DuPont: Stop putting Wall Street over my health

I am dying from C-8, a chemical that DuPont deliberately dumped into the Ohio River and landfills, where it made its way into the water me, my family, and thousands of others drink every day. DuPont already agreed to compensate me and the other victims of its misconduct, but the company is delaying helping us in order to line the pockets of a couple of Wall Street billionaires. People are dying. It’s time to put health over Wall Street profits.

Abolish super delegates in Oregon

Maine has done it. Oregon should follow suit. Super delegates were created to thwart the will of the people. It's time for super delegates to go the way of the dinosaurs. Super delegates are an affront to democracy. Getting rid of super delegates won't in and of itself democratize the Democratic Party, but it is a good first step.

Demand Fairness For Verizon Workers

39,000 CWA and IBEW Union Workers at Verizon had no choice but to go on strike. Verizon's plan at the bargaining table was to control our lives by telling us where we can live and if and when we will see our families. A corporation that makes 1.5 Billion dollars a month in profits can afford to treat their workers and retirees with respect. Tell Verizon to treat their workers and retirees with fairness and dignity by taking their incredibly retrogressive demands off the table.

Another bully in the lunchroom?

Making it harder for kids struggling with hunger to eat school lunch isn't "fiscally responsible," it's just short-sighted. When kids are hungry they can't learn. If we want to build a prosperous America, we need to make sure every child has a fair shot. Please strip out changes to the National School Lunch Program that raise community eligibility requirements, and make it harder for students who qualify to receive school lunch.

Tell Obama: Don't Deport Immigrants to their Death! Stop the Raids!

Our community has been directly impacted by these raids by having ICE agents engaged in civil right violations—from showing up at doors unannounced, entering homes without warrants, waking up sleeping children, arresting students at bus stops on their way to school, and taking away families to detention centers, where loved ones will spend months until they are deported back to some of the most dangerous countries in the world.

Obama: Don't double down on COAL in the Four Corners

President Obama, we urge you to reconsider your administration’s support for coal-fired power in the Four Corners region. It is a legacy unfit for any leader, much less the leadership of a country once considered pioneers in technological and environmental innovation. This extension condemns another generation to a quarter century of poor air and water quality and degraded public health. It is an economic gamble that robs the region of the opportunity to invest in a foundation for a clean and economically sustainable energy future. Supporting investment in a dying and dangerous industry, instead of a clean and growing one,...

Release Henry and Offer TPS Protection to Central Americans Fleeing Violence

Less than 24 hours after lending his voice and sharing his story to act against the deportations of Central American immigrants in Los Angeles, the young Guatemalan Henry Sanchez Carias, 18, was arrested by agents of the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). His arrest has prompted a campaign for his release. Sanchez arrived in the United States in 2015 to join his parents, who have lived in this country since 2001, and to escape the gang activities in his neighborhood, which had already affected his brother. On Tuesday, he agreed to be featured in a media event organized...

GMO Mushrooms are not worth it

Cutting up complex genetic material is a risky game -- and for what? In the case of whiter mushrooms, it's just not worth it. In light of scientific uncertainty about the long-term health and ecological risks associated with GMOs, we urge you to perform substantial and meaningful safety tests on the CRISPR-edited white button mushrooms. Until those tests are done, these mushrooms should not be approved for sale.

Bring Sucely home to her daughter and husband!

Sucely is a DACA beneficiary. On May 16th, while coming back to the U.S. from a mission trip in Guatemala, she was denied access to board the plane because an airline representative said that her advance parole permit was expired. Her advance parole permit was set to expire that day at 11:59pm, but not prior. They should have allowed her to board the plane, but they didn't. Please help bring Sucely home by signing this petition and sharing it! From Tomas (Sucely's husband): "My wife and I have a three-year-old daughter, we both attend a Christian church here in Fort...

Stop giving public pension money to Wall Street hedge funds now.

Reducing the investment in high-priced hedge funds and investing more prudently could save New Jersey taxpayers $20 billion over the next 30 years without making a single change to the pensions of the workers. Public Worker pension funds shouldn't be a piggy bank for Wall Street financiers. Stop the overuse of high-priced hedge funds now.

VICTORY: Tribune Papers Spared From Koch Empire

When the Tribune Company went up for sale, it was widely reported that the Koch brothers were interested in acquiring its newspapers - including the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune. The billionaire Kochs and their tea party politics presented a clear threat to independent journalism, so several organizations, including Forecast the Facts, Courage Campaign, and Working Families started MoveOn Petitions asking Tribune Company CEO Peter Liguori not to sell to the Koch brothers.
