Protect Safe and Accessible Abortion
The overturning of Roe V Wade was just the beginning of the battle to protect reproductive rights. Most abortions are done through Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved medications and new lawsuits threaten access to those approved medications to millions of women. Health and reproductive rights advocates fear many will turn to unsafe, self-induced abortions if access to these medications are banned. If you believe access to these medications should be protected, add your voice to the petition calling on Congress to act to enshrine access no matter where you live. As reported by the Guttmacher Institute, over 90% of abortion patients in the US obtain their procedure in the first trimester, with the majority of them opting for medication abortion. Medication abortion, using the FDA approved combination of mifepristone and misoprostol for up to 10 weeks of pregnancy. If you believe access to safe and legal abortion is fundamental to reproductive health and freedom by calling on Congress to act to make mifepristone accessible to all individuals seeking safe and effective medication abortion regardless of their location or financial status. My name is Star and in 2021, I had an abortion. I went to a clinic in Knoxville, Tennessee where they gave me the abortion pills (mifepristone and misopristol) to end my pregnancy, but due to me being almost 12 weeks pregnant, the pills didn't work. I then headed to Charlotte to get a surgical abortion. I was scared both times but I was more relieved than anything because I was able to get the help I needed. Even though I was able to get the healthcare I sought, others in my position will not be able to if Congress bans mifepristone. Mifepristone is safe and should be accessible to all who seek it. I stand with any and all people who seek abortions and you should too. If you believe that people deserve safe and legal abortion care, please sign this petition. Banning abortions only bans safe abortions.

Pres. Biden and Congress: Ensure Afghan women’s rights alongside peace with the Taliban
My name is Nahid Fattahi and I know what’s it like to be marginalized and traumatized because of my gender. I am deeply worried that unless the global community comes together, the lives of so many women in Afghanistan will be at risk. And I’m here begging the world to join me in calling on the American government to #SafeguardAfghanWomenRights and #StandWithAfghanWomen In the past 19 years, Afghan women have made so much progress and have been both empowered and free. Afghan women want their freedom to be guaranteed and sustained alongside peace and a full ceasefire with the Taliban. That’s why I’m asking for your signature today, demanding that U.S. leaders don’t sacrifice the rights and lives of women in any peace deal with the Taliban. We also demand that women and their perspectives be meaningfully included in all aspects of the peace process, in accordance with the Women, Peace, and Security Act of 2017. The people of Afghanistan are yearning for peace, as the war in Afghanistan continues destroying lives due to the direct consequences of violence and the war-induced breakdown of public health, security, and infrastructure. But peace with the Taliban can only be concluded when the peace agreements are backed by measurable indicators ensuring women will have access to education, mobility, healthcare, and justice. The peace agreement must explicitly guarantee the following: All girls and women will be allowed education in schools and universities exactly as is currently in the big cities of Afghanistan. Including having the freedom to participate in student exchange programs, and other scholarship and fellowship opportunities Universities will not be segregated Women will have political participation freedom: Right to vote and hold office At least 30% of parliamentarian seats must go to women. Women will have the freedom to work anywhere they desire without having to have permission of a male guardian Women will have the freedom to travel anywhere they desire without having to have permission of a male guardian Women must continue to be a part of the mass media and entertainment industry. Freedom of the press and freedom of speech must be continued As a survivor of child marriage, I advocate for having legal frameworks to protect girls and women from violence. The Elimination of Violence Against Women Law (EVAW law) is very vulnerable and susceptible to compromise in the peace process. The Afghan women need a guarantee that their rights will not be negotiated with the Taliban. The EVAW law of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan enacting by a Presidential decree must be safeguarded. Stand with us, the women of Afghanistan, and ask President Biden, and the American government to work with us to make sure that Afghanistan’s peace that we desperately need can be achieved and sustained alongside our human rights. Please sign this petition to make sure Afghan women’s rights are guaranteed and sustained alongside the potential peace with the Taliban.
Stop Abuse in Women's Soccer / Football!
