neighborhood) someone asked where did they come from. We were told we couldn't sit in the front. They told us a Dj was not allowed However every party they had there a DJ was around. They asked us to turn our music down and we did. The DJ played a song with profanity in it and I can understand them being upset about that, I told him please play only clean songs no profanity. Then they began yelling at us saying their members are leaving because we are here and it was our fault. They called the cops shut our music off and told us to leave. They kept following us around the park harassing us about everything even where the kids could sit, and yelling saying we don't belong here and we need to leave. Saying go back to where y'all came from. They left our children crying asking why they don't belong. They need to be investigated and held accountable for their actions. I was a member and paid my money just like the other members! RACISM IS NEVER OK ! My child has to live with this horrible experience the rest of her life! These children did nothing wrong! They simply wanted to celebrate dance, swim and have fun !

Petition to Collier County Public Schools
CCPS should Fire Veronica Fleming
Veronica Fleming is a teacher at Parkside Elementary School in East Naples. We want to bring this to the attention of Collier County Public Schools so that they can evaluate this instructor's explicitly racist and extreme views and proceed accordingly. We understand that as a private citizen Mrs. Fleming should be allowed to express herself, however, as an educator at a school composed of predominantly Hispanic, Haitian, and students of other minorities, one should always be professional and behave as an impartial authority figure that is held to higher standards. Veronica's status was posted between 8a.m. and 9a.m. on Thursday, Feb 16th. At that time, Mrs. Fleming was already at work and may have been in her classroom facing the very same young children of immigrants to whom she refers on her post as "less mouths to feed". https://www.facebook.com/vkochis Please sign and share this petition. For our children. Thanks.
Petition to North Carolina Governor, Parole Board Members
Stop Wasting Tax Dollars : Release Gerio Carson .
Hi, my name is Clarissa Carson my husband Gerio Carson OPUS #0067783 who participated in crime at the immature age of 19. He was appointed a public defender and plead not guilty and decided to take it to trial. He didn't have a jury of his peers and was found guilty even though the North Carolina State Coroner testified that the bullet from his gun could not have been the cause of death of the victim . There were three other suspects which took plea bargains and have since been released . Gerio has been incarcerated for 25 years and is in those 25 years he has become a mature, intelligent, compassionate and spiritual man. He has taken advantage of several educational and rehabilitative programs such as Anger Management, Character Education, Parenting, General Education Development, Human Resource Development, Computer Application, DART, Information System, Textiles & Upholstery, Napoleon Hill Project, Culinary Arts, CRC, Masonry and Horticultural. He came up for parole in 2014 and was denied based on three reasons: 1.Your release at this time would unduly depreciate the seriousness of the crime or promote disrespect for the law. 2. Your continued correctional programming in the institution will substantially enhance your capacity to lead a law abiding life if released at a later date. 3.There is a substantial risk that you would engage in further criminal conduct. Please take into consideration that he is extremely remorseful, rehabilitated and of all the accomplishments he has made in the 25 years of his incarceration. Lets stop using our tax dollars for someone who has been rehabilitated. Sincerely , Clarissa Carson

Call for Action in Response to Syosset Hate Graffiti
Three months ago, swastikas, profanity and other messages of hate were spray painted on Syosset schools. Enough time has passed, and no justice has been served. The voters of Syosset/Woodbury call for immediate action in the form of: 1. Criminal charges against the suspects OR 2. A public forum where the Nassau County Police Acting Commissioner and the Nassau County District Attorney will provide the community with: an understanding of why charges cannot be filed immediately details on what - if anything - law enforcement needs from the community to speed the filing of charges comments on rumors that have been swirling for the last three months The people of Syosset/Woodbury will not endorse racism, anti-semitism, or any other type of activity that promotes one race, religion or ethnicity over another. Failure to take action against this crime implies we will accept future acts of hate. Because we trust that Nassau County officials feel the same, we look forward to an expeditious closure of this black time in our community, and/or the opportunity to hear details from you within the next thirty days.

