Petition to U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate
$2000/month to every American #moneyforthepeople #covid19
**UPDATE: As the Biden administration takes office, the country is deeply struggling. We’re out of work and out of cash. It took nine months for Congress to send a second stimulus check, and just moments to spend it. Another single check won’t solve our problems – people are just too far behind. Like we’ve been saying from the beginning of this pandemic, people need to know when the next check is coming. And the best thing our government can do right now is send emergency money to the people on a monthly basis. Sign to join our movement to get recurring checks to the people. My name is Stephanie, and I am one of millions of Americans who fear for my financial future because of this coronavirus crisis. With businesses and schools closing across the country to control the spread of this virus, many people have already lost their jobs. Others are being forced to stay home. This is catastrophic for working families like mine. I’m calling on Congress to support families with a $2,000 payment for adults and a $1,000 payment for kids immediately, and continuing regular checks for the duration of the crisis. Otherwise, laid-off workers, furloughed workers, the self-employed, and workers dealing with reduced hours will struggle to pay their rent or put food on the table. My husband and I own a restaurant in Denver and these past two weeks have been a blur. Our restaurant community is wrestling with seeing everything we all have worked so hard for irrevocably changed. Our hearts were breaking as we watched our staff divide the ingredients in our kitchen to bring to their homes: a dismal token for employees who worked tirelessly every day. Our talented and cherished team, some of whom have been with us since we opened our doors 15 years ago, are now without an income. Like our team, my family has lost all of the income from our restaurant, and business owners and the self-employed can't claim unemployment. This is the story of America right now. For our team and other Americans who can claim unemployment, even the maximum payments will not be enough for most people to continue paying their bills – and avoid slipping into poverty. The facts are, even successful small businesses can’t go months with their doors closed. But supplying Americans with monthly support until they can get back on their feet can save our communities from financial ruin. We need immediate checks and recurring payments so that we can keep our heads above water. Congress needs to make sure that we won’t be left financially ruined for doing our part to keep the country healthy.

Unemployment relief improvement
-Gaps in boosted unemployment insurance (UI) benefits for recipients during the covid 19 pandemic should be retroactively filled to coincide with the continuity of the unemployment, and not with the inaction of federal or state legislatures, respectively. -Indiana congress and executive must help work to modernize and reform infrastructure at the Indiana DWD to respond effectively in crises and preparedness of unemployment situations both long and short terms; including but not limited to: training of response crisis staff who can work part and full time during emergency unemployment situations, boosted wages for any part time or temporary worker, boosted wages and benefits including paid leave for regular DWD workers during the pandemic, any actions that cuts down wait times, helps DWD workers, and connects unemployment insurance recipients with maximum appropriate benefits, without fraud. -The DWD in coordination with executive and legislative branches; and major television, print, and social media must communicate the qualifications for unemployment insurance and related details to recipients such that this knowledge becomes salient among the general public even in times when major parts of our infrastructure are inoperable such as now during the pandemic.

Petition to Voters, Welsh Government, The People
Force Joel Osteen to pay back any and all government aid funded by taxpayers.
Joel Osteen and his church recently received over four million dollars in taxpayer-funded government aid. For his church that does not pay taxes. If you believe this is unfair to taxpayers, please stand with us. This is not an issue of religion, this is not an issue of who you believe in. This is an issue of fairness. His business is the church, which apparently is doing quite well to afford this man a home and estate that is several million dollars. Whilst constantly riding in private jets and doing things normally reserved for the richest of people. This man is no longer a servant of Christ or his people, but a servant to the almighty dollar. It’s clear that he is manipulating the system to maintain massive amounts of wealth. This is incredibly unfair to people that follow him, as they may think what he’s doing is justified in some sick way. Our government and this man should be held accountable for this gross overpayment and blatant disregard for taxpayer’s well-being. While the average American is struggling with covid, bills, work, and every other daily stress, this man is banking over four million dollars of our money. If you believe this is not to aid in his message of love and kindness of man and woman in the vision of God, or you simply believe his acts are unfair and downright slimy, please sign this petition to force him to pay back any government aid that was recieved. Thank you.

