Tell Governor Brownback no to pension cuts

In 2012, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback signed a landmark bill that delivered big tax cuts to high income earners and businesses. Less than two years after that tax cut, the state’s income tax revenues plummeted by a quarter-billion dollars – and now Brownback is pushing to use money for public employees’ pensions to instead cover the state’s ensuing budget shortfalls. -

Governor O'Malley — Follow New York's Lead and Ban Fracking in Maryland!

New York just made a monumental decision to ban fracking! After activists demanded that the health effects of fracking be studied, a two year investigation by the state's own commission confirmed what the movement has been saying all along, that fracking cannot be done safely. Now, I urge you to do the same. Hydraulic fracturing for oil and gas is a dangerous process that threatens our health and environment. I urge you to follow New York's lead and ban fracking in Maryland to protect all families from this dangerous process.

Tell Gov. Brewer to Drop The Lawsuit Attacking Arizona Immigrants and Families

Gov. Brewer and Attorney General Horne, end your lawsuit attacking long-time Arizona immigrants and families. With more workers and employers paying taxes under President Obama's new immigrant documentation policy, the State of Arizona would gain an additional $100 million in tax revenues over five years (according to the Center for American Progress). Instead of accepting this money, your administration is spending additional Arizona tax dollars fighting it. Why?

Supreme Court of Missouri: Disbar Bob McCulloch

This petition requests that the Supreme Court of Missouri, which has jurisdiction over this matter, hold hearings to determine whether Bob McCulloch is guilty of gross prosecutorial misconduct in his handling of grand jury deliberations in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

We still fight for Eric Garner

Bring federal charges against Eric Garner's killer and investigate the discriminatory NYPD patterns and practices, such as the "Broken Windows" policing tactic that led to this tragic police killing. Conduct a full and thorough investigation, convene a federal grand jury, arrest and prosecute Officer Daniel Pantaleo to the fullest extent of federal law.

Utah Needs Clean Energy

In 2008 Utah established a goal for 20% of electricity to come from renewable sources by 2025. Rocky Mountain Power, the state's biggest utility, is dragging its feet and proposes the equivalent of only ONE windmill of renewable energy between now and 2025. We need a guaranteed standard of 20% renewables by 2025.

President Obama and US Attorney General Holder: Secure justice for Mike Brown

A St. Louis grand jury has refused to indict Officer Darren Wilson, who targeted and killed 18-year-old Black teenager, Mike Brown, more than three months ago. I urge you to do everything in your power to secure justice for Mike Brown and the people of Missouri. I call on you to arrest and prosecute Officer Darren Wilson to the fullest extent of federal law, and to defend protesters' First Amendment right to free speech. As president and U.S. attorney general, you have both the power and responsibility to secure justice for Mike Brown and systemic reforms to law enforcement. I...

Disability Rights

After almost 40 years since California adopted state building codes that require physical access in the "built environment" and 25 years since Congress passed and the President signed the Americans with Disabilities Act, people with disabilities are still struggling with physical barriers across the country. Please join me in asking Congress, President Obama and our state legislature and governor to take action to assure that physical access for persons with disabilities becomes a reality.

Defend Pregnant Women’s Rights!

Dear Peggy, thank you. Thank you for taking a stand against UPS for violating the Pregnancy Discrimination Act and standing up for pregnant workers across the nation. Your SuperMom bravery is an inspiration to us all! Thousands of moms, dads, women, and men are standing with you today as you take your case to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Governor O'Malley: Ban fracking in Maryland

Governor O’Malley, the nation is watching. In your last two months as governor of Maryland, you have a unique opportunity to safeguard public health and the environment by keeping fracking out of the state. A ban on fracking in Maryland would set a strong example for elected officials around the country, one that promotes informed choices based on sound, independent science and places constituent safety and well-being first. What happens in Maryland impacts all of us. The time to ban fracking is now.

Thank Governor Cuomo For His Leadership On Fracking!

Governor Cuomo, thank you for your bold and determined leadership. By concluding that fracking is too dangerous to proceed in New York, you not only stood up for the people of your state but for people in communities across the country who are suffering from the consequences of fracking. You have earned a place in history.

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.
