Petition to Voters, Welsh Government, The People
Force Joel Osteen to pay back any and all government aid funded by taxpayers.
Joel Osteen and his church recently received over four million dollars in taxpayer-funded government aid. For his church that does not pay taxes. If you believe this is unfair to taxpayers, please stand with us. This is not an issue of religion, this is not an issue of who you believe in. This is an issue of fairness. His business is the church, which apparently is doing quite well to afford this man a home and estate that is several million dollars. Whilst constantly riding in private jets and doing things normally reserved for the richest of people. This man is no longer a servant of Christ or his people, but a servant to the almighty dollar. It’s clear that he is manipulating the system to maintain massive amounts of wealth. This is incredibly unfair to people that follow him, as they may think what he’s doing is justified in some sick way. Our government and this man should be held accountable for this gross overpayment and blatant disregard for taxpayer’s well-being. While the average American is struggling with covid, bills, work, and every other daily stress, this man is banking over four million dollars of our money. If you believe this is not to aid in his message of love and kindness of man and woman in the vision of God, or you simply believe his acts are unfair and downright slimy, please sign this petition to force him to pay back any government aid that was recieved. Thank you.

STOP WISCONSIN'S DCF INEQUITABLE PROCUREMENT PRACTICES AGAINST FRESH START FAMILY SERVICES
Background The Department of Children and Families (DCF) issued a request for proposal (RFP) for case management services for the Milwaukee child welfare system. Consistent with state procurement requirements, DCF is conducting a competitive RFP procurement process for the next round of these contracts. DCF administers the child welfare system in Milwaukee County through the DCF Division of Milwaukee Child Protective Services (DMCPS). DMCPS contracts with external organizations to carry out some of its child welfare functions, including case management services for families involved in the child welfare system. The contracted agencies play a key role in advancing the department’s efforts to dramatically increase the proportion of children supported in their homes and communities. Last Fall, the department held four listening sessions in Milwaukee to gather input and feedback about the case management and family support services that DMCPS provides through contracted partners. That information was used to restructure the contracting process and delivery of child welfare services in Milwaukee County. The changes made to the contract structure seek to increase the involvement of relatively small, community-based organizations – including minority-owned organizations – in the delivery of child welfare-related services to families. As we heard at the listening sessions and in discussions with stakeholders in Milwaukee, small community-based organizations are often known and trusted by members of the community and are often composed of culturally competent and racially diverse staff with knowledge of and connections to the local families and communities they serve. Key system changes incorporated in the Milwaukee case management RFP that create enhanced opportunities for relatively small, community-based organizations to play a role in providing child welfare services in Milwaukee County include: 1. The opportunity for organizations to form and submit a proposal as a consortium, which may be particularly helpful for small organizations with expertise in some, but not all, of the functions required in the RFP. 2. Explicit guidance in the RFP that contractors are encouraged to subcontract with small community-based organizations located within the Milwaukee communities where children and families are being served. 3. A lower minimum caseload size for contracted case management agencies of 250 children rather than 500 children, giving smaller organizations the opportunity to serve as a case management agency. 4. The availability of a start-up period with funding resources for agencies not currently under contract with DMCPS for these services. 5. Establishment of a cost-based rather than case-based payment approach, which reduces the complexity and uncertainty of the revenue flow to contractors, which can be particularly helpful for small organizations. In addition, the department plans to issue a future procurement contract for DMCPS Early Intervention Services to maintain children safely in their homes and prevent out-of-home removal. Delivery of Early Intervention Services may also be well-suited to relatively small, community-based organizations. ### Problem I wanted to inform you all that the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families has made a decision in regards to the RFP referenced in their press release. DCF said they intended to use the results of the RFP to award up to three contracts, but something happened. Given that only three (3) organizations responded to the RFP: CSSW, SaintA, and Fresh Start, it is disappointing that the relatively small, community-based, minority business was not selected. The Department's intent is to award all 2,500 children to the other agencies. Fresh Start Family Services is protesting the awarding of this contract for a number of reasons. 1. The evaluation criterion DCF provided to evaluators was biased. As a result, causing relatively smaller, community-based minority businesses to score lower on the evaluation and gave the current vendors a competitive advantage. 2. Fresh Start has produced exceptional outcomes in the areas of child safety, well-being, and permanency for our clients over the past 18 years. 3. In a community where 66% to 73% of the children, youth, and families that have been served by our local child protective service system over the past 22 years are African American, DCF/DMCPS has never engaged a qualified African-American business as a Case Management Service Agency. 4. DCF held four listening sessions that misled the community into thinking that they were committed to working with a smaller community-based agency as a Case Management Services agency by using their feedback and input to restructure the contract and delivery of services.

