Demand resignation of Trump: a self-admitted sexual predator
It is disservice to women and men everywhere to continue to tolerate a self admitted sexual predator as president of the United States. In this evolutionary #metoo movement we see with sexual harrassers and predators resigning across all strata of society, it is hypocrisy in its most extreme to let the president remain in his position whilst other senators are resigning and potentially being elected in the midst of seriously disturbing allegations. Consistency in our standards of treatment of these matters and our self respect and integrity as women and men on this Earth is at question if we continue to support a misogynist as President. What message does it send to our future generations? How will all of you stand when history inevitably turns it's lens on you? How will we truly be the country we aspire to be when we suffer this double standard and look the other way? It is an empty #metoo movement if the President himself is not investigated by an ethics committee for his sexual allegations, assaults, and misconduct that go back decades and 19 women have accused him of. It is a travesty of justice if he is allowed to remain to govern this country when he can't even govern where his hands may land on a woman? So I urge you to please sign the petition. I am an American woman who feels outraged by this cognitive dissonance and am asking every female senator in the government regardless of your party to search your heart and do the right thing. I'm asking America to do the right thing by women, by our mothers, our daughters, our sisters, our friends, and our sons to be raised in a better society that values women and our sovereignty over our bodies.

Remove Florian Jaeger and Reevaluate Sexual Harrassment Policy
For years a scandal was tearing apart the University of Rochester Brain and Cognitive Sciences department, but most of the school community was unaware until Mother Jones broke the story on September 8th. U of R students were shocked and disgusted to learn that: Professor Florian Jaeger had been reported for sexual harassment by multiple students and faculty; This harassment included unwanted sexual pictures, threats, stalking, and verbal abuse; The school promoted Jaeger while he was still under investigation, eventually clearing him in a procedure conducted by an investigator who refused to even look at all the evidence offered by Jaeger's victims; The school retaliated against professors who reported the abuse, even denying them legally mandated maternity leave; Richard Aslin, the most prestigious member of the BCS department and a former school dean, resigned in protest. Florian Jaeger remains a professor at the University of Rochester. President Seligman initially resisted calls to launch another investigation of Jaeger's conduct, but relented due to a public outcry including a hunger strike and coverage by the New York Times. Jaeger is temporarily on leave (a voluntary move on his part) pending the results of an external investigation. Unfortunately, this investigation appears to be a sham. Rather than settle with the complainants, the school has chosen to fight Jaeger's victims in court. Although the complainants would like to cooperate with the school's investigation, they cannot do so while engaged in a legal battle. Thus, the University is once again "investigating" Jaeger while excluding the primary witnesses! In addition to signing, you can directly contact the school through email or a phone call.

Verso Books & the New Left Review, Stop Supporting Gopal Balakrishnan
As this Buzzfeed article makes clear, Professor Gopal Balakrishnan of the University of California Santa Cruz has a terrible record of abuse of power, with at least two people speaking on the record about sexual assaults, many more speaking to harassment and classroom misogyny, and a string of Title IX complaints dating back to at least 2006. Verso Books and New Left Review, we the undersigned ask that you stop supporting Professor Balakrishnan and remove him from the New Left Review's Editorial Committee. If you do not make this change, we pledge to boycott both Verso and NLR: we cannot, in good conscience, support institutions that stand with abusers, however radical they purport to be. As the "largest independent, radical publishing house in the English-speaking world" Verso Books and its parent organization the New Left Review have a responsibility to radicals and agitators worldwide. As publishers of major feminist and Marxist feminist work, you have the opportunity to show leadership and that you can "walk the walk" by withdrawing support from a known serial abuser. Continuing to support Gopal Balakrishnan sends a clear message that you are on the side of the powerful and comfortable, of institutional repression, and of injustice. We ask you to make the right decision, remove Professor Balakrishnan from the New Left Review Committee, no longer publish him at Verso Books, and stop giving him a platform at NLR/Verso events.
Petition to Kamala D. Harris, Dianne Feinstein
A Final Stop to Sexual Assault in the Armed Forces!!!
Dear Senator Kamala Harris and Senator Dianne Feinstein, We want you Senator Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein to author a bill reforming the National Defense Authorization Act and to change the court martialing system from Armed forces personnel to a Random Public Jury. Sexual assault has been a problem forever and this is continued to be a problem in the United States military. 14,900 women in the military have been sexually assaulted in the last year. Also, every 98 seconds someone is sexually assaulted, and every 1-6 women in america have been sexually assaulted. Females ages 16-19 are 4 times more likely to be sexually assaulted than everyone else. The root causes of sexual assault in the military are the "man box", power roles in the workplace, and the objectification of women. Our action plan is going to make the consequences for the perpetrators more severe. It is addressing the objectification of women and unjust consequences. It will be more fair because the people in the community will have more power and say in what happens to the perpetrator. It will be harder to get away with sexual assault and will hopefully make cases and rates of sexual assault in the Armed forces go down. We want to author the bill because, as U.S. senators, you have power to author a bill reforming the National Defense Authorization Act for the fiscal year (2020-2021), introducing a new stricter policy that punishes the sex offenders. We want you to author a bill changing the National Defense Authorization Act by to altering the court martialing system from Armed forces personnel to a Random Public Jury. Thank you, Delilah Mays-Triplett, Andres Kuri, Luke Garrett, and Peter Silveira Our Petition does not want to see the total reform of court martialing, because of the problems it may face for the self-sufficiency during times of War. This petition was created to reform court martialing in cases of sexual assault and sexual assault only.
