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.

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.

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.

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.

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!"

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.

Don't force out 98-year-old San Francisco resident Mary Phillips

A 98-year-old San Francisco woman, Mary Phillips, is being forced from her home of 50 years because the building's owners, Urban Green Investments, headed by CEO David McCloskey, want to sell the place to take advantage of the city's booming real estate market. Rescind the attempted eviction at 55 Dolores Street of Sarah Brandt, who is Mary's caregiver. If Sarah is evicted, Mary would not be able to stay either, and the landlord knows it. Keep them both in their long-term homes. Protest: Call or email CEO David McCloskey, David@urbangreeninv.com, (415) 651-4441.

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.

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.

Petition to Protect Grays Harbor from dangerous Crude By Rail proposals.

Due to its explosive nature and the potential danger to our communities and the environment, crude oil should not be transported by rail through Washington State, stored in earthquake/tsunami zones or shipped by tanker through our waters. The permits for the three storage terminals in Grays Harbor should be denied. We urge you to do everything in your power to stop the construction of new oil and coal terminals in Grays Harbor and the State of Washington.

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,

Bee Friendly Duluth

We the undersigned call for the official creation of a Duluth city ordinance identical or similar to the "Bee Friendly Duluth" ordinance, which calls for banning the sale and use of neonicotinoid pesticides and items containing these pesticides. Should the Duluth City Council not create and pass an ordinance banning the use and sale of neonicotinoid pesticides as well as items containing them in any form, we the undersigned call for the ability to craft the ordinance and vote on it via special election as described by Section 51 of the Duluth Legislative Code Charter.

We would hope that you would welcome the chance to meet and...

VICTORY: New York Times Works to Inform Readers on Budget

The New York Times' tendency to report on budget numbers without contextualizing them was a problem - especially in light of the recent federal budget crisis. MoveOn member (and former staffer) Daniel Mintz and Robert Naiman of Just Foreign Policy started MoveOn Petitions to Times Public Editor Margaret Sullivan, asking her to institute a policy of always reporting budget numbers with percentages or comparisons.

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.
