Petition for responsible reuse of food waste April 01, 2012 11:52 AM

All over the world people and animals are starving, we are consuming fossil fuels without consequence, and farms are using chemicals instead of growing crops naturally. In America we are also sending HALF the food we produce to the landfills when it could go to feed, fuel, and fertilize.

 

Please sign this petition to get law passed requiring all grocery stores and restaurants contribute the food they would normally throw away to these three causes to benefit the cycle of life.

Thank you!

It is actually hard to believe this still is true in NJ in the 21st century, where some people who love and have committed themselves to each other still cannot legally marry.

Support our Senators on the Matt Shepard Act May 10, 2007 5:49 PM

Pass the Matthew Shepard Act in the Senate

In a hard-won victory, hate crimes legislation has passed the House of Representatives. The bill could be up for a vote in the near future in the U.S. Senate – where the radical right, terrified of this legislation, has stepped up their attacks.

It is essential that we pass the bill in the Senate with a broad enough majority – and strong Republican support – to discourage a presidential veto. Thank your Senator(s) for supporting the Matthew Shepard Act and make sure they stay strong in their support.

We need to be the voice of our babies October 05, 2006 6:00 PM

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/659570107

This is an online petition I created as the result of a terrible event in my life.  Last year everything was great.  I had just been married to the love of my life, Sean.  We have 2 beautiful children Gabrielle will be 4 soon, and Sean Jr. is now 3.  We were also expecting our third baby.  She was nicknamed my red headed little devil.  I felt her tiny body of life at just 13 weeks, and she never stopped doing aerobics in mommy's belly from the day forward.  Gabrielle was so excited even though she insisted we were having a boy.  She would have loved her sister Gwendolyn just the same as soon as she saw her beautiful face.  We were int he process of buying our first house, and I was following my dream in school to become a Nurse.  One day on my way to class I was broadsided by another vehicle.  I have no memorey of the accident or anything after until I woke up 3 weeks later.  Sadly our angel Gwendolyn was gone.  Baby was 8 months along and would have been ok if the circumstances were diffrent that day.  If there was no accident, and Gwendolyn was born that day, she had over a 98% chance of survival.  Infact, babies like Gwendolyn can survive outside the womb at 24 weeks.  Sadly, now gwendolyn and many other babies like her have no voice.  We have to be their voice.  In NJ, the law says babies like Gwendolyn are't people with rights.  A baby like Gwendolyn has to be born and take just one breath on their own to be considered a person and to be granted the rights of a human being.  These children are living and breathing inside their mothers' wombs, but have no law to protect their rights as a person.  I think it's time NJ validates children like Gwendolyn as people.  We need to give them the rights they deserve.  Gwendolyn, like many others, has a face and a name, but they say she has no rights.

'Chemical Security Now!' petition September 15, 2006 1:36 AM

From Environment New Jersey

As our nation observed the fifth anniversary of the terrorist attacks
of September 11th this past week, we did so recognizing that much
work remains to improve security. Of the neglected improvements,
chemical plant security is among the most dangerous.

More than 15,000 facilities across the country store large quantities
of deadly chemicals which, if released, could kill thousands of
Americans. The government acknowledges that 123 facilities each place more than one million people at risk of death or serious injury, and another 700 facilities put more than 100,000 at risk.

Please take a moment to sign our 'Chemical Security Now!' petition
urging Congress to enact strong protections that will provide the
public with real protections from a terror attack on a chemical
facility. Then forward this email to your friends and family and ask
them to do the same.

nj menatl health........ September 03, 2006 10:09 AM

New Jersey's

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/401069788

outdated mental illness treatment law makes it nearly impossible for mental health professionals and families to help severely mentally ill people who, as a result of their disease, refuse treatment. New Jersey is one of only eight states without Assisted Outpatient Treatment, which means that people who are in crisis end up on the streets or in jails instead of in treatment.

NJPIRG's global warming action September 01, 2006 1:27 PM

From NJPIRG

Since July when we launched our Stop Global Warming Pollution
petition, over 13,000 of you have signed on.

Your voices were heard, as Rep. Henry Waxman and Sen. James Jeffords introduced the first-ever science-based bills to stop the worst effects of global warming.  Even more exciting, 71 members of the House of Representatives have already cosponsored the bill.

With strong momentum behind us, our goal is to get at least half way to a majority of the House (109 representatives) to cosponsor the bill by the end of September.

You can help us hit our goal of 15,000 petition-signers by signing
the petition today and then asking 5 friends to sign as well.

Click here to sign the petition:

http://uspirg.org/uspirg.asp?id=1097&id4=ES

Background:

Global warming is starting to change weather patterns. Scientists
predict that these changes will accelerate in the future and say that we can expect:

* Extreme weather. Scientists expect hurricanes to become more
intense and say that the hurricanes that hit the Gulf states in 2005
may be an indication of what's to come.

* Public health risks. Scientists also expect heat waves to become
more dangerous, causing more people to suffer heat stress and stroke.
Other impacts include the spread of infectious diseases.

