• SITTING behind the wheel of a vehicle, is a crime!
    Alot of people are going to jail because they are "in actual physical control of a motor vehicle", even if the vehicle is not running and there is not intention to drive. The state of Illinois says it is a crime to SIT behind the wheel of a vehicle, when your license is revoked or suspended. This goes back to slavery days, when blacks were not allowed to sit where they wanted, but the voice of the people got everyone involved and changes were made. We need to have this statement omitted from ALL vehicle codes, in order to keep innocent people out of jail, and focus more on drunk driving!!

  • No Incarceration without DNA Paternity Confirmation
    Allow everyone the opportunity to know who they really are by encouraging legislation toward mandatory DNA paternity testing. Millions of people suffer, most assuredly children born into obscure existences, because one parent balks about confirming family origin through DNA testing.

  • Open ALL Adoption Records NOW!
    The era of secrecy in adoption is OVER! Closed adoptions have been extremely hard on adoptees and their original families. Closed adoption is DETRIMENTAL to mother, child, and family. It is a blight on our society that such a thing still exists.. To let keep records closed is an injustice! Minnesota has been a leader in social justice, let's keep it that way! Secrecy begets tyranny- Robert A. Heinlein

  • The USA vs. Douglas White
    88 year-old Douglas White, the oldest living holy man from Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, died in prison on November 24, 2009. He spent the last 17 years of his life incarcerated for a crime he did not commit. The government didn’t want to admit that it made a mistake. Despite possessing conclusive evidence of Douglas’ innocence, the government fabricated a technicality to keep an innocent man in prison. Douglas never got a fair trial from the very beginning. But after 14 years in prison, new evidence of his actual innocence was discovered. He played by all the rules and the government robbed him of the opportunity to clear his name and spend his last days with his people. To this day, the government refuses to be accountable and thinks it can wash the blood off its hands and declare the case “moot.” This case is a shameless and corrupt collusion of power between the Court system and the US Attorney’s office who act as if they are above the law. This is not just an “Indian problem.” This is a problem for all Americans, for all people, everywhere because if it could happen to him, it could happen to any one of us. And it does, all the time. Let’s not let this holy man have died in vain. Douglas’ case is a glaring example of the corruption in the US justice system and can set a precedent that could change the way justice is served in this country. By demanding an investigation into this travesty of justice, we can expose this systemic corruption and prevent this from ever happening again. Please sign the petition. For more information on the film about Douglas case, “Holy Man: The USA vs Douglas White,” please visit www.holymanfilm.com.

  • Justice for Edward Sanders

He has a bachelor's degree, legal skills and assists others spiritually. His prison record is virtually unblemished. In July, 2011, he was nearly killed at Kinross prison by another prisoner known for his history of repeated violent assaults on prisoners he is housed with. It is time for Michigan to grant clemency to Edward; meanwhile he must be transferred back to Wayne County with a stipulation for a 2 man room or cell housing.

    Rick Perry allowed Cameron Todd Willingham to be executed for a supposed arson fire that killed his children, when Perry's own experts concluded "there was no arson involved" A commission formed by Perry came to this conclusion at which point Perry fired three of the commissioners and replaced them with his own cronies. A New Yorker article and a documentary, Incendiary: The Willingham Case, go into great detail about this
