Hot Petitions

Terence Crutcher died for being Black. Indict Officer Betty Shelby.

Indict Officer Betty Shelby for killing Terence Crutcher, an unarmed father of four, who posed no threat to her. The people of Tulsa are counting on you to do the right thing and hold Tulsa police accountable. You must indict and fully investigate Officer Shelby for her role in the killing. Police are not above the law, and when someone kills someone, today's law states that they should be arrested—not at home on paid administrative leave.

No Giant Bonuses for Scamming Wells Fargo Customers

Wells Fargo created more than 2 million fake deposit and credit-card accounts, and then charged unknowing customers for them. Yet, the Wells Fargo executive who oversaw this misconduct isn’t being fired, they’re retiring--and walking away with almost $125 million in total compensation.

Stop the violence against the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe

By turning their dogs loose on protestors, the security guards hired by Dakota Access, LLC acted in a reckless and inhumane manner. The guards had no uniforms, drove vehicles with out-of-state plates, and appeared to have little or no training. It's unclear whether or not they're even licensed to operate in the state. The North Dakota Private Investigation and Security Board must investigate the actions of the private security guards hired by Dakota Access and ensure they are properly trained and licensed to operate in North Dakota.

Tell President Obama: Pardon Edward Snowden!

Petition to President Obama: "I urge you to use your presidential authority to pardon Edward Snowden, an American whistleblower who acted on the conviction that the public had a right and need to know about a global mass surveillance system that exceeded the limits of the Constitution."

Protect The Delivery of Mail In The USA

The US Postal Service is guaranteed in the Constitution of the United States in Article 1, Clause 8, Section 7. We challenge The President of the United States of America and the full body of Congress to protect and enhance the delivery of the mail. 1. We support six-day delivery of mail and demand it continues. 2. We support and demand mail be delivered in hours of daylight whenever possible. 3. We support hiring more city and rural carriers so all routes can be covered by a regular mail-person or their relief carrier on a daily basis. With reasonable accommodations...

TAKE ACTION: Restore wild salmon - remove the lower Snake River dams!

It's past time to remove the four outdated, salmon-killing dams on the lower Snake River. This is an alternative you must consider fully and fairly in the court-ordered environmental impact statement you are preparing for managing the Columbia and Snake River dams. You must base your analysis of this alternative on the best available science about salmon and other species that depend on them, including endangered killer whales. The analysis must also fully account for the market and non-market economic costs and benefits of dam removal, including the benefits of a restored river and the money tax- and rate-payers will...


I am writing today to urge you to protect the Grand Canyon as the Greater Grand Canyon Heritage National Monument. The proposed monument is a magnificent landscape held dear by Native American tribes, Arizonans, and all Americans. In 2012, your administration took the historic step to withdraw much of this region from uranium mining for 20 years. I support that action, and now I am urging you to take the next step.

Justice for Lennon Lacy

Promote social justice by increasing awareness of inequality and racism in North Carolina. Lennon Lacy was a victim of racism and deserves to have justice.

Re-designate Nepal for the Temporary Protected Status (TPS)

With Nepal designated for TPS last year, thousands of Nepali nationals in the U.S. have been able to breathe a sigh of relief and support their families back home. We urge you to re-designate Nepal for TPS so that the Nepali community in the U.S. can continue support the rebuilding efforts in Nepal.

President Obama: Protect the Grand Canyon from toxic mining

I urge you to protect the Grand Canyon from nearby uranium mining by designating the Greater Grand Canyon Heritage National Monument. Doing so will permanently protect this sacred place for generations to come and set a precedent for protecting other special places across the country from reckless threats.

Gov. Brown: Protect in-person visitation in jails

We urge you to sign Senate Bill 1157 (Mitchell)- Strengthening Family Connections: In-Person Visitation. This bill ensures that people in jail and their families will have access to in-person visitation. Research has shown that in-person visits strengthen family connections and reduce recidivism, increase the chances of securing employment post-release, and facilitate successful reentry.

Sen. Barrasso: Hold Indian Affairs hearing NOW on Dakota Access Pipeline

The International Indigenous Youth Council and Oceti Sakowin Youth “Demands that the Senate committee on Indian Affairs immediately commence hearings to investigate pipeline construction in relation to the National Historic Act of 1966 and the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act of November 16, 1990.” Clearly, the fact that the Department of Justice, the Department of Interior, and the Army Corps of Engineers, and the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia have temporarily halted construction on federal land demonstrates the need for legitimate oversight and environmental and cultural review. It is the responsibility of the Senate committee...

Stop the Monsanto-Bayer merger

Bayer and Monsanto have agreed to merge in a $66 billion deal. This would create the world's largest seed and pesticide maker, which will reduce competition, raise prices for consumers and farmers, and result in an unacceptable degree of control over the agricultural industry. With the risks so clear, I expect your agency to reject any attempt by these two corporations to merge.

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.

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.
