Petitions you should sign

The US is one of only four countries in the developed world that does not offer paid family leave to new mothers. Urge the presidential candidates to make paid family leave a priority with this mom’s rising petition

Google maps lets you find ways to drive there on back streets or take public transport. Wouldn’t it be great if google maps also had a “bike there” function, directing people to the most bike-friendly route? Ask for that here

And freerice.com isn’t a petition, but it’s a fun way to do some good. It’s an online vocabulary quiz that keeps giving you harder words each time you get something right. And for every word you get right, it donates 20 grains of rice to the UN world food program. My vocab level got up to 47, mostly because I knew “aver” and “turpitude” and “regnant,” but I got stuck on “grabble.”
