• Help Change the Unethical Practices Imposed on Ex-Offenders and Felons
    Former inmates are being prosecuted even outside of the judicial system daily upon release. With a criminal record, convicts find it difficult to find a place to contribute for the good of society. The American judicial system have put in place a catch twenty-two loop hole, where ex-offenders and felons find difficult to adapt. Congress has a $50 million budget designated to help ex-offenders and convicted felons with employment. Help bring this forward so ex-offenders and felons can make their contribution to society.

  • Seal Felony Convictions 7yrs Or Older
    The State Of Illinois is losing a lot of tax dollars because people with felonies older then 7yrs old are unemployed because of a mistake they made. The best thing Illinois can do is pass a law to not go past 7yrs on a background check, more people will be employed and the state will collect more taxes. It's a win win situation. We are asking Governor Quinn to make this happen.

  • Abolish Private Prisons in Colorado
    Privatization erodes public control and oversight. Nowhere is privatization more insidious than in the corporate takeover of our criminal justice and immigrant detention systems. For-profit corporations own and run hundreds of prisons, jails, and detention centers in this country. For these companies, every prisoner is a profit center, every crime a business opportunity, and rehabilitation is bad for business

  • We request Major Breznicki be allowed to prove his innocence.
    Let no one be discouraged by the belief there is nothing one man or one woman can do against the enormous array of the world's ills - against misery and ignorance, injustice and violence... Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation... It is from the numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centres of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

  • Cal Boro Cops: Unjust Actions
    I have started this petition to bring to light all of the unnecessary actions that the Cal boro cops have taken towards "US" the students; from beating and tazing students multiple times, to handing out fines like candy. A situation happened on 3/6/12 when a student was tazed four times and was also beaten. When a fellow student tried to record a cop quickly shot one last tazer before anyone could begin a recording. This is not the first incident of this situation and it wont be the last until someone speaks up. I myself have been unjustly treated. I felt that I was just only one person who couldn't do a thing; but I learned it only takes one "If one can chase 1,000 to flight, then two can put 10,000 to flight" I would like for those of you who feel strongly about this to sign and even give a brief description of your own experience if your willing to share. Once I have enough I will send the petition to VP Bob Thorn. He has already been notified and he is down for the cause, BUT he states that we need more people to speak up if you want something to be done of the situation.

  • Wake Up Louisiana
    We have locked away our southern women for life, unjustly. They acted on basic instinct and defended themselves against an abusive partner and lost their families, children and freedom. We must make things right, we are their voices.
