Petition to Pleasant Grove Police Department, Jefferson County Grand Juries, Pleasant Grove City Council, Alabama
Dismiss the charges on Marshae Jones and charge the one who shot her and her unborn baby
27-year-old Marshae Jones was pregnant when she was shot and lost her baby on December 4, 2018. Her shooter Ebony Jemison was arrested but had the charges against her dismissed. Instead Marshae was charged with manslaughter. Marshae did not shoot the bullet that killed her child nor was she armed but she was still charged for allegedly initiating the fight and not protecting her unborn child. The system where a pregnant mother is charged because she’s lost her baby after being shot is a broken one. The racist and sexist laws allowed something like this to happen. How can a killer walk away free while the victim is charged for the act of killing an unborn child? Marshae has had an injustice done to her in being charged for her unborn child’s death while the shooter has walked away free. Sign this petition to help drop the charges against her and to charge the shooter again for her crimes.
Petition to Senator Lester Jackson, Georgia State Senate
Protect Georgia HBCUs by stopping the potential merge of FVSU, ASU & SSU.
Senate Bill 273 was proposed to merge Fort Valley State University, Albany State University and Savannah State University into Georgia Agricultural and Mechanical University System. The bill was withdrawn in April, however it is expected to be reintroduced in January 2020. Proposed by Senator Lester Jackson, a Paine College and Meharry Medical College (coincidently both HBCUs) alumnus, it is suggested to increase enrollment. However, the history of all three unique universities will be stripped away. Protect OUR HBCUs!! #SmallHBCUsMatter
Petition to Illinois State House, Illinois Governor
#JUSTICEFORJEMELROBERSON! We need answers! No word from the State Attorney's office.
We the family of Jemel Roberson is seeking justice and answers regarding his death the occured on November 11, 2018 at Manny's Blue Room Bar. On this day Jemel was doing his job as a Security guard and was shot by a Midlothian police officer 4x that has since been ruled as "FRIENDLY FIRE " which was not so friendly given the fact he was shot in the back! Jemel was only 26 when his life was tragically taken from his family. He was a musician by heart who was passionate about his music. Jemel was only doing his job by trying to stop a gunman. He was a church-going young man studying to be an officer of the law himself. We have yet to receive any updates from the State's Attorney office as it relates to the state decision regarding charges for his murder. We have been more than patient while seeking answers from the State Attorney's office as to how they're handling his case. There have been much in the news regarding others, but not Jemel's case. We're asking everyone to please sign this petition to help us get answers from Kim Foxx and her team at the State's Attorney office in Illinois.

Petition to ROBERT MOOSSY, Jonathan M. Smith, US Justice Department
Investigate my husbands unexplained death
More than 6 months ago, my husband was arrested in a dispute over a 2 dollar bus ticket and taken to Prince George’s County Detention Center. That was the last time I saw him alive. The officers responsible for causing his death were also in charge of investigating it, and I have no confidence in the objectivity or truthfulness of their findings. Since 2008, there have been at least three unexplained deaths of inmates at this detention center. That's why I need the Department of Justice to investigate and help find justice for my husband. My name is Regina Shields, Samuel Shields’ widow. I am writing this petition not only to find justice for my husband but also to perhaps stop a growing trend of police abuse within the Washington DC Metropolitan Area. Growing up in and around DC my entire life, I have seen and heard so many stories of police brutality and killings, but never would I have thought it would happen to someone I loved. Now, my husband too, is a statistic. And while I wait for justice, more people are at risk of becoming victims. The police say that my husband became disruptive in custody, went into medical distress, and was taken to the hospital where he died. But a witness who says she was at the jail that afternoon says six officers jumped on him and began beating him into submission when he refused to put on his jumpsuit. She says she heard his screams until he couldn’t scream anymore and saw his lifeless body rushed away. More than half a year has passed, and I have yet to receive any concrete answers concerning the cause of my husband’s death. Nor do I believe the Prince George County Jail or Police Department investigated my husband’s death objectively. No one should be arrested for a petty crime and end up dead. I lost my best friend to police brutality. No one should ever be treated the way he was, beaten and killed as if he weren’t human. I’m doing this for him, because he deserves Justice and I know he would have done the same for me. Far too often we hear this story, and far too often those connected to the brutality are charged with investigating it. The only way we can stop this pattern of unaccountability and guarantee justice is by ensuring that outside, objective legal agencies, take up the investigations in these instances. That is why the Justice Department needs to take this case and help bring closure to me and my family. Please join me and help me find closure. Sign, and tell Robert Moossy of the US Justice Department, Civil Rights Division to investigate my husbands death.
