Hot Petitions

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

Stop SFMTA (San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency)

As residents and taxpayers of San Francisco we believe that the SFMTA's first and foremost responsibility is to improve MUNI and to make MUNI a more desirable means of transportation. It is not SFMTA’s job to make owning and driving a motor vehicle more expensive and difficult. The SFMTA needs to be accountable to all the citizens of San Francisco. We need a balanced, unbiased municipal transportation policy. We respectfully request that the Mayor and District Supervisors immediately stop the SFMTA from: 1. Installing new parking meters and extending the hours of enforcement 2. Enforcing Sunday parking meters 3. Increasing...

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.

President Obama: Expand admin relief now!

We call on you to immediately exercise your executive authority to expand administrative relief to the millions of undocumented immigrants who would otherwise benefit from immigration reform. Over 267,000 LGBTQ undocumented immigrants and their families cannot wait for Congress to act when you have the power to end their pain!

Lee County Workers Deserve a Raise

Employees of Lee County in Florida are struggling to provide for their families. These workers keep our community safe and provide vital services every day. It’s time to give them a raise!

REI, Drop North Face Sweatshops!

In the last two years alone, over 1,500 Bangladeshi garment workers have died in preventable factory disasters. The North Face and its parent company, VF Corporation, have a particularly egregious track record with respect to worker rights in Bangladesh and beyond. We are asking REI, a self-styled progressive cooperative that once vowed not to carry clothing produced in sweatshops, to cut ties with The North Face and show that it will not tolerate apparel brands that abuse basic human rights.

TELL SUBWAY TO REINSTATE ELIZABETH!

Subway, you’ve already said that the firing of Elizabeth Taft from your Freeport, Texas store “should not have happened” and that you’ll “address this incident immediately with the store owner.” That’s not good enough. We’re outraged and call on you to make sure that Elizabeth is reinstated, and that sick employees receive sick days and are not forced to make sandwiches – putting the public’s health at risk.

Massachusetts: Say no to Citizens United and shadowy SuperPACs

Join us in calling for Steve Grossman to denounce the SuperPAC formed in his name and publicly request their ads be immediately taken down. These attacks, the first negative SuperPAC attack ads ever launched in a Massachusetts Democratic Primary, will only hurt our Party, our state and our democracy in the long-run.

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.

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.

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.
