  • Expunge Evictions in South Carolina
    COVID-19 eviction policies at the state, local, and federal levels initially proved effective in preventing housing instability during the pandemic. However, eviction rates have since risen again as national and statewide moratoriums have ended. Presently, a greater number of Americans are facing challenges in meeting rent obligations compared to previous years, with communities of color disproportionately impacted by economic hardships resulting from the pandemic. This disparity is evident in survey data showing that 24 percent of Black renters surveyed were behind on rent payments, while only 11 percent of white renters surveyed faced similar difficulties. Locally, North Charleston and Columbia are both ranked in the top 10 across the country for eviction. Research has shown that eviction can be the equivalent of a prison record: poor black men may be locked up, but poor black women are locked out. both phenomena work together to propagate economic disadvantages. Unfortunately, about 40% of evictions involve children, which have lasting traumatic impacts. Expunging evictions would eliminate one of the many barriers to affordable housing, which we all desperately need.

  • Bridget Ziegler Must Immediately Resign from the Sarasota School Board!
    Ms. Ziegler was a founder of Moms for Liberty and promoted chilling legislation against the LGBTQ+ community and false narratives about so-called “grooming” of children in public schools. Her hypocrisy is stunning if any of these allegations prove to be true. This drama is too much of a distraction in the current operation of our school district and in the best interests of our students, parents, teachers, staff, administrators, and fellow board members, she needs to resign post haste.

  • It's time to #PassPaidLeave for all!
    The United States is one of only six remaining countries in the world with no guaranteed form of paid leave. Just 25 percent of workers in the entire country have access to paid family leave through their jobs. And here in America, one in four people who have given birth returned to work within two weeks—bleeding, sleep-deprived, and often still injured. There is a human cost to the lack of paid leave, and families are paying for it. Women and caregivers lift up our economy, which also disproportionately relies on the undervalued labor of women of color. Passing paid leave and care policies would yield millions of jobs, billions in wages, and trillions in GDP. It would reduce turnover costs, retain talented workers, and allow employers and small businesses to be more competitive. It would keep working people in their jobs and families afloat.

  • Protect workers from AI abuses!
    Big Tech corporations hype up advances in AI as ways they might improve their products or services, but the ugly truth is that they are using AI to pad their profit margins and exploit workers. Given how fast the field of AI is developing, we need to speak out NOW to protect workers’ rights.

  • Get The Grammy Awards to acknowledge Buck-Tick
    This is important to me because Buck-Tick's music has touched many fans worldwide, even if they don't want to admit it, they are heroes behind their musical instruments. They may have inspired and prevented fans from taking their own lives, put it bluntly. The band has definitely deserved more Awards than what they have been presented with over the years. Their live performances are extremely dynamic, I have only seen recorded versions of their live shows, but wow!!!

  • Help Us Get Period Products On The Ferries
    Hello, we are middle school girls who are doing a project for 7th grade. We have noticed that there are no menstrual products or sanitary bins in the ferry bathrooms. You can't even buy them in the galley. We thought that this would be a perfect topic to stand up for what we think is right and fair. These products are only available if you ask a crew member. You already have to pay for the period products, and now you have to go up to a stranger and ask them for something that you might not feel comfortable asking for. This can lead to embarrassment, and can also cause people who have periods to not feel supported by their community. This makes us question our equality. The ferry provides all the basic bathroom necessities for people who don't menstruate. But they omit some of the basic bathroom necessities for people who do menstruate. When we reached out to the ferry customer service they said that they removed the period product dispensers due to vandalism. When basic things like toilet paper, soap dispensers, and paper towel machines get vandalized, the ferry management accepts the cost of vandalism, puts them back out, and restocks them. On the other hand, when period products get vandalized, the ferry management uses vandalism as an acceptable reason to take them down and get rid of them. The lack of period products in the bathrooms is a lack of respect and privacy. This is an unequal level of service based on gender. If you want to support getting period products and sanitary bins in the ferry bathrooms, please sign our petition. Thank you for reading. :)

  • Update the outdated BMI policy for Top Surgery
    Researchers at the Johns Hopkins Center for Transgender and Gender Expansive Health released a study in the journal Annals of Plastic Surgery on November 1. They reviewed over 2,300 cases of chest masculinization surgery (top surgery) performed in the U.S. between 2012 and 2020. The researchers found no correlation between a patient’s BMI and whether the person develops severe post-surgical complications, even though that measurement is frequently used to determine whether a surgery will be approved or denied. The authors of the study recommend “re-evaluation of BMI cutoffs” and say “When you look at the data and you look at complications resulting from top surgery, BMI really doesn’t factor into it much at all,” Despite this Both major providers of chest masculinization surgery in Denver, CO Denver Health and UCHealth will often not even take referrals for people with a BMI over 40. My primary care doctor told me that there was no point in her ever referring me because they will just deny the referral. These two hospitals are the only places in the entire state of Colorado that I could find who take Medicaid for chest masculinization surgery as well which leads to more denials for poor and disabled trans people. Please consider signing and sharing this petition so that more trans people of Denver have access to the gender affirming care they need!
