Hot Petitions

We denounce the Koch Brothers

We, citizens of the United States, denounce you, Charles and David Koch, for using your vast wealth -- more than the combined wealth of the bottom 40 percent of Americans -- to corrupt our democracy. You are thereby undermining the most precious gift we possess, our democratic system of government. You deserve to be shamed and condemned by all Americans.

Mariano’s: Label GMOs

I support GMO labels. Mariano’s should take the lead in Illinois and start labeling store-brand products that contain GMOs. Consumers have a right to make healthy, responsible, and informed choices about the food we eat.

URGENT: Stop Congress from Rubber-Stamping Fracked Gas Exports!

The oil and gas industry is using the crisis in Ukraine as an excuse to pressure Congress to rubber stamp approval of liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports. But gas exports won't help the situation in Eastern Europe. It’s just a ploy by the oil and gas industry to increase fracking and export U.S. fracked gas to the highest bidder abroad, while causing irreparable damage to our climate and to water, air and health here at home. Protect our communities and climate – not big oil and gas industry profits.

Shut Down For Profit Prisons in Washington State

The GEO Group that runs the ICE Detention Center in Tacoma has a long history of abuse and using their money to influence politicians and laws to create anti-immigrant legislation to create more prisoners to increase their profits paid for by taxpayer dollars. We ask that our state leaders put a stop to this corruption and profiteering.

Washington State Legislators and Governor Inslee: Increase access to affordable dental care!

Steve McNall, of Lacey, Washington, lost his life to an infected tooth—because he couldn’t get affordable dental care. You can help prevent this tragedy from happening again. Without dental care, many children and adults live in pain, miss school or work and in extreme cases, face life-threatening emergencies—and like Steve, even death. More and more people get in line for charity care, or seek costly and temporary relief in emergency rooms. It doesn’t have to be this way. In other states, mid-level dental providers—trained professionals that work with a dentist to provide routine services—are helping to close the gap between...

Stop the Monsanto "Dream Bill"

I urge you to reject Rep. Pompeo's bill that preempts state's rights to require labeling of genetically engineered foods, or GMOs. This bill is supported by the Grocery Manufacturers Association, which represents Monsanto, Coca Cola, Nestle and other companies which want to restrict states and Congress from requiring GMO labels. I urge you to reject this industry bill and instead require GMO labels for all foods.

End Fracking in Nevada

We, the undersigned, stand together to reject hydraulic fracturing (fracking) in Nevada. We will not allow the natural beauty of our state and our limited water sources to be threatened by fracking. Mining has done enough damage to our home and we will not tolerate any more destruction.

Tell Walgreens: No More Toxic Products! Protect Illinois Families!

Walgreens, be a good neighbor and help protect Illinois families against toxic chemicals commonly found in cosmetics, personal care and other products. Join major retailers like Target and Walmart and “Mind the Store” by creating a robust action plan for how you’ll begin removing from your store shelves items containing chemicals on the Hazardous 100+ list.

Stop Predatory Overcharges for ER Visits

I urge you to sponsor legislation requiring subcontracted medical practitioners at ERs to accept insurance payments paid at the in-network rate as payment in full for their services. This legislation will stop predatory billing that exceeds reasonable and customary charges.

Expand Medicaid Coverage in North Carolina

We, the undersigned, urge the North Carolina House and Governor McCrory to consider the positive effects of Medicaid expansion on North Carolina communities, and not follow the North Carolina Senate in its intention to reject billions of health care dollars that are much needed in our state.

Make College 100% Tax-Deductible

We the undersigned urge you to acknowledge that education, just like office supplies and fuel for our cars, is a real business expense, and to therefore modify the tax code to make college tuition, expenses, and student loan repayments 100% tax deductible.

Sign the Petition to Gov. Jindal

Gov. Jindal, Last time I checked, abortion is still legal. Making it harder for women to get abortion isn’t going to change women’s minds – it’s only going to endanger them and get Louisiana a lot of negative media publicity, just like what’s happening in Texas. Don’t make Louisiana the next Texas.

Oregon—Stop the approval of GMO apples!

USDA should not approve the genetically engineered Arctic Apple. If approved by USDA, genetically engineered apples could end up everywhere from school lunches to grocery stores, posing risks to our health, our environment and apple farmers across the U.S. Unlabeled genetically engineered apples could contaminate conventional and organic foods including fruit slices, juice, baby foods or applesauce -- products predominantly consumed by children and babies, who are at increased risk for any adverse health effects. GMO apples may contaminate nearby organic and conventional apple orchards and could potentially cause valuable export markets to reject U.S. grown apples, as happened in...

Stop the testing of midrange sonar and testing of explosives in the Pacific Northwest.

The Naval Pacific Fleet should not be allowed to test a midrange sonar system damaging to threatened and endangered marine mammals in an area extending from Alaska to Northern California, including the inland waters of Washington. Additional training and testing should be curtailed until the cumulative effects of their activities have been studied in this already very stressed ecosystem.

Stop Xcel's Energy Savings Rollback

In Colorado, Xcel Energy is proposing to roll back their energy savings goals by a third. Don't allow Xcel Energy to lower their energy savings goals. Xcel should do everything it can to reduce energy waste.

Keep Washington State Parks funded and functional

Washington State Parks have been taking massive hits for years now. Park Rangers are being cut left and right and those that remain are being given more responsibilities than ever, often at a lower wage with less benefits. And sadly, some local parks have been forced to close. National Parks are a gleaming treasure in our country. Let's make them a priority.

VICTORY: New York Times Works to Inform Readers on Budget

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.

VICTORY: Senate Saves Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau - the agency championed by Senator Elizabeth Warren to be a voice for consumers in Washington - was endangered when Republicans in Congress refused to reconfirm Richard Cordray, the bureau's widely respected first director. That's why James Lardner of Americans for Financial Reform created a MoveOn Petition to the U.S. Senate, asking them to allow an up-or-down vote on Cordray's nomination. (Read More)
