Hot Petitions

You Represent Us ALL!

We the people of Texas respectfully request our elected representatives to schedule town hall meetings for the people of Greater Houston and across the state. Your duty extends not only to those who voted for you, but to all those living in this state. We cannot engage in meaningful dialogue if we cannot connect with you.

Sign the Petition: Demand Congress Use Its Power to Review Donald Trump’s Tax Returns

Donald Trump continues to own hundreds of businesses that are being run by his sons, and the potential conflicts of interest are widespread. Now, given the serious concerns about Trump’s potential ties to Russia, it is critical that Congress obtain and review the president’s tax returns―both to eliminate potential conflicts of interest and to ensure our national security. Those tax returns should then be released to the public. We deserve to know.

Senator Donnelly and Senator Young town hall meeting

We, the constituents of Indiana, would like to have an opportunity to speak directly with our Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly and our Republican Senator Todd Young in a town-hall or other public meeting in our communities. We would like our senators to hear directly about the issues that concern us.

Ask Expedia to Dump Trump Hotels

Expedia's CEO has made unequivocal statements against Trumps Immigration executive order. Expedia should take the next logical step and stop listing and booking Trump properties on any of their websites or apps. We are asking Expedia to lead by example and we will reward them with our travel dollars if they stand up and do so.

Emergency! Don't let Donald Trump cut PBS Kids

Congress: Please block Donald Trump's plan to slash funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, endangering PBS Kids, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, Dinosaur Train, Thomas and Friends, and other essential public programming for children.

Can We Talk, Senator Rubio? Please hold town hall meetings during the upcoming recess.

We, the unpaid organizers and unpaid participants in events and other calls to action, ask that you not attack and spread false information about regular citizens choosing to actively participate in democracy. We also respectfully request a town hall meeting to give the opportunity for concerned citizens of all party affiliations to better understand and clarify your positions and how you intend to represent the diverse people of the state of Florida.

Tell ICE to leave churches alone

Sending immigration agents to lie in wait outside a church is unacceptable. Please respect the ancient tradition of sanctuary by following both the letter and the spirit of the "sensitive locations" policy.

Governor Baker: Offer Safety to Muslim Immigrants and Refugees

Give shelter to Muslim immigrants and refugees escaping persecution from the war-torn areas of the Middle East and Africa by declaring Massachusetts a safe space for the displaced persons impacted by Donald Trump's executive action titled, "Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States."