Audit the overspending on the 100 Neptune Ave site
100 Neptune ave. in Brooklyn NY is chosen as the site for the future homeless shelter. However it is is hazardous to the health of prospected residents; it was never used as a residential space, but a repair shop and a car dealership, with possible poisonous remnants. The space allocated is too small for the projected 170 residents and 60 staff and would not allow residents to have adequate social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID and other infectious diseases, it will not allow them to have privacy or safety. There are also train tracks located directly above the property, exposing the residents to noise and electromagnetic pollution. We feel that the funds allocated for this project, 8.5 Million PLUS cost of remediation to make this space habitable, much less, comfortable, is extremely frivolous spending considering the city budget deficits. Our homeless community deserves permanent, safer, more appropriate conditions that will allow them to begin the road to their own habitat.
Petition to President Joe Biden
PREDATORY LOAN CREDIT AMNESTY FOR AFRICAN-AMERICANS
We the undersigned request Pres. Joe Biden sign an executive order granting Predatory Lending and Front Loading Interest Amnesty to those classified as African Americans, American Descendants of Slavery ( ADOS) or once classified as Negroes, Coloreds, Copper Colored, and Black Indians of North America. We ask that the executive order instruct Pres. Biden economic team and Commerce Secretary, Gov. Gina Reimondo to create a plan designated to specifically eliminate past negative Credit history caused by Predatory Lending and Front Loaded Interest, reported by the three credit reporting agencies: Equifax; Experian; TransUnion; they are all publicly traded , for profit companies. African Americans, American Descendants of Slavery (ADOS) or once classified as Negroes, Coloreds, Black Indians of North America our communities have a challenge with not only everyday life but economics. We are the primary targets for predatory lenders and unusual lending practices. If we come togather one step at a time maybe, we can help some people in the long run. Our first step is to bar pre-calculated interest adjustment loans. Companies have created something called interest adjustment loans. This allows the companies to charge the entire amount of interest on the loans before the time accrue. They list principle and combined interest as account balance so there is no consideration of early payments. Second step is to expose the financial consequences of redlining and correct this institutional racism that is common practice that started in the segregation era and continue to this day. Predatory Lending and Front-Loading interest businesses specifically target minorities and allows the Racial Wealth Gap to continue to grow exponentially and create areas of bad credit communities. According to ADOS co- founder Antonio Moore, the average White middle-class Family has $120,000 in wealth and the average Black middle-class Family has $1,700. So if the White bread winner lose his or her job they have $120,000 to draw off while the Black Family has $1,700. Bad credit makes it difficult to get a good paying job to getting a descent place to live. We have generational members of Boomers, Gen- X, Gen- Y, and Gen- Z with bad credit because of these Predatory Lending and Front-Loaded Industry. These companies will continue to be disrespectful and condescending to our Comunities. One example of many is the practice of placing kill switches in cars. Some car dealerships will turn the car off if a customer is late on payment. Not only is this disrespectful but dangerous. Let us force them to complete in the free market and stop creating bad loans. In the absence of true economic inclusion or policies specifically targeting the racial wealth gap, Predatory Loan Credit Amnesty For African Americans is a grassroot effort seeking a fresh start in the community. Will you join us in our efforts to bring financial Literacy and proper Legislation in our communities paving a way to reducing the wealth gap and inequality.

