Hot Petitions

Tell Macy's: Dump Donald Trump

Macy's: Donald Trump does not reflect "the magic of Macy's." We urge you to sever ties with him. Macy's says it has a strong obligation to be "socially responsible" and that "actions speak louder than words." Indeed. It's time to act.

Dear IRS: No tax breaks for hate groups.

Your tax dollars are at work, subsidizing the hate group that inspired the alleged perpetrator of the Charleston Massacre. This is wrong. Tell the IRS to revoke the tax exempt status of hate groups, beginning with the CCC.

Let’s Have Some Backbone at the SEC

The Securities and Exchange Commission has a crucial role to play in restraining Wall Street recklessness and standing up for investors and the integrity of the financial markets. Unfortunately, it has not been doing its job very well. One big reason: a habit of nominating “revolving door” corporate and Wall Street insiders to serve as SEC Commissioners. With two vacancies coming up, we urge you to find nominees who will stand up for Main Street instead of Wall Street. Too many past SEC commissioners have proved to be overly protective of the short-term interests of the financial industry. We need...

Stop Domestic Terrorism Targeting Predominately Black Churches

In the two weeks since the horrific murder of nine parishioners at Mother Emanuel AME in Charleston, fires have engulfed at least seven black churches in the south. Authorities have determined that at least three of the fires resulted from arson, but the government appears to be doing stunningly little to stop the string of fires. Will you help demand that state and federal authorities immediately act to stop the destruction of black churches?

Pass the Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2015

Congress must protect voters now by passing The Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2015. The bill includes modern, common sense solutions to prevent racial discrimination in voting. Congress should give this bill the consideration it deserves and work together to restore the Voting Rights Act. Every day that Congress fails to act is a threat to voting rights in America

SEC Should Demand Full Disclosure of Walmart's Offshore Subsidiaries in Tax Havens

American taxpayers deserve a greater degree of transparency and demand full disclosure of Walmart's offshore subsidiaries and how much the company is avoiding in taxes. We are calling on the SEC to determine if Walmart is skirting the law when it comes to reporting its use of tax havens and using these tax havens to avoid paying taxes. Average Americans and small businesses have to make up the difference when Walmart doesn’t pay its fair share.

Tell Congress and POTUS: We need a federal ban on Open Carry Laws!

An average of 31 Americans die every single day from gun violence. One out of every three Americans says they have witnessed at least one shooting in their lives. At a time when mass shootings are drastically rising, many states have decided that the best solution to this problem is to allow citizens to openly carry deadly weapons into parks, college campuses, and other places where innocent people are simply trying to live their lives peacefully. Let's put an end to these senseless laws!

Stop Ethnic Cleansing of Haitians in The Dominican Republic

As concerned citizens, we call upon Dominican authorities to take all necessary steps to stop ethnic cleansing of Haitians and Dominicans of Haitian descent and protect the rights of Dominicans of Haitian descent, whose citizenship has recently been stripped by the country's constitutional court. We want the Dominican government to reverse its racist and discriminatory ruling and to ensure that Dominicans of Haitian descent have access to government-issued identity documents that guarantee their access to education and health services and their universal human rights.

Fox News As A Hate Group

Fox News has proved again and again it is promoting hate and terror among the American People! How else could Steve Doocy have opined on Fox News that it was “extraordinary” that the Charleston church shooting was called a hate crime? How can Fox wonder if it had a racial element to it when Roof is on record as saying during the shooting that he wanted to kill black people because they are “taking over”? This combination of warped mentality, group think and profiting off tragedy is the hallmark of Fox, But the poison of its commentators is effective because...

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.
