Petition to William P. Barr, Antonio Guterres, Michelle Bachelet
Re-open the Department of Justice's investigation into the shooting death of Miriam Carey.
On October 3, 2013 Miriam Iris Carey was shot and killed by unidentified officers of assigned to the United States Capitol Police and Secret Service Uniform Division in Washington, DC. Miriam was UNARMED with her 13 month baby in the backseat of her car at the time of the shooting. The preliminary and final investigations performed by the Metropolitan Police Department indicated Miriam violated no laws. [Secret Service ‘Willful’ Violations of Policies Caused Death of Miriam Carey http://buff.ly/1KsOjLM] Since that fateful day, the United States Department of Justice has refused to bring criminal or civil rights charges against the officers despite having clear evidence, they acted in a 'willful' manner. To this day, unlike other similar police shootings where President Barack Obama, the United States Congress and Department of Justice called for and insisted there be FULL public disclosure of the documents and facts have refused provide FULL public disclosure of the documents and facts in Miriam's case. WorldNet Daily ('Smoking-gun documents prove unarmed mom wrongly killed' http://www.wnd.com/2015/06/smoking-gun-documents-prove-unarmed-mom-wrongly-killed/) and the Washington Post (How Miriam Carey's U-turn at a White House Checkpoint Led to her Death http://www.washingtonpost.com/sf/style/2014/11/26/how-miriam-careys-u-turn-at-a-white-house-checkpoint-led-to-her-death/) investigations raises serious questions about the government's official explanation about the shooting. Please join us in petitioning the White House, United States Congress and the United States Department of Justice to re-open the Department of Justice's investigation into the 'avoidable' shooting death of Miriam Iris Carey by United States Capitol Police and Secret Service and for the United States Congress to hold parallel Congressional Hearings about the surrounding circumstances of the shooting. Please join the Carey Family as we seek FULL public disclosure of the documents and the facts surrounding Miriam's 'avoidable' death by signing this petition.

Petition to Gavin Newsom
Racial Justice for AAPIs:
Appoint an Asian American for CA Attorney General #API4AG
Governor Newsom will be appointing a new attorney general in a couple of weeks. Several Asian American Pacific Islanders are qualified to serve. We applaud Governor Newsom’s recent appointments of the first Latino U.S. Senator and first African American Secretary of State. His next appointment should rightfully be an AAPI. Please sign and share this petition to urge Gov. Newsom to appoint an AAPI as California's next attorney general. The State of AAPI Leadership Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have long been passed over for top roles no matter how qualified we are. Pacific Islanders are also severely underrepresented in elected and appointed positions in California and nationally. While President-elect Biden’s appointed Cabinet may be historic in diversity, it is incomplete. We are deeply disappointed that this will be the FIRST time in 20 years where qualified AAPIs are excluded from Cabinet secretary positions regardless of party affiliation. This sets a dangerous precedent that diversity does not include AAPIs. True diversity and inclusion start at the very top and require government leaders that reflect the population they serve. Read here and here for our Congressional leaders’ responses. *******Take action now******* We call on Governor Newsom to make history by breaking the glass ceilings for AAPIs - an important step toward addressing a historic underrepresentation of AAPIs in leadership roles in this state. We know that while AAPIs were dominating the legal profession, they are the least represented of all ethnic groups in top legal leadership roles. Click here to view the breakdown. In a year where diversity, equity, and inclusion are focal, we must tackle this racial inequality. We strongly urge Governor Newsom to appoint an AAPI leader as the next California Attorney General.

HELP SAVE DUSTIN JOHN HIGGS
This is Dustin john higgs & he’s on death row , he was accused of killing 3 girls and later on they found out that he wasn’t the one who killed them . Their only reasoning on putting him on death row is because they said that he was there , and they said that he bullied the person who did kill those 3 girls into doing it even though, Willis Hayes the one who did commit the murders said that he did not bully him into killing them. Please get the word out so we can save his life !!

Remove @Orasorasays from TIKTOK, YOUTUBE, INSTA, & FB!! PERMANENTLY
On March 19th of 2020 a woman named LaDonna Looney, a.k.a @orasorasays , has been making videos of her painting her face white and making fun of white People all around the world! She has referred to it as “whitefishing” on many of her other social platforms. As she got deeper into committing this racially injustice act, an act that started Oppression toward people of color all those generations ago, she continued to make a Youtube, Instagram, and a Facebook. All of these medias share one thing in common, they are all used to make fun of and be racist toward white people. Whiteface is a relatively new term, one that is going to send our country spiraling to repeat the oppression filled past that we remember but try so hard not to repeat! All history begins somewhere! Hundreds of Thousands of people are offended by this racial injustice as its a gateway to repeating our countries mistakes and dividing unity in our country once again. For if it was reversed, the person would likely be beaten, lose their job, get kicked from their school, lose scholarships, or even worse be dead on the streets! THIS IS NOT EQUALITY!!! We do NOT fight the very few racists left in the world with more ENDLESS racism! Tiktok is a child’s and young adult platform that many enjoy, but with so many young and impressionable minds on tiktok — the next generation that could lead us back into the dreaded segregation — the kind of racist and damaging content is hurting and brainwashing the younger generations to believe and normalize division! Thousands on tiktok have reported not one, but 10+ of her racist videos and all were told that the racist injustice did not violate community guidelines! But we are removed for speaking up against her racist behaviors! Tiktok protects her racist behaviors and it is damaging to the reputation of the Tiktok we have all grown to love. Her page went from a few racist videos sprinkled in to full out racism on nearly every video she posts and we want these racist accounts removed for the safety of our future, our children, and the basic human rights. Racial injustice is wrong no matter who it occurs to. So help me make a change.

Let Jakeb Hornbeak play
They are not letting Jakeb Hornbeak play because of grades, meanwhile he only has three f’s. He has excuses for those as he has been quarantined 3 times and it is extremely hard to focus while dealing with quarantine. Jakeb is now focusing in the classroom and he would make a great point guard. While on the court he activates a dynamic duo with teammate Cade Kelly called the fortnite duo. By signing this, coach would realize Jakeb needs to be on the court. Sign this and #justiceforjakeb
Petition to Community Renewal Society
Save The Chicago Reporter
As alumni of The Chicago Reporter, a group that has spanned its nearly 50 year history, we are concerned about the future of the Reporter, which has served as an iconic journalistic agent of change through its fact- and data-based reporting. In September, the Community Renewal Society put the Reporter on “hiatus” and removed its editor and publisher with no public announcement or explanation. Months later, we are still in the dark about its future. We are calling on the Community Renewal Society to restore the editorial independence and resume publishing The Chicago Reporter. There has never been a more important time for The Chicago Reporter to be actively engaged in its work of exposing systemic racism, as activists and citizens raise issues of racial and economic disparities and police shootings of Black men and women. Movements depend on the facts dug up and revealed by journalists about illegal, unfair and immoral acts of government and other institutions, and succeed in forcing change through the spotlight of news organizations like the Reporter. The Reporter’s success depends on its independent editorial control and its freedom to conduct its investigations and reporting without interference as it holds institutions and leaders accountable on issues of race, ethnicity, poverty and justice. We ask the public -- including the people of Chicago and journalists at large -- to sign this petition asking Community Renewal Society to reinstate The Chicago Reporter and to hire a highly qualified, independent editor and publisher to oversee its operations going forward.
