3. Stop The Silencing Campaigns

Fathers' rights movements have continued to campaign against women and children speaking out about domestic violence and child abuse. They say that it's against fathers but if they didn't hurt anyone, what have they got to hide?

There are good men out there who do not beat their wives or abuse their children and understand that we need to know about these things so we can be there for those we care about that have been unfortunate enough to endure these appalling acts.

Unfortunately there are some that want us to be silent and to be forced to endure such atrocities alone and without help or understanding.

Awareness is the key to ending such oppression and is the very reason as to why we have the "freedom of information" as a human right.

Help us beat violence supportive attitudes so that one day all violence and oppression is apart of history and no more.

4. The Moment of Silence

For a long time now the moment of silence has been looked down upon in schools because people feel like it is both a waste of time and a way to enforce prayer/religion on people. The truth of the matter is it is neither.

The "moment of silence" is, as described by wikipedia, the expression for a period of silent contemplation, prayer, reflection, and meditation. There are three options that a moment of silence allows students to do and only one of them is prayer. Students can think about what they plan to do that day and calm down before school starts. This provides students and teachers with a more efficient learning environment.

In conclusion, the moment of silence in schools is in no way enforcing religion upon students, because it provides students with many more options, and it is not an excuse for students to waste class time, because it calms classes down providing a more efficient learning environment.

5. Break the silence on "abuse" in schools

A petition to break the silence on what is going on in schools with regard to the way the children are being treated at school.

We feel that they are being ill treated at the moment instead of feeling safe.

We want to make a stand against that, so that children feel safe and are treated properly.
