• Mulliken Welcomes Diversity
    The board's actions in previously denying the monks' request for permission to renovate the former Mulliken United Methodist Church was contrary to the ideals and beliefs of the majority of people in Mulliken. The people of Mulliken are particularly dismayed that one board member specifically stated that she voted against the monks' request based on religious differences. Religious discrimination is contrary to the best interests of the Mulliken community and to the preferences of the people of Mulliken. Such discrimination cannot be permitted to be perpetuated or endorsed by the Village board. The people of Mulliken welcome the Buddhist community. It is our hope that the monks will reapply and that their application will be granted. The Mulliken community looks forward to meeting and getting to know our newest members.

  • Demand ISP like Comcast & cox provide unlimited data to all users
    It is important because of the current Covid crisis because families are having to keep children at home and do school online and because monopolies and collusion between corporations that compete with each other is illegal and destroys the very foundation of a free market.

  • Justice for Krista Baldivia and Alonzo Wilds
    Krista Baldivia and Alonzo Wilds both left behind families. Krista left behind a mother, a father, 9 siblings, a husband, a daughter and a step-son. While Krista may not have been a pillar of the community she was a person and justice should be served the same as if she was the Frederick County Commonwealth Attorney's own blood. Her, and Mr. Wilds, criminal history should not overshadow the cause of their deaths and the actions of Heishman.

  • John Lewis Memorial Statue at BLM Plaza Washington DC
    Congressman John Robert Lewis was an American Hero and one of our Forefather's of Civil Rights. From his early activism as one of the original 13 Freedom Riders, his speech at the March on Washington, his march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma Alabama on Bloody Sunday March 7, 1966, to his 33 years in Congress Congressman Lewis spent his life's work for diversity, inclusion, and equality for all. Congressman Lewis is a recipient of Profile in Courage Award by the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation and the Presidential Medal of Freedom along with countless other accolades. Even as John Lewis was dying he continued to put others ahead of himself. Prior to his passing Congressman John Lewis had the forethought to have his letter published in the NY Times on the day of his funeral where he addressed the younger generations, “Now it is your turn to let freedom ring.” In his letter to the NY Times on seeing Black Lives Matter Plaza Congressman Lewis wrote "I just had to see and feel it for myself that, after many years of silent witness, the truth is still marching on." https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/30/opinion/john-lewis-civil-rights-america.html This is the time that we recognize this true American hero and not five, ten, or fifty years from now. Let us be more like Congressman John Lewis and be on the right side of this history.

    The Axios Interview, by Jonathan Swan, definitively underlined the devastating truth of US President's mental deterioration."Trump presents as a man in decline, unable to absorb basic facts about the deadly pandemic ravaging the nation, being spoon-fed information in simplistic kindergarten-level charts." (Daily Edge) President Trump's attack on the USPS, and its ability to ensure due democratic processes through the safe delivery of ballots, is unconstitutional and an attack on Civil Rights. Trump's action is a direct attempt to dismantle the foundation of American democracy, and therefore, in itself, enough reason to force the resignation of Trump before democracy is completely lost. Further, the unleashing of extreme militarized violence against U.S. citizens is a terrifying authoritarian act disregarding First Amendment Rights of all citizens to protest.

  • Board of Governors of the United States Postal Service: Remove Louis DeJoy
    I am a tax paying American Citizen. Louis DeJoy is taking actions that are disrupting the mission of the United States Postal Service, which is to deliver US mail to the citizens of the US in a timely fashion. DeJoy has no experience or expertise that pertains to the USPS. In the last 3 weeks mail delivery has begun to take longer than it had prior to Mr. DeJoy being appointed to the position of US Postmaster General. Mail that would normally take 2-3 days to receive is now taking 4-6 days. This is in direct correlation to actions taken by Mr. DeJoy that deprioritize the timely delivery of our mail. With a federal election less than 3 months away in the midst of a global pandemic it is imperative that the timely delivery of United States mail be made a priority. Mr. DeJoy is a barrier to this necessity.

  • Banner of Reconciliation
    The “bill,” to be known as “Banner of Reconciliation,” will signify the visible manifestation of all forms of government's willingness to recognize the history, contemporary lives, and future hopes of persons of African descent. This bill will signify the beginning of the United States' effort to remember and rectify its misconduct and blatant disregard for human life as it has affected people of African Descent.

  • Eliminate Racial Stereotypes on ALL Stages
    The use of blackface elicits the painful racism and historical entertainment in which performers darkened their skin to play characters that perpetuated African American racist stereotypes in the United States. While the practice is progressively infrequent in North America with several instances in which politicians and celebrities in the United States and Canada apologized for wearing blackface or dark makeup long after it was generally seen as derogatory and insulting, it still persists in parts of Europe and Russia. In the case of Yellowface on stage, it was intended to be a mocking of the people in the far east by basically guessing the dances in 1892. With the world being much more connected and multicultural in many countries where diversity and inclusiveness is a crucial priority, it is ignorant to keep these racial stereotypical biases in ballet. It is time to embrace the changing world and not resolute in keeping outdated traditions- to be a citizen of the world rather than a country. Traditions are not unassailable.

  • Stop Fracked Gas Export on the Delaware River
    New Fortress Energy and subsidiary Delaware River Partners are planning to build a port terminal to export liquefied natural gas (LNG) and natural gas liquids (NGLs) on the Delaware River in Gibbstown, NJ. This is about 15 minutes south of Philadelphia, 2.7 miles from Chester, PA and adjoins the back yards of people in Gibbstown, NJ. Trains and trucks would carry dangerous and potentially explosive LNG over 200 miles from Wyalusing, PA, where New Fortress is building a LNG processing plant from regional fracked gas to Gibbstown through communities who don’t even know about it. LNG would be transferred from trucks and rail cars directly to enormous ships 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. The ships would travel down the river, past Wilmington and other Delaware and New Jersey bay communities, overseas to Puerto Rico, Ireland and other foreign ports where New Fortress hopes to make their fortune. We want to send the strongest message we can to the Commissioners! Please strengthen our message with your signature!
