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.

A frack-free Christmas

Your polluting fracking operation next to Gary Baumgardner’s home in Union Township is about to ruin their annual Christmas dinner tradition. Gary’s granddaughter and her parents can’t attend this yearly tradition due to the overwhelming pollution. Don't be a grinch this Christmas. Shut down your operation for one day so the family can enjoy the holiday together.

NO KINDER MOGAN CO2 PIPELINE THROUGH ABO PASS IN NEW MEXICO

PLEASE TAKE A STAND AGAINST THESE DANGEROUS PIPELINES WHICH FIND THE LEAST EXPENSIVE ROUTE RATHER THAN THE LEAST INVASIVE ROUTE. KINDER MORGAN HAS A HISTORY OF EPA VIOLATIONS AND ALLEGATIONS OF NEGLECT FOR THEIR PIPELINES THAT RUN THROUGH PRIVATE PROPERTY. PLEASE ASK OUR GOVERNMENT REPRESENTATIVES AND THE BLM TO TAKE A STAND FOR THE PEOPLE THEY REPRESENT BY MAKING IT MANDATORY THAT ANY AND ALL PIPELINES MUST BE HIGHLY MAINTAINED, AS SAFE, AND AS FAR AWAY FROM RESIDENCES HUMANLY POSSIBLE.

Protect The Pacific Fisher From Imminent Extinction

I urge you to list the Pacific fisher West Coast population as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. As you know, fishers have declined dramatically in recent decades due to trapping, logging, and fire. Climate change is amplifying these risks. Recently, super-toxic rat poisons have shown up as a new threat to fishers. Eighty-five percent of fishers studied from 2012 to 2014 had rodent poisons in their blood. Thirteen fishers were found poisoned to death in California during that time. U.S. Forest Service researchers have concluded that the southern Sierra fisher population, which is critical to the survival of the...

Keep a prison program for mothers and children alive

The Family Preservation Program, located in Oregon's Coffee Creek Women's Correctional Facility, is scheduled to be shut down at the end of 2014. The program is desperately needed to help women and their children. The prison claims there are other programs, but if you look closely, you will find the other programs serve very few women or children and most of them are annual events rather than on-going programs. Not a single woman who has been in this program has reoffended upon her release. Please do not shut down this program.

Governor Cuomo: We Demand Action NOW—Appoint Attorney General Eric Schneiderman via Executive Order to Investigate and, if Necessary, Prosecute Cases Involving Unarmed Civilians Killed by Police Officers.

Many New Yorkers have felt angry, sorrowful and powerless since the ruling of no indictment in the case of the choking death of Eric Garner at the hands of a New York City Police Officer. This ruling, along with other recent national events, has raised serious questions about the ability of district attorneys to remain impartial when investigating police misconduct. It’s crucial that New York has a separate prosecutor, with no connection to local police departments, to investigate cases of alleged police misconduct. We do not have to feel powerless. There IS a way to address this injustice. Please sign...

Report All Police-Involved Deaths to the FBI

Currently only 4 percent, or 700 out of the nation's 17,000 police departments, report police-involved shootings to the FBI. There is therefore no systematic record of how many Americans are killed by guns or any other means while in police custody. As President Obama begins to address the issue as it has manifested itself in Ferguson, New York City, and across the country, please urge him to require every police department that receives federal aid to report all such incidents to the FBI.

Condemn Cory Gardner's broken promise on immigration

On the campaign trail this year, Cory Gardner made a lot of promises. One of them was to support sane policies to reform our nation’s broken immigration system. Gardner hasn’t even been sworn in yet, and he is already backpedaling. This week, Gardner voted to deport millions of immigrants, including parents of American citizens--exactly what progressives were afraid he would do if elected. We are outraged at Gardner's failure to stand by immigrants as he promised mere weeks ago.

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.
