• Save Black Men/Woman's Hopeless Lives
    There are more than a hundred thousand over 65, non violent black people in America's state prisons, who no longer have the capacity to commit the kinds of crimes they are imprisoned for. Florida holds more than all states but 4. A black person couldn't even play basketball for Southern Universities until the mid 1970s. A large majority are in for more than 10 years, for non violent crimes. Habitual offenders they are called. Free them now, they are poor, penniless, and led a life without hope, please give them free air in their last days, as they don't live much past their early 70s. Many of them were innocent of the some of the crimes they plead guilty to, rather than follow the advice of bad attornies or face all white juries.

  • Dismiss Citations for Honking on Pecos Street
    On March 24, 2012 the San Angelo Police Department began issuing citations to motorists who used the horn as a sign of support for or disapproval of Planned Parenthood. This petition urges the honorable judges of the San Angelo Municipal Court to dismiss all citations for "non-emergent or excessive use of horn" (or like citations) on or after this date. Dismissal of these citations is a gesture of goodwill toward the motorists that did nothing but express themselves in a way that is inconsistent with a little-known local law.

  • Stop Incarcerating Citizens for Fines and Other Payments
    There's is an issue in which citizens are being incarcerated for not being able to pay fines, court cost, or even child support; but the only thing wrong with this is that these are not criminal actions and should not be treated as. This is an act of which I would call arbitrary and discriminatory act against the under privileged and poor citizens of our country. Does it makes sence to oppresse these individuals who are already financial stressed?

  • Sharico Blakely: Another Black Man Abused by the System.
    Mr. Blakely took his chances, instead of taking a plea bargain of 6yrs, out in 3yrs. He decided put it in the hands of 12 jurors and a judge. Once found guilty, the judge gave him the maximum of 100yrs!!!!! Since being sentenced, the time has been modified to 60yrs, which is still a lot of time, gone! Yet there are child molesters on probation on a 2nd offense??? What sense does this make??? Has anyone thought of why he went down the the road he did?? And this young black man has a family!! Let's show this young black man that even with bad choices, your still loved, missed, and we want him home!! I know this won't solve the issues of a corrupt judicial system, but we can open eyes of the ignorant, and show Sharico we love him!!

  • Pardon of Innocence for Glen Edward Chapman
    Glen Edward Chapman was released from North Carolina's death row on April 2, 2008 after spending more than 15 years behind bars facing execution for two murders he did not commit. Since his release Edward has worked hard at a minimum wage job, but without a dime of compensation since his exoneration, Ed's financial situation remains very difficult. In order to receive monetary compensation from North Carolina, Ed must first receive a Pardon of Innocence from the Governor. No one can give Ed back those years spent in prison or fully compensate him for what he lost. But this an opportunity to stand with a man who has been unjustly accused of crimes he did not commit; a chance for the State of North Carolina to redeem itself by doing the just thing; an occasion to rise up and require the government to take responsibility for robbing this man of his freedom: unable to attend his mother’s funeral; unable to attend his grandmother’s funeral; unable to watch his children grow up and unable to reunite with his community. For more information go to http://www.glenedwardchapman.com/# Governor Perdue has the power to right this wrong . We are calling on her to do what is right for Edward Chapman before she leaves office, by granting Edward Chapman a Pardon of Innocence.

  • Justice for Trayvon Martin
    George Zimmerman's shooting of Trayvon Martin, an African American teenager, reveals a history of racism in Sanford, Florida, that has stubbornly refused to die. Weeks after the shooting, the Sanford police department is slow to release details of the shooting and, more surprisingly, has not arrested George Zimmerman, a man who has a history of violence. We urge you to sign this petition to protect private citizens from gun violence and inept law enforcement. Florida's Attorney General Pam Bondi must step in and provide justice for Trayvon Martin, his family, and the community.
