Don't Force Travelers To Pay For Overhead Bins
United Airlines wants travelers to pay to use overhead bins. Sign this petition to tell them to stop nickel-and-diming their customers. According to ABC News, "United Airlines just announced a new ticket option called 'Basic Economy,' banning the use of overhead bins for luggage." Since when is it a luxury to travel with a change of clothes? What will parents of small children do, when a diaper bag alone is too big to fit under the seat in front of them? ABC also reports that "United expects the plan to raise $1 billion for the company by 2020." Last year, United brought in somewhere between $4.5 billion and $7.3 billion in profit. This company doesn't need the extra cash – but we, its customers, do. Other airlines will be watching to see if customers revolt against the overhead bin charge. If we let this one slide, you can bet that nearly every other airline on the market will start charging for overhead bin space. Please sign this petition to tell United Airlines to drop its plan to charge for overhead bin space.

Tell the SF Board of Supervisors: Fully Fund "Kindergarten to College"!
San Francisco has an unusual opportunity to help every family get on the path to sending their kids to college. Mayor Gavin Newsom has proposed a groundbreaking program called Kindergarten to College which would provide $50 to every family that enrolls their children in San Francisco's Unified School District. Families eligible for free or reduced price lunch would get $100, and EARN has already raised $120,000 to provide an additional match for families. But the program was recently cut from the budget. We need your help to get it restored! The Mayor heard about the proposed budget cut and is making a full court press to have Kindergarten to College added back. We can play an important role in helping him succeed. We need to let City Hall know that we've seen firsthand the power of matched savings. And we need to let them know immediately - intense negotiations over the budget are underway right now. Please sign the petition below to contact the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. The sooner you sign, the better our chances -- in other words, sign today!
