Hot Petitions

Tell Secretary Nielsen: Stop separating families!

Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, abandon the cruel, costly, and unjustified practice of separating families seeking protection at our borders, including those who are fleeing persecution in their home countries. Children belong with their parents in safe communities, not locked up in detention centers.

Remove Palm Oil from Trader Joe's products

Trader Joe's uses Palm Oil in some of their products. The email I got from them said more people needed to complain about it before they will do anything about them. Lets show them we care about the destruction of forests so Palm Oil trees can be grown.

Remove NRA influence from the Boy Scouts of America

For many years, the Boy Scouts Of America have relied on NRA training modules to train Scouts in shooting sports. While they don't endorse the NRA explicitly, use of NRA branded programs with youth results in a passive endorsement of the NRA brand. When these programs were instituted the NRA was a gun-safety organization rather than a lobbying arm for the firearms industry as it has become. I would like the BSA to disassociate from NRA-endorsed programs for firearm safety program that are not developed by this organization which actively works to halt all reasonable gun control legislation.

Stop the Trump administration from industrializing our Gulf with floating factory farms!

Dear Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council, I was alarmed to hear that the Council is preparing to approve a new marine finfish aquaculture project in the Gulf of Mexico, just off Florida’s coast. I am writing to the Council to voice my opposition to this facility in waters near my home, and to marine finfish aquaculture everywhere. These underwater feedlots are bad news all around. They are horrible for the environment and public health. They can cause massive, catastrophic fish spills –- like the release of more than 263,000 Atlantic salmon from a floating feedlot in Washington State –-...

Hey Advertisers! - Boycott Fox News

As Fox News is a de facto policy maker and supporter of Trump, until Fox News STOPS supporting the separation of parents and children at the border - and the sanctioned abduction of kids due to the lack of procedures for reunification - ALL ADVERTISERS OF FOX NEWS SHOULD BE PETITIONED TO PULL THEIR ADVERTISING FROM FOX. Top 10 advertisers to contact: Nutrisystem; Otezla; Jenny Craig; Sleep Number; Indeed; South Beach Diet; Smile Direct Club; Liberty Mutual; GEICO; and Inogen. Top 10 Hannity advertisers: Nutrisystem; Otezla; Clear Choice; Coventry Direct; Sandals Resorts; Lifelock; Society of HRM; Inogen; Atlantis Paradise Island;...

Tell Greyhound to Stop Aiding Trump's Deportation Machine!

Allowing U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents to board your buses and conduct warrantless searches is not only immoral, but a violation of your passengers constitutional rights. Data has shown that CBP targets Black and Latinx passengers for arrest and detention and has in many cases, detained citizens and legal residents. 10 state chapters of the American Civil Liberties Union have reached out to you and informed you of your legal rights to refuse boarding to CBP agents, and you have refused to invoke those rights. We are demanding that, on behalf of your passengers, you adopt policies to deny...

T-Mobile Drop Corey Lewandowski

Corey Lewandowski refused to apologize Wednesday after he dismissed the story of a 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome who was reportedly separated from her mother after crossing the border illegally. While appearing on Fox News, former senior Democratic National Committee adviser Zac Petkanas shared an anecdote about "a 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome" who had been "taken from her mother and put in a cage." "Womp womp," the former Trump campaign manager responded.

All student debt repayment 100% tax deductable

Student Debt is the largest kind of consumer debt in our country. Since Free college is not acceptable to GOP members, let's make student debt repayment 100% tax deductable. Just when college graduates are starting careers, opening businesses or getting married, buying homes and starting families, getting back dollars sent towards paying off student debt every spring would be a boost to the economy and would incentivize more High School Grads to go on to college. Win-win for lending intitutions as well.

Oppose the USDA's pro-GMO propaganda

I have read about the proposed National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard (Docket No. AMS-TM-17-0050), and I strongly urge your agency to implement the following improvements. First, there must be NO exemption for highly refined products. Doing so would directly undermine this standard by creating a massive loophole for the majority of products containing genetically engineered ingredients. Second, the term "bioengineered" is not well-established and recognized by consumers. Please use "genetically engineered," "GE," or "GMO" instead to reduce unnecessary consumer confusion. Third, the sample logos are inappropriate and suggest a USDA preference for genetically engineered products over organic and other food....

VICTORY: New York Times Works to Inform Readers on Budget

The New York Times' tendency to report on budget numbers without contextualizing them was a problem - especially in light of the recent federal budget crisis. MoveOn member (and former staffer) Daniel Mintz and Robert Naiman of Just Foreign Policy started MoveOn Petitions to Times Public Editor Margaret Sullivan, asking her to institute a policy of always reporting budget numbers with percentages or comparisons.

VICTORY: Governor Corbett Releases Education Dollars To Philadelphia Schools

In October 2013, a student at one Philadelphia school suffered from an asthma attack that led to her death. If there had been a school nurse on campus that day, she might still be alive. This tragedy motivated Philadelphia parent Jesse Bacon to start a MoveOn Petition to Governor Tom Corbett, asking him to stop withholding $45 million of funding from Philadelphia schools.

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.
