PLEASE SIGN MY PETITION TO HAVE THE BLOCK FEATURE CHANGED

I think the time has come where something needs to be done on Tumblr in order for us all to feel safe coming on here again. 

Currently if you block someone, it makes it so only you can’t see what they are doing. They are still free to follow, like and reblog your posts- and that kind of defeats the whole purpose of blocking someone. 

Please sign my petition to have the block feature changed, and reblog this to spread the word!

"Go ahead and call the cops- they can’t unrape you”

Imagine being a 13 year old girl who has been raped. By multiple boys. And your rape was filmed and then shared on Facebook, where an audience of thousands of anonymous users watched your personal strife. The next step would be to go to the police – and so you do. And their response? To ask what you were wearing. And then dismiss your rape, saying there’s not enough evidence to proceed.

That’s what happened to a 13 year old young woman who was raped two years ago. 

She was the victim of Roast Busters, a group of boys who secretly filmed themselves gang raping intoxicated underage girls. They then humiliated these women by bragging on Facebook – posting videos and sharing the personal anguish of these women with an audience of thousands. 

The police are saying there’s not enough evidence to convict these Roast Busters, so they won’t charge them. But, it’s now come to light that one of the rapists is, in fact, a local police officer’s son. And that in the past few years 4 victims have gone to the police – and their voices were consistently ignored. 

It’s clear that the police force isn’t doing its part to find justice for these young women. These young women are being dismissed by the official body that is supposed to support those in need – and they have nowhere to turn to because of a lack of proper support services for victims of assault.

That’s why we need our Prime Minister to step up and do the right thing.

The current legal system is too intimidating for victims to come forward - and rapists are being convicted at extremely low rates. And no example of this is greater than these young women who have come forward about Roast Busters – only to be dismissed. Nothing has been done to alleviate the pain and shame these girls feel. 

It’s time to demand justice for these young women. It’s time our Government ensured that protocols, including support services for people who are raped or assaulted, are in place so something like this doesn’t happen again

Use your voice to help these young women whose voices are consistently being ignored.

I love good police officers. I have them in my immediate family. Like all civil servants they are underpaid and under-resourced for a difficult job.

However, a long and completely avoidable history of violence by police officers has killed too many innocent civilians, caused a destructive level of mistrust in the community, and is causing a rising tide of anger, frustration, and despair among millions of good people.

This petition is for Amadou Diallo - shot at 41 times. An innocent, hardworking man simply reaching for his wallet, Diallo should be alive today.

This petition is for Sean Bell - shot at over 50 times and killed on his wedding day. 

This petition is for Oscar Grant - handcuffed with his hands behind his back for breaking a fight on the subway - Oscar was shot in the back and killed by a police officer while sitting down.

This petition is for Chavis Carter - arrested for marijuana, searched, handcuffed with his hands behind his back, and put into the back of a police car. Chavis is then said to have somehow killed himself with a gun. 

This petition is for Wendell Allen - just 20 years old - police busted into a house and shot him in the heart - killing him. He wasn’t who they were looking for.

This petition is for Eric Garner - choked to death on YouTube for the entire world to see. While the coroner has deemed his death a homicide, we must change the laws to prevent this from ever happening again.

This petition is for these men, and for many other unarmed men and women who have been killed by the police. It is unacceptable for the police to serve as JUDGE, JURY, and EXECUTIONER. The recent murders of Eric Garner, Michael Brown and John Crawford this past month at the hands of police have so inflamed communities across the country that we believe we are reaching a tipping point of anger.

It is our hope to channel this collective anger into effective policy solutions that will not only make life safer for citizens, but will restore confidence in police, and bring hope to hopeless families and communities devastated by these egregious acts of violence.

Our 5 Policy Solutions Are As Follows:

1. The shooting and killing of an unarmed citizen who does not have an outstanding warrant for a violent crime should be a federal offense.

2. Choke holds and chest compressions by police (what the coroner lists as the official cause of death for Eric Garner) should be federally banned.

3. All police officers must wear forward-facing body cameras while on duty. They cost just $99 and are having a signficant, positive impact in several cities around the United States and the world.

4. Suspensions for violations of any of the above offenses should be UNPAID.

5. Convictions for the above offenses should have their own set of mandatory minimum penalties. The men who killed Diallo, Bell, Grant, Carter, Garner, and others all walk free while over 1,000,000 non violent offenders are currently incarcerated in American prisons.

These federal actions are in the best interest of our country. We will direct our anger, our dollars, our votes, and our voice to seeing them happen all across the country.

Sign my petition to get the remaining seasons of A Different World & Living Single released on DVD…500 signatures needed

https://www.change.org/petitions/warner-home-videos-release-the-remaining-seasons-of-a-different-world-living-single-on-dvd

Update: Actually got Erika Alexander AKA Maxine Shaw to sign the petition, and Kim Fields AKA Regine Hunter’s support, so hopefully we’re getting somewhere with this. =)

This petition was started by my religion teacher not very long ago. It concerns an endangered species of sloths, called Pygmy sloths. In 2001, the breed was counted to have about 500 members. In 2012, the official count was down to the 70s. It turns out that local fishermen visit the island seasonally, and instead of eating the profitable fish, choose to kill and eat the pygmy sloths.

