Hot Petitions

Tell Squarespace to dump Steve King

Steve King is one of the most racist members of Congress. As he recently said, "White nationalist, white supremacist...when did that language become offensive?" It’s not enough to condemn King anymore; let’s take action. Tell Squarespace to dump King’s website!

Request Trump's Tax Returns Now

The American people deserve to know who their president is working for. Since Democrats won promising to hold Donald Trump accountable, Rep. Richard Neal should make good on those promises by requesting the president’s tax returns without delay.

End the War on Wolves!

Gray wolves are finally beginning to recover in the continental U.S. after humans trapped, shot, and poisoned them to the brink of extinction. But wolves still have a long way to go before they can be considered “recovered,” and they remain functionally extinct in the vast majority of places where they used to live. Now is not the time to remove Endangered Species Act protections from these imperiled animals. Removing protections from gray wolves would effectively declare “open season” on wolves as they return to unoccupied parts of their range. In Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming, where wolves have already lost...

End military aid to Saudi Arabia

Due to Saudi Arabia's role in the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and its ongoing attacks that have created a massive humanitarian crisis in Yemen, the U.S. must end support of the conflict and all military aid and arms sales to the regime.

This cop killed a child. He doesn't deserve a badge.

Stop defending the officer who killed Tamir Rice and trying to get him back on the police force. Putting Timothy Loehmann back on the streets with a badge and gun would threaten public safety, and send the dangerous message that police officers are above accountability for their actions.

Tell the Senate: Reject David Bernhardt for Interior Secretary!

Dear Senator, David Bernhardt is a former, highly paid industry lobbyist who is an inappropriate choice for Secretary of the Interior. His former clients received favorable decisions after he became Deputy Secretary, and he is already the subject of litigation from groups requesting his ethics documentation under the Freedom of Information Act. Trump’s last Interior Secretary was forced to resign amid growing scandal. We don’t need a second Interior Secretary who is unfit to lead. Americans deserve a secretary who will put our health and safety first, not the profits of his former clients. Sincerely,

Protect the Mueller investigation

With the latest firing of the Attorney General it's imperative that Congress do everything in its power to ensure that Mueller cannot be fired or removed and that the investigation will continue regardless of Trump's attempts to stop it.

Reject Trump's Border Wall Land Grab

We reject Trump's border wall land grab. Eminent domain should not be used for political stunts. The Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security must refuse to take property from citizens for political purposes.

No war with Venezuela!

We've been here before. After one lie that led to hundreds of thousands of people dead in Iraq, we don't need another attempt at military intervention and regime change. No war with Venezuela!

Statement Supporting LGBTQ Inclusion in the United Methodist Church (American University)

As students, staff, faculty, alumni, and others connected to the American University community, a United Methodist-related institution, we are appealing to the 2019 General Conference of the United Methodist Church. The church has long claimed to stand for the values that all persons are of sacred worth and equal standing, which we wholeheartedly embrace. Following the lead of the National Association of Schools and Colleges of the United Methodist Church (NASCUMC) we also strongly affirm access and inclusion of all students, faculty, and staff on our campus regardless of their race, ethnicity, creed, national origin, gender, gender identity/expression, or sexual...

Save Chaco Canyon from Fracking

Chaco Canyon is a truly perishable natural resource, and one of the finest examples of the architecture and prehistory of Native Americans. It will be destroyed if fracking is allowed to be done there.

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.
