• Proclaim September Campus Fire Safety Month in Your State
    On April 14, 2011, Jasmine Jahanshahi lost her life in an apartment fire while studying abroad; at least 6 college students affiliated with American universities have perished in fires this academic year. Join J.U.S.T.I.C.E. and Campus Firewatch in requesting that governors across the U.S. proclaim September as Campus Fire Safety Month in his or her home state in order to "raise awareness and encourage schools to provide fire prevention and safety education". If we can inspire university officials to make fire safety a part of the curriculum at freshmen orientations and at study abroad orientations, we can help young adults learn to protect themselves. Please visit firesafetyfoundation.org for fire safety tips and for more information about J.U.S.T.I.C.E., the foundation we have established in Jasmine's memory.

  • Justice For Harrisburg
    Harrisburg is in fiscal collapse, Monies were borrowed for projects that had no hope of repaying the debt. Public officials and well paid professionals told the world that the bonds -- now almost $300 million on one project alone -- were self-liquidating, when they had to know that was impossible. To date, no one has been held to account. We demand accountability, fairness and justice. We ask the U.S. Justice Department to fully investigate these dealings, charge those who ignored the law and report to the world what really happened.

  • Stop Gov. Walker's Redistricting Power Grab
    Instead of doing their job and listening to their constituents, Scott Walker’s GOP lemmings are changing the game and rigging the rules so they can’t be held accountable for their own actions. They are doing this by drawing undemocratic, hyper-partisan districts that kick many Democratic legislators out of their own districts! Stop the power grab. Raise your voice. Sign our petition for a fair and balanced approach to redistricting.

    Petition sponsored by: The Beer Party South Carolina Chapter South Carolina has been under Republican rule far too long. Now the "Tea Party" is influencing Governor Nikki Haley and Senator Jim DeMint. If this continues, they will most certainly destroy our beautiful state. Lt. Governor (Ken Ard) is charged with 107 ethics violations. SC Superintendent (Mick Zais) has refused to obtain federal grants for our children's education. Our Recall Petition will be presented alongside Reps. James Smith, Bakari Sellers & Boyd Brown's proposed Recall Bill to the SC House and SC Senate. Let our elected officials know that their constituents support this bill for passage.

  • Mail the republicans a piece of bread
    Please mail each of your Senators and Congressmen ONE PIECE OF BREAD. This is to explain that we, the middle class do not want to eat cake...and it is to help them see that all we are looking for is a fair slice of the American dream. It will signify that we favor taxing the rich as opposed to cutting Social Security and/or Medicare.

  • Tucson United
    The Arizona State Constitution, Article XIV, Section 18 states: Under Contributions to Influence Elections or Official Action "It shall be unlawful for any corporation, organized or doing business in this state, to make any contribution of money or anything of value for the purpose of influencing any election or official action." The eternal struggle between right and wrong. The common right of humanity set against the divine right of kings. It is the same spirit that says, " you work and toil and earn bread and I'll eat it." No matter in what shape it comes, whether from the mouth of a king who seeks to bestride the people of his own nation and live by the fruit of their labor, or from one race of humans as an apology for enslaving another race, or a vast criminal enterprise of corporate corruption of government officials, it is all the same tyrannical principle of despotism. Tucson is telling the nation that we oppose the fiction of "corporate personhood." Sign on and show your support! Now is the time for the Tucson City Council to unite with cities across the United States and embrace a resolution that stands up to abuses involving campaign finance and corporate lobbying of federally elected officials.

  • Support H. Res. 333 that Honors American Veterans of WWII
    H. Res. 333 supports the 67-year effort for justice by the American POWs of Japan who suffered untold hardships and misery in captivity and faced gag orders and poor treatment upon their return to the United States. The resolution is an enduring message to all service men and women that their country will never forsake them. These WWII veterans all in their 90s wish to see their dignity restored and memory honored before the last one passes on. The resolution thanks the Government of Japan for its apology and program of reconciliation given to the American POWs in September 2010. The resolution further encourages Japan's great companies that used these POWs as slave labor to follow the example of their government to acknowledge and apologize to the American POWs. Japanese companies that used POW slave labor include Mitsui, Mitsubishi, Sumitomo, Hitachi, Kawasaki, Showa Denko, Nippon Steel, and Nippon Sharyo. To hear the POW experience in these veterans own words see: http://www.youtube.com/user/americanpowsofjapan?feature=mhee To see H. Res. 333, please visit: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d112:h.res.333:

  • Gov. Scott: Proclaim September Campus Fire Safety Month
    This academic year, at least 6 college students affiliated with American universities, including Jasmine Jahanshahi, have lost their lives in fires. Join JUSTICE and Campus Firewatch in requesting that Rick Scott proclaim September as Campus Fire Safety Month, in order to "raise awareness and encourage schools to provide fire prevention and safety education". Additionally, we hope with this proclamation to encourage schools to publish annual fire safety reports, in accordance with the Higher Campus Fire Safety Right-to-Know Act of 2008.

  • Education for Rare Diseases in Oregon
    Providence Health Services, one of the largest hospital groups in the Portland Metro area of Oregon, is under equipped and undereducated about the diagnosis, treatment, and full range of symptoms involved in POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome). POTS is a disorder of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS), primarily characterized by the symptom that it takes its name from: when you stand up, you can pass out.  When people stand up, gravity starts to take over with your body's blood flow, pulling it down to your legs and abdomen.  In most people, the ANS triggers a slight increase in blood pressure and heart rate, tightening the veins in your legs, and compensates to keep blood flowing normally to your brain.  In people with POTS, things don't quite go as planned.  The ANS overcompensates, increasing the heart rate dramatically.  The veins in the legs don't tighten, and blood pressure doesn't raise, and can often drop.  Blood flow to the brain is slowed, they get less oxygen to the brain, and they can gray out or even pass out completely.  Other common symptoms in people with POTS include nausea, gastrointestinal disorders, heat intolerance, fatigue and more.  POTS is currently affecting an estimated 1.7% of the population, though with the high number of misdiagnoses that most POTS patients receive before their POTS diagnosis, that percentage could be much higher.  POTS is debilitating, ruining peoples' careers, family lives, social activities.  It is also misunderstood, frequently misdiagnosed or mistaken for stress, anxiety, depression, sometimes even bipolar disorder or other more serious psychological disorders.
As an in-home caregiver for a patient with POTS, I've seen many issues with Providence Health Services regarding the education of their providers.  Most have never heard of POTS, and find it "too complex to treat."  Some don't believe in POTS, since there is nothing structurally wrong with the body.  Others know a little about it, but are either going by out-of-date research information, or don't know how to diagnose/treat it.  There are a handful of doctors in the Portland area who are being overwhelmed with patients from all over Oregon and Washington.  Providence Health Systems needs to start educating their providers about how to diagnose POTS, and how to treat it.  I am petitioning them to start an education and awareness campaign within their hospitals and clinics, and invite local POTS patients to speak first-hand about their experiences.
