• Special Legislative Session for the Conditional Adult Use Retail Dispensary (CAURD) program.
    Dear Petitioners, I hope this message finds you in good health and high spirits! I am writing to share an exciting initiative that holds immense potential for our community. It is my pleasure to introduce the Conditional Adult Use Retail Dispensary (CAURD) and request your support in codifying it into statute. CAURD represents a progressive step forward in ensuring responsible and controlled access to adult-use recreational cannabis. This initiative brings numerous benefits to our community, touching upon various aspects that contribute to our collective well-being. Allow me to outline a few key reasons why codifying CAURD into statute is essential: 1. Economic Growth: 2. Public Health and Safety: 3. Social Equity: 4. Tax Revenue for Community Programs: 5. Regulation and Control: Without codifying CAURD into statute, the regulations governing adult-use recreational dispensaries could be subject to frequent changes or even reversal. By establishing it as a statutory law, we guarantee stability, consistency, and effective governance, ensuring that the industry operates within a well-defined framework. There are hundreds of families facing real financial loss or worse; the prospect of bankruptcy due to their reliance on this deeply troubled business initiative. This program was designed with the intention of correcting some of the harm inflicted on the applicants through the prohibition of cannabis but we now find ourselves in a position where we are being harmed anew. While the conditional cultivators and processors were modified into the MRTA we, the justice-involved, have been neglected and left exposed to great harm. In conclusion, I kindly request your support in codifying CAURD into statute for the betterment of our community. This initiative not only presents a tremendous opportunity for economic growth but also prioritizes public health, social equity, and community development. Together, we can build a brighter future that embraces responsible cannabis use and reaps the manifold benefits that CAURD offers. Please extend your support by signing this petition and then share it with your local Senator & Assembly Leader. Here is a list of emails provided below: Democratic Senators Below Joseph P.

  • Stop Florida Bill, Beach safety absorption “SB 1588”
    Our beaches will be ruined, because law enforcement doesn’t have the proper training to deal with taking care of the beach. Tons of hardworking people who love our beaches will be put out of work by signing/passing this bill, some of these Men and women have spent there whole lives taking care of our beaches and this is how we repay them. Volusia county is know for its beautiful beaches, but people won’t come if it is not safe for them and there family by doing this we will loose many tourists who love to come and enjoy our beaches, Once again we humbly ask you to support local control of beach safety, 
Sincerely, Hope Neal

  • COP28 must commit to rural peoples' demands for food, land and climate justice
    If humanity is to survive and thrive, people's rights and sovereignty must be the center of sustainable development - not the narrow profit interests of big corporations. The COP28 climate talks is an opportunity for rural peoples to demand reforms that can help stop their communities' displacement, people's hunger, and the planet's destruction.

  • Réintégration de la Directrice de Pimprenelle
    Depuis ce lundi, nous ressentons une différence de prise en charge concernant nos enfants. Les accueils et les départs se font dans la précipitation car les sections sont regroupées pour limiter le personnel présent. Même si l'équipe ne laisse transparaitre aucune pression, nous voyons que plusieurs parents attendent pour récupérer leurs enfants, chose qui n'était pas le cas avant le départ de la directrice. Toutes les activités ont été annulées ( sorties inter-crèche , piscines, café débat, sortie au musée ) et ce même les simples balades ne sont plus possibles. Le regroupement est la première étape d'une réorganisation interne qui va mettre à mal la prise en charge de nos enfants et de leurs besoins. Moins de temps, moins d'activités pour eux, une mauvaise ambiance de travail conduisant à un turn-over alors que l'équipe est stable depuis des années. La pénurie de professionnels sera tel que le recrutement de personnes non formées sera inévitable. Qu'en sera donc de la sécurité de nos enfants ? Des protocoles d'hygiène et de toutes les connaissances que possèdent l'équipe qui nous guide dans notre rôle de parents . Merci de signer la pétition. Parents, Grands parents, oncles et tantes de nos enfants. Aujourd'hui c'est notre crèche qui est en danger. Aidez nous à faire entendre raison à l'Association.

  • Wolt: Better pay for drivers in Finland
    Drivers' pay needs to reflect current petrol prices, costs and inflation! If you agree, sign the petition, and share it everywhere, to put pressure on Wolt, to pay their drivers better! With the inflation everything has became more expensive, and instead of Wolt taking that into consideration and increase our fee per task, they have squeezed us drivers even more.

  • Stop Garment Worker Deaths #SigntheAccord
    This year marks the 10-year anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh, the deadliest industrial disaster in manufacturing history. 1,138 garment workers lost their lives, and over 2,500 more were injured as they made clothes for some of the world’s biggest fashion brands. Rana Plaza was a preventable tragedy. Clothing companies had been aware for years before the collapse that garment factories in Bangladesh did not meet international safety standards. Prior to the factory collapse, deaths from factory fires and unsafe construction were frequent, yet companies failed to take meaningful action to protect worker lives. After the horrific tragedy, dozens of brands came to the table to sign the Accord, a binding agreement to implement a transformative safety program which has stopped disasters like Rana Plaza from happening again, making workplaces safer for 2.5 million workers through factory renovations and worker education programs. While much progress on safety has been made in Bangladesh, it isn’t the only country where garment workers sew in dangerous conditions. In 2012, the Ali Enterprises factory fire in Karachi killed more than 260 garment workers. Since then, at least 135 workers have died in Pakistan’s textile and garment industry due to dangerous working conditions. Last year, the Accord was expanded to protect millions of textile and garment workers in Pakistan. More than 40 of fashion’s biggest brands have signed up to keep their workers safe, including American Eagle, ASOS, Bestseller, C&A, H&M, Primark, PVH (Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger), and Zara. While the Accord has saved lives and transformed workplace safety for a decade, the 12 brands listed below have yet to sign on, instead putting their profits above the lives of garment workers in Bangladesh and Pakistan. -Amazon -ASDA -Columbia Sportswear -Decathlon -Ikea -JC Penney -Kontoor Brands (Wrangler, Lee, and Rock & Republic) -Levi's -Target (USA) -Tom Tailor -URBN (Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, Free People) -Walmart Join us in telling this dirty dozen that enough is enough, and that their refusal to support the Accord’s life-saving factory inspections and worker safety programs isn’t acceptable. Sign the petition to protect the lives of the people who make our clothes. #RanaPlazaNeverAgain STAY UPDATED: Accord Tracker (Bangladesh): https://cleanclothes.org/accord-tracker Accord Tracker (Pakistan): https://remake.world/pakistan-brand-tracker/ Get Involved in Campaign Work: https://linktr.ee/stopgarmentworkerdeaths
