Hot Petitions

DuPont: Stop putting Wall Street over my health

I am dying from C-8, a chemical that DuPont deliberately dumped into the Ohio River and landfills, where it made its way into the water me, my family, and thousands of others drink every day. DuPont already agreed to compensate me and the other victims of its misconduct, but the company is delaying helping us in order to line the pockets of a couple of Wall Street billionaires. People are dying. It’s time to put health over Wall Street profits.

DNC: Support Bernie Sanders' progressive agenda

It's time for the Democratic Party to listen to the people. Adopt a progressive platform calling for a $15-an-hour minimum wage, an end to our disastrous trade policies, a Medicare-for-all health care system, the break up of Wall Street financial institutions, an end to fracking in our country, free college and university tuition, and a carbon tax to effectively address our human-caused climate crisis.

Abolish super delegates in Oregon

Maine has done it. Oregon should follow suit. Super delegates were created to thwart the will of the people. It's time for super delegates to go the way of the dinosaurs. Super delegates are an affront to democracy. Getting rid of super delegates won't in and of itself democratize the Democratic Party, but it is a good first step.

Tell President Obama: No new drilling!

As we work to stop the worst impacts of climate change, it’s clear that drilling off our coasts moves us in the wrong direction. I urge you to retract plans to drill in the Arctic and the Gulf.

Remove Debbie Wasserman Schultz as DNC Chair

As a result of a complete and total lack of coordinated messaging, and horrific dissemination of available resources, all ending in the absolute failure of her mission, Debbie Wasserman Schultz must resign or be removed as DNC Chair.

Obama: Don't double down on COAL in the Four Corners

President Obama, we urge you to reconsider your administration’s support for coal-fired power in the Four Corners region. It is a legacy unfit for any leader, much less the leadership of a country once considered pioneers in technological and environmental innovation. This extension condemns another generation to a quarter century of poor air and water quality and degraded public health. It is an economic gamble that robs the region of the opportunity to invest in a foundation for a clean and economically sustainable energy future. Supporting investment in a dying and dangerous industry, instead of a clean and growing one,...

Demand Fairness For Verizon Workers

39,000 CWA and IBEW Union Workers at Verizon had no choice but to go on strike. Verizon's plan at the bargaining table was to control our lives by telling us where we can live and if and when we will see our families. A corporation that makes 1.5 Billion dollars a month in profits can afford to treat their workers and retirees with respect. Tell Verizon to treat their workers and retirees with fairness and dignity by taking their incredibly retrogressive demands off the table.

Tell the DNC and RNC: Quit supporting fossil fuels!

It’s time to remove fossil fuel reliance from your party platforms and instead commit to a swift, just transition to a 100% renewable energy future.

 Your current policy platforms support fracking and fossil fuel infrastructure, which are devastating our communities. From toxic gas leaks and oil spills to poisoned drinking water supplies and ever worsening climate change, it’s clear that we need to ditch dirty fossil fuels. I urge you to support a ban on fracking and keep fossil fuels in the ground.

Free Chelsea Manning

President Obama should commute the sentence of heroic whistleblower Chelsea Manning, who has been in prison since 2010 for exposing the killing of journalists and civilians in Baghdad in July 2007.

Pres. Obama: Take Action against Violent Policing

Use an executive order to enforce and expand federal bans on discriminatory and violent policing; strengthen current disciplinary mechanisms for law enforcement nationwide; and direct the Department of Justice and the FBI to investigate and prosecute police misconduct more aggressively.

FDA: It's time for real action to save antibiotics

We cannot continue practices that promote the rise and spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria. The superbugs aren't taking their time. In fact, as factory farms continue to administer antibiotics to animals that aren't sick, the superbugs are rising and spreading even more quickly. As they do, doctors are forced to use more drastic tools to fight a growing number of infections, or are losing their ability to treat patients altogether. It makes no sense to allow the routine use of antibiotics to continue. I urge you to pass strong limits on the routine use of antibiotics on factory farms.

Stop giving public pension money to Wall Street hedge funds now.

Reducing the investment in high-priced hedge funds and investing more prudently could save New Jersey taxpayers $20 billion over the next 30 years without making a single change to the pensions of the workers. Public Worker pension funds shouldn't be a piggy bank for Wall Street financiers. Stop the overuse of high-priced hedge funds now.

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.

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.
