Our problem to work on is world hunger. Millions of people die daily from hunger. People who suffer from hunger can turn into very sick illnesses. On an average, 852 million people die each year from this. Feeding America has policies such as: No child is at risk of hunger, families have a solid foundation by having access to food, and also meals on wheels. Why do I want to work on this? I want to work on this because millions of people die from hunger while we take things for granted. One thing I would do to stop world hunger is start encouraging people to donate to Red Cross and other organizations that involve helping world hunger. Lastly, one more thing I would do it not waste food, and stop taking more than what we can even chew.

The problem im addressing is that the curfew in naugatuck ct should be at 12. The curfew that is located in Naugatuck is 11 p.m and i feel that 12 would be a better time at night for under the age of teens.

The project im working on is renewing the skatepark in my town. Since the current condition of our skatepark is very poor, many people choose to skate in the streets and private property which is dangerous and illegal. Police officers consider skateboarding vandalism and a crime. I want to work on this because a new skatepark will attract more people to a safe place to skateboardm, rather than in the streets. First i would create a petition and get hundreds of signatures from town residents that support the idea. After this i would bring up the idea to town officals, and begin a found raiser.

The policy I am addressing in this blog is that of the vandalism of public property in the form graffiti. Have you ever been walking around town with your family or a group of peers when an image that is annoying or disturbing causes you to take a detour? Of course it is all over the place in Naugatuck. I plan to end the vandalism of public and private property by starting a petition and going to a person of power who feels the same and endorse the issue

The problem that my group is working on is that we want to renovate the roads of Naugatuck. We would like to make them safer by adding more crosswalks and bike lanes. Also, we want to renovate the roads, sidewalks, and street signs to create a safer environment for all citizens.

Suzana and I are planning on helping the community by feeding the less fortunate families who need extra help to provide for themselves. we plan on contacting cullinary and the cafeteria so we can donate all our left over food that doesnt get eaten to local homeless shelters and soup kitchens. in order to do this we need to contact our principal and the places we want to reach out to and get our plan approved.

A huge problem affecting our home town (Naugatuck)is Graffiti. Graffiti is an eyesore and can be offensive, often containing profanity and explicit images. Graffiti can also promote violence through images like gang signs. Not only is it bothering to see, but it is against the national policy. This "art" is a destruction of private and public property, and is against the law. We are sick and tired of not being able to walk around town without seeing explicit images or offensive language. Graffiti, however, is a large beast to tackle. In our opinion, the best way to approach this is by getting the community on our side. Community service is now a requirement for new students, and making clean-up a viable option to gain these hours would give us dozens of students eager to help.

The Naugatuck Dog Pound is filled with homeless, needy cats and dogs. They are only taken care of by volunteer policemen that are not able to visit everyday. Due to this inability to visit, the animals end up being neglected. It is our responsibility as citizens to draw attention to this problem, and provide the animals with the care that they need to survive. This issue is very dear to us, because we are active animal advocates. It will also create an overall safer community in the town of Naugatuck. It is our goal to start a fundraising and volunteer program to get animals off the streets, and into safe homes. Our first course of action will be to investigate further the current volunteer situation.

The issue that Carla and I propose to work is texting while driving. We chose this issue because its crucial to make sure that the roads are safe to drive on. It's very important for drivers to give their complete attention to the road for the safety to the citizens and themselves. We chose this topic particulary to spread the word that texting while driving can increase fatal accidents and the death rate. Our goal is to inspire others to wait to answer a text message to make sure the society is more safe as a whole. Our first step is to survey students on how they feel about texting while driving, have they done it, and what they believe is the most common cause of accidents while not paying attention to the road.

The problem that our group is working on is bringing a movie theater back to Naugatuck. This is a big problem because many people, especially kids, have nothing to do in Naugatuck. This would increase safety for kids and parents so they wouldn't need to go to the mall at night. This would help bring our hometown back into business and better it for the current and potential citizens of Naugatuck. We would try getting a petition or talk to the mayor about how this would work.
