Health & Wellness  (tags: domestic violence, South Carolina, Governor Haley, Arkansas reform by Candidate Ross, murders, women's health and safety )

Domestic abuse and domestic murder rates have dropped steeply nationwide. But not in South Carolina, which has the highest rate of male on female murders in the country - 300 in just one decade!
Please Sign: North Carolina, Stop Secret StingRay Cellphone Spying
Society & Culture  (tags: StingRays, Durham, Raleigh, Charlotte, Wilmington, North Carolina, surveillance, cellphone spying, Jennifer Harjo, Senator Goolsby, Harris Corporation, Florida )

An ACLU investigation found that police in several NC cities were using spying devices that trick your cellphone into disclosing private information. But the police don't have to have a warrant to use them. This is a violation of our Constitutional rights
Please Sign: UK, Stop Using Immigration Detainees as Cheap Labor
Society & Culture  (tags: immigration detainees, exploitation, UK, Serco, G4S, GEO, UK Home Office, Corporate Watch, Labor, Workers Rights, Britain )

UK immigration detention centers have found a not so creative way to save on costs. They're exploiting detainees in a way that's reminiscent of slave labor - to save themselves millions of pounds.
Please Sign: VA, Offer Pituitary Screening to All Veterans!
Health & Wellness  (tags: pituitary, hypopituitarism, veterans, EID blasts, PTSD, TBI, hormonal imbalance, corisol, adrenalin, depression, suicide, US Veterans Administration, Dept of Veteran Affairs )

Pituitary.org says that 1 in 5 people suffer from pituitary dysfunction - even more so if you have suffered any kind of jolt to the head, as have many war veterans. Screening for this condition will certainly save lives and quality of life for many vets.
Please Sign: Russia, Stop Wild Orca Captures!
Animals  (tags: Orca, Russia, Sea World, Blackfish, animal cruelty, whales, Far East Russia Orca Project, animal rights )

Susan
- 15 days ago - thepetitionsite.com
Since release of the film, "Blackfish," there has been an increased worldwide outcry over the capture of Orcas. But that hasn't stopped Russia from taking two from the wild in the last weeks. Russia and every country must ban this cruelty now!
Please Sign: Rikers, Stop Beating Up Kids in Jail!
Society & Culture  (tags: Rikers jail complex, violence, juvenile offenders, brain injury, DOJ investigation, Dr. Wayne Gordon, Dr. Corrigan, prison reform, New York Department of Correction )

Susan
- 26 days ago - thepetitionsite.com
Rikers prison has a high number of juveniles who suffered brain injuries before being incarcerated. So why are the jail guards beating these kids in the head? Reform cannot come fast enough. Rikers must get rid of these guards - Now!
Please Sign: ESPN, Reprimand Panelist Who Implied Batteried Women Provoke Their Beatings
Society & Culture  (tags: women, violence, Stephen A. Smith, ESPN, NFL, Ray Rice, battering, blaming the victim, provocation, domoestic abuse, harsher penalties )

Susan
- 33 days ago - thepetitionsite.com
Although ESPN panelist Stephen A. Smith finally made a heartfelt apology over his statement insinuating woman might provoke beatings, it took him a while to get it. It's reflective of a tolerance for domestic abuse in sports that ESPN needs to address
Please Sign: Demand An End to Secret Fracking Chemicals
Environment  (tags: fracking, chemicals, secret sauce, EPA, Halliburton, Monroe, County Ohio, chemical spills, water pollutions, explosions, environmental hazards, community and neighborhood hazards )

Susan
- 37 days ago - thepetitionsite.com
Last week a fracking chemical fire and spill in Monroe County, OH killed 70,000 fish. But Halliburton took 5 days to disclose details about the chemicals it uses. The EPA must step in now and ensure these chemicals are no longer kept secret!
Please Sign: Ask Obama to Keep His Promise to Improve His Clemency Record
Society & Culture  (tags: Clemency, nonviolent offenders, Heather and Ricky Minor, ACLU report A Living Death, life imprisonment without parole, commutation, President Obama, madated sentencing, prison, children, human rights )

Susan
- 48 days ago - thepetitionsite.com
Now serving life sentences, thousands of nonviolent offenders - some only teens at the time of their incarceration - are counting on Obama to keep his word about improving his poor clemency record.
Please Sign: Massachusetts, SWAT Teams Are Not Corporations!
Society & Culture  (tags: Massachusetts, SWAT Teams, militarization of police forces, ACLU, Public records, military surplus, police state, corporate immunity )

Susan
- 55 days ago - thepetitionsite.com
Massachusetts swat teams claim they're private corporations and immune from public records laws. But an investigation by the ACLU found out differently. The public has the right to know because we don't want our neighborhoods turned in to war zones