Petition to Donald J. Trump, Douglas A. Silliman, Joey Hood, Rex W. Tillerson, Donald J. Trump, Sylvia Evans
Help free a disabled U.S Veteran wrongfully imprisoned in Kuwait.
My daughter may never see her father again. Jermaine Rogers has served his country both in the military and as a contractor overseas. He now faces a lifetime in a foreign jail over fake drug charges. I need your help to get the Trump administration to bring him home. U.S. civilians serving to protect our country and in support of our military have been targeted by Kuwaiti police in the past. These charges have often turned out to be false, but only after the U.S. government intervened on their behalf. Jermaine needs that intervention today. Please sign my petition asking the Trump administration to demand the release of Jermaine Rogers so he can come back to the U.S. Death by hanging. That is almost what happened to Jermaine when he was falsely accused of dealing drugs. The death sentence was dropped, but a lifetime in jail isn’t much better, especially when you are innocent and thousands of miles away in a foreign land. I know Jermaine is innocent. He believes in serving America and that means representing our country with pride and the best behavior. Even if you do not believe my pleas, we should all agree a man who has served his country should not get life in prison for the non-violent crimes they claim he committed. So many people are standing up and speaking on behalf of Jermaine — people like U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal from Connecticut. As his family, we can’t thank them enough. We now need you. Please sign my petition today. Your signature will help bring our family together again and ensure actual justice is served for an American hero.

Preserve 227 Duffield Street/Abolitionist Place as a NYC Landmark
http://brooklyn.news12.com/story/40743233/activists-elected-officials-work-to-save-historical-building https://brooklyneagle.com/articles/2019/07/09/the-movement-to-save-the-downtown-brooklyn-house-of-two-abolitionists/ 227 Duffield St., located on Abolitionist Place in downtown Brooklyn, is the last known standing historic site in Brooklyn where well-known abolitionists lived and where people found freedom through the Underground Railroad. Its demolition is imminent. Since the City’s downtown Brooklyn development plan demolished all other Duffield Street historic residences, 227 Duffield represents the last known standing property to continue the legacy of African American history of resistance in New York City and nationwide and should be preserved as a city landmark. Joy Chatel, former inhabitant and owner pictured above, fought for its preservation until her death in 2014. May she rest in power. Photo taken from https://www.gofundme.com/htxtis With a lack of African American historical sites in Brooklyn, we cannot stop at the installation of statues recognizing historical figures. We must also work to preserve the physical movements of our ancestors. 227 Duffield Street was home to two prominent African American Abolitionists who were friends of and hosted William Lloyd Garrison. The property embodies the role Brooklyn and New York City played in the Abolitionist movement at a time when the Fugitive Slave Act was the law of the land. We cannot allow such an invaluable piece of our history to be erased. Historical scholar Cheryl Janifer LaRoche said a study commissioned by New York City’s Economic Development Corporation “provides overwhelming evidence” of abolitionist activity on the block. As community leaders and Brooklyn residents, we ask you, Lisa Kersavage, Executive Director of the NYC Landmark Preservation Commission, to review 227 Duffield St. for landmark status and preserve this location as part of our collective history. Only you possess the power to stay the demolition order. Please join us in honoring the sacred ground our ancestors walked in the fight for freedom, by investing in it as a community preservation project and not as in its’ permanent eradication.
Petition to William Latson, DR DONALD E FENNOY II, Frank A. Barbieri Jr, Karen Brill, Keith Oswald, Elan S. Carr
Terminate Spanish River High School Principal William Latson
Donate to the cause at gofundme.com April 2018 Spanish River High School Principal William Latson said that "Can`t say the Holocaust is a factual, historical event. This is not only offensive to a lot of people but it crosses the line into a hate crime or an anti semitic incident that the palm beach school district should launch a proper investigation into the comment made by William Latson which failed to do so. Palm Beach County School District needs to suspend him with out pay until a proper investigation is completed and add proper training for all school staff on how to teach about the Holocaust. PBCSD needs to terminate him for his comments. I am pushing for a expansion of the Holocaust education program across the state of Florida, from more classes on the subject to additional training for teachers. It is our job not only to stand up for the truth but also be the voice of the victims that cannot speak on their own behalf.
