"Ferguson police just executed my unarmed son!"

I write demanding full accountability for the police killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown. On August 9th, 2014 a Ferguson police officer racially profiled and fatally shot Michael as the teen stood in the street with his hands in the air. Police subsequently failed to properly notify the family of Michael's death and callously left the young man lying deceased in the street for hours. This type of brutal and racially-motivated police violence has no place in law enforcement. Every day, Black residents of Ferguson and Missouri face possible abuse and death at the hands of an officer due to discriminatory...

Market Basket Customer Loyalty

WE WILL NOT SHOP AT A MARKET BASKET SOLD TO A CHAIN OR SOME OTHER FACELESS CORPORATE ENTITY, but rather, we will shop at one where Arthur T. Demoulas is allowed to run the company as he has before. Whatever, the past history between Arthur S. and Arthur T. is of the past. The best way forward for all concerned is to allow Arthur T. to buy the company and return it to the wonderful Market Basket experience; great service, good prices, fresh food, fast checkouts, wonderful (and we understand) well-paid employees. If not, we will have to find somewhere...

Walmart Won't Get my Back-to-School Dollars

Through their family foundation, the Walton family who owns Walmart has spent more than $1 billion to support the privatization of our public schools. They've funded an aggressive corporate education agenda that has included mass school closures and diverted our public education tax dollars to for-profit voucher and charter schools. As a teacher, I can't support their company. Until the Walton family stops funding attacks on our public schools, I will be spending my back-to-school dollars elsewhere and encourage you to do the same!

Protect Sharks and Ensure Your Tuna Is Legal and Sustainable

Millions of sharks are killed by tuna vessels every year—as bycatch or from illegal shark finning practices.
Major companies like Bumble Bee have a responsibility to ensure that their products do not come with the hidden cost of millions of dead sharks.
We both know that policies banning shark finning, including the guidelines of the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF), are not enough. Unless your company can publicly prove that all aspects of your supply chain, including the independent vessels that you buy fish from are not finning sharks, those guidelines become meaningless.
I am requesting that...

Coca-Cola: Stop Funding Anti-Labeling Campaigns

I was disappointed to learn that Coca-Cola contributed more than $3.2 million to defeat the state initiatives to label genetically engineered foods (or GMOs) in California and Washington. Please stop trying to keep us in the dark about GE foods, and issue a public statement that Coca-Cola will no longer contribute money to anti-labeling efforts.

Make All Missouri Law Enforcement Officers Wear Cameras

Due to the increased abuse of power by law enforcement, use of SWAT teams or SWAT tactics, as well as continued militarization of local law enforcement, We, the Citizens of Missouri, are petitioning and demanding our legislatures implement the use of cameras on all law enforcement officers including, but not limited to: local police, correctional officers, sheriffs, county deputies, and security guards. We feel that this greater accountability will foster more trust in law enforcement and the courts by the citizens of our state. Studies have shown a reduction in police use of force and formal complaints when officers are...

Iowa: Tell the EPA to ban bee-killing pesticides

Dear Administrator McCarthy, Honey bees, native bees and other pollinators are responsible for one out of every three bites of food we eat. Many fruits and vegetables, including apples, blueberries, strawberries, carrots and broccoli, as well as almonds and coffee, rely on bees. These beneficial insects are critical in maintaining our diverse food supply. U.S. beekeepers have been consistently losing 40-100 percent of their hives. Widespread use of a new class of toxic pesticides, neonicotinoids, is a significant contributing factor. In addition to killing bees outright, research has shown that even low levels of these dangerous pesticides impair bees' ability...

Help Save Lake Erie

The most valuable natural resource we will have this century is potable water. We must do everything we can to preserve and protect this national resource. Protecting our fresh water from pollution should be one of our nation's sacred duties to the future.

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.