My name is Baraya Louis and I am a former Haiti Women’s National team player. I grew up in Haiti with the dream of playing football for my country in the Women’s World Cup. What should have been a dream come true turned into a nightmare. At the national football academy, I realized that I and other girls and boys as young as 12 were at constant risk of sexual harassment and abuse by the president of Haiti’s national football federation, Yves Jean-Bart, other leaders and coaches—who were supposedly protecting children. Around the world, athletes begin their careers as children. Sexual predators in sport federations take advantage of our aspirations as athletes to abuse and silence players. As athletes, survivors, and whistleblowers we have spoken up and reported the abuses to FIFA, the global governing body for football. Instead of giving us protection and a way to safely play and report sexual abuse, FIFA protected itself and exposed victims to death threats. Former Haiti football federation president Yves Jean-Bart and senior staff were suspended by FIFA in 2020, and Jean Bart was banned for life in November 2020 after dozens of victims gave evidence against him. In February 2023, the lifetime ban on Jean-Bart was lifted by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, betraying survivors who risked our lives to report abuse. Football leaders in Haiti and worldwide earned power and millions in funding from FIFA to advance the women’s game. Instead, those leaders stole money, and our wages as professionals, and abused child athletes. The financial abuse of female players and the lack of proper pay helps enable the systemic sexual exploitation that we players endured for decades. Please sign and share my petition demanding FIFA live up to its own rules, and provide: safe reporting of abuse, remedy for survivors, and equal pay for female players, including prize money at the Women’s World Cup. Support #AthletesAgainstAbuse by helping me raise 100,000 signatures to tell FIFA female athletes deserve pay equality, safety, protection and justice!*Baraya is a pseudonym that means "Brave Girl". #AthletesAgainstAbuse
norm of north in helluva boss
While the decision to include a character like Norm of the North in "Helluva Boss" would ultimately depend on the show's creators and writers, here are some playful reasons why it could be an interesting addition: Crossover Appeal: Norm of the North's presence could attract fans from his own franchise, introducing them to the world of "Helluva Boss."Unconventional Character Dynamics: The clash between Norm's family-friendly persona and the dark, chaotic world of "Helluva Boss" could create unique and humorous interactions.Fish-Out-of-Water Comedy: Seeing a character like Norm navigating the underworld could lead to amusing situations and comedic misunderstandings.Surprising Character Development: The show could explore unexpected character growth and arcs for Norm as he adapts to his new surroundings.Thematic Commentary: Norm's presence could serve as a commentary on the contrast between family-friendly content and adult-oriented themes.Potential for Hilarity: The show's writers could find clever ways to subvert Norm's family-friendly image for comedic effect.Ultimately, including Norm of the North in "Helluva Boss" would be a creative choice, and it could offer a fresh twist to the show's dynamic.

Refund Request for GHC Tickets: Upholding the Essence of Inclusivity
We, the concerned attendees of GHC 2023, kindly request a refund for our tickets to the event. Despite its advertising as an inclusive gathering centered on women and non-binary people in tech, we have observed a significant presence of male attendees at the event. Our concerns extend beyond gender representation. Unfortunately, some women attendees have shared distressing stories, including instances of sexual harassment, physical altercations, and inappropriate behavior in queues. These experiences not only contradict the principles of a safe and inclusive environment but also undermine the essence of GHC as a celebration and empowerment platform for underrepresented individuals. While it is important to emphasize that attendees of all genders are welcome to support this celebration, it is disheartening to witness male attendees showing evident interest solely in the career fair section. This raises concerns about whether their presence aligns with the core purpose and spirit behind GHC. To ensure transparency and fairness in this petition, we would like to present some relevant facts and statistics: 1. Advertising Claims: The promotional material for GHC 2023 explicitly highlighted its focus on women and non-binary individuals in tech. By doing so, it created an expectation among ticket buyers that they would be partaking in an environment predominantly composed of these underrepresented groups. 2. Male Attendance: Numerous eyewitness accounts from various sources indicate a notable number of male participants at GHC 2023. While we acknowledge that men can contribute positively to promoting diversity and inclusion, their overwhelming presence compromises the intended atmosphere where women and non-binary individuals feel empowered by being surrounded by peers who share similar experiences. 3. Essence Undermined: The career fair section serves as one crucial aspect where companies actively seek out talented women and non-binary candidates who may otherwise face barriers within the industry due to systemic biases. However, with male attendees primarily focusing on job searching rather than engaging meaningfully with the community, it dilutes both its significance and effectiveness. We firmly believe that upholding inclusivity is essential not only for fostering diversity but also for creating an environment where marginalized voices can be amplified. By requesting a refund, we aim to send a clear message that GHC should remain true to its advertised purpose and provide an empowering space for women and non-binary individuals in tech. Thank you for your attention and consideration. Together, let us work towards creating an environment where all underrepresented individuals feel celebrated and supported in the tech industry.