If she reaches 100,000 signatures, the next step is to contact ANAM (similar to the US’s EPA) and work to preserve the remaining members of the species. This is so important and I implore you all to sign!

Angel’s Knoll is a beautiful and beloved park in the heart of urban Downtown Los Angeles. It is ranked as the #1 favorite downtown retreat on DowntownLA.com’s Parks and Green Spaces page (http://www.downtownla.com/parks.asp), is ranked an 8.9/10 on foursquare.com with 233 votes, 1,767 visitors and 2,774 check ins, and has 4 out of 5 stars on yelp.com with over 139 reviews.

Most out of town visitors know it as the park from the movie 500 Days of Summer, and go there to re-enact a romantic scene from the movie. I know it as a beautiful park with a very different feel from nearby Pershing Square. It is more serene, natural, and has beautiful mature trees and landscaping.

With the disbanding of the CRA that owned the park, it is reportedly up for sale (http://la.curbed.com/archives/2013/08/dtlas_angels_knoll_aka_500_days_of_summer_park_closed.php). To sell it to a developer who might build over the park would be a loss for the downtown community. The City of LA should consider buying and incorporating the park as part of the Department of Parks and Recreation, or else should be involved in overseeing its sale and restricting its redevelopment to make sure that it remains a public park. 

Regardless of the solution, it is imperative that something be done quickly as the landscaping in the park is already beginning to deteriorate after a few weeks without care. Further delay could lead to costly deferred maintenance and the loss of mature trees and landscaping currently in place.

Let’s re-open this park!

sign this fucking thing

this is a change.org petition to SAVE IN THE FLESH. only 219 signatures to go so please please please help get us a third season - it would mean so much to us. too many fandoms know this feeling - pushing daisies, firefly, the hour - you know what it is to go without a third, or even a second season. PLEASE GIVE US THIS CHANCE. better yet, watch this fucking show and fall in love. but all i’m asking for is your support:

https://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/bbc-three-give-in-the-flesh-a-third-season

after a second day of the #saveintheflesh campaigning, it’s so heartening to see more and more fans. signing this could give us the chance to expand the fandom - and maybe get another season. 

Please read this, it’s really important to me and my town!!

I’ll keep this short: Over a year ago, a kid I went to to school with, Brandon, was killed when a driver hit them with her SUV while he and his friends were riding their bikes at 1AM. Brandon was killed, his friend Richard was in the hospital for weeks because of his injuries but the third friend had minor things in comparison. Simply to say, it was tragic, he was one of the nicest kids that I knew even if I didn’t speak to him on a daily basis. On an even sadder note, Brandon’s older brother passed away several months after the accident from a combination of both drugs and alcohol. 

So after all this time, the driver that KILLED Brandon and hit two other boys are SUING Brandon’s family, the two friends who survived and the local police because of permanent “pain and suffering” for $1.35 million and her husband is suing for $900 000. Not only is this incredibly absurd, but there is a lot of biased things in the reports of the night Brandon was killed and how everything happened. It is needless to say that a proper investigation should be done regarding what happened 18 months ago before she should be allowed to sue this family for a ridiculous sum of money. 

It would be such a big help if you can sign this petition and have the chief of police in my town do a proper investigation and help Brandon’s family and his friends. Here’s a news article with more information regarding it as well! Please, it only takes a little time and would help so much!

Hey guys, the person who made the justice for Issy petition on change.org (the autistic child who was almost murdered by her mom) is a misogynist fuck and is using the petition to harass and threaten an autistic woman who called him out on his misogyny

He’s literally using the petition email system itself to defame, harass and threaten one of our own with sexual violence.

So please don’t spread that petition around anymore. Wait for a new one to be made that isn’t in the hands of a misogynist piece of shit who preys on more vulnerable members of the autistic community.

Guys, I know this isn’t Pokemon related, but I’m sure most of you know that animal abuse - and especially anything related to rats - is very, very close to my heart. PLEASE sign this petition if you have the time. I’m not one for thinking that signing a petition is automatically going to change anything, but I hope that sending this petition to them will let them know that there are people who know what they’re doing and threaten ‘encourage’ them to change their treatment of rats. In Canada, it’s actually completely illegal to sell or keep feeder rats, so I don’t know why this isn’t the case in the US.

Petition to implore the Hogtown Reptile Shop to treat their feeder rats humanely, or stop selling them altogether.

Hey guys
So about 2 weeks ago over 200 girls were kidnapped in Borno State Nigeria. Since then the international community has brought no attention to the issue at hand. Some girls have escaped on their own but there are still hundreds more missing. Friends and families have organized their own search parties, but they do not have the resources needed to tackle something of this scale. If you could please sign this petition (http://www.change.org/petitions/over-200-girls-are-missing-in-nigeria-so-why-doesn-t-anybody-care-234girls), it literally takes less than a minute. The petition aims to make this issue a top priority at UNICEF and UNWomen. BRINGBACKOURGIRLS!

Please sign and boost

my friend’s old school, in Georgia, recently had an event in which girls were humiliated and attacked for what they wanted to wear and for their bodies- all because of a dress code set in place for a social event (mind you boys had no dress code). So could you please take 1 minute out of your day to sign this? I would love you forever!!!
