  • Allow NJ Hair Salons & Barbershops to reopen
    100% of the Licensed Hair Salons and Barbershops in New Jersey have been abruptly shut down since the onset of the Coronavirus quarantine, even though safety measures could have been considered and implemented to prevent a total shutdown. Governor Murphy has allowed several other businesses, such as home improvement stores, Ice cream shops, liquor stores, coffee shops, etc., to be deemed “essential” and allowed to operate. Governor Murphy is also allowing all NJ beaches and boardwalks to reopen as long as social distancing is practiced. Why can’t hair salons and barbershops be allowed to reopen under the same conditions ? The NJ Board of Cosmetology has stringent requirements that must be followed to ensure the health and safety of every client, many salons have been implementing theses guidelines for years. With the implementation of additional safety measures hair salons and barbershops can safely service clients. I ask that those In agreement petition for all licensed hair salons and barbershops to immediately be one of the first businesses on the list to reopen.

  • Overturn the Wrongful Conviction of Jon-Adrian Velazquez
    This is an application for the immediate release of Jon-Adrian Velazquez, a man who is innocent and has been unlawfully imprisoned since February 2, 1998. Jon-Adrian Velazquez IS AN INNOCENT MAN. Here are seven reasons why Mr. Velazquez’s conviction must be vacated: 1. Mr. Velazquez and his alibi witness have both taken lie detector tests and have passed them with flying colors. 2. Eyewitnesses have recanted their identifications and changed their trial testimony. 3. There is no physical or DNA evidence against Mr. Velazquez. 4. There is absolutely no connection between Mr. Velazquez and the admitted co-perpetrator of the crime. 5. A seated juror was identified as the shooter during Velazquez’s trial, yet still voted to find him guilty, but has since admitted that he made a grave mistake. 6. There is an outstanding disparity between the initial descriptions of the shooter’s appearance and race-as provided by every single witness-and Mr. Velazquez’s actual appearance and race. 7. The police failed to pursue and investigate an individual by the name of “Mustafa” who was identified to law enforcement by multiple independent sources as the shooter and the person responsible for the death of the deceased. His continued incarceration violates his right to due process under Article 1, 5, and 6 of the New York State Constitution and the 8th and 14th Amendments to the United States Constitution. As citizens of "OUR" global community, WE respectfully declare that the case of the People v. Jon-Adrian Velazquez(Indictment #693/98) be vacated immediately. We demand immediate intervention and correction, and also pray for favorable consideration in this matter in accordance with our Bill of Rights.
