Keep Koch money out of the University of Arizona

The University of Arizona (UofA) must be held to the highest standards. Compromising UofA's integrity—by accepting any money from the Koch brothers and/or their affiliated organizations—would make the UofA a hostage to these billionaires. Accepting dark money obligates universities to sanction the Dark Ages of the Koch brothers' agenda.

Tell Orange County to Ban Fracking Now!

I urge you to protect Orange County communities and ban fracking now. Across the country, fracking has caused contamination of drinking water, toxic air pollution and property damage. The fracking operations in north Orange County sit atop the county's groundwater basin that provides drinking water to 2.4 million people. Fracking is not worth the risk. With increasing threats of drought and climate change, we need to act now to protect our drinking water. Please support a ban on fracking in Orange County.

Coca-Cola: Stop Funding Anti-Labeling Campaigns

I was disappointed to learn that Coca-Cola contributed more than $3.2 million to defeat the state initiatives to label genetically engineered foods (or GMOs) in California and Washington. Please stop trying to keep us in the dark about GE foods, and issue a public statement that Coca-Cola will no longer contribute money to anti-labeling efforts.

Hillary Clinton: It's time to dump Monsanto and support public health, and regenerative, organic agriculture

Speaking at this year's BIO International Convention, you reiterated your support for genetically modified organisms (GMOs). You said the industry needs "a better vocabulary" to change negative public perception about GMO agriculture. But mounting scientific evidence says the public is right to be concerned about the impact of Monsanto's GMO crops and food on the environment, public health and global warming. We don't need a better vocabulary. We need leaders who will stand up to Monsanto. As a mother, soon-to-be grandmother and potential future candidate for U.S. president, please do what's right, not what the biotech industry lobbyists want you...

Time Warner: Don't Sell To Rupert Murdoch

Don't sell Time Warner to Rupert Murdoch. A combined Time Warner and 21st Century Fox would create a company so large that it would radically transform the U.S. media landscape. It would be terrible for consumers and the market.

Urge House members to support the "Not My Boss' Business Act"

As your constituent, I want to make sure you know that I strongly support the "Not My Boss' Business" Act. Billionaire CEOs shouldn't get a say over what happens in their employees' bedrooms and shouldn't get to impose their religious beliefs on everyone they manage. Please tell me where you stand on the "Not My Boss' Business" Act.

Residential Honey Beekeeping

Residential honey beekeeping should fall under state, not city, jurisdiction to end discrimination occurring at the city level. Management oversight should reside with the state's Beekeepers Association.

Cuomo: Come Clean!

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been reported to use the power of his office to obstruct a NY State investigation into his corruption practices. This is the deepest betrayal of public trust and he has to go.

Tell Congress to vote YES on Hobby Lobby fix!

Tell Congress: "I urge you to fix the shortsighted and dangerous U.S. Supreme Court Hobby Lobby ruling and make sure that bosses are not involved in making women's birth control decisions. Vote YES on the Protect Women’s Health from Corporate Interference Act!"

Tell Chris Christie to Schedule and Attend a Public Town Hall Forum in Newark!

As leaders and members of the Newark Parents Union, the Newark Students Union, NJ Communities United and our many allies and partners throughout the City of Newark, we hereby formally request that you schedule and attend a town hall in Newark that’s open to all residents of the city. We have many questions that we’d like you to answer and we would like to share our vision of a strong Newark and strong New Jersey with you. As you claim, Newark is where you were born and raised. We would hope that you would welcome the chance to meet and...

Save Hofmann Forest from being destroyed

NC State University should not sell Hofmann Forest (a 79,000-acre tract of public land in coastal North Carolina) to a private businessman to be bulldozed into cornfields and golf courses. Hofmann Forest should be permanently protected from development, and opened back up for the public to enjoy.

Encourage the growth of rooftop solar systems!

Dear Public Utilities Commission of Nevada, I urge you to support policies that encourage the growth of rooftop solar systems throughout Nevada. Protection of this policy, known as “net metering,” will continue to create Nevada jobs, allow individual investments in clean energy, stabilize our rates for the coming decades and foster economic growth by decreasing our dependence on fossil fuels. Supporting the growth of rooftop solar is supporting Nevada! Sincerely,

Defend Voting from Religious Extremism

We urge Lori Scott, Brevard County Supervisor of Elections to find an immediate alternative for polling places that feature discriminatory and religious language designed to influence voting during elections. We strongly object to the biased, politically-motivated displays of the staff of the Holy Name of Jesus Church currently serving as a designated polling place for Precincts 432, 508, 515 on their huge compound on Election Day. Political messaging seen on these displays and signage on Election Day constitute "electioneering communications" and do not conform to the requirements laid out by the Florida Division of Elections. As churches are treated as...

Reduce carbon emissions in Nevada!

Dear Governor Sandoval, I support Nevada in developing its own plan to reduce carbon dioxide pollution, as recently called for in the EPA’s Clean Power Plan. Thanks to your leadership on developing a clean energy economy during last year's legislative session, our state is already on a path to reducing carbon emissions through clean energy projects. By developing our own plan to reduce carbon emissions, Nevada will build on our already established path to a 21st century electric power system that creates local jobs, stabilizes our rates for the coming decades and fosters economic growth by decreasing our dependence on...

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. This tragedy motivated Philadelphia parent Jesse Bacon to start a MoveOn Petition to Governor Tom Corbett, asking him to stop withholding $45 million of funding from Philadelphia schools.

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.
