TAKE ACTION: Get these hormone-disrupting chemicals out of our food!

I am deeply concerned that toxic chemicals called phthalates are allowed to be used as food additives. Exposure to this class of chemicals during pregnancy is linked to serious impairments to children's brains and to the reproductive systems of boys. Exposures during childhood are associated with developmental delays and serious learning disabilities. We must do a better job of protecting our children from chemicals. I urge the FDA to stop allowing toxic phthalates to be used as food additives. The brain development and reproductive capacity of a generation of children are on the line. Thank you for your consideration of...

Enterprise: Drive away from ALEC

Live up to your own values of sustainability by cutting all ties immediately with ALEC, an extreme right-wing lobbying group that denies climate change and blocks climate action.

President Obama and DHS: Stop paying for-profit companies to lock up immigrants.

We demand the Department of Homeland Security follow the DOJ’s lead and stop paying corporations to lock up immigrants. The DOJ’s decision to phase out private prisons reflects a growing consensus that mass incarceration is out of control and imprisoning people for profit is wrong. It's an important step forward – but it doesn't affect most federal private prison contracts, which are handed out by the Department of Homeland Security to lock up immigrants, often in horrific and abusive conditions. If you don't want to be known as leaders who helped prison companies profit from suffering and neglect, you need...

Department of Homeland Security: Stop Using Private Prisons Now!

The Department of Justice recently announced that it would phase out the use of 13 private prisons due to safety and security concerns. However, the Department of Homeland Security is the biggest client of private prison corporations, using their facilities to hold immigrants in unconstitutional and inhumane conditions. We demand that the Department of Homeland Security terminate its use of private prisons immediately!

Obama: Cancel the 8/24 fossil fuel auction in New Orleans

The August 24th fossil fuel auction in the New Orleans Superdome comes on the heels of one of the worst climate disasters since Superstorm Sandy--unprecedented "1,000 year" floods in Louisiana. It's unconscionable and unacceptable to let it move forward. The fossil fuel auction in the New Orleans Superdome on August 24 comes on the heels of one of the worst climate disasters since Superstorm Sandy–unprecedented "1,000-year" floods in Louisiana.

No new offshore oil leases in the Gulf of Mexico

The pending lease sale of nearly 24 million acres in the Gulf of Mexico for oil and gas drilling will put Gulf residents, the environment, and the fight to battle climate change at serious risk. Stop the sale of offshore oil leases in the Gulf of Mexico immediately

SWFL Clean Water Movement

Our once-pristine waters are being poisoned by Lake Okeechobee runoff. Even mainstream media Beaches closures, algae-infested rivers, businesses going under, and tourist dollars lost

Protect CA Coasts: Ban Offshore Fracking

I urge you to call on the Obama Administration to ban offshore fracking in California. Fracking is a dirty, dangerous practice that has absolutely no place in our ocean. Offshore fracking increases the risk of earthquakes and oil spills, and threatens our marine wildlife. To protect our coasts and communities in California, please take action to ban offshore fracking!

No more palm oil

Dear Consumercare, This morning it was brought to my attention that a major ingredient to Nutella, a favorite product of mine, is palm oil, and that large swaths of Tropical forest and brought down and burned to free up land for the production of palm oil. In the world of today that is one of the biggest environmental crimes occurring day in day out. Since I am now informed, I will no longer purchase your product until you have changed your ways and have made your product eco-friendly. I will also encourage anyone I know to quit you cold-turkey, and...

Stop the Dow-DuPont megamerger

This merger is clearly just a way for DuPont to line Wall Street pockets while hiding the money they owe for poisoning us with C-8. It is your duty to protect us from greedy corporations and ensure that our lives are valued as much as the lives of DuPont shareholders.

Stop the H.R.5714 - Postal Service Reform Act of 2016

The Postal Service Reform Act of 2016 is another hostile attack on America's mail delivery service. It puts major restrictions on door-to-door delivery on new construction nationwide. It forces the post office to move its employees into Medicare at age 65 after the USPS has endured years of pre-funding retiree benefits at a pace seen nowhere in the public or private section.

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.
