Hot Petitions

Tell the Senate: Reject Extremist Tom Price

Block Tom Price's nomination for secretary of health and human services. His brazen apparent ethics violations and support for extremist policies—from privatizing Medicare to gutting Medicaid to defunding Planned Parenthood and repealing the Affordable Care Act—would hurt millions of Americans.

Tell the White House Press Corps: Stand up to Trump's blacklist

If Trump blacklists or bans one of you, the rest of you need to stand up. Instead of ignoring Trump's bad behavior and going about your business, close ranks and stand up for journalism. Don't keep talking about what Trump wants to talk about. Stand up and fight back. Amplify your colleague's inquiry or refuse to engage until he removes that person/outlet from the blacklist.

Tell the Senate to block Rex Tillerson nomination as secretary of state!

I am deeply concerned by Donald Trump's nomination of Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State. As your constituent, I am urging you to stand on the side of the American people in opposing this nomination and voting to block Tillerson's confirmation. As the CEO of Exxon, Tillerson has consistently put his business interests above the well-being of the American people, as his cozy relationship with Russia and Vladimir Putin reflect. He has gone so far as to publicly criticize sanctions on Russia, undermining U.S. international leadership to protect his own business dealings with Putin. Under Tillerson, Exxon worked...

Stop Jeff Sessions!

Members of Congress must reject the nomination of Jeff Sessions as attorney general. As a known racist with a long record of opposing civil rights and equality, it is unimaginable that he could be entrusted to serve as the nation’s top law enforcement official.

Families won't vacation in "guns everywhere" Florida

With the tragic gun violence at Ft. Lauderdale Airport, an important tourism hub, families more than ever need to feel safe and welcome when we go on vacation, especially when we are with our children. But the Florida State Legislature is even now considering a bill that would open up a long list of public places to firearms, including schools and...airports. The bill would furthermore seek to allow concealed weapons holders to open carry. Please stop the this bill from moving forward, because seeing guns everywhere would not help families feel safe and welcome.

Stop Trump's Corporate Coup

President-elect Donald Trump must sell his assets immediately and place them in a blind trust. He should also publicly release his tax returns so that the American people can determine for themselves whether his presidency poses conflicts of interest.

Action needed! Send your Comment to the Forest Service to Protect the Boundary Waters

I strongly support the proposed mineral withdrawal to protect the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness ("Boundary Waters"). The threats posed by sulfide-ore copper mining are unjustifiable in the watershed of such a sensitive and important area. The Boundary Waters is America's most popular and water-rich wilderness area. Its 1.1 million acres contain more than 1,000 pristine lakes and 1,200 miles of river and stream, offering unmatched fishing, hunting, and other public lands wilderness recreational opportunities for all Americans to enjoy. Priceless and irreplaceable, the Boundary Waters must not be put at risk of perpetual pollution from the most toxic industry...

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.
