Hot Petitions

Limit Tax Money Spent on Trumps

Legislation must be passed to limit the amount of our taxpayer money spent on the Trump family's golf trips, vacations, and business trips—and on future presidents' expenses. Pass the "No Taxpayer Revenue Used to Monetize the Presidency" (No TRUMP) Act.

Shut down and investigate Trump

Congress must pause all Trump-related legislation and appointments—starting with a halt to Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch's confirmation process—until the American people learn the full truth about Trump and Russia.

Emergency! Don't let Donald Trump cut PBS Kids

Congress: Please block Donald Trump's plan to slash funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, endangering PBS Kids, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, Dinosaur Train, Thomas and Friends, and other essential public programming for children.

Remove Ivanka from the White House

No one elected Ivanka Trump. She has no official position in the White House and yet plays a larger role in White House meetings than most appointed Cabinet Secretaries including meeting with foreign leaders in the the East Room.

TAXPAYER Revolt against Trump Golf Trips!

It is unjust to cut PBS, NEA, Meals on Wheels, heat assistance, etc., while the taxpayers pay 3.3 MILLION (16.5 MILLION so far) for Trump to play golf in FL. We want a Bill that sets a cap on government spending for Presidential vacations and non-essential trips, based on past Presidential outlays. Everything over that cap will be the responsibility of the President.

Don't Cut Meals On Wheels

Meals on Wheels provides nutritious meals for senior citizens who would otherwise go hungry. It reaches over 2 million people, many of whom are living at or near poverty level. Do not cut federal funding for this program.

Reject Trump's Cruel, Immoral and Un-American Budget

We, the undersigned, strongly urge you to reject President Trump’s proposed federal budget for 2018. Trump’s budget would mean deep cuts to the agencies that protect our health and safety, our workplaces and wallets, and our environment and economy. It would decimate critical public services and protections while perpetuating tens of billions in corporate welfare and subsidies.

Stop the Largest Tax Giveaway in American History

Donald Trump's proposed tax plan will cost $6 trillion, money that is desperately needed to rebuild our economy by investing in infrastructure, green-jobs, education, medical research and so much more. Instead of huge tax giveaways to Trump's billionaire friends, we demand that you create a tax system that works for all Americans.

Restore the Ban On Lead in Wildlife Refuges

I am extremely disappointed that you repealed the phaseout of lead ammunition and fishing tackle on wildlife refuges. Please reverse course and protect our wildlife, water, soil, and health from toxic lead on public lands.

Nissan finances racist Breitbart propaganda

As Brietbart News has emerged from the sewer of hatred to become the home of White Nationalism, many national companies have taken steps to pull their advertising dollars. Not so with Nissan. Even worse, Nissan has chosen to intimidate Mississippi workers (the majority of whom are Black) against voting for a union, even though the company is union everywhere else in the world. Nissan needs to decide what side of history they will stand on. And as a first step, stop advertising with Breitbart.

Do NOT Cut EPA Funding!

Trump wants to slash funding for the Environmental Protection Agency and put even more American families in harm’s way for the sake of corporate profits. A vote to cut the EPA’s funding is a vote for more lead poisoning crises like we saw in Flint, Michigan. It’s a vote for more cancer-causing pesticides contaminating our food and water. And it’s a vote to make people sick. Do NOT slash funding for the EPA!

Demand an Independent Investigation into the Death of Darren Rainey, a Mentally Ill Inmate at Dade Correctional Institution

We the people demand an independent investigation into the death of Darren Rainey, a mentally ill inmate at Dade Correctional Institution. The Miami-Dade Medical Examiner's autopsy report concluded that Rainey died from complications of schizophrenia, heart disease and confinement in the shower. This autopsy—completed three years after Rainey's death—does not fault the people who put Rainey in the hot shower and kept him there for hours. This is an illogical and unacceptable conclusion.

VICTORY: Governor Corbett Releases Education Dollars To 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.
