Request to United Airlines for free air travel for dogs rescued from meat trade in S.Korea
Room for a little one? Request to United Airlines for free air travel for dogs rescued from meat trade in South Korea! To: Directors, Management, Staff; and Captains and Crew! A little help can go a long way, and we are hoping to get a ‘flying start’ with a little help from your airline. In the fight to end the dog and cat meat trades in South Korea, bit by bit the volunteers involved are managing to get many dog farms shut down. Bit by bit they are saving these animals from the appalling lives and even more hideous deaths that they would otherwise be facing in the name of a ‘cheap’ meal: one with no animal welfare commitments or responsibilities attached to it. https://youtu.be/2uNich4uYjM The steps taken to end this trade, and the rescues of these dogs is all being done by the inspiring success, hard work and determination of those caring volunteers in South Korea, who personally negotiate with the farm owners, and the authorities, and who personally rescue these animals in the face of unimaginably distressing scenes and physical danger. And, are they going to stop? No! But, United Airlines, here is where we need your help: there is a limit to the number of homes that the volunteers can find in their shelters in South Korea, and they will soon need to arrange transportation out of that country, to others, where new homes can be found for these rescued animals. Can you help them by providing free air space on any of your planes that fly out of South Korea? Each place offered will be a life saved. Additionally, your company’s willingness and help will be seen as a clear and important message, to those who are still trying to carry on with this unacceptable meat trade in South Korea, that more and more Korean nationals, and more and more people across the world, will not ‘look the other way’, but are willing to do right in this fight against animal cruelty. Can we tell the world that you will help with this ‘Flight for Compassion’! ------------------------------------------ For information about rescue mission of Nami Kim and her team visit: https://www.facebook.com/savekoreandogs/ http://namikim.org/
Petition to Malcolm Dougherty, Watsonville Police Department, CalTrans, Watsonville City Council
Enforce Pedestrian/Bicyclist Safety On Main Street in Watsonville California
My Mother was Struck and Killed on September 11, 2017 while crossing a crosswalk at the intersection of Auto Center Drive and Main Street by a Vehicle. The car in question was driving beyond the speed limit and in sync with another vehicle who many witnesses state they looked to be racing/driving irratically at the time my mother was struck. This is still under investigation. However,this is not the first pedestrian fatality on Main Street and is not the last since my mother's death. We need to fix this problem now. There are no traffic cameras at all on Main street and people know that so they take advantage of how they drive. You can go out there and see this first hand. Main Street is a straight away street which is very visible just like WPD officer ridgeway stated "the straight stretch of road offered a clear line of sight that allows pedestrians to see vehicles approaching from a good distance" This also goes to the drivers who can visibly see a pedestrian crossing from a distance as well!! Pedestrians don't get to be at fault just because their not here to tell their side of the story. People need to take accountability for their actions and the City Of Watsonville need to take corrective measures to assure the safety of the Watsonville Community. We go out often where my mother was killed and we see speeding and cars racing right before our eyes and no ones stopped or ticketed. No patrolling. I dont know what the end result for us will be. Theres nothing we can do to bring our loved one back but we can prevent this tragedy from happening to someone else.There needs to be corrective measures taken by our city and WPD ASAP. All Lives Matter!!!

END ABUSIVE, UNETHICAL & UNCONSTITUTIONAL TOLL ROAD PRACTICES
DONATE: https://www.gofundme.com/texastolllawsuit-com LEARN MORE: http://www.texastolllawsuit.com GET INVOLVED: https://www.facebook.com/texastollwayslawsuit/ This petition is the result of the backlash building against Texas Toll Roads. For 20 years. The State of Texas has allowed and encouraged the development of a complicated, abusive and convoluted Toll Road infrastructure. Arguably "negligent" legislation, enacted by lawmakers in Austin has enabled regional toll operators to "create" their own, individual operating regulations - many of which are unique to each regional toll system. This "lack of control and regulation" has directly resulted in a Toll Road System that is ABUSIVE to citizens. The operating structure of the Toll Road System across the entire State of Texas MUST change. Current state laws do not adequately regulate Toll Road Operations or protect citizens from the "pitfalls" of the current laws, regulations and operating nature of Toll Infrastructure. The result - True harm is coming to Texas citizens in the form of egregious fines, harassment, loss of driving privileges, an inability to register vehicles, arrests financial abuse and other circumstances that are due, not because Texans are outlaws trying to abuse the Toll system but instead, caused directly by the lack of proper regulation and oversight to prevent a Toll System that is NOT citizen Friendly. There is a general consensus among ALL Texans is that lawmakers are turning a blind eye to the facts presented to them. They are unwilling to address the pleas of the people and the people feel helpless and violated. There is no charter within the Texas Constitution enabling or allowing our government to create, encourage and operate a mode of transportation that is incompatible with the Article 1, Section 2 of the Constitution. "All political power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their benefit" Therefore, we the people of the state of Texas are informing you, our elected officials, that the Current system of the Toll Road Infrastructure in Texas is NOT operating in a mode that is strictly beneficial to the citizens of Texas. Instead, lawmakers have created a system fraught with abusive, corrupt, unethical and Unconstitutional practices. These abuses and non-beneficial practices have repeatedly been presented to State Lawmakers who have ignored us, refused to listen to us and failed to act in accordance with the very charter of your office under the State Constitution. TOLL ROADS ARE NOT CITIZEN FRIENDLY! We the people DEMAND that State legislators listen to, and address the litany of Unconstitutional, Unethical, abusive and non-beneficial "causes" of Unrest surrounding Toll Roads in Texas. WHAT WILL RESULT As an elected official, you have a responsibility to sensibly look out for the best interests of the people, to act in a manner that is in accordance with the best interests of the People and therefore, to correct the egregious operating concerns outlined herein. If you fail to act, We The People are prepared to file what may become the largest Class Action Lawsuit in Texas History in Federal Court to seek legal remuneration including injunctive, compensatory, special and incidental damages.
