Hot Petitions

Tax Ben & Jerry

If Senate and House Republicans have their way, they will eliminate the estate tax, which affects only the wealthiest 0.2% of taxpayers. Repealing the estate tax would hurt our economy and be fundamentally unfair. Senate Democrats: Stand with us—and stay united against the repeal.

Cuts in State Support for Wisconsin Public Schools

Governor Scott Walker's budget would cut $98 million in support for public schools between July 2015 and June 2017. This is on top of the drastic cuts to education that have already happened—Wisconsin currently spends $1,014 less on each student in 2015 than it did in 2008. Do not cut more from public education in this new budget. Please do not shortchange our children's futures.

Fight climate change--stop the TPP

Don't fast-track the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a corporate trade deal that will fuel the dramatic increase in carbon emissions and sabotage serious efforts to combat climate change, while hurting workers with a race-to-the-bottom approach to labor standards.

STOP the Forest Service from Logging Threatened Lynx Habitat!

Canada lynx are medium-sized wild cats that once ranged from Alaska to New Mexico. They have been decimated in the continental U.S. by trapping and logging and are now listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. Yet the Forest Service is authorizing a 12,000-acre logging project in Colorado, including 2,370 acres of clear-cutting in the San Isabel National Forest. Lynx are known to live across 80 percent of the logging area. Denning habitat and passageways critical to maintaining the territory size necessary for the species’ survival will be destroyed. No public comment period will be provided when exact logging...

Tell ICE: Release Melida and her 4-year-old daughter from more than 8 months of detention

We support the release of Melida and her 4-year-old daughter Estrella from family detention in Karnes City, Texas. Melida has a 10-year-old U.S. citizen daughter, a sister with a green card, and other U.S. citizen family and friends all waiting for her in New York and willing to care for her while her case proceeds. She has already endured more than 8 months of detention, suffering constantly while her daughter has been chronically ill and required hospitalization. She's terrified of returning to Guatemala, where the family of the gang member who was convicted of murdering her sister-in-law wants retribution. ICE...

The U.S. needs to track police killings nationally

Michael Brown. Eric Garner. Walter Scott. Freddie Gray. How many people of color are killed by police? Even as communities suffer great losses, we don't know the extent of the toll police violence is taking on communities of color because our federal law enforcement agencies refuse to track police killings. It's time for the Bureau of Justice Statistics to publish official nationwide statistics of police killings and the race of the victims.

Support sustainability in the Dietary Guidelines!

I am writing to express my support for the sustainability and health recommendations of the 2015 Scientific Report of the Dietary Guidelines Committee calling for consumption of less red and processed meat and fewer animal products overall. The science is clear that a more plant-centered, less resource-intensive diet is better for our health and the environment.

Save American Wild Horses, an Endangered Species

The Bureau OF Land Management(BLM) is rounding up thousands of wild horses from Public Land, destined to be penned or sent to slaughter. The BLM is not functioning as stated in The Wild Free-Roaming Horses And Burros Act Of 1971(Public Law 92-195). Reduce private livestock grazing on public land managed by BLM in favor of wild horses.

Stop the Koch Brothers Attack on Solar Energy

Solar is a virtually limitless, pollution-free energy source for the United States. We oppose recent efforts by you, the Koch Brothers, as well as your related organizations and special interest allies, that seek to slow down or halt the advancement of solar energy.

Get Big Money Out of Oregon Politics

We, the people, should have the right to limit big money in politics, including campaign contributions. To enable that right and begin the process of repairing our democracy, please refer SJR 5 to the ballot.

Protect Our Public Lands from Fracking

Please support the bill to ban fracking on federal public lands (H.R. 1902), recently re-introduced in the House by Rep. Mark Pocan as the Protect Our Public Lands Act of 2015. America's vast and cherished public lands are rightfully known as national treasures. But these iconic lands are at risk from fracking for oil and gas, and there is no amount of regulation that can make fracking safe. Public lands and nearby communities are paying the price in drilling accidents, leaks and spills that can pollute air and contaminate drinking water. 
I urge you to take strong action to safeguard...

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.
