Tell Congress: Don't let Big Pharma hijack the 21st Century Cures Act

We need to invest in medical innovation in America -- and Congress has spent years negotiating a pretty decent bill. But in the final days of this Congress, that 21st Century Cures bill has been hijacked by Big Pharma and big Republican donors. Tell the House and the Senate to stand up to Big Pharma and vote NO on this bill until we get a better deal on the 21st Century Cures Act.

President Obama: Prevent Trump's Muslim Registry

President Obama must immediately revoke the regulatory framework of the Bush-era registry program called National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS), which predominantly targeted Muslim immigrants based on their countries of origin. In the hands of Donald Trump, this program can potentially be used to target, register, and deport Muslims--on a much larger scale than previously implemented. This is the moment to shut this program down once and for all and to resist any new effort.

Sever Trump's DC Hotel Lease

Sever the rental agreement with the Trump Organization for the Old Post Office Pavilion in Washington, D.C., and revoke its tenancy immediately, before the terms of the lease prohibiting conflicts of interest are violated by Donald Trump's inauguration.

Stop Donald Trump's conflicts of interest

President-elect Donald Trump owns more than 500 businesses through his Trump Organization. So long as he or his family continues to own them, his personal financial interests will conflict with the nation's. He must immediately sell all his assets and move his money into a blind trust.

Tell U.S. Mayors: Protect Undocumented Immigrants - Declare Your City a Sanctuary of Safety! #HereToStay

Trump has said he will deport millions, and anti-immigrant harassment is already out of control. It is time to declare America’s cities as sanctuaries of safety and not allow local police to do the work of immigration agents. If your city is not already, declare it a sanctuary city. And if it is, commit to do everything in your power to maintain your sanctuary status and protect your undocumented residents from a Trump administration.

Launch a federal investigation into Donald Trump's conflicts of interest

President-elect Donald Trump is refusing to adequately address his unprecedented conflicts of interest and put his assets into a blind trust. House Oversight Chair Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) was ready for "years" of investigations into a potential Clinton administration. Now, he must turn that same level of scrutiny on President-elect Trump and conduct a full investigation into his financial holdings, root out any potential conflicts of interest, and hold him accountable. Tell the chair of the House Oversight Committee to hold investigations unless President-elect Trump puts his assets into a blind trust.

Abolish the Electoral College

Amend the constitution to abolish the Electoral College. Hold presidential elections based on popular vote. One person one vote to determine the one leader who is supposed to answer to all the people of the country.

Stop Steve Bannon

Members of Congress must stop Donald Trump's appointment of Steve Bannon as a White House chief strategist and senior counsel. There is no place for a white supremacist, anti-Semitic misogynist in the White House.

Tell Donald Trump Myron Ebell is Unacceptable for the EPA

Dear President-Elect Trump, Climate change is affecting our lives much sooner than we expected, from public health risks to extreme weather and even our national security. Your decision to tap climate-denier Myron Ebell to lead the EPA transition – a man who rejects science and laughs in the face of this serious threat to Americans nationwide – is dangerous and irresponsible. You promised to be a president for the people and it’s time to make good on that promise. I urge you not to nominate to Myron Ebell to be EPA Administrator and remove him as the leader of the...

Tell President-elect Trump: Drop Steve Mnuchin

Throughout your campaign for president, you promised to "drain the swamp" of Washington and Wall Street insiders — which is why your appointment of Steve Mnuchin comes as a surprise to working families. Americans don't want the same Wall Street bankers rigging the system. I urge you to drop your appointment of Mnuchin as Treasury Secretary immediately.

Take Arctic and Atlantic drilling off the table for good

Dear President Obama, Thank you for protecting the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans from the risks of offshore drilling for the next five years! This is a big win for our oceans. Unfortunately, Big Oil and Donald Trump will almost certainly keep up their attacks until they gain access to the Arctic and Atlantic oceans for drilling -- you have the opportunity to stop them now using your authority to permanently protect our oceans. No president has done more to address climate change and you've protected more lands and water than any president in history. Now please seize this opportunity to...

Stop the Appointment of Tom Price!

Tom Price's appointment as Secretary of Health and Human Services needs to be stopped. He brings with him the intent and means to push his agenda to do away with the Affordable Care Act and to privatize/minimize Medicaid and Medicare. He will work diligently with the Republican dominated house to rip from the hardest working and poorest Americans affordable health care.

Demand President-Elect Trump Include Climate Action in His Presidency

Dear President-elect Trump, Deny it or don’t, climate change is here, it’s real, and it’s already threatening the basic fabric of American life: our health, our economy, our national security, our public lands and parks, and our future. The overwhelming majority of Americans believe in climate change and support a transition to clean, renewable energy. I urge you to include climate action as a major part of your administration during the next four years and build on the progress our nation has made because of President Obama. The very future of our planet depends on it.

Sarah Palin must not be our next Secretary of Veterans Affairs

Veterans in America face severe challenges every day, and Sarah Palin is profoundly unqualified to provide the help, guidance and advocacy necessary to take care of them. Stand with us and say "NO" to the appointment of Sarah Palin as VA Secretary. The position is far too important to put in the hands of someone as unqualified as her.

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.