Petition to Donald Trump, Paul Ryan, Elaine Chao, Mitch McConnell, Donald Trump
Trump wants to cut AMTRAK service to 23 states and Canada. Help us save their trains!
Rail travel is a vital link in our nation’s transportation system. Long distance routes play an especially vital role in connecting cities and towns across the country to major regional centers on the coasts and in Canada. The Trump administration’s proposed budget seeks to cut funding to support long-distance routes -- effectively ending service to 23 states who rely on those routes for service. The Trump administration believes that rail service should be treated differently than other public transportation. The idea that AMTRAK should be cut off from public funds is hypocritical and absurd. Our federal government provides billions in subsidies for roads and highways and airports. Rail travel should not be treated differently -- especially when rail travel is more fuel efficient and environmentally friendly. What’s worse is Trump’s budget also seeks to cut subsidies for airports serving rural destinations. This leaves rural residents without many transportation options. This proposal is a disastrous double-whammy for Americans living in small cities and rural areas from coast to coast. And the repercussions of the service elimination will be felt even in the larger cities, as they lose easy rail access to smaller cities. We can do better than this. Our government should be focused on modernizing rail travel between cities, like our rival China, instead of decimating it. Sign and share this petition to send a message to Donald Trump and his Republican Congress: Hands off AMTRAK!

Save the Las Vegas Alternative Fuel Permit program
In the City of Las Vegas - there are 1000s of people who are dependent on the electric charging stations at City Hall Parking and surrounding areas. People commute everyday from all over to work who depend on these chargers to get home. This year, I bought an electric car as a project to start a car sharing program EVLV - that is dedicated to getting Electric Vehicles in the hands of those who cannot afford to buy one - but would benefit from access. The Alternative Fuel program helps its users so much with costs of owning an electric vehicle with incentives like "Free Parking" at all the meters around the city, Free Charging for users at city hall (24 hr access). This has helped tremendously because I know that even though I made the decision to invest money in Electric upfront - the possibilities of the long term benefits are endless. The city supplements this program by charging the users a small fee of $20 a year to maintain the program in accordance with the easement agreement with NV energy. Recently the city has gone in a different direction - decided to partner with an alternative partner and small business to put independent solar charging stations around the city. While this is progressive and is positive - canceling the already in place Alternative Fuel program is a step backwards. Please join me and the 1000s of users who depend on this program to commute to work and help impact the environment of Las Vegas and the world to help save this program and show that we NEED this program to survive. I am one voice - but with your signature we can keep moving forward and continue to making a stride to help the city and its users see the benefits of clean energy.
Petition to Dr.H.Bliss Murphy Cancer Clinic, The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador
Designate parking spaces close to the hospital for cancer patients receiving treatment.
