Hold Wells Fargo Executives Accountable

Dear Department of Justice, Wells Fargo employees broke the law by opening over two million bogus bank and credit card accounts without its customers' consent. While 5,300 low-level employees were fired because of this, top executives are let off the hook. Shareholders, consumers, and low-level employees are bearing the burden of bank misconduct, when in fact, we need to hold top executives accountable for this fraud. Please investigate Wells Fargo to determine whether criminal misconduct was condoned or covered-up by senior officials. Sincerely,

Protect National Forests from Fracking

Using a grossly outdated resource management plan, the Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service have auctioned over 20,000 acres of the Santa Fe National Forest for oil and gas development. These government agencies have failed to properly analyze the impacts of modern fracking and are endangering New Mexico’s air, water, and public lands. Western Environmental Law Center recently filed a federal lawsuit to stop fracking in this previously undeveloped wilderness.

Block the Enbridge-Spectra Merger!

I urge you to block the Enbridge-Spectra merger. This merger would create the largest oil and gas infrastructure corporation in North America, able to control the energy market, further influence government regulations, and bring more fracking and dangerous pipelines to our communities. We don’t want a future tied to dirty fossil fuels. Please reject the Enbridge-Spectra merger and stop this dirty energy monopoly from taking control of our communities and environment.

KAXE Radio: Stop accepting funding from Enbridge

Stop accepting financial support from Enbridge, an investor in the North Dakota Access Pipeline being represented by a military police force and the Morton County Sheriff's Department, who attempts to suppress journalism and arrest Water Protectors with bogus misdemeanor charges resulting in strip searches and who hired a private security firm whose dogs attacked peaceful protestors.

Tell School Boards and Superintendents: Let's end hatred and discrimination in the classroom

All children deserve to feel like they belong, regardless of their ethnicity or culture, their faith or nationality, their gender identity or sexual orientation. Schools should be a safe haven for students to be accepted and included so that they can learn and grow. It's time for school leaders to take charge. Join our call: It’s time to change the culture of our schools and usher in a day where "inclusion is the new cool in school!"

No Giant Bonuses for Scamming Wells Fargo Customers

Wells Fargo created more than 2 million fake deposit and credit-card accounts, and then charged unknowing customers for them. Yet, the Wells Fargo executive who oversaw this misconduct isn’t being fired, they’re retiring--and walking away with almost $125 million in total compensation.

Stand up for the Bureau Fighting Financial Scams

Elizabeth Warren's brainchild – the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) – has done crucial work to safeguard Americans against the abusive practices of big banks, credit card companies, and predatory lenders. Congress must protect the CFPB's important work.

Putting the brakes on clean vehicles in California? No way!

I want more zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) on the road and support strong policies, like the ZEV Mandate, that will lead to at least 1.5 million ZEVs on California’s roads by 2025. By accelerating the transition to electric vehicles, we can clean up our air and improve public health, especially in our most polluted communities, reduce global warming pollution, save Californians money at the pump, and stimulate economic growth.

Stop the violence against the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe

By turning their dogs loose on protestors, the security guards hired by Dakota Access, LLC acted in a reckless and inhumane manner. The guards had no uniforms, drove vehicles with out-of-state plates, and appeared to have little or no training. It's unclear whether or not they're even licensed to operate in the state. The North Dakota Private Investigation and Security Board must investigate the actions of the private security guards hired by Dakota Access and ensure they are properly trained and licensed to operate in North Dakota.

Terence Crutcher died for being Black. Indict Officer Betty Shelby.

Indict Officer Betty Shelby for killing Terence Crutcher, an unarmed father of four, who posed no threat to her. The people of Tulsa are counting on you to do the right thing and hold Tulsa police accountable. You must indict and fully investigate Officer Shelby for her role in the killing. Police are not above the law, and when someone kills someone, today's law states that they should be arrested—not at home on paid administrative leave.

DA Devon Anderson is sending Black folks to jail for being poor

I am writing to ask you to resign from your role as Harris County District Attorney. Along with people across the world, I was appalled to learn that your office had a rape victim suffering from mental trauma and illness detained so that she would testify at trial. The fact this happened under your watch and that you have defended these action has convinced me that you are not fit to hold your current office. You should remove yourself from office. It is time for new leadership that treats people with respect and dignity.

Transgender rights

Transgender people deserve civil rights in all 50 states. We've been granted them in 18 states and DC, but this issue, like gay marriage, is not the decision of the states, no more than slavery was. Please make it a federal law!

Bostonians say NO to Lifting the Charter Cap (Question 2)

We, the undersigned students, parents and residents of Boston, urge Massachusetts voters to vote NO on ballot Question 2. If passed, Question 2 would lift the current charter cap and permit up to 12 additional charter schools each year, indefinitely, with no additional funding. Question 2 will hurt our city and our children. Its passage will • Significantly reduce district, school, and wider municipal budgets; • Increase segregation and diminish resources for English Language Learners and Students with Disabilities; • Decrease student and parent voice in the governance of our schools; • Lead to public school closures, with a disproportionate...

TAKE ACTION: Get these hormone-disrupting chemicals out of our food!

I am deeply concerned that toxic chemicals called phthalates are allowed to be used as food additives. Exposure to this class of chemicals during pregnancy is linked to serious impairments to children's brains and to the reproductive systems of boys. Exposures during childhood are associated with developmental delays and serious learning disabilities. We must do a better job of protecting our children from chemicals. I urge the FDA to stop allowing toxic phthalates to be used as food additives. The brain development and reproductive capacity of a generation of children are on the line. Thank you for your consideration of...

President Obama: Protect the Grand Canyon from toxic mining

I urge you to protect the Grand Canyon from nearby uranium mining by designating the Greater Grand Canyon Heritage National Monument. Doing so will permanently protect this sacred place for generations to come and set a precedent for protecting other special places across the country from reckless threats.

Stand with the Water Protectors of Standing Rock

We, the undersigned voters of New Mexico, urge you to join the 19 members of congress who have signed onto the letter to President Obama urging him to rescind federal permits for the controversial $3.7 billion Dakota Access oil pipeline and embark on a new environmental review of the project. As Rep. Raúl Grijalva of Arizona, the top Democrat on the House Natural Resources Committee, and other courageous congress people have said, the administration needs to go further than simply pausing construction on a portion of the line to require a new, more thorough environmental review of the full 1,134-mile...

Reno Police Department: Hold The Driver of The Car, Who Used His Vehicle as A Weapon, Accountable!!!

Tell Reno Police to hold the driver of the white truck, who viciously drove his truck through a group of protestors accountable. Arrest and charge him with the hate crime he committed. On Oct. 10, 2016 in Reno, Nevada, two men in a white pick-up truck angrily drove through a group of protestors injuring 5. Earlier in the night the same vehicle and men drove by and shouted racial slurs to the group, then drove down the street, turned around, approached them, began harassing them, and then revved up his engine and drove over the top of the group. They...

Demand Apple Pay What It Owes

In light of the European Commission’s ruling that Apple owes up to $14.5 billion in back taxes to Ireland on its European profits, it is critical that the Treasury Department immediately investigate Apple’s profit shifting and tax dodging here in the United States. We demand that the Treasury act in the best interests of the American people and ensure that Apple pays all of the taxes it owes here at home.

Add your name: We are the movement for Black lives

Our work remains undone until our lives are free of violence. That is the future we imagine. Until that day comes: * We pledge togetherness—we will not allow ourselves to be divided. * We pledge to allow our thinking and actions to be guided by love. * We pledge to bring courage and power into our communities, and stop their flow out. * We pledge not to be controlled by fear, but instead by our dreams.

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: 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.
