Hot Petitions

Yosemite National Park names should not be changed

Delaware North had a 20 year contract with Yosemite National Park as a food, beverage & lodging company to run restaurants and hotels in Park. Delaware North lost their contract and threatened to sue for $52 million dollars for Ahwahnee Hotel, Wawona Hotel, Curry Village and other historic names that belong to Park, claiming Delaware North has ownership; they do not. Wawona Hotel and Ahwahnee Hotel were built in the 1800’s and 1920’s. We must speak out for our park; it belongs to the public.

Urge the U.S. government to accept more Syrian refugees

There is a refugee crisis happening right now and the U.S. needs to show leadership and kindness by accepting these refugees from Syria and elsewhere. Germany is accepting 800,000 refugees while we are only accepting in the few thousands. We have the wealth to do it, so let's do it!

Withdraw Wendy Vitter's Nomination

At her confirmation hearing, district court nominee Wendy Vitter refused to say whether she believes the landmark Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court ruling was decided correctly. This is disqualifying, and her nomination must be withdrawn.

Tell Fox News to fire Sean Hannity

Fox News host Sean Hannity is deceitful. He should be fired from Fox News for deeply unethical behavior in hiding his professional relationship with Donald Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen. Such a conflict of interest should not be tolerated, yet Fox News says he has their 'full support.' Tell Fox that pushing propaganda and peddling conspiracy theories is not "news."

Deny merger of Sinclair & Tribune

If approved, the purchase of Tribune Media’s 42 stations would enable Sinclair to reach 72 percent of U.S. households -- significantly more than the nationwide audience cap of 39 percent as determined by Congress.

Paul Ryan: Pass the Dream Act Now!

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) is retiring. He’s made multiple promises to act on immigration reform and the Dream Act over the years, but carried out none of them. Tell Speaker Ryan: you still have time to take action! Do the right thing and pass the Dream Act!

Don't Give Trump a Blank Check for Endless War

The proposed new Corker-Kaine Authorization for the Use of Military Force is profoundly dangerous. This AUMF would give the president unlimited war-making authority and would violate the Constitution by abdicating Congress’ core responsibility over matters of war and peace. Please oppose this dangerous resolution.

No National Guard troops on the border

All U.S. governors must stand up to Trump and resist his latest attack on immigrant communities. We're counting on you, as governor of your state, to stop this attack in its tracks and reject Trump's racist agenda that will further hurt immigrant communities and tear families apart. Do not send National Guard troops to the southern border.

Don't let Trump rig the 2020 Census!

We should call the Trump Administration's addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 Census what it is: a politically-motivated attempt to racially skew the results. Tell Congress to pass S. 2580 to stop this -- and ensure a fair and accurate 2020 Census count.

Mandatory Congressional Town Halls

Instead of congressional leaders coming back to their districts to do fund raisers with wealthy donors and lobbyists, we demand they have quarterly town halls in each congressional district. They do work for us after all, why should we have to pay to hear them?

Betsy DeVos: Resign

Despite your narrow and controversial confirmation, you are completely unqualified to serve as Secretary of Education. We, the undersigned, demand your immediate resignation. In your confirmation hearings, you confirmed that you know nothing about public schools–as well as some of our most at-risk students, such as those with disabilities. It's time to step down, before you do any further damage to our neighborhood schools, and our children. Resign now.

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.