There is no parking made available for cancer patients at the Dr.H.Bliss Murphy cancer clinic. What can the Cancer clinic do? • Provide a designated parking area for cancer patientswith enough spaces( we are looking for 25 spots). Use a boomgate and/or apermit system to make sure only eligible patients canpark there, and enforce it. Cars can be towed and tickets issued just like the blue zones. • Use a permit system such as windscreen stickers,swipe cards or dashboard passes, with expiry datesor color coding to show patients with currentappointments. Having a designated parking area close to the hospital for cancer patients who are receiving treatment is vital.We are fighting the biggest battle of our lives and having the stress of parking should not be one of them. I was late for an appointment at the cancer clinic because it took me 45 minutes to find a place to park.The long walk to the entrance of the hospital was exhausting.I see a lot of people who are receiving treatment at the Dr.H.Bliss Murphy cancer clinic and many are seniors.This parking problem has to be addressed because it has been a problem for these patients for years.Designated parking is needed for cancer patients and those spots need to be close to the entrance of the cancer clinic. I started this petition because many cancer patients talked about the problem with the parking and how frustrating it is to find a place to park going to the Dr.H.Bliss Murphy cancer clinic. I hope the hospital can designate an area for cancer patients close to the clinic.It would make this journey more easier on the patients. Another part of this advocacy we have voiced our concern is Smoking.It should be prohibited from the cancer clinic and the HSC.People are smoking in the entrances and then throwing cigarette butts to the ground.Take a walk in front of the cancer clinic one day and you will see just that...A beautiful garden there but sadly many butts on the ground. Even though there is an announcement stating smoking is not permitted on the grounds people still are doing just that. Hospitals and clinics should be Smoke free zones.

Build the Bridge and Bridge the Gap: A gateway between Endwell and Vestal
Within the Greater Binghamton area is a Transportation and Community Gap. That Gap exists between the Communities of Endwell (Town of Union), the Town of Vestal and access to State Route 17 / future Interstate 86. This division is created by the lack of a bridge over the Susquehanna River between Endwell and Vestal and creates unnecessary car and truck congestion on the Vestal Parkway and unnecessary travel distance to Vestal from Endwell and return. We believe the Hamlet of Endwell (Town of Union) and the Town of Vestal should have a bridge that provides auto, bicycle and walking capability between the two communities connecting Hooper Road in Endwell to the Sycamore or Africana Road area in the Town of Vestal. Additionally, East and West access (on and Off) to I-86 would be provided from Vestal. A current westbound exit would remain for Endwell while a new eastbound exit would be added from I-86. Additionally, a westbound entrance to I-86 from Endwell would be added leaving the current eastbound entrance from the George F Highway. A multipurpose bridge would allow a 24 x 7 connection and reliable access for everyone to commute between the communities and services offered. Additionally, this would also alleviate congestion within the Vestal Parkway corridor and also allow better for access between the communities and the highway. This proposal would benefit residents of both Vestal and Endwell, as well as the entire Greater Binghamton community and transportation and emergency response system. This solution would: - Reduce traffic congestion through and around the Vestal Parkway, (Old) Vestal road and Route 201 areas. - Provide quicker and more convenient access to Interstate 86 for residents, out of area shoppers and trucking. - Reduce the number of trucks and other vehicles traveling Route 434 / Vestal parkway. - Add a necessary alternate route for emergency vehicles and residents to exit or enter both communities when other roads are flooded or blocked by unexpected circumstances. - Generate new opportunities for residents on both sides of the river. - Generate and Expand new opportunities and investment created by better community access. - Increase patronage for local businesses within both communities. - Increase business patronage through better access for highway travelers. - Promote healthy lifestyles by creating a bicycle and pedestrian lane to bridge the communities together. - Reduce distances residents must travel to get to either community. - Decrease emissions and improve air quality. - Connect communities and better showcase the communities. - Better meet 21st Century transportation and community needs. We, the undersigned residents, respectfully request that each of our elected public officials including, local supervisors and boards, state and federal representatives make building a bridge connecting Endwell (Town of Union) and the Town of Vestal your highest priority and that you work diligently to get approvals, funding and construction completed within the next three to five years.

Petition to Ashley Morales
Change the transportation Policy for SASD elementary schools
This petition is to show the Shippensburg Area School District School Board the need to change Transportation Policy 206. Currently, the district has Transportation Policy 206 in place which states "The Board shall determine the school attendance areas of the District and shall expect the students within each area to attend the school so designated" and therefore, if students attend a daycare provider, the daycare must be in their assigned school zone to be eligible for district transportation." Shippensburg Area School District is home to three elementary schools, Nancy Grayson, James Burd and Grace B. Luhrs, but this problem is only an issue for the elementary schools Nancy Grayson and James Burd. The majority of State approved daycare centers in Shippensburg lie within the James Burd lines leaving families of Nancy Grayson limited options. With your support we are asking the board to amend the policy to allow students to attend the schools where the reside REGARDLESS of where the daycare center is located. By changing this policy the district would be responsible for transporting those students attending a licensed daycare center that is located within the Borough of Shippensburg to either elementary school. This will give families more choices when selecting a childcare provider.
