Bring back Buses to Castle Pines Village!1. DSCD school buses have been coming into Castle Pines Village for at least 20 years. a. Parents have relied on the buses to take our children to school. Suddenly, without any rationale or even any notice, the buses will not be stopping inside the gates. b. Children who used walk to the bus stop had options nearby, but the changes will now require parents to make new arrangements in an already very trying time for everyone. 2. There is a huge safety issue. a. There are no sidewalks for the kids to walk where the new bus stops are intended outside of the village. b. There is nowhere for parents to park with their kids to wait for the buses. c. There is increased danger since the buses for Middle and High School come in the dark in the winter mornings. d. Kids will need to walk 30 - 60 minutes to a bus stop outside the gates (in the dark in the mornings) if their parents can't drive them. 3. Traffic on Happy Canyon and Chase will be highly impacted. a. There is not a safe place for kids to wait for the buses, they will be lined up on Happy Canyon (in the dark in winter). b. Parents who will drive their kids to the bus stop have nowhere to park and they will be off the shoulder on Happy Canyon and off in the ditch/shoulder on Lagae/Chase. Although this year there will be a smaller number of kids on buses due to Covid restrictions, in future months/years this will be MANY cars. c. Due to the above reasons, there will be a large number of cars lined up waiting for the kids to board/un-board the buses every morning and afternoon. It will take quite a while for ALL the kids to board because of the minimal number of stops outside the village. Traffic will be very congested in these areas. 4. Bus Fees are charged for our kids to ride the bus. This is acceptable when our kids only have to walk a few blocks to a stop. Moving the bus stops to outside of the village, creating a huge inconvenience for parents and kids, does not justify the same bus fee.133 of 200 SignaturesCreated by Kimberly N.
Grant Refugee status for unarmed civilians in the Gaza stripMore innocent Gaza residents will die from starvation, lack of air and from drinking contaminated water which might lead to the annihilation of the population of the Gaza strip. We need to start an emergency airlift to take many unarmed civilians from the Jabilya refugee camp in the Gaza strip.2 of 100 SignaturesCreated by Ola A.
Take Mark Zuckerberg's name off of San Francisco General HospitalAs San Francisco residents, San Francisco General Hospital patients and staff, and other concerned citizens, we urge the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, SF City Attorney Dennis Herrera, and the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation to remove Mark Zuckerberg’s name from our city’s prestigious public hospital. Mark Zuckerberg’s failure to stop hate, lies, racism, and disinformation from running rampant on Facebook is counter to the values San Franciscans hold dear. He is being pressured to change Facebook’s policies by companies throughout the country that have stopped advertising on Facebook to #StopHateForProfit. San Francisco should support these efforts and remove any mention of Mark Zuckerberg’s name from San Francisco General Hospital until he takes real action to protect the public from lies, hate, and disinformation on the platform he founded.4,598 of 5,000 SignaturesCreated by Andrea B.

The real threat of our grandchildren having an inhabitable climate and planet.3 of 100 SignaturesCreated by Anthony D.
Rust Belt Renewal InitiativeThe Rust Belt Renewal Initiative is a proposal for the United States to adopt a decade-long national commitment to rebuilding the once-mighty base of the industrial Midwest as the hub of a revived American manufacturing capability. The RBRI would be powered not by toxic fossil fuels but by clean and abundant, locally generated, renewable sources of energy, primarily solar and wind, to produce new generations of energy-efficient, carbon-free, electricity-powered transportation, appliances and other durable goods to the world-class standards of safety and reliability for which American-made products were once widely celebrated. RBRI will focus our personal and collective creativity on meeting the unique requirements of a 21st century economy and society while effectively addressing the paramount challenge of our time, reducing the disruptive impacts of climate change.4 of 100 SignaturesCreated by Jimmy D.
Bangladesh Must End Internet Ban in Rohingya Refugee CampsThe Rohingya have suffered decades of systematic persecution in their home country of Myanmar. They have been denied citizenship, freedom of movement, access to education and health services. They have been subject to land confiscations, arbitrary arrests, forced labour, extortion, torture, rape, mass killings, the destruction of whole villages and other forms of collective punishment. Myanmar military clearance operations have forced more than 800 000 Rohingya to flee over the border to Bangladesh since August of 2017. Myanmar stands accused of genocide against the Rohingya at the International Court of Justice. The Myanmar government disputes the allegations and has failed to create conditions that would enable the Rohingya to return safely to their homelands. Bangladesh now provides shelter to approximately 1 million Rohingya. Rohingya have relied on mobile phone and internet access to communicate these abuses to the rest of the world. This access has also provided lifelines to families fleeing from attrocities. In September 2019, mobile phone and internet restrictions were brought in by Bangladesh for Rohingya genocide survivors in the refugee camps. The Bangladesh government’s internet blackout and phone restrictions at Rohingya refugee camps are currently obstructing humanitarian groups from addressing the COVID-19 threat. The shutdown is risking the health and lives of over a million people, including nearly 900,000 refugees in Cox’s Bazar and the Bangladeshi host community by hindering aid groups’ ability to provide emergency health services and rapidly coordinate essential preventive measures. Aid workers and community leaders rely on WhatsApp and other internet-based communication tools to coordinate emergency services and share important information in the camps. The shutdown prevents effective dissemination of coronavirus information as well as impeding aid workers’ ability to conduct “contact tracing” to contain transmission of the virus. Rohingya survivors also need to use the internet and mobile phones to maintain links with home and contact family members with whom they have been separated from due to the genocide. It is also their only means to access news and information. The internet is the primary source of education for youth in the camps, who have severely limited access to formal schooling. The internet and phone restrictions must therefore be permanantly lifted.1,094 of 2,000 SignaturesCreated by Shabnam M.

Letting prisoners use cellphones makes sense – now more than ever*Connection to families is good for prisoners and prisons. *Because of the corona-virus prisoners can receive no visitations. State sanctioned prison phones present a sanitation risk that may spread the virus. *The cost to use state phones is prohibitive for many prisoners. *Cellphones are lifelines that keep prisoners connected to hope. Hopeless people are the ones who become violent and self-destructive. *Human connection is central to life and people connected to families, especially children, and friends are far more likely to re-enter society successfully and not reoffend. The ability to call a parent could be transformative. *Time spent connected to families is time spent not being violent in the yard and not stewing in rage, frustration and depression. Cellphone use to connect with families engenders less disruptive and calmer prisoner behavior. Managed access technology can track and monitor all calls and maintain prison security, the same as state phones are monitored.2,053 of 3,000 SignaturesCreated by Will S.
