• End Covid-19 Induced Discrimination
    Errol Blackstone, a current student at Grinnell College, said it best: "We all know that crises like the one we are facing affect marginalized people more harshly and COVID-19 has created large inequity in the education that Grinnell College has promised us." Grinnell itself states that "[b]ehaviors designed to intimidate or hinder others from accessing the benefits provided by the College are strictly prohibited." However, current Grinnell policy hinders hundreds of students from being graded based on competence rather than circumstances. It places a burden on students from marginalized groups who already carry the weight of injustice on their shoulders. We are living through the crises we study and leaning on the science that was once constrained to two-hour labs. Now is not the time to force pedagogical learning when our lives are our classroom. Our responsibility is to ourselves and each other, not our transcripts. Thank you, The Grinnell College Community (https://www.grinnell.edu/about/at-a-glance/mission)

  • Protective Personnel Equipment for All Front Line Workers
    It is important for everyone to stay healthy and to reduce the risk of spreading germs and viruses to those whom we come in contact with. Employers should be encouraging their employees to protect themselves with PPE and create a safe environment for them to work.

  • Frontline Grocery Employees Should All Be Tested
    Grocery employees come into contact with countless strangers every day, and this not only puts them and their families at risk, but also the public who depend on them to provide essential supplies. A high percentage of cases are believed to be transmitted by asymptomatic carriers. Waiting for symptoms to present merely compounds transmission and endangers employees and customers alike.

  • Pay Pizza Hut employees hazard pay
    Because employees feel at risk and afraid because they are dealing with the public and taking a risk everytime they clock in. There are cases of covid in some on the communities in which they work and they continue to come to work amd make the company money while feeling at risk.

  • Suspend home health Physical Therapy
    We can not practice the 6 foot rule, and do not have proper PPE, and it is putting the lives of our patients (whom we have pledged to protect), our families, and ourselves at risk. For home health, most of the patients have just come from the hospital and are high risk to begin with, many have likely been exposed to COVID19 due to unsafe conditions there. As home health PTs, we are carrying those germs from patient home to patient home, knowingly spreading the virus, but forced to choose between our jobs and our lives. AND we are using valuable PPE (the little we get) that could be going to someone actively saving lives. NO ONE in home health is going to die without Physical Therapy right now.

  • Close Wendys and all fast food chains and pay its employees
    The United states is in the middle of a pandemic where most businesses have closed due to corona virus spreading. Yet wendys remains open and ia forcing its employees to work out od a drive thru window does not even follow the safety guidelines of 6 ft. Were not given masks or hand sanitizer and were told to ration are gloves. Were forced to wear headset that are right on our faces that are not being disinfected between uses. Why is it our lives our not important. Since when is a double cheeseburger an essential thing for people to survive. We have kids and families that we are endangering everyday. Most people who work in fast food our senior citizens, people with disabilities and people with kids. Why are our lives not important. Let us go home or give us safe work environments and the proper items to safely do our jobs during the corona pandemic.