THE CENSUS WEALTH EMPOWERMENT ACT
THE CENSUS WEALTH EMPOWERMENT ACT We, the undersigned support a bold step forward with incalculable value for all US citizens through the passage of the Census Wealth Empowerment Act (CWEA). You are encouraged to share this information as you deem appropriate to further this message and mission. The Census Wealth Empowerment Act (CWEA) takes an undeniable stand against poverty. The mission of the Act is to minimize the number of citizens on the poverty rolls and provide tangible hope and support to every child born in the US. The narrative changes from the figurative American Dream to an America that provides the economic tools to construct a ladder to success. The CWEA calls for escrowing $2,000 a year for each US citizen over the age of 18 and then direct depositing $20,000 to those citizens every 10 years following the cadence of the US Census. In support of the Act and its empowerment message, join me in ensuring that every member of the US House of Representatives and the US Senate receives a copy of this document. Share it with your US Representative and your US Senators and ask them to introduce, sponsor, or co-sponsor into Federal law the Census Wealth Empowerment Act. In addition, please share the information with acquaintances, family members, friends, and neighbors, and encourage their involvement in the activation of this redistribution of wealth and the financial empowerment of each US citizen. Civil rights organizations, community advocacy groups, and justice activists should receive this information as well so it can be added to their agendas for change. The Census Wealth Empowerment Act concept is a powerful one. Let us not deny any US citizen the opportunity to directly be a part of a national societal paradigm shift toward economic justice. Together, we the people have the power to bring this initiative to full fruition. The elimination of poverty in the United States of America can commence on January of 2030 with the practical implementation of the strategy contained in this document through the passage of a Federal Bill. Such an Act would minimize current levels of spending on Aid to Dependent Children (ADC) and the Criminal Justice System, as well as reduce spending for anti-poverty programs. From the equable distribution of funds, each US citizen will have an open channel for the creation of opportunities, the transformation of ideas into potential, and the transition of dreams into generational wealth creation. This single initiative shall provide citizens from lower-income segments of the population with the opportunity to deliver on their creative innovations, leading to unparalleled human talent discovery. This immense vein of untapped human potential will lead to exceptional individual achievements and unforeseen national accomplishments. The Census Wealth Empowerment Act (CWEA) takes an undeniable stand against poverty. The The CWEA puts an end to non-wealth development in a country possessing enough wealth to eliminate poverty within its borders. Such opportunity in 21st Century America was carved by words etched in its 18th Century beginnings. Every US citizen has the right to freedom from poverty. These principled words ring with a greater truth as the resources now exist to fulfill the reality of their earlier pronouncement, proclaimed in the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence, that: 1) All men are created equal. 2) All men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. 3) Among these rights are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. 4) To secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. 5) The government gets its power from the citizens it governs. 6) Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it. 7) Different forms of government are like an experiment. If the form of government is no longer able to protect the rights of its citizens, it needs to be changed or overthrown and replaced. The Census Wealth Empowerment Act places premium importance on the economic stimulus of individual citizens who comprise the nation. The nation can only be as rich as Its poorest citizens. Wealth accumulation accrued by the smallest percentage of the population should not be forever hidden from the masses. Wealth should become the mantle that moves across all diversity of humanity. The entire spectrum of the citizenry should not be denied the enjoyment of peace and comfort as a state of life. The CWEA ensures the elevation of life for all US citizens. Please visit www.censuswealthempowermentact.org if you have questions or need for clarification. Your comments and suggestions about furthering this message and mission to build this effort into a movement are valued and welcomed. Visit the website provided in the heading of this letter to leave a comment or access more information. Together, we can empower a bright future for all Americans.

"50k SAGAD ibigay na!!!" Para sa mga kawani ng Unibersidad ng Pilipinas
50K sa SAGAD ibigay na!!! SAGAD na SAGAD na po ang paghihirap nating mga Reps at administratibong kawani ng UP sa kabila ng mga pagtaas ng presyo ng mga pangunahing bilihin at sa mahigit na sampung buwang “Lockdown” na pinapatupad ng administrasyong Duterte. Matatandaan pong nagbigay nang promosyon sa mga faculty ng UP ang administrasyon ng UP mula 2014 hangang 2018, at kakarampot na horizontal promosyon lamang sa mga kawani na REPS at Kawaning Administratibo. Ang hinihingi nating benepisyo para sa mga kawaning SAGAD na sa horizontal na promosyon ay hindi parin ibinibigay sa kabila ng pangako ng ating Pangulong Danilo L. Concepcion na “Nasa puso nya ang Reps at Admin staff ng UP” Sa ginanap na seminar noong 2018 sa NCPAG na inorganisa ng UP Faculty Regent at UP Staff Regent. Sa kasalukuyan ay meron po tayong 9,946 nakawaning REPS at administratibo sa buong UP System at 2,431 po sa mga ito ay nasa kategorya na ng SAGAD o hindi na pwedeng magkaroon ng horizontal promotion at ito ay 24% ng kabuuang bilang ng mga kawani sa buong UP na syang mas nangangailangan dahil mas nakararami po dito ay mabababa ang salary grade. Magsama-sama po tayong mga kawani ng Unibersidad ng Pilipinas SAGAD man o hindi na ipaabot sa administrasyon ng UP ang ating kahilingang “50K sa SAGAD ibigay na” sa pamamagitan ng PAGLAGDA para sa ating signature campaign. MARAMI PONG SALAMAT SA INYONG PAKIKIISA. MABUHAY PO TAYONG MGA MANGAGAWA NG UNIBERSIDAD NG PILIPINAS. Bilang ng mga SAGAD sa Unibersidad ng Pilipinas [pangkalahatan]Admin Staff 2,236Reps 195