Petition to Meals on wheels and, The world hunger program
I want to solve world poverty and hunger.
I care about this because no one should ever be hungry in our community. You can help millions of young boys and girls and even adults if you give them some old clothes that dont fit or a little meal, spare change and even a kind word helps! This would make poverty less common in the United States and more people can have jobs. You can also give them a mask and other things that help fight Covid-19. It will help them save their money and help them be less cold during the winter and be less starving. I hope you sign this petition to help poverty in the United states. Thank you for reading!
Petition to British Airways
Stop British airways moving Acc- ldn to Gatwick airport from Heathrow airport
British Airways from March 2021 are to relocate all incoming and outbound flights on the Accra - London route from its current terminal at Heathrow Terminal 3 to Gatwick Airport. For many years British Airways have always hindered the Accra route by either giving Ghana terrible planes, or putting Ghana at the very last Gate in the terminal. By putting us in Gatwick it will now will take far longer to reach town and practically unfathomable if you are to descend into central london via car. Unlike other African countries like Nigeria, it is about time that we speak up for ourselves and take a stance against injustice towards the African routes. Please sign this petition for there to be a change before this route comes into effect from March 2021
Petition to Sarasota County School Board -, Dr. Asplen, Karen Rose, Tom Edwards, Shirley Brown, Jane Goodwin, Bridget Ziegler, Teachers & Students
Give Students and Teachers adequate recourses - Stop treating them as just statistics
Sarasota County Schools has a growing problem regarding the disbursement of resources and material for both teachers and students. The county for decades now, has been treating educators and students alike as mere pawns and disregarding them as just a number. A Statistic. Through out time - The Board of Sarasota County Schools of which oversee’s the advancement of our county has been ignoring what teachers and students most need now. Resources and help. Teachers have been left to essentially teach two classes at once with little to no time to prepare. They are expected to carry out material in a rushed manner, and are expected to hand out test’s and exams that come to the benefit of nobody. Major exams such as midterms, benchmarks, and finals measure little to nothing of a students knowledge or capability on the topic - instead are a measure or ‘statistic’ of what the county is expected to produce. From there, the board and state will work to address those specific groups of students. The Main point is - This help shouldn’t be given only when a demographic of students and teachers are in a critical situation - this should come standard, as we are the Second best county in regards to education - Within our state being one of the best in the South. Students and teachers shouldn’t be treated as Statistics - and the board can overlook the dispersal of resources, material, and help needed adequately to schools across the county. Including some of the counties ignored counties; including those in lower socioeconomic areas. Students need newer technology to exceed just state requirements - ESOL students should receive updated and interactive curriculum to effectively teach language - Teachers need time for planning and shouldn’t be expected to carry the weight of the county on their backs just so that the county may retain a decent reputation at the expense of not just students, but teachers mental health and physical health.

Let’s help these teachers and social workers get the salary they deserve!
Petition to Governor Murphy
New Jersey Landlord - Immediate Rent Relief!
ATTENTION ALL NEW JERSEY LANDLORDS ARE YOU STRUGGLING BECAUSE YOUR TENANT IS NOT PAYING YOU RENT? THIS PETITION IS A CALL TO ALL LANDLORDS TO UNITE AND REQUEST ASSITANCE FROM THE GOVERNOR OF NEW JERSEY! Rental homeowners (Landlords) have been severely affected financially by the “eviction moratorium” issued by the New Jersey Governor Philip Murphy in an Executive Order 106 dated March 19, 2020 initially for 2 months, which immediately suspended eviction throughout the state during the COVID-19 pandemic. But the “eviction moratorium” keeps getting extended every month with no end. Majority of Landlords invested their hard-earned life savings in rental properties in the hope of sustainable income. Tenants have misused the “eviction moratorium” by stopping the payment of rent. The “eviction moratorium” has put the Landlords in a severely distressed situation. The mortgage relief that has been offered to the Landlords is inadequate, subject to eligibility constraints and is not applicable to all landlords – thus making this program highly ineffective for majority of the Landlords. The Landlords still have obligations such as mortgage, property taxes, insurance, maintenance, and utilities which may lead to foreclosures. They should also be offered some relief as rental income might be a significant source of their income. On the other hand, the tenants are getting all the relief from the government in the form stimulus payments, unemployment checks, along with an additional $300-$600 per week in benefits and yet, not paying their rent. The concern is even after COVID-19 emergency ends, the best outcome for a Landlord seems to be the tenant eviction but there is no certainty that they will even see a dime of the rent they have lost over many many months! In our personal situation, our tenant owes us over $18k (net of their security deposit) and this balance will keep growing! Our tenant has no intention of paying us even though they are receiving significant amounts in relief from the government. Government should also kindly consider ending the “eviction moratorium” and provide some financial relief to the Landlords in the form of reimbursement of rent unpaid by the tenants and tax credit for the township property taxes. We request all landlords to join us and sign this petition which will then be presented to the New Jersey State Governor for sympathetic consideration and relief to Landlords.
