End prejudice against single parents who rent and receive benefit top-ups
I am a single parent. I'm also a professional. This seems like a contradiction in terms to many landlords. I work part time so I can care for my child and am lucky enough to receive a small top-up each month of housing benefit. BUT I cannot rent a flat because most landlords' insurance doesn't cover tenants on housing benefit. How are parents like me meant to house our families with these ridiculous insurance policies in place? I demand an end to this prejudice. I am a working parent. Not a second class citizen. I am calling on my local MP to help me escalate this issue, which is stopping thousands of families like mine from getting a home. Ultimately, I want these unfair insurance policies scrapped and replaced with fairer policies for hardworking single parents.

Lancaster private student landlords to cancel 3rd term rent for University students
With the recent news that Lancaster University are cancelling 3rd term rent for on-campus and Chancellor’s Wharf students who have permanently vacated their accommodation, the attention must now turn to private student landlords and Purpose-Built Student Accommodation providers (PBSAs). Aparto’s Caton Court Accommodation has rightfully announced refunds for 3rd term rent already paid and rent cancellation for any students who move out by 24th April. It is now time for other private landlords and PBSA’s in Lancaster to follow suit. Many other private student accommodation providers in other cities have wavered/refunded rent or terminated contracts for students who are no longer residing in the properties including Aparto, IQ, Unite and Student Castle - many more will hopefully follow in the coming days. All university students, and especially those in their final year such as myself who now face final exams, online dissertation hand ins and the loss of saying goodbye to many of our friends - the last thing we need is the added stress of wondering how we will meet rent, in a city we no longer reside. CRM, and others, while being a privately rented accommodation not affiliated with LUSU or the University, still have an obligation and responsibility to the oftentimes young students they accommodate, to ensure they don't face additional mental stress and financial hardship as a result of their management of the building. I, a resident of Damside student accommodation until the COVID-19 lockdown, reached out to CRM (the company that runs and manages Damside and many other PBSAs across the UK) to ask for a discount or cancellation of my 3rd term rent or at the very least a reduction to a rate that will be covered by the minimum student finance loans, which are as it stands, not enough. I outlined the financial and personal constraints I’d been facing as a result of no longer working my part-time job or even residing in the Lancaster accommodation, and expressed that I was unable to meet the due rent. I was responded to with a generic email, and an arrears letter the following day from CRM accusing me of breaching my tenancy agreement. I am just one of many students in this position. This cannot possibly continue. It is no surprise that the COVD-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on all of us as individuals and the revenue generated for companies that operate in our communities. However, students at the beginning of their careers should NOT be bearing this financial hardship of this, while private landlords remain unscathed. Why is there no compromise? Please sign and continue to urge your private landlord to waver/reduce/refund 3rd term rent!

remove white supremacists/hate group affiliated individuals from police departments
In 2006 and 2015 the FBI has investigated and named the infiltration of Law Enforcement agencies, across the nation, by white supremacist affiliated individuals as one of the biggest risks to national security. While a few groups of officers have been outed here and there there has been no effort to address this issue across the board. The Plain View Project documents, in realtime, posts by police officers, current and retired, in support of white power/hate ideology. The Southern Poverty Law Center has presented testimony on this issue, in the military, to congress. Despite all this work no national effort to remove white power/hate group aligned members of law enforcement has happened. In the early 2000s the FBI mandated that the catholic church run background checks on all employees/volunteers to look for potential pedophiles in response to the widespread history of sex abuse within the church. These background checks were done and where threats were found they were removed. If the FBI can force a church to investigate its own they can require the same of public employees that carry hate in their hearts and minds. A white supremacist can never be an agent of equal justice. Its time to find and remove anyone, aligned with hate/white supremacy, from a system thats meant to treat all equally.

Demand All Incarcerated Individuals Are Given Extra Credit For Serving During COVID
Essentially, prisoners receive some extra credit for ‘doing COVID time’ during the pandemic. In addition to being exposed to significantly greater risks of contracting COVID-19 in the prison environment where inmates cannot wear masks, adhere to social distancing or abide by other recommendations of the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention], inmates serving time now are often confined to their cells for 20 hours or more a day, and are not permitted to leave their cells to make phone calls or visit with family members. Many have not had visits with family since March 2020. Being in lockdown for 20 or more hours a day is extremely punitive. Many of these inmates are in lockdown for extended periods of time merely because they are serving time during the COVID-19 pandemic. The legal System disproportionately affects Black and Latino communities that are over charged with more serous crimes that carry longer harsher sentences. This often means that the watered down bills still leave our communities without relief during this Pandemic. #Covid #incarceration #Racial Justice While these regular, lengthy lockdowns are not intended as punitive measures, but rather are a necessary tool to combat the spread of COVID-19. The problem with that rationale is even if the motive is not nefarious and is well-intended, the bottom line is it results in inmates being subjected to much harsher conditions akin to solitary confinement. Mass incarceration targets Black people. Black people are experiencing incarceration are being strategically isolated from loved ones. Virginia fails to meet the minimum requirements to mitigate outbreaks. Courts and hearings have been routinely delayed. Family members like myself feel all inmates should be given extra credit during this time. No exclusions, since they would overly affect the Black and Latino Community that are given harsher convictions and sentences. My Grandson's is pictured here and his is one of many youth caught in the youth pipeline to Prison. He is a what they call a #Crossover Youth Will you stand up for the protection for incarcerated individuals? Will you give voice to those that have no voice? It’s an important step forward in transforming our crisis-ridden criminal legal system, which disproportionately harms Black and Brown communities. #criminaljustice #system #advocate #Family #truama #reentry
