Hot Petitions

Revoke Wall Street's License to Steal

We call on your financial institution to remove the forced arbitration requirements from your contracts with customers. Forced arbitration functions as a license to steal that makes it impossible for customers to hold you accountable in court if you break the law. Honor our rights and stop using forced arbitration.

Save the Newport Rescue Helicopter

Newport, Oregon is the is one of the highest catch ports in the US, and a huge recreational, merchant, research and NOAA port. The Coast Guard rescue helicopter is being relocated between 90 and 130 miles away. This move is the result of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2014 and will jeopardize the lives of our commercial and recreational fleet. This decision can not stand. Help keep our fisherpeople safe.

Woman's voice silenced by gun laws!

Don’t let gun laws stifle free speech. No state should allow its gun laws to violate the First Amendment. Public institutions of higher education should have the ability to protect college students and all those who want to engage in a full and open discussion on important issues, like violence against women.

Seriously, Jimmy John’s? Stop trying to make it impossible for your workers to find new jobs!

We call on Jimmy John’s to end their oppressive non-compete policy that prevents sandwich makers and cooks from getting jobs at any place that makes sandwiches even years after leaving the company. It’s time for Jimmy John’s to stop treating workers like property and get rid of this policy – not to mention pay a living wage.

Thank Governor Brown for listing top funders of propositions online!

Gov. Brown: Thank-you for signing SB 844 which allows voters to see online which "big spenders" are supporting and opposing California propositions. Please continue your strong leadership by working with the California Clean Money Campaign and people like myself to pass the California DISCLOSE Act in 2015 so political ads can no longer deceive voters about who financed them.

Promote Healthy Farms

Illinois has some of the Midwest's weakest rules for pollution from factory farms. Restoring the programs that aid small farmers will help more local, sustainable farms grow and thrive.

Don't Frack Illinois!

We need to stop fracking to protect our environment and health. And the situation is urgent now, as the state just finalized weak rules that will green light fracking here in Illinois.

Stop the Giveaway to Duke Energy

We urge you to defend the public by opposing a big giveaway to Duke Energy and other utilities. The NC Utilities Commission recently ruled that utilities can continue to charge us for taxes they no longer have to pay. That is clearly unfair. The Public Staff was created to defend the public from excessive corporate greed. Please take action in court or in other ways to stop this unfair giveaway of our money.

It is time for police reform nationwide!

Families across America urge the U.S. federal government to set a higher standard of policing by strengthening accountability mechanisms and securing critical reforms to end police brutality, biased racial profiling, and militarized policing targeting youth and communities of color across our nation.

Governor Brown: People of Faith call on you to stop fracking

Compelled by conscience and by our moral obligation to our communities of faith, to the health and safety of all Californians, to the well-being of future generations, and to creation itself, we, the undersigned people of faith, request your immediate intervention to halt the toxic practice of hydrofracking and the other industrial practices associated with unconventional oil and gas extraction in California by placing a moratorium on all enhanced stimulation techniques.

Free the Lakota Children

I urge President Obama to stop state kidnapping by South Dakota! The time has come to empower the Lakota tribes to have their own child and family service programs.
