Investigate Trump’s Personal Pentagon Slush Fund!

The company run by a major Republican party donor, Tommy Fisher of Fisher Sand and Gravel, was recently awarded a $400 million contract to build a span of new ‘border wall’ in Arizona, even though officials said its bid didn’t meet standards. President Trump personally lobbied on Fisher's behalf, in — yet again — an abuse of the president’s office for a calculated partisan purpose. We urge you to investigate.

Tell ICE to #FreeKelly!

We demand Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) release Kelly, a young transgender asylum seeker who has been suffering in immigration jail for more than two years and spent four months in solitary confinement because of her gender identity!

Shut down the Trump administration's concentration camps

No matter the year, who is President, or what we call these places, we must end the practice of putting human beings in concentration camps. Thousands of people—including children—are suffering from illnesses and disease, living off slimy and rotting deli meat, and being separated from their families with no promise of reunification or future assistance. Politicians want to hide the severity of this debasement, dehumanization, and death behind media-friendly talking points but we must call out this exploitation of human beings for what it is. ProPublica reported on a private Facebook group for border agents where agents are discussing their...

Tell Congress: Investigate and Cut Ties to McKinsey

McKinsey consultants recommended Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) impose cruel measures against immigrant families—and were paid millions with our taxpayer dollars. We must stop funding anti-immigrant attacks that hurt all our communities. #DefundHate Congress, you must investigate this work and cut ties with McKinsey.

Investigate Rep. Devin Nunes

One of Rudy Giuliani’s close associates has accused Rep. Devin Nunes, a congressional ally of President Trump, of using taxpayer dollars to do the president’s bidding -- and meeting with an ex-Ukrainian official to dig up dirt on Vice President Joe Biden. Congress must thoroughly investigate these serious allegations.

EPA Allows Wildlife-killing Cyanide Bombs

The Trump administration just said it was OK to use cyanide bombs to kill wildlife. Known as M-44s, these small metal cylinders are full of cyanide and covered in a sweet scent to attract wildlife. With a little tug, a deadly dose of poison shoots out, sending the victim into a slow, agonizing death. And the EPA just gave the green light to keep M-44s out in the wild to inhumanely and indiscriminately kill thousands of animals.

Bring my father home & keep our family together

Stop the deportation of Tyrone Abraham, advocate for gun violence prevention, substance abuse treatment, and those suffering from HIV/AIDS, by granting him a pardon today. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has issued pardons to individuals in recognition of their rehabilitative efforts to remove the barriers that their criminal records impose on their immigration status. We ask Gov. Cuomo to again demonstrate his belief in the power of redemption, mercy, and transformation by reuniting a father, educator, and community advocate with his family. With time against him, a grant of pardon from Gov. Cuomo is the only chance Tyrone and his...

Senate vote on Trump guilt needs a secret ballot

Senators function as a jury in an impeachment trial, and in most trials a juror's individual vote is secret. This allows for a more deliberative process free from outside pressure. Senate Republicans know that Trump deserves to be removed from office, but they are absolutely terrified of crossing GOP primary voters. A few sources have said that anywhere from 30 to 35 Republicans would vote to convict Trump by secret ballot.

Facebook & YouTube: Ban all political ads

Political ads on Facebook and YouTube have an unhealthy and anti-democratic effect on our political discourse. Twitter has decided to ban political ads—Facebook and Google, which owns YouTube, should do the same.

Protect Apache holy site from Resolution Copper

We demand Congress use their powers to intervene and stop the destruction of Oak Flat. We demand Congress return the full rights and religious protections to the Apache of Oak Flat in recognition of their religious freedom.

Protect gray wolves from killings by Wildlife Services

Wildlife Services is a standalone federal extermination program run by the U.S. Department of Agriculture that kills roughly 4 million animals per year, including wolves, grizzly bears, otters, foxes, coyotes, and birds. Just weeks after our landmark courtroom victory against Wildlife Services in Washington state, we have filed another lawsuit challenging its authority to kill any of the 110 gray wolves remaining in Oregon. With Oregon's wolf population just beginning to recover, we cannot allow an out-of-control federal agency to play any role in managing these threatened animals. Please join us in condemning the shameful killings of Wildlife Services and...

Speaker Turzai: A Climate Denier Has No Place Chairing the Environment Committee

We, the undersigned, call on you to remove Representative Daryl Metcalfe from his seat as chair of the Environmental Resources and Energy Committee and from any seat on that committee. We have little time left to address the climate crisis. Representative Metcalfe’s record of unabashed climate denial, obstructionism, and unprofessional behavior makes him a wholly inappropriate person to chair or even serve on the committee that should be leading the efforts in the House to address the most important issue of our time.

Don't Punish Chronic Pain Patients

We are trying to keep our people who are suffering from chronic intractable pain from being lumped in with the addicts. We are not addicts; we are people who have cancer, Crohn's, failed back surgeries, accidents, Adhesive Arachnoiditis, and so many more diseases, injuries, or illnesses that require us to take pain medication to survive.

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.
