Petition to The Department of Defense
Extend Military Dependent's Insurance to Age 26
Help the children of our service members have access to the physical and mental health support they need and deserve during these uncertain times! Sign this petition to let the Department of Defense know that young adult military dependents need their affordable health care extended to their 26th birthday. TRICARE is a benefit established by law as the health care program for uniformed service members, retired service members, and their families, including dependents. The Affordable Care Act, signed into law in 2010, was created to expand access to affordable health care coverage, lower costs, and improve quality and care coordination for all Americans. Under this Act, plans and issuers that offered dependent child coverage were required to make the coverage available until the adult child reached the age of 26. This aided college age students and their families as they navigated school, careers, and the unknowns of early adulthood. TRICARE, however, was not required to make this change. For the last 11 years, TRICARE's eligibility standards for children have remained "Unmarried biological, step-children and adopted children are eligible for TRICARE until age 21 (or 23 if in college)". According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services, "About 30% of young adults are uninsured, representing more than one in five of the uninsured. This rate is higher than any other age group, and is three times higher than the uninsured rate among children. Young adults have the lowest rate of access to employer-based insurance." Now is not the time for young adults to be going without health insurance. Any military dependent who "ages out" this year will be left without access to physical and mental health support and with the unemployment rate rising, chances are they won't be getting employer-based insurance. Help make a difference for those who have sacrificed family dinners, bedtime lullabies, and hearing parent's cheers at their games while their parent was serving our country.
Petition to Jared Polis, Colorado, Colorado Department of Public Health and Enviroment
UNMASK Colorado High School Basketball Players!
It is with great concern for the overall health and safety of Colorado student athletes that we respectfully write to you and ask you to rescind the rule which you recently put into place requiring basketball players to wear masks while competing. This requirement defies a growing body of scientific data about significant negative health effects of physical exertion while wearing a mask. This is directly from the Mayo Clinic, “it's recommended that you perform low- to moderate-intensity exercise rather than vigorous exercise while wearing a mask. This is because of the decreased airflow allowed through the mask which can affect breathing and your ability to properly regulate body temperature." Basketball players not just throughout the country, but also globally are currently competing in various sports without being required to wear a mask. Whether on the field, on the court or otherwise engaged in competition, their ability to breathe while exerting themselves is not impaired. It hardly makes sense that Colorado athletics would be an outlier in this regard. To be forced to restrict one’s breathing by order of variance issued by the CDPHE to a board of athletic governance while engaging in an otherwise healthy activity not only makes the activity more difficult, but it also could threaten the health and safety of our athletes, especially for those who may have underlying breathing issues, such as asthma. To require basketball players to “mask up” while competing is a penalty they should not be required to suffer. Please amend this rule to the CHSAA variance and let our athletes breathe. Respectfully, Colorado parents and student \ athletes
Petition to Food and Drug Administration
Reduce the price of the most expensive drug Zolgensma that treats Spinal Muscular Atrophy!
Everyone should stand up for affordable access to a lifesaving drug!!! In May 2019, the Federal Drug and Administration (FDA) approved Zolgensma to treat newborns and toddlers up to age 2 who are born with SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy), which is a gene disorder. Priced at $2.1 MILLION for five years, the drug is one of the most expensive drugs to be approved. SMA Type 1, the severest form, is almost always fatal by 2 years of age, with a 50% mortality rate by 7 months, and a 90% mortality rate by 12 months. Zolgensma is too expensive to acquire even with the support of different charity organizations. Until parents find out that there is something wrong with their newborns, a few months elapse. Then until a proper diagnosis of a child is performed, several other months pass by leaving parents with little time to find adequate funds. While insurance companies may take some financial burden off parents in the US, children around the world are also diagnosed with this disorder. Because of that, the price for this specific gene therapy, Zolgensma, needs to be lowered to make it more affordable for babies that need it!!!! Right now, it's way too expensive!!! Please lower substantially the price of the drug, Zolgensma, so that families in the US and around the world can potentially be able to afford this drug for their babies! Otherwise, a lot of affected families are left without an adequate SMA drug treatment since that drug currently CARRIES A SUBSTANTIAL TAG PRICE!! SMA Type 1 is a severe type of Spinal Muscular Atrophy. A child may not be able to support their head or sit without help. They may have floppy arms and legs and problems swallowing. The biggest concern is weakness in the muscles that control breathing. Most children with type 1 SMA don't live past age 2 because of breathing problems.

Petition to UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT
National Day of Remembrance for Covid-19
Our goal is to enact a day of remembrance to honor the countless lives lost and the courageous frontline workers, past present and future, who continue the fight against the biggest pandemic in the history of the United States. Although there should be more done to honor and remember, a day is just the minimum we can do to thank those who helped the fight and honor those we lost. Our hope is that the support here will help persuade our national government to enact a day and hopefully a form of physical memorial as well. Thank you to our frontline workers for their efforts and continue fight and our hearts are with the loved ones of those lost.