Criminalize racism in Japan
Japan is in violation of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination in which Japan signed in 1995(https://treaties.un.org/Pages/ViewDetails.aspx?src=IND&mtdsg_no=IV-2&chapter=4&clang=_en). Japan is also in violation of the Japan constitution article 14 which states “All of the people are equal under the law and there shall be no discrimination in political, economic or social relations because of race, creed, sex, social status or family origin.Peers and peerage shall not be recognized. No privilege shall accompany any award of honor, decoration or any distinction, nor shall any such award be valid beyond the lifetime of the individual who now holds or hereafter may receive it”(https://japan.kantei.go.jp/constitution_and_government_of_japan/constitution_e.html). There have been and continue to be cases of blatant racism in Japan on a regular basis. Foreigners have been denied entry into businesses, denied apartment entry, and denied job interviews simply because of their race. Even when becoming a Japanese citizen, equal treatment is not given. If Japan wants a seat on the UN Security Council and host the Olympics, racism must be outlawed. Japan needs to be pressured to make this a reality because frankly, they seem to be even proud of this racism and will not change unless pressured into it. I ask President Trump, the Secretary of State, and the ambassador to Japan to make it clear that they do not approve of the racism in Japan and the challenges it imposes on foreigners living in Japan.

FIRE DNC’s Data Service Manager Madeleine Leader: White men shouldn't apply for tech jobs.
White men need not apply. That’s the message out of the Democratic National Committee’s hiring team, currently on the hunt to filll multiple vacancies in their tech department. The political organization, which routinely makes grand statements about inclusion, recently sent an email to its employees looking to recruit people for eight open spots including IT Systems Administrator, Product Manager and Chief Security Officer. Though the Oct. 30 email says that the DNC is looking for a “staff of diverse voices and life experiences,” it apparently doesn’t mean white men. DNC’s Data Service Manager Madeleine Leader purportedly wrote in an email that the desire for diversity excludes “cisgender straight white males.” Leader adds, “I personally would prefer that you not forward to cisgender straight white males, as they are already in the majority.”

Stop the Proposed Fence at the Tulelake Municipal Airport, site of the former Tule Lake Segregation Center, California
Modoc County, California, approved a 5-year $3.5 million airport development plan that includes a massive, 3-mile long, barbed-wire topped 8-foot high fence. Having an airport, even a small and primitive airport, operating in the middle of the Tule Lake concentration camp site, is inappropriate and demeans the memory of more than 24,000 people who were incarcerated in Tule Lake. The proposed fence closes off remembrance of this civil and human rights tragedy, and it will destroy the integrity of this unique historic site. The fence will eliminate opportunities for Japanese Americans and others to visit, reflect and mourn. This exclusion will be a permanent legacy of Modoc County’s and the Federal Aviation Administration's failure to comprehend the traumatic injustice created by the racism, fed by wartime greed and hysteria and failed political leadership that led to the mass incarceration. The Tule Lake site has not yet been comprehensively surveyed to document surface and subsurface historic WWII resources. Consequently, it is a priority to identify structures and artifacts before more damage to the site takes place. In July 2014, the Tule Lake Committee sought legally-mandated environmental review of the entire airport area, which occupies two-thirds of the former Tule Lake site. However, instead of conducting careful examination of the entire area WITHIN the fence project, including subsurface review, the County and the FAA have argued their environmental responsibility is confined to surveying only a narrow strip of land where the 3-mile long fence would directly lie. In the past year, the Tule Lake Committee participated in talks with Modoc County, the FAA, other state and federal agencies and local representatives, hoping to promote understanding of the historic site’s significance, urging it be protected, not destroyed. Seeking a long-term solution to the problem of preserving an irreplaceable historic site, we raised the issue of moving the Tulelake airport to a less sensitive nearby location. It was clear to all interested parties that a small airport can be moved. It is not possible to move a historic site. Thank you for signing our petition! We are grateful for your support.