* Less snow, less water. Many of the rivers and streams that we rely on for our water supply are fed by mountain snow. But warmer winters are starting to cause less precipitation to fall as snow, which may cause serious future water shortages.

Most global warming pollution comes from burning oil, coal, and
natural gas in our power plants, cars, SUVs, and factories. Power
plants are the single biggest source, responsible for about 40% of
U.S. global warming pollution. Because there are no federal limits on
global warming pollution, industry can pump unlimited amounts of the pollution into our skies.

The good news is we can reduce global warming pollution by using
existing technology to make power plants and factories more
efficient, make cars go farther on a gallon of gasoline, and shift to
cleaner technologies, such as hybrids, biofuels, and wind and solar
power.

These are win-win solutions because they also will reduce our
dependence on oil, reduce air pollution, protect pristine places from
oil drilling and mining, and bring many other benefits.

Rep. Henry Waxman and Sen. James Jeffords have introduced the
first-ever science-based bills to stop the worst effects of global
warming.  Even more exciting, 71 members of the House of
Representatives have already cosponsored the bill.

With strong momentum behind us, our goal is to get at least half way
to a majority of the House (109 representatives) to cosponsor the
bill by the end of September.

You can help us hit our goal of 15,000 petition-signers by signing
the petition today and then asking 5 friends to sign as well.

NJPIRGs Save Our Shores petition July 07, 2006 10:31 PM

While millions of Americans celebrated the July 4 holiday by heading
off to the beach, oil and gas industry lobbyists were pushing hard to
drill off these same beautiful coasts.

Unfortunately, despite hundreds of calls from people like you last
week, the House of Representatives passed a terrible bill that would
bring new spilling and drilling to America's beaches.

The issue now moves to the U.S. Senate. Please sign the Save Our
Shores petition calling on our senators to protect our coasts from
off-shore drilling.

Petition text:
"Our beaches are beautiful places visited by millions of Americans
each year. Oil and gas drilling would bring oil spills, air
pollution, and toxic waste. Please protect our beaches by opposing
any legislation that allows new drilling off our coasts. We can get
far more energy through efficiency and clean, renewable energy
sources than we will ever get from drilling."

Click here to sign the petition:

http://uspirg.org/uspirg.asp?id=1383&id4=ES


BACKGROUND:

Our coasts and marine waters are destinations for thousands of
vacationing families each year, sanctuary for fish and wildlife and a
critical part of America's "sea to shining sea" natural heritage.
They are the economic lifeblood for thousands of tourism and fishing
communities, providing billions of dollars of economic activity and
millions of jobs.

Oil and gas drilling would ruin our coasts and beaches. From
1990-1999, 1.8 million gallons of oil were spilled from offshore
drilling platforms and pipelines in U.S. waters--an average of almost
500 gallons a day.

Additionally, each offshore operation produces 214,000 pounds of air
pollutants each year, and tens of thousands of pounds of mercury have
been dumped around Gulf oil rigs.

There are cheaper, cleaner, faster, and longer-term energy solutions
like efficiency and renewables that will start saving consumers and
businesses money today and protect our coastal waters, beaches, and
economies.

Adopting both energy efficiency and renewable energy programs would
decrease natural gas prices by $2.05 per million cubic feet, or 37%,
in the first year.

Meanwhile, offshore oil and gas would typically not be available for
at least seven years. But we can immediately start saving money and
energy by increasing the efficiency of our cars, appliances and
buildings, and growing the amount of energy we generate from
renewable energy sources like wind and solar power.

Unfortunately, On Thursday, June 29, the U.S. House of
Representatives voted 232-187 to repeal the 25-year ban on new
off-shore drilling and bring new drilling and spilling to our coasts.

The issue now moves to the U.S. Senate. Please sign the Save Our
Shores petition calling on our senators to protect our coasts from
off-shore drilling.

"Our beaches are beautiful places visited by millions of Americans

Make Sure
New Jersey’s Big Businesses Pay Their Fair Share

Make sure New Jersey’s big, profitable businesses pay their fair share of health care costs by urging your state legislators to support the Responsible Employer Act.

 
 
 
And after you take action, you’ll start receiving e-mail updates from the New Jersey State AFL-CIO.

Take Action Today!
Despite Wal-Mart claiming only 5% of its workforce is on public health care assistance, based on the available data, Wal-Mart has an average of 13 percent of its workforce on public health care assistance. The 13 percent figure is 3.25 times higher than the national average of 4 percent for all employers and 2.6 times higher than the 5 percent average Wal-Mart states publicly. 

Last year, despite obscene profits, Wal-Mart failed to provide health care for 2,570 of its New Jersey workers and their dependents. Instead, these employees were forced to rely on government programs costing New Jersey taxpayers over $18,351,276.

It's time for all of us to stop the Wal-Mart health care crisis>>

This petition is about the legalization of same sex marriage on the state level in New Jersey. It is old but people are still signing it and it is still a relevant subject I think.
