Fire the police officer who shot Charles Kinsey

For too long, the police officers who shoot and attack Black men and woman have failed to be held responsible for their crimes. If the investigation confirms the facts that have been reported, the police officer who shot Charles Kinsey, an unarmed Florida therapist, must be fired and barred from working in the police department ever again.

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...

Do Not Disclose National Security Information to Donald Trump

We the people feel the Republican Presidential candidate, Donald J. Trump, to be a significant threat to United States national security. We urge the White House, Defense Department, Homeland Security, FBI, NSA, CIA, Justice Department and any other government entity to withhold sensitive information pertaining to national security--foreign or domestic--from Donald Trump and his campaign. We believe that imparting national security information to Mr. Trump places the people of the United States and her allies in grave danger.

Add your name: We are the movement for Black lives

Our work remains undone until our lives are free of violence. That is the future we imagine. Until that day comes: * We pledge togetherness—we will not allow ourselves to be divided. * We pledge to allow our thinking and actions to be guided by love. * We pledge to bring courage and power into our communities, and stop their flow out. * We pledge not to be controlled by fear, but instead by our dreams.

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.

STOP Bobcat and Wolf Fur Export!

President Obama, We urge you to publicly review the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s export program, which facilitates the export of thousands of bobcat and wolf pelts each year, and continues to operate without environmental oversight. To date, the Service has refused to carefully consider the environmental impacts of not only the bobcat and wolf pelt export, but the effect on other species that are also caught and killed in traps.

Justice for Alton Sterling

The Department of Justice must bring charges against the Baton Rouge police officers who killed Alton Sterling. Over and over again, we have been forced to witness the killings of Black people on video without any accountability. Local prosecutors have proven to be almost completely opposed to bringing charges against police. Now that the Department of Justice is leading the investigation, you have the authority to swiftly resolve this tragedy by prosecuting the officers who treated Alton Sterling's life with such disregard. Both you and President Obama have repeatedly emphasized the need to build trust between police and communities but...

Governor Charlie Baker: Support Attorney General Maura Healey's Enforcement of the Massachusetts Assault Weapons Ban

Dear Governor Baker, I'm writing to ask you to stand with Attorney General Maura Healey in her effort to enforce the Massachusetts assault weapons ban, which has been in place for 18 years. As you know, AR-15 style assault rifles have killed hundreds of people in mass shootings across the country, including in Orlando, Newtown, Baton Rouge, San Bernardino, and Aurora. In the wake of these tragedies, we've witnessed too many empty expressions of sympathy, and too few elected officials who have had the courage to stand up to the gun lobby and actually do something. In Massachusetts, Attorney General...

Save Bronx's Only No Kill Shelter, New Beginning Animal Rescue

"New Beginning Animal Rescue" (NBAR), a no-kill shelter, will be forced to close it's doors due to lack of funding. This shelter has been scraping by with small donations and volunteers from the Bronx Community since 2010 without any city funding. However due to higher rent and veterinary costs, NBAR is literally on it's last leg. The sad realitiy is that most of their resident cats and dogs will be end up in Animal Care and Control and will killed them if this shelter closed. NBAR has opened its doors to school groups and youths at risk. These children and...

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.

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.
