Move The NCAA Out of Indiana

Now that the Indiana governor has signed into law the right for businesses to freely discriminate under the guise of religious freedom, the NCAA should relocate its national headquarters. That move would be consistent with the organization's sanctioning of both South Carolina and Mississippi for state-sponsored bigotry.

Congress: Stop the Raid on Student Aid

In a time when students are struggling more than ever, we need members of both parties to reject the proposed $150 billion in cuts to funding for the Pell Grant, the subsidized loan program, Public Service Loan Forgiveness, and income-based repayment programs.

Tell lawmakers to stop Georgia's hate bill.

Georgia Lawmakers: We respectfully urge you to oppose Sen. McKoon's religious "freedom" bill. It is clear that this legislation would open the door to discrimination and abuse in Georgia. Take a stand for equality and civil rights by striking down this shameful bill.

Recall Mike Pence

Mike Pence has taken the state hostage and gone against the will of millions of Hoosiers. Beware the tyranny of the majority. Sign up for a recall election.

Reject the Freedom of Religion in Marriage Protection Act

Reject the Freedom of Religion in Marriage Protection Act because it is discriminatory, unnecessary, and ultimately will not survive a legal challenge. It will only cause further expensive litigation and harm to our state. The Alabama laws banning same-sex marriage have already been ruled unconstitutional. The State of Alabama has faced several expensive lawsuits because of their stance against marriage equality, and this bill will only create further litigation against the state and organizations who use this law as a shield for discrimination. The State of Alabama has already wasted enough taxpayer money on this issue, at a time when...

Third-degree burn. McDonald's "treatment"? MUSTARD.

Four out of five fast food workers have been burned on the job—most repeatedly, many badly. To make matters worse, many fast food restaurants don’t even have a properly-equipped and accessible first aid kit and instead try to treat workers’ injuries with mustard and other condiments instead of getting them the treatment they need. It is unconscionable that fast food companies value their own profits over basic safety for their workers. I urge you to investigate the fast food industry’s failure to provide safe working conditions or proper treatment for severe injuries.

Tell Anheuser-Busch to support clean water

Clean, abundant water is vital to beer making, and many breweries are supporting the proposed federal rule designed to restore protections to our streams and drinking water. As the nation’s largest brewer, Anheuser-Busch has a big stake in ensuring our waters are protected. However, it’s clear Anheuser-Busch has not publicly supported the clean water rule, and there is even evidence to suggest the company is working to block it. Anheuser-Busch makes a product beloved by millions that depends on clean water. Please make a clear and public statement in support of the Waters of the U.S. Rule.

Rep. Tom Reed: Stop Supporting People Like George Zimmerman Carrying a Concealed Weapon in NYS!

We, the undersigned people of the 23rd Congressional District of New York State, are deeply disappointed and troubled by Representative Tom Reed's cosponsorship of the federally-mandated concealed carry bill, H.R.402. This bill would allow someone like George Zimmerman to carry a concealed gun anywhere in our state, including places like Times Square and Niagara Falls, which are visited by millions each year.

Sign the petition to support striking Baja California farm workers

I am appalled by reports coming out of the export ag region of San Quintín in Baja CA. Having learned that workers receive such low wages that they often cannot afford to feed their families a decent meal everyday, I cannot stand by and do nothing. I implore you to hold your suppliers accountable for abiding by the law, paying decent wages, and treating their workers with dignity. I believe worker testimony claiming that Driscoll growers are failing miserably in this regard. I ask that you demand more from them.

Gov. Bullock: Veto concealed carry without a permit

The Montana Legislature just passed a bill (HB 298) to allow almost any adult to carry a concealed weapon without a permit. Stop this dangerous and ill-considered bill. Having concealed weapons everywhere is dangerous for law enforcement and the public! If you have to carry a concealed weapon, you should at least have a permit.

Rep. McClintock: Vote Against Cuts To Food Stamps

When kids are hungry, they struggle to learn. How can we allow kids in America to show up for school so hungry they can't focus or learn? I urge you to oppose the deep cuts to the food stamp (SNAP) program that were recently proposed in the House budget.

Expand Medicaid, Pete

Expanding Medicaid in Nebraska will not only help me but many working citizens across the state of Nebraska. It will also keep critical care hospitals in Rural Nebraska open. I was born in one of these critical care hospitals, and without these hospitals open in Western Nebraska where the land is vast, many people live more than 20 miles from the nearest town and sometimes more than 50 miles from the nearest hospital. It is very important that people can get emergency care quickly, as quickly as possible. But without Medicaid expansion, many of these critical care hospitals will have...

Save IRIS in Wisconsin

IRIS helps to keep the disabled and the elderly more independent and in their homes. Our Govener, Scott Walker is going to take that away!

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.
